Rodents information – Pest Control Telford

Domestic rodents live in close association with humans. These commensal rodents are nocturnal and tend to move indoors to warmer areas during late summer or early winter and return to the outdoors in late spring or early summer, or remain indoors if food and suitable harborage are available. Commensal rodents generally have poor sense of vision, but they have acute sense of smell, touch, and taste. They tend to gnaw through any material that is softer than their enamel, and they are generally good climbers, jumpers, swimmers and burrowers.

Rodents can be very destructive pests that can contaminate foods and preparation areas, cause costly structural damage, and even cause house fires by chewing on electrical wires. Most importantly, rodents are reservoirs and vectors for numerous diseases.

Wasp information- Pest Control Telford

If you’ve spotted lots of wasps and you’re worried about getting stung, we’ve put together a little information about Britain’s most annoying BBQ guest.

Queen wasps emerge and start working on new nests in the Spring, as the weather gets warmer. By the Summer months, wasp nests are working overtime, with up to 300 eggs being produced every day and up to 5,000 adults feeding grubs and building the nest structure.

One of Britain’s most feared and potentially aggressive pests, wasps are known for their nasty stings and seemingly unprovoked attacks. In reality, wasps will usually only attack a person if they feel threatened. The problem is a social wasp in distress emits a pheromone that sends nearby colony members into a defensive, stinging frenzy. That’s right – scare a wasp and it might call for backup!

If you’re sensitive to wasp stings then they can send you into anaphylaxis – a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Children, elderly people, those with allergies, and household pets are particularly sensitive to wasp stings. If you’re worried about a large amount of wasp activity around your home and family, please call and let us help.

 Wasps around your business 

If you own a shop or restaurant you need to take wasp pest control seriously. If your customers experience a high level of wasp activity then they’re likely to complain and request a refund or leave a negative review. Either could result in a loss of future income. You have a duty to protect your customers and staff.

Mole information- Pest Control Telford

Moles are ground–dwelling carnivores that prefer to eat insects instead of your garden plants. However, their underground tunnels can ruin your garden and lawn and make an easy access to your plants for other rodents.

If you have a significant invasion of moles or similar pests, it may be a sign of trouble. Moles are usually found where soil is rich in organic matter. Their presence in unusually large numbers might be due to a high population of soil pests.

Raised ridges and mounds of loose, excavated earth commonly known as mole hills indicate the presence of moles. They make the turf look unsightly and difficult to maintain.Their burrowing can lead to subsidence, especially on lighter soils and they can cause considerable damage to newly seeded lawns. Their activities can destroy a lawn or playing surface, so time and effort is needed to replace or remove the soil that forms the molehills. If you have a mole issue please don’t hesitate to call the experts.
