Our pest control company provides professional Ant Control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
The commonest species that invades houses is the Black Garden Ant. Having your food cupboards invaded by hungry ants is not pleasant. They always seem to be everywhere you look..and there are so many of them!
Usually they are more of a nuisance than a serious problem, but if left untreated they can do some damage to the fabric of the building. Luckily, they are fairly easy to control.
We use either a wet or dry spray, depending upon the circumstances and usually only 1 visit is required.
Our pest control company provides professional Bedbug Control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
"Sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite."
They do bite. And they are very tough and hardy. Infested rooms may have bugs under wallpaper or in crevices in the furniture and joinery. They generally emerge to feed at night and their bite can cause severe local irritation.
Treatment is simple, but multiple visits may be required.
Our pest control company provides professional Bee Control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
Providers of honey and almost universally viewed with affection by the public, honey bees are one of the most well known insects. Many species of bee are found in the United Kingdom. Some produce honey, some do not. Some live in highly organised colonies, some on their own. Some sting, some do not.
Bees rarely present problems as pests. However, feral swarms and nests can set up home in undesirable places such as chimneys and wall cavities. Control may, therefore, be necessary.
Every bee case, whether honey or not, is investigated to see if it is possible to remove the swarm or nest and we always contact the local association to see if they are interested. However, local bee-keeping associations will only take honey bees and not every bee infestation is honey bees. Where possible, we always remove swarms to a safe location and contact the local association.
We also, on occasion, advise our client to leave the nest if we feel that the nest is not a threat. However, we also have a health and safety responsibility to the client and sometimes we have little choice but to remove the nest using pest control methods.
Bees are not protected and control is best left to professional; bees have a barbed sting and die once they have used this. However, they will sting when provoked and attempts to kill them will provoke them.
Masonry bees may occasionally cause problems. They nest in a wide range of cavities some of which they excavate themselves. They have the ability to build nests by tunnelling through soft brick mortar, generally in older properties. Only rarely do large numbers occur together but due to the fact that vulnerable buildings tend to be repeatedly attacked, quite severe damage can occur over several seasons.
Modern houses are not immune either, small gaps left in otherwise sound mortar may be colonised. Although this is not a problem from a structural point of view, some householders are distressed by such activity.
In the long term, re-pointing with sound mortar is the only answer. This must be thorough however, as bees hunting for a nest site will soon locate areas that have been missed. Small individual holes are easily filled.
Application of an insecticide to the entry holes will quickly kill the occupants.
Our pest control company provides professional Cluster Fly control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
You know if you have Cluster Flies. They are everywhere. They are sluggish in flight and are a nuisance in the house. In autumn they congregate in large numbers in upper rooms or roof spaces of houses to hibernate. They return every year to hibernate, as they have done for thousands of years, it's just that your house is now in their way.
Treatment for Cluster Flies is simple and very effective, but it will need doing every year. The numbers will get less each year, so eventually they will become less of a nuisance to you.
Our pest control company provides professional Cockroach control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
The cockroach is associated with dirty unhygienic kitchens. I think we all dread seeing a cockroach, especially in our own home.
But generally they thrive around the heating ducts and boiler rooms of large centrally heated buildings e.g. hospitals, bakeries, hotel and restaurant kitchens, laundries and blocks of flats. They cluster around pipes, stoves, sinks, especially in humid areas. They eat any sort of food and emerge after dark, from their inaccessible harbourages, to forage, contaminating food and food utensils, or food preparation surfaces as they go. They taint food with an obnoxious smell and may be carriers of various diseases, including serious food poisoning.
Our pest control company provides professional Flea Control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
Don't we all just hate fleas? They make us feel dirty and untidy. Just thinking about them makes us itch. I bet you're scratching right now, just reading this. They can also hurt. In fact the pain of the bites and the allergic reactions most of us get to flea bites is when most of us realise that we have fleas.
Pets are usually to blame. The Cat flea is by far the commonest species of flea and readily bites humans. Poor dogs get the blame as well, but the dog flea is rare. There are also bird fleas.
Fumigation is the only way to get rid of fleas. The whole property needs to be done and we usually use a dry-fogging machine as it helps the chemical get into all the nooks and crannies where fleas lay their eggs.
Fleas can be persistent, as their eggs are extremely well protected, and fleas themselves are very tough. Our treatment is usually a one-off treatment, but sometimes a second treatment is required.
Our pest control company provides professional Fly Control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
Yuck! "If you followed a fly for a day, you wouldn't eat for a week”. Flies feed by vomiting saliva on to the food surface, treading it in and sucking up the resulting liquid. In the course of doing so, the fly contaminates the food with bacteria from its gut and its feet.

Our pest control company provides professional Wasp Control services across Rugby, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Lutterworth, Daventry, Northampton.
We all hate wasps. A large, conspicuous buzzing insect with yellow and black stripes. They have a sweet tooth at one end and a painful sting at the other. If you have a wasp nest at your property it will start to be a real problem in August/September time. The nest could easily hold over 30,000 wasps and they will sting if annoyed or threatened.
Treatment is quick and very effective. The wasps usually die within 2 hours of treatment and a follow-up visit is rarely needed.
