Are there cockroaches in the UK?

Cockroaches are here in the UK, as many species prefer subtropical and tropical climates, there are a few that have become accustomed to our environment. Of the over 3,000 different species of cockroach, 4 species can be found in the UK (the German cockroach, the Oriental cockroach, Brown-banded cockroach, and the American cockroach.)

Cockroaches are very problematic, carrying diseases leaving pathogens anywhere they go, and breeding at an extremely fast rate. In 1 year, 1 female cockroach can produce several egg cases (oothecae), each case holding around 30-40 eggs. 6 egg cases x 40 nymphs total of 240 cockroaches. 1 egg case can develop in 28 days.

This means around 20 females are born a month (Half of the given number born). Now multiply 20 females with 1 egg case which now gives 800 nymphs the following month. The third month brings 420 females with 40 eggs, this now hatches a further 16,800 nymphs. The fourth month brings 8,800 females with 40 egg cases which now hatch 352,000. As you can see, in no time you have a large infestation that is rapidly getting out of hand. Cockroaches do not have a special diet, they will eat anything and they make sure none of their brothers and sisters that perish go to waste either. 

We have carried out numerous successful programs to control and eliminate the 4 types of cockroaches found here in the UK. So if you need help in getting these under control then get in touch today. 

How to get rid of clothes moth permanently?

Clothes moths are particularly attracted to natural fibers such as wool, silk, fur, hair, feathers, cashmere, and leather. These materials contain keratin, a protein that serves as a food source for moth larvae. Items such as garments, carpets, or throws will attract the female to lay eggs closeby to the material. By regularly cleaning, hoovering cracks and crevices, having moth traps by windows, or having nets installed over windows will you be able to keep them at bay. Keeping valuable or high-risk clothes in suit bags or bags in closed cupboards will also keep the moths at bay. We have carried out numerous successful moth treatments over the years and offer a 12-24 week guarantee with optional added prevention measures, so if you are struggling to keep the moths away then Beekind Pest Control can help. 

How do I get rid of silverfish?

Silverfish populations can increase rapidly. they prefer damp dark humid locations, living off items such as cardboard or books, paper, or glue.  Once the adult female reaches maturity at 4-6 weeks she will be constantly laying eggs, all year round, which a male silverfish will externally fertilise. A female will lay 2 to 3 clusters of up to 50 eggs per day. It is for this reason that silverfish should be dealt with promptly. 

To prevent and control silverfish infestations, it’s important to reduce humidity in your home, fix any water leaks, seal entry points, and store food items in airtight containers. Additionally, keeping living spaces clean and free of clutter can discourage silverfish from establishing themselves. If an infestation is severe, consider consulting with a pest control professional for effective treatment options.
