The most frequent pest problems we deal with are rodent-related. Especially common during the winter, rodents can cause problems all year round, whether it’s damaging your property or spreading disease.
Rodent problems may be difficult to eradicate if an infestation is large, but your pest technician will provide professional advice on which solution suits your requirements, ranging from rodenticide to humane trapping. Problematic rodents include:
While an individual wasp is a nuisance, a swarm or a nest of them can be formidable pests. Furthermore, a wasp’s sting may cause an allergic reaction in some people, posing a serious health and safety risk.
Wasps are usually active between June and October and a single treatment outside of your property is usually enough to deal with an infestation. For further details, consult your pest technician.
Serving domestic and commercial clients, we also handle bird problems, most often related to pigeons. Aside from pigeon guano and droppings being unsightly, it can also carry disease, especially when dried out and turned to dust.
Furthermore, we deal with birds that have become trapped inside your property and cause problems such as setting off alarms and spoiling products in commercial properties. Even after birds’ nests have been vacated, they may also contain other pests, which is why you need to consult our team and arrange a professional survey.
There are many types of flea, but the most common are cat fleas. These pests can be brought into your home after contact with another infested animal or property. Fleas are particularly difficult to eradicate, which is why our pet technician may need to visit more than once to provide a complete solution.
Particularly common in residences with multiple occupancies, this extremely irritating pest can easily be transferred on clothing and bedsheets, which is what makes them notoriously difficult to treat once they are established. It’s important to consult a professional pest technician in case of a bedbug infestation, as these insects are immune to most over-the-counter products.
Usually found in old, untreated furniture, woodworms are known for weakening the structure of wood as they infest it, which is particularly worrying if they spread to the structural beams in your property. Our experienced pest technicians will provide a spray treatment of all infected wood and any other wood in the surrounding areas.
More common in rural areas, moles excavate extensive tunnel systems that make the ground above unstable. While this mostly just causes unsightly mounds of earth, it can also prove dangerous if an animal or human puts their weight on unstable ground and causes the tunnel to collapse. To help you avoid injury, we provide humane trapping services for moles.
As per the Pest Act of 1954, you are responsible for controlling rabbit populations on your property. If “your” rabbits damage a neighbour’s trees and plants by undermining the ground, you may be held liable. Providing professional advice and services, our pest technicians offer a range of legal treatments including trapping and shooting.
There are several pest species of moth. They are most destructive in their larval stage of growth, when they feed on textiles such as carpets, rugs, and clothes. A single treatment with a residual insecticide will usually solve this problem, but please get in touch with our pest technicians with any further enquiries.
It is important to identify which type of pest beetle you have so that we can administer the specific treatment required. Our pest technicians will identify the offending type with our initial survey and recommend one of our various treatments, whether it’s a targeted insecticide spray or a broad-spectrum fogging.
These small wingless insects usually indicate the presence of damp in your property. Getting their name from their appearance and the way they move, silverfish tend to shy away from light and feed mainly off starch base material, including cardboard. Our pest technicians use spray or fogging treatments to address silverfish infestations.
Flies and Maggots
There are many types of pest fly, ranging from disease carriers to general nuisances. Furthermore, maggots may cause a more persistent problem by turning into flies, laying eggs, and establishing a cycle. For this reason, we usually recommend a speedy resolution and our pest technicians are on hand to provide professional advice and services.
Capable of hiding almost anywhere, cockroach infestations are extremely difficult to eradicate. All three species of cockroach in the UK have a reputation for spreading disease, which is why it’s important to have our professional pest technicians get rid of them for you.
Seeing as how they can hide anywhere, a programmed treatment is required to deal with them, whether it’s a trap or some insecticide sprays and gels. Your pest technician will also provide recommendations on improving hygiene practices to prevent infestations.
With so many known varieties of ant, the difficulty of eradicating infestations may vary. For instance, pharaoh ants are especially difficult to get rid of, but ant infestations can require many treatments either way, especially in blocks of flats and other multiple-occupancy properties. Call on an experienced pest technician to discuss your next steps.
