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.
Pests that commonly affect commercial properties
Feral Pigeons: What are they and what do they do?
Feral pigeons are considered to be a big pest problem due to their ability to deface buildings, increasing the cost of maintenance. Weighing at approximately 9-13 ounces, feral pigeons generally have pale grey wings with a dark tip. Usually feeding on grain, seeds and scraps, these birds adopt ledges on buildings and other structures in our towns or cities.
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:
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.
Although there are many differences in the two cockroaches that are treated by our controllers, infestation from them can be unsightly and should be treated efficiently by a pest control professional to ensure they do not return.
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.
Moths: How can I prevent them infesting in my home?
There are many easy and effective solutions to prevent moths from infesting your wardrobe, including:
Cleaning out your wardrobe regularly – This includes both your wardrobe itself and your clothing. Firstly, it is recommended that all clothing is removed from your wardrobe, throwing out clothing that is old and unworn.
Using scents in your home – There are a few scents in particular in which can deter moths from infestation. Lavender has been found to be a popular and effective budget friendly method of deterring moth infestation. Similar to moth balls, lavender bags can be easily stored with clothing in your wardrobe, with the natural aromas acting as a repellent to moths.
Storing garments properly – As the seasons change and we approach the warmer months, there may be clothing less appropriate for the warmer weather that could be stored away.
