Identifying a cockroach infestation in your home
There are a few ways to tell if you have cockroaches lurking in your home, noting that the German cockroach has a body with a winged base and the oriental does not, it is important to understand that they can leave damage and infection in a household, with many German cockroaches often spotted in a warmer and more moist environment such as a bathroom, whereas the Oriental cockroach can often be seen moving throughout the beams and rafters in the household.
TDC Pest Fact: Cockroaches spend 75% of their time resting.
How can cockroaches be treated?
Cockroach infestations are treated with a water-based insecticide. The treatment is sprayed around the infected area by the engineer, 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.

What are cluster flies and what do they do?
Cluster flies are flies that inhabit properties during the summer months in order for them to hibernate, in turn ‘clustering’ together in a large volume 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 although these flies are of no consequence during many parts of the year when they live outside, when they do reach hibernation and head for your home, if left untreated, they will tend to return to that property year after year.
How to prevent cluster flies from infesting your home
There are not many effective methods in regards to preventing cluster flies from entering your home itself. Controlling flies inside a loft or attic however can be relatively simple, by using an insecticide or vacuuming may deter the pests, but to ensure further infestation does not occur the following year, it is suggested that a professional pest control engineer is called to assess the environment and prevent the pests from returning in the future.

How can I tell if I have a mice or rat problem?
Rats thrive on familiarity, and once they have moved into your home it won’t be long until their friends turn up uninvited to join them. The thought of rats or mice living in your kitchen for instance can be unbearable. There are a few ways to tell if you have mice or rats lurking in your home, including:
