Identification: Bed Bugs

Bed bugs love us for our body heat and carbon dioxide we exhale. Thanks to this, they can easily find us and bite us on exposed parts of the body. That usually takes place during sleep or late screenings in front of the TV/computer. It is worth noting that not everyone can develop an allergic reaction to a bedbug bite. And the traces can be mistaken for a mosquito or spider bite. Usually, bedbug bites are in line because they looking for the most convenient place to puncture and drink our blood.

What should you pay attention to?
  • For the bed (mattress, chest, rucksack) and its surroundings. Looking for faeces (black dots) or individuals
  • Are the bites in the line and are they itchy for several days?
  • On the frequency of bites (one every few days or more)
  • If an individual is found, it is best to take a photo of him for identification.

Identification: Cockroaches

Cockroaches, Prussians, American cockroaches are a real bane of modern times and large agglomerations. Their food is everything they find on their way, from food scraps, soap, glue, to individuals of their kind. In the initial stages, we can see them mainly at night (when their population is small), but as their numbers increase, they can also appear during the day (hundreds or even thousands). Their traces can be faeces resembling ground coffee or exuviae after they shed their shells. The gel method works well when dealing with a small and medium population. At high, ULV fogging or a combination of both is recommended.

What should you pay attention to?
  • For exuviae (so-called shells).
  • For faeces resembling ground coffee.

  • For eggs hidden in cracks.

  • A specific smell when there is a lot of insects.
  • Are individuals active during the day or only at night?
