Other Pests We Deal With
Pests are animals or insects which may cause harm to humans, our food, or the places we live and work. From damaging property and produce to biting or spreading disease, different pests cause different problems. Regardless of who your unwanted visitor is, it’s important to remove them quickly before costly damage can be done. That’s where we can help.
Whichever type of pest you are facing at your commercial premises in the midlands, we will provide a fast, targeted solution.
Flies and electric fly killers
Flies pose a health risk, not only to humans but to pets and livestock. They spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli, and some species have been known to bite. We can install UV-A lamps and electric fly killers in problem areas to tackle a fly infestation.
UV light attracts the flies, which are then quickly killed on contact with the electric element. Because this type of pest control requires no chemicals, it is safe for use in food preparation areas where flies can cause contamination. The units are easy to install and also simple to clean and maintain, providing a long-term solution that you can rely on to keep your space safe from flies.
We can install flyscreens to suit your exact requirements for a perfect fit to your doors or windows. Investing in bespoke screens means there will be no gaps for flies to squeeze through, blocking their entry to your property while still allowing you to enjoy a flow of fresh air.
Flyscreens are highly effective at preventing flies from entering your cafe, kitchen, restaurant or bar and will help ensure you can enjoy a fly-free summer. When used in tandem with UV-A lamps or electric fly killers, flyscreens can provide a complete solution to problem flies, offering the peace of mind that your commercial property, and your business, are protected.
Squirrels can pose a serious problem if they invade your property. They are commonly found in loft spaces, so if you have heard something running around above your head and suspect grey squirrels, it’s important to call our team, who will implement a trapping programme to effectively and humanely remove this problem pest.
In the UK, Grey squirrels are non-native and are considered an Invasive Alien Species (IAS). In addition to damaging property and posing a health risk, grey squirrels contribute to the destruction of forests and adversely affect native wildlife, particularly the red squirrel. For this reason, it is illegal to release grey squirrels into the wild, and lethal control is necessary.
Instantly recognisable, cockroaches are an unpleasant and distressing sight to come across. It’s a common misconception that they are only found in dirty places, as even the cleanest property might have cracks and crevices through which they can gain entry. Regardless of their location, cockroaches are linked to various health issues, including food poisoning, allergies and dysentery. That’s why it is essential to seek professional help as soon as you spot even a single cockroach.
Another popular myth about cockroaches is that they could survive a nuclear explosion. Although they are extremely hardy, they can be effectively controlled with a targeted treatment from our team, who will also offer advice on how to prevent a future infestation.
Often spread by domesticated animals, fleas are well-known for their bites. Although fleas don’t spread disease like other pests, their bites can cause irritation and itching for both humans and pets. The most common species of flea are cat, bird and dog fleas.
Our efficient and effective flea treatment service is priced according to the size of your property. To ensure the infestation is tackled completely, it is also essential that any cat or dog present is treated for fleas with a vet-recommended product. Hard floors, carpets and rugs should be thoroughly vacuumed – with the vacuum cleaner contents disposed of securely – and both human and pet bedding should be washed on a high heat to prevent further painful bites.
The ants that most commonly invade homes and commercial properties are black garden ants. While they don’t spread disease, they can cause a nuisance by foraging for food or creating an unsightly infestation. We can provide a fast, safe and effective solution to remove these unwelcome scavengers from your property and help you prevent their return.
There are some simple ways to avoid encouraging ants. Ensure food spillages are quickly cleaned up, keep food in sealed containers and empty rubbish bins regularly. Avoid leaving pet food out for a prolonged period, as this can also attract ants. Look out for cracks and crevices where ants could enter your property, and to prevent future infestations, block their entrance by sealing any faults.
