TDC Pest Control Questions & Answers
Cluster flies: What are they and what do they do?
Unlike other flies, cluster flies do not lay eggs on human food, therefore pose no threat to humans. During the summer months however, these flies inhabit properties in order for them to hibernate, and in turn ‘cluster’ together, consequently becoming an irritant in the household.
How do I tell if I have a Cluster Fly problem?
Cluster flies are slightly smaller in size than the common blue-bottle fly, and can appear to be disorientated when attempting to fly. The strongest indication of a cluster fly infestation would be these flies forming a ball-like cluster together, emitting a sweet, sickly odour.
How can cluster flies be treated?
The characteristic ball of flies has to be established for at least 7 days until it can be treated; only after this amount of time will the insecticide affect the entire fly population. The pest controller will ‘fog’ an insecticide upon the cluster of flies. Once all of the flies have been destroyed, the bodies can easily be removed and disposed of by using a vacuum cleaner.
Bees & Wasps: What species of bees are subject to pest control treatment?
There are three different species of bees that can cause customers to contact us:
How can I confirm if I have a bee or wasp problem?
There are a few signs that can suggest you may have a bee or wasp infestation in your home, from checking your attic or loft for a wasps nest (as they prefer dark and dry environments), to noticing if there is any structural damage to your property such as holes in the walls or damaged mortar between bricks. The latter can suggest that you may have a problem with masonry bees, as these pests drill into brick work to create cavities for their nests to be built.
Bed Bugs: What are they and how can they be a pest?
Bed bugs are very small reddish-brown parasites that feed on human blood. These pests prefer to live around the seams of mattresses and headboards, although can also be found in small, dark spaces such as behind furniture, a chest of drawers or even a crack in the wall. Although bed bugs are only around 5mm in length, these insects can leave irritating bites all over the body, in which can worsen when scratched.
3 Signs you may have a bed bug infestation
1.Numerous bites – If you are regularly finding yourself covered with small, red marks and they swell or itch when scratched, it is likely you have a bed bug infestation, as these pests feed on sedentary or sleeping humans.
2.Checking your mattress and headboard – It is important to check your mattress, headboard and bed frames thoroughly for signs of both the small, black bugs and their eggs. Bed bugs often leave behind small, black traces in which can be identified as faeces, or sometimes rust-coloured stains are left on mattress tags and seams.
3.Eggs & exoskeletons – Bed bugs have an outer shell in which they often shed and leave behind. Therefore, if you see shell-like remains around your home, particularly underneath cushions or on your mattress, this is a strong indication you are experiencing a bed bug infestation that should be treated by a professional controller. There may also be signs of eggs as female bed bugs tend to lay these in small crevices. The eggs are white and oval shaped, however can be difficult to spot when you consider that an average bed bug measures at only 5 millimetres in length.
