Important facts about the types of insect we treat
If you’ve recently travelled away from home, then you may have brought home unwelcome guests. Bed bug infestations can severely impact your peace of mind. Their bites are highly irritating. What’s more, the thought of these insects crawling through your bed while you’re sleeping is stomach turning. Good thing getting rid of them is relatively easy.
The technicians at Pest Exterminators Herts use advanced techniques like heat treatments.
This method uses super-heated vapour to destroy bed bugs. It’s vastly more effective than fumigation, and is capable to killing 100% of bed bugs. This includes the insects, their larvae and also eggs.
Cockroaches can seem almost impossible to get rid of. Anyone who has dealt with an infestation will already know this. The reason why is because they are highly evolved survivors. These creatures are able to live almost anywhere and exist on almost no food. Not only that, their eggs and larvae are almost microscopic, making them fiendishly difficult to find and eliminate.
If you have cockroaches then you should start by cleaning you home more thoroughly. Focus on your kitchen and bathroom. While this may help in some cases, quite often the cockroaches will persist. If this happens contact the exterminators at Pest Exterminators Herts.
While moths may seem innocuous this really isn’t the case. The problem with these insects is that they mostly feed on fabrics such as wool, silk, linen, and fur. If moths get into your cupboard, they can destroy valuable items of clothing and other items made from fabric.
And it’s not only clothing that moths destroy.
These insects also eat carpets, upholstery, and curtains, causing thousands of pounds of damage. Moths also wreak havoc in your kitchen. They love to eat food such as grains, pasta, nuts, and dried fruit. These are just a few of the reasons why Pest Exterminators Herts recommends that moths are eliminated quickly.
Ants are not known for being destructive or spreading diseases. The biggest problem with these insects is the irritation factor. If you have ants in your kitchen you will know what we mean. Hundreds of ants swarming over your countertops can become a serious burden. They also interfere with food preparation and eating. Putting food down for even a few moments will draw ants, and many meals have been spoiled by these insects.
The easiest way to combat this is by cleaning. To prevent ants you need to keep your kitchen spick and span. Clean countertops and floors before going to bed, and never leave unwashed dishes in the sink.
Flies are a common sight in kitchens and around dustbins. Like ants, these insects are not known for destroying homes. The problem with flies is that they spread diseases such as salmonella.
These insects are major disease vectors that transmit bacteria wherever they land and walk.
In fact, did you know that flies have to vomit on food in order to eat it? They can only eat liquid food and use their stomach acid to do this. The problem is that their stomachs contain enormous amounts of bacteria, and this is then transferred onto your food.
While fleas are thought of as pests that only affect pets, this isn’t exactly true. Fleas are more than happy to feed on humans. This can be a serious problem because fleas bites are known to spread diseases. This means that if you have fleas, the problem should be taken care of immediately. Due to their small size, fleas can be incredibly difficult to get rid of. In most cases you will need to have your house fumigated. Heat treatments are also great for destroying fleas.
Wasps are a common sight in Hertfordshire gardens. This is especially true if you’re eating outside. During barbecues and picnics, these pests often seem to appear out of nowhere. If you have a wasps’ nest anywhere close to your home, resist the urge to deal with it yourself. These insects are hyper aggressive and may well immediately begin to sting you. Many people are unknowingly allergic to these stings, and you could find yourself in hospital. With wasps, it’s always a far better idea to seek professional help.
