Pest Control

Pest control is a term that is used to describe the many different ways in which we try to keep the numbers of pests to a minimum, or even to eradicate them all together. Depending on the type of pest that is annoying you, there are different treatments and preventative measures¹ available in london.

For a rodent problem, mice or rats for example, the treatments vary from simple monitoring and non toxic baiting programs to live snap traps and even air rifle shooting. In between these two examples are toxic baiting and glue boards. Depending on the size and severity of the rodent infestation will depend on the treatment that is carried out.

If the pest report is minimal mice, then non toxic bait may be placed in small rodent boxes first, to be regularly monitored. But if the reported pest infestation is raging rats, then a toxic pesticide bait will be placed in secure rat bait stations and regularly checked and replenished.

If the problem pest is of a smaller size, like a cockroach or bed bug, then it is an insect treatment that should be carried out. Pest control for insects is a lot more intimate as the pest control technician will have to be a lot more invasive in their inspection. As many insect problems are reported inside a property, the treatments are also different. They range from sticky trap monitoring to full fumigation.

Sometimes the pest reported may not be visible straight away, due to its size or the size of the problem. If this is the case insect sticky traps may be strategically placed and checked on just a few days later. If the problem is visible straight away but the infestation is not heavy, an insecticide¹ gel could be placed locally to the insects main feeding points. Many gels are an attractant to insects and they will feed on them not knowing that it is poisonous to them. Another option for small to medium sized insect infestations is the use of a water based insecticide¹ spray. This can be sprayed on to any surface that insects may crawl over. In extremely heavy infestations, a fumigation may need to be carried out. This is usually a last resort as preparation of a premises and complete vacancy of any people and pets has to be arranged.

There are of course some outdoor insect pests that also need to be treated, garden ants¹ and wasps being the most common. These are relatively simple to treat and eradicate. Of the two, wasps are a little harder. Wasps can usually be treated from outside with the correct equipment. But sometimes the pest control technician may need to enter the loft space to get closer to the nest to be able to pump the insecticide¹ dust straight to the heart of the nest.

The other outdoor pests, that some times enter our properties and cause us no end of grief are pigeons/birds and squirrels. These can be controlled, with traps and proofing measures.

All of the above are the most common pest control issues we deal with in london and the measures taken to help sort out the problem. There are many more pests that need controlling and many more ways to treat them:

ants, bedbugs, beetles, birds, cockroaches, fleas, fly control, mice, moth, pigeons, rats, squirrels, urban foxes, wasps, woodworm, wood worm control.
