Pest operatives were kept working with the usual town centre rodent problems throughout the winter of 2009/10, but the relatively cold early part of the year has already seen some ant calls coming in.
The damp summers of the last few years were not to the taste of the hymenoptera (wasps, bees and ants) but 2010 looks like being a active year for ant work.
Frequently ants make their nests under the floors of buildings and inside cavity walls causing a large number of foraging ants to infest food store areas.
However it is at the annual mating time when they are at their most distressing as they produce winged males and winged queens which then fly off to mate.
The appearance of thousands of these flying ants inside your home can be horrible indeed.
A fairly new pest was quite prevalant in the Manchester, Lancashire and Cheshire area last year, the Varied Carpet Beetle (Anthrenus verbasci).
It was not common for pest operatives in Cheshire, Lancashire and Manchester to deal with these pests until recently but they seemed to arrive from nowhere in recent times and already this spring has seen reports of these insects in large quantities.
Having a similar life cycle to moths their larvae, called woolly bears can eat natural fibres and can do great damage to carpets and some fabrics. They can be a difficult and tricky pest to eradicate.
Those involved in pest control have noted that Bed Bugs are carrying on their resurgence in the Cheshire, Lancashire and Manchester area, frequently arriving as stowaways in the suitcases of home-coming travellers.
Very often the initial reaction of those unfortunates who realise that they are infested with these hideous,blood-sucking insects is to destroy the old beds and get.
This is an unneccesary error as despite their name bed bugs do not just stay in beds and in an infested room will be found everywhere within up to five yards of the bed, in cupboards, drawers etc, even in electrical wall sockets and the new beds become instantly re-infested.
Many people mix up bed bugs with dust mites which are not visible to the naked eye. They both require a different method of pest control.
They dine just on blood which they take from their sleeping victims. People regularly associate bed bugs with unhygienic conditions but nothing could be further from the truth, they do not require grime, their food is you!
