Bed Bugs Everywhere!
By Ruan Van Zyl
Cimex lectularius, aka the Bed Bug, is a public nuisance and exhibits traits of agoraphobia and nocturnal activity. These insects are known for being host intimate – feeding upon the host’s blood – and their infestations being morally repugnant. Wherever Bed Bugs are present they represent a severe threat to the wellbeing and health of the occupant or homeowner.
Phoresy, or phoresis (Gk) implies “being carried”, and refers to a new strategy of dispersal whereupon a creature is transported to another location by means of hitching a ride on another animal while searching for food. The Bed Bug ecology and behaviour favours this means of travel highly, and often they’re not just hitching a ride on your pet but on your own personal belongings.  This means of travel is exploited by the bed bug in so many ways as people move their own belongings, or stuff, around frequently.
• Everyone likes having stuff
• Everyone likes their own stuff
• Everyone creates stuff
• Everyone purchases stuff
• Everyone chucks stuff away
• Everyone loses their stuff
• Some people have their stuff stolen
• Others often hoard stuff
• And some even store their stuff
• People import and export stuff
• Most people always want more stuff
• Some people can even “Fit 10kg of stuff into a 5kg bucket of stuff!”
As you can see you, your neighbour, and pretty much everyone else is at some point during the day in contact with belongings and things, stuff. As such it’s very important to know where bed bugs like taking refuge. The following list addressing most of the popular bed bug hideouts:
• Between magazines, loose cardboard, newspapers or piles of unused paper.
• Coat hangers
• Jewellery
• Wheel chairs or scooters
• The interiors of artificial limbs or prosthetics
• Skin folds, orifices and bandaged areas upon a person
• Cigarette packages
• Old cans or bottles
• On or around your pets’ paraphernalia, such as bowls/food and water dishes
• As well as on the body of your actual pet, check around their collar

"We first used A1 Pest Control a few years ago when we noticed a few termites under a wine barrell in the rear yard of our home. We asked A1 Pest Control Sydney to pay us a visit to have a thorough termite inspection of our home. Bruce and his crew were on time, and very well presented. They explained how they would get rid of the termite infestation using a low toxic method and how their Thermal cameras worked, It worked very well and now we can sleep at night!"

"We have been using Bruce form A1 Pest Control for over 4 years now. We bought our new house on the Hills Area, and moved in. our neighbours had problem with rodents and spiders so they are using A1 next door. I asked them if they could come over and treat our house too, as i didn't want to chase pest around our home. The service was not only effective, but carried out without any smelly fumes that we have experienced in our last house. They solved problem next door and I haven't seen a bug since."

"A1 Pest Control exterminators where great! I'm very happy to say that they solved a bed bug problem that I had after we had visitors from overseas visit us. I would recommend A1 Pest Control to anyone needing a safe and effective treatment of bed bugs"

"Bruce solved our commercial pest control problem in Castle Hill. Cockroaches were throughout our factory and they were completely gone after two visits from his exterminators. Just seeing one cockroach can lose us clients. I know now everyhing is ok, and our reputation is intact"
