Ants

The most common ants you may encounter as pests are garden ants. Garden ants generally nest outdoors in sandy soils but travel widely in search of food. They become a pest when they enter homes in search of food and are particularly attracted to sweet substances. Garden ants become a nuisance because of their foraging habits, as they walk across unpleasant and dirty areas during their search for food.

How do we control ants?
Garden ants are controlled using residual insecticides namely sprays and dusts. In domestic properties we would normally treat the kitchen and garden areas where the ants may have originally entered the premises.
Our treatment programme usually consists of two visits. Our technician will carry out a thorough inspection of your premises prior to any treatment and assess the level and extent of the infestation. A residual insecticide is applied to all high risk areas.
Our second visit is usually carried out 7-10 days after the initial treatment. Once the treatments have been carried out, our technician will fill out an inspection report and discuss ways of preventing a re-infestation.
Our ant treatment is guaranteed until the end of the calendar year in which we carry out the treatment.
We also treat for Flying ants, Pharaoh ants, Carpenter ants and Argentinian ants.

 

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs conceal themselves very well although they are visible to the human eye. They stay undetected as they retreat into cracks and crevices in your home. The bedbug feeds on the host by finding a bare patch of skin through which it forces the feeding tube of its mouthparts whilst at the same time injecting the host with its saliva. The saliva contains a chemical that prevents the blood from clotting and it is this substance that causes the itch and swelling associated with the bite.
Bedbugs are more active at night and infestations occur mainly in the bedroom and lounge areas. These insects need to be where a host is going to be and if in the bedroom, they will come out at night while the host is sleeping. Bed bugs can be found in bed frames, headboards, wardrobes, behind any loose or peeling wallpaper and in cracks in woodwork. In the living area they tend to be found in soft furnishings and are often found around the arm joints of armchairs. Generally black dots closely bunched together are signs of bed bug faeces. Bed bugs also hide under your carpets.
The initial warning of a growing infestation is from being bitten. The bite from this insect can be very irritating and the resulting irritancy of the anti-coagulant chemical around the bite site can be severe, particularly to people with soft sensitive skin. Scratching is difficult to resist but this can cause infection of the bite area. If this is a likely problem, you should consult a Doctor or Chemist to obtain appropriate medication.

How do we control bedbugs?
A thorough inspection should be made to determine the extent and source of the infestation. Bedbugs are the number one transported pest. They can be carried into homes if we have been in a location with a bed bug infestation such as cinemas, hotels, public transport or from sleeping in an infected bed.
Treatment for bedbugs is detailed and complex. We would normally need to carry out three visits against bedbugs. Treatment consists of a dual insecticide treatment to the entire premises apart from the kitchen and bathroom. Before the treatment commences the residents are asked to vacate the premises and cannot return for four hours.
We would usually need to carry out two further visits at weekly intervals after the initial treatment and the premises are treated in exactly the same way as the initial visit. Once the treatments have been carried out, our technician will fill out an online inspection report and discuss ways of preventing re-infestation.
Our bed bug treatment comes with a three month guarantee.

Cockroaches

Most people in the UK who have an infestation are likely to have the German or Oriental species of cockroach. The Oriental cockroach is dark brown/black and ranges from 17-30mm whilst the more common German cockroach is lighter brown and smaller at 12-15mm.
German cockroaches are found throughout buildings but show a preference for warm and humid areas. They are good climbers and are able to climb vertical glass or tiled surfaces. German cockroaches are usually more visible due to the areas they live in. In a kitchen you are likely to find them in cupboards, behind fridge motors, under sink units and around boiler units. Another indication of an infestation are signs of faeces in cupboards, behind appliances and worktops, these faeces resemble black dots. An infestation of these cockroaches can be quickly established once they have entered the premises.
Oriental cockroaches are normally found in damp humid conditions and in basements. They are more difficult to treat as they tend to live in the fabric of the building. Oriental cockroaches are known for their preference for feeding on rubbish or waste material that has begun to decay.

