Pests We Eradicate:
Bedbugs are reddish-brown, flattened, oval, and wingless. Bedbugs have
microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. Adults grow to 4–5
mm in length and 1.5–3 mm wide. A female bedbug can lay up to 300 eggs
in her life time. An adult bed bug can go for 9 months without feeding,
however, young need to feed often for their moults. If you would like
more information on Bedbug removal, bedbug treatments/ methods or bedbug
bites and the risks of bedbugs, call us today and speak with a local,
highly trained and experienced pest controller.
Nests can be found in a variety of places including lofts, sheds, air
bricks, guttering and holes within brickwork, plus many more areas. All
wasps begin to build nests in April/ May and can be a major nuisance
throughout the summer and autumn. If allergic to their sting, reaction
can range from a sore swelling to the potentially fatal Anaphylactic
treat the nest or entrance point with a pesticide powder, killing all
wasps within a few hours. NEVER attempt to treat a nest yourself. Once a
nest is established you will not be able to effectively and safely
dispose of it. You risk serious injury to save a relatively small fee.
Always call a professional!
We do not
kill swarms of bees. Our affiliated Beekeeper will collect and release
them elsewhere. Unfortunately, if the swarm goes into a chimney, or
other inaccessible area, it is usually not possible to get them out
alive. If you are able to live with bees living in a disused chimney or
other area then leave them alone. It is important to contact us straight
away if you want to get rid of the colony as bees make honey. If you
allow a store of honey to build up in a chimney, even after the original
colony has been eradicated, every passing swarm of bees will attempt to
re-inhabit the original nesting point. Chimneys which have accommodated
an established colony must either be capped off or swept. Sweeping is
generally not an option when it is blocked with several hundred pounds
the name for insects that are of the order Siphonaptera which are
wingless insects and their mouth parts are adapted for piercing skin and
sucking the blood.
Fleas are small (1/16 to 1/8-inch (1.5 to 3.3 mm)
long), agile, usually dark colored (for example, the reddish-brown of
the cat flea), wingless insects with tube-like mouth-parts adapted to
feeding on the blood of their hosts. We carry out Flea treatments
regularly across Essex and East London. After any spray treatment you
will be required to leave the property for a number of hours and also
ensure adequate ventilation of the rooms. All of this will be explained
by your technician before any service treatment commences.
nocturnal animals, Mice compensate for their poor eyesight with a keen
sense of hearing, and rely especially on their sense of smell to locate
food and avoid predators.
Breeding onset is at about 50 days of
age in both females and males, although females may have their first
estrous at 25–40 days. Mice are polyestrous and breed year round;
ovulation is spontaneous. The duration of the estrous cycle is 4–5 days
and estrous itself lasts about 12 hours, occurring in the evening.
The average litter size for Mice is 10–12 during optimum production.
omnivorous and whilst they generally feed on cereals and grains, if
hungry they can take small chicks and eggs. Rats are neophobic (very
wary of anything new) and they can take 4 to 5 days before they accept a
new object into their environment. They prefer small enclosed spaces
and get around by smell and touch. They like to be up against something
as they travel, like a wall or pipe. Contrary to popular belief rats
are in fact very clean animals and spend up to 20% of their time
grooming. Rats take between 2 to 3 months to reach sexual maturity.
They can have up to 7 litters per year with an average litter size of
about 8. Rat droppings are baked bean size, torpedo shaped and squashy.
Rats spread more dangerous diseases than mice, in particular Weils
disease, the symptoms of which are flu-like. You must always wear gloves
when touching anything that may have been in contact with rat’s urine.
As they continually urinate this means anything that a rat may have been
in contact with.
There are 2 aspects to rat control in
premises. The first is to control the rats and the second is to find
out how they get in and to take appropriate measures to deny future
access. The first part is far easier than the second, but we are
extremely experienced in dealing with rats and your premises are
surveyed to identify points of access and we give advice on necessary
preventative measures. Rats will normally take a minimum of 2 visits to
control. At the beginning you will be told exactly how much the
programme will cost. Our rates are the lowest in the area. All bait is
securely placed so as to be inaccessible to pets, children and
non-target species of animals.
