Wasp Nest

Having a wasp nest at your commercial premises can cause customers to be uncomfortable and reluctant to return, creates an unpleasant environment for staff and can create a negative experience for all concerned.

Wasp nests are formed after the queen seeks out a suitable nest location in late April/early May. Many problems can be prevented later in summer by identifying nest locations in your commercial premises early during May, June and July. During this time wasps will be less aggressive towards people.
Completed nests can hold up to 10,000 wasps and measure more than 30cm in diameter. Most problems are encountered with wasps in August and September when workers have finished the nest building and crave sweet sources of food.

Our professional pest control service involves treating the wasp nest with a modern biodegradable insecticide that is not highly toxic to other animals but is extremely toxic to wasps. The treated nests are guaranteed never to be used again, and the actual treated location is guaranteed not to be re-used by other wasps for the remainder of that calendar year.

Cockroach Pest Control

Our cockroach pest control service is provided to all types of leisure, retail, industrial and commercial sites. Cockroach infestations are treated with a contact insecticide and/or with a special cockroach bait which is ingested directly by the insect. Cockroach traps can also be used very effectively to remove cockroaches from your business premises. Treatment usually needs to be applied on one or possibly two visits. This depends on the severity of the infestation. In some cases, a monthly treatment program is advisable.

Ant Extermination

Ants nests create hygiene concerns and can compromise the comfort of clients, particularly when worker ants invade buildings in search of sweet food substances during the spring and summer months. This makes it necessary to have ants nests treated as soon as possible. The Queen (winged) ants leave the nest to relocate during hot summer days. This can cause distress when thousands of flying ants can take to the air at any one time.

Red ants can deliver a painful sting which is injected with formic acid. Each nest can last for many years with up to a thousand worker ants. The Pharoah ant is now prevalent in the UK. Unlike most UK species these ants, which are yellow in colour, are highly mobile with multiple queens within the same nest making treatment very difficult, as traditional localised control methodology does not kill all breeding sites. Without specialist methods the colony can scatter and form multiple new colonies, exacerbating the problem.

In most cases, ant extermination involves treatment with a modern biodegradable insecticide which is odourless, non-tainting, non-corrosive and non-staining. The treatment, when applied to the wall & floor sections of your building, ensures ant control for up to 3 months.

Rat Control

Rat control usually involves two visits and requires that the rats feed several times from the rodenticide to eliminate the problem. Baits are strategically laid where rats seek food or in known harbourages.

From commencement of feeding the rodenticide, the control of rats may take up to 2 or 3 weeks. It is important to eliminate a rat infestation effectively and as quickly as possible as they can multiply at an alarming rate. A healthy female rat will live for 2 years and produce up to 60 young a year.

Getting Rid Of Mice

If you are considering whether to use a mouse repellent in your commercial premises, or are online researching the best methods for getting rid of mice, please contact MIS for further information on our professional mice pest control service.

The Rodenticide used for rodent control is widely recognised as the best available. Depending on the type of premises, baits will be placed where mice search for food, either in bait boxes or bait traps.

Our specialist integrated pest management system enable us to provide a program for the regular prevention and control of rodent infestations. These include proactive infestation preventative measures, existing mice removal and finally rat control via extermination.

Bird Control

Pigeon control and pigeon deterrent management is particularly essential in city centre locations where birds and pigeon droppings can cause mess, hygiene concerns, irritation to customers and even corrosive issues for buildings. MIS are able to organise a comprehensive bird control program, including bird proofing, non-lethal bird prevention, pigeon netting and pigeon spikes solutions.

MIS are able to arrange solutions for all your commercial pest control requirements. If the particular pest control issue has not been covered here, then rest assured we can help.
