Bed bugs are a nocturnal parasite which feed on mammal blood. They can be found in crevices in beds, furniture, wallpaper, skirting boards etc, emerging at night to feed.
Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to control and a thorough treatment plan from a professional pest controller is the only solution. At AMS we are LANTRA qualified in Professional Bed Bug Control, giving us the knowledge needed to successfully rid customers of this unpleasant pest.
The most common type of ant found in the uk is the Common Black Ant, or Garden Ant.
The importance of ants as public health pests is where they invade buildings and homes. Attracted by sweet substances they often find their way into food preparation areas. The issue with this is that they may have walked on some very undesirable surfaces in order to get there, thus transferring germs and disease to our kitchens.
All adult Fleas are wingless parasites, feeding on warm blooded animals and birds. They vary in colour from grey to dark mahogany. The pupa may remain inactive for many months, only responding to mechanical vibration of a potential host. This can mean that long term unoccupied houses may still harbour fleas, which will be activated by someone entering the premises.
Fleas feed prolifically from their host, and depending on which species they are, bites will be found around the abdomen and waist, down to ankles and feet.
Treatment of flea infestations needs to be thorough and systematic. Host animals must be treated with veterinary products only, whilst floors, carpets and other areas must be treated with professional insecticide. Speak to us for advise about treatments and how is best to remove any infestations, and prevent these problems returning.