How do we control cockroaches?
Our treatment programme for cockroaches usually consists of three visits. Our technician will carry out a thorough inspection of your premises prior to any treatment and assess the level and extent of the infestation. Before a treatment is carried out it is important to identify the cockroach species. This will provide details of the biology, life cycle and habits of the pest. Once this has been established he will then be able to carry out treatment to the appropriate areas. All our treatments are completely safe for children and animals.
Our second visit will reveal the extent of the infestation and areas which are more heavily infested. These areas will be treated with the appropriate insecticides. The sticky insect monitor traps laid down on the first visit will be checked and replaced where necessary. Our third visit will conclude the treatment programme.

Where there is a history of cockroaches in certain areas it is recommended that a service contract be taken out to maintain an acceptable level of control and prevent the spread of infestation.

Fleas

The flea is small at around 2 mm long and reddish brown in colour. Although the cat and the dog are the preferred hosts for fleas they are capable of feeding on humans and frequently do. The distress caused by the bites can be considerable in cats, dogs and humans. The flea is an intermediate host for the tapeworm which normally develops in the digestive tract of the dogs, cats and some wild carnivores, but also occurs in humans.

How do we control fleas?

Our treatment consists in identifying the source of the infestation i.e. the host animal, and if appropriate, treating it with a suitable veterinary product. Such a treatment should not be carried out by a pest control technician but by the owner of the animal or a veterinarian.

A residual insecticide will then be applied to areas frequented by the animal. Normally this would consist of spraying all areas in the premises as a precaution. Before the treatment commences the residents are asked to vacate the premises and cannot return for four hours. We would usually need to carry out two further treatments for fleas between 7-10 days apart, the premises are treated in exactly the same way as on the initial visit. Once the treatments have been carried out, our technician will fill out an inspection report and discuss ways of preventing re-infestation.
Our flea treatment comes with a three month guarantee.

Flies

A thorough inspection should be made to determine the extent and source of the infestation. We would normally need to carry out three visits against flies. Treatment consists of a dual insecticide treatment to the entire premises. Before the treatment commences the residents are asked to vacate the premises and cannot return for four hours.
We would usually need to carry out two further visits at weekly intervals after the initial treatment and the premises are treated in exactly the same way as the initial visit.

Mice

Mice will drink water if available but can survive on food with a moisture content of 15%. They are omnivorous and feed from a number of different points but will eat almost anything they find. In a house you will find them in the kitchen, under units, behind fridges and bath panels, under stair cupboards, boiler and airing cupboards to name just a few places.

How do we control mice?
Our technician will carry out a thorough inspection of your premises prior to any treatment and assess the level and extent of the infestation. Once this has been established he will then be able to carry out treatment to the appropriate areas. All our treatments are completely safe around children and animals. The bait is placed in plastic tamper resistant bait boxes where necessary. For mice we usually carry out two treatment visits. The usual follow-up time after the initial baiting programme has been established is 7-10 days.
The second visit will let us know how bad the infestation was and where you have had evidence of mice, it will also tell us if the premises are clear.  The technician will re-bait as necessary or proof all holes if the treatment is complete.
Once the treatments have been carried out, our technician will fill out an online inspection report and discuss ways of preventing re-infestation.
Our mouse treatment comes with a three month guarantee.

Moths

The common clothes moth is a significant pest. The caterpillar (larva) of this moth is recognized as a serious pest as it can derive nourishment not only from clothing – in particular wool – but also, like most moth caterpillars, from many other sources such as woollens, angora, cashmere and furs, the damage they do from feeding can be severe. The larvae are often difficult to detect as they shun the light, adult moths are found all year round. In domestic properties obvious signs of infestation are damage to clothes and carpets especially around the edges.

