Bed Bugs (Cimex Lectularius) Life Cycle:

Bed bugs are flat, reddish-brown, oval insects up to 4 to 5 mm long or the size of an apple seed. Swollen and reddish after a blood meal.

Bed bugs only feed on blood. Under cool conditions, bed bugs have been able to survive up to a year without a meal.

They prefer to be more active at night when the host is asleep.

Found in cracks and crevices, including mattress, sheets, furniture, behind baseboards, electrical outlet plates and picture frames. Often found in hotels, where they can travel from room to room and in visitors’ luggage or other personal belongings such as purses and briefcases.

Females can deposit one to five eggs a day, and may lay 200 to 500 eggs in a lifetime. Under normal room temperatures and with an adequate food supply, they can live for more than 300 days.













Mode of Treatment:

The treatment is done by spraying the insecticide, especially in the seams of the mattress, cracks , crevices all bedding material, seating arrangement, wooden structure and other places infested by bed bugs. The bed bugs die on contact with the insecticide

Two treatments are needed in the interval of 15 days to control the infestations. We do both odorless treatment & treatment with odor.

Wood Borer Control

Pest Cover - Wood borer – (Powder Post beetle)

They are very destructive and reduce precious wood into dust. The minute holes created by the Wood Borer from where the yellowish powder falls, is the sign of infestation. Wood Borers are about 4mm long and dark brown to black in colour. They spend their life in wood. And thus they live in their food. They infest the internal structure of wooden material and convert it into powder form. Depending on favorable conditions like moisture level, temperature they can infest to other adjacent furniture as the powder post beetle can fly from one place to another. The adults finally emerge by making tiny pin size holes. The life cycle of woodborers is about one year.
















Mode of Treatment:

The infested wooded structure was made empty & the tiny holes. The Wood Borers are controlled by injecting the insecticides in the holes with a syringe. The entire wood is also sprayed with insecticide. The holes are injected with oil base chemical; there after all wooden structure will be sprayed thoroughly with oil base chemical.
