IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS
Finding mice in your home or business can be very distressing. Mice are known to spread disease as they search for food and shelter.This poses great health risks in kitchens or where children play.
Since the time when rats spread the Black Plague throughout Europe rodents have been feared as the bringers of disease. Even with our modern medicines there is still cause for concern. Rats and mice can be very destructive and cause serious health risks as they contaminate food supplies as well as storage and preparation areas.
If you have bed bugs in your house, the only thing on your mind will be getting rid of them as quickly as possible. Bed bugs stay close to a food source, so are found where people tend to rest and sleep, hence the name bed bug. The frustration they can cause is not only due to the emotional stress of dealing with parasites, but also the irritation of their bites and the potential for secondary infections from scratching. There has been a recent resurgence of bed bugs in homes.
As the majority of ant species prefer sunny climes, our climate is not suitable for many of them. However, the few species found here can be a nuisance when they get into your home. Garden or Black ants aren’t thought to carry diseases, the trouble is you don’t know where they’ve been foraging outside, so you won’t want them marching through your food cupboards. Ants will travel in a wide range searching for food, following trails they have established and clustering around the source of food.
Wasps are most active in the warm summer months. In Ireland the Common Wasp and German Wasp cause the most annoyance and painful stings. Even with their special yellow and black body, they can still be confused with hornets, although hornets are not as common in this country, they can still bite and sting you.
The larvae can be destructive pests of woollen materials, furs, leather and carpets. Damage can also occur to furniture where there are fabrics and materials of animal origin used.
Pigeons roost on building ledges, causing defacement and health risks from their droppings. Various long term bird control deterrent systems or products can be used where pigeons are a problem.
For many urban dwellers getting a glimpse at a fox was often a memorable moment. Some say that development in the boom time encroached on their habitat; the redevelopment of waste land and farm land on the peripheries of towns and cities for housing and retail parks perhaps displaced a certain number of foxes. But the fox being an adaptable creature seem to have adjusted to suit the urban habitat.
Cluster flies, also known as attic flies, are household pests. Adults measure 8 to 10 millimeters in length and have light and dark grey-checkered abdomens. The thorax of an adult cluster fly is covered in short, golden hairs and the wings overlap when at rest. Cluster flies are slightly larger and darker than the common housefly and move more sluggishly.
Fleas are a common problem in homes, especially those with pets. You may discover a problem with fleas even if you do not have pets, if previous owners of your property kept cats or dogs. Fleas may also be carried on other, especially hairy, animals like rabbits, foxes, squirrels, rats, mice and livestock such as pigs. As parasites, the greatest concern about the presence of fleas in your home or business comes from their bites. Although these are not painful,they can be irritating.
Finding cockroaches in your home or business can be very distressing. As known carriers of diseases such as Salmonella, Dysentery & Gastro-enteritis, exposure to this pest also poses significant health risks. Increases in eczema and asthma have even been linked to cockroach droppings. Cockroaches are very tough insects and their ability to breed rapidly makes professional treatment essential to control any infestation. Only expert products and solutions are powerful enough to eliminate them.
Silverfish are nocturnal in habit and tend to hide during the day therefore infestations may go unnoticed for a considerable length of time. They survive in a damp environment and feed on mould growth.
People are bothered by feral cats for many reasons, including the pungent odour of unneutered males spraying urine to mark their territory, the loud noise associated with cats fighting and mating, the disturbing presence of sick, injured and dying animals, predation on birds and other wildlife, the unwanted intrusion of cats on their property and concern about cats transmitting diseases to other cats. All ferral cats we capture are taken to the DSPCA.
We deal with a multitude of other pests from Spiders, Moths, Midges, stored product insects and Mosquitoes.
STORED PRODUCT PESTS
Stored product pests infest and damage a wide variety of organic materials. Whereas much of the damage usually occurs in storage, infestations may originate where the materials are produced or processed, during shipment, in storage, or in the area of use. Commonly the existence of an infestation becomes apparent when the pests are observed crawling or flying about. Specific identification is necessary. Usually this will suggest where to look for the infested materials and the type of control measures that should be applied.
