Greenwich Bee Control & Bee’s Nest Removal
Although people usually imagine that bees prefer to steer clear of human habitations, migrating swarms will often build their hives in attics and gardens without warning.
It is always possible to leave a nest where it is, but it can be difficult to avoid provoking them, especially if there are children on a property who are not aware of their dangers.
Bees generally only react when aggravated, and so our technicians specialise in techniques that allow for the removal of a hive without destroying it and its inhabitants. Greenwich Bee Control find that this is usually a far more preferable option to typical, more destructive methods.
Greenwich Wasp Control & Wasp’s Nest Removal
Professional help is very important when dealing with wasp nests, and many wasp-related accidents and injuries occur when people try to deal with them using commercial products and dubious advice from the internet. If a product is available for use without a license, it usually means that is unable to do much more than irritate a wasp hive and make it more prone to defensive swarming. We use professional-grade Bendiocarb, which must be used in high concentrations and with extreme care and is thus unavailable to unqualified persons.
Greenwich Wasp Control’s technicians are specially accredited to use it while still causing minimal disturbance to households and the environment at large.
Greenwich Hornet Control
Hornets are immensely difficult to live with, and even more difficult to remove. They are very hardy, they can withstand chemicals that other insects cannot, and their sting is among the most painful of all the insects we deal with. It is vital to understand the dangers posed by hornets, and our technicians’ experience of dealing with them has taught us that they require an extremely methodical and safety-conscious approach.
Our Bendiocarb treatment for hornets is even more intensive than that we use for wasps, and we will never finish an elimination service without making sure that all members of the hive have been destroyed.
Greenwich Cluster Fly Control
Human homes are full of cracks and crevices that cluster flies find ideal for hibernating in during the colder months, which makes them hard to find and which makes it easy to underestimate the number of flies nesting inside your house.
Fortunately, they are not as resilient as other insects and we deploy a very effective, simple knock-down spray to eliminate them, so the trouble of getting in a technician will always be less than allowing them to survive hibernation and cluster around the house.
Greenwich Bed Bug Control & Removal
Bed bugs pose unique challenges to exterminators, not least because many people are unaware of how persistent they are and how severe and infestation can be. Preventative measures such as mattress protectors and laundering fail to take into account that bed bugs are not confined to mattresses alone, and live in clothes, between floorboards and underneath furniture, along with many of their eggs.
Greenwich Bed bug Control’s treatment concentrates on permanently stopping infestations, using growth regulators to stop bed bugs from breeding. We recognise the difficulty of operating in the same place where people sleep, and our technicians are trained to co-ordinate their efforts with residents, as well as using natural substances like Diatomaceous earth, which people find easier to deal with than purely chemical treatments.
Greenwich Flea Control
Although mostly regarded as an irritation, fleas spread diseases and can act as a carrier for tapeworm, which can be unpleasant for humans and result in expensive trips to the vet for pet-owners. As with bed bugs, people often underestimate the flea presence in their home, as their droppings and eggs can stick to any surface and remain hidden for a long time.
Our technicians use a multi-part treatment programme similar to that used with bed bugs, and we like to combine our own chemical treatments with the efforts of customers to maximise the effect on fleas.
Greenwich Silverfish Control
You may not instantly recognise a silverfish infestation, and it is often possible to attribute the holes they eat in wallpaper and clothes to everyday wear-and-tear. The result is that silverfish can establish a large and deeply-rooted population before a home-owner has realised they even have a problem.
Once discovered, you should alert a professional as soon as possible. Often, it isn’t enough to simply eliminate the silverfish themselves, since they will return if the damp conditions they favour aren’t remedied, so Greenwich Silverfish control is dedicated to providing you with the necessary information for identifying the causes and solutions to your problem in the long term.
Greenwich Cockroach Control
Cockroaches come in multiple varieties, including Oriental, American and German cockroaches, and they share a common set of characteristics, and they all have the capacity to spread diseases including salmonella and typhoid fever. While their famous reputation for surviving nuclear fallout may be exaggerated, they are certainly among the toughest insects to get rid of, and they constantly develop resistances to traditional pesticides.
Greenwich Cockroach Control doesn’t accept any half-measures when it comes to cockroach extermination, applying lethal professional-grade insecticides directly to cockroach hiding places, and we find our customers prefer our direct, rapid-response method to more long-winded trapping and baiting techniques.
Greenwich Spider Control
Warnings of poisonous spiders in England and the UK have been on the rise, and incidents of hospitalisation rose 25% in the last year alone, so Greenwich Spider Control is fielding more calls than ever regarding potential risks and dangers. We provide a consultation service to identify whether there is any real threat posed by a spider problem, and we will always be straightforward with customers.
Our long experience has shown us that almost all spider infestations in England are little more than an irritation, and we are glad to put customers’ fears to rest, but should a spider infestation prove to be genuinely dangerous, or simply unpleasant, we will always respond with the same level of care and professionalism we do when dealing with other insects.
Greenwich Ant Control
Despite their exotic-sounding names, Ghost, Pharaoh and Feral ants are extremely common species in England, and they are known for building their nests inside human homes. While we naturally deal with all varieties of ants, the most persistent and difficult to deal with infestations come from these species, whose hives are often built around cavities within walls and thus hard to locate.
Our policy is always to bring our treatments directly to the hives themselves, rather than relying on stopgap measures, and our technicians are trained to track down colonies and use special equipment to apply insecticidal treatments even to the most well-hidden ant populations.
