Should you be unlucky enough to discover a rat, mouse or cockroach problem in your home you will want fast, expert help to get rid of them – and this is the purpose of pest control.

Pest control companies bring quick and effective solutions to common pests, providing reassurance and action when you need it most.

Working in commercial and domestic environments, pest control companies will be able to tackle unwanted guests using established, safe methods.

How Pest Control works: Act fast

To stop a pest problem in its tracks it is important to take action as quickly as possible – and to this end your first move should always be to seek professional advice from a pest control company.

Promising a swift response, reliable and efficient pest control companies, such as Pest Busters, offer a 24-hour service, 7 days a week.

On arriving at your home or business premises, a pest control technician will investigate the property for signs of a pest problem and identify vulnerable spots.

If it is obvious what the pest is, they will apply specific, targeted solutions that are proven to work and safe to the wider environment.

If there remains an element of doubt over what the pest is – for example, a rat or squirrel, your technician will advise you on the course of action and may need to apply more than one trap.

Pest control solutions

Solutions that pest control companies use could include:

Traps – traps will be used to catch rodents that have made their home within your property. The type of rodent will dictate what size of trap is used.

Fly screens/ electric fly killers – these are essential in hygienic areas such as those used for food preparation. While the traps will deal with an existing fly infestation, screens will help to guard against future problems.

Insecticide – Insect infestations can be incredibly difficult to deal with and a thorough all-encompassing approach is needed to deal with the problem thoroughly rather than risk a recurrence.

Insecticidal dusts and gels – depending on the type of insect that is causing your pest control problem, it might be that bait, dust or gel needs to be laid down to resolve the issue.

Smoke/ fogging – Again dependent on the problem at hand, fogging an area may be the best solution to the insect problem that you have. It is vital that procedures such as this are carried out professionally to maintain safe practices.

Wasps’ nest removal – Using specialist equipment pest control teams can remove wasps’ nests. This is not recommended by anyone other than a professional due to the risks involved. While wasps’ nest can be removed the rules are different for bees’ nests so always seek advice.

Having taken the appropriate action for the pest problem that you have, the pest control team may then schedule an appointment to return to check that the problem has been dealt with and to offer further advice.

Pest control experts will also offer advice on how to protect your home from pest problems in the future.
