Greenwich Bee Control and Bee Nest Removal
In Greenwich, as in other areas of London, bee nests can pose real problems to property owners, particularly when they become attached to places within your home or business such as in the attic and require intervention and control. Unlike wasps or hornets, bees tend to be quite peaceful animals when encountered on their own. However, near their hives they can become defensive and sting, which can cause severe allergic reactions as well as being very painful.
Bee nests require specialist skill to remove, not only because of the risk of stings but also because beehives have unique environmental importance. Top Dog Pest Control will never destroy a bee nest unless absolutely necessary. Instead our skilled Greenwich-based technicians remove the nest intact and move it to a safe location, relocating the bees. This process is less intrusive overall and much more environmentally-friendly.
Greenwich Wasp Control and Wasp Nest Removal
Wasp nests are common in the Greenwich area, particularly in the summer months when wasp control problems increase. Spotting the early signs of a wasp infestation or the establishment of a nest on your property is important so that the threat can be dealt with as promptly as possible. Often you will notice an increase in the number of wasps around the property with numbers growing. It is at this stage that it is best to call in the professionals at Top Dog Pest Control before your Greenwich wasp control problem gets completely out of hand.
When you call Top Dog Pest Control, our expert technicians will come to your property, perform an assessment, then safely and effectively destroy the wasps and their nests using a specialised chemical called Bendiocarb, leaving you wasp free within 48 hours.
Greenwich Hornet Control
In Greenwich, hornet nests and hornet control problems are becoming more significant every year as their numbers grow as the weather heats up. Hornet infestations are one of the most dangerous type of insect control we deal with at Top Dog Pest Control due to how poisonous hornet stings are. We strongly urge people of Greenwich not to attempt to remove a hornet nest without professional assistance due to the likelihood of the hornets swarming and stinging, which can cause extreme allergic reactions including anaphylaxis.
Using the same treatment used to destroy wasp nests, a chemical called Bendiocarb, our Greenwich technicians have the skill and technology to effectively exterminate the hornets and their nest once and for all, removing the threat to you and those around you.
Greenwich Cluster Fly Control
Cluster fly infestations in your Greenwich property can be very distressing, particularly when the flies swarm throughout your home or business and become harder to control.
Typically, cluster flies move into a property as the weather cools down and then hibernate over the winter; come summer they then burst out and swarm, contaminating food as they go. To avoid this happening it is best to try and catch a cluster fly infestation as early as you can, preferably during their hibernation phase in the winter. However, our Top Dog Pest Control technicians in Greenwich can help you eradicate your cluster fly problem at whatever stage it is at, as well as offering advice about how to avoid further infestations in the future.
Greenwich Bed Bug Control and Removal
The name ‘bed bugs’ is a bit misleading as it suggests that bed bugs live only in beds, but this is not the case – bed bug infestation and control problems can affect multiple locations within your Greenwich property.
Many bed bug eradication products that people buy in shops have only limited success because they only target the bed bugs themselves, not their eggs that lie hidden in furniture, soft furnishings, carpets, and between floorboards. Leaving the eggs intact means that the problem is only temporarily solved before the eggs then hatch and the bed bug problem starts again. Top Dog Pest Control’s Greenwich technicians use Diatomaceous earth, insect growth inhibitors, and traditional insecticides to target both the eggs and the bed bugs, completely resolving your bed bug infestation.
Greenwich Flea Control
Flea control problems and flea infestations are a common issue in Greenwich and beyond. As well as being itchy and unpleasant, it is not well known that flea bites can spread disease or become infected and people underestimate the risk posed by flea infestations. It is best to get your flea infestation dealt with as early as possible as fleas tend to rapidly multiply, which means the situation can rapidly get out of control and will become even more difficult to solve.
Using a multi-pronged attack similar to that which our Greenwich technicians use to destroy bed bug infestations, Top Dog Pest Control can effectively eliminate a flea problem of any size.
Greenwich Silverfish Control
Silverfish infestation and control problems should not be underestimated as they can cause very expensive damage to your property in the Greenwich area as the silverfish chew through wallpaper, books, clothes, and other items.
Top Dog Pest Control’s Greenwich technicians first perform an initial survey to determine the nature of your silverfish infestation problem, followed by a targeted treatment to eradicate the silverfish completely. We then help identify the underlying factors behind the infestation and offer advice as to how to revolve this and prevent further infestations.
Greenwich Cockroach Control
Unfortunately, cockroach control problems and cockroach infestations are not that unusual in Greenwich. Cockroaches are able to crawl through gaps the size of a penny and can easily enter your home or business and nest. Once they have infested your property they can spread disease and contaminate food.
Many people attempt to deal with their cockroach infestation themselves by using off-the-shelf products to try and eliminate the cockroaches. Unfortunately, these products are often designed to only target those cockroaches seen out in the open, not the hidden nest which is where the true problem lies. Top Dog Pest Control’s Greenwich technicians are skilled at locating the cockroaches’ nests and directly destroying it, solving all your cockroach infestation problems.
