Pest Control for Rats

These products are often ineffective and are of a poorer quality that those used by professional pest controllers. Pestaway Solutions provides an effective solution to control your rat problem with advice to prevent any rat infestation recurring.
Mice thrive in a variety of conditions and they can inflict a lot of damage to your household furniture and clothes, contaminate your food and even cause electrical fires. Mice carry a host of different parasites and they can transmit diseases such as Salmonella and Typhus to humans.
Common signs of a mouse problem:
Mice make a distinctive noise when they are scurrying around. You are most likely to hear them scratching in walls and the ceiling. Along with the noise, they will also leave droppings as they go about their business of destroying your home. These are small and dark and a definite sign of a mice infestation. There may also be a strong musky smell in your home which is caused by the urine of the mice. This is strongest in enclosed places where they nest and breed.
If you see any of these signs; you need to call in a professional pest control company right away.
- Mice – Mouse infestations can take hold of your home in no time at all so it is important to deal with the problem as soon as you become aware of it. This way you can protect your health and home.
How to eradicate a mouse infestation:
The highly trained technicians will also be able to give you valuable advice on how to stop these pests from re-entering your home.
While there are many DIY products on the market, these may capture or kill a few of the mice, but they can never deal with the problem holistically. Mice are prolific breeders so catching or killing a few of them will not make a huge difference to the infestation. Frankly, the partly effective DIY methods are only going to delay the effective treatment of the infestation, giving the mice more time to breed. Hence, calling out a pest control company such as Pestaway Solutions timeously is extremely important.
Getting rid of mice is a special form of pest control and can only be done effectively by trained, experienced pest control specialists. Pestaway Solutions technicians will find out where the mice are hiding and breeding and how they are getting into your home. From this information they will tailor make a mice control treatment plan for you.
Pestaway Solutions specialists are trained and experienced in detecting mice and removing them quickly and effectively. Eradicating all activity and keeping your family safe from potential hazards is what Pestaway Solutions can do for you.
Bed bugs infestations
- Adults are reddish-brown, oval, flattened 6 to 9 mm long and 1.5 to 3 mm wide before feeding. Engorged adults are swollen and dull red.
The white oval egg is about 1 mm long.
Although humans are the preferred host, bed bugs feed on many warm-blooded animals. Animal hosts include poultry, rats, mice, dogs, cats, pigeons, canaries, rabbits and guinea pigs.
- After hatching the bed bug goes through five nymphal stages that resemble the adult, though they are smaller in size. A newly hatched nymph is almost colourless. Engorged nymphs are reddish and swollen. Wild animals, including bats, swallows and house martins may also serve as hosts and may be responsible for causing infestations in or around buildings.
- Bed bugs usually hide in cracks or mattresses during the day and emerge at night to feed. They inject saliva as they feed. An allergic reaction to the saliva often causes slightly delayed swelling, itching, and burning which may persist for a week or more.
- Female Bed bugs lay eggs throughout their life. Each female can produce around 400 – 500 eggs during her lifetime.
- The eggs are deposited all around the environment in which the Bed bug is living.
At temperatures above 21°C (70°F), eggs hatch in 6 to 17 days. At lower temperatures, hatching may take as long as 28 days.
- The eggs are deposited all around the environment in which the Bed bug is living.
Bed Bug Facts
- They are not known to be disease carriers.
- They feed on human blood by stabbing the victim with their hollow mouthparts, injecting an anticoagulant to prevent the blood clotting, and sucking the liquid blood into their gut.
- Infestations are usually detected by the skin irritation caused by bites, usually limited to itching and inflammation.
- They prefer to feed when it is dark and the host is still and asleep.
- Bedbugs can ingest up to 7x their body weight in blood in a single feed.
- Bedbugs can go without feeding for up to 12 months with older bugs surviving longer than young ones They are commonly transported in furniture and luggage.
- They are unable to fly or jump.
Furniture, particularly bedroom furniture must be inspected carefully, even to the point of dismantling the bed for easier inspection and possible treatment.
Check under and behind other pieces of furniture, such as chairs, couches, dressers, etc. It may be necessary to remove the dust covers on the undersides of chairs and couches. Pull drawers out of dressers, inspect them carefully and examine the interior of the dresser.
Remove and inspect objects, such as pictures, mirrors, curtains, etc., that are hung or mounted on walls. Check obvious cracks and crevices along baseboards.
Inspect torn or loose wallpaper and decorative borders.
Check clothing and other item stored in areas where bed bugs have been found.
DO NOT REMOVE ANY ITEM FROM ANY ROOM UNLESS IN A SEALED BAGS AS EGGS CAN DROP OFF ITEMS AND START INFESTATIONS IN OTHER AREAS FOR THE PROPERTY
The next step is to treat the possible daytime hiding places of bed bugs. Such applications are best done as a “crack and crevice” treatments to gaps around baseboards and other such items using a broad band residual insecticide through a manual hand sprayer.
To prevent bedbug infestations
- Inspect all used furniture, especially beds and travel luggage before bringing them into the house.
- Eliminate potential harbourages.
To eliminate an existing infestation
- The treatment of infestations are notoriously difficult and requires the following to be prepared on the day of treatment
- The programme should include the following: before treatment can start
- A thorough inspection of the infested property.
