Both rural and urban properties can attract infestations of any one of the common pests found in the UK. Residential, commercial, and industrial properties are all at risk, but there are steps you can take to keep pests out of your property. Even if you do everything right, you may still find yourself dealing with an infestation.
Mice are among the most common pests in the UK. They can survive on nothing more than crumbs and food debris, and they reproduce at a prodigious rate. Mice will thrive in any environment where they have reliable access to food, water, and shelter. They also carry diseases and cause damage to property.
Thanks to the rise of international travel, bed bugs have become a much more common problem than they once were. Travellers often carry bed bugs unwittingly and transfer them to fabrics, especially beds, that they come into contact with. Bed bugs can be particularly insidious because they lay their eggs deep within fabrics. Even if you get rid of the bugs themselves, you still need to deal with the eggs if you don't want the infestation to return.
One of the most common birds in the UK, pigeons cause numerous issues. Their droppings are acidic, meaning they will eat through paint, stone, and other materials over time. Pigeons can also cause damage to properties by landing heavily on loose tiles. Like all birds, pigeons are protected in the UK. You need a pest control professional to take care of any pigeon problems on your property.
Moths themselves don't cause any problems, other than being a nuisance. But their larvae will eat through various types of fabric, leaving behind the tell-tale holes that we associate with a moth infestation. Before we can treat a moth infestation, we first need to ascertain which type of moth you have in your property. There are several common types of moth in the UK and they require different approaches.
Foxes are beautiful creatures, but they cause myriad problems for homeowners. If you keep chickens or other outdoor pets on your property, foxes will make short work of them. They have even been known to attack children in rare cases. Foxes also pose a unique threat to local biodiversity and can carry diseases.
The sight of cockroaches can be alarming, but they are more common than many people realise. There are many misconceptions about cockroaches and the infestations they cause. Cockroaches don't carry diseases, but they spend most of their time in sewers and other areas that are full of bacteria and germs. If a cockroach makes their way into your food, they can spread them to you.
Rats are similar to mice in many ways, but they are much bigger and more problematic. Whereas mice are timid, rats can be aggressive and have been known to attack pets and people. Their strong teeth enable them to gnaw through even the toughest materials.
Given that ants are everywhere, many people overlook their presence in their property until they come across a full-blown nest. There are ants in just about every home and property, so their presence doesn't necessarily mean you have an infestation. However, if you have leftover food and exposed bins lying around, these can attract ants. If you suspect an infestation, you should check outdoor areas carefully for signs of a nest.
Fleas are another pest that can be seriously annoying. Fleas lay their eggs in the fur of household pets and can establish themselves very quickly. Usually, by the time you notice the signs of a flea infestation, they are already well-established in your property and pets. Treating a flea infestation involves killing the mature specimens and ensuring they haven't left any eggs or larvae behind.
Wasps aren't usually dangerous, but they can be in certain circumstances. If you suspect you have a wasp nest on your property, you should contact a pest control professional immediately. One of the few scenarios in which wasps can be dangerous is when their nest is under threat. Don't be tempted to try and deal with the problem on your own.
