Pests that commonly affect domestic properties
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, 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 infesting your wardrobe . 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.
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.
Ants: What types of ants are there and what do they do?
There are two specific species of ants that are subject to pest control in the UK, these include:
Garden Ants also known as the common black ant, are black or red in colour and measure at approximately 7mm in length. These ants rarely cause damage to plants, however they do feed on sugary foods and can be a nuisance when a colony invade your home looking for food.
Pharaoh Ants are distinctively red in colour and much smaller in size than garden ants, averaging at around 3.5mm in length. Pharaoh ants live in colonies that can vary in size, although colonies are made up of several queens, in which the worker ants bring food back to the nest to feed the queen and larvae. They prefer to nest in hidden and well-protected areas, eating all types of food but especially sweets.
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: How can they be treated by a pest controller?
Cockroach infestations are treated by one of our fully certified pest controllers by using a water-based insecticide. The treatment is sprayed around the infected area, and a sticky paste may be applied into drinking straws. 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.