- Confirmation of the presence of bedbugs.
- remove all bedding in order to Treat mattress and and bed frame and soft furnishing within the room. do not carry bedding out of the room before placing in sealed bags to take to washing machine
- A residual insecticide Will be sprayed in all cracks and crevices.
The implementation of regular laundering of bedding and the frequent vacuuming of carpets. The used vacuum cleaner bag should be disposed of in a sealed plastic bag when finished.
A wasp’s nest is constructed of chewed wood and plant fibres which are bonded by wasp’s saliva. The wasp’s nest is home to worker wasps, male drones and a single egg-carrying queen. Most wasp nests die off with the drop of temperatures in autumn but some may survive if the weather conditions are favourable and the nest is located on a dry place close to a food source.
You should never try to remove a wasp nest by yourself—unless the size of a walnut. Not only will you put yourself at risk but your whole neighbourhood as well.
You will find ants nests in dry earth around plant roots, with sandy soil in particular attracting colonies. The sand used in house foundations, garden paths and patios forms a good site for the queen ant to start a colony. Ant nests are increasingly being found inside the walls of properties (cavity walls, for example). Once a colony develops it can be difficult to get rid of Ants.
Why do ants come indoors?
Ants found indoors are usually are worker ants, which are foraging for food for the queen and the grubs. They have found that buildings inhabited by humans are a good source of provision, particularly sweet or sugary items
Do black ants just live on human food?
No, the worker ants are scavengers and collect seeds, nectar, even dead insects to take back to the nest. They also prey on greenfly, blackfly and other small insects, so cannot be considered to be all bad.
Do black ants do any harm?
Although it is unpleasant and a nuisance to find a large number of them in your home, black ants do not transmit any serious diseases.
However, you should remember as well that the ants may have travelled through unpleasant or dirty places during their foraging and before entering your home. This means that they can taint any food, making it unsuitable to eat.
Do not leave food uncovered if accessible to ants, but if they have contaminated food, dispose of in the dustbin (wrapped first to prevent it smelling in the warmer weather).
How do I get rid of Ants?
- The cheapest, but not necessarily most successful, way of dealing with an ants’ nest is to pour boiling water onto the nest. This will certainly control the problem, but may only be a temporary solution.
- Another way of eliminating ants’ nests is to buy a household insecticide which you should apply on and around the nest, together with possible entry points for the ants. Entry points would include doors, windows, cracks in walls, even waste pipes. Remember, for your own safety, to follow the manufacturers’ instructions on the pack. This again may only be a short term answer, firstly because of the low dosages allowed in domestic insecticides. Secondly, there can be so many ants in one nest that it is difficult to eradicate the whole colony in one go, so the problem may recur.
Both the methods described above are worth a try, but if you still find you have an ant infestation call Pestaway Solutions for more information on our ant treatment service.
Cat fleas are responsible for many flea infestations, the remainder being attributable to a variety of bird and animal species. Wall-to-wall carpeting also provides a relatively undisturbed environment for flea larvae to develop, whilst the spread of central heating has served to ensure ideal temperature conditions.
Fleas can be carriers of disease or may transmit parasitic worms. The most serious infection which they can spread is bubonic plague, transmitted to man by rodent fleas (Xenopsylla cheopis) which carry the causative bacillus from infected rats. In the past rodent fleas have been responsible for serious epidemics of the disease, notably the Black Death in Europe and Asia in the 14th to 17th centuries. Rodent fleas may also carry murine typhus and, because of their readiness to attack humans as well as rats, are probably the major flea carrier of disease. The dog flea is an intermediate host of the dog tapeworm , whose vertebrate host is usually the dog (occasionally the cat) but which can sometimes be transmitted to man.
Flea bites are identified as a tiny dark red spot surrounded by a reddened area. The bite persists for one or two days and is intensely irritating. First bites are not generally liable to cause serious reactions, but they may lead to hypersensitivity. Reactions are usually delayed following regular biting over a long period; there will then follow a period when reactions are immediate.
Treatment & Control
Insecticides can be used to treat infested premises and protect them from reinfestation. In addition, hosts can be treated directly, or rodenticides employed.
Where rats and mice have been identified as the primary hosts in flea infestations, rodenticides can be used to control them and, indirectly, the fleas.
This species is a serious pest in Britain. It is a threat to forestry land where its habit of removing tree bark is extremely damaging. In towns and cities, it can be a considerable pest by casing damage to structures and electrics in roof spaces. The squirrel may use roof insulation for nesting material and may chew boxes and other items stored in the roof space.
In some instances they have been known to chew electric cables and roof joints causing a potentially dangerous situation as well as the problem of noise.
If squirrels are using a roof space for a nest (drey), often the first reaction to the problem by occupant may be to destroy them. This may not be the most successful solution to the problem.
Before carrying out any works to prevent access to the roof space, it is essential that a thorough check is made to ensure that there are no young present in the nest. Keeping the adult squirrel from their young will result in death for the young and substantial damage to the property where the mother tries to reach her young.
Treatment & Control
Birmingham Pest Control Service always use traps in accordance with statutory guidelines and trapped animals are disposed of humanely.
As squirrels can cause massive property damage, Birmingham Pest Control Service will also provide advice and assistance to squirrel-proof your premises to avoid recurrence of the problem.
