About Bed Bugs

Adult bed bugs measure at approximately 5mm in length, and their bodies are flat and oval in shape. Males’ and females’ shapes differ slightly in that the former has more of a pointed shape, and the latter has more rounded abdomens. They also have distinctive features with 3-segmented beaks, 4-segmented antennae, and vestigial wings, as well as a short gold hair covering the body. Interestingly, their usual colour is brown, but after each blood meal, they turn purple. It is also worth noting that bed bugs can survive many months without feeding, and it only takes one full blood meal for their nymphs to move on to the next stage of their five-stage development. Naturally, their reproduction plays a significant part in the scale and rate of infestation. After “traumatic insemination” bed bugs will lay their eggs on surfaces, which can be transported passively onto other materials, luggage and so on. In this same way, the bed bugs themselves (who cannot fly) can be moved. This is one of the most efficient ways for the population, and, therefore, for the infestation to spread. In fact, bed bugs will travel anything between five and twenty feet to find a host on which to feed. And being nocturnal feeders, sleeping humans make easy meals, but they will also feed on other mammals, birds, and rodents.

How Bed Bugs Affect You

Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite

Whilst bed bugs aren’t considered to carry diseases; their feeding can incite nasty skin irritation, as well as a lack of sleep and energy, or listlessness. Their bites can be hard, white swellings, but their reactions and severity can vary. Other unpleasant effects of a bed bug infestation include the distinctive, musty, almond-like smell emitted by the insects, as well as the speckled excrement they leave. However, these same things are a good indication as to whether or not you have an infestation. So if your property is displaying symptoms of an infestation, or suffering from one outright, contact our highly experienced pest control team and make use of our experience and specialist bed bug pest control services. We will provide a free inspection of the property, as well as an on-site report, before discussing the problem and any further advice or treatment. We can then rid your property of bed bugs 24 hours a day, using safe extermination. All we ask is that you vacuum and wash any soft furnishings or clothing you suspect could be infested, to ensure our procedures are as effective and successful as possible.

About Cockroaches

Known to be nocturnal, cockroaches tend to hide away in crevices during the day. They may also be found lurking near drains and sinks, among other places that provide the ideal conditions to survive. In cases of a large influx of this pest, often, a foul, almond-like scent can be smelt. As for appearance, the German Cockroach is relatively small, with an average length of 1.6cm. This species has a light brown body and two dark lines starting from the cockroach’s head and ending at the bottom of the wings (it cannot fly, however). Although in warmer climates, this prominent type of cockroach is likely to infest restaurants and nursing homes, among other properties, in colder areas of the globe, they tend to stay close to human residences. Like the Asian Cockroach, this species also originates from Asia and is similar in appearance as well, meaning it’s easy to mistake one for the other.

Biology

A cockroach’s life is broken up into three stages. They start off as an egg and, once they hatch, they begin life as a nymph before developing into an adult insect. Despite this, their transformation from egg to adult is relatively quick, taking roughly 100 days in most cases. In saying this, external variations can make a difference to their development, such as temperature and whether they are receiving adequate nutrition. Throughout their lives, these cockroaches will breed incessantly, resulting in overlaps when it comes to life stages. Providing ideal living conditions are in place, cockroach numbers, when it comes to an infestation, can reach enormous heights. Typically speaking, cockroach populations will consist of roughly 20% adults and the remaining 80% will be developing nymphs. Adults will usually survive for around three to six months, and they will moult anywhere from five to seven times during their lifespan. A German Cockroach’s diet will comprise of anything from scraps on the floor to pet food, and the species may even result to feasting on the bindings of books as well.

How They Affect You

Cockroaches can affect a property and its inhabitants in different ways, but arguably what’s most alarming is that they can carry harmful diseases and organisms. These germs can be passed on through direct contact, either with the pest or through their droppings. This pest can also contaminate food, making cockroach control in big cities crucial.

Methods

Cockroach control should only ever be carried out by professionals, as it can be complicated, and the pests are notoriously difficult to get rid of thanks to their breeding process and hiding places. To begin with, the extent of the infestation should be monitored, and nightly assessments should be carried out, as this is when the pest is likely to be most active. For the latter to be successful, torches with red filters are most effective. During treatment, all food and water sources should be cut off to direct the infestation towards insecticides. As a number of egg cases are hidden away in crevices, insecticides need to be strategically placed and maintained throughout the life stages of this pest. Ideally, this method should be used routinely until all cases have hatched, and to control the infestation, frequent treatments are required. Following this, sustained treatments to keep the cockroach population low will be carried out at fewer intervals. This type of treatment usually targets adults, leaving behind a few nymphs. Sticky traps are a popular method and should be placed underneath equipment, behind furniture and inside electrical trunking and ducting. When this pest is trapped, it will release special pheromones, which will attract more of the same species.

These pests can carry harmful diseases, including typhoid and dysentery, as well as cause allergic reactions like bronchitis and dermatitis. Cockroaches leave behind an unpleasant mess, such as droppings and regurgitated foodstuffs, and are capable of spoiling materials with their familiar, foul scent.