Greenwich Spider Control
Spider infestations are a deeply unpleasant thing to experience in your Greenwich property and with stories about poisonous spiders coming to the UK, anxiety about spider control is becoming increasingly commonplace. When you contact Top Dog Pest Control our technicians will assess the situation and determine whether or not your spiders are poisonous.
Whatever the outcome, we will then use specialised treatments to clear your Greenwich property of the spider infestation, effectively solving all of your spider control problems.
Greenwich Ant Control
Ant infestations and ant control problems can be difficult to overcome once they take hold in your Greenwich property. Ant infestations typically start with a few “scout” ants that enter the property looking for a source of food and shelter. If they find this, typically in a kitchen area, then many more ants will quickly follow and soon there will be a full-scale infestation.
Often the ant colonies will be hidden between walls or under the floor, which can make getting to them difficult. Top Dog Pest Control’s skilled Greenwich technicians have the expertise to locate the ants’ nest wherever it may be and can then totally destroy it, leaving your property ant-free!
Greenwich Rodent Control
Top Dog Pest Control is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in Greenwich to tackle all of your rodent infestation problems. Specially trained and fully equipped, our expert technicians are dedicated to rodent extermination and we’re confident that you’ll be delighted with the results of our treatments! Further more, we treat each call out as an emergency, getting to you as soon as possible, often within the hour.
When you contact our friendly and discreet team we will meet with you to gain an understanding of the nature and extent of your rodent infestation problem. We then deploy a combination of extermination techniques to effectively destroy the rodents. Finally, we provide follow-up to ensure the treatment has been 100% effective and to offer advice about how to avoid further infestations in the future.
Greenwich Rat Control
Rat control problems and rat infestations are common in Greenwich and elsewhere in London. Rats can be very dangerous to human health as they carry diseases and parasites, which are spread through their hair, urine, and droppings. Often the first sign of a rat infestation is scratching noises in the night.
If you have this problem, Top Dog Pest Control will investigate and discover the source of the problem. We then use a combination of techniques including rodenticides, traps, and fumigation to eliminate the rats.
Greenwich Mice Control
Mice nests can be very difficult to reach as they are often below floorboards or between the walls of Greenwich homes, making effective mouse control difficult. However, controlling mice infestations is very important as they can spread diseases such as Meningitis or Salmonella to humans, which can be very dangerous.
When you spot the first signs of a mice infestation in your Greenwich home or business, put in a call Top Dog Pest Control as mice breed rapidly and can soon get completely out of control.
Our highly-skilled technicians have the experience and equipment to reach mice nests wherever they may be in your Greenwich property and will resolve you infestation problem quickly and discreetly.
Greenwich Squirrel Control
When people in Greenwich hear scratching and scrabbling noises coming from the roof they normally assume they have a rat or mice infestation, but it could in fact be squirrels making all the noise! Top Dog Pest Control technicians are skilled at working out what kind of rodent you have hiding in your Greenwich property by examining their droppings and other signs.
Once the nature of the infestation has been correctly identified, our friendly technicians will use FENN traps to eliminate the squirrels and then dispose of them away from your property in line with animal welfare and local authority guidelines.
Greenwich Pigeon Control & Bird Proofing
Greenwich bird control and bird proofing is becoming an essential part of property maintenance, particularly for businesses.
Health risks, damage to buildings and slip hazards are just a few of the problems pigeons and other birds can cause when they congregate in large groups in or around your Greenwich building.
Greenwich Bird Control
Greenwich bird control becomes necessary when you find that your building has become a nesting or resting spot for birds such as gulls and pigeons. This is often due to members of the public providing a well-needed food source by either dropping waste food or intentionally feeding birds.
While the birds themselves can be unsightly, it is their droppings that cause risk to public health and safety. As well as creating a slip hazard on pavements and walkways, they have acidic properties that will cause corrosive damage to your Greenwich building. In addition to this, both pigeons and gulls carry diseases such as salmonella, psittacosis and e-coli and if parasites enter air conditioning systems, the health of employees and residents could be compromised.
By employing experts like Top Dog Pest Control to provide knowledgeable bird control in Greenwich, you will be protecting those around you.
Greenwich Bird Proofing
Top Dog Pest Control has a team of bird proofing technicians operating through Greenwich and the rest of London alike. Having a thorough understanding of bird behaviour and the regulations set by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, our bird proofing experts will devise a tailored treatment plan suited to your building and bird infestation.
Options will include:
Nets: a cost effective option as it has the ability to cover large areas such as entire roof spaces or elevations.
Spikes: coming in many different sizes and heights, spikes can be attached to almost any surface.
Sprung Wire: a very low-profile and discreet option, sprung wire can be used on very narrow areas and is often used in combination with spikes.
Plastic Strip Curtains: widely used on warehouses with large entries to allow lorries to pick up merchandise. Transparent plastic strip curtains allow vehicles in and out but prevent birds gaining access.
Gel: small discs of non-toxic gel can be placed in problem areas, often where other methods cannot be used. The gel changes the UV vision of birds to fire-like, making them evacuate the areas immediately.
Any of these bird control options can be implemented by our industry trained Greenwich bird proofing team. Working 24/7, Top Dog Pest Control can attend to your bird control problems whenever it is most convenient for you.
