There’s nothing more disturbing than finding a pest infestation in your UK home. Pests are very unhygienic, and you shouldn’t suffer in silence if you are experiencing a pest infestation. There are lots of different types of pest control used in the UK that you can choose from, and here we’re going to tell you about a few of them.
Probably the most common and recognised type of pest control is the use of traps. Traps can range from just fly paper to something far more complex involving bait. This type of pest control can be used to treat a lot of pest infestations, from rodent control problems to fleas.
Traps have to be placed correctly in your home for them to work properly. Also, if you have set up traps you must remember to check them regularly to remove any pests that may have been caught.
The most effective and widely used type of pest control is the use of pesticides and rodenticides. They are very reliable, and can be used to tackle a whole host of rodent and insect infestations. If you want to opt for using chemicals to treat a pest control problem, you should always contact your local pest controller for safe chemical pest control treatments. Never choose to use over the counter pest control products.
When a serious infestation is discovered, fumigation may be the only type of pest control effective enough to treat it. Large amounts of pesticides are sprayed into the home over a 2 to 3 day period, which kills pests at all different stages of life. The downside of fumigation is that you can’t stay in your home whilst the treatment is happening.
A completely chemical free type of pest control used more and more in the UK is heat treatment. This method of pest control is used mainly for the treatment of insect infestations such as bed bugs and fleas.
The high temperatures used in heat treatments kill insects at all stages of life, and is the perfect option for people who aren’t keen on using chemicals in their home.
