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.

Experiencing Flea Control Issues at home?

Fleas can very quickly become a big problem in the home - one flea has the potential to lay thousands of eggs at once and they hatch rather quickly.

Many people assume that fleas are limited to pets but this is not true - you will sometimes find fleas in homes where there are no pets.

You should be concerned if you see fleas in your home because they can lead to several problems. If you have a pet, such as a cat or a dog, fleas will bite them relentless and eventually your pet's coat will be irritated and even develop sores.

In humans fleas don't cause serious health problems but they bite especially around the feet and ankles.

So what is the best way to deal with fleas?

You should make sure that they don't get into your home in the first place.

If you have a pet it is important to wash it at least once a month with flea control shampoo. There are many different types in the market that are safe. If you usually take your dog to the park it is very important that your pet doesn't interact with other dogs that you suspect have fleas. If your pet did make sure to wash her as soon as you get home. Cats are harder to wash but you can do it if you know how - there are websites that tell you how you can keep your cat flea-free.

Make sure that you vacuum on a regular basis. Go for the hidden places - fleas hardly every come out in the open. Get your vacuum cleaner between cushions, under mattresses and in wood joints. Vacuuming is not enough - fleas are very hard to kill so the best thing to do immediately after you vacuum is to take out the bag and dispose of it outside.

Sometimes, however, you can do these things and still find yourself with an increasing number of fleas in the home.

If this happens it is time to call in a professional exterminator. They have the necessary chemicals and equipment to make sure that they get rid of all fleas as well as their eggs.

One of the best pest control services in your area is offered by Avon Pest Control.

They are very effective at getting rid of all sorts of infestations in your home and or business including fleas.

They work fast and they don't use chemicals that are harmful to humans or pets.

What Do Mice Like To Eat? How to Keep Them Out of your Home?

Mice infestations are not uncommon in Yorkshire homes especially as we near the winter months. As it gets colder and colder they look for warm places to hide and they may end up in your home.

What was just a few mice can become dozens in just a few weeks - they reproduce very fast.

You will end up with lots of property damage and they may even cause illness.

The best thing to do is to avoid getting mice into your home.

Make sure that there is nothing for them to eat - if they starve they will seek somewhere else to live.

But what do mice like to eat?

Unfortunately, they are not fussy eaters. Mice will eat lots of things.

Many people assume that they like cheese when in fact many of them will eat it as a last resort or not at all.

Mice like to eat fruit, vegetables, grains and seeds, all kinds of protein and other insects. If you leave any of these things lying about they will come out in the night to feed and then go back to their nests and reproduce. Make sure that all food is kept away after meals and clean the kitchen floor and counters of all scraps.Make sure that your garbage is securely covered and that your larder is properly closed.

If, however, you hear noises in the night or see mice droppings it is important that you take action right away. Mice traps can work if you only have a few mice in the home.

How-to erradicate hornet nests from your home?

Hornets live communally, and they make their nests by chewing wood to make a paper pulp. The nests should be treated and most preferably removed for they can be quite hazardous.

The first step in eradicating a hornet nest is detecting the location of the nest.

Most Hornets build their nests on trees and shrubs while others make their nests underground.

The Hornets get drawn to vegetable gardens and still water. You can detect the presence of the Hornets by their movements in groups. Once you see the Hornets, follow their trail for a while as they fly and you will be able to locate the hornet nest.

Other than that, you can check around the roof and areas where cables enter buildings.

After detecting the location of the nest, the second step is eradicating the hornet nest.

Some people are bold enough to remove the hornet nests on their own. One should be very careful while getting rid of the hornet nests.

The best time to take down the nest is at night.

Pigeon and starling pest problems debunked!

Pigeons and starlings may be cute to look at while in flight.

However, these birds carry infectious diseases and are known for spreading germs.

In Yorkshire, there are thousands of pigeons that have made government, residential and commercial buildings their homes.

Pigeons and starlings love to build nests in high areas -which allow them to breed and procreate at alarming rates.

While they do not possess an attack-based threat like rats and mice, these pets need to be contained or infestation will occur.

At Avon Pest Control, we offer the best techniques and solutions to deal with pigeon or starling infestation problems.

Avon Pigeon and Starlings Control Services

In Yorkshire, pigeons are called rats with wings - due to the many infectious diseases they carry.

This includes 'Chiamdiosis', a virus similar to influenza, and 'Psittacosis', similar to pneumonia.

Believe it or not, pigeons can spread these diseases with their droppings and feathers - but especially by congregating in large numbers.

According to recent statistics, the pigeon problem in the UK is an incredible mess to say the least.

In fact, it costs up to £15 million to clean up pigeon droppings and deposits across the nation.

