OUR PEST CONTROL SERVICES
With today’s health & safety requirements, the need to record pest activity, treatment details and demonstrate due diligence with a pro-active approach to pest management is now more important than ever.
The House Mouse is a very common pest of buildings and can gain access through very small gaps putting most premises at risk of infestation.
Prior to treatment, a survey of the site should take place to decide on the extent and size of the mouse infestation.
As mice feed at numerous places, the key to successful control is to have a large number of baiting points. Baits containing anticoagulants are generally effective, with a variety of formulations available including whole grain, blocks and pastes. Traps can also be used to quickly reduce large numbers of mice and proofing / housekeeping should be considered to offer a longer-term solutions.
The most sure-fire way of knowing that you have a rat infestation is when you come face to face with a rat. They won’t attack for any reason, but you should be careful that you don’t get into a position where they can bite you as this will be very painful and quite serious.
Rats tend to have only a few feeding sites and so the key to successful control is to ensure there is a good quantity of bait available (sub-lethal doses can affect the level of control which will be achieved longer-term). Whole grain bait is the most commonly used, and active ingredients such as Difenacoum and Bromadialone can be used indoors and out.
Flies spread diseases and are easily dealt with through the installation of an electronic fly killer.
Correctly positioned electric fly killers help control any flying insects that enter your premises.
We can carry out a chemical treatment which involves applying a residual insecticide to all fly alighting surfaces.
Prevention is better than the cure so it is important to deny flies breeding sites. We provide advice on these matters as part of our service.
WASPS CAN BE VERY AGGRESSIVE so it is recommended that professional personnel are used in the treatment of wasps.
An insecticide will be used to cover the entrance to the nest. Returning wasps will carry the insecticide into the heart of the nest and within a few hours all wasps should be dead.
Finding the nest is not always easy but following the flight pattern from a source of food could prove helpful. Wasp nests should be treated early or late in the day when the activity is at a minimum.
Cockroaches are just too good at hiding and too good at multiplying for amateurs to have a chance. This work must be carried out by an experienced professional pest operative.
One of the best of these cockroach treatments is carrying out a baiting programme as cockroaches are nocturnal and can live in inaccessible cracks or near electrical wiring where it is not possible to use sprays. The baits are placed where the cockroaches are active. Cockroaches are cannibals and will feed off their own dead so cockroaches which feed off a poisoned insect will die of secondary poisoning.
Although other signs of an infestation include smear marks or droppings, cast skins, egg cases, an almond-like smell or dead insects, cockroaches are very visible at night time.
