How to Keep Pigeons and Starlings Away From Your Home?

Avon, UK - October 22, 2017- Avon Pest Control is an industry leader in pest control services.

From wasps to bees and ants to bedbugs and rodents, we specialize in tackling infestations of all kinds of residential and commercial pest in properties across Yorkshire.

With extensive industry experience, the company continues to receive stellar industry ratings and customer reviews.

While Avon Pest Control can truly rid your home of all pests and critters, we also offer safe and efficient pest disposal services for Starlings and Pigeons.

Starlings and Pigeons are some of the most tenacious birds, our Starling and Pigeons removal and disposal services are leading in South-Yorkshire, and many homeowners do not want these birds in their back yards. This is because they are noisy, they leave droppings that can lead to property damage and they are also aggressive - they kill other birds without hesitation. Even worse, these birds are aggressive breeders - what was just a few starlings can turn into a flock in a few months, and once they find a habitat it is very hard to make them leave. There are, however, certain things that you can do to keep them away.

The first is your choice of bird feeders. If you like to feed birds you may also be attracting Starlings and Pigeons but there are feeders that are built specifically to keep them away. You will find that tube feeders with small perches or mesh and domed feeders are not attractive for Starlings. They are also not very good upside-down feeders so you can try that too.

There are certain foods that Starlings are very fond of and if you can avoid throwing those in your back yard you will keep Starlings and Pigeons away. If you are in the habit of throwing food scraps in your back yard it will not be long before you see these birds flocking there. Make sure that all food remains go in the food disposal or the rubbish bin.  Keep the bin covered to restrict access. Starlings also like cracked corn so avoid having that in your backyard as well. There are certain seeds that they don't like but which are perfectly acceptable to other bird species - try leaving out Nyjer, Safflower seeds, nectar and whole peanuts. Other species will be happy to feed on these but not Starlings and Pigeons.

Fruit trees can also attract Starlings especially when the fruit is ripe or falls to the ground. If you have fruit trees in your back yard you should cover them with thin netting to keep these birds away. If fruit falls to the ground it should be collected as soon as possible and discarded in the right manner. Keep pet food indoors - these active birds love it and you may soon find them flocking to your back yard.

Pruning also helps as it gets rid of places where they can roost comfortably - Starlings and Pigeons like thick foliage so if you thin trees they are less likely to come.

Avon Pest Control services can truly rid your home or business of all pests and critters, we also offer safe and efficient pest control and disposal services for for most common pests in homes and businesses across our own local area.  

Below are a few FAQ's we often have to answer.  

Question 1 - I have noticed large bees on my patio and every time I sit there one or two threaten to sting. I have looked around and cannot find a hive. Where are they coming from and what can I do to get rid of them?
Answer: This is not an uncommon problem - often homeowners will notice bees but cannot located their source. It is likely that the hive is in a tucked away location on your property, possibly hidden somewhere between boards. They reason they are threatening to sting is that the hive has been disturbed by something, possibly a rodent that enjoys honey. It is not a good idea to go after them yourself as you don't know how big the hive is. It is best to call in a professional pest control company.

Question 2 - I only just noticed that I have an infestation of bed bugs in my home - we wake up with itchy bumps and I have seen some crawling around on furniture. I have been told that there are very effective insecticides in the US but it is not approved here. How can I get it?

Answer: The truth is that while there are many insecticides that can kill bed bugs, it is hardly recommended that you try and do it yourself. Some of these pesticides are dangerous especially for children and pets. In addition to that, bedbugs lay eggs in the tiniest spaces and you may not be able to get to those. You should hire a professional exterminator since they have the right equipment and they also have chemicals that are effective without being dangerous.

Question 3 - I have tried everything but I still find that ants are attracted to my kitchen in summer. What can I do?
Answer: Stop leaving scraps of food around. Different pesticides work for different kinds of ants so the best thing to do is call in a professional. Also, it is likely that there is a nest underneath your home - the exterminators will find it and get rid of it.

Question 4 - Pigeons have made my roof their home. How can I get rid of them?
Answer: Pigeons are a common and sticky problem. Unfortunately once they take residence it is hard to get rid of them. Professional pigeon exterminators can get the job done.

Question 5 - I have mice in my attic and they seem to be multiplying. What should I do?
Answer: Make sure to call professional exterminators right away as mice numbers multiply fast.

How to Assess If You Have a Bedbug Infestation?

Did you know that in more than 50% of homes that have bedbugs infestations the owners have no idea they are present?

Bedbug infestations have become commonplace and you can carry them home from anywhere. You can get them on your clothes in a bus, from a hospital seat or bed, in a hotel room - in short, so long as it is a highly trafficked area there is a chance that it has bedbugs.

