TDC Pest Control Q&A
Bees and Wasps
What species of bees are subject to pest control treatment?
There are three different species of bees that may cause customers to contact us:
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.
Why is it necessary to wait at least 24 hours after discovering a bees or wasps nest to have it treated?
It is normally suggested that the customer should wait at least 24 hours before contacting a pest controller about a bees or wasps nest as generally they tend to move on during this time period. If they are still prominent after 24 hours, then it is suggested that the customer contacts the British Bee Keeping Association first, and then a pest controller after this.
TDC Pest Fact: All insects have a hard exoskeleton, six jointed legs, two antennae, compound eyes and a body divided into 3 main body sections - a head, thorax and abdomen.
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 fully certified pest controller, 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.
