SQUIRRELS, SQUIRRELS IN LOFT, SQUIRRELS IN THE ATTIC



Mid February and we are getting a lot of calls for squirrels, especially squirrels in loft.
This is because it is the squirrels mating season and female squirrels are looking for nest sites to have their young.
DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE DAMAGE SQUIRRELS IN A LOFT CAN DO.....

It tends to be the young squirrels in lofts rather then the adult squirrels that cause most of the damage, from chewed up electrical cables, roof support timbers and even personal belongings.
Mother squirrels in a loft can also be very protective of their young and have been known to attack people who enter the loft.
DO NOT BE TEMPTED TO TRY AND BLOCK UP HOLES THAT THE SQUIRRELS ARE USING, WITHOUT REMOVING THE SQUIRRELS FIRST. THIS USUALLY LEADS TO FAR MORE DAMAGE BEING DONE AS THE MOTHER SQUIRREL TRIES TO GET BACK TO HER YOUNG.

So how do you deal with squirrels in lofts? Best method is to trap the squirrels out first then proof to prevent other squirrels getting in to the loft. Squirrels can have two broods a year.
Trapping squirrels in a loft is not always as straight forward as people think, many customers we meet have already tried and failed.






MICE, MICE IN LOFT, MICE IN KITCHEN, MICE IN HOUSE



As Autumn sets in days are getting shorter and nights are getting colder, mice are turning up in customers lofts, kitchens, homes and businesses.
SO WHY DO I GET MICE IN MY PROPERTY?
Simple answer to that is the mice have found a fault on your property and can gain access..........
The secret to controlling mice is to locate the fault, do something about it so that the mice can no longer gain entry.
Mice do seem to be tolerated by customers as an annual event in the winter months, some even describe the company they employ to deal with their mouse infestation as "they are very good, they come every winter put some bait down and that sorts them out !!!!!!
You certainly would not describe any other tradesman who fails to do the job correctly as GOOD.
The reason you are infested with mice year after year, is simply because the cause of the mouse infestation has not been correctly identified and stopped.
Mice can cause as much damage as rats in a property, we came across an example of how much they can cost customers, when a local business had a mouse chew a cable and the business lost £200,000 in earnings and costs to repair the damage.
Virtually every garden will contain a natural population of mice, which is natural. The number of mice in a garden will depend on how much natural food is available, the more plants, shrubs and hedges you have, the more natural food is available, the more mice you will have. THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM as long as they stay out there and can not get in to your property. Some services provided by companies are in fact trying to empty your garden, your neighbours gardens and even the fields around you as and when more mice find the faults on your property and continue to come in. They fail to address the cause of your problem, WHY? because they can earn far more doing the job wrong, then they can earn doing the job right.......

FACT...........

NEARLY ALL RAT AND MICE INFESTATIONS IN PROPERTIES BE THEY COMMERCIAL OR DOMESTIC HOMES, EVEN RAT AND MOUSE INFESTATIONS IN LOFTS, HAVE THEIR POINT OF ENTRY STARTING JUST FROM 4 FOOT DOWN.......




FLIES IN LOFT, CLUSTER FLIES



As it is getting cooler at night, cluster flies are starting to come in. Cluster flies hibernate through the winter in lofts.
Customers are starting to notice cluster flies coming in to rooms and sitting on the walls of their properties.
Cluster flies DO NOT LAY EGGS in your loft, the only reason for cluster flies to come in to a loft is to survive the winter.
Generations of cluster flies will return year after year to the same loft space simply because it suits their needs.
There is much you the customer can do to reduce the impact cluster flies have and the most effective time to get cluster flies treated is after we have had a sharp frost. This ensures that all the cluster flies are in the loft at the time of the treatment.
Cluster flies lay their eggs in damp soil and when their larvae hatch they seek out earthworms to parasite.
Cluster flies actually feed on pollen and nectar, so they do help with pollination, you will see a lot of cluster flies feeding on the flowers of Ivy at this time of year as it is one of the last plants to come in to flower.
Now we have had a few frosts, cluster flies should be hibernating and now is the time to treat cluster fly problems.
Many customers will have already had at least one or two treatments for their cluster fly problem, this is because the companies they employ do not advise them to wait until it is the best time to treat the cluster flies, lets face it, if you panic and ring them they will make two or three times as much from you and you will still have your problem as more cluster flies continue to come in to your property until it is cold enough to force all the cluster flies in. THIS IS BAD PEST CONTROL
