Bedbug infestations are on the rise so we are going to tell you how to get rid of bedbugs properly. Numbers have increased dramatically over the last year with many sources suggesting that the rise in bedbug cases began in Paris, where the city declared the problem was getting out of control in the run-up to the 2024 Olympics in the city.

The problem has now spread over the channel to the UK. Bedbugs attach themselves to bedding and clothing and in this way can travel on clothes packed in suitcases.
