Pest Control

Pest Control – Rat Control, Wasp Nest Removal And More

Pest control is in high demand in the UK. Unfortunately there are lots of different types of pests that want to make your home their home. Is this a problem you are currently experiencing? Perhaps you have noticed wires and boxes being chewed through and suspect a rat problem? Maybe you suspect a wasp nest removal in your chimney? From cockroaches and bedbugs, to moles and mice, the problems vary. It can of course be extremely worrying and unsettling when you notice that pests have settled in your property. A lot of people understandably look on the Internet for advice. They would rather attempt to solve the issue themselves than pay for the services of a pest control company. Unfortunately, most of the advice provided can be ineffective, and what’s worse is that it can also be extremely dangerous. For a total solution to any pest problem you need expert service, otherwise all you might succeed in doing is moving the pests from one area of your home to another.

A lot of people are unaware of the dangers that surround removing pests. After all, it’s unlikely that you have had to carry out your own pest control before, so why would you know about it? Because of this, some people think it’s as simple as merely going in there and removing the issue. Rarely is this the case. Take wasps as a prime example. They sting when they feel threatened and these stings can lead to further symptoms, such as rashes and swelling of the throat. Moreover, most pests reproduce really quickly. Take cockroaches for instance. They can reproduce in a matter of a few weeks. Thus, if you do not deal with the problem efficiently you can easily have a much bigger and more difficult issue on our hands. This is definitely the last thing anyone wants!

Extra Information

Unless you have seen the pests with your own eyes, it can be difficult to know whether you have a problem or not. That is why we have put together this handy guide. Read on to discover some tell-tale signs that you have a pest problem…

Let’s begin with rats. Getting rid of rats is a popular pest control service in the UK. They can be a real problem, especially as they will start chewing through your home. Chewing marks are one of the most common signs, whether it is chewed wires, boxes or indeed food in your cupboard being affected. Other signs include rat droppings. They resemble a large grain of rice, yet are dark brown in colour. Rats can typically produce up to 40 droppings each night. Aside from this, you may hear a lot of scratching noises. Brown rats make more of a grinding noise, whereas black rats make a scratching noise, as they often climb into loft spaces since they are the better climber of the two species. Finally, rub marks and running tracks are other clear indications that you could have a problem with rats.

Another common reason for requiring professional pest control is to get rid of cockroaches. As cockroaches reproduce quickly, this is certainly an issue that needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. There are various signs that you are suffering from a cockroach problem. One of the most common signs is shell casings, which are dark brown, oval-shaped and small. They are essentially the egg cases of recently hatched cockroaches. You may also notice an awful smell, as cockroaches give off a strong and unpleasant odour. This is something you won’t be able to avoid once they are present in large numbers. Have you noticed smear marks and droppings? If so, these are unfortunately additional indications of cockroach infestation. Their droppings are very small, typically no longer than 3 mm in size. Needless to say, you will probably see some cockroaches as well, especially in cases of severe infestation.

Next we have wasp nest removal, which is definitely a service that must be carried out by professionals, as it can be very dangerous. A wasp nest is usually something you cannot miss and thus it is one of the easiest pest problems to identify. Nevertheless, you may not know exactly where the problem is coming from. In order to determine this, carefully watch the flight path of the returning wasps. They will tend to always be seen hovering around the same area of your property. Once mid-summer comes around you won’t have any trouble determining where the wasp nest is, which is why you need professional assistance as quickly as possible. We all know that wasps sting, but they do so when they feel threatened, which is undoubtedly how they will feel if you attempt to remove their nest. A wasp’s sting can be extremely dangerous, with individuals being hospitalised in rare instances. So don’t take any chances.

Next we have bedbugs. There is a massive misconception regarding bedbug treatment and how they can end up being in your house. A lot of people tend to think that bedbugs only appear in properties whereby there is bad hygiene. However, this is not the case. In fact, individuals often bring bedbugs back with them when they have been abroad and thus this is how they end up infesting your home. It can be difficult to spot bedbugs, as they usually hide during the day. The following areas are where you will most likely find bedbugs – behind baseboards, in the bed frame, on the headboard and along the mattress seams. Nevertheless, one of the biggest indications of a bedbug problem is blood on our bedding. These will be brown in colour. You may also notice that you have bites on your leg.

What about mice control? If you are suffering from mice infestation you need to contact professionals as quickly as possible. Mice carry bacteria and this can lead to illnesses like listeria and salmonella. Nevertheless, mice do leave signs of their presence that can help you to determine the issue. Mouse droppings are one of these, with mice leaving roughly 80 per day. They are typically 3 – 6 mm long and black in colour. Aside from this, you may actually find a nest, which can be in the airing cupboard or under the floorboards. Gnawing is another common sign. If you notice damage to your cables, furniture, carpets and such like, this is likely to be a sign that you have a mouse problem. A musky odour is another indication that mice are present in your property. You may also notice dark grey smear marks.

Aside from the pest control issues that have already been mentioned, another common problem is flea infestation. Luckily, human flea infestations are exceptionally uncommon in the UK. Nevertheless, this does not stop fleas from being a problem in the home, as household pets are susceptible to flea infestations. Thus, you need to pay close attention to your pet. If you notice fleas crawling on their fur or skin then you know you definitely have a problem. Is your pet scratching more than they normally do? This is another indication that they have been infested with fleas. Aside from this you should look out for flea droppings. These will be usually found on your pet’s bedding or on your pet’s skin. These droppings are small and black. Whilst fleas can’t live on your skin, you may even find that you have been bitten.

Do you need ant control? There are three clear indications that you could need this service. Of course the first would be ant sightings in your home. Ants tend to come out during the night and they will feed on foods that contain fat and sugar. Outbreaks are most likely during the summer months and commonly occur after a spell of warm and humid weather. Aside from this, you may actually hear ants. If you have an active colony in your home then you will hear a rustling sound. Finally, another clear sign that you have a problem with ant infestation is frass, which is essentially excrement or debris that is produced by the insects. You will typically notice this as small piles of wood shavings and sawdust. This is a sign of a more advanced ant infestation. This is because the ants have essentially hollowed out a piece of wood so that their colony has room to grow.

Hopefully you now have a better understanding of some of the most common pest infestations and how to tell if you are suffering from them. There are indeed many other types of animals and insects that can be a problem. Moles can completely ruin a lawn or garden, for example – an evident sign that this mammal is living under your home. You could have a rabbit problem if you notice gnaw marks on trees, destruction of plants and grass, as well as round and coarse faecal pellets in your garden. From woodworms to carpet beetles, there are many other issues. For further information on signs of pest infestation, please head to our website, www.pestserve.co.uk.
