Islington Bee Control and Bee Nest Removal
Bee control and nest removal in Islington usually entails a very different form of pest control than when dealing with other types of pests. Given the benefit of bees to nature, Top Dog Pest Control does its very upmost to never destroy a nest, and always prefers to remove the bees to a more suited location or to a local hive.
Bees are generally less aggressive than wasps and will only become aggressive if their hive is under threat. That’s said, if you have a bee nest in or around your Islington property, there may still be a risk and the advice of one of our knowledgeable technicians should be sought.
Islington Wasp Control and Wasp Nest Removal
If you have a wasp nest on your Islington premises, the longer you leave it untreated the more likely it is to get out of control. Top Dog Pest Control issues warnings against trying to deal with a wasp nest yourself; there is a real threat that the wasps could swarm, putting you and those around you in real danger.
Dealt with by professionals such as our Islington based technicians at Top Dog Pest Control, it is a quick and simple process to eradicate a wasp nest. Using their top-of-the-range long-reaching equipment, our highly trained technicians will be able to administer professional-grade Bendiocarb directly into the wasp nest, which will kill the nest population within hours.
Islington Hornet Control
Hornets are becoming more and more common in Islington and the rest of London alike, and like wasps, left alone they will become harder to control.
Although hornets are actually less aggressive than wasps, their stings are more poisonous and powerful, having the potential to set off severe allergic reactions in both humans and pets. More resilient to normal strength chemicals, industry-trained services are needed to administer higher concentrations of Bendiocarb; Top Dog Pest Control is the company to call!
Islington Cluster Fly Control
Opening the door to your Islington home to find a swarm of cluster flies inside can be very distressing and impossible to get under control yourself. Top Dog Pest Control advises treating cluster flies as soon as you notice a problem, ideally during the hibernation period before they start to fly and enter your home.
Using a knock-down treatment, Top Dog Pest Control will deal with the present infestation, as well as preventing future problems.
Islington Bed Bug Control and Removal
Despite their name, bed bugs can be found in a number of different places inside your Islington home, including on other soft furnishing, under and behind furniture, as well as in between floorboards, making them extremely difficult to control and remove completely from your property.
Top Dog Pest Control, however, has the necessary knowledge and experience to implement a multi-part treatment that will see your Islington home free from bed bugs. Using traditional pesticides, insect growth inhibitors and Diatomaceous earth, our technicians will also give you advice of how to eradicate the bed bugs faster by laundering clothes at high temperatures and carrying out certain cleaning procedures.
Islington Flea Control
Fleas will spread throughout your Islington property at an alarming rate and an infestation will soon get out of control, affecting multiple rooms of your house. Often associated with having pets, fleas can be brought into a property on shoes, clothes or bags from outside and it is not uncommon for flea problems to occur in residential or business properties where pets are not presents.
Not everyone reacts to fleas, but for those that do, they will soon know their Islington property has a flea infestation as multiple bites appear. In severe cases, bites can become infected and need antibiotics to control.
Islington Silverfish Control
The first signs that you are in need of silverfish control in your Islington property may be small holes in clothes, wallpaper, books and furniture. They may look like small harmless creatures, but they can in fact cause a lot of damage to a property.
The expert services of Top Dog Pest Control are two fold: firstly to treat the existing problem with a range of insecticides and the natural substance of Diatomaceous earth; and secondly to identify the reason for the silverfish infestation. Silverfish thrive in Islington homes that have problems with damp or plumbing issues. Our thorough service at Top Dog Pest Control includes tracing the infestation to its source so you can deal with the root of the problem.
Islington Cockroach Control
Cockroaches are not only unpleasant to look at but they are also very unsanitary creatures to have crawling around your Islington home, as well as being a tenacious pest that is hard to control with shop-bought products.
Top Dog Pest Control uses expertise that are not found in all pest control companies, knowing that the key to exterminating a cockroach infestation is identifying the nest and injecting strong, fast-acting chemicals to treat the problem at its source.
Islington Spider Control
With increasing reports of poisonous spiders like False Widows coming into the UK, Top Dog Pest Control offers a spider control service throughout Islington and the rest of London.
Whether you have seen just one spider and are concerned that it may be a poisonous species, or whether a spider infestation has broken out, poisonous or not, our Islington technicians will be out to you promptly to plan the best course of action.
Islington Ant Control
Once ants have found their way into your Islington premises, it can be very hard to get them under control, given the fact that they leave a pheromone trail to food they have found that shows the rest of a colony where to go.
Top Dog Pest Control advises against using off-the-shelf treatments, as these are often not strong enough and simply cause the colony to split up and form multiple nests around your Islington property.