About Rats

In domestic settings, rats can make it unpleasant to be at home, wondering what food and surfaces have been contaminated, or whether you and your family are safe. In commercial circles, they can cause significant damage and financial loss. Food premises suffering a rat infestation of any size will need to address the problem as a matter of urgency, not only to protect their staff and customers but also in the interest of minimizing the impact on the business. Our rat control services are ideal for commercial clients. In commercial properties, high-risk spots for rat infestations include production areas, boiler rooms and false roofs, or similar spaces. It is these areas that should be monitored, and, if you suspect an infestation in one of these spots or nearby, you should contact a professional pest control specialist. It is possible to use tamper-proof bait stations and non-toxic indicator blocks in such areas but to ensure you take the correct measures, in a safe and effective manner, get in touch with our Pest Control Experts and let them investigate your infestation and advise you accordingly. Our assessments include detailed reports of the site, bait plans, monitoring reports, as well as recommendations for hygiene, housekeeping, and rat-proofing.

Rat control

Whether you have a rat population in your home or on your business premises or are even just being cautious so as to avoid an infestation altogether, knowing how to spot a rat and the signs of an infestation are essential. Not only will this help you to know what you are dealing with, but it will give you the knowledge you need to identify problems early and get them treated as soon as possible. Rats vary in colour, but they usually have brown or grey fur, with a light underside. Their tail, which is only slightly shorter than the length of their head and body, is also two-toned, with a dark upper and light lower side. Whilst their eyes and ears are small, their teeth grow by up to 12.5cm every year, and their keen sense of taste makes them a talented pest when it comes to identifying foods and unusual compounds, such as poisons, even in low amounts. As omnivorous pests, rats enjoy starch and protein if given the choice, but they will eat vegetables, fish, meat, weeds, crustaceans, earthworms, nuts and fruits, as well as cereals. This means any unsealed (and in some cases, even sealed) food is at risk of contamination if you have a rat population nearby. With litters between eight and ten in size, and up to six litters a year, populations can grow fast. Their average lifespan is about a year to a year and a half, and they reach maturity within three months, which only fuels reproduction rates. As such, it is essential to spot and deal with a rat infestation as quickly as possible. There are several indicators of a rat infestation, including holes, gnaw marks, tracks, urine trails, fresh droppings, tail smear marks, damaged items and even nests. Rodent urine will show up with UV light while most other marks and signs will be visible to the naked eye. You may also hear noises in the walls if your pest population have found their home there.

Solving Your Rat Problem

Amateur use of poison and traditional mouse traps is no longer the most effective, nor the safest form of rat control. They take more effort to continuously check, can pose a threat to children and pets, and poisoned carcasses can begin to rot in unreachable locations. The guaranteed method of rat control is to enlist the professional services of a pest control expert, like us. Our solutions are not only proven to be effective, but they are also safe and carried out to the highest professional standard. We also offer advice when it comes to other measures of rat control, such as how to best rat-proof your property; domestic or commercial. By securing structures and preventing possible rodent intruders, you can avoid the need to deal with an entire population. It should also be noted that rat-proofing reduces the risk of re-infestation, as long as proper practices are employed.

About Ants

Key features of Ants

The number of eggs a Queen Ant will lay during her lifetime will vary, and three to four weeks after the eggs have been laid, legless infants will hatch. Over another three weeks, the larvae will begin to mature, and in another two weeks, following pupation, the infants will have become adults. Roughly, by the end of summer, mature males will depart the nest to find females with which they can mate. After the males have died though, females will hunt for locations ideal for nesting. Within the nest, there is an established social hierarchy, which means there are thousands of ants with a place and purpose.

Where do they live?

Black garden ant nests are commonly found amidst humus and dry soil and, despite their regular appearances in gardens, they can also be found in heaths. When they leave their nests, they are often scavenging for food, following scents that sometimes take them into homes and garden vegetation. Sugar and general crumbs are two examples of what may be attracting ants to your property. Ants also feed on small insects (alive and dead), seeds, and nectar, to name but a few, as well as sugary secretions created by other insects, such as aphids.

Biology

The location of a common black ant’s nest can vary from soil-based foundations to inside tree stumps, and colonies can expand to as many as 5,000 ants at once. Food is scavenged outside of the nest and brought back to the colony; this may include seeds, nectar and even flies. From July to August, ants will mate, following which males will die and females will take over the responsibility of setting up another colony. During their lifespan, Queens will only mate once. However, the mating season will ensure the colony can grow again. It also heightens the possibility that males and females will mate with ants from other nests to avoid inbreeding. When the time comes to find a new nest, the Queen will settle in and lay her eggs. The remaining females will look after the colony, and once the larvae have hatched, they first eat those eggs that haven’t hatched. Following this, they will be fed regurgitated liquid. As for Monomorium pharaonis,  numerous Queens will take up residence in a single colony. Colonies are not restricted to just one nest though, as this species has been known to form multiple networks. Because of this, the Pharaoh Ant species can thrive. During their lifetime, Queens are estimated to produce as many as 350 offsprings, and larvae will usually hatch two weeks after the eggs have been laid, where worker ants will feed them. Variations in the skin will then occur before pupation sets in, giving birth to adults. However, this stage of life will ultimately depend on the temperature of the climate. Unlike common black garden ants, Pharaoh Ant nests can play host to an incredible 100,000 individuals. Perhaps what sets this species aside is the ants’ adaptable nature, meaning colonies can thrive all over the world.

Ant Control

Due to the proportions of Pharaoh Ant nests, an influx of these pests can be tricky to deal with, but adequate treatment, carried out by experienced specialists on all existing nests, as well as ceilings, floors and other areas of a property, will make all the difference. Generally speaking, treatment using bait is a good method for ant control in Dubaiespecially for this particular species. For infestations outside of the property, domestic or commercial, perimeter barrier treatment will effectively control the situation. As experts, we recognize that when using baits, they cannot be placed at random and expected to attract this species; instead, pathways need to be identified first, in order for the treatment to be successful.
