Description

From veiled hunters to thousandleggers, there are many disparate vermin that can breach your residence and garden, comprising of aphids, bedbugs, hornets, centipedes, crickets, earwigs, fleas, mosquitoes, silverfish, termites, ticks, wasps, weevils, and all types of other mites and insects.

Where do they live?

There is a vast range of vermin in the UK, and an equally diverse range of habitats where they tend to live. Aphids are usually found on young plants, bedbugs prefer multi-room dwellings, and wasps usually nest in eaves and decks. Meanwhile, centipedes usually inhabit dark cellars, thousand-leggers prefer heaps of decayed leaves, and woodworms look for decaying wood.

Life cycle

The life cycle of different pests varies greatly, depending on the species. For example, aphids will usually hatch from eggs in early spring, while bedbugs will lay hundreds of eggs over the course of their lifespan. Hornets will build large nests in spring, while mosquitoes tend to lay eggs in standing water. Fleas will lay eggs in fur, carpets and bedding, while silverfish reproduce by laying eggs in damp spaces.

Why do I have these pests?

The presence of pests in your home or garden is usually due to environmental factors, such as moisture, temperature, and food availability. The presence of organic debris can also attract pests, as well as any cracks or crevices in the walls of your home. Poor hygiene can also attract pests, as well as leaving food uncovered or exposed.

How can I prevent these pests from invading?

There are a variety of ways to prevent pests from invading your home or garden. One of the most important steps is to regularly inspect for signs of infestation, such as droppings, nests, or unexplained damage to plants or furniture. You should also regularly clean and remove any organic debris from your property, as this is often a source of food for pests. Additionally, you should seal any cracks or crevices in your walls and windows, as these can provide entry points for pests.

You should also reduce the amount of moisture in your home or garden, as this can provide a favourable environment for pests. This can be done by ensuring that all leaks and plumbing issues are fixed, and that any standing water is removed. Finally, you should regularly check your furniture, carpets, and bedding for signs of infestation, and take steps to control any existing infestations.

    We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

    Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

    Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

    We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
