Bees & Wasps

How can I tell if I have a problem with bees or wasps?
There are a few ways to tell if you have 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.
Moles are burrowing mammals measuring 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. Consequently, 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.
How to identify a mole problem
One of the most effective ways of identifying 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. Additionally, it is important to regularly check 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.
There are two ways of treating moles, including:
Gas – Toxic gas is released from a canister into the mole hill, in which the mole will inhale. This method is not always the most effective as the gas may escape through the earth or even evaporate before it is inhaled.
Guillotine trap – A tube-like device is inserted into the mole hill and is released as the mole passes through, resulting in the mole being asphyxiated or decapitated.
If I have more than one mole hill does this mean I have more than one mole?
Not necessarily, the number of mole hills does not reflect on the number of moles. It is likely that if you have a small garden, there is only one mole causing the damage.
TDC Pest Fact: A cockroach can live up to one week without its head.
There are two species of cockroach treated by TDC Pest Control:
German cockroaches are light brown in colour with a wing base, and are approximately 1.5cm in length. These types of cockroaches are usually found in warm, moist environments, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
Oriental cockroaches are smooth with a black coloured body. They have no wing base and measure at approximately 2.5cm. Oriental cockroaches are often found in terraced housing, infecting entire blocks of properties as the move throughout the beams and rafters.
