Efficient control of crawling insects is important, especially as large colonies can cause serious damage or annoyance in the home and work place

Crawling Insects

Crawling insects come in many shapes and sizes. Due to their variety, these pests can infest and contaminate many areas, objects and materials, both in clean and dirty locations. They can be found in many places such as homes, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, prisons, ships and processing facilities and can damage many materials, such as leather, textiles, hide, paper and foodstuffs.

Crawling insects usually favour urban areas and insects such as the biscuit beetle thrive in these environments due to their ability to very quickly cross-infest between people and materials, eating through almost any kind of packaging - even metal! The carpet beetle can be found on wool, fur, leather and silk, damaging these materials and spreading through densely populated areas.

Different species of ants, such as black ants and pharaoh ants and quickly form colonies that have highly complex social behaviours, working very quickly and efficiently.

Creepy crawlies are not only distressful but also carry a range of serious illnesses. Cockroaches are known to transmit salmonella, gastroenteritis and dysentery, whilst their faeces have been linked with increases in eczema and asthma. The oriental cockroach is a major public health pest, infesting restaurants, hotels, prisons, hospitals and multi-family homes, causing severe economic losses as well due to contaminating food and medical supplies.

Biting insects such as fleas can cause real irritation and bed bugs cause anxiety and stress in many sufferers. Bed bugs, in particular, can go long periods without eating and can make their homes in the laundry, luggage and human hosts making them very difficult to completely remove.

Each type of crawling insect requires a different approach and even though two species may look similar, they might operate in completely different ways and thus require different methods of control and removal. We provide a range of effective and guaranteed treatments against all types of crawling insects.

Our Approach

Our approach always starts with a site survey to determine the specific type of pest that’s causing the problem, the source of the infestation and the extent of the damage so far. We’ll provide a report including all of the above as well as our specialist advice, recommended pest control programme and expected timeframe.

One of our key objectives will be locating and eliminating the source of the infestation and this requires a professional, thorough inspection of the affected location. Crawling insects are notorious for spreading quickly throughout the building and the source (or sources) can often be in small cracks or crevices, through pets or torn floorboards.

Once we’ve found the source, we’ll provide you with a clear and detailed programme with no-nonsense guarantees.
