Welcome to Essex Pest Control & Bird Control. Our mice control and proofing services are available to Essex, London and Kent. Now that the cold weather is here you may find you have some extra guests for Christmas. Mice can find their way into your home via a hole the width of a pen and once in they stay in and thrive. Mice control and mouse proofing is our most requested pest control treatment in London this time of year. Often people will have noticed the first signs of mice in their home a while before but then this soon increases as mice breed every six weeks. Soon you will go from seeing 1 mouse (as everyone always believes they are only seeing one when actually that is rarely true) to seeing anything up to and sometimes more than a dozen. Mice Control and Proofing a Kitchen Once mice have entered your home the damage they can do is sometimes shocking for people. Chewing of food, personal items, doors and then there is the smell, the droppings, the urine and the health risks. If you are at that stage then mice control and proofing is what you need to prevent the infestation from growing and becoming unbearable. Mice control and proofing for a house will consist of a baiting treatment and then to locate and seal all entry points inside a house and outside below waist height. The routes that mice enter a house to tend to be consistent from property to property, regardless of if it is a flat or house but they can vary is the extent of work needed to correctly seal the holes to ensure long term protection.

Essex Pest Control & Bird Control ensure that only the best materials are used for mice control and proofing your home, this means no expending foam.

Not only does this ensure that the mice control and proofing against rodents will remain effective but it wont stand out and be an eye sore.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them.

A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

Here is some bed bug information that may be of use to you if you are experiencing problems with bedbugs.  Bed bugs are easily transferred by staying somewhere that already is infested, having someone stay with you who has a bed bug infestation in their own property, holiday and travelling as well as bringing in furniture or infested items into your home. The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them. 

Bed bug information

Bed bugs will crawl into cracks, crevices, the bed frame, the top of curtains if your curtains over hang your bed, the rear of your wardrobes, bed side units, down the edge of the carpet and floors among other places. Contact me for more information on this. Bed bugs will usually feed around the upper body, neck, arms, shoulders, back, it is however not uncommon to find bites in other areas. A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice. It may be necessary for the pest control or bed bug technician to treat all furniture in the rooms, if this is the case it is likely you will be asked to wash all clothing so be prepared. With bed bug treatments it is vital your follow all advice given to you by the pest control company, if you are not being given advice, id think twice about using them. Never use bed bug smoke treatments purchased from the internet, if you have, make sure you inform the pest controller when they attend.

Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

Here is some bed bug information that may be of use to you if you are experiencing problems with bedbugs.  Bed bugs are easily transferred by staying somewhere that already is infested, having someone stay with you who has a bed bug infestation in their own property, holiday and travelling as well as bringing in furniture or infested items into your home. The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them. 

Bed bug information

Bed bugs will crawl into cracks, crevices, the bed frame, the top of curtains if your curtains over hang your bed, the rear of your wardrobes, bed side units, down the edge of the carpet and floors among other places. Contact me for more information on this. Bed bugs will usually feed around the upper body, neck, arms, shoulders, back, it is however not uncommon to find bites in other areas. A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Mice Control and Proofing

  1. Mice Control and Proofing

Welcome to Essex Pest Control & Bird Control. Our mice control and proofing services are available to Essex, London and Kent. Now that the cold weather is here you may find you have some extra guests for Christmas. Mice can find their way into your home via a hole the width of a pen and once in they stay in and thrive. Mice control and mouse proofing is our most requested pest control treatment in London this time of year. Often people will have noticed the first signs of mice in their home a while before but then this soon increases as mice breed every six weeks. Soon you will go from seeing 1 mouse (as everyone always believes they are only seeing one when actually that is rarely true) to seeing anything up to and sometimes more than a dozen. Mice Control and Proofing a Kitchen Once mice have entered your home the damage they can do is sometimes shocking for people. Chewing of food, personal items, doors and then there is the smell, the droppings, the urine and the health risks. If you are at that stage then mice control and proofing is what you need to prevent the infestation from growing and becoming unbearable. Mice control and proofing for a house will consist of a baiting treatment and then to locate and seal all entry points inside a house and outside below waist height. The routes that mice enter a house to tend to be consistent from property to property, regardless of if it is a flat or house but they can vary is the extent of work needed to correctly seal the holes to ensure long term protection. Get in touch with us today to book a mouse proofing service and ensure your home never suffers from mice again. Essex Pest Control & Bird Control ensure that only the best materials are used for mice control and proofing your home, this means no expending foam. Proofing with foam is messy and does not provide long term protection as mice can easily chew through this. Even wire wool if used in the wrong place can be non effective. Our methods rely on replacing the original material with like for like, so wood in wood, cement in cement floor and brick and so on. Not only does this ensure that the mice control and proofing against rodents will remain effective but it wont stand out and be an eye sore. If you require Pest Control Essex, Pest Control East London, Kent or Mice control and proofing for your home then contact us today for more information.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