With this in mind, Avon Pest Control offers the following techniques to rid any residential, business or even city government property of pigeons and starlings:

•    Large nets that trap pigeons - and their young - for immediate and safe removal. These birds are handed over to local animal control shelters.

•    Blocking off entrance - exit routes that pigeons love to fly in and out of.

•    Using pesticides - which may be harsh - but necessary in removing entire pigeon and starling colonies. However, we do our best to salvage and protect all birds and their young during the process.

•    Immediate removal of pigeons from attics, home shingles, rafters, basements, and crawlspaces. We temporarily open up exit routes so they can fly away.

•    In the case of mass pigeon infestation - which can attract other dangerous birds of prey - we utilize pesticides and bait traps to remove these birds from your home or office buildings.

The Avon Pest Control Experience

Avon Pest Control is committed to protecting the environment.

However, there are times when even the most beautiful birds can cause havoc and damages in homes and businesses.

We carefully try to eliminate birds in a safe and friendly manner.

However, there are times when we have to take more aggressive actions - especially when it comes to birds with dangerous diseases and germs.

According to DIY experts, here are a few ways to try and prevent an ant infestation in your home and or business:

•    Ant sprays - these commercial sprays may or may not work on all ant breeds. Still, you can try spraying your outdoor and indoor areas to thwart off ants from entering.

•    Ant poison - these are not guaranteed to stop ants from breeding or entering your properties. There are many brands to choose from so conduct adequate research before purchasing them.

•    Boric acid - this is a traditional method used to tackle bug, ant and insect infestation.
Try spreading Boric acid on areas where ants may enter your home or business; garage, basement, attic, and outside the front door or side doors.

•    Use containers - ants love to feed on crumbs and food particles, which they take back to their Queen and young.  We recommend using containers so even the smallest ant cannot penetrate and feed on your food and snacks.

•    Dispose of trash quickly - ants also love to feed on garbage and rubbish.
We recommend disposing of your trash as quickly as possible.
In fact, keep trash cans and bins as far away from your home entrances as possible.

However, only the experts at Avon Pest Control have the best formulas to prevent a flea infestation in any residential or commercial property.

Grooming Domesticated Pets

Keeping your pets well groomed is another great way to prevent fleas and ticks. In fact, local animal grooming centers utilize certain medicines, which help prevent fleas from biting and procreating on your dog or cat. This also includes special shampoos and conditioners, which helps keep pet coats clean and healthy. Similarly, there are anti-flea and anti-tick shampoos available for rugs and carpets as well. You can also use aerial commercial pesticide sprays, which see fleas and ticks fall off in great numbers. However, only Avon Pest Control has a line of the best anti-flea and anti-tick products - and you should always contact us if any of these DIY or self-serve items do not meet your immediate or long-term needs.

Temperatures rising, wasp nests threatening your home?

Dealing with wasp nests requires professional pest control experts. At Avon Pest Control, we have the tools and expertise to safely remove wasp nets from Yorkshire homes and businesses.

With years of extensive industry experience, we continue to receive great industry and customer reviews. This gives us the incentive to go above and beyond the call of duty to meet all client needs.

With temperatures soaring across Yorkshire and the UK, wasp nests will become a common sighting for many homes and businesses. You should never attempt to remove these wasps on your own; this can lead to wasp swarms and stings. Instead, simply contact Avon Pest Control and we will take care of these pests for you.

Wasp Nests - What to Know

Wasps tend to build their nests in high places. This includes garage ceilings, along with the exteriors of home or business entrances. These nests are essentially made up of water and mud with small holes. The latter is used for entry and exit, as well as protecting the young from potential predators. However, wasps can strike at anytime - especially if they feel danger around the corner. Avon Pest Control removes wasps with aerial pesticides and insecticides. These formulas eliminate wasps within nests - causing them to fall on the ground. Once your Avon Pest Control specialist deems it safe, he or she will then remove the nests with long poles and other equipment.

The Avon Pest Control Experience

Avon Pest Control is a seasoned and reputable company that is committed to excellence in all services. From wasps and hornets to yellow jackets and bees, we have the tools and experience to eliminate these pests from your home or office. We also offer complimentary consultations, along with free service estimates and quotes. With temperatures soaring across many areas in the UK, wasp alerts and activities are at a high level. This can pose a real threat for all families and domesticated pets in and around Yorkshire. With this in mind, you need the professionals from Avon Pest Control to take care of these critters and prevent them from returning again.

If your home or business is experiencing wasp or other insect infestation, Avon Pest Control can take care of the problem within time and budget. We work diligently to protect all susceptible areas of your property, while spraying all interior and exteriors for other pests and rodents as well.

Are Bedbugs Becoming More Resistant To Pesticides? What Can I Do?