Islington Rodent Control
Being in need of rodent control in Islington can be a matter of urgency; this is why Top Dog Pest Control regards itself as London’s 4th emergency service. With risk to both your health and your Islington property, Top Dog Pest Control will be at your service in no time at all when you contact our expert technicians to report a rat, mice or squirrel problem in or around your property.
On arrival, our knowledgeable technicians will carry out an extensive internal and external inspection of your Islington property, to determine both the source and severity of your rodent control problem. You will be informed of the process at each stage and your dedicated Top Dog Pest Control technician will implement the best treatment to have you rodent-free in the shortest delay possible.
Islington Rat Control
It is common knowledge that rats are extremely unsanitary and carry a multitude of disease such as salmonella, Weil’s and toxoplasmosis, so when you realise you are in need of rat control in Islington, make Top Dog Pest Control your first call.
Our specialised rat control services are second-to-none and trusted and used by many in and around Islington and further afield. As with all rodent control treatments, our expert technicians put your family’s safety at the forefront and will consider the presence of children or pets, using tamper bait boxes to lay poison, ensuring it is only accessed by the rats it’s intended for.
Islington Mice Control
Like rats, mice settle anywhere where there is a source of shelter, food and water, making built-up areas like Islington and the rest of London a perfect place for them to multiply at an alarming rate. When this is happening in your home, or indeed your business, call Top Dog Pest Control for prompt and professional service with guaranteed results.
Often seen as a lesser evil to rats, mice are in fact just as unsanitary and pose a threat to the health and well-being of those around, especially children and pets who spend time on the floor.
A mouse infestation in a business, particularly in the hospitality industry, can lead to immediate close down. Top Dog Pest Control also offers pest proofing services, so that you can deal with a potential problem before it even occurs. Contact our team today to arrange for one of our specialist technicians to come and carry out a thorough survey.
Islington Squirrel Control
Squirrels can be quirky and cute to watch foraging around in your Islington garden, but once they have taken control of your attic space, it will be a whole different story.
Top Dog Pest Control attends regular call outs to people who think they have rats in their loft based on the noises they can hear, which in fact turn out to be squirrels. Left to nest in the warmth of your roof space, they will cause serious damage to the structure of your home, as well to the electrics as they gnaw through cabling, leading to risk of fire and electrocution.
One thing a lot of Islington property owners don’t know is that a squirrel carcass gives off a highly unpleasant smell. Therefore, laying shop bought poisons yourself can lead to a squirrel dying in an unreachable place in your property. Top Dog Pest Control uses baited traps that will contain the bodies until our technicians come back and dispose of them.
Islington Pigeon Control & Bird Proofing
Islington bird control and bird proofing requires expert knowledge of bird behaviour in order to tackle a problem in the correct way. Top Dog Pest Control technicians have all been through extensive bird control training, enabling them to treat your Islington issue as unique and develop a tailored treatment plan.
Not only this, at Top Dog Pest Control we are well versed in the rules and regulations surrounding the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, which stipulates when and how bird control and proofing measures can be carried out.
Islington Bird Control
Islington bird control is becoming more in demand as bird numbers and confidence increase throughout London. Having heard numerous reports of attacks on humans in a bid to steal food, people are becoming more wary of birds that congregate in large numbers.
Top Dog Pest Control provides bird control throughout Islington, protecting buildings from the structural damage caused by acidic droppings, as well as the occupants from the health risks associated with bird control issues. Pigeons and gulls both carry a variety of diseases that can be especially dangerous if carried through a building by air conditioning systems.
Islington Bird Proofing
Top Dog Pest Control Islington technicians are not only highly trained and experienced in bird proofing and control, they are also fully aware of the rules and regulations that surround it, namely the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. This stipulates that birds cannot be destroyed, nor their eggs or nests once they have been established. Therefore, many other methods are used to prevent birds from nesting in the first place or to encourage them to leave.
Spikes and sprung wire are popular options as they can be attached to almost any surface. Pigeons only need 2mm of space to be able to perch, so areas that are too narrow for other bird proofing solutions often call for versatile and discreet spikes and sprung wire combinations.
Netting is used for larger expanses such as building elevations and roof spaces. Despite its ability to cover large areas, it remains almost invisible, is weather worthy and very popular on Islington buildings such as warehouses and car parks. Transparent plastic strip curtains are also an excellent choice for warehouses with large goods entrances.
A very non-invasive option is non-toxic gel discs, which change the birds’ vision from UV to fire-like, making them perceive the area as dangerous and evacuate.
Finally, nest removal is authorised when pigeons and gulls have vacated their nests. False eggs can also be used to make returning birds think the area is already in use by nesting birds.
