Do the bed bugs bite?

Pest controller Simon Murphy reacts to research from London that suggests not making your bed might keep the dustmites and bedbugs away.

Do you make your bed first thing in the morning or do you leave it undressed and messy?

Research from the Kingston University London has found that there is actually a great reason to not make your bed in the mornings. A group of specialists are advising people to leave their beds unmade to banish house dust mites which cause asthma and other allergies.

The scientists have discovered the mites cannot survive in the warm, dry conditions found in an unmade bed.

Simon Murphy from Principal Environmental Pest Control joined Ciara Kelly on High Noon to discuss the creepy crawlies in your bed, and also how to keep them away.