Bedbugs in the home can be a big problem. In fact, they tend to go unnoticed for a long time because they are by nature elusive. They are more commonly found in hotels and other social places so if you see bedbugs in your home you should think back to the last time you spent the night away from home - that is probably where you got them from. Bedbugs hide in the darkest corners of your home - you will find them in the nooks and crannies of beds and other furniture and they only come out to feed at night. They leave nasty itchy bumps and if you don't deal with them right away they can soon become an infestation.

The reason why bedbug populations in homes skyrocket is because homeowners usually attempt to deal with infestations using local pesticides. Unfortunately, bedbugs are becoming increasingly resistant to these - you may kill a few of them this way but the majority of them will live on. Take into account the fact that they lay thousands of eggs and you will see how sooner or later your home will be run over. Since they can survive for 3 or 4 days without food their populations thrive even more.

Does this mean that it is impossible to kill bedbugs in the home? Not quite. You can deal with a bedbug infestation by calling in professional pest exterminators. They usually have stronger chemicals than the ones that are available in supermarkets that kill both the bedbugs and their eggs.

They also have equipment that will reach into all the dark corners of furniture where the bugs hide and get rid of all of them. Better yet they will make sure that you don't get an infestation again for a long time.

One such company is Avon Pest Control. They have offices in Leamington Spa and Stratford-Upon-Avon and they serve homes in Leamington Spa, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Kenilworth, Warwick, Coventry & surrounding areas. They have the very latest in extermination equipment and they use chemicals that eradicate bedbugs for a long time.

They are also very discreet - your neighbors will not know that you are having an extermination done. You can rely on them to be professional and courteous and they work fast so to make your home infestation free.

The black garden ant season is only a few weeks away, are you ready?

With summer just around the corner black garden ants pests will soon be with us. These are the ants that swarm homes and gardens all over England in the warm months. Black garden ants, like any other ants, build nests underground and their numbers usually multiply in summer because that is when they mate, lay eggs that hatch into larvae and then mature into adults. In nature these ants feed on nectar - the sweet stuff that is produced by flowers, but when their numbers increase, like they do in summer, there isn't enough to feed the colony, and so they look for alternative food sources.

The first place they will head into is your kitchen, looking for anything sweet that may have been left out in the open. It can be some spilt juice, a spot of jam, uncovered sugar or even bits of cake. It takes one ant to make the discovery. As soon as it does it has its fill and then heads back to the nest to "tell" the others. It will leave a pheromone trail so that it can find its way back to the food source with its colony-mates, and soon they will all be in your kitchen looking for food everywhere.

That is not the only problem with black garden ants. When they decide to form their colonies in the foundation of your home they will eat through the concrete literally turning it into sand. This expands cracks on the floor and if they ants are not dealt with over time you will eventually have property damage.

The problem with black garden ants is that they are extremely hard to get rid of. You can eliminate them from your garden using pesticides but that would probably mean killing the plants as well. In your house, however, you can easily keep them out by creating a barrier.

A professional extermination company can do this for you. They will spray a mild chemical all around the home that will stop the ants from coming in. They will also spray the foundation to make sure that ants do not build a home there.

One company that can do that for you is Avon Pest Control. They do black garden ant extermination in Leamington Spa, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Kenilworth, Warwick, Coventry & surrounding areas. You can find out more on their website,

Are you fearing the posion-resistant rats and mice in your home or business?

Yorkshire County is synonymous with fine residential and business establishments. In fact, there are plenty of new properties that accentuate vintage and historic homes and stores across the region.

As beautiful as Yorkshire is - the county is not exempt from rats and mice infestation. Remember, the area is also home to several parks, trees and wooded areas; all breeding grounds for rats and mice.

These vermin, of course, find their way into local homes and businesses through all types of openings. They also love to feed on crumbs, as well as open containers of food. As your premier pest control specialists, Avon Pest Control has the tools and expertise to safely and efficiently remove these critters from your properties.

Poison- Resistant Rats - What to Do?

Rats and mice are now becoming poison resistant across the world. In fact, this growing phenomenon is not just relegated to England or Europe. So many studies have been pouring in on how vermin have adapted to certain poisons and pesticides - to the point where these countermeasures do not affect them anymore.

According to leading researchers, their resistance stems from - already existing - infectious diseases within their bodies and cells. Rats and mice are now able to survive despite bait traps, sticky pads, and other pest control measures. So what does this mean for property owners in Yorkshire? Well, Avon Pest Control now features new ways to permanently trap and eliminate rats and mice from your life. Our techniques now include:

•    Stronger pesticides and poisons that are guaranteed to eliminate rats, mice, vermin and their young.

•    Complete elimination of all mice and rodent colonies within a timely, professional, and lasting manner.

•    Spraying your home or business with the latest in anti-rodent repellents, along with the newest pesticides that are more effective in eliminating these nocturnal creatures from your properties.
