Pest and Vermin controllers were kept working with the usual city centre rats and mice infestations all thoughout the winter of 2009/10, but the relatively cold early part of the year has already provided some ant infestations coming in.
The fairly wet summers of 2008 and 2009 were not to the liking of the hymenoptera (bees, ants, sawflies and wasps) but 2010 looks like it will turn out to be a active year for flying ant problems.

However it is at the mating time when they can be most distressing as they create winged males and queens which then fly off to mate.

Many people mix up bed bugs with dust mites which are not visible to the naked eye.They both take a different form of pest control
They dine only on blood which they drink from their sleeping victims. People often associate bed bugs with insanitary conditions but nothing could be less accurate, they do not require squalor, they eat you!
