The Need for Pest Control

  • To comply with the law, avoiding risk of fines and adverse publicity.
  • To maintain goodwill among staff and customers.
  • To prevent contamination especially within food stocks.
  • To prevent disease from the harmful bacteria pests carry.

Effective Prevention

Ants

In spite of their small size, ants can cause a significant amount of damage to your home and food storage. Ants tunnel through wooden structures and create a path of destruction on their way, they love food and have thousands of hungry accomplices to feed within their colony.

Ants are the most common pests we encounter, our services are very effective, and our methods are successful to ensure the proper treatments are carried out

Bed Bugs

Bed Bug infestations are becoming very common, if left untreated they can cause a huge personal distraction to people lives. In a public environment like hotels and bed and breakfasts, bed bugs need to be dealt with efficiently and very quickly to satisfy staff and keep customer confidence at its peak.

Although humans are the preferred host, bed bugs feed on many warm–blooded animals. Bed bugs usually hide in cracks or mattresses during the day and emerge at night to feed.

Bees

Bee and hive removal is a dangerous task, so we highly recommend you do not agitate or disturb the affected area. Vermin X are experts in dealing with these problems, and we do this on a daily basis. We can safely remove your bee problems with a controlled and professional manner.

Bees are divided into two groups “solitary and Social bees” – The solitary bee consists of males and females. After pairing, the females create tunnels or bore holes to lay their eggs, after this has been completed the bee’s task is now complete and she abandons her offspring to emerge and fend for themselves.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are a major health hazard to both commercial and domestic owners. They can carry a number of different diseases such as salmonella and dysentery. Cockroaches are amongst the most noxious pests, they have lived alongside of humans for hundreds of years. and are regarded as a serious public health pest.

The female Cockroach lays her egg case near to a food source and lays approximately 30 – 40 eggs which hatch within 1 – 2 days. As cockroaches will feed on any food source including filth it is vital that premises be kept spotlessly clean and that food availability be kept to a minimum.

A cockroach infestation is very challenging to effectively eliminate and will possibly require at least two visits to fully treat an infestation.

Fleas

Fleas live on warm blooded animals and feed solely on blood using piercing and sucking techniques to extract the blood from its food source. The female lays four to eight eggs after each blood feed and can lay up to 1,000 eggs in her lifetime.

The cat flea is the primary parasite that infests cats and dogs, their bodies are covered in rear facing spines enabling them to move between the fur of their host. Fleas work on vibration from footsteps, with its powerful back legs it jumps from floor to host. It lives on animals, and in cracks crevices throughout the home.

It is common for empty properties to erupt with masses of fleas upon entry for the first time, this is because fleas can lay dormant for up to 1 year without feeding and awake when people move in.

Mice

It is important to get rid of mice quickly, before they damage pipe cables, insulation or contaminate food. Mice live in burrows, which are often built inside houses, Burrows are built wherever there is access to a good source of food. Spaces under floors and lofts are a favoured places for building burrows, which are built out of cloth, wool and paper that has been collected around the home.

Mice are mainly active at night and can be heard running about as they search for their next meal. Mice can squeeze through cracks as small as 5mm.

The most common mouse found in buildings is the house mouse, their favourite foods are cereal products, although they will eat almost anything. Most of the damage they do is by gnawing and ripping open packets. They also foul food with urine and droppings. Mice will gnaw their way through wood to get to sources of food.

Pigeons

The major rule to solve pigeon problems is “Do not feed them”. Pigeons have become habituated to humans, by being fed by humans, this has only escalated the problem. As a domesticated bird, pigeons are easily tamed and handled, this problem now gets passed along as more people decide to feed them and find it hard to get rid of their new flying pests.

Pigeon removal can be a difficult task, but not impossible. Vermin X can safely remove your pigeon problems and help prevent future roosting problems.

Rats

Rats are dangerous, and carry diseases that can kill humans. Leptospirosis (Weil's Disease) is an infection of worldwide distribution caused by spirochaetes of the genus Leptospira, which infect many species of both wild and domestic animals. Disease is acquired through contact with contaminated water or soil, or through contact with urine or tissues of infected animals.

Rats are extremely high risk pests because of the massive danger and threats they present to public health. A survey will need to be carried out to discover the level of infestation and establish the best treatment for removal.

If you have rat problems, this is a serious health risk and danger – contact us Here
