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.

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.

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.

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 http://www.avon-pestcontrol.co.uk/pestControl/

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 www.avonpestcontrol.co.uk today and see how we can help with your pest problems.

Problems that occur from having squirrels in your roof space

Squirrels look furry and cute but are dangerous to say the least. In fact, these rodents are known to carry rabies and other infectious diseases as well. They have also been known to attack domesticated animals in homes, while causing interior and exterior damages for businesses as well. Squirrels can even enter your home if your rooftops are not secure. With this in mind, it is important to contact the experts at Avon Pest Control for timely assessment and eradication services.

With years of extensive industry experience, Avon Pest Control has helped countless clients with their pest infestation issues. In fact, they have the tools and expertise to rid your property of squirrels, along with their nests and young. Avon uses the best and safest means possible when it comes to redirecting squirrels out of your roof and back into the wild. However, squirrels may also need to be removed forcibly since they are considered a threat to humans and domesticated pets. Your Avon pest control specialist will determine the best way – based on complete analysis and assessment of the situation. Usually, squirrel traps will be placed to capture and safely remove these creatures. However, pesticides and bait can also be used in the face of mass infestation – which is dangerous and can seriously impact your roof and home as a whole.

While Avon cannot fully promise that squirrels or rodents will never return to your property – they do everything they can to prevent future squirrel infestation. This includes sealing off susceptible areas on roofs, basements, windows, garage doors, and crawlspaces that serve as entrance and exit ways for rodents. They also place physical pesticide nuggets, which helps eliminate hordes of rodents once consumed and taken back to their hives and dwellings. Sadly, this is the only way to really contain the spread of these infectious creatures. If you are dealing with a potential rodent infestation, simply contact Avon Pest Control today to schedule a complimentary consultation and assessment. They also help remove pests from schools, businesses, cinemas, restaurants, and all residential and commercial establishments across the UK.

Common problems with squirrels and other rodents

Squirrels and rodents are synonymous with destroying exterior and interior furniture. They also tend to reproduce at alarming rates, and even carry a range of diseases. These vermin also love to congregate in warm and arid areas, which give them warmth, protection, and the perfect place to breed. These animals have even been known to attack dogs, cats, and humans if they feel threatened. With this in mind, it is imperative to contact Avon Pest Control if you suspect or have a squirrel or rodent infestation problem. With years of extensive pest control experience, we have the tools and expertise to rid all residential and commercial properties of rats, mice, squirrels and other rodents. We also know how to prevent future infestations by sealing off any open spaces or susceptible entrance and exit areas.

Why Squirrels and Vermin are Dangerous

Squirrels and rodents can easily contaminate food with urine and droppings. If not taken care of in a timely and professional manner, these pests can truly damage your property as a whole. This includes chewing through walls to create their own entrance and exit pathways, along with damaging furniture and even biting your loved ones and domestic pets. With this in mind, Avon Pest Control utilises strong measures to eliminate vermin and rodents from your home or office. This includes but is not limited to:

·         Complete assessment and analysis of the rodent or squirrel infestation at hand.

·         Placing large sticky pads to trap any mice, rats, or other vermin and creatures in garages, crawlspaces, basements, etc.

·         Sealing off susceptible areas that these animals use to enter and leave your property.

·         Bait and switch – utilising bait to attract the rodents – once they consume this bait they will take it back to their home and spread it out. This results in complete elimination of rats, mice, and their young.

·         Spraying rat and mice based pesticides (sprays and nuggets) to again contain or eliminate the rodent infestation at its core.

·         All services are insured, certified, and designed to prevent squirrels and rodents from establishing a foothold in your property again.
