Pests will take advantage of whatever environment we leave open, we create some ideal environments for them to thrive. What pests are likely to invade your home or business today.
Garden Ants (Lasius niger) are perhaps the best known ant to the people of the UK. At home they will start outside and move inside to source food and harbourage, in business they will invade soft drinks areas, spillages and food stores. They will nest almost anywhere and whilst the flying ants emerge and swarm in the summer we are finding ants active throughout the year due to the climate and central heating. Although many people will try a DIY product there is an art to the application which must be thorough and an understanding of the insects behaviour is needed. Professional gels and banding insecticidal sprays are used to treat the nest and to create a barrier.
Wasps can be social and build nests together or solitary and lay a single egg in a crack or crevice. At their peak a social wasps nest can contain 6 to 10 thousand wasps which tend to be more aggressive toward the end of the year when the workers die off. Wasp stings are painful and can be dangerous. Their presence will spoil the pleasure of drinks on the patio and food from the barbeque, they also come into the premises looking for sweet treats.
Pestokill can treat the nest or supply wasp traps to draw foraging wasps away from a business critical area.
Bees may be solitary or may live in various types of communities, there are many varieties many of which do not sting or cause any harm. If they are causing harm and a risk to human health we can relocate or remove them.
Control is a necessity for these nuisance pests!
