Cheshire West and Chester
In a picturesque and historic borough such as Cheshire West and Chester, with borders on beautiful countryside and farmland and also to the sea, you can imagine that there will be many and varied pests that may wish to make their way, often inadvertently, into your home or business.
Depending on the time of year, the main pests we can expect in Cheshire West and Chester are:
- Rats & Mice
- Bees and Wasps
- Fleas, bedbugs and other biting insects
Rats and Mice
These are year round pests who venture near or into our homes for different reasons throughout the year. In warmer months they are tempted near us by abundant food sources, smells from our bins, etc. In colder times they are seeking shelter and with natural food sources becoming scarce they are looking for any food scraps we may have – even stealing food we put out on our bird feeders.
Rats and mice are very destructive pests, known for their gnawing of anything and everything – including electrical wiring. They are also carriers of many diseases.
Bees and Wasps
Mostly seen spring to autumn their life span can be seen to increase with our milder winters. Whilst not a pest to most of us as they go about their business, the minute they decide to make their home near, on or in, your property then they instantly become a danger to you and your family as they become territorial about their homes and of course their young.
Cockroaches and Other Insects
Infestations of insects can occur at any time. Cockroaches are similar to rats in that they are scavengers for food and warmth and can fit into the smallest of spaces. Its true what they say – where there is one there are many more!
Fleas and the like can be brought into your home by your beloved pet and can be very difficult to get rid of once they have arrived – the eggs can live in soft furnishings for as long as a year with no animal to live off.
Bedbugs can be brought home in your suitcase from travels to hotels and B&B’s – which may have appeared clean enough. If an infestation has not been properly dealt with then it becomes your issue when you arrive home.
