Bed Bugs are flightless insects, so they can only get around by crawling or being transported passively via clothing, furniture, luggage, books and other things that can be used as harbourage. Bed bugs can go months without feeding this helps them survive while being transported until they find a host. Any household can fall victim to a bed bug infestation.

Most bed bug infestations can be found in bedrooms of domestic properties. They will hide in cracks, mattresses, beds, skirting boards or anywhere that is dark. Bed bugs are nocturnal, so they will come out at night to feed on their hosts while they are sleeping.

Bed bug infestations thrive in densely populated places, so hotels and hostels are particularly susceptible.

Bedbugs thrive in warmer climates, so they reach their peak around early autumn, after this the life cycle slows down, they stop laying eggs and juvenile development slows down. Bed bugs tend to die out in the winter months unless a house is well heated.

Bath and Bristol Environmental Services can arrange to treat your bed bug problem and offer a 24 hour, 7 days a week service.

A thorough inspection of infested premises will ascertain the extent of the infestation, since the measures necessary for control will depend on whether the infestation is established and widely distributed throughout the premises, or recently introduced and likely to be more localised.

To eradicate the bed bug infestation it will be necessary to treat the premises thoroughly with suitable insecticides, including the beds, other furniture and harbourages of infested rooms.

We have found that heat treatments are the most effective method of exterminating bedbugs as chemical treatments may not be suitable for use in certain places and may not completely solve the problem.

Heat treatments involve us heating affected areas to above 50 degrees centigrade in order to kill bedbugs at all stages of their lifecycle – this includes eggs, which are unaffected by chemicals.

Alternative treatments we provide include freeze treatments and steam treatments (which work in the same way as heat treatments but use steam which is helpful when the affected area is difficult to reach). We will also provide a full aftercare service on all jobs so as to prevent the problem reoccurring in the future.

Did you know that there are 41 different species of ant living in the UK? The one that causes most problems for people is the garden or black ant (Lasius Niger), which is approximately 3.5 to 5mm long and dark brown to black in colour.

Although unpleasant and a nuisance to find a large number of them in your home, black ants do not transmit any serious diseases.
However, you should remember that the ants may have travelled through unpleasant or dirty places during their foraging and before entering your home. This means that they can taint any food, making it unsuitable to eat.

Ants nests must be eradicated if infestations are to be successfully controlled. The nests can be difficult to find and can be in inaccessible areas and this is where the services of a professional company is needed to apply the correct treatment for the individual situation. Once you have contacted us a suitable appointment time will be made so that our technician can visit your premises to carry out a survey and advise you on the best course of action to be taken to eradicate the ants. Our technician can then start the treatment immediately – no more waiting for a further appointment!

Fleas are a common problem across the UK and here at Bath and Bristol Environmental Services we are experienced in treating flea infestations in both homes and businesses. They are able to live for months without food and it’s very difficult to eradicate them and their eggs without specialist treatment.

When people mention Fleas they always associate them with being dirty but this is not the case. Fleas are quite happy to thrive in the cleanest of homes and can be introduced by pets, rats, mice, birds’ nests on the property, rabbits, hedgehogs, and even by humans. It only takes a flea to jump onto a pet or yourself and get a ride back to your home, and once they’re in your home they will soon start to multiply and they aren’t fussy who they bite, just because you may have pet fleas doesn’t mean they won’t bite humans!

Fleas will live on the host, on their bedding, even behind skirting boards, door architraves, between floorboards, carpets, beds, settees, virtually anywhere in a home can be a safe haven for fleas.

How do you know if you have fleas in your home or business? There are some common signs to look out for:

  • Bites – fleas bite humans and pets to feed on blood so that they can lay eggs
  • Pets scratching – fleas will often make themselves at home in the fur or your dog or cat causing them discomfort.

Sightings – fleas are very small (approx 1mm) but can sometimes be seen especially when a property is empty.

Bath and Bristol Enviromental Services are experts in cockroach pest control. Cockroaches are resilient creatures and can be particularly difficult to exterminate, so it is important that you call a professional immediately.

Cockroaches are common in commercial premises associated with the production or handling of food. They can also be found in public buildings and domestic premises, such as apartment blocks. They spend the day hiding in cracks and crevices around areas such as sinks, drains, cookers, the backs of cupboards and in refrigerator motor compartments. They especially favour buildings with service ducts and complex plumbing installations. Infestations may be introduced as egg cases or adult in incoming laundry, on raw materials, in crates and packaging, or arise as the insects enter buildings via drains or refuse chutes. They are also drawn to areas of poor hygiene but can quickly move to find more suitable areas in which to eat and breed.

As cockroaches carry diseases such as Salmonella, Typhoid and Dysentery and therefore any sign of cockroaches should be dealt with by professionals immediately.

We can treat a cockroach infestation using heat treatment, freeze treatment, chemical treatment (including the use of sprays and fogging) and food substitute gels.
