FLEAS, FLEAS IN CARPET, FLEA BITES, FLEA TREATMENT



End of May approaches and calls are coming in for flea infestations and customers requiring flea treatments.
Pets are now starting to bring fleas in doors and as the number of fleas in a property increases, so customers start to get bit.
Fleas in a house will gather where pets like to sleep or feed, they rely on the pet returning to jump on and take a blood meal.
The treatment for fleas is to spray as much of the floor space as possible with a residual insecticide, this turns as much of the floor as possible in to a flea trap. When fleas emerge or hatch, they get on treated surfaces and this kills them off.
Some companies seem to struggle to deal with fleas and some offer two or three treatments in order to gain control of customers flea problems. This is a sign of bad pest control, either they are not using a residual insecticide or they are failing to read the instructions for application rates and fail to put enough insecticide down to deal with the infestation. Anyone who knows what they are doing should be able to treat your property just once and gain control of your flea problem.

FLEA TREATMENTS;
Prices start from
FLEA TREATMENT MALVERN 90
FLEA TREATMENT DROITWICH 90
FLEA TREATMENT WORCESTER 90
The cost of a flea treatment will depend on the size of the property, prices quoted are for a typical two up two down house.





SWARM OF BEES, BEES IN CHIMNEY, SWARM OF BEES IN TREE, BEES



Now we are in to May, bees are starting to swarm. Honey Bees swarm to start a new colony and this warm weather is what sparks off this swarming process. Where ever possible if a swarm of bees can be collected we will get a local bee keeper to collect them but not all swarms of bees can be for instance if you have a swarm of bees in your chimney or the swarm of bees gets in to the fabric of the building.
As it gets warmer more and more hives will swarm.
WHY DO SWARMING BEES USE MY CHIMNEY?
The reason for this is usually because the fireplace that serves that chimney has been sealed of, this cuts off the natural up draught, you effectively have a hive on your roof waiting for bees to find it so they swarm to it.
I HAVE BEEN TOLD BEES ARE PROTECTED, ARE THEY?
NO is the answer to this, although we should make efforts to save swarms of bees, sadly it is not always possible.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET A SWARM OF BEES TREATED?
That will depend entirely on who you use to treat them. We have met customers who have been quoted hundreds of pounds to have a swarm of bees in a chimney treated.....yet we have managed to treat them for a fraction of the price quoted.
We provide affordable swarm of bees control and are highly experienced.






ANTS, ANTS IN KITCHEN, ANTS IN HOUSE



As Spring starts, so ants nests in houses and ants nest in kitchens are starting to show up. These ants nests have been there all winter, just ticking over but now they are getting more active. This is because the ants nests are starting to produce more workers to forage for food to feed up the new queen ants that are being reared. The ants nest will get bigger and bigger and the number of ants in the nest will increase.
Ants nests can survive for many years if not treated and grow bigger each year. Each nests starts off when a queen ant that was released from a nest when it swarmed, found a crack or crevice or just dug in to the ground and started to lay eggs. So all new ants nests start with a single queen ant.
Getting rid of your ants nest will depend on where the nest is located and how long it has been there. Different treatments are used depending on where the ants nest is located either in or outside the building.





SWARM OF BEES, BEES IN CHIMNEY, SWARM OF BEES IN TREE



As we go into May we will soon start to see honey bees start to swarm. There seem to be a lot of confusion about swarms of bees with many customers believing that swarms of bees are protected and that nothing can be done if they decide to take up residence in your chimney!!!!! Although we should do everything we can to help protect bees and we have been working with local bee keepers for 20 years to get those that can be collected rehomed in hives, we do have to deal with a few swarms of bees that usually end up down a chimney or in wall cavities were they can not be collected.
Many of our new customers who have swarms of bees have been given bad advice, they are told they are protected or if they are not bothering you leave them!!!!
Each year we get several cases were customers have taken this bad advice and ended up regretting it. It is common to see honey dripping out of a wall because the swarm of bees have been left so long and produced so much honey it is being soaked up by the brickwork. We also get to meet customers who have ended up in hospital after being stung by the bees.
