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.

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.

You can find out more about Avon Pest Control on their website,

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,

While we specialize in mound and ant removal, there are a few ways to prevent infestation inside or outside your home. These includes:

•    Keeping garbage bags sealed and tight within containers. Leaving bags out on their own can attract ants and other insects - or small animals - due to presence of food and rubbish.
•    Make sure to seal all your containers inside your home or business. Again, ants are always on the prowl for open containers with foods or crumbs, which they bring back to their young and colonies.
•    Work with your landscaper or gardener to spray your gardens, yards, and lawns with generic pesticides. While this can secure temporary relief - only we at Avon Pest Control have the right tools, expertise and equipment to completely eradicate ant infestations from your Yorkshire homes and businesses.

Howto Prevent a Black Garden Ant Infestation

Never in your life underestimate small things because small things are not small things for the small. Small things can cause real big problems.

The black garden ant is a nuisance though not a risk to human health. They are completely black in color. Their trails may be seen, but their nests are invisible.

Keep your house clean especially the kitchen and the food tables as ants are mostly attracted to food. Spare food should be properly stored and held in sealed containers. Food should be well covered if not being eaten or if not eaten completely. Also, clear away your pet's food immediately when it has finished eating.

Prevent moisture from building up in your home, especially in wooden furniture and walls to avoid the ants from being attracted. Check for leaks or anything that can cause moisture to penetrate your home and ensure that the spillages are cleaned immediately.

Also, make sure that all the dust or trash bins are tightly sealed or covered. The bins and rubbish pits should be cleared to prevent food from spoiling in them hence attracting ants.

What to do when Black Garden Ants. become a serious problem.

Black garden ants, also known as the common black ants are considered more of a nuisance when they enter into a home rather than a disease carrier. They can form colonies comprising a single queen and thousands of individual ants. This type of ants can pose a big problem for some gardeners and homeowners.

What are black ants attracted to?

  • In farms - they eat sweet foods like ripe fruits especially fruits like strawberries that lack a thick protective skin. They can also be seen farming honeydew farms around the gardens and vegetations.
  • In homes - black garden ants are a nuisance especially in the early summer months where they explore their surroundings quite extensively in an effort to increase their queen and her young’s food supply and also as a way of testing new ground for the nest's next summer flight. In some cases, these explorations are done by burrowing through mortar and brick and can cause extensive destruction to the house structure.

How can you keep the ants away?

Ants are especially attracted to sweet, sticky substances; therefore, ensure that there are no readily available food sources in your home by;
  • Always covering the food.
  • Clear food and liquid spillages immediately.
  • Tightly seal all rubbish bins.
  • Clear away from pet’s food as soon as its done.
You can also help prevent ants from entering your home through sealing access points like cracks, and crevasses in the door as well as window frames.

How are black garden ants removed when they invade?

A wide range of DIY products are readily available to kill black ants such as ant sprays, ant powders and ant killer gels. DIY products only deal with smaller garden ant problems.

For an established black ant problem however, you will want to consider hiring the services of a professional pest controller to ensure that the problem does not occur again.

Why only a professional pest controller should remove black garden ants

When the black garden ants’ invasion gets out of control, only professional pest control services are recommended to deal with the pest problem or to get rid of the ants.

Avon Pest Control Ltd understands the habits of each ant species and has a range of powerful insecticides to deal with them and leave you with the reassurance that the problem has been fully dealt with.

The problems caused by squirrels in roof spaces

The family of squirrels includes tree squirrels, chipmunks, flying squirrels, ground squirrels and the marmots. Squirrels are known to be terrific climbers, but they come to the ground in search of food. They live next to humans and sometimes can be burrowing into the roof spaces and lead to many damages in your home if taken for granted. The problems associated with squirrels in roof spaces include:

Living in the roof spaces - they love to chew their way into walls or roof spaces since they are warm and safe for their young ones. During nest making, they also bring in materials such as dried leaves and hay that can lead to fire outbreaks. They can also end up chewing power cords thus affecting the electrical system and, again, posing a fire risk. 

Noise making - They often run around the roof which causes a lot of noise and disturbing people (especially at night when sleeping).

Chewing on wooden trim - Squirrels also chew on the wooden trims since they like chewing during their daily routine thus making holes in the wood and causing further damage.

How squirrels destroy things
Crop destruction - Squirrels cause damage to crops by feeding on them. Squirrels mostly feed on young plants thus destroying them.

Destruction of irrigation lines - Squirrels chews on the irrigation lines thus making holes that leak water from the pipes or completely damage the pipe.

