Throughout the year as the weather changes so do the needs of our customers. Right now, we are in the middle of winter and although it has been very mild so far this has not slowed down the amount of rat and mouse calls we are receiving from all across Lincolnshire.Read More “Pest Control Across 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.
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.
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.
At Pestcotek, we deal with and control every type of pest species you are likely to encounter in the county of Lincolnshire. It doesn’t matter what it is, we have been there and done that, so unless something arrives from another planet that we have never seen before, we can deal with whatever pest problem you have. Even if something does arrive from another planet, we will inspect it, learn about it, and then know how to remove it. Getting rid of pests is what we do.
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.
