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.

About Weybridge

Weybridge is situated southwest of London in the Borough of Elmbridge in northwest Surrey. Its name derives from a crossing point of the River Wey. During the Elizabethan period the bridge was a wooden structure, rebuilt in 1808 on 13 wooden arches. The present brick and iron bridge dates from 1865. In 1945 a second bridge, downstream of the first, was constructed and now carries the A317.

The medieval wooden bridge was replaced by a Victorian brick and iron bridge in 1865. The town centre is close to the confluence of the River Wey and the River Thames, and the settlement also includes St George’s Hill and Brooklands.

Settlement of the area dates back to the Iron Age, with relics of a hill fort on top of St George’s Hill and an iron smelting site close to the River Wey. The first written records of a settlement at Weybridge date from the 7th century and it appears in the Domesday Book.

In the 1530s Henry VIII constructed Oatlands Palace to the north of the town centre, intended to be the residence of his 4th wife, Anne of Cleves. He married Catherine Howard there in July 1540 and the palace remained a royal residence until the Civil War. It was demolished in the early 1650s and later that century a new mansion, Oatlands House, was built in the grounds of Oatlands Palace. Prince Frederick, Duke of York, purchased the mansion in 1790 and a monument commemorating the Duchess of York is situated on Monument Green. The Dial Stone from this column is next to Weybridge Library.

St James’ church was consecrated in 1848, replacing the small medieval church of St Nicholas which was built in 1450.

One of the earliest canals in Great Britain, the River Wey Navigation, opened in 1653. It stretches between the Thames and Guildford, with 12 locks and 9 miles of new cuts.

The town began to expand significantly in the early 19th century with the opening of Weybridge Railway station in 1838. Construction of housing on St George’s Hill started in the first half of the 20th century.

The world’s first purpose-built racetrack was opened at Brooklands in 1907 and hosted the first British Grand Prix in 1926. It was used by Sir Malcom Campbell to develop his final land speed record car, the Campbell-Railton Blue Bird. It closed as a racetrack in 1939 due to the second World War. Throughout the 20th century Brooklands was used by the aerospace industry. Vickers established a factory there in 1915 and aircraft manufacturing continued at the site util 1988. Aircraft developed and tested there includes the Wellington bomber and Hurricane fighter. The Brooklands Museum opened in 1991 and in 2006 Brooklands became the site of Mercedes Benz World.
