If you are in the unfortunate position of needing bed bug treatments Sydney has many companies that can rid your home of these pests. Bed bugs are tiny parasites that feed on human blood and can be annoying and unpleasant although they don’t actually spread disease. If you have bed bugs in your home you may need to call in a professional exterminator, although there are also steps to take before you pick up the phone. Wash all bedding, sheets and clothing in warm or hot water, and place any stuffed animals or shoes in the dryer for about 20 minutes. Your bed, carpets and surrounding areas should be vacuumed thoroughly and frequently, and you should always immediately dispose of the vacuum cleaner bag. Finally, use a zippered plastic cover to encase your mattress; that way any remaining bed bugs will starve to death within a year.
