Bed bugs are on the increase as more people than ever before travel world wide and unbeknown to them are giving these pests a free ride!

Blood sucking parasites with reddish-brown oval bodies usually 4 – 5mm in length.

Well developed legs allow them to crawl up almost any vertical surface such as walls and beg legs.

Bed bugs will harbour in mattresses, headboards, wall paper creases, electrical sockets, in fact the tiniest of cracks and crevices during the daytime, and will emerge to feed preferably on humans at night.

Laying up to 500 eggs they are prolific breeders with eggs hatching in a matter of days in the perfect conditions.

If you are in the hotel or bed and breakfast industry it is vital that you make regular checks for bed bugs as an infestation is not necessarily due to poor hygiene practice but is often the result of your guests translocating bed bugs from one hotel to another.

This could potentially cost you thousands of pounds in lost revenue should you receive complaints.

Bed bug awareness can be integrated as part of a tailored pest prevention programme.


  • Live adults or nymphs on bedding or headboard.
  • Black spotting marks in harbourage areas, on mattresses and headboards.
  • Bloodspots appearing on bed sheets.

How best to treat Bed Bugs?



This usually consist of up to three treatments, over the period of four weeks

Gary and Wendi at Excel Pest Management recently attended my ageing Auntie’s flat to investigate mice on the premises. Their response time and service was second to none and they went the ‘extra mile’ to ensure that my Auntie can now sleep peacefully at night without having to worry about vermin.
I would certainly recommend Excel Pest Control to get rid of your pests.

goodbye wasps

We had a problem with wasps nests which was resolved very quickly. Excellent service provided, punctual, reliable and thorough. If we have any further problems we now know who to contact.


We just moved into a property and realised the place was riddled in fleas. We called excel pest management and he reacted fast. He was with us within 24h of the phone call. He came in done the first spray which did the job then 2 weeks later done the second lot of spraying to be sure all eggs and fleas have gone. Really pleased with his service and would recommend to anyone with the same problem. Fantastic job done!!
