Pest Control:

This time of year is very important for the pest control industry, it makes the absolute polar opposite of our summer season. Where wasps and bees are extremely prevalent in the summer months, during the winter holidays we tend to see a vast number of rodents problems. Even more so in domestic properties than usual, this in part is due to the changing weather, nesting habits and the increased number of stored foods in the run up to winter festivities. This can cause havoc with both the public and commercial properties. Here at PEST UK we pride ourselves in maintaining full hour time slots for every customer, despite the busy holiday period. As well as this we are able to remain open most bank holidays.

Going into the new year we can expect to see a change in the makeup of pest control jobs we are experiencing. While the pest control load will begin to further steadily increase for the insect populations we can expect to see very little change for the rodent population. At this point in time it is difficult to decide whether this summer will be a busy period for wasps and bees. It is still dependent on the state of the weather in coming spring months. If the weather becomes too warm too early, as we have seen a very mild winter so far, it can lead to an interruption in the hibernation period of the queens and this can prematurely lead to the death of the nest. However, if the spring becomes to wet, windy or cold this too can damage the new grubs before they are able to fully mature.

Ultimately, in the new year we are hoping to see favourable conditions so as increase our rodent pest control work. The weather is a major factor. The mild Winter so far means that the rat, mouse and squirrel population in the countryside is high but as yet they are under no pressure to venture into buildings. This will change once the weather gets colder.
