SUMI PRIDE – A Safe Novel Treatment for Bed bug Control
Bedbugs – The Problem
Bed Bugs are insects that feed on multiple hosts including humans, dogs, cats and other animals. At night these tiny creatures sneak out of their hiding place to feast on you without your permission! They know where you are because of the carbon dioxide and heat of the bodies and What’s scarier is that the bed bugs administer an anaesthetic, so you don’t wake up.
A bed bug can suck blood, three times its weight in a single meal. Gradually they create a big family that lives happily in the bed crevices and mattresses.
But …..are you happy?
Bed bug bites can cause skin rashes, blisters, allergies, other infections and anaemia.
How to control Bedbugs?
Bed bugs can be controlled by applying IPM strategies i.e communicate with or educate people, physical or mechanical means and through chemicals, but a more effective and long-lasting approach is the use of insecticides. However, their resistance to many insecticides has increased significantly over a period of time.

How do you check for bed bugs?
Knowing where to look and what to look for is the most important exercise you must do before you start the treatment.
Mated female bed bugs lay 2 to 5 eggs a day & about 200 to 500 egg in their lifetime. Eggs hatch in 6 to 10 days, to the stage, called a nymph. From the egg stage to the adult the insect changes dramatically, adults are always darker reddish-brown. The complete lifecycle of the bed bug takes about 6 to 7 weeks under optimal conditions.
Where to check for Bed bugs?
The first place to look for is the seams of pillowcases, look for the yellowish skin they shed, droppings, and red smears on your bed sheet, clothes or pillowcases.
The mattress itself is a notorious hiding place for bed bugs. They usually nest along the seams and sides of mattresses.
Also look for them in bed storage areas, as bed bugs find enough place to hide here. Don’t forget to examine the bed frames and everything on the floor, including the side tables.
“Bed bugs would hide on – or in wood, fabric, metal, anything which is close to their food source, and that is – YOU”.
Also check for the bed bugs on the couch, easy chairs and desk areas, wherever you spend significant time lying or sitting idle.
