Pest control

Pest control relates to the regulation of pests, usually because they are having an adverse effect on someone’s health or the environment. There are a range of pests that you would want dealing with, and there are various treatments depending on the species.

Destroying breeding grounds

Pests such as rats and cockroaches will be attracted to garbage and sewers, so eliminating these areas are the best way to control an infestation. Proper waste management and drainage is needed, especially in communities that have a communal waste collection area.

There is also LED lighting available which can restrict and disrupt insects breeding, so look to having this installed to control the area.

Poisoned bait

Bait is one of the most common ways to control the population of rats and a method chosen from specialist pest control experts. Whilst it’s not as successful in food source areas, it’s popular in controlling house and garage infestations.

Birds that threaten crops, caterpillars, fruit flies, slugs and crabs are also targeted with poisoned bait. The only problem with the method is that other animals feeding on the carcass can be poisoned too, so extreme care must be taken.

Field burning

It’s not uncommon to have fields burned after a sugar cane harvest. This is done to kill off any insects or eggs that may be left in the fields.


Traps are readily available on the market and ensure homeowners can remove mice or rats from homes, garages and sheds. Identifying the rodent is the first necessity to establish which trap is needed. The snap trap remains the most widely used around the country and uses a trigger to strike the rodent behind the head.

Space fumigation

It’s not uncommon for pets to become infested with fleas and often the products and treatment won’t eliminate all of the eggs in your home, ensuring a continued cycle. Your best bet here is to fumigate certain rooms in your home with a specialist in the field. This type of pest control targets all life stages.

Energy Performance of Houses

The below data indicates the energy performance of houses in Uk. Energy ratings vary from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating factors heavily when you want to sell your house, as possible buyers will see just how much they're most likely to be spending on their home heating bills. Home upgrades such as insulation help to substantially boost a home's EPC rating.
