Domestic Pest Control

Wasps

Wasps are most active in the warm summer months. In the UK, the Common Wasp and German Wasp cause the most annoyance and painful stings. Even with their special yellow and black body, they can still be confused with hornets, although hornets are not as common in this country, they can still bite and sting you. 


Mice

House mice are active all year, nesting in warm quite places like lofts or cavity walls.  They constantly gnaw, damaging furnishings & chewing packaging to access food.  Mice are known to spread disease.


Rats

Rats can transmit a number of serious diseases. They can be very persistent and if rats gain access into your home or business they can spread disease, cause damage and contaminate food.  One pair of rats shed more than 1 million body hairs each year and a single rat can leave up to 25,000 droppings.  Taking prompt action at the first sign of rats will ensure your problem can be quickly treated.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches like to live in warm homes, kitchens and wall cavities.  They often come out after dark, feeding on any type of food and they may carry diseases.


Woodworm

The term ‘woodworm’ covers many types of wood boring beetles, some with wonderful names like Deathwatch Beetle and House Longhorn Beetle. But whatever they are called, you’ll want to say goodbye to them.


Flies

There are over 120,000 species of flies worldwide.  Flies are considered pests because they pose a health risk to humans, pets and livestock.  They can infest your home or business and spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli. A few species may even bite humans and animals.


Ants

As the majority of ant species prefer sunny climes, our climate is not suitable for many of them. However, the few species found here can be a nuisance when they get into your home. Garden or Black ants aren’t thought to carry diseases, the trouble is you don’t know where they’ve been foraging outside, so you won’t want them marching through your food cupboards. Ants will travel in a wide range searching for food, following trails they have established and clustering around the source of food, becoming a nuisance in homes, organisations and businesses. Small piles of earth around holes in soil and at the base of exterior walls indicate their origin.


Bed Bugs

If you have bed bugs in your house, the only thing on your mind will be getting rid of them as quickly as possible. Bed bugs stay close to a food source, so are found where people tend to rest and sleep, hence the name bed bug.  The frustration they can cause is not only due to the emotional stress of dealing with parasites, but also the irritation of their bites and the potential for secondary infection from constant scratching.


Spiders

There are more than 35,000 species of spiders worldwide but less than a 1,000 of these are found in the UK.  Although they are seen as beneficial to our environment, many people do have an inherent fear of spiders, known as Arachnophobia.  This causes feelings of uneasiness at the mere sight of spiders, leading to excessive sweating, crying and panic attacks.  Thankfully, most species of spiders found in the UK are not considered dangerous and they rarely bite.  If you do get a spider bite, it often has little effect on most people, while a few species can cause an exceptional reaction due to their venom.


Moths

The majority of moths in the UK (approx 2,400 species) are harmless, however a few are seen as pests due to the damage their larvae cause to materials, textiles and stored products. Unlike other pests, moths pose you no health risks.  Once inside your home or business, moths can severely damage natural fibres in carpets, clothes, fabrics, fur and even leather. Moth caterpillars cause the damage by eating the protein (keratin) found in natural materials like wool, cotton and silk. This potentially puts your delicate items at particular risk of damage. 


Fleas

Fleas are a common problem in homes, especially those with pets. You may discover a problem with fleas even if you do not have pets, if previous owners of your property kept cats or dogs.  Fleas may also be carried on other, especially hairy, animals like rabbits, foxes, squirrels, rats, mice and livestock such as pigs.  As parasites, the greatest concern about the presence of fleas in your home or business comes from their bites. Although these are not painful, they can result in an uncomfortable itch or rash. Your pets could also develop allergies to flea saliva.
