Everybody has insects in their home at one time or another in their lives. Some are easier to get rid of than others. Calling in a bug terminator company, generally means you are most likely to find a long-lasting solution, rather than simply spraying a little insecticide yourself.
Wasps nests can be handled easily if they are in the ground. It is simple enough to see where the wasps are entering into the soil. Then you just buy a puffer bottle of powder from the hardware shop, squirt it around the nest entrance and the wasps carry it in. What if the nest is up a tree, or under the roofing system of the house. Do you really wish to be up a ladder being stung by countless upset wasps?
Forget it and call in the local professional exterminators.
Ants are a pain in many houses. Finding the nest and pouring boiling water onto it might be really satisfying, but it will not eliminate more than a few thousands of the countless ants in the nest.
Finding termites can be hard, yet locating where they lie is absolutely necessary to choose the right termite eliminator program. The traditional method is to tap on the wood with the back of a screw driver, or to poke holes into the walls or even pull them apart.
Most of our termite inspectors now have the use of up to the minute infrared termite detection system, which is fast, reliable and does not require any damage to your house.
Your local pest control company is extremely discreet and can be contacted over the Internet, so your neighbours need not know that you have unwelcome visitors. After all, it's not the type of thing anybody likes to promote.
I bet all of you can remember a saying when you were going to bed as a child, "goodnight don't let the bed bugs bite". Looking back this was just something innocent that you said to your children or what ever child you were tucking in bed at night.
Today that meaning has come to haunt a lot of people that are having problems with bed bug infestations. These adaptable little flat insects are one of the world's prolific travelers that can be transported on and within suitcases giving them free rides around the world. They will get into any cracks in the wall in skirting boards and they wait for right opportunity to visit you when you are asleep at night. Bed bugs can smell the carbon dioxide you exhale and this leads them straight to you.
Why are they attracted to you? It is because you have what they need to feed off to survive and that is your blood! These pests go about their work to extract your blood and so that you don't disrupt them while they are working they will inject you with an antiseptic so you don't feel them piercing your skin and also the bed bugs have in their bag of tricks is an anti coagulant that they expel when they are extracting your blood so that your blood will run freely. The bed bug once he has fed enough he will leave you looking a dull red and where he was flat he is now round...full of your blood. He will return another night to feast again.
In the morning you maybe unsuspecting of any bugs until that is you may find spots of blood on your sheets in the morning as one of the tell tale signs that you have been visited during the night by these pests or you may have several spots on your sheets that may mean that several of the bed bugs mates were also feasting at the one time.
If you are unlucky enough you might also get a reaction from the bites and come up with welts at the bite site that is itchy and red looking. Pay attention to small children and pets that could also be the target of the pest.
