Bexley Bee Control & Bee’s Nest Removal
It is very common for bees to set up hives in or around a home, and given the presence of some apiaries in Bexley it is not uncommon for them to establish themselves in nearby areas.
While it may seem easier to simply leave a hive alone, bee hives can be provoked to sting people they consider to be a threat, which can result in allergic reactions and even anaphylactic shock, with an increased risk in children.
Our technicians will typically remove a nest intact rather than destroying it outright, which often provides a cleaner experience with less use of chemicals, yet removing an infestation will always come first and we will use all the tools at our disposal to do so.
Bexley Wasp Control & Wasp’s Nest Removal
Wasps are not only more aggressive than bees, but also capable of delivering multiple stings with little provocation. Past customers have often stumbled upon wasp-nests when entering attic spaces or doing gardening, and it can be immensely distressing to accidentally aggravate a swarm.
Given the increased aggressiveness of wasps and the difficulties that living with wasps can create, Bexley Wasp Control pursues a far more intensive treatment wasp hives than it does for bee hives, utilising the potent chemical Bendiocarb to ensure that the wasps get no opportunity to enter a dangerous swarm state.
Bexley Hornet Control
The dangers of hornets are more considerable than those of wasps and bees, and it can be easy for the untrained to misidentify their nests and thus underestimate the extent of the danger.
While most of our customers in Bexley only suffer from European Hornet infestations, climate factors have led the media to expect an influx of Asian Hornets into England, which are responsible for multiple fatalities every year in their normal habitats in China and Japan. As such, the dangers of dealing with a hornet nest are greatly multiplied, but our technicians have the necessary knowledge to identify a nest and inform you of its risk.
As with wasps, we use an intensive chemical treatment, as anything less than professional-grade substances will only aggravate a hornet swarm.
Bexley Cluster Fly Control
Cluster Flies are more of a nuisance than a danger, but when a population enters a household to hibernate, they will nestle in obscure places, making their population seem far smaller than it is, only to swarm throughout a household when the weather turns warm enough.
It can be easy to underestimate or dismiss the irritations of living with a cluster fly infestation, especially as they will often enter a house at Christmas time when many home-owners have more pressing concerns, but Bexley Cluster Fly Control are used to operating quickly and unobtrusively, even at peak seasons, making professional cluster fly removal a more convenient solution than it may seem.
Bexley Bed Bug Control & Removal
Bexley Insect Control have a long history of dealing with bed bugs, and the treatment programme we have developed has been shaped by years of experience.
Bed bugs can survive long periods without eating, and can lay numerous eggs that will hatch long after they seem to have disappeared, so their populations will always recover unless comprehensively eliminated.
Our technicians will work with you to create a complete bed bug treatment plan, giving you all the instructions necessary to prevent further infestations, before beginning our specially formulated three-part extermination programme, combining traditional knock-down sprays, growth regulators and Diatomaceous earth to remove the bed bug population and stop any surviving eggs from reaching maturity.
Bexley Flea Control
Fleas carry a variety of diseases and can pass very easily into a household, from pets, fabrics, and other human beings. While small-scale, over-the-counter treatments may work to deal with some of a flea population, they will cannot combat a proper infestation, as they only deal with the fleas themselves rather than systematically eliminating their presence from larvae to adults.
At Bexley Insect Control, flea problems are one of the most common infestations we deal with, and, as with bed bugs, we use a programme that combines the expertise and knowledge of our technicians with the co-operation of customers to ensure that our three-part treatment remains permanent.
Bexley Silverfish Control
It can be hard to identify a silverfish infestation, especially since they live in minuscule crevices and typically only come out to feed at night. However, the damage they can cause to a household is far more noticeable, and they will eat their way through paper, fabrics and even drywall.
There are a number of factors that contribute to a silverfish infestation, often to do with damp conditions in a house itself, and when you make use of our technicians, you not only receive a full treatment programme for the insects themselves, but they will also make recommendations and suggestions for treating the underlying problems, often structural or plumbing related, that attract silverfish.
Bexley Cockroach Control
In addition to being naturally unsanitary, cockroaches can spread multiple diseases, including salmonella, typhoid and dysentery. They can have a very real and immediate impact upon the health of a property’s inhabitants, and if allowed to develop a foothold, cockroach infestations will often spread to neighbouring households.
It is rarely enough to lay out traps or insecticides, as cockroach infestations are often too large for small-scale treatments to have any effect, and they will routinely scatter and find new hiding places inside a house when one has been compromised with insecticide.
Bexley Cockroach Control opt for an intensive treatment, identifying nesting places and thoroughly eliminating the cockroaches within as rapidly as possible to ensure that they have no chance to hide again.
Bexley Spider Control
Recent news stories have alarmed many customers in the Bexley area with stories about poisonous spiders in the UK, particularly the False Widow spider.
At Bexley Spider Control, we aim to provide peace of mind, and our consultations mean that you will always be able to determine whether or not you feel at threat from a spider infestation and whether you want it removed.
Most species of spider in England are harmless, but regardless of whether or not the species in your home is dangerous, we are always able to deal with infestations thoroughly and to ensure that you know all the options available to you before going through with an extermination.
Bexley Ant Control
Although we are most familiar with the Common or Garden ant that makes its nest outside, there are a number of extremely common species, including the Ghost and Feral ant, that will routinely take up dwelling inside of human homes.
Whereas a normal ant nest can usually be destroyed with low-level pesticides or boiling water, these ants build their hives in places that are unreachable, and their populations are too large to deal with without finding and targeting the hive itself.
Our technicians are aware of the conditions that these ants favour and are capable of locating nests even when they are located beneath floorboards or inside walls (as they often are) and are equipped to completely destroy and ant nest and its inhabitants in places that the average home-owner cannot reach.
