Once the target pest has been identified, we will put a treatment plan together. For rodents, typically this will include a baiting strategy in conjunction with traps.
Colchester pest control will offer advice on how to avoid future pest problems.
If you find evidence of burrowing, smear marks on walls, black droppings or a strong smell of urine, it’s likely you have a rodent problem! Rats and mice cause a huge amount of damage to properties in Colchester by chewing through wires and water pipes. They also carry numerous diseases and can multiply at an alarming rate, so immediate and effective treatment is essential. Our experienced pest control team use a combination of baits and traps to eliminate these pests. Poisons are introduced gradually over about a week to prevent rodents from getting suspicious of new foods, and to ensure whole colonies are encouraged to feed.
Moles spend most of their lives burrowing underground but come to the surface for food. Overnight, molehills will appear on lawns, fields, golf courses and sports pitches. These are not only unsightly and damaging to mowing or farming machinery, but the uneven surfaces they create can be dangerous for livestock. From experience, we have found that traditional traps are the most effective and humane way to capture moles. We work on a no-mole, no-fee basis, but are confident that we can have your property mole-free in a few days.
Wasps build their nests in dry, safe, solid places, such as lofts, sheds and garages. If you have a nest, don’t try to tackle it as you may put yourself or your family in harm’s way. Instead, call our Colchester wasp nest removal team to quickly and safely destroy it. After a thorough risk assessment, we will administer a strong insecticide powder at the entrance to the nest. This is fast-acting and safe to use around humans and pets. After a few hours, and once the queen wasp has died, there should be no more activity. New wasps will never return to colonise the old nest.
A particularly unpleasant visitor is the bedbug. Bedbugs can be inadvertently brought into your home via second hand furniture or from infested hotel rooms. Bedbugs need to feed on blood, so the first signs you have them may be bites on your body, or spots of blood on your bedding. Professional pest controllers will need to eliminate them as soon as possible. At DCM we have several different removal methods, but our most successful is heat treatments; a localised heat source rapidly and effectively kills the bedbugs with ease.
Fleas enter your home by hitching a lift with your pets and they immediately make themselves comfortable by infesting your soft furnishings, carpets and pet bedding. Despite being so tiny, they give a nasty bite and carry numerous diseases and allergens. Vacuuming frequently, washing materials and treating your pets will help keep the fleas at bay but won’t get rid of them completely. Our Colchester pest technicians will quickly locate the problem areas and eliminate any flea infestations and eggs.
In urban areas, a recent increase in the number of foxes has been partly blamed on poor rubbish disposal. Foxes carry a number of nasty and contagious conditions including mange, fleas and parasites, which can easily be passed onto cats and dogs. As they grow bolder, attacks on chickens and domestic pets have become more frequent and upsetting for owners. Rurally, foxes are also a problem on farms with large chicken populations and livestock, particularly during lambing season. DCM pest control Colchester offer humane methods of culling and trapping foxes to help keep numbers under control. We can also advise on measures to prevent foxes returning, such as fox-proof fences.
Birds in large numbers can be a costly nuisance to businesses. They create mess, noise and damage to buildings. Pigeons and seagulls are the worst offenders. They excrete around entrances and on pavements, and are also known to spread diseases and insect infestations. They have even been known to attack people for food or in defence of their young. Our avian specialists have several methods of bird control depending on the individual circumstances. Bird spikes, netting and electrical ultrasound systems are effective ways of deterring birds from roosting on buildings, while shooting may be more appropriate for large-scale infestations.
Cockroaches are active in the dark, and will quickly scuttle away and hide in crevices the moment a light is switched on. So, you may only know you have a cockroach problem, by their faeces and discarded outer shells. These unhygienic pests will feed on almost anything they can find, and are known to spread a number of nasty diseases. It is crucial that an infestation is dealt with quickly, especially in commercial premises. Our rapid response team will use the most effective chemicals to eliminate your problem quickly and discreetly.
Known for swarming in huge numbers, cluster flies are unwelcome and distressing visitors for any property owner. At night they will hide in tiny crevices in walls and beams, and by day they will swarm inside windows and other warm, sunny spots. This can cause unsightly damage and attract other insects. Depending on the type of property and scale of the problem, our experienced pest controllers will either fumigate, smoke or fog the infestation and surrounding areas to ensure the complete removal of the cluster flies.
