What We Provide
One of the more illusive pests, the mole is a menace to gardeners and farmer alike. Ruining the look of a perfectly manicured lawn, causing damage to agricultural machinery and causing listeriosis in livestock are some of the main reasons for mole control. Our most common method of control is using traps, widely appliable, they can be set in gardens and pastures alike with minimal disruption. However in cases such as highly infested pastures we use Aluminium Phosphide gas. It is applied directly to the mole run in the form of a moisture reactive tablet.
Destructive, unpleasant and carrying unpleasant diseases, rodents are a wide spread problem that most of us have come across at some point in our lives.

Wasps can be a big problem during the summer months, building nests in gardens sheds, bird boxes and small crevices around the windows of your home. They are easily agitated and can be very aggressive. For treatment of wasps nests we apply a powder based insecticide directly onto the nest using an applicator. The powder has a residual effect, this means the nest can be treated and time during the day as any wasps returning to the nest at night after treatment will be killed by the remaining powder. The powder used is very popular in the industry as wasps do not get excited or agitated during the application process.
CLUSTER FLY TREATEMENT
Cluster Flies are found in attic spaces and lesser used room around your home. They enter under roof tiles and small holes during the autumn looking for a place to spend the winter. Once in they emit a pheromone which attracts others to their location and gather in masses. We us a ULV (Ultra Low Volume) treatment system for rapid knockdown. The fogging machine applies a liquid insecticide which travels on the air making it highly effective and more efficient than smoke based grenades and bombs. Treatment generally takes place in the autumn and spring when the cluster flies enter and leave your home.

We take great pride in our work and it is important to us that our customers are 100% satisfied.
