Ants come into our homes and workplaces to find things they can eat, particularly things that are sweet or sticky. The most common species are the garden and black ant, but you can also find infestations of flying ants and even tropical pharaoh ants in the UK. It’s important to determine the exact species before trying to eradicate them, as they have different colony systems. In some cases, if an ants nest is scattered they can rebuild it very quickly, potentially giving you a larger problem than you had originally. We strategically place insecticide to remove the infestation and prevent the ants from re-entering the property.
Bedbugs are a very irritating pest and can prove particularly difficult to eradicate! Surprisingly the spread of bedbugs is also a growing problem in the UK. Lurking in crevices in mattresses and bed frames, they emerge at night to feed on the blood of their sleeping hosts. If you’ve noticed bites appearing on your skin in the night, or tiny droplets of blood on your bedding, you could possibily have a bedbug problem.
An established infestation of bedbugs will create an unpleasant smell, caused by the bugs’ secretions, and will nearly always require the services of a pest control expert to deal with it; this will usually require very deep cleaning as well as the use of insecticides.
Fleas are a common problem in UK homes and businesses, and flea infestations are becoming more of an issue in the North East of England. Fleas are ectoparasitic insects, which means they survive by living on a host animal. Typically, this is a pet such as a cat or dog but the tiny wingless insects can also live on other furry animals like rabbits, squirrels, foxes, and rodents like rats and mice. Getting rid of fleas in your home isn't easy. However we offer safe, effective treatments for your home or business to ensure complete control of your flea infestation.
Removing a Mole infestation on your property needs to be done by a professional pest controller to ensure the problem is dealt with effectively and efficiently. It’s important that you seek treatment immediately after identifying a mole problem as moles can tunnel up to 4 metres an hour and create extensive burrow systems, making them harder to control.
Cluster flies are often found in attics and cavity walls and are often seen around window frames. This type of Fly can just appear in their thousands infesting properties in a single day and become a severe/unsightly nuisance. If temperatures happen to rise within a property during the colder months they may emerge again.
If you find yourself with a fly infestation within your property you may require a residual treatment that gets rid of the flies and controls them for several weeks afterwards.
Did you know that some Moths are shiny in appearance while others are brown or grey? Maybe not, but one thing you know for sure is that you do not want them in your wardrobes or carpets. Our technician can help you with moth extermination before these pests start to destroy all of your clothes and soft furnishings. Moths love the dark enclosed space of closets. The other problem with house moths is that when they breed, the numbers can quickly become excessive, and the little creatures fly around the house and soon get just about everywhere.

This will provide details of the biology, life cycle and habits of the pest, which can be exploited in the control programme. Once this has been established, we will then be able to carry out treatment to the appropriate areas.
