Why Proper Pest Control May Mean More Than One Treatment


When you have a domestic or commercial pest control problem, it may only take one treatment to get rid of it. If you are dealing with a mouse infestation, this is normally just a onetime treatment and pest control problem is resolved.

However, some pests are a lot harder to get rid of. Pests like fleas, ticks, bed bugs and wasps need a higher level of treatment to eliminate them completely. Afterwards, more treatment may be needed to prevent the problem from returning (this is especially true for pests like birds and squirrels).

Because of this, when you contact a professional pest control company, you need to make sure you seek out the best advice for your particular type of pest problem. A trustworthy and reputable pest control expert will visit your property and conduct a survey to see what the problem is.

Here are some recommended treatments from pest control professionals based on the type of pest infestation you might have.

  • Rodents – The humane way to do it is to trap them and then set them free away from your property. One treatment will do the trick, but you need to make sure rodents can’t access your property again by blocking off entry points.

Fleas and ticks – These pests take a bit more effort to get rid of, and are normally treated with chemicals. This could be in the form of a gas or spray that kills the pests on contact.
Flying insects – Hives are normally removed, but not destroyed. You should never attempt to move a bee or wasps nest by yourself. Always seek out professional help.
Woodworm – One treatment may be enough for woodworm, but ongoing treatment is needed. Woodworm treatments are always best left to the experts.
Other pests – Birds, squirrels and moles are all pests that cause problems in the UK. The main way you can control ‘free’ pests is by deterring and preventing them. If they want to get into your property, they will do so by any means possible. Many of these pests are protected by law, such as birds, so you have to seek professional advice before doing anything about them.
