PEST CONTROL

BIRD

BIRD

Pigeons and seagulls can become a real nuisance for your business. Itís not just the mess they make; they can also damage your premises by dislodging roof tiles and blocking guttering. There are a number of other problems that mean you should adopt bird control measures sooner rather than later. Pigeons and seagulls on your premises can be a health hazard, by spreading diseases such as Ornithosis, E.Coli and Salmonella. Deface buildings and vehicles with their droppings. They frequently foul entrances and pavements, which can become dangerously slippery.

Encourage insect infestations such as bird mites, textile beetles and fleas Ė these are attracted to their nests and roosting sites.
Attack customers and employees, especially during the breeding season when they are defending their young.

CAT

CATCats are wonderful pets and coming home to one can be a pleasurable experience indeed. However, you may sometimes face cats straying into your garden or premises, which can cause quite a few headaches. Digging up carefully laid flower beds, scratching up furniture in the garden and even dirtying the place up are just some of the things that cats do. Another area of concern could be that these cats can cause harm to other pets in the house. Puppies, birds and cats of one house could be harmed by such stray cats coming onto your property. Thus, cat control is essential to protect your garden and your pets.

INSECT

INSECTAs the majority of ant species prefer sunny climes, our climate is not suitable for many of them. However, the few species found here can be a nuisance when they get into your home. Garden or Black ants arenít thought to carry diseases, the trouble is you donít know where theyíve been foraging outside, so you wonít want them marching through your food cupboards. Ants will travel in a wide range searching for food, following trails they have established and clustering around the source of food, becoming a nuisance in homes, organisations and businesses. Small piles of earth around holes in soil and at the base of exterior walls indicate their origin.

MOLE

MOLE

European (garden) moles can do considerable damage to turf, lawns, formal gardens, fairways, greens and sports grounds with their constant digging.  They can quickly establish themselves in a location due to their ability to tunnel up to 4 metres an hour, creating complex burrow systems. The eyesight of moles is generally poor, as is their sense of smell. They find food by their acute sense of touch and vibration.Mole hills and ridges spoil lawns, bowling and golf greens and flower beds. Their tunnelling damages the roots of young plants and exposes stones and debris that can damage machinery. These factors are costly to gardeners and businesses that rely on their grounds, lawns, greens or gardens. 

MOUSE & RAT

MOUSE & RATRats can transmit a number of serious diseases. They can be very persistent and if rats gain access into your home or business they can spread disease, cause damaged and contaminate food. One pair of rats shed more that 1 million body hairs each year and a single rat can leave up to 25,000 droppings. Taking prompt action at the first sign of rats with ensure your problem can be quickly treated.

In the UK we are lucky to have a varied environment, rich in wildlife. There are however times when elements of our wildlife can come into conflict with people and property. When this does occur the problems that wildlife can pose vary from damage to the fabric and structure of buildings to harming crops and plants. On rare occasions they can pose a health risk.