Vines and trees - they chew the bark of trees and burrow under the trees, causing damage to nuts and fruit.

Squirrels are prolific breeders  and most squirrel species reproduce twice a year usually at the end of winter or in the middle of summer with a gestation period ranging from 30-45 days depending on the species. The squirrels can have 3-4 babies or even up to 15 babies in a litter depending on the species. If you suspect you have a squirrel problem in your home, you may find it becomes an infestation a lot faster than you had anticipated.

They can destroy properties if not dealt with in a timely manner and it is therefore vital to contact a professional pest control company such as Avon Pest Control as soon as you suspect you may have a squirrel problem before the problem gets out of hand. You can contact Avon Pest Control at

How to clear pest infestations and the best ways to prevent the pests from returning

Most people prefer spending more time indoors in winter, but unknown to them, there are also other creatures, namely pests, who eye up the same homes for their winter warmth. 

How Pests Enter Homes And Businesses
These are common things that can attract pests and other microorganisms to your home or business.
Moisture In Your Home
When there is moisture in your place, it will not take the insects much to get there since they love moisture. You need to ensure that you have no leaks by carefully checking the entire plumbing system. Clear the unwanted water within your residential or commercial place to discourage pests.
It does not matter if the piles of items you have do not have food substances in them, pests will be still attracted to them. Insects and rodents love hiding and burrowing in paper piles and other clutter. You should, therefore, keep your home free of clutter, not only to chase away pests but to maintain neatness too.
Small Cracks In Hidden Places
Bugs and other tiny pests may take advantage of small cracks in and around your homestead to gain access into the house. Check the foundation of your house and walls for any form of cracks that may be present.

Common Methods Of Controlling Pests
When pests are not controlled, home and business owners can incur damages.
Apart from just destroying homes, pests can also consume plants and vegetables, and spread dangerous diseases. There are two major ways of controlling pests; natural and chemical.
Natural control methods of pests are done to actually eliminate or reduce pest infestation without causing harm to crops, humans and other organisms. They are methods that include cultivating insects or other tiny organisms that eat pests, companion planting to chase the insects away from the major crops.
A chemical pest control method is the use of dangerous pesticides that immediately kills parasites upon the use. Chemical pesticides have residual and harmful effects on both animals and humans, and therefore should be utilized with caution.

There are also other methods that have been used to tackle common pest problems. These include mousetraps and flypapers that haven’t born much fruit in the entire war against pest problem.
It does not matter the type of pest you have, Avon Pest Control Ltd is ready to help you eliminate pests in a more fast and professional way. Call us today or you can also check more at

Common causes of pest problems in the home

Most of the time when a homeowner notices a pest problem or an invasion of pests in their home, the common reaction is to apply a quick fix to terminate the problem; what they fail to recognise is that it helps more to deal with the cause of the problem professionally to ensure the pests don’t return. Future pests will only be diminished once the cause of the problem has been identified and dealt with accordingly. Look around the property for environments that may be conducive for common pest problems and breeding of the pests (food left out, holes in skirting boards etc. Here are a few of the common pest problems and their causes:

Shrub or tree branches touching your roof or siding
The problem with this is that ants and rodents use such avenues to escape whenever you apply a pesticide or rodenticide in the house.  The branches of trees act as a highway to the roof and thus making accessibility of your house easy for the rodents

Siding touching soil
When your siding is in contact with the soil, the result is often rotting of the siding. This will eventually invite the ants and other insects. What you can do in such an instance is to dig soil away from the siding deck staircases as well as deck posts. As well, you can provide plenty of clearance starting from the bottom of the siding so that the foundation of your home can be visible. Only then can you manage to control such pests as ants and termites.

Debris in the gutter
Gutters plugged with debris are a big enough problem to worry about, but when water overflows the gutter, it runs down the siding thus leading to the decay of the siding and can encourage pests. At other times, the water in the gutter will be stagnant thus becoming a haven for mosquito breeding. You can fix this by cleaning the gutters every so often. Do not wait until there is too much debris in it.

Damaged soffit vent screens
When you have a damaged or missing soffit vent, you run the risk of inviting birds, rats, and bats which eventually cause unwanted odour and damages. Fixing this is not a big task. Simply get a galvanized hardware cloth and use it to re-screen the problem. You can then use screws to attach the screen. 

Of course, this advice is all very well but in actual fact you will be much better served if you seek the help of a professional pest control company like Avon Pest Control. We will eradicate your home of pests and make sure you don’t get any future infestations. Contact us via our website today and see how we can help with your pest problems.