Mice control and mouse proofing is our most requested pest control treatment in London this time of year. Often people will have noticed the first signs of mice in their home a while before but then this soon increases as mice breed every six weeks. Soon you will go from seeing 1 mouse (as everyone always believes they are only seeing one when actually that is rarely true) to seeing anything up to and sometimes more than a dozen. Mice Control and Proofing a Kitchen Once mice have entered your home the damage they can do is sometimes shocking for people. Chewing of food, personal items, doors and then there is the smell, the droppings, the urine and the health risks. If you are at that stage then mice control and proofing is what you need to prevent the infestation from growing and becoming unbearable. Mice control and proofing for a house will consist of a baiting treatment and then to locate and seal all entry points inside a house and outside below waist height. The routes that mice enter a house to tend to be consistent from property to property, regardless of if it is a flat or house but they can vary is the extent of work needed to correctly seal the holes to ensure long term protection.

Essex Pest Control & Bird Control ensure that only the best materials are used for mice control and proofing your home, this means no expending foam.

Our methods rely on replacing the original material with like for like, so wood in wood, cement in cement floor and brick and so on. Not only does this ensure that the mice control and proofing against rodents will remain effective but it wont stand out and be an eye sore.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them.

A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Mice control and mouse proofing is our most requested pest control treatment in London this time of year. Often people will have noticed the first signs of mice in their home a while before but then this soon increases as mice breed every six weeks. Soon you will go from seeing 1 mouse (as everyone always believes they are only seeing one when actually that is rarely true) to seeing anything up to and sometimes more than a dozen. Mice Control and Proofing a Kitchen Once mice have entered your home the damage they can do is sometimes shocking for people. Chewing of food, personal items, doors and then there is the smell, the droppings, the urine and the health risks. If you are at that stage then mice control and proofing is what you need to prevent the infestation from growing and becoming unbearable. Mice control and proofing for a house will consist of a baiting treatment and then to locate and seal all entry points inside a house and outside below waist height. The routes that mice enter a house to tend to be consistent from property to property, regardless of if it is a flat or house but they can vary is the extent of work needed to correctly seal the holes to ensure long term protection.

Essex Pest Control & Bird Control ensure that only the best materials are used for mice control and proofing your home, this means no expending foam.

Not only does this ensure that the mice control and proofing against rodents will remain effective but it wont stand out and be an eye sore.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them.

Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Price Of Bed Bug Treatments

Price of bed bug treatments in London The Price of bed bug treatments varies depending on a number of factors from what bed bug control company to type of bed bug treatment carried out and how many rooms are treated.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Mice control and mouse proofing is our most requested pest control treatment in London this time of year. Often people will have noticed the first signs of mice in their home a while before but then this soon increases as mice breed every six weeks. Soon you will go from seeing 1 mouse (as everyone always believes they are only seeing one when actually that is rarely true) to seeing anything up to and sometimes more than a dozen. Mice Control and Proofing a Kitchen Once mice have entered your home the damage they can do is sometimes shocking for people. Chewing of food, personal items, doors and then there is the smell, the droppings, the urine and the health risks. If you are at that stage then mice control and proofing is what you need to prevent the infestation from growing and becoming unbearable. Mice control and proofing for a house will consist of a baiting treatment and then to locate and seal all entry points inside a house and outside below waist height. The routes that mice enter a house to tend to be consistent from property to property, regardless of if it is a flat or house but they can vary is the extent of work needed to correctly seal the holes to ensure long term protection.

