London is thought to be home to close to three million pigeons – one per three people. No wonder we’re tripping over them and dodging pigeon poo everywhere we go! But why is London the pigeon HQ of the UK? Feral pigeons and other pest birds gather in numbers where there is easy access to food and shelter. That is why densely populated areas, such as the city and boroughs of London, have evolved to become a perfect pigeon habitat. Read our blog post to find out the extent of the pigeon problem in London, what risk they pose and the types of pest control techniques available. If you ar ..read more

Wasps are actually a beneficial insect to the ecosystem, but wasp season brings with it some potential dangers to homeowners. Wasp stings are incredibly painful, and if a wasps nest is disturbed, can become potentially dangerous. With this in mind, when is wasp season in the UK? In the United Kingdom, wasp season typically begins in April and subsides in September. A wasp colony is primarily active during the summer months between June and August, with hibernating queens exiting a nest within the first two weeks of autumn. Wasp colonies can be difficult to eradicate due to the dangers they pos ..read more

You may have seen the odd moth or two fluttering around your living room or flying towards your lamp on a dim night.

Carpet moth infestations can be difficult to spot and challenging to get rid of in your home or business. Fortunately, a pest control expert can help by using specialised heat and steam treatments to remove them from unwanted areas. This is a more natural approach to using dangerous insecticides.

Is Falconry Cruel?

When it comes to captive-bred birds, there are many who feel that any type of human-trained behaviours is a form of animal cruelty – including falconry. But this type of training is not cruelty, rather falconry is a practice that taps into the natural instincts of birds of prey. Falconry is used to control nuisance pests and should not be considered cruel since it is a process used to train birds of prey. In this practice, falconers take young birds or passage birds, and teach them how to hunt better through positive training techniques and rewards, whilst caring for them in captivity. Since t ..read more

Early spring is upon us, and while most of us welcome it with open arms, it is also the time of year when dreaded wasps return. While they are now recognised as pollinators and valuable to their ecosystem, they are a source of annoyance and anxiety to many people in the UK. And when there is a nest nearby, it can pose a serious threat. Always leave a wasps nest alone, as they are likely to attack if disturbed. To get rid of a nest, call a pest controller, as they have the expertise and equipment to dispose of them safely. To trap or deter wasps in the garden, use natural materials, like fruit ..read more

How to find bed bugs during the daytime

Anyone that has suffered a bed bug infestation knows it can be a living nightmare. As parasites, bed bugs feed on human blood and, while bed bug bites are not generally harmful, they can cause serious physical irritation and emotional distress. The added frustration is that because of their nocturnal habits, it is very hard to find bed bugs in the daytime. Bed bugs hide once they have fed, so it’s almost impossible to find evidence of live bed bugs during the day. If you want to know how to find bed bugs during the daytime, look for the signs such as blood stains, faeces and shed ski ..read more

Why do city pigeons gather on rooftops?
Project Multi Pest Blog

Pigeons fly virtually everywhere in search of a nesting and perching spot. But unlike other birds, it seems like pigeons mainly enjoy gathering on rooftops. The rooftops in which pigeons roost can range from residential housing units, tall buildings, restaurants, shops and more. So why do pigeons gather on roofs across the city? Pigeon behaviour can be strange and unorthodox to other birds. Pigeons tend to gather on urban roofs due to their circular and grouped flying patterns. These birds also gather on city roofs to be near a food source and out of reach from predators or other nuisances. Ar ..read more

When it comes to bird deterrent, there are a comprehensive range of techniques for nuisance birds. But one of the most effective is undoubtedly bird netting. This type of bird proofing comes in many colour choices and can be draped over practically any type of structure of vegetation to shield it from the nuisances that birds can cause. No matter the bird species, bird netting installation, when installed correctly, can make a world of difference as a bird deterrent and a physical, humane barrier. When used on a roof, netting is great for protecting solar panels, roof gardens, and in preventin ..read more

Project Multi Pest Blog
by bensisson

There are few odours worse on this planet than that of a decaying animal. But multiple dead rats, either actively decomposing or even long-removed from a dwelling can give off a particularly foul stench. Dead rat smell can also be potentially harmful to your health. With this in mind, how exactly is a dead rat smell hazardous to your health? The smell of a dead rat can be harmful to a person’s health due to the toxic gases and microscopic compounds of the dead animal that are constantly being released into the indoor air. Since most homes are not consistently ventilated, the gases permeate int ..read more
