Eastham Country Park
4/30/2012 9:10:44 PM

A walk today at Eastham Country Park on the banks of the Mersey showed how human feeding of wild animals can produce huge populations.

Squirrel numbers are vastly increased by kind people feeding nuts and bread. It would be interesting to see if the people who feed them do so throughout the entire year. If they don't the mortality in the winter must be huge.



The squirrels feed quite happily alongside rats. I've been to the Park before and seen a stream of rats coming up the bank to feed on nuts and bread left by people. There were only 2 rats today but it was about half 11 in the morning. Last time was near sunset. I'll take the camera again to see if I can get any good photos of this.



Can you spot the rat? From the middle fence post he's 4 bars to the left in. See him?

Chicken Runs

One of our tyre baiters in the chicken run. Its guarded by a strip of chicken wire. This prevents the chickens scratching under the bait station.

The rodenticide is kept dry and away from the chickens but right in the middle of the rats food source.

The new tyre baiter in situ at the farm. Notice the clear rat trails either side leading to the fence post. The tyre baiter was filled with chicken feed to get the rats used to the units before poison was used. On the follow up 6 days later all the chicken food was eaten. It can be safely said that the rats are used to the bait units!!!

Saint Marks Flies
4/29/2012 4:36:05 PM

Just got back from a lovely walk on The Wirral Way with the girlfriend and baby. Its been an overcast, warm and humid day.

Perfect for the Saint Marks Fly. A fly that is commonly seen hovering about vegetation around the 25th April (St Marks Day).

St. Mark's Day

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

St. Mark's Day also known as the rosebud festival is a festival in Venice held on 25 April celebrating Venice's patron saint, St Mark. On this day, men traditionally give a single rosebud to the woman they love.

Legend

According to legend, the tradition originated in the 8th century, when a man of low social standing is said to have fallen in love with a noblewoman from Venice. In order to win her father's approval, he became involved in a distant war. He was mortally wounded in battle, but managed to pluck a rose from a nearby rosebush for his loved one. A companion was entrusted with returning the blood-stained rose to his lover.

(from Wikipedia)

The adult Saint Marks Fly live for about a week (fly stage in life cycle) spending most of their lives in the larval stage. After mating females lay their eggs in the soil and die shortly afterwards.

The larvae feed and grow over the autumn and winter, emerging as adults the following Saint Marks Day.

Although looking menacing as they fly with legs hanging below them, they are totally harmless. They emerge all at the same time and can form vast swarms. Especially in heath land.

I've seen swarms up Moel Famau that are so dense that you need to breath through your sleeve to prevent inhaling them.

Saint Marks Flies are not a pest species.

What you get;

  • 3 visits to your property

  • the initial visit includes - full site survey to determine the size, cause and what control methods are appropriate. Followed by placement of control measures (traps, baits or contact poisons).

  • On the second visit baits are refilled, traps are emptied and the control strategy is modified if needed.

  • The third visit is a full site check to ensure the infestation has been eliminated. Control points are removed.

10-14 days are required between each visit if baits are used. Visits are closer together if traps are used (to remove dead rodents).

Flies / Fly Problems / Fly Control / Fly Treatments

There are various fly species that are of concern as pest species in the UK. They have a common ancestry but are diverse not only in form but also in lifestyle.

The most notable pest flies are;

  • Cluster Flies

  • Common House Fly

  • Lesser House Fly

  • Stable Fly

  • Bluebottle

  • Fruit Flies

  • Horse Flies

  • Mosquitoes

  • Sewage Flies

Treatments for each of these species of flies are different. A survey is required to identify the species of fly before a treatment can be specified.


Scroll down to see our treatment types for each of these pest flies.

Cluster Flies

A fly that collects in large numbers in roof spaces and voids in late autumn.

What you get;

  • Survey to ensure roof space or void is safe for treatment.

  • Fumigate affected space with insecticide.

The fly in the roof space is relatively easy to control with fumigation techniques. It is however very hard to stop re-entry by new adults drawn to the same building from the external environment.