Essex Pest Control & Bird Control ensure that only the best materials are used for mice control and proofing your home, this means no expending foam.

Not only does this ensure that the mice control and proofing against rodents will remain effective but it wont stand out and be an eye sore.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

Here is some bed bug information that may be of use to you if you are experiencing problems with bedbugs.  Bed bugs are easily transferred by staying somewhere that already is infested, having someone stay with you who has a bed bug infestation in their own property, holiday and travelling as well as bringing in furniture or infested items into your home. The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them. 

Bed bug information

Bed bugs will crawl into cracks, crevices, the bed frame, the top of curtains if your curtains over hang your bed, the rear of your wardrobes, bed side units, down the edge of the carpet and floors among other places. Contact me for more information on this. Bed bugs will usually feed around the upper body, neck, arms, shoulders, back, it is however not uncommon to find bites in other areas. A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice. It may be necessary for the pest control or bed bug technician to treat all furniture in the rooms, if this is the case it is likely you will be asked to wash all clothing so be prepared. With bed bug treatments it is vital your follow all advice given to you by the pest control company, if you are not being given advice, id think twice about using them. Never use bed bug smoke treatments purchased from the internet, if you have, make sure you inform the pest controller when they attend.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

Here is some bed bug information that may be of use to you if you are experiencing problems with bedbugs.  Bed bugs are easily transferred by staying somewhere that already is infested, having someone stay with you who has a bed bug infestation in their own property, holiday and travelling as well as bringing in furniture or infested items into your home. The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them. 

Bed bug information

Bed bugs will crawl into cracks, crevices, the bed frame, the top of curtains if your curtains over hang your bed, the rear of your wardrobes, bed side units, down the edge of the carpet and floors among other places. Contact me for more information on this. Bed bugs will usually feed around the upper body, neck, arms, shoulders, back, it is however not uncommon to find bites in other areas. A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice. It may be necessary for the pest control or bed bug technician to treat all furniture in the rooms, if this is the case it is likely you will be asked to wash all clothing so be prepared. With bed bug treatments it is vital your follow all advice given to you by the pest control company, if you are not being given advice, id think twice about using them. Never use bed bug smoke treatments purchased from the internet, if you have, make sure you inform the pest controller when they attend.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Not only does this ensure that the mice control and proofing against rodents will remain effective but it wont stand out and be an eye sore. If you require Pest Control Essex, Pest Control East London, Kent or Mice control and proofing for your home then contact us today for more information. Our mice control and proofing treatments are available by appointment.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

Here is some bed bug information that may be of use to you if you are experiencing problems with bedbugs.  Bed bugs are easily transferred by staying somewhere that already is infested, having someone stay with you who has a bed bug infestation in their own property, holiday and travelling as well as bringing in furniture or infested items into your home. The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them. 

Bed bug information

Bed bugs will crawl into cracks, crevices, the bed frame, the top of curtains if your curtains over hang your bed, the rear of your wardrobes, bed side units, down the edge of the carpet and floors among other places. Contact me for more information on this. Bed bugs will usually feed around the upper body, neck, arms, shoulders, back, it is however not uncommon to find bites in other areas. A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Welcome to Essex Pest Control & Bird Control. Our mice control and proofing services are available to Essex, London and Kent.

Mice control and mouse proofing is our most requested pest control treatment in London this time of year. Often people will have noticed the first signs of mice in their home a while before but then this soon increases as mice breed every six weeks. Soon you will go from seeing 1 mouse (as everyone always believes they are only seeing one when actually that is rarely true) to seeing anything up to and sometimes more than a dozen. Mice Control and Proofing a Kitchen Once mice have entered your home the damage they can do is sometimes shocking for people. Chewing of food, personal items, doors and then there is the smell, the droppings, the urine and the health risks. If you are at that stage then mice control and proofing is what you need to prevent the infestation from growing and becoming unbearable. Mice control and proofing for a house will consist of a baiting treatment and then to locate and seal all entry points inside a house and outside below waist height. The routes that mice enter a house to tend to be consistent from property to property, regardless of if it is a flat or house but they can vary is the extent of work needed to correctly seal the holes to ensure long term protection.

