Keeping the pigeons at bay!

A pigeon net was installed at the top of this tower to prevent pigeons from roosting and nesting.  The adjoining businesses were subject to foul smells and inundated with flying and crawling insects feeding on the guano.  110 bags of pigeon guano were removed from the base of this tower.  sham farm 1sham farm 2

60,000 Honey Bees Saved!

We were instructed to remove a colony of honey bees that had decided to make their home in the cavity wall of a property in Seaford.  This was a very exciting job and along with the client, we went to great lengths to save the bees. It took a while and a few stings handed out in the process but we got there in the end and the honey bees were given a new home.

Some things you might not know about bed bugs!

Yes they feed on humans and cause itchy red bumps but did you know…

1.  Bed bugs can live for several months without a meal and so can tuck down in your home until they are near a human again.

2.  Bed bugs are very clever.  They know to stay out of view during the daytime but when night comes they crawl out of their hiding places looking for a meal.

2.  Bed bugs can live anywhere.

3.  Bed bugs feed for 5-10 minutes and then hide for 5-10 days laying eggs.

4.  Bed bugs can survive in freezing conditions as well as in hot temperatures over 100 degrees.

5.  Wonder why we don’t wake up when bitten?  It is because the bed bug saliva acts as an anesthetic making the biting painless.

The black dots are droppings, eggs are white and there are even light coloured babies in this photo.
