Some common Insect Pests that we frequently deal with …
There more than 4000 beetle species in the UK. Carpet Beetles, Hide Beetles and Larder Beetles are amongst some of the most common pests. Carpet beetles are a particular indoor pest. They are very destructive to woollen items, furs, leathers, fabric furnishings and carpets, but can be effectively tackled with professional strength insecticides.
It’s not the moths themselves but their larvae which are the issue as they can feed upon dry stored materials and fabric and can cause significant (and expensive) damage. There are over 2,000 UK moth species but four are a particular problem indoors– the brown house moth, the white shouldered clothes moth, the common clothes moth and the case bearing clothes moth. Can be dealt with traps, monitoring and heat.
Unbelievably, there are believed to more than 7,000 fly species in the UK. Cluster flies are a particular pest as they cluster up indoors in their thousands in winter months. We do however treat many kinds of fly problems including house fly and fruit fly infestations.
There are some 650 spider species in the UK of which only about 12 are believed to bite, including the false widow spider (pictured). Common species found around the house include the house spider and daddy longlegs spider.
Mosquitos and Midges
Both of these biting insects depend on water and their presence indoors may mean some attention to proofing is needed. It’s the females that eat your blood, but in the UK they are not thought to transmit serious disease.
