PEST CONTROL BLACKWOOD


PEST CONTROL BLACKWOOD CAERPHILLY

I’ve had an interesting call from a lady who lives near Blackwood Caerphilly,she noticed that the carpet in her living room had been damaged.The carpet had been eaten away exposing the hessian backing. From speaking on the phone I suspected she may have an infestation of Carpet Beetles.

INITIAL VISIT FOR CARPET BEETLE INSPECTION

Carpet beetles are very small and their larvae even smaller. When I received the call for pest control in Blackwood, Carpet Beetle problems are not a usual request.

On visiting the house i examined the carpet damage and found other dead insects near the area . I took several samples to examine under a microscope and set about looking at every carpeted area in the house.

There are several ways they can enter a house including on second hand carpets, dead rodents and bird’s nests.

After a through examination i was confident that the Beetle infestation was confined to two areas of carpet in the living room.

THE TREATMENT FOR CARPET BEETLE INFESTATION

Because the treatment of the beetles involves insecticide which is toxic when wet, everyone had to leave the house for several hours.

The insecticide is applied to all carpeted areas and skirting boards, it is a residual insecticide and remains active for up to six weeks,thus killing any emerging beetles within this time.

After the application of the insecticide i used an Ultra Low Volume space spray which which is applied through a machine firing fine droplets of insecticide throughout the the whole house including the loft. This application kills any beetles which may be hiding in cracks throughout the house.

When the Lady came back to the house it was ventilated by opening the windows and the carpets were

THE FOLLOW UP.

After six weeks I revisited the house and examined the carpets again,looking for any new damage ,insects or eggs. Nothing new was found which means the treatment was successful .
