Pest and vermin control in Cheshire, Lancashire and Manchester has seen a brisk start in 2010 which is surprising given the somewhat cold (weather of this last winter|winter of 2009/10}.

Pest controllers were kept working with the usual city centre rats and mice problems throughout the winter of 2009/10, but the relatively cold early spring has already brought some ant infestations reported.

The wet summers of the last few years were not to the benefit of the hymenoptera (wasps, bees and ants) but this year looks like being a busy year for flying ant problems.

Frequently ants nest under the floors of houses and inside cavity walls causing an army of foraging ants to enter food store areas.

However it is at their mating time when they can be most troublesome as they release winged males and winged queens which then fly off to mate.

The release of several thousands of these flying ants inside homes can be horrible indeed.

A relatively new pest was quite numerous in the the North West area last season, the Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci).

It was rare for pest operatives in Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire to encounter these pests until lately but they seemed to appear from nowhere in 2008 and already this spring has seen sightings of these beetles in substantial quantities.

They have a similar life cycle to moths their larvae, called woolly bears eat natural fibres and can do a great deal of damage to carpets and some fabrics. They can be a difficult and tricky pest to eradicate.

Very often the first reaction of unfortunates who realise that they are infested with these horrible,blood-sucking creatures is to burn the infested beds and get.

This can be an unneccesary error as despite their name bed bugs not only live in beds and in an infested bedroom will be found anywhere within around five metres of the bed, in cupboards, drawers etc, even in electrical sockets and the new beds become quickly re-infested.

Many people mix up bed bugs with dust mites which cannot be seen by the naked eye. They both a different type of pest control.
