Rat Removal: Essential for Business

Rat RemovalIt’s common knowledge that rats are bad for business and it’s very important that measures be taken to get rid of them as soon as signs of their presence appear. If a single rat finds its way into your office and discovers that the environment is just right for living, it will soon attract other rats that will gladly follow its lead. Within weeks, there will be an entire family of these pesky little rodents scurrying all over your office in search of food; chewing into your furniture, carpets, books and computer; and making your office dirty with their droppings. Although they are small, their agility and cunning abilities make rat removal very difficult.

Of all the mammals on our planet, rats are possibly the most numerous and their number has been growing in every big city, including Toronto and the surrounding areas. They like to live near humans where they can get food and shelter with relative ease; so as a city grows so does the rat population. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), their number has increased by 43% over the last two decades. Currently, there are an estimated 4 billion rats in the world.

Consider Fumigation to Rid your Home or Business of Multiple Pests

Fumigation Dead PestsIs your home crawling with ants, termites, spiders and all sorts of other pests? Having just a few insect pests in your house can be disturbing; having a whole lot of them running all over your house will be like sitting through an unpleasant 3D sci-fi horror movie, but only too real. If you have such a situation at home, then you should consider fumigation to exterminate all of them at one go instead of removing each pest individually.

Fumigation is a pest control technique that involves filling the affected area completely with gaseous pesticides, called fumigants. The idea is to suffocate or poison all the pests living and hiding in the target area. Since the fumigants can reach inside every crack and crevice and permeate through carpets, almost all the insects are flushed out and killed. This makes it the favoured method for controlling pests in commercial buildings, homes and large spaces.

The Two Main Bed Bug Extermination Methods

Bed Bug ExterminationBedbugs are among the most common pests found in homes. The term is actually a collective name for several species of similar looking parasitic insects that feed on animal blood. The most commonly found bed bug goes by the scientific name Cimex lectularious and it is responsible for most bed bug infestation. Because they can hide even in the littlest of cracks and crevices, survive without eating for months and breed prolifically, bed bug extermination is extremely difficult once infestation occurs.

These pesky little creatures have a flattened, oval shaped body with a rust brown to deep red brown color. They can live up to 300 days and grow to 5 mm in length. They like to live in homes and prefer places like sofas, beds and furniture where they can easily access their prey (humans and their pets). Bed bug bites often result in skin rashes and allergies. It can also result in psychological problems in some people. However, they have not been proven to carry or transmit any diseases.

There are two methods for bed bug extermination: chemical and heat treatment.

Why You Need Professional Wasp Removal

Professional Wasp RemovalAdult wasps are predatory flying insects that prey on other insects, particularly ants, termites and spiders. Their larvae are parasites feeding on the body of other insects. As an apex predator of the insect world, wasps have a very important role to play in nature. However, they are also a potential health hazard when they become upset and attack. Every year, hundreds of people are hospitalized and many of them die due to wasp stings. When a wasp colony builds its nest near your home, you should immediately call wasp removal professionals to remove the threat.

Based on their nesting habit, wasps can be divided into two categories: solitary and social. Some solitary wasps construct mud cells on walls and other sheltered places, where they lay a single egg, place a live but paralyzed insect for the larva to feed on and then seal it from the outside. Some solitary wasps burrow into the soil or into the stems of plants. There are a few wasps that do not build nests at all, but live in naturally occurring holes and cavities.
