TDC Pest Control Tips & Information
Commonly known for their continuously growing incisors, there are three different types of rodents that are treated by TDC Pest Control, including mice, rats and squirrels.
The differences between rats and mice
Mice are much smaller than rats, as rats are approximately 9-11 inches long, with their thick tail shorter than their bodies, as opposed to mice which have thinner tails the same length (if not longer) than the size of their body. Rats also weigh a lot more than mice due to the difference in size; at around just 6 weeks, a rat is already around 100 grams, that’s over double the weight of an adult mouse.
Do you suspect you may have a rodent infestation present in your property?
Indications of a rodent infestation can include:
TDC Pest Fact: A Freedom of Information investigation found that hospitals in England called out pest control experts no fewer than 7,026 times in 2013/14.
What are carpet beetles and what do they do?
Carpet beetles are a major pest of textiles. The larvae and the beetle live within the felt of a carpet, often eating back to the underlay. Carpet beetles are often transferred by birds, on occasion being dropped through a chimney and infesting the floor below. Adult carpet beetles have small, round bodies that are approximately 2-4mm in size with a brown, mottled colour. Adults generally seek egg-laying sites and are often seen in spring. The larvae (also known as the Woolly Bear), is 4-5mm in length with a striped hair-covered body, often rolling up into a ball when disturbed. As they grow, they malt, leaving old cast-off skins behind.
How do I know if I have a carpet beetle problem?
There are a few signs to confirm that you may have a carpet beetle problem, including:
How can carpet beetles be treated?
Carpet beetles can be treated efficiently by a pest control engineer, in which will use a water-based insecticide to fog throughout the infected area. The carpet should ideally be removed and disposed of, this is because by keeping infested garments, the risk of being unable to stop the infestation is increased. Only after this should the floor be treated. Once this has settled a new carpet can be laid.
