If you live in the UK, you can appreciate the huge difference in climate from winter to summer, and every April and May, the insects and pests come out to play. There are no hard and fast rules about avoiding household pests, aside from keeping the interior spotlessly clean, and here are a few of the common house pests you could encounter here in the UK.
- Rats & Mice – If they decide to invade your home, you have little choice but to call in your local pest control services in Southend-On-Sea, as home remedies might work to a degree, it takes a professional approach to eradicate rodents.
- Ants – Red or black, ants can arrive in huge numbers, and even if you do not have food uncovered, they can decide to set up home in your home. Putting down poison might work, but for a guaranteed solution, call your local pest control company, who have both the know-how and the equipment to handle any size ant nest.
- Wasps, Bees & Hornets – Active from June to September, you are more likely to encounter a nest in rural areas, which would include suburbs. They like to nest in roof eaves and under the soffit board, or another favourite is trees, especially hornets, as they prefer to be in quiet areas. While bees can only sting you once, wasps and hornets can sting again and again, and should you even think you have a nest on your property, call your local pest control company.
These pests can randomly occupy any area, and in the event you think your home might be occupied by any unwanted creatures, talk to your local pest control firm.