Sometimes a second fumigation is required at a later date to control late arriving adult flies.

A roof fumigation costs £45

Common House Fly, Lesser House Fly and Bluebottle

The most commonly encountered fly species. All serious pests as they can spread disease on surfaces they walk on.

What you get;

  • Site survey to locate affected areas, infestation source and best control method.

  • Treatment of fly breeding area. Please note insecticides cannot be applied to drains. Water jetting is required from a drains technician in these cases.

  • Treatment to remove adult flies.

As a guide treatments cost £45.

This price however is not set as each infestation can be extremely different in type, size or control methods.
 

Stable Flies and Horse Flies

A biting pest of domesticated animals.

What you get;

  • Site Survey.

  • Application of residual insecticide to walls and ceilings in animal houses.

No animals can be in the housing at time of treatment.

A survey is required before a price is given as animal houses vary vastly in size.

 

Fruit Flies

A small fly commonly seen in pubs and bars. Feeds on rotting fruit and liquids.

What you get;

  • Site survey to ascertain breeding site of fly and cause of infestation.

  • Insecticide applied to control the adult fly.

Prices start from £35 for a light to moderate infestation.

 

Sewage Flies

A small whitish fly with feathery wings found around drains.

Sewage flies are a pest which are associated with drains and sewers. The most effective may of dealing with this fly is to remove the breeding site of the fly.

This normally will involve a drain specialist. Insecticides cannot be applied directly to drains. The adult flies are often a nuisance in large numbers and knockdown insecticides can be used.

Rat Control
4/21/2012 10:41:31 AM

Rat control / rodent control / rodent treatments on a farm can be an interesting prospect. With large amounts of other food sources it can be hard to get the rats to take the bait.

I'm trying out some new tyre-baiters at the rats current food source, the chicken runs.

The two new tyre-baiters are excellent bits of kit. They use a metal frame that an old car tyre sits on. A heavy duty plastic lid protects bait inside the tyre from the elements. Pegged to the floor they present a robust heavy duty bait station at a very good cost. With good placement I believe these will make rat control on the farm easy.

One has been placed outside a chicken coop between two well worn rat runs, within 3 metres of an extensive rat burrow system.

The other has been placed inside the second chicken run area and then sectioned off with chicken wire. No permanent harbourage points were found at this coop.

Both bait units/tyres have been filled with chicken feed to get the rats use to the new bait points before introducing a new food (poison) source.

Neophobia (scared of new objects/things) usually takes over 10 days to disappear but in this case I think the rats will feed within 5 days.

No action has been taken on the burrows. Contact dust will be applied if the rats don't take bait in the tyre-baiters.

I'll take photos on the follow up.

This customer has signed up for a 6 routine visits a year on our Service Agreement. They will receive many more visits than that though as all follow ups and call outs are free.

Fleas
4/19/2012 9:13:51 AM

Cat and dog fleas are the most common type of fleas found in houses. Human fleas are much rarer in domestic properties. They are however still very common on farms, particular pig farms.

Adult fleas are between 1-3 mm long and brownish in colour. Their bodies are compressed from side to side which enables the flea to move through fur and feather with ease. The hind legs of a flea are relatively large and are used for jumping heights of up to 20 cm.

Adult fleas are visible to the naked eye, as small brown/black insects, that jump. Fleas feed exclusively on warm blooded animals, drawing blood from their host by using their piercing mouth parts.

 As well as being found on the host, e.g. cat or dog, fleas and their eggs are frequently found in the animal's bedding or in carpets where the animal usually lies.

They’re a common problem, with 1 in 5 cats and 1 in 10 dogs having fleas.

The animals themselves cannot be treated by Recourse Pest Control. They should be treated using animal specific products that can be recommended by a vet.

Once the animal has been treated the house should be too to avoid re infestation of your animal.

Just one female flea can lay 50 eggs a day; so it can take as little as 21 days
for one flea to become 1,000.

That's where Recourse Pest Control can help you.

Our low cost flea sprays will rid you of flea infestation.
