Birmingham, United Kingdom (18 February, 2011) – Beds Direct: 247, a leading online retailer of high quality beds, mattresses, futons and accessories, comment on the newfound prevalence of ‘bed bugs’ across developed countries such as the UK.
Bed bugs are parasitic insects which survive primarily by feeding on warm-blooded animals, such as humans, during the night-time. Potentially due to an increase in world travel, there is a greater amount of bed bugs now in the UK, which is causing heightened irritation and worry amongst those living in Britain.
Clive Boase, the author of the report which highlighted these findings and manager at the Pest Management Consultancy in Haverhill, commented: “Since the mid-1990s, numbers of reported infestations have almost doubled annually. In parts of London, bed bug infestations have risen tenfold since 1996, and the National Pest Management Association has reported a 500 percent increase in bed bug numbers in the last few years across the Unites States.”
Beds Direct: 247 are currently providing two products designed specifically to combat the prevalence of bed bugs; the Bug Shield Mattress and the Protect A Bed Bed Bug Proof Protector. The mattress effectively eliminates 100% of all bed bugs in a mattress without causing skin irritation for the user, whilst the bed bug proof protector uses an AllerZip seal to give total protection against dust mites, allergens and bed bugs: certified by an Entomology Laboratory to be completely bed bug proof.
“The old saying “sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite” is undoubtedly becoming relevant once again,” commented Oliver McCaron of Beds Direct: 247. “At Beds Direct: 247, we consider ourselves at the forefront of introducing new and dynamic products into the market concerning sleep and health. This new bed bug problem is no different, and we have acting swiftly to bring into the market two products that are scientifically proven to combat bed bug infestations in your mattress. We hope that these innovative solutions can assist households across the UK in combating the parasitic bugs to achieve a bed bug-free home.”
