sticky boards
3/31/2013 5:54:53 PM
31st March 2013

I'm not a great believer in sticky boards as an over night control method. They cause unnecassary distress to trapped animals when left over periods of hours. UK law says they should be checked at least once a day but twice if possible. 

Sticky boards do have their uses. They are great for dismantling piles of stored goods that you know mice are nesting in. By creating a sticky board perimeter you are sure to catch any mice making a run for it.

This photo shows pigeon fouling above a fire exit. The pigeons roost above the door creating both a physical hazard and a health hazard. For a small cost we can remove the fouling from the door and doorway. We can also proof the doorway to ensure no further pigeons can roost there.

Rat tracks in the dust on top of a boiler. The rats are coming out of the hole that is behind the boiler and dropping down into the airing cupboard. The infestation has gone unnoticed for a few weeks.

Baits left in a pub cellar. Currently this pub suffers from a rat problem. The beer drop is currently wedged open for machinery access allowing easy rodent access to the cellar. The rats follow the beer lines along into the bar causing havoc.

Rat Toilet Area

A very distinct rat toilet area. Rats will go to the toilet in set areas rather than everywhere like mice. This run and toilet area was covered by an unopened insulation roll making it an ideal place.

wharf borer treatment
3/21/2013 7:23:23 PM
21st March 2013

I was called a couple of weeks back to identify an insect in a domestic property by a tenant. The insect was a wharf borer, a type of beetle. The tenant had seen multiple insects emerging from various skirting boards. The wharf borer is an insect who's larvae feeds on wet and rotten wood.

After identification I left it with the landlord to see how he wanted to action it. Removal of the rotten timber would remove the infestation.

Two weeks later he phoned, the customer was still getting the beetles into her house. A carpenter had been into the house and had removed two skirting boards that had been damp but it had not solved the problem. He wanted the issue solving so he gave me permission to inspect the internal structure of the house by any means.

The bottom three stairs of the property were slightly loose on one side showing rot on the staircase. Access to the underneath of the stairs was via an under stairs cupboard. Using the inspection camera and a small hole in the plasterboard I could see the supporting boards on the right hand side of the stairs had become water damaged. This is where the rot had started and the beetle larvae had started to consume the timber.

Now the area of infestation had been located it was a simple job to treat with insecticide. It is now the carpenters job to replace the supporting structure of the last three stairs.

(Above) A larger hole cut to allow treatment of the damaged area.


The damage is clear to see on the right. The damaged timber is on the floor and the support is almost entirely gone. The left side is how it should look.



Treating with insecticide before the carpenter repairs the damage.

ants march

20th March 2013

My second call for ants today. My first was on the 4th of March. It still surprises me because it does still feel cold outdoors. It is likely the ants will have found their way into the property underground. There were no signs of them outside.

An inspection in a kitchen revels mouse droppings under the cooker. There is a small dead space between the cooker and the bottom of the unit. Fat and other spills from cooking has run down from the hobs and cooker into this space. It and other food debris in the house has been supporting a small mouse population. Bait has been put into the space and under the other kitchen units. A follow up will be carried out in 2 weeks to see the extent of the activity.
