Cluster Flies Treatment

Cluster flies, also known as attic flies, are household pests and are similar in size to a housefly but are slightly larger and darker and are more sluggish in their movement. As their name suggest, they will often swarm together for warmth throughout the colder months. Homes which have experienced a cluster fly infestation will often suffer a recurrence in subsequent years due to the pheromones which they leave behind, which is attractive to other cluster flies.

Cluster flies are capable of crawling through small openings in the walls of a structure. They hibernate in secluded parts of houses like attics and wall voids. On sunny winter days, the wall voids become warm and the cluster flies try to move toward light. Very often they find themselves in the inhabited parts of the house as they move towards windows.

Our technicians will often use airborne fogging insecticides with a residual effect to eliminate cluster fly infestations.

Bees are increasingly a source of complaint to domestic customers. In normal circumstances, we would advise to leave bees well alone as they play such an important role in the natural world. Excellent advice on the most common bees and even how you can find a local bee keeper to help remove honey bees can be found on the British Bee Keepers Association website.

However, there are occasions when the nest presents an unacceptable risk such as when they have taken up residence in your chimney or they are very close to your windows or you are concerned for young children.

Bed Bug Treatment

The Bed Bug is found world wide including throughout Britain. Bed Bug infestations are often associated with dirty premises but clean and well run establishments can become infested as they are often introduced by second-hand furniture or on the clothes and luggage of visitors.

Bed Bugs do not live on people but they will hide in cracks and crevices around sleeping areas. In a typical bedroom Bed Bugs may be found in the frame of the bed, in the bedside furniture, seams of nearby curtains, behind electrical sockets and switches, behind loose wallpaper or even in clocks and radios.

To treat for Bed Bugs, a thorough and time consuming approach is essential for good control. Rooms have to be dismantled before treatment can begin. Please have a read of the information on the steps you should take before treatment takes place.

Cockroach Treatment

Few insects will instil as much abhorrence as the cockroach when found in the home or seen in a place where you may be eating out. The reaction is not without foundation as they are important transmitters of disease with their unsavoury habits and ability to transmit disease.

Treatment of cockroach infestations can be tricky. It requires a good understanding of the extent of the infestation, how established the colony is and knowledge of the lifecycle of the particular species of cockroach.

Several visits will be required in order to ensure complete eradication of this pest. We will be keen to establish how an infestation occurred so that adequate measures can be recommended to prevent a recurrence.

Flea Treatment

There are many different species of flea that can find their way in to our homes and finding an uninvited meal on either us or our pets. ​The most common in the UK is the cat flea which, although it prefers the cat, will quite happily dine out on us for a change!

If you suspect that you may have an infestation of fleas, either by suffering skin irritations, or spots on the skin, or indeed by seeing them, you should first check any bedding used by your pets and the cat or dog itself for any signs. Adult Fleas are about 2-7mm long and brownish in colour.

Their bodies are compressed which allows them to move efficiently through hairs, and their relatively large hind legs allow them to have excellent jumping qualities.

Ant Treatment

Ants can often be extremely distressing and a serious nuisance particularly when they invade our houses foraging for food. There are many different species of any in the UK but the most common nuisance species are the Black Garden Ant and the Pharaoh's Ant.

Ants will nest in a whole variety of suitable sites including sandy soil used to form the base of paved garden paths and in the foundation of houses.

Our technicians achieve control using a combination of of professional grade gel baits and residual insecticides that are harmless to people but very effective and controlling and eliminating ant nests

Moth Treatment

Moths can be a serious pest control problem to Chester residents and businesses. Although they do not pose a health risk, their larvae cause serious damage in particular to clothes, fabrics, furs, leather and carpets. Moths digest keratin which is the main constituent of natural materials.

Common indicators of a moth infestation are:-
●small pin-prick holes in clothes
●bald patches on carpets
●adult moths (either crawling or on the wing)
●maggot-like larvae (moth caterpillars/wax-worms)
●the silken tubes or cases in which moth larvae live
●pupae (silk cocoons) which the larvae turn into moths

Rats and Rat Control

Rats are a real pest, they say when you are in a built up area, you are never 10 metres from one and when they get a whiff of waste, rubbish, leftover food they will be there in a flash. Many of our local customers in Chester centre complain of having a rat pest problem and we have the experience and knowledge to professionally remove a rat infestation from your property.

Mice and Mouse Control

The house mouse is the common pest in urban environments and in domestic premises, mice will head for anywhere where food is stored. They will also find safe areas to live and breed in airing cupboards, under floor spaces and any other similar undisturbed cavity. They will often travel through a property following pipe and electrical cables and can access a property through extremely small openings. It is often said that if you can get a pencil through a gap, that a mouse can fit through it!

Droppings from mice are similar to in size and shape to grains of rice and are the usual most evident indication of an infestation. Control is usually achieved using specialist rodenticides carefully placed to avoid causing problems to children and pets.

Squirrels and Squirrel Control

Grey squirrels are found in a wide range of habitats from parks and gardens to woodland. They spend part of their time foraging on the ground but are always within easy reach of trees. They usually have their young either in dreys (nests made of twigs and leaves) or in holes in trees.

They will also breed in roof spaces where they may build their nests from loft insulation or other available materials. Grey squirrels do not hibernate but are less active during periods of cold weather. They normally have two litters each year; the first in February to March and a second in June to July. The litter size averages three to four, and the young are independent at about three months of age.
