Pest Control Problems You May Encounter
Although we always try to identify pests via phone or email, it can be challenging if they are uncommon or haven't been seen. So please get in touch with us to discuss the pest that is causing your Kent home or business problems.
We also have extensive information on our website to help you identify what kind of insect, bug, or rodent is causing problems; see below:
You will usually encounter rat pest problems during certain times of the year, as the weather can affect their numbers and homes.
Usually, rats choose to live in fields or outdoors, but as the cold weather increases across Maidstone and Kent, they decide to find more suitable homes and food sources. Sheds, homes, and business premises are common places to see rats as it’s dry and warm.
If you suspect you have a rat problem, please call Pest-Tech as soon as possible.
Mice usually migrate from their nests if they get waterlogged, building works or lack food sources.
When looking for a new home, mice are opportunists and very inquisitive, so they can turn up in the most unusual places, but they will always pick up a scent for food. So don’t be surprised if you see them visiting your kitchen.
If you see mouse droppings around your building, call us.
Wasps start appearing in the summer months in Kent from late June onward when the queen has laid her first batch of little workers, and they are beginning to build their nests.
Wasps can be aggressive if they feel threatened and so will attack with a sting if they think they are at risk. Unfortunately, that includes around their nest, so you must take care if you are going near a wasp nest.
We recommend that you stay away and call Pest-Tech to deal with them, we are always here to help.
Fleas are normally introduced to a home from a pet cat or dog, and they can be very frustrating to live with as feeling them bite is very uncomfortable.
Fleas reproduce very quickly; the eggs are impenetrable, and heat vibration encourages the egg to hatch as they know a food host is present. We are experts in flea treatments and resolving flea infestations, so you don’t have to.
Call today, and once we know how many rooms you have, we can give you a quote.
It is good to see squirrels out in the wild where they belong; however, problems will begin when they decide to get into a loft space.
Squirrels do so much damage through their constant gnawing, chewing through timber joist supporting your roof or electric wiring in the loft, which can cause electrical faults or even electrical fires.
If you have squirrels running around your loft space, you must act immediately and call us.
Bed Bugs can be transmitted from person to person very quickly, and once you have taken them home, they can very quickly become a significant problem.
The bed bugs can feed and then lay eggs, and before you know what’s happening, you have an infestation, which is why we recommend you act fast to get the problem under control.
If you see any black spotting on the bed, catch a bed bug in a crack or crevice or have blood marks on the sheet, then call us.
Moles can ruin a garden if it is a new infestation because moles are solitary and only come together to mate. In addition, they have to eat their body weight in worms daily, which means they patrol their tunnels every few hours.
It is not easy to catch a mole in a trap; however, Pest-Tech technicians are trained to do the job quickly, so minimum damage is caused to your lawn.
If you need help with your mole problem across Maidstone or Kent, then call today to book an appointment.
Pigeons will create a dirty, smelly environment if they are left to roost and nest in an area that is not maintained. In addition, their guano (poo) is hazardous to health and can cause a slip hazard when wet.
If you own a business, pigeons can cause damage to stock and contaminate product. Pest-Tech can deal with this by providing bird proofing solutions or pigeon removal.
Call today to arrange a bird survey at your property.
Ant problems typically start from March as the ant nests begin to come alive. After that, they pop up from all sorts of places in the search for carbohydrates.
It could be that you have an ants nest under a new extension, they may be getting in through brickwork or a bad fitting, but they usually end up in the kitchen as that’s where the food is that they are after.
Call the office to book an appointment if you need an ant treatment.
Common Clothes Moths and Carpet Moths are the same thing; they are textile pests that cause damage to natural fibres. However, it’s not the moth that does the damage you’re seeing; it’s the larvae that feed on textiles.
If you think you have a problem with moths, then move the furniture and check underneath. If you find lots of little white silk flecks that look the same size as a grain of rice, you will need to seek more advice.
For more advice on moths, call the office today.
The general public often confuses honey bees with wasps, meaning bees get an unnecessarily hard time. They are very peaceful and friendly insects. If you can, you should consider leaving them as they don’t tend to sting unless in danger as they will die after.
We actively try and save the bees, so we often come out and do a survey to assess accessibility for bee removal. In addition, we have a network of beekeepers across Kent and the Southeast that will home the bees after the removal.
There are lots of potential fly problems you may have, all of which depend on the fly breed. A fly problem could show an underlining issue that may be occurring elsewhere. For example, it may be a leak somewhere or a dead carcass, a food source for blow larvae.
Cluster Flies are a common problem around October and April. This is when they come in over winter and then wake up to go out in the spring.
Give us a call to sort out your fly problem.
Ladybirds will return to a location overwinter because they are attracted to the pheromone they leave to guide them back. Often this will be cracks and crevices, window frames and lofts.
They are not considered a mainstream pest; however, they can release a bitter yellow liquid that is a defence mechanism and does stain.
If you are struggling with an influx of ladybirds, then we can help.
Variegated Carpet Beetle can fly into a property through an open window. Their larvae, known as woolly bears, are associated with bird nests and textile pests that love a wool carpet.
Carpet beetle larvae are about 3mm long, and you can often find them under furniture if you have an infestation. However, they like dark places, and you struggle to see them in a deep pile carpet.
If you need help with a carpet beetle infestation, then give us a call.
Silverfish are classed as a scavenger, and they eat anything and everything. As a result, they are often found in kitchens, cellars and bathrooms as they thrive in damp spots.
They also like bookbinding and wallpaper paste, so you can often find them spread around the house if the problem has not been treated and the infestation grows.
If you see silverfish around your Maidstone or Kent property, you may need some help from our expert Silverfish control experts.
Cockroaches are easily transmitted from place to place and can quickly become a problem if not treated.
The two main species in Kent and the UK are the Oriental Cockroach, a drain dweller and the German Cockroach, which like warm environments such as fridge motors and boilers. They are nocturnal, so you are likelier to see them at night when they come out.
Cockroaches carry severe diseases and health risks, so if you see any signs of activity, book an appointment today.
Foxes are lovely creatures out in the wild; however, in an urban environment, they can cause problems through their scavenging for food.
Their lack of shyness towards humans is increasing through people feeding them and more contact, which creates problems in vulnerable places, such as schools and nurseries. For this reason, we advise on ways to fox-proof, trap and humanely remove.
Our professional experiences have found that no DIY products on the market work with any success.
Rabbits can be highly costly to farmers due to the damage they do to crops. Rabbits are very persistent if they have a plentiful food source. They will actively attack fence wire to make a hole big enough to get through.
They will decimate a flower bed or a vegetable plot if a nice leaf is available for them to eat. Furthermore, they multiply quickly in the right environment, destroying all food sources.
If you need advice on rabbit control or would like to book a survey, we can help.
To most people, spiders aren’t a problem. However, we understand that some have a phobia of spiders and need help to rid their home of them.
We carry out spider treatments that can be just for the home but can do other areas such as loft spaces, garages and sheds. However, we can’t do any spray treatments in green areas, but the treatment of cracks and crevices outside the house is allowed.
If you need help with a spider issue or infestation, then we can help; call to book an appointment.
Woodworm infestations are quite a common problem but do need checking as a minimum. The obvious sign of a problem is seeing the holes with new dust around them. You may also notice the actual beetles on the timber.
If you see any signs, we recommend you arrange a survey to check them out for peace of mind. If left, the infestation can spread to other timbers making the problem extremely costly.
If you need help with woodworm then give us a call to have a chat.
