Brighton Spider Control
Venomous or not, spiders are one of the most feared pests commonly found in homes. From wolf spiders to hobo spiders to black widow spiders to brown recluse spiders to house spiders, these pests are never welcome guests.
Without professional pest control, keeping spiders out of your home is very difficult to do. These critters have no trouble finding openings into your house and making themselves feel right at home.
Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:
Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners, basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.
Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there.
Rat Control in Brighton
Rats are one of the most dreaded pests around. With the ability to squeeze through a hole as small as the size of a quarter and chew through glass, cinderblock, wire, and aluminum, rats have no problem making their way into homes.
They can potentially wreak tons of havoc on a home by:
Contaminating food by eating it, urinating on it, and leaving droppings on it
Spreading diseases and bacteria throughout a home
Chewing through wires, which can start a fire
Chewing through the structure of a home
In order to keep these pests away, seal any holes or cracks along the foundation of your home, store food in airtight containers, keep your home clean, and keep all storage areas dry and clean.
Earwig Control in Brighton
Earwigs are more of a nuisance pest than a life-threatening emergency, but nobody likes finding lots of them in their home! Earwigs are most known for the pairs of horny appendages called ‘cerci’ at the tail end of their abdomens.
Earwigs are mostly active at night. They are omnivorous so they eat both plants and small arthropods like mites and fleas. During the day earwigs like to hide in dark and humid places around your home. We tend to find them in the basements, bathrooms or kitchens of Brighton homes.
Earwigs are a common secondary pest, so if you already have a pest infestation this can increase the probability that you will soon have earwigs too.
Brighton Norway Rat Control
Norway rats live in both residential and commercial areas of Brighton, and they are generally found in the lower floors of buildings like the ground level or the basement.
Unlike roof rats, Norway rats generally keep all of their activity confined to the lower parts of whatever structure they’re infesting. They will chew on anything, and their teeth are strong enough to cause significant damage to soft materials like wood and plastic and even hard materials like metal.
The most common time of year we hear from from our customers in Brighton about Norway rats is during the fall and winter, when rats and other rodents like mice look for shelter from the harsh weather.
