Pest control in Halifax

Halifax is a pleasant, interesting, historic town that is set inside West Yorkshire, which has some of the most beautiful countryside in the world.

Our little town is sandwiched between Manchester and Leeds on the map (and thanks to football, everyone knows where they are). It has easy access to the motorway which can take you to either in minutes not hours.

With this countryside comes wildlife and we can boast that hundreds of thousands of species of animals live here. From the Greater Spotted Woodpecker to The Shrill Carder Bee (Englands rarest Bumble Bee)

We live in a town which is in the best County, on the best Island on Earth......and if you want to keep it that way, controlling the Pests here is important. They can have a negative impact on the environment and can cause harm to humans and pets. They can carry disease, in some cases kill and can cause fires.

Under cover of darkness, rats forage for food.

Importance of controlling Rodents

Rodents carry diseases and can spread deadly bacteria and viruses.

Wherever a rat or mouse has been, there is the potential to contaminate humans. From food poisoning bacteria to Leptospirosis, the list is endless. The have to gnaw constantly to wear down there front Incisors so can eventually chew through even mild steel or concrete, which is why they are a danger in the home, gnawing through cables and pipes and causing floods or fires.

Having rodents in your home is a ticking time bomb and they need to be eliminated. A professional pest controller can help you with this and may sometimes save you money in the long run.

Controlling Wasps

An active Wasps Nest

Treatment is difficult if all the nest can't be seen and YOU MUST WEAR PROTECTIVE GEAR (PPE). Once a wasp stings you, it marks you and other wasps then know WHO to sting. You !

For the price of a good beekeeping suit (£100's) you could get a Pest Controller to treat multiple nests over the years and this is our recommended advice. Seek a professional !!

Aerosol treatment of nest

You must be able to get close enough to treat all the nest and you must use a preperation that has a quick knockdown as you don't want the wasps escaping and flying throughout your house. Powders are also available but these can cause lots of wasps to circulate inside or outside and are best used after dark.

Strong jet of aerosol

A strong jet is needed for full coverage.

Nest post treatment

You can see the nest is now wet and this solvent based preperation is 'suffocating' the wasps inside.

The insecticide inside the aerosol is also knocking down all the wasps landing on the recently treated nest.

We always would recommend a professional to deal with rodent issues in your home or business and also to remove/eradicate a wasps nest. A Pest Controller should be properly trained, insured and qualified and you should be able to request information on how long the Pest Controller has been doing extermination works.

Using a Local Company to eradicate Pests in Halifax

Having somebody to come and work in or around your house or company can be a minefield.

  • Who do we pick?

  • How much do they charge?

  • How do we know if they are any good?

  • Are they trustworthy?

  • Can we see reviews from other customers?

Well....we think its better to get a local firm for 2 reasons.

  • You have someone who knowns the area and what issues are current

  • Local, rather than national companies can offer the same treatments at a much lower price.

You should make sure they are qualified and source their products responsibly, make sure they are registered to remove waste and dispose of it properly (legally), make sure they have a lot of experience dealing with the Pest in question and finally, choose a company who is conscientious and supplies an affordable service.
