Flea treatment Tunbridge Wells

Why suffer with flea bites when you can call in the professionals. We were called out to treat a property in Tunbridge Wells today where the occupants had been suffering considerable discomfort with flea bites for a while.  They had tried to control the fleas themselves which had been unsuccessful.  The fleas had been brought into the house by a friends pet dog and the heatwave had created the ideal breeding conditions for fleas and they had spread throughout the house.

When the technician arrived at the house he encountered fleas jumping onto his overalls as soon as he entered the front door. We carried out a comprehensive insecticidal spray treatment in all rooms of the house and to all floors, carpets, skirting boards. soft furnishings, applying the spray into cracks and crevices where the flea eggs and larvae dwell.  We advised that a customer may need to have a second treatment, the eggs, larvae and pupae stages of a flea remain in the carpets and the flea can remain as a pupae stage for up to 5 months, an adult fleas can survive for up to 3 months.

Pigeon Netting Tunbridge Wells

Had an interesting few day work fitting pigeon netting and anti-perching spikes at school in Tunbridge Wells who asked us to help them with thier pigeon problem.  A flock of feral pigeons had taken up residence and were roosting on their fire escapes causing a serious health hazard by fouling on the schools fire escapes.  Pigeons can carry a number of diseases including Salmonella, tuberculosis, ornithosis and psittacosis and their droppings can cause respiratory ailments and can damage buidlings and are a serious slip hazard.

We cleaned up the pigeon guano applied a biocide to contaminated surfaces we fitted anti-perching spikes to all potential perching and roosting areas and fitted netting underneath the fire escape to prevent further problems.

Rats Tunbridge Wells

We received a call today from a lady in Tunbridge Wells where rats were being seen in a back garden. The rats had been climbing the bird table and feeding on the bird food.  We recommended putting the bird food in a rat and squirrel proof bird feeder and advised the customer to avoid leaving any food accessible and available for the rats.  The rats were found living under the garden shed and traps were concealed in tamper proof boxes around the shed.  In garden situations to help protect wildlife it is advisable to avoid using rodenticide baits and we used rat traps in tamper resistant boxes to avoid any risk to wildlife.

Rats come in from the cold

We carried out a rat control treatment in Tunbridge Wells today where rats were reported scampering around a school playground.  We found rats burrowing under a fence to reach the waste bins; they were found to be living in an outside gas cupboard. A number of Traps were laid around the School and we will be returning to do follow up visits. The cold weather has caused our furry friends to move indoors.

Drain Flies Tunbridge Wells 

We received an interesting call today a School in Tunbridge Wells which was suffering with an infestation of small flies.  The flies were identified as Phorid flies (also known as drain flies). These small flies thrive in blocked drains and areas which remain damp for a long period of time where they will breed rapidly causing infestations. The flies will follow air flow and sources of light.  Our technician found a large number of flies in the school plant room around the overflow pipes and drains and from there the flies were turning up in the school offices and library where they were becoming a serious annoyance.  The best way to deal with these flies is by eliminating the breeding sites and a treatment report was completed with recommendations.
