Bedbug Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Bedbug Treatment across Coventry & Warwickshire.

Bedbugs are very tough and can be quite resilient. Bed bugs do bite, they are small blood-sucking insects, that crawl out at night and bite exposed skin to feed on blood. Their bite can cause severe local irritation. Bedbug bites typically occur on the face, neck, hands or arms. They're typically found in straight lines across the skin.

Bedbugs live in cracks and crevices in and around beds. Infested areas may have bugs behind plug sockets, aerial sockets and can even get inside your TV! …And any other crack or crevice that they can squeeze themselves into.

Treatment is simple, but multiple visits may be required. Which is why our follow up visit is included in the price.

Wasp / Hornet Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Wasp and Hornet Control treatment across Coventry & Warwickshire.

We provide wasp nest removal and wasp nest treatment for domestic properties in Coventry for a FIXED price of £55 per nest.

Wasp nests will start to be a real issue in August/September time. Nests can easily hold over 30,000 wasps and they will sting if annoyed or threatened.

The sting from a wasp should wear off within 24 hours. Apart from stinging, their persistence can be irritating and present a threat to those allergic to their sting.

Please seek medical help immediately if you are stung in the mouth or neck, or if you experience giddiness, nausea, unusual swelling or extreme pain following a sting.

European hornets strip the bark from trees, causing damage to trees and shrubs. Much like wasps, hornets also sting. We follow the same treatment methods for wasps and hornets.

Treatment is quick and very effective. The wasps/hornets usually die within 2 hours of treatment and a follow-up visit is rarely needed. Delta Pest Control provides either nest removal or nest treatment, whichever is more practical and cost effective to the customer.

Bee Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Bee Control services across Coventry & Warwickshire.

 

At Delta Pest Control. We LOVE bees! Which is why we work closely with local bee keepers from the British Bee Keeping Association (BBKA) to remove honey bees safely from customers properties, so they can be re-homed with the bee keeper.

We are very proud to announce that last season we managed to preserve four honey bee colonies from one site, which contained thousands of honey bees. The colonies had been living in the roof of a property and had grown so large, that they were causing severe damage to the property.

This summer, we have relocated many honey bee colonies, from chimneys and rooftops, including an extremely large (20k+) honey bee colony from the ceiling of a property.

 

We have 6 honey bee colonies re-homed with ourselves, and the other colonies have gone to local bee keepers.

For more information on honey bees, please see our dedicated honey bee removal page

Bumble bees rarely cause an issue, and we generally advise to leave them, as they will move on after the summer and do not create large nests. However, we have re-homed a number of bumble bee nests this year, which found themselves in less than ideal locations or where homeowners are allergic. They are now pollinating the Delta garden! 

Generally, bees rarely present problems as pests. However, there are occasions where feral swarms and nests make their home in undesirable locations of a property. Where possible, we will always remove swarms to a safe location.

Ant Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Ant Control treatment across Coventry & Warwickshire.

The most common species that invades homes is the Black Garden Ant.

Depending on the size of the infestation, usually only one visit is required.

Pharaoh ants are a little more difficult to control, and may take a few visits, to monitor and check bait stations.

Cluster Fly Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Cluster Fly control treatment across Coventry & Warwickshire.

Cluster Flies are a nuisance in the home. In autumn they “cluster” together in large numbers in upper rooms or roof spaces of houses to hibernate. They return every year to hibernate, after breeding and laying their eggs in nearby grass areas.

Treatment for Cluster Flies is simple and very effective, but it will need doing every year. The numbers will get less each year, so eventually they will become less of an annoyance.

See how effective our cluster fly treatment is in the below video. This was a big cluster fly issue in a large warehouse space. (Of course, we clean up afterwards too!)

Cockroach Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Cockroach control treatment across Coventry & Warwickshire.

Cockroaches eat any food sources they can find and emerge after dark to forage. Cockroaches contaminate food, utensils and food preparation surfaces. They contaminate the food with a detestable smell and may also be carriers of various diseases, including serious food poisoning.

Cockroaches generally thrive in warm areas, such as the heating ducts and boiler rooms of centrally heated buildings (Blocks of flats, hospitals, commercial kitchens and bakeries). They are also found in domestic homes, usually grouping around humid areas such as pipe works, behind the fridge/freezer… they can even squeeze behind tiles!

Flea Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Flea Control treatment across Coventry & Warwickshire.

Flea bites can cause small, itchy red lumps that are sometimes grouped in lines or clusters. Blisters may also occasionally develop.

Cat fleas are by far the most common species of flea. Fleas from cats and dogs often bite below the knee, commonly around the ankles. You may also get flea bites on your forearms if you've been stroking or holding your pet.

Delta Pest Control offers chemical ULV spray treatment to eradicate fleas.

We always issue our customers with a DO’s and DON’T’s sheet for before and after spraying, as this treatment works better if the customer works with us.

Fly Control

 

Delta Pest Control provides professional Fly Control services across Coventry & Warwickshire.

 

Commercial fly issues are usually solved with fly deterrents, alterations to household hygiene practices, and general waste disposal control.

 

Upon survey, Delta Pest Control can offer professional advice, and provide fly deterrents, such as EFK’s and fly screens. We also offer maintenance services for EFK's, to check they are functioning correctly, clean them and replace bulbs as needed.

Carpet Beetles

 

Variegated Carpet Beetles are extremely common textile pests – more common than the clothes moth in the UK.

They are commonly found in bird’s nests and domestic properties. The female will lay its eggs on or in suitable larvae food - The carpet beetle larvae feed on carpets, bedding, fabrics, clothing, & furs.

The eggs are whitish and around 100 are laid at a time. They hatch between 10 days to a month after being laid.

Once hatched, the now larvae, are around 4-5mm, brown, and are covered with short bristles, they are also known as “woolly bears”. (This is also the case for fur beetles)

The "woolly bear" sheds these hairs, which can cause a bite-like rash to the human body. Which can be mistaken for having fleas or bedbugs.

How do I know if I have carpet beetles?

Larvae moult 5 times before they develop into an adult beetle. The cast-off skins from this moulting may be the first signs of an infestation.

 

Also it is common that people only notice the infestation when they see the adult beetles. Adult beetles, unlike the larvae, actually feed off pollen and nectar. So they are frequently found on window ledges as they attempt to fly to their food source.

Female Carpet beetles generally find egg laying sites between the months of April - June. The Larvae come more active in September/October time before they hibernate.

 

What should I do if I have carpet beetles?

First of all, please don’t worry! They are extremely common, and are easily eradicated if treated correctly.

It is advisable to remove and destroy any heavily infested materials, where there is serious infestation.

Otherwise, infested areas should be cleaned thoroughly using the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner - Paying particular attention to textile items and cracks and crevices of the infested area within the property.

Delta pest technicians will do a full survey of the property, also checking for old bird’s nests in the roof and attic space (if applicable). As mentioned above, disused nests can attract these pests.

The pest technician will then spray a residual insecticide to the affected areas/rooms. Please allow up to 10 days for the infestation to completely die off.

For serious infestations, a second treatment may be required. However in domestic properties we have had great success treating the infestation on the first treatment.
