With sleigh bells’ ringing, jingle bells a-rockin’ and with a certain Father Christmas making his way downtown, the festive season really is in full swing come this time of year. With lists of names to buy presents for along with food and drink to purchase, it can be easy to lose track of what it is your supposed to be doing!
One thing you may not have considered is the risk of unwanted visitors this Christmas. Whilst most people associate pests with the summer sunshine, the warmth and shelter of our homes become a much more attractive refuge for pesky lodgers at this time of year.
At PestBusters, we specialise in pest control in Birmingham and around the West Midlands and pride ourselves in the high standard of service we provide. Working both domestically and commercially, we understand the discreet and quick-action needed when dealing with pests. With years of experience dealing with domestic pests and large scale vermin, we aim to work efficiently and effectively to ensure that your problem is not only resolved, but extinguished in a controlled and professional manner.
Most pests are looking for warmth and shelter during the cold winter months which draws them towards our homes and residences.
Mice and rats can build nests in the smallest of nooks and freely roam your homes at night for food and warmth. A sure sign of their presence includes droppings or urine as well as gnaw marks in food, packaging or even surfaces.
Bed bugs are also rife around this time of year as they look to feed in order to survive the winter. Bed bugs are blood sucking insects and live in the folds of mattresses and bed frames; bites, blood spots or dead bugs are sure signs of an infestation.
But what can you do to protect your home from pests?
• Tightly seal any entry points including gaps, cracks or crevices.
• Clean your house and follow good sanitation such as washing up, cleanings surfaces, sealing leftovers and taking out waste/rubbish
• Trim branches from surrounding plants, bushes and tree to keep insects at bay.

Wasps can be an intolerable and dangerous pest if they decide to nest somewhere in your home, like your loft, garage or shed. So it’s useful to know when they are likely to start nesting and how the nesting and hibernation cycle can be affected by weather. So here at PestBusters we have put together a wasp fact file to help you know when to look out for wasps and their nests.
Late September time is when wasps nest reach their maximum size and the new Queen and male wasps are produced. Nests can produce around 100 Queen Wasps every year. Mid to late April is when we begin to see wasps again as the re surface in search of food. For the first few weeks the Queen wasps are expected to fend for themselves feeding and gathering nest building materials before the worker wasps begin to join in the nest building process.
So How Does Weather Affect This Process?
The weather plays a big part in how successful the wasp season will be. If we take this year for example – wasps need a fairly cold winter to keep them deep in hibernation and ultimately safe so the freezing temperatures we endured last winter definitely helped there. When spring arrives the wasps need warm dry weather so there is plenty of food available. Our Spring started out fairly warm but then we suffered that very wet period meaning the wasps would have struggled to find food and gather nest materials. The continued mild and very wet summer we have had would have hindered the wasps’ nest building even more.
What to Look Out For:
The wasps will have been steadily building their nest throughout the summer months so this is when you should be looking out for groups of wasps around your home or garden. If they are building a nest in your loft or shed you will see them coming and going all the time taking materials to the nest site.
Around this time of year the nest will be nearing full capacity and eggs will be being laid so it’s a good time to keep a good look out for wasp nests, these won’t always be visible if you have a wasp nest you will see a constant stream of wasps coming in and out of a hole in your wall or a gap in your fascias.
