Manchester’s bed bugs: The facts

In Manchester and other large UK cities, there has been an annual growth in the number of infestations by bed bugs. These small blood-sucking insects are not always easy to detect and eliminate, and they have been known to hitch a lift in luggage, clothing and furniture, so even the cleanest home or hotel may suddenly find itself infested by these unwelcome visitors.

Bed bugs are not easy to see, because they are small and prefer to come out at night when many of Manchester’s residents are sleeping. They are flat and come in varying shades of brown, with adults growing to just over half a centimetre in length and a little less than that in width. The female lays up to five hundred tiny white eggs during her lifetime, and it takes only a couple of months for new-born bed bugs to reach fertile adulthood.

Bed bugs feed off the blood of people and their pets. Emerging from their hiding places at night, they can cover a lot of ground for such small creatures. You can recognise a bed bug bite as they usually leave a series of bites in a line, as opposed to a flea, which will bite more randomly. Some people are very sensitive to these bites and may experience swelling and itchiness, while others may not react at all. Another indication of bed bugs in the vicinity may be dark blood spots on bedding or mattresses – these spots are bed bug faeces, containing the blood of their prey.

Although they are known as ‘bed bugs’, these insects do not just live inside mattresses, headboards and bedframes, and can also be found in other furniture items, as well as in carpets and gaps in skirting boards. They do not just remain in the bedroom, and can quickly infest a property. In Manchester’s hotels and apartment blocks, they may spread out into the corridor and neighbouring rooms in little time at all, resulting in a huge infestation throughout the entire building.

How to deal with bed bugs

Due to their size and the many nooks and crannies they might hide themselves away in, it can be a challenge to identify bed bugs’ hiding places and then properly deal with them. A thorough vacuum of all rooms and furniture may help to get rid of bed bugs and eggs they have laid, although it is essential that the vacuum bag is thrown out immediately afterwards to prevent them escaping into your property once more.

Also, however hard you might try, even with repeated vacuuming over a period of time, you may find that you still overlook or cannot reach certain locations where bedbugs are hiding away. One somewhat extreme, but sometimes effective measure, is to varnish all wood surfaces including floorboards, furniture and doors, although this still cannot be guaranteed 100% effective due to the many places where bed bugs might be hiding.

Shop-bought DIY bed bug sprays and powders may eliminate some bed bugs but are, again, unlikely to eliminate all of them, as these insecticides are usually only effective against bed bugs but not their eggs. Furthermore, bed bugs can quickly develop an immunity to certain chemicals, which means that the chemicals may be more dangerous to people than the bed bugs themselves!
