Pests that commonly affect domestic properties
Cluster flies: What are they and how can they be a pest?
Cluster flies are flies that inhabit properties during the summer months in order for them to hibernate, in turn ‘clustering’ together in a large volumes and consequently becoming an irritant in the household. Cluster flies pose no threat to humans, as unlike other flies, they do not lay their eggs on human food. Cluster flies have also been known to emit a sweet, sickly odour which can be unpleasant in the home. It has been found however, that when they do reach hibernation and head for your home, if left untreated, they will tend to return to that property year after year.
Bees & Wasps: How can I tell if I have a problem with bees or wasps?
There are many signs that could suggest there are bees or wasps lurking in your home, from checking your attic or loft for a wasps nest, to the dark and dry corners of your property, as wasps prefer to build their nests here, with bees able to build their nests anywhere. Alternatively, if you notice structural damage to your property such as holes in the walls and damaged mortar between bricks, it is likely that you are suffering from a masonry bee infestation. These bees drill into the brick work to create cavities in order to build their nests.
What are the different types of bees?
There are three different species of bees that may cause customers to contact us:
Pests that commonly affect commercial properties
Rodents: What is the difference between rats & mice?
Rats are much larger in size than mice, averaging at 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, over double the weight of an adult mouse.
Cockroaches: What types of cockroaches are there and what do they do?
There are two types of cockroaches treated by our controllers:
How can cockroaches be treated?
Cockroach infestations are treated with a water-based insecticide. The treatment is sprayed around the infected area by the controller, and a sticky paste may be applied into drinking straws around the area. Cockroaches ingest the bait and consequently, begin to die. However, the bodies should not be removed from the site immediately, as the remaining cockroaches will feed on the dead bodies and ingest the poison as a result. After this, an insect detector device will then be used to determine whether any infestation remains. If no activity is recorded by the detector, any remaining dead bodies can then be removed and disposed of.