As a homeowner you should be concerned because these bedbugs multiply very fast and before you know it you will have a bedbug infestation on your hands. There are certain signs that tell you that you have bedbugs in the home. Keep in mind that these bedbugs don't just thrive in beds - they can also be found in the nooks and crannies of furniture and even in the creases of your sofa.

Here is what you should look out for:

  • The most obvious is bedbug bites. These are small, itchy bumps that you will notice in the morning. This is because bedbugs feed at night. The bumps may be scattered or in a row and they can be on any part the body that is exposed during sleep.
  • Many people assume that one sign of bedbugs is blood on bed sheets and clothing - after all they are blood suckers. This is not true! bedbug stains are actually dark brown or black because the blood is already digested. If you notice more than a few such stains there is a good chance that you have a bedbug infestation.
  • You may also find their exoskeletons or shells on bedding and in clothing as well as dark fecal matter on bed sheets. The exoskeletons are clear in color as the bedbugs shed them as they grow bigger.
  • Lastly, you will know that you have a bedbug infestation if you see them crawling around. When their numbers swell they are forced to crawl around during the day and you may be able to spot a few of them.
The important thing to do if you find bedbugs or suspect that you have them is to call in a professional exterminator.

There are insecticides that are available commercially but the problem with dealing with a bedbug infestation yourself is that you may not get to all of them, and you will find tackling the eggs even harder.

A professional knows where to find them and he has the tools and chemicals to get rid of them safely and for good.

Bed bugs in the Healthcare sector: A serious problem!

If you own a healthcare facility or are in charge of running one there is something that you must always be on the lookout for - bed bugs.

These tiny bed bugs multiply very fast and once they do they are very hard to get rid of.

Worse yet, they hide in the smallest nooks and crannies and don't come out to feed until night time.

They bite and leave red, itchy bumps that will make your patients very uncomfortable - some may even seek treatment elsewhere.

Worse yet, they will carry them back home and start new infestations there.

So how do you make sure that you don't get bed bugs in the first place?
  • Make sure that your employees are well trained on how to identify bed bugs and bed bug bites. There should be a procedure in place that is known to all on what to do when bed bugs are spotted.
  • Housekeeping should be trained on how to look for bed bugs in laundry and in furniture. They should know how to spot fecal and blood spots, cast skins, eggs, and the various body parts the bed bugs leave behind.
  • All laundry, including bed sheets, should be labeled according to department and then floor and room. This way in case bed bugs are spotted in laundry the source of the infestation can be tracked down and dealt with.
  • You should schedule inspections at least 4 times a year when everything is checked for bed bugs - beds, bed sheets, bed frames, bed headboards, wheelchairs and medical equipment that patients come into contact with.
  • Medical staff should know how to identify bed bug bites on new patients so that the right procedures can be followed during admissions. This way the hospital will avoid getting bed bugs from patients. Part of the discharge process for such patients should include a talk about bed bugs and what they should do when they get home to kill the infestation.
  • If a hospital employees notices bed bugs on a mattress they should immediately cover it with a plastic sheet so as to stop the infestation from spreading.
When it comes to bed bugs the best thing to do is make sure that you don't get them in the first place but what happens if you do?

You should immediately call professional exterminators like Avon Pest Control.

They have the equipment, staff and skills set necessary to get rid of most vermin infestations.

How to Deal With Wasps and Bees in Your Home?

The number of bees and wasps in the UK is slowly rising.

In the past, the cold winters killed them off and they were only able to thrive in the summer but warmer winters means they are able to reproduce almost all year round.

Do not be surprised, therefore, if you see them around your home. If you do you have to act fast - bees and wasps can form colonies in a short time and cause problems in the home.

Not only do they leave painful stings on people and pets, they can lead to property damage.

There are several things that you can do to keep them from multiplying:
  • The best thing that you can do is to prevent them from coming into your home in the first place. Find anything that they may be attracted to and get rid of it such as left over food. Make sure to leave food covered at all times and wipe away any spillages. Keep your kitchen clean - dirty kitchens are a haven especially for bees.
  • Peppermint is a great way to repel both bees and wasps. If you notice them in certain parts of your home you can dip pieces of cotton wool in peppermint oil and leave them in these places.
  • There are some oil blends that are marketed as repelling bees and wasps. You can try these and find out whether they are effective.
  • You can get rid of nests using soap and water. Just fill a spray bottle and when the wasps and bees leave spray the nest. Any eggs inside will die and the nest will fall to the ground. The bees and wasps will likely move to another nest somewhere else.
If you have a big infestation you should not try to get rid of it yourself - you may get seriously stung.
