The "bed bug", bed flea or "Cimex Lectularius", is a Heteroptera insect of the Cimicidae family. In adulthood, it measures the size of an apple seed. It is an exclusively nocturnal insect that lives in the dark, in cracks, box springs and mattresses. It feeds by biting and sucking the blood of its host without the host noticing it (in some cases), then returns to hide. It can survive without feeding for one to two years, which makes it very difficult to control.
The bites are usually located on exposed parts of the body, they occur at night and look like mosquito bites. They are often grouped together in groups of three or four in the same area. They cause severe itching and sometimes allergic reactions. These bites also cause the victim to have profound sleeping problems, a feeling of vulnerability and helplessness.
Be careful, commercial insecticides can disperse and spread the infestation and make it worse. To put an end to the presence of bedbugs, it is necessary to call a professional. Indeed, bedbugs have a reproductive cycle, a particular way of life that requires specific knowledge and material to treat in an effective way. Keeping in touch with innovations and global studies on bedbugs, our treatment is based on research and advice from international experts. Whether it is canine or human detection, the preparation of your home, the freezing of your furniture, mattresses and sofas, chemical treatment or heat treatment, we offer you adapted and guaranteed support to treat bedbugs in Geneva and throughout French-speaking Switzerland. Your collaboration is essential and will be required to guarantee an effective result.
The "cockroach" is a Blattodea insect. There are at least six thousand different species distributed across the world. However, only four are identified as pests. We find here in Switzerland, the German cockroach, the oriental cockroach, the American cockroach, the striped cockroach also called furniture cockroach.
Cockroach droppings contaminate our food and our environment and can transmit different forms of salmonella and staphylococcus. Often the cause of allergy, especially in cases of infestations, skin reactions or breathing problems may appear and require medical attention.
To disinsect an infested place effectively, there are several methods. A precise identification of the species is necessary. Whether the problem is located in a restaurant, a cellar, an apartment, or in an entire building, we offer you an adapted, effective and guaranteed treatment.
The "ant" is a Formicidal insect. So far, twelve thousand species have been recorded. In Switzerland, we distinguish two types of ants, the common one which is endemic and the invasive one.
Ants play a vital role in our ecosystem, however they can invade your home because they are in search of food or other resources. Invasive ants, such as pharaoh ants or ghost ants are more severe sources of nuisance and must be fought.
The reason for
their presence and the precise identification of the species is essential to
the treatment plan. Once this is done, we can offer you an effective
intervention and treatment.
The "pine processionary caterpillars" are Lepidoptera insects. They build their nests in pines, develop during winter, then, in spring, descend from the tree in procession and turn into butterflies.
It is very important to avoid any contact with these nests.We offer the removal of the nests and the installation of straps preventing the caterpillars from reaching the ground.
The "silverfish", or "lepismus", is an "wingless" insect which measures between 10 and 15mm. It has silvery scales which give it a metallic appearance. It moves very quickly and sneaks around. It is a primitive insect from another time.
The silverfish is not a dangerous insect, however its presence in our homes can be unpleasant. It is present in both old and new buildings and thrives in humidity and heat.
insects need hot, wet and dark hiding places in order to develop, it is
necessary to lower the humidity level of the infested premises and to block the
cracks which allow them to hide. If that is not enough, do not hesitate to
contact us, we will offer you several solutions to get rid of silverfish.
The "wall spider" is a generally small specimen that develops on stone and in this case on the facades of buildings. It often lives near rivers and lakes because their preys, insects, are present there in large numbers. Facades that are bright and lit at night are more often affected because they attract insects.
Nuisance is characterized by the presence of numerous small gray or black cobwebs (because they retain atmospheric pollution) which dirty the facades of buildings.
The only solution to remedy this problem is to clean the facade with dry or high pressure. Once the cobwebs have been removed, a specific repellent should be applied to protect the facade as long as possible.
