Pest control Reading specialists including Pest Control Berkshire appreciate that discovering a bed bug infestation constitutes an emergency, especially in a professional environment. For overnight accommodation businesses, the presence of bed bugs demands swift action and an effective end to the issue with the highest levels of discretion.

One myth that can be discredited immediately is that bed bug infestations are a direct result of lacklustre cleaning regimes. Bed bugs can travel on clothing or luggage for thousands of miles and professional accommodation providers are prone to them because of the customer traffic.

For example, a tourist may have flown in to the UK from another continent and delivered the infestation without realising or maybe your guest spent the previous night in a different UK hotel that unfortunately had an unrecognised bed bug infestation.

Bed bugs are magnificent travellers so there’s no reason to admonish cleaning staff or feel desperate about the situation. However, decluttering a space removes the number of hiding places for the pests.

The NHS describes bed bug infestations as follows:

“Bed bugs are small blood-sucking insects that live in cracks and crevices in and around beds. They crawl out at night and bite exposed skin to feed on blood.”

Whilst bed bug infestations do not carry diseases, a person can suffer an allergic reaction to bites, in which case medical attention is required.

No guest expects or orders a bed bug wake up call.


  • Bed bugs are brown-red or yellowish and approximately 6mm long.
  • They produce a musty smell.
  • White eggs lie in crevices.
  • Brown dots could be a sign of their excretions.
  • Discarded skin, which they secrete as they grow.
  • Human blood stains are often produced when the bed bug bites.
  • Bite marks, red inflamed areas which often itch.

Treatment often requires removal of people and furniture pre-visit and work is carried out on a room by room basis, usually with 2 or 3 visits.
