Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) contain 28 different types of pathogens for humans. We can also find other species that parasitize other mammals and birds.
Changes in personal hygiene and the use of powerful insecticides did end the scourge in developed countries.
Today, bed bugs are a major emerging pest of our Western world, affecting all types of facilities: hotels, residences, hostels, Metro, private homes, etc..
Their capacity to develop immunological mechanisms to insecticides and their ability to reproduce is amazing.
The causes which have led to this explosion lie in the resistance of new strains of bugs to traditional insecticides and the increase of the amount of people travelling where there are still reservoirs of this pest (especially for vacation or business) and trade between countries.
In addition, bed bugs have no predators any more in the urban ecosystem, and chemical means that are available today are less effective, partly because of the immunological mechanisms developed by this species.
Radan Desintec’s control method:
Diagnostic Status: We thoroughly determine where their shelters locate: small cracks, outlets, between the joints of the buttons on a bed, inside its metal or wood, behind a wallpaper. The key to success certainly depends 90% of this first phase. Once passed, we choose the most appropriate method according to safety, environmental friendliness and efficiency.
In detail, methods may be: chemical, thermical shock or cryonics.
