Wasp and Bee time is now long gone as we head into autumn. We are still receiving a few wasp calls. Normally in the form of wasps entering bedrooms and bathrooms. As the weather turns cold wasps seek warmth and light, so tend to head towards light bulbs and central heating! The traditional quiet time for rodents seems to have disappeared, we receive calls for them daily! With rainfall filling sewers and drains warm homes are a massive draw. If your noticing rodents in your home or business feel free to call for no obligation advice.  For pest control Bolton, Preston and throughout Lancashire and Greater Manchester speak to Ian Smith Pest Control first and last!

First wasp nest of the 2015 summer! We have treated a lot of nests since then!

 We are currently spending a lot of time in lofts looking for rats across Bolton and Preston. As local councils remove Pest Control Services, we can assure all our customers that we are continuing to provide a Covid secure service. All our visits are done inline with current industry and government guidelines. 

When I’m climbing about in lofts looking for wasps nests I often come across cluster fly infestations. Cluster flies will now be entering lofts and roof voids as the colder weather approaches, though it is often Christmas time when people get their decorations down when people begin to notice!

Moles can be an expensive pest to deal with in the agricultural environment, I pride myself on my ability to tackle mole control over large areas. My methods combined with my experience, enable me to deal with mole problems in such an efficient way that I am one of the cheapest traditional mole catchers operating in Lancashire and the North West.