How do we control them?
Our treatment programme for moths usually consists of three visits. Our technician will carry out a thorough inspection of your premises prior to any treatment and assess the level and extent of the infestation.
Treatments consist of tracing the source of infestation, removing and destroying any infested materials and then applying a residual insecticide to infested areas. Additionally, we would also treat with an ultra-low volume application of insecticide.
Whilst there is no difficulty in controlling these moths, it is essential that a thorough treatment be carried out and that every possible larva development site is treated. They may be found in association with bird and mammal nests, therefore these possibilities should be checked when tracing the source of the infestation.
Please note that before any treatment commences the property has to be prepared for treatment and full instructions are giving at the time of booking.
Our second and third visits are carried out at weekly intervals after the initial treatment and are exactly the same as the first visit.
Our moth treatment comes with a three month guarantee.

Pigeons

The feral pigeon is found throughout Britain and can be found nesting in urban and rural environments. Feral pigeons tend to scavenge food and can be found at food premises, docks and mills. In urban environments they are encouraged by members of the public who feed them with birdseed and bread.

How do we control pigeons?
Nesting pigeons can cause a build-up of fouling, which in turn can cause a health and safety issue. We remove all pigeon fouling and nesting debris and then spray the area with a biocide to eliminate bacteria, viruses and fungus associated with pigeon fouling.
Various methods of control for this species are allowed by law, these include all humane methods such as netting and anti-perch spikes as well as fire gel systems.

Rats

Rats will normally be found under kitchen units, in basements, under garden sheds, under decking, behind bath panels and in roof voids to name just a few places. They are considered omnivorous and eat on average one tenth of their body weight each day. Rats must drink water daily unless the food source is extremely moist. They explore locations quite freely but they do have a fear of new objects, this is known as neophobia and this should be taken into account when baits are checked.

How do we control rats?

Our technician will carry out a thorough inspection of your premises prior to any treatment and assess the level and extent of the infestation. Once this has been established he will then be able to carry out treatment to the appropriate areas. All our treatments are completely safe around children and animals. The bait is placed in plastic tamper resistant bait boxes where necessary. For rats we usually carry out two treatment visits. The usual follow-up time after the initial baiting programme has been established is 7-10 days.
The second visit will let us know how bad the infestation was and where you have had evidence of rats it will also tell us if the premises are clear. The technician will re-bait as necessary or proof all holes if the treatment is complete. Once the treatments have been carried out, our technician will fill out an online inspection report and discuss ways of preventing re-infestation.

Our rat treatment comes with a three month guarantee.

Squirrels

Squirrels are common residents of urban parks and gardens. They frequently enter domestic roof spaces and once inside they can cause major damage as they chew woodwork, tear up fibreglass insulation and strip insulation from electrical wiring and water pipes.

How do we control squirrels?
Physically blocking gaps and entry holes with wire mesh is usually the best answer. Various types of traps are also available.
Our squirrel treatment comes with a three month guarantee.

Wasps

If wasps are going in and out of particular hole on a regular basis, it is likely you have a wasps nest. Wasps also visit dustbins and waste depots which can lead to the spread of disease and contamination of foodstuffs. As a general rule, you should not attempt to treat a wasp nest by yourself as it is likely to be difficult and potentially dangerous. You should not remove a nest from a roof space, this job should be carried out by a professional pest controller. The main hazard is the risk of ‘anaphylactic shock’ which can arise from even a single wasp sting.

How do we control wasps?

Wasp nests can be controlled by applying an insecticidal dust into the entrance of the nest at high pressure. Once this has been carried out the wasps will distribute the dust naturally around the nest, thus killing the queen and the rest of the wasps. This will normally take about four hours depending on the size of the nest.

We also treat for Masonry bees.

Foxes

Foxes have adapted to live in urban environments and have often been found making their homes in our gardens, sheds, cellars and garages. They are predators and can be unpredictable as well as carriers of mange, fleas, ticks and Weils’ disease some of these which can potentially be passed onto humans and pets.

 

We have Urban Fox Management Specialists who can advise on the best course of treatment i.e. trapping cycles and onsite destruction of animals as required by law.