Essex Pest Control & Bird Control ensure that only the best materials are used for mice control and proofing your home, this means no expending foam.

Our methods rely on replacing the original material with like for like, so wood in wood, cement in cement floor and brick and so on. Not only does this ensure that the mice control and proofing against rodents will remain effective but it wont stand out and be an eye sore.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process. Preparation is key to getting rid of bed bugs and that is why here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we write and share our Bed Bugs London blog with a step by step guide on how to prepare your rooms for a bed bug treatment and many other useful posts with everything you need to know about bed bugs to be found there.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them.

A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Mice control and mouse proofing is our most requested pest control treatment in London this time of year. Often people will have noticed the first signs of mice in their home a while before but then this soon increases as mice breed every six weeks. Soon you will go from seeing 1 mouse (as everyone always believes they are only seeing one when actually that is rarely true) to seeing anything up to and sometimes more than a dozen. Mice Control and Proofing a Kitchen Once mice have entered your home the damage they can do is sometimes shocking for people. Chewing of food, personal items, doors and then there is the smell, the droppings, the urine and the health risks. If you are at that stage then mice control and proofing is what you need to prevent the infestation from growing and becoming unbearable. Mice control and proofing for a house will consist of a baiting treatment and then to locate and seal all entry points inside a house and outside below waist height.

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

Here is some bed bug information that may be of use to you if you are experiencing problems with bedbugs.  Bed bugs are easily transferred by staying somewhere that already is infested, having someone stay with you who has a bed bug infestation in their own property, holiday and travelling as well as bringing in furniture or infested items into your home. The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them. 

Bed bug information

Bed bugs will crawl into cracks, crevices, the bed frame, the top of curtains if your curtains over hang your bed, the rear of your wardrobes, bed side units, down the edge of the carpet and floors among other places. Contact me for more information on this. Bed bugs will usually feed around the upper body, neck, arms, shoulders, back, it is however not uncommon to find bites in other areas. A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice. It may be necessary for the pest control or bed bug technician to treat all furniture in the rooms, if this is the case it is likely you will be asked to wash all clothing so be prepared. With bed bug treatments it is vital your follow all advice given to you by the pest control company, if you are not being given advice, id think twice about using them.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting Rid Of Bed Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs is not something to be tried by someone that doesn't have vast experience and understanding of them. I always advise against tenants getting rid of bed bugs alone as this can often make an infestation worse. Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we carry out bed bug control in London, Essex and Kent daily. Our bed bug treatments are always successful and our informative approach from start to finish ensures everything is done the right way, first time. We like to give plenty of bed bug advice throughout the process.

If you have considered using d.i.y methods such as aerosols, smoke bombs or other items you can buy over the internet then I would recommend you do not do this. I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

I understand that you may want to try and remove the bed bugs yourself or that perhaps the cost of getting rid of bed bugs is a bit high for you but still id suggest that you do not try this method as these things can agitate and spread the bed bugs away from that area and into other areas.

Here at Essex Pest Control and Bird Control we offer our bed bug control in London daily and can also arrange to carry out bed bug treatments at the weekends to fit in with your busy schedule. If you would like to arrange an inspection or treatment for your home, hotel or hostel then contact us today.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

