    Bed Bugs

    Until you get bitten in your bed, it’s the closest thing to heaven on earth. That’s when you know you need to call in the exterminators to get rid of the bed bugs. Bed bugs are one of the trickiest pests to get rid of, and they can cause serious problems if they are allowed to multiply. Sofas, rugs, and cushions are common hiding places for these pests. People are a common target for the vampires because they feast on human blood. Flick specialises in eliminating bed bugs in the hotel and transportation industries, but we also treat homes and other commercial buildings. The good news is that Flick has local branches in most major New Zealand cities, including Auckland, Christchurch, Tauranga, Wellington, North Shore, and more.

    Common Bed Bug Questions

    1. What do bed bugs feed on?

      Since bed bugs only consume blood, the presence of an infestation is not indicative of slovenly sanitation practises; rather, they can be discovered even in spotless hotel rooms. They are nocturnal, typically attacking sleeping humans. Their long beak is used to puncture the skin and extract blood. Crawling away undetected, they feed for three to ten minutes.

    2. What are signs of a bed bug infestation?

      Bed bugs are a nuisance anywhere, but they are especially fond of beds, couches, and cushions in homes, hotels, offices, and public transportation. Indicators that bed bugs need to be treated are:

      • Excreta from the scent glands of the bugs, with a peculiarly unpleasant odour
      • You can tell their faeces have been there because they leave behind dark or rusty marks on the bed frames, walls, and other furniture
      • Evidence of blood on the sheets
      • Skin bites
    3. How do I prevent bed bugs?

      If you’ve been living in a hostel during your travels, it’s especially important to check your bags for any unwanted guests before bringing them inside. When on vacation, your bags should never be left unattended or open on the floor. Be sceptical of used furniture stores; check the mattresses on any used beds to make sure they haven’t picked up any hitchhikers.

    4. How do I prepare for a bed bug treatment?

      Please refrain from moving any mattresses or furniture on the day of treatment. Don’t try to tackle this problem alone; call the Flick bed bug experts instead. Wait until the technician gives the all-clear before entering the treatment area. They will tell you when it is safe to utilise the space again or vacuum it.

    5. How do I prevent bed bugs coming back?

      All bed linens should be washed in hot water (at least 60 degrees Celsius) after the treatment is finished. If you’ve been living in a hostel during your travels, it’s especially important to check your bags for any unwanted guests before bringing them inside. Be sceptical of used furniture stores; check the mattresses on any used beds to make sure they haven’t picked up any hitchhikers.

    Common Bed Bug Species

    Common Bed Bugs


    Approximately the size of an apple seed, roughly 4 – 5 mm in length. Depending on their age, they can range in colour from a pale yellow to a deep brown.


    A bed bug’s long beak can pierce human skin without causing any discomfort for up to 15 minutes while it is feeding during the night. However, redness, stinging, and swelling are common indications of an allergic reaction to the saliva. Bites that are close together and appear on the lower extremities (especially the ankles) are a warning indicator. They have the potential to bring about significant disruption and harm to the standing of hotels and other hospitality businesses.


    All bed bugs are nocturnal. They spend the day concealed in people’s beds, typically in the bedding itself, such as the mattress, headboard, and boxspring. These pests are adept at concealing themselves in cracks as narrow as a credit card and making their homes in close proximity to their food sources. But if necessary, they can crawl for far greater distances.
