If you suspect you may have an infestation in your domestic or commercial property, we can help. We have included some helpful tips and information about just some of the pests our expert controllers treat, and how to recognise the signs of an infestation.
Moles: what are they and what do they do?
Moles measure at approximately 12-15cm in length with a dark, brown-black fur covered body. These mammals are virtually blind and live underground, manoeuvring through and creating a network of tunnels. Because of this, they are known to leave mounds of earth on the surface, although are mainly considered as a pest if they cause damage to the property itself.
Identifying a mole problem
One way to confirm that you have a mole that should be treated by a fully trained pest controller includes checking your soil for the presence of other pests, such as an oversupply of bugs. This is because moles generally make themselves at home in a garden to the extent of plants being an easy access for other pests. Another way to distinguish if you have a mole problem can include checking your soil and lawn for their tunnels as they should appear as raised swellings; moles prefer moist soil and are generally most active in the spring or autumn.
Silver fish: what are they and what do they do?
Silver fish are a teardrop shaped insect that varies in colour, from white to brown-grey with some blue and silver tones. They have three very prominent ‘tails’ and two long antennas on their head. These household pests are known for their ability to survive in almost any environment, due to their quick movement and preference of dark, damp atmospheres. These pests can be a year round problem that feed on carbohydrates, linen, book bindings and dead insects. Once they find a satisfactory amount of food they will remain in the same area.
Identifying a silver fish problem
Some of the signs that you may have a silver fish infestation can including finding exoskeletons, as silver fish malt throughout their lives. Noticing irregular shaped holes in any fabrics or wallpaper is a strong indication, as these pests like to eat the glue.
Treating a silver fish infestation
A silver fish infestation can be treated by a pest controller from use of a water-based insecticide. The controller will carefully examine the entire premises and determine the level of infestation to ensure there isn’t any other pests present. Silver fish can contaminate an entire property, therefore treatment may have to be carried out across the premises.
Fleas: what are they and what do they do?
Fleas are small, parasitic insects that feed on blood. Measuring at just 1-3mm in length with a reddish brown to black appearance, fleas have six long legs enabling them to jump great distances. These pests can leave bites on humans and other mammals, including household pets.
TDC Pest Fact: Fleas can remain frozen for a year and still survive.
