What Pests Can We Help Get Rid Of?

The city of Edinburgh is becoming large and sprawling with a lot of areas of residential and commercial buildings, both really old and extremely contemporary. As pests prefer to live close to humans we see several pests that like to try and exploit our homes and businesses.

Safeguard your premises from unwanted guests. From Wasp Nests to Bed Bugs, from a mouse sighting to a plague of Cockroaches or rats, pest technicians have the skills as well as knowledge to deal with the removal of an infestation or issue to confirm the safety of your family or business.

Common pests found in Portobello and the Scottish East Coast area include:

  • Rats – When it comes to pest problems with Rats, Portobello as a city, with its network of very old buildings linked by subterranean voids tunnels is especially risky. We’re here to safeguard your family or company reputation from the health risk related to a rodent or rat infestation. If you are suffering from the experience of a Rat problem contact us today and have a specialist pest controller attend now. Signs of a Rat issue include sightings, a smell, droppings, smear stains and damage to structures or materials from gnawing.
  • Mice – Portobello has a history of significant and well established mouse infestations. The very old buildings with their internally connected cavity walls and voids give ample entry points for a mice issue to manifest rapidly. Signs of mice resemble that of Rats though the droppings are relatively smaller. Mice can gain entry through gaps as tiny as 6mm so can easily get entry through even the tiniest of gaps. We’re ready to provide an immediate reaction to deal with mouse activity and protect your property.
  • Common Garden Ants – This Ant will most likely build nests in the ground outdoors but the worker ants will regularly enter our businesses and homes to look for sugary food residues to help support the colony and its development. Most DIY treatments for Ants are actually ineffective against these insects. Get in touch with the experts now for more information or to solve the problem.
  • Wasp Nest Removal – Portobello. Commonly known as a Byke, a Wasps nest can be made in an attic, wall cavities, subfloor or maybe in the soil because they are able to exploit several different areas in a home or other building. We often suggest leaving a Wasp Nest removal to the skilled specialists with the knowledge and expertise to effectively and safely solve this Wasp Nest pest problem.
  • Bees – These essential insects are actually reducing in numbers and should not be managed unless they present a direct health and safety hazard. They’ll hardly ever sting and must be let to remain at all costs to help them to pollinate our plants and flowers.
  • Dermestes Beetles – This class consists of species such as Hide Beetle and Larder Beetle and is among the most typical pest infestation types that we handle on a day to day basis. Usually found in bathrooms, kitchens as well as living rooms especially at the wall/floor corner of carpets or wooden floors.
  • Varied Carpet Beetle – Often found on the window sills in carpeted rooms where they feed on any hair, skin, dirt or food debris that accumulate in the carpet fibers.
  • Cockroaches – In a lot of cases, a Cockroach infestation will happen in the humid and warm places of a home or building. In the UK we mostly experience German Cockroaches & Oriental Cockroaches.
  • Bed Bugs – These biting insects can cause considerable agony and seriously impact the reputation of hospitality businesses. These parasites feed on human blood and require only the presence of a host to thrive. A Bed Bug infestation necessitates a high level of skill and knowledge to properly eliminate. A Bed Bug treatment process must include either a normal insecticidal application of 4 or perhaps more visits or heat treatment. Incomplete or incorrect eradication of Bedbugs could be a costly mistake. Get the proper tips about precisely how to eliminate Bed Bugs today.
  • Fleas – Cat Fleas are some of the most common species of biting insect that is actually seen in commercial and domestic buildings. Infesting not just homes with a pet present, it’s easy to pick up Fleas in everal public spaces and bring them home. They will mainly bite on the arms as well as legs and often in a straight line of three bites along the seam of clothing.
  • Flies / Flying Insects – There are many types of Flying Insects which will affect us in the UK including Blue Bottles, Green Bottles, Lesser House Fly, House Fly, Fruit Flies, Cluster Flies, Drain Fly and more.
  • Moths – You will find many moth species that affect us in the UK which mainly fall into the category of textile pests which have an effect on clothing or even stored merchandise insects which affect a few raw or perhaps milled food ingredients.
  • Grey Squirrels – Not dangerous if they stay outside. However, classified as vermin when getting into our homes by climbing walls and getting in the attic they can eaisly result in a great deal of damage. Grey Squirrels, like all rodents, have to chew continually to keep their teeth| at a manageable length. They do not care if that’s a roof beam, a water hose or even and electric cable.
  • Rabbits – Requires the professional skill of our wildlife trained technicians.
  • Moles – With restrictions to conventional methods of gassing it’s currently often considerably more effective to trap for Moles to protect against harm to ground or risk to livestock.
  • Pigeons – Techniques of control consist of trapping & shooting where adequate. The more successful preventative method of bird proofing like the fitting of spikes or netting will provide long-term benefits.
  • Gulls (Seagulls) – Effective control of hostile behaviour during their breeding season is important to protect the health & safety of individuals close by. But, with a particular licence necessary for any Gull control, it’s now more vital than ever to get the proper advice and guidance from the specialists.
