Ulster's bedbug infestation

Increases in foreign travel and hotter weather have contributed to a huge rise in cases of Bedbugs throughout Northern Ireland.

The blood sucking bugs can grow to 5mm long and can hibernate for 1 year between a "feast".

In warm weather the numbers of bugs can multiply at a huge rate, living in mattresses, bed frames, headboards and even electrical fittings.
