How many of us have unwanted critters lurking around somewhere in our homes?
No matter which season, they seem to be growing rapidly in mass and number, regardless of what you try to do.
If this sounds like something you are currently dealing with, then read on for some great tips.
Since the 1960s, companies have been producing pest control products from silica in the form of crystalline silicon dioxide to kill insects such as carpet beetles.
Silica is a very common deposit that is mined from rivers and other bodies of water, and, when looking at the Earth, Silica makes up over 25% of the planet’s weight, and can be found in various forms, such as clay, glass, sand, emerald, and more.
Natural silica reacts with other elements to form silicon dioxide. Silicon dioxide is also known more commonly as diatomaceous earth, a very effective natural pest control substance.
As you may already know, there are many places that wasps can build nests. You get the normal places like bushes, attics, sheds, etc, which you will need wasp exterminators to deal with, but there are some places that wasp nests are found that have been known to surprise even the most experienced exterminators in the business.
Here are some of the strangest reported locations our residential pest control team have heard:
When we look at the pigeons that fly around the parks and waddle around on the hunt for something to eat, we either think of getting rid of pigeons as pests or cute little animals that deserve a bite of our doughnut.

One of the best ways to enjoy the warmer climes without disappearing to the continent for a few days is to make the most of the British Isles and go camping.
Forget Batman Vs. Superman, the star of this show is the Super (immune) Bat.
Some people may consider the bat to be a pest due to its attic roosting; making a mess of their attics and keeping them up all night, and, let’s be honest, who can blame them?
But did you know, there is a much scarier reason to be wary of bats invading your home?
If you’re happy to see the warmer weather here at last, then it’s time to dig out those sunglasses and put away your winter coat… because the days are getting longer, the skies are getting brighter and summer is well on its way. Sort of; if we keep saying it, it has to come true, eventually.
Spring has finally arrived in the UK which means we can all breathe a sigh of relief as we hang up our winter coats – and reach for our umbrellas instead! Although the weather in spring typically warms up as we ease our way towards summer, it is also much wetter thanks to those April showers!
This combination of warm, wet weather means areas like your garden, and around water and trees will be swarmed with insects like mosquitoes, gnats, and midges.
