Bed Bug Control London
Bed bugs are one of the most common indoor pests found in London homes. Getting rid of bed bugs is no easy task, which is why you better let pest control experts handle it. Our practise as a pest control company in London involves three super-effective bed bug removal methods proven over time:
Heat and Spray: we recommend this method the most. Dry steam targeted at specific areas instantly removes bed bugs regardless of their current life stage. Next, a spraying procedure exterminates all insects remaining in hard-to-reach places where the heater is incapable of being fully effective. This combined method is guaranteed to solve the pest problem with just a couple of treatment procedures.
Heat Only: a safe and efficient method used mostly in cases where the affected premises are constantly occupied, and people cannot leave the place for three hours straight.
Spray Only: this method knocks out all bed bugs for good and also serves as a prevention of their future reproduction.

What Are Bed Bugs Exactly?
Common bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are small, wingless, and blood-feeding insects. Their favourite living environment is soft, dark, and easy to hide deep into – usually bedding and sofas, but also wooden furniture, carpets, and closets.
The size and shape of bed bugs entirely depend on their stage of development. They are either drop-shaped or oval and can reach a length of around 7mm (0.3 inches), and though you can easily spot one on top of the mattress, that’s highly improbable. The reason is that the little invaders usually reside deep into the debris of the furniture to feed on your blood, generally while you’re sleeping. Well-fed bed bugs can grow up to six times their weight and increase their size by approximately 50%. An adult bug feeds once every 4-5 days, but the young ones feed more often. The body of an adult bed bug is hugely resistant to pressure when not fed.
They are hard to control and require a professional removal approach. The female bug lays up to 5 eggs a day and can lay up to 500 for her entire life. Bed bugs prefer laying their eggs on wood, upholstery, in sockets, under carpets, in cabinets, and other rough surfaces. When they lay eggs, the females release a sticky substance that holds the eggs clinging to the surface.
Bed bugs prefer dark places, slits and crevices, bed frames, and any other spot that is difficult to reach. They prefer to stay close to the bed they have targeted for invasion. Since their senses are highly developed, they can feel when their prey is sleeping, which is their feeding time. Bed bugs are hardly noticeable in cases when the infestation is moderate, and you could fail to realise your home has been infested.

Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
Bed bugs are natural hitchhikers. They travel by sticking on to your clothing, bags, and luggage on the go and then getting comfortable in their new home – wherever you take them.
The most common places you can catch bed bugs from include, for example:
● Hotels, hostels, and other tourist accommodations;
● Public transportation – trains, buses, aeroplanes, etc.
● Public spaces, dining facilities, and multi-tenant buildings;
● A friend’s or a relative’s house;
● Or literally any place else.
You have little to no control over the hygiene of places you don’t maintain by yourself, so bed bugs can come from literally everywhere.
Does Anything Attract Them Specifically?
It’s a myth that bed bugs are attracted to dirty places. The only things that genuinely attract them are warmth, blood, and carbon dioxide. Having bed bugs doesn’t mean that your place has a low hygiene standard. Even if you maintain your home to the highest hygiene standards it won’t stop bed bugs from forming their colony once they arrive.
Is There Any Prevention Against Bed Bugs?
Here are a few things to consider if you want to keep your home safe from bed bugs:
● Always take away and wash your clothing when you enter your home, especially if you’ve been travelling;
● Perform regular vacuuming to eliminate any unwanted hitchhikers;
● Use protective bed covering, including a high-quality mattress protector;
● When sleeping outside your home, always check the bedding for signs of bed bugs;
● When travelling, always keep your textiles in vacuum-sealed bags;
● Cut the clutter in your home to reduce the potential hiding places for bed bugs;
● Avoid buying second-hand furniture, or if you do – always do an out-and-out examination;
● Always take second-hand clothing and accessories to the dry cleaner before you bring it home;
● Proceed with caution when using shared laundry facilities – always take your textiles back and forth in sealed bags and aim for minimum contact.
No matter how strictly you follow all of the above, bed bug prevention is never 100% guaranteed. Spotting the very first signs of an infestation may happen to be the difference between a minor issue and a total catastrophe.
What Are the Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation in Your Home?
You can easily overlook the first signs of a bed bug infestation as accidental. Still, don’t hesitate to call pest control experts for inspection if you notice any of the following signs:
● If you find the parasites or their eggs, there is no doubt that you’re dealing with an infestation. The eggs resemble tiny rice grains and can be found on the mattress, all over the bed frame, headboard, chairs, cabinets, and any other piece of furniture made of wood or textiles.
● Skin irritation, bites, and rashes. At first, you may mistake it for an allergic reaction or an unforeseen sensitivity towards an unknown irritant. Bed bug bites usually appear on areas of your skin that are exposed during the night: your arms, your neck, your face, etc. They look like little red spots grouped in lines or clusters. The itchiness can vary from minor to severe, depending on how your skin reacts.
● A repelling odour. Having your bed smell bad, even if it’s ideally taken care of, is a red flag. In time, bed bug-infested areas get full of tiny blood drops, rotting faeces, and skin particles. And yes – that’s not the best fragrance in the world.
● Dark spots or blood stains on your bedding and furniture. Don’t imagine a horror crime scene here: these can be really small and even mistaken for some other kind of staining. Seeing these signs can indicate that the infestation is already spreading fast, so a professional shall arrive as soon as possible.
● If you notice small black dots on your bedding, mattress, bed frame, or other surfaces that are near the parasite’s hiding place. The dots are bed bug faeces, which are extremely difficult to clean. Bed bugs leave these behind when they are well-fed and have significantly increased their size. Thus they are unable to jump back into their hiding spots.
When is the Right Time to Call a Professional Pest Control company?
The short answer to this is – immediately after spotting the first signs of an infestation. Even if you’re not sure it’s bed bugs – don’t postpone the call and on-site visit by a licensed bed bug removal specialist.
The timely reaction is crucial for bed bug control. The sooner we arrive, the easier and more successful our endeavours will be.

What clients are saying
Very professional guys, very responsive. I sent my inquiry at night and they responded 5 minutes later, which was very surprising but in a good way. I was worried about that I have bed bugs, because I was getting bitten, and these guys found that wasn’t the case. They found fleas on my curtains and for 3 weeks no new bites so far, so I’m very happy with the service. I would recommend them to anyone for sure
After suffering with bed bugs last Oct living in a flat …my anxiety is terrible now and so when I see my son had some bits my head was all over the place I rang toxic respond and they immediately sent some one out & they was professional and so so thorough we had no bugs and they reassured me enough I may get some sleep after a week of none! 🙂 They understood it’s not just bugs it’s people’s mental health & I feel I would definitely recommend and use again x thanks guys
Toxic Respond was so responsive and I’m so happy with their services. I used their services twice and I will use them again if I need pest control in the future. They are so efficient, sending reports with photos and videos, so I knew what they did in my house and what I paid for. I would recommend this company to everyone
Toxic respond have been great from the get go… They saw a post of mine on Facebook showing bites on my 2yr old son and that we didn’t know for 100% what they were from or where to find the bugs.
They offered us a free inspection which found fleas in and around the home left by previous tenants.
After sorting us with a great price they came out two days later and worked there magic around the whole of our house. Two weeks later and so far so good no more bite on our lil man and no fleas seen either. Very happy and would recommend them highly.
Keep up the good work guys.

I’m a single mum of two young children and was at the end of my tether with these brown carpet beetles after trying everything I contacted this company after finding them on google and they literally came straight away to give a free inspection. Whilst they were here they offered to do the job there and then which has made me so happy.
