Spring is the season when nature reawakens, and it signals the time to procreate and form a new colony or nest. Many people discover that a small infestation can multiply surprisingly quickly. Rodents take 10-12 weeks to mature so this potentially means that a new generation is born every 3-4 months! Wasp colonies can house 25000-30000 inhabitants throughout spring, summer and autumn; the average lifespan is a few weeks. That said, 100 feisty wasps defending their space or descending on your barbeque could seem like thousands.
Pest control Reading specialists including Pest Control Berkshire’s team understand that adverse weather can affect how visible pests are to us and their rate of breeding. A wet spring could mean that pests like honeybees find locating food extremely difficult and a colder summer can lead to a decrease in the beetle population. A period of warmth between cold snaps can confuse creatures like butterflies so they appear too early, cannot find food and survival and breeding are hampered. Bumblebees have adapted to our intriguing mix of weather, so they suffer less.
A welcoming warm spring and summer results in a steady increase of pests and the availability of food to forage for is at optimum levels.
Pest control Reading specialists also appreciate that a “one approach fits all pests” solution doesn’t exist and that some pests should be relocated rather than eradicated when they become a problem.
For example, the UK rat population currently stands at approximately 15 million. The best way for Berkshire pest controllers to manage this sizeable problem is to eradicate the rat infestations when contacted by commercial or private property owners. Rodents are clever and loyal, but they won’t obligingly relocate when willed to do so by humans.
In contrast, bees and wasps, including hornets, perform essential tasks which maintain the health of our ecosystem by cross pollinating and pest control. If the Berkshire pest controllers eradicated their nest populations this would harm the ecosystem and the benefits we derive from it. It’s estimated that to replicate the activity of bees and wasps nationwide would cost £12 billion per annum. This is why they should be relocated to a more convenient location, away from harm and so they can’t frustrate humans, rather than annihilated.
Birds can be humanely repelled using bio-acoustics, netting, spike or mesh products so they move to another location and this is far superior, and safer, than taking pot-shots at them.
Berkshire pest controllers have access to scientifically proven treatments which are not available in the public domain, offer guarantees on pest control measures, are trained, qualified and experienced and know how to operate safely.
Many pests pose health risks. For example, rodents and birds can carry harmful bacteria and novices may forget that bees and wasps sting when they feel under threat, so trying to take on a nest’s population can prove painful.
The inexperienced person also decides to kill every pest they encounter but the wiser aim could be to relocate. Place your trust in efficient service and cost-effective solutions from Berkshire pest controllers.
