However, if you do decide to tackle the problem yourself, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Firstly, it is important to remember that rats are very good at hiding, so you will need to be very thorough in your search for them. Secondly, Mice are also very good at chewing through almost anything, so you will need to be sure to seal any holes or cracks that they may be using to gain access to your property. Finally, rats are also attracted to food, so you will need to be careful to clean up any spillages or food scraps that may be attracting them to your home.

We are now well into insect season and the warmer weather has brought an increase in ant activity. The Black Ant or Garden Ant is the cause of most of the problems we get contacted about. They will frequently build nests under patios or foundations and produce small piles of very fine dust or sand as they burrow up to the surface. The pictures show typical damage caused by Black Ants. St George’s Pest Control can offer a range of effective treatments against ants, and if the ants are getting inside your property we offer a summer long guarantee against them returning.

Rat Control Southend on Sea

Rats are active throughout the year and in the past cold harsh winters were a natural method of keeping their number down. The milder winters of recent times have help rat populations thrive. By far the most common species of rat in Essex is the Brown Rat which has the scientific name of Rattus Norvegicus. By nature the Brown Rat lives underground which is one of the reasons they are found in sewers (one of the other names they are known by is the Sewer Rat).

Brown Rats are very good at digging and will create a complex of underground burrows where they have the chance. The entrances to these burrows are one sure sign that you have rats nearby.

If you have holes around your property that look likes those in the pictures, give St Georges Pest Control a call for professional advice.

Now the weather is warming up ants are starting to become active. The most common ant species we deal with is the Black Garden Ant. These are highly organised social insects and the foraging worker ants can invade buildings in search of food.

These are from 3 to 5mm in length and are attracted to sweet foodstuffs which they take back to the nest to feed to the larvae and queen. Our standard treatment for ants is to spray around the outside of the property with a long lasting residual insecticide, although depending on the type and severity of the problem other treatments are also used.

All of our treatments for Black Garden Ants come with a summer long guarantee against re-infestation inside the property.

Rat Problems Essex

Winter 2021 / 2022 has been an unusually busy year for us for rat problems. Whether it’s due to the mild weather or another cause is hard to say but all of our technicians have reported an increase in rat activity over previous winters. The species of rat we commonly see is the brown rat, and these naturally live underground. For this reason it’s most common for brown rats to enter a property at or below ground level, frequently via faults with the drains. Once inside the building the rats will follow pipework and appear in lofts, under baths and kitchen units.

 

The pictures are from a recent job where our technician removed the bath panel and found rats droppings under the bath. The most common way rat problems are reported to us is as night-time noises in the loft or wall cavities.

 

If you are being trouble by unexplained noises coming from the loft or walls, contact St George’s Pest Control for free advice and a quote.

Every year when the cold weather starts there is always an increase in calls about mice as they look to find food and shelter inside houses. This year we have been exceptionally busy dealing with calls about mice. Mice only need a gap of 5mm to enter a property. The pictures show a recent job where mice had gained access to a kitchen via a gap around a water drainage pipe.

The cheapest and easiest way to seal gaps around pipework is to use wire wool, which can be pressed into the gap around the pipe using the blade of a screwdriver. Before sealing any gaps though it’s always best to make sure there are no mice inside, as sealing gaps then will simply trap them inside the building.

For this reason if you think you have mice in your property its always best to have them dealt with by a pest control professional, before starting any work to seal entry points. The second picture shows what mouse droppings under a kitchen unit look like.

Pigeon Proofing Southend

Heat pumps are becoming more and more common and when they are fitted they can create a place for pigeons to roost. As well as being unsightly pigeon droppings can also create a health hazard. The pictures show a recent job where we installed pigeon proofing around the external fittings and pipework of a heat pump.

 

If you are being bothered by pigeons, call St George’s Pest Control for advice and a free quote.

Squirrel Control Southend on Sea

Grey squirrels do not carry the same disease risk as rats but they can cause just as much damage. Like all rodents their teeth are incredibly strong and continue to grow throughout their life. They are constantly gnawing to keep their teeth sharp and in good condition. If a squirrel gets into your loft this can lead to a lot of damage to cables and even roof beams. The pictures show squirrel damage we found on a recent job both inside and outside a property.

 

If you have a problem with squirrels contact St Georges Pest Control for advice and a free quotation.

Wasp control Southend on Sea

wasp nest control Southend on sea

 

Wasps are thought of as a pest of the summer months, but in mild weather they can still be a problem well into autumn and even early winter. The life cycle of a wasp nest is only around six months, running from spring through to autumn. It’s toward the end of this period that wasps nests that have established themselves in house can become a really nasty problem.

 

At the end of the life of the nest the young queens that will go onto to create next summers nests hatch out. These young queens need to find a nice warm secure spot to overwinter before starting to build their own nest in spring next year.

 

The pictures show wasps that have eaten their way through a ceiling to get from a loft into the living area underneath, possibly attracted by the heat coming up from below.

 

If you find a number of wasps in your house at this time of year it could be you have an undiscovered wasp nest somewhere inside or around your property. Contact St George’s Pest Control for expert advice and a free quote.

Rodent Control Southend on Sea

With the onset of autumn we always have an increase of inquiries about rats. In most domestic premises nearly all cases of rat infestations can be traced back to a problem with the drains in the property.

Rats commonly enter the property at or below ground level and then climb through the fabric of the building and find their way into the loft. Rats are mostly nocturnal creatures so often rat problems begin with a report hearing night time noises in the loft.

 

The pictures show images of rat droppings found in a loft on a recent job. If you are hearing noises in your loft at night, Contact St George’s Pest Control for expert advice.

Moth Control Southend

Moth Control Southend

 

There are several species of clothes moth that as well as causing damage to clothes can also damage carpets. The moths themselves are harmless, it’s the larvae or caterpillars that cause the problems. Feeding on natural fibres they can create bare patches on woollen carpets, often under areas covered by furniture such as beds or sofas.

 

The moths are small only being around 7 mm long and are very poor flyers, they are commonly seen crawling or flying just a few centimetres off the floor. One species, known as the case-bearing clothes moth, spins a white silken case around itself, and sightings of these are a tell tale sign of a problem.

 

If you are noticing damage to your carpets and think you may have a moth problem, contact St Georges Pest Control for advice.

Cockroach Control Essex

Cockroach Control Essex

 

 

German cockroaches are a pest of heated buildings and can spread quickly in the right conditions. they are often found in kitchens and heating systems and can carry and spread a number of human diseases as they feed on refuse and then walk across food preparation areas. Cockroaches are one of the species of insects, that like Bedbugs, do not go through a larval stage. This means when they hatch out the young cockroaches look like miniature adults.

As they grow the cockroaches have to shed their skins and German cockroaches will do this between 5 and seven times before they reach adult size, which can take between two and six months. The pictures show an adult and juvenile German cockroach feeding on a cockroach bait applied in a kitchen at a recent infestation we attended. Cockroaches can be very difficult to deal with and are best left to a professional pest controller.

 

If you have a problem with cockroaches call St Georges Pest Control for expert advice.

All rodents have very strong teeth that continue to grow throughout their lives. To keep their teeth in good condition they will continually be gnawing at objects, whether it be wood, plastic or even concrete. The picture shows how rats have gnawed through a plastic wheelie bin to get at the contents inside. If you think you might have rats around your property or business, contact St Georges Pest Control.
