Pest Control in Liverpool and Wirral has seen a brisk start this year which is rather surprising given the somewhat colder (weather of this last winter|winter of 2009/10}.
Pest controllers were kept busy with the usual town centre rat infestations during the winter of 2009/10, but the relatively cold early spring has already seen some ant calls coming in.
The wet summers of the last few years were not to the taste of the hymenoptera (sawflies, wasps, ants & bees) but this year looks like it will turn out to be a busy year for flying ant work.
Regularly ants build nests under the floors of buildings and inside cavity walls causing a large number of foraging ants to enter kitchens and food cupboards.
However it is at the mating time when they can be most annoying as they release winged queens and males which then fly off to mate.
The emergence of several thousands of these winged ants inside your home can be horrible in the extreme.
A relatively new pest was especially numerous in the Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire area last season, the Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci).
It was rare for pest operatives in Cheshire, Lancashire and Manchester to encounter these pests until recent times but they seemed to appear from nowhere in recent years and already this year has seen sightings of these beetles in unprecedented numbers.
They have a similar life cycle to moths their larvae, known as woolly bears eat natural fibres and can do great damage to carpets and natural fabrics. They can be a difficult and persistent pest to get rid of.
Those who are involved in pest control have noted that Bed Bugs are carrying on their return in the Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire area, frequently arriving as stowaways in the suitcases of home-coming holiday makers.
Often the first reaction of unlucky people who realise that they have been infested with these horrible,blood-sucking pests is to get rid of the old beds and get.
This is an expensive error as despite their name bed bugs not only live in beds and in an infested room will be found everywhere within about five metres of the bed, in cupboards, drawers etc, even in electrical and telephone sockets and the new beds will be instantly re-infested.
Most people mix up bed bugs with dust mites which are not visible to the naked eye.They both need a different method of pest control
They dine exclusively on blood which they syphon from their sleeping victims. People usually associate bed bugs with dirty conditions but nothing could be further from the truth, they do not require grime, their food is you!
