Sneezing and Coughing Spreads Diseases, So Do Mice...

Woman suffering from a cold.

Many Yorkshire residents will do whatever it takes to avoid catching a cold or flu during cold weather - they will dress warmly, stay away from sick people, take their vitamins and so on.

What they forget is that there are other ways to spread diseases - mice and rats.

When temperatures plummet mice, rats and rodents look for shelter for 2 reasons - warmth and food.

It is too cold for them to stay out there, and since food is hard to come by they get into homes for it.

While you are busy protecting yourself from a cold or flu you may have a budding mouse infestation that can lead to diseases in your Warwickshire or Yorkshire home or business.

The important thing is to know the signs of mice, rat and rodent infestation so that you can take steps right away:
    Mouse on kitchen pot trying to find food.
  • You will hear them in the ceiling late at night when all is quiet. They will be scurrying about trying to find their way to a food source.
  • You will see their droppings on the floor, in cupboards and drawers - they are dark brown little pellets.
  • There will be an ammonia smell in the air, much like the smell of urine. If the mice or rat infestation is severe you will notice what are called urine pillars. These are small mounds of fur, grease and urine.
  • You may see grease marks on walls where the mice brush up as they scurry about.
  • You may see the mice themselves, especially when there is food left out in the open.
  • You can test whether you do indeed have mice by sprinkling a thin layer of flour on the floor - in the morning there will be little footprints.
What can you do to prevent mice from getting into your home?

There are several steps that you can take. The first is to make sure that all food is kept away securely - the primary attraction for mice in homes or businesses is food. Make sure that all leftovers are kept in airtight containers in the fridge, and that the kitchen counter tops and floor are completely clean.

In addition to that you should seal all holes where mice and rats can come through.

Inspect your home to make sure that there are no entryways.

What if you find that you already have mice or rats in your home?

The best thing is to call in rat and mice pest control experts from a company like Avon Pest Control.

Their vermin and pest control services are reputable and effective and also affordable.

How to Eradicate Bed Bugs from Your Home or Business Fast

Bed Bug Anatomical drawing.

Bed bugs are one of the most common pests in homes and businesses. They travel easily - they can attach to anything - and once settle in they multiply fast.

To some people bed bugs may not be a big deal but the important thing to keep in mind is that the more their numbers grow the harder it is to sleep at night. Since they are nocturnal feeders they will wait for you to get into bed every night and then come out to bite, leave large red and itchy welts that can keep you awake and also uncomfortable during the day.

Bed Bug written on pillow.It is very important to deal with bed bugs as soon as you notice them in your home. You may see them crawling about in tight spaces or you may see evidence of their existence - they usually leave small, reddish brown stains on bedding or you may see their exoskeletons.

As soon as you notice them you should take action - the fact that you are seeing evidence of their presence means that there are more than a few.

Some people will tell you that so long as bed bug numbers are not overwhelming you can treat them with preparations sold in the shop.

While this may be true there is one problem - you will never know whether you got them all as well as their eggs - one bed bug can lay thousands of eggs at once and since these are hidden in tight, concealed places you can never be sure whether or not you have killed them.

You may spray or dust your home yourself only to have a resurgence of bed bugs a few weeks later resulting from hatching eggs.

The best thing to do is to call in professional bed bugs pest control experts.

7 Common Types of Pests that Infest Christmas Trees

Nothing says Christmas more than a Christmas tree with gifts and presents for one and all. However, did you know that Christmas trees are also havens for many types of insects and breeds? This, of course, mainly pertains to real trees - but pests can also infest artificial ones.

We can inspect, dust, and shake your tree to rid it of these docile - yet annoying pests. If worse comes to worse, we can spray your trees outside - then bring it back in and help you place it in the proper area.

Insect Eggs

Insect eggs can be a nuisance in trees during the holidays. Let us shake your trees down to see if there are any bug eggs still inside. We will dispose of them in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner.

Wasps and Bees

Dangerous wasps and bees are attracted to the leaves within trees. In fact, they can start making nests within these trees if not removed. We can take care of this problem for you with our expert pest control services.


Hornets are dangerous and can truly ruin any holiday party. We will remove these harmful pests from your trees with the latest in direct and aerial sprays.


Yep. Cockroaches can also be in Christmas trees - especially those left outside for sale in the city and suburbs. We will remove these bugs easily!
