Our experienced operators are equipped with the latest pest control equipment, insecticides and rodenticides to deal with any kind of infestation, fast and efficiently.

We deal with the following pests

Fox (vulpes vulpes.)

The fox has successfully moved into town, and they are thriving, a typical den site would be along the railway embankment, in derelict buildings, under garden sheds, and several other locations, urban foxes have adapted well to busy roads although they do have a high mortality rate, many young foxes become the victim of the car, however there numbers are increasing every year, in the summer months you may see whole families of foxes playing and sunbathing, in the afternoon, as the fox has become bolder his fear of humans has diminished some what.

We have read about fox attacks on young and old people, any small mammal is at risk including cats and dogs, diseases carried can be transmitted to humans and the family pets, one of those symptoms is sarcoptic scabe the most commonest of mange and one that requires careful treatment, it is caused by the infestation of a fox with a minute parasite, an other name for this is the itch mite, this mite attacks the lymph, and is suspected to feed on the epidermis, this is the outer layer of the skin, all the face should be burnt immediately, children should not be allowed to play in the infected areas until the foxes have been removed, and cleaned up the garden.

Do not waste time if you think your pet has picked up an allergic reaction or looks unwell consult your veterinary surgery immediately.

Mink (American mink mustela vison )

Mink have caused havoc along the waterways of most of England and Ireland they have nearly wiped out the vole population, including many ground nesting birds, fish and small waterside mammals, an unwelcome alien which has become established after escaping from fur farms during the past few decades.

Mink can climb like squirrels and swim like rats, they are dangerous, and should not be approached, mink were introduced from the united states of America.

Rabbit oryctolagus cunniculus

Rabbits were introduced into Britain by the Romans only for food to feed the legions of the roman Army, they breed them in captivity, however many rabbits escaped and survived our climate and with in a decade the rabbits had recovered and were in abundance, rabbit meat was popular up until the second World War, in the 1930s the Authorities hired local gamekeepers, and farm workers to catch some live rabbits and inject them with myxamatosis, this viral pneumonia type symptom nearly wiped out the rabbit population.

Today there are plenty of rabbits around although they have an out break in one particular area every few years, some die but the majority are healthy and strong. The reason why this probably happens is because in the 1950s in the UK a rabbit flea (spilopsyllus cuniculi) which was carrying the virulent myxoma virus causing myxomatosis was released to keep down the numbers,

Moles

Mole hills – piles of fresh, excavated soil – don’t fully convey the extent of one mole’s underground tunnel system, which can cover a surprisingly large area. If a young plant isn’t developing, it could be due to tunnelling beneath it.

Seedlings can also suffer badly when their roots are disturbed, or they’re left dangling in an empty space. Before mowing a lawn with mole hills, sweep up the soil to avoid smudging it across the grass.

Mole traps are very effective. Insert one in a tunnel, cover it with turf and an upturned bucket to exclude light, and check it daily. Electronic devices are available that emit a buzzing sound to drive moles away, either to the other end of a large garden or to your neighbour’s garden!

Professional contractors can gas the tunnels, but only if it’s 3m away from occupied buildings. And this won’t prevent other moles from tunnelling into your garden.

Grey squirrel

The grey squirrel was introduced from the USA into approximately 30 sites across the UK from 1876-1930. Grey squirrels can cause serious damage through their gnawing of cables, building structures and other vulnerable materials such as insulation as they search for food or nesting material.

They will readily inhabit lofts, attics and roof spaces as well as outbuildings. Signs of their presence will be scratching noises and droppings, however, these can be mistaken for rat droppings. They are not thought to carry human diseases but can bite if they are frightened.

In addition, grey squirrels may pass fleas to domestic animals which can be treated using animal flea treatments. If grey squirrels are infesting your roof space, they can be denied access by sealing up access routes using chicken wire. However, you must ensure that there are no young or adult squirrels in your loft space before carrying out proofing work. Entrances to loft spaces can often be unaccessable, so you may need to contact a pest control company to carry out the work for you. They will also be able to advise when to carry out pest control so as to avoid the breeding season.
