Beetle Control Treatments
There are many species of beetles that can cause problems in your home. Correct identification is key to resolving the problem. The most common species we are called to deal with are Carpet Beetles Which are often confused with bed bugs as the fine hairs on the larvae can cause a skin reaction. The adult Carpet Beetle lays up to 40 eggs at a time in natural fibres, such as curtains and carpets. Control is simple it takes less than an hour to treat a typical domestic carpet beetle infestation.
Bed Bug Control Treatments
Bed Bugs are generally introduced into a property via luggage or personal belongings that have become infested elsewhere usually whilst on holiday or while staying in B&B's, places that have been traditionally associated with an increased risk for housing Bed Bugs due to their higher rate of turnover and continual influx of temporary residents.
Bed bug treatments involve the application of a carefully selected residual, non repellent professional grade insecticide to areas where bed bugs may be hiding. The whole process takes between one and three hours per room and is 100% successful.
I have been developed a Bed Bug heat treatment method that enables us to control Bed Bugs without the use of pesticides. If you have been researching Bed Bug treatment methods you may have read about heat treatments that involve heating the whole room to above 45°C.

Flea Control Treatments
Adult fleas live as parasites on warm-blooded mammals such as cats, dogs and sometimes humans. Although fleas are identified specifically as cat, dog or human fleas, these creatures are by no means found exclusively on their chosen hosts. The treatment of Fleas is a simple process that involves the use of a combination of insecticide formulations.
Mouse Control Treatments
House mice are considered the most troublesome and economically damaging rodent pests in the UK. infestations of mice in Yorkshire are on the increase.

We always use the safest and quickest method to control mice within domestic properties. This involves the use of traps and or anticoagulant poisons.

Rat Control Treatments
Rats are the most destructive pests known to man and are also the known source of numerous diseases which can afflict humans and domestic animals. Rats can contaminate food and cause extensive damage to buildings. Care should be taken when undertaking rodent control as rat poison will not just kill rats. Traps should be protected so as not to catch wild birds and domestic animals. We can quickly and safely eradicate even the most severe domestic Rat infestation.
I operate a highly skilled and humane Rabbit control service. 100% control in a garden is possible. However on larger areas of land, because of the size of the effort required, and the Rabbit's capacity for population increase, Total eradication is often impractical. Our aim when working larger areas is to reduce numbers to levels at which damage is economically acceptable.
Squirrel Control / Trapping
Squirrels often gain access through a breach in the roof or under the eaves of the property. Even a small hole can be exploited by the squirrel.
