Some insects carry large amounts of diseases that affect humans and animals. It is important to gain control of activity quickly as damage to goods, compensations, litigation and loss of trade are a financial loss. The presence of insects on commercial properties and damaged goods can also have an impact on reputation.

Cockroaches

Cockroach Pest Control

Cockroaches are attracted to all food within your home. Their diet varies from foods, papers, packaging and fabrics to animal matter. The most common types of cockroach within the UK are the German Cockroach – this type of cockroach requires warmth and humidity to survive. They are likely to harbour in the kitchen within the oven, under appliances, within the motor of the fridge and around the boiler. The Oriental Cockroach can also be prevalent – this type of cockroach can cope with cooler damp conditions and are commonly found within drains.

Cockroaches are nocturnal therefore you are likely to see signs of their presence before the cockroach itself. These signs include shed skins, cockroach ootheca (eggs), faecal pellets, smear marks or an unusual odour.

If you suspect you have cockroaches, Total Pest Control has the solution for you.

Ants

Ant Pest Control

Garden ants do not carry diseases however they can become a real nuisance in your home or business. You can eliminate ants yourself by watching carefully to see where they are coming in from and seal off their entry point. Make sure good housekeeping is maintained cleaning up and sticky residues as most ants are attracted to sweet things. Also securely seal any food which could be a source for the ants.

If you are still experiencing problems Total Pest Control would be happy to carry out a full treatment. This treatment will consist of internal ant baiting and external insecticidal spray around the perimeter of your home or business. Ant nests will be located and treated.

Please note it is important to identify the species of ant because treatments can vary between species. For example Pharaoh Ants require specialist baiting as spraying for these insects cause the nests to spread due to the colonies having multiple queens. Please ask for more details if you suspect you have Pharaoh ants.
