London

A disturbing case of bed bugs

A housing association called Cleankill Pest Control to a small block of seven flats in North London that was suffering a major infestation of bed bugs. The property has a long history of bed bug problems, and the majority of the flats are infested. Part of the problem is some residents are not bothered at all by living with bed bugs. This creates a problem for those residents who complain as soon as they see a bed bug.

The sudden increase in temperature and sunshine has meant an explosion of blossom and noticeable increase in bees going about their work.

There has also been a worrying surge in calls to pest controllers from people confusing bees with wasps and asking for treatment.
