Pest problems we deal with
Mice and rats are prolific breeders year-round. The seek food and shelter in homes, restaurants, shops and offices, getting inside via the tiniest cracks or holes. Drains provide a perfect living environment for rats and they climb up through the pipes to enter a building.
Flies and cockroaches enter homes and business premises during the spring and summer in search of food. They are prolific breeders so an invasion of a couple of these pests soon becomes a huge infestation.
Bed bugs are very difficult to get rid of. People bring them into homes, offices and public places on their clothes or in their luggage. They can also be hidden in furnishings and clothing imported from abroad.
Fleas are brought inside by cats and dogs, and occasionally by humans on their clothes. They live in carpets and only move from the carpet to feed on animals or humans, leaving an itchy bite.
The larvae of clothes moths and carpet moths are massively destructive. A female moth lays up to 50 eggs which become larvae after a few days. They feed on wool and silk carpets, curtains, rugs and clothes. They are a problem year-round as centrally heated homes keep them active during the winter.
Birds such as gulls, pigeons and house martins roost and nest on buildings. They cause damage to roofs, solar panels and air conditioning units. Nesting materials block guttering and chimneys. They produce large amounts of droppings that smell unpleasant and are unsightly, carry diseases and corrode metals, stone and brick.
Solar panel proofing is a long-term solution to prevent pigeons roosting and nesting under the panels, preventing them causing damage that reduces their effectiveness.
Rodent proofing prevents rats, mice, squirrels, glis glis accessing a building. Ultimately it saves costs by stopping repeated call outs to pest control technicians to get rid of infestations.
Squirrels and glis glis find their way into loft spaces and cause lots of noise and damage by tearing up insulation and gnawing timber, pipes and wiring.
Wasps and honey bees often nest in chimneys, roof spaces and other cavities within buildings. Colonies can consist of thousands which are very noisy and if they’re disturbed they will sting.
Ants usually live in nests in the ground. They only invade properties in search of food, but they mostly travel in large numbers. Prevention is the best cure but because they can access a property via a tiny crack it is difficult to find how they’ve gained access.
Foxes are noisy and scream loudly at night, mark their territory with unpleasant scents and droppings, attack pets, dig up gardens and scavenge in bins. They carry disease such as mange which can be picked up by dogs and toxoplasmosis that causes blindness in children.
Ladybirds collect in huge numbers in the autumn to hibernate. They are a nuisance as there are so many of them and they secrete a yellow chemical which can stain walls, furniture and window frames
Rabbits cause damage to lawns and plants. It is a legal obligation that every occupier of land takes responsibility to prevent rabbits from causing damage.
Molehills usually appear in early winter and spring. This is when moles dig temporary shallow tunnels just below the surface of lawns and flowerbeds whilst searching for earthworms. They push up displaced soil in vertical tunnels which form the molehills.
Wembley is part of the borough of Brent and is in the Northwest of London. Famous for Wembley Stadium and the Wembley Arena and has been part of Greater London since 1965.
Wembley as a village began on a hill with Harrow Road laying to the south. In 1543 the manor of Wembley fell to Richard Andrews and Leonard Chamberlayne who then sold it on to Richard Page Esq. that same year. Though small in 1547, only having six houses, it was one of the wealthiest parts of Harrow, and remained under the lordship of the Page family for several centuries. In 1792 landscape architect Humphrey Repton was employed to convert farmland into wooded parkland, this area was larger than the current park and included southern slopes of Barn Hill. 47 acres of the park land were bought by the Metropolitan Railway in 1880 to extend there line from Willesden Green to Harrow and in 1889 Wembley Park were bought by the Metropolitan Railway Company for £32,500. Sir Edward Watkin chose Wembley Park as the area for pleasure gardens and the never completed Wembley Tower, his hope to rival the Eiffel tower and bring passengers to the Metropolitan Railway that he owned. The park included cricket and football grounds, running track, tea pagodas, a lake, nine-hole golf course and a trotting ring. The park officially opened in May 1894.
Wembley Stadium, also known as the field of dreams, originally opened in 1923 and was famous for hosting the 1948 Summer Olympics, the 1966 World Cup Final, Euro 96 Final and the 1992 and 1995 Rugby League World Cup Finals. Brazilian footballer Pelé once said, “Wembley is the cathedral of football. It is the capital of football and it is the heart of football”. The stadium was also used for a number of music events including Live Aid in 1985, Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute Concert, The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness and many bands and pop acts from The Who and U2 to Michael Jackson and Madonna.
The stadium was rebuilt between 2003 and 2007 and was officially opened on 19th May. The stadium has continued to be used for music performances, with the first performance by George Michael on 9th June 2007.