What do bed bugs look like is something I am often asked when advising people who are worried they have them or have been somewhere that had them. This is a good question as unless you have had bed bugs yourself or have seen them for some other reason, why would you know what they look like. Education is key in the battle against this pest. Some people believe that you cannot see bed bugs. They are to small. Well in some instances that could be correct, like in their early stages I suppose if you did not know what you were looking for but to a professional not so. Well, lets see, what do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like? What do bed bugs look like, an adult bed bug What do bed bugs look like? Surprised? Not as small as you maybe thought? Well, those are adults. New born bed bugs can be more difficult to see. Until they have had a blood feed they are translucent and due to their small size could easily be invisible to the untrained eye. Bed bugs will moult 5 times before adulthood and each time a blood feed will be required. As their size increases so does the chance of being able to see them. Obviously if you are seeing lots of tiny bed bugs that would suggest there has been bed bug eggs laid. 300 is possible for a female bed bug in the right conditions. If you are finding eggs I would strongly advise you contact a pest control company that specialise in bed bug removal, like we do.  what do bed bugs look like and eggs? what do bed bugs look like One of the first things I always look for when carrying out bed bug control is bed bug eggs. If you think you have bed bugs and are asking what do bed bugs look like, then you should definitely take a look at these eggs. These can be very difficult to see and be anywhere from a sofa or bed to curtains, walls, pictures or wardrobes not mentioning plenty of other areas bed bugs live! In this video I made whilst carrying out a bed bug treatment in London you can see all stages of bed bug and eggs. Bed bugs eggs are not always clumped together like this. They can be spread far and wide across a room making them even harder to detect. It is always best to seek the help of a professional bed bug technician.   Thank you for reading what do bed bugs look like, please share this and look out for more posts of bed bugs and all things pest control.

Bed Bug Information

Bed Bug Information

Here is some bed bug information that may be of use to you if you are experiencing problems with bedbugs.  Bed bugs are easily transferred by staying somewhere that already is infested, having someone stay with you who has a bed bug infestation in their own property, holiday and travelling as well as bringing in furniture or infested items into your home. The one piece of bed bug information most people seek is how do you get bed bugs, which I would like to ad is no reflection on hygiene or the condition of the home and the other main question, what do bed bugs look like, as not everyone has major infestations and finds them. 

Bed bug information

Bed bugs will crawl into cracks, crevices, the bed frame, the top of curtains if your curtains over hang your bed, the rear of your wardrobes, bed side units, down the edge of the carpet and floors among other places. Contact me for more information on this. Bed bugs will usually feed around the upper body, neck, arms, shoulders, back, it is however not uncommon to find bites in other areas. A female bed bug can lay up to 300 eggs in her life time in the right conditions. These can be spread far and wide or sometimes clumped together. Small. 1mm in size, white, they can be near on impossible to see to the untrained eye. One piece of bed bug information I would give is that if you are considering a D.I.Y treatment they rarely work and can in fact make a bed bug infestation worse! Again for more detailed information contact me. You will also find some great bed bug information on my other blog, Bed Bugs London. This blog has videos, pictures and all sorts of useful bed bug information from bed bug treatments to items infested with eggs. A good bed bug treatment will first start with good advice. It may be necessary for the pest control or bed bug technician to treat all furniture in the rooms, if this is the case it is likely you will be asked to wash all clothing so be prepared. With bed bug treatments it is vital your follow all advice given to you by the pest control company, if you are not being given advice, id think twice about using them. Never use bed bug smoke treatments purchased from the internet, if you have, make sure you inform the pest controller when they attend.

The Best Tool in Pest Control? It’s In Your Home!

There are lots of pest control tools out there on the market, but when it comes to household items that can be used to help you control your pests you will find that the trusty vacuum cleaner is the best option.

Let’s start from the very beginning; you use your vacuum cleaner for cleaning around the house, sucking up dust and unwanted dirt from around your home. Using your vacuum cleaner for a regular house clean can help prevent pests in your home. While you are vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris you will be vacuuming up the food for the pests – if the pests have nothing to eat they are unlikely to stick around and will go somewhere else where food is available. Now, what about the pests you see; like the spiders web in the corner of the bedroom with spider egg sacks, or the cluster of flies that always escape the swipe of the fly swatter or even the ants that are around the front porch in Summer – a quick suck from the old vacuum cleaner and the pests are gone. Remember, if you do choose to use a vacuum to rid you of your pest’s then use it on full blast / the highest suction and as soon as the pests are sucked up take out the bag, tie it at the top and stick it in the bin – your pests are gone! Now some pests can be harder to get rid of because they are too big for the vacuum cleaners suction, or even too small to find easily so you will need to call in the pest removal experts in cases like this. But don’t worry; they will get your house pest-free again, quicker than you think!
