Rat or Mouse Infestation In Lincolnshire

With winter fast approaching, it’s the time of year when you are most likely to find rats and mice in or around your home. Lincolnshire is a rural county with a massive rodent population. During the plentiful summer months rats and mice feed and breed in and around cereal crop fields, but after the harvest they are forced to seek food elsewhere. This often brings them into our gardens. If left to their own devices it does not take long for them to become established and start to breed.

How To Deal With Wasps In Gainsborough

If you have never been stung by a wasp you are one of the lucky ones. Most of us have suffered a wasp sting at some point in our lives and if you have you will know that they are exceedingly painful.

Most of the time you only see the odd wasp, so if you see a lot of activity around your home or garden, then it is very likely that there is a wasp nest nearby. As we get towards the end of summer there can be thousands of wasps in a single nest. The nests can be underground, in cavity walls and lofts, and in trees and shrubs. If you see a lot of wasps flying backwards and forwards it is probably the nest entrance.

How To Check For The Curse Of Bedbugs

Bedbugs are becoming an increasing problem worldwide. With the ever-growing amount of world travel, they are very easily transported from one place to another, often in luggage, but also in clothing. They can infect even the most prestigious of hotels, because simply having a lot of money and being able to pay for the most expensive hotel rooms doesn’t mean that an individual is necessarily the sort of person who takes care of him or herself.

Everything You Need To Know About Bees

There are over 200 types of bee in the UK, including 25 types of bumblebees. They include the honey bee, re-tailed bumblebee, tree bumblebee, red mason bee, common carder bee, white-tailed bumblebee, leaf cutter bee, and tawny mining bee, just to name a few.

Bumblebees are sociable insects and live in a colony with their queen and her workers. Queen bumblebees are very large and can be seen flying about in early spring feeding on things such as bluebells. You may also see them flying very low searching for a nesting site. They quite often nest underground in old burrows of small creatures, and also under decking, in birdboxes, or even in the compost bin if you have one.

Winter is here – Rats and mice are moving indoors: Keep Watch

Feeling the cold? It’s likely that you are. We certainly are here at Pestcotek. Yes – Winter is upon us. We humans feel naturally inclined to stay indoors at this time of year in order to avoid the cold and gain greater warmth and to shelter from the inclement and, at time, tempestuous weather. The same can be said of many mammals; indeed, certain mammals enter a state of torpor and go into hibernation mode at this time of year. Rats and mice, like us, seek warmth, dryness and shelter during the winter months and when denied their natural habitats they migrate towards our domestic and commercial premises. It is quite possible that this will result in a preponderance of rat and mice infestations. At Pestcotek, we are equipped with the latest technologies and trained in the most current methods for dealing with this phenomenon. If you suspect an infestation of either rats or mice at this time of year – and it is more likely – contact Pestcotek.
