Pest control in Liverpool, Knowsley and Bootle

February 27, 2014 sarah Uncategorized

Pest and vermin control in the North West has seen a brisk start (2010) which is rather surprising given the very cold (weather of this last winter|winter of 2009/10}.

Pest controllers were kept busy with the usual city centre rat calls all thoughout the winter of course, but the relatively cold early part of the year has already provided some ant calls coming in.

The wet summers of 2008 and 2009 were not to the taste of the hymenoptera (sawflies, wasps, ants & bees) but 2010 looks like it will be a hectic year for flying ant problems.

Regularly ants make nests under the floors of homes and inside cavity walls causing an army of foraging ants to visit kitchens and food cupboards.

However it is at the annual mating time when they can be most troublesome as they produce winged males and queens which then mate in flight.

The appearance of several thousands of these winged ants inside houses can be traumatic indeed.

A fairly new pest was especially numerous in the Cheshire, Lancashire and Manchester area last season, the Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci).

It was not common for pest controllers in Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire to meet these pests until lately but they seemed to arrive from nowhere in recent years and already this year has seen reports of varied carpet beetle in substantial numbers.

They have a similar life cycle to moths their larvae, known as woolly bears eat natural fibres and can do a great deal of damage to carpets and some fabrics. They are a difficult and persistent pest to remove.

Those who are involved in pest control note that Bed Bugs are carrying on their renaissance in the Lancashire, Manchester and Cheshire area, often arriving as hitch-hikers in the suitcases of home-coming travellers.

Regularly the first reaction of those unfortunates who realise that they are infested with these hideous,blood-sucking insects is to destroy the old beds and purchase.

This is a costly error as despite their name bed bugs don’t just live in beds and in an infested room will be found anywhere within around five yards of the bed, in cupboards, drawers etc, even in electrical and telephone sockets and the new beds will be quickly re-infested.

Most people mix up bed bugs with dust mites which are not visible to the naked eye.They both need a different method of pest control

They dine only on blood which they syphon from their sleeping victims. People regularly associate bed bugs with dirty conditions but nothing could be less true, they do not require dirt, they dine on you!
