Local Pest Control Near Me – Staying Open During The COVID-19 Lockdown
Local pest control is the last thing you think of during lockdown, we’re all spending more time in our homes than ever before. Many people are slowing down in their fast-paced lifestyles. That means plenty of time to spot problems that might have gone unnoticed before.
As a result, our office has had lots of calls about local pest control issues. Noises in the loft/walls. Sightings of rodents in and around the garden or external areas. Droppings in garages/outbuildings.
Most surprising of all is insect infestations that until now have gone under the radar. We’ve received calls from people with SPI (stored product insects) problems in their kitchens that they hadn’t even noticed before.
Bumbling into Springtime Pest Control
As the Spring weather warms up, the seasonal life of the pest control industry changes quickly. The long dark winter is full of call-outs for opportunist rodents taking shelter wherever they can. Now it’s the season of new life.
One of the first to appear is the queen Bumblebee, already fertilized from last year and on the hunt for food and shelter. Once she finds a suitable nest (normally under sheds or in bird boxes), she’ll forage hard to provide enough feed for all the emerging grubs. When the first generation of workers leave the nest, she’ll stay there and nurture future bee populations.
Bumblebees are harmless. They don’t need to be eradicated unless they pose a serious risk to human life. This means we’ll make every effort to relocate the nest first.

However, in the event that you have inquisitive kids, pets or just truly would prefer not to be stung, you should straight away contact your local beekeeper. They will have the option to conceivably move it. Removing nests on your own isn’t suggested, particularly as there are various kinds of nests, which need various techniques for expulsion.

Nests become a nuisance, when the mating ritual begins and flying ants take over your property. The fertilised female ants fly away.
