Although we obviously offer Manchester pest control services and pests provide us with our business, the more you know about how to prevent pests the better. After all, there is nothing worse than having critters take over your home… or garden for that matter. In fact, that is how many of them get into your home to begin with – via your garden. If you want to avoid calling out Manchester pest control experts then you need to sort your garden out before anything else.
Now, the first thing to remember is that it does not matter what size your garden is. Pests will love an acre as much as they love a metre of space. As such, you have to be prepared to sort out your space effectively. You must keep it as uncluttered as possible and maintain it to make sure that fleas, rats and other pests avoid it. The following points will help you:
· Clean up all rubbish and make sure that your bin always has a lid on
· Keep grass short to avoid giving pests hiding places
· Use bird tables if putting out food rather than placing it on the floor
· Tidy up any mess, old furniture etc and keep all spaces clean
With these points in mind, you have a good place to start when it comes to making your garden a Manchester pest control free zone and keeping it that way.

We all love the warmer weather and the sound of kids playing in the garden seems to lift everyones spirits, the only problem is that we are not the only ones that come alive in the warmer weather. Many of our garden ‘pests’ also come alive, Wasps and Hornets love the warmer weather they can often be seen buzzing in our gardens looking for the perfect place to build their nests.
We automatically know when a bee or wasp flies into our garden, as all the children will start to scream and shout as they run into the house, if the Queen finds a hole into our home or shed, within minutes she’ll soon start to build her nest.

Britain has always been know as a pet loving nation, keeping domestic animals such as cats, dogs, and hamsters. Some of us prefer exotic pets like snakes, chinchillas and tropical spiders. No matter which type of pet we keep, many of these animals need a great amount of looking after such as washing, grooming and cleaning. If this is neglected then you are not only putting your family pet in extreme danger but also health of your family.
Pets have a habit of collecting parasites on their bodies, parasites such as Ctenocephalides felis on cats and Ctenocephalides canis on dogs, or more commonly known as fleas. If left unattended a flea infestation will cause great discomfort to all that come in contact with the infested animal.

Not long now till the weather starts to warm up and we all know what that means, the return of flying insects such as wasps, bees and flies and then there’s the crawling insects such as ants, earwigs and beetles. Many of these insects are not poisonous to humans but they do bring with them a fear of contamination especially when food is involved.
When the weather starts to heat up some home owners may take the steps to prevent an infestation of ants by purchasing some low quality pest control methods from the local hardware shop. This may turn out to be a waste of time and money as many of the ingredients used are not strong enough to kill all the pests.
