Most common infestations
Our fee for the treatment of wasps’ nests is set at £39 and we will definitely not ask you for more unless access apparatus such as scaffolding or a cherry-picker is required to gain access to the nest. Please note that working at height legislation is very rigid these days so please advise us if the nest is any taller than the gutters of a standard domestic home.
The only exception to this rule is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, where a supplementary treatment to your attic space may be necessary.
We try and handle wasps’ nests from the outside of the property if at all practicable and we prefer to use extended lances as opposed to ladders, it’s much safer for all concerned.
Our contractor will arrive by scheduled appointment, inject a little bit of powdered insecticide into the entrance to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will bring it into the heart of the nest and inside of an hour all the wasps will be dead.
So Long As we can have access to the wasps’ nest from the exterior of the building you do not even have got to wait in. Our specialist wasp control website has a prepayment feature for you to pay by paypal or credit card, sorry we can accept credit cards on the internet or on-site but not over the phone. Remember to call us to tell us you’ve prepaid and to advise us where the nest is. Also remember to don’t forget to unlock any gates etc that we may need to go through and relocate any dustbins etc which might be in the way.
If there are any factors which may be relevant such as the presence of bats etc then please don’t wait until we arrive on location to tell us about them, we won’t carry out a treatment if it’s unsafe but we will ask you for a call-out fee.
The prevalent pest of the moment is bed bugs, they are a world-wide epidemic and effortlessly transported to your home.
There is a good deal of confusion between bed bugs and dust mites. Every bed has tiny, undetectable to the naked eye dust mites, bed bugs are wholly a separate thing.
Bed bugs are about the shape and size of an apple pip and feed exclusively on blood, your blood!
You can carry bed bugs to your house simply by staying in an infested hotel room or even by being seated next to the wrong person on the tube.
It only requires a single female to quickly develop an infestation in your house and they disperse like wildfire through connected premises, semi-detached and terraced etc. If the infestation is very severe you can suffer 4-600 bites per night and become actually very ill.
These pesky bugs are not a pest which can be taken on by an unqualified, you will want specialist assistance or you are likely to make matters worse. If you even think that you may have got bed bugs then speak to Stretford Pest Control.
Before you undergo any actions at all, most certainly do not get a new bed or mattress because it will be infested by bed bugs on the very first night.
People who have an ant issue within their properties will know just how dreadful it can be, specifically when the flying ants emerge.
However, we are currently a lot better equipped to tackle ants than we were even a handful of of years ago. We can now with full confidence offer a 3 year warranty on ant jobs in the majority of cases.
The procedure is very simple, leaves no mess and is safe for everyone involved.
Do not spend pounds on ant powders and ant gels when we can overcome your indoor ant infestation at a modest price and offer you a renewable three year warranty in the bargain.
Cat Fleas and Dog Fleas are getting to be more bothersome in the Stretford Pest Control region and we are getting more and more requests from people who routinely treat their cats and dogs and yet are still getting flea infestations in their homes.
This presents itself to be because populations of cat fleas and dog fleas in the Stretford Pest Control area of operation are proving to be resistant to the active ingredients in the flea control products available to the public.
The growth of these fleas is also caused by the increase in the presence of urban foxes in many locations.
It is vital to take care of a cat flea or a dog flea problem as they can lead to significant problems, particularly for children as they can carry and transmit tapeworms.
