Domestic Pest Control Glasgow
Pests are always on the lookout for suitable places to settle and feed. Our homes are ideal for this purpose because they are warm, protected from the elements, and food is plentiful. There are a number of steps you can take to defend your property, but with the sheer number of pests around it is easier in theory than in practice.
Fortunately, our locally-based domestic pest control Glasgow technicians are ready to offer a rapid response to your pest problem. To arrange for a home visit from a member of our team, call us today on 0141 471 9255.
Rats and mice are by far the biggest offenders when it comes domestic infestations in the United Kingdom, although squirrels can also be an issue.
Perhaps the most pressing issue is their ability to spread disease. When rats and mice are looking for food or water, they will leave droppings and urine behind. This will contaminate food and water sources with contagions which can subsequently be consumed by human beings.
Another risk comes in the form of rat and mouse carcasses. Our domestic pest control Glasgow team often find examples in crawlspaces and under floors which will lead to an awful smell, contagions, and infestations of other animals which will consume the rodent such as dermestes beetles or cockroaches.
Using their large and sturdy incisors, rodents will also cause significant damage around your home. Mice and rats will often tear apart fabrics for nesting material or will merely chew their way inside furniture. They also chew on electrical wires which can break equipment and present a severe fire risk, causing hundreds of fires every year in the UK.
There is very little you can do to stop insects entering your home in the first place due to their minuscule size, yet any infestations which follow can be dealt with quickly by our domestic pest control Glasgow technicians:
Wasps: The problems which wasps present to humans are obvious. When a nest is established on your property, or nearby, stings are a constant threat. The result can vary from mild pain to a critical allergic reaction which can even lead to death.
We can visit your property within a matter of hours and remove it from your home.
Cockroaches: These insects are hardy survivors, and it is an uphill battle to deal with them with our professional assistance. Our domestic pest control Glasgow team will use their tried and tested techniques and products to exterminate every last member of the infestation, ensuring that the problem will be dealt with conclusively.
Biting Insects: Although the majority of insects are only concerned with the food stored around your home, many rely on us for sustenance. Bed bugs and fleas are tiny external parasites which feed on the blood of human beings as they pass by or sleep.
When you experience an infestation of this kind, it becomes quickly apparent that there are no DIY methods that will solve your problem. Without the service of our domestic pest control Glasgow team, some may survive and start the infestation anew.
Ants: Ant infestations can come upon a household very quickly as they are highly sociable insects. If one ant finds a suitable food source within your home, you will find that a stream of many hundreds will follow soon after.
Killing ants within your home is not particularly difficult, but without taking care of the queen, they will rapidly replace every fallen worker. Our domestic pest control Glasgow technicians will utilise their training and expertise to locate the nest or apply insecticide which will be carried back to her chamber.
Having birds nest within your home is never good news. Structural problems and the risk of disease will soon follow.
Pigeons will regularly remove loosened tiles in order to access a roof space and will tear apart materials inside such as insulation or textiles to acquire soft and warm nesting materials.
Birds also commonly settle in drain pipes and gutters, which can disrupt the flow of water. This can create overspill, flooding, and various other forms of water damage.
What is often overlooked in regards to birds as a pest is their ability to spread infection to human beings. They produce a lot of guano which contains a number of contagions, and their nesting material will spread similarly dangerous particles when disturbed.
If birds have settled upon your property, get in touch with our domestic pest control Glasgow team as quickly as possible. We will swiftly address the problem and advise on how you can avoid the problem recurring in the future.
Fly species are prolific and fast breeders, which means a distressing pest situation can quickly occur in your home. One or two insects can multiply into the hundreds, and all of them will be exploring your home searching for food to scavenge.
Because flies commonly feed on food which is being stored for human consumption and food which has been discarded in the bin, this leads to significant hygiene problems. Bacteria will commonly attach to the hairs on their legs and spread to fresh food.
Through a combination of trapping equipment as well as potent insecticides, our domestic pest control Glasgow team will deal with every last member of a fly infestation. This is the only way of ensuring that the population cannot be recovered by a few breeding pairs.
