Likely Pests in London

London is a beautiful capital, however, with its selection of fast food restaurants and hotels, there are bound to be pests lurking somewhere in the area.

Whether you live in London or you’re just paying a visit on your travels, it is so important to be aware of the pests you may come across.

Not only may the sight or signs of a pest indicate a larger-scale problem, but the issue can be dealt with promptly by Pest Control in London.

However, even if you are eagle-eyed, how do you know what to look for?

Well, this short guide of likely pests in London will tell you about not only the most common pests but also signs they are staying in your accommodation.


Bed Bugs

A common misconception is that bed bugs are attracted to dirty rooms and beds, but the truth is, you may maintain adequate hygiene and your building could still be susceptible to an infestation.



So, how do you know what to look for?

Well, the most common signs are an unpleasant, almost almond-like smell and faecal markings on sheets (these are often a brown-reddish colour).



Though society has come a long way since the Black Death, our dearest capital is still vulnerable to rat swarms, especially with all the littering that occurs on a daily basis.

Rats are likely to search for warmth during the colder months and are attracted to food and other rubbish.



This means any food you may leave overnight, or even longer, could lead to a potential infestation.

Signs of rats include chewed wires, damage to the property infrastructure and of course, spotting one of these furry menaces.



Spider pest control


Like it or not, these eight-legged creepy crawlies walk among us.

Spiders tend to hide away in cracks and crevices and appear when we least expect it, sprinting across the floors and sending a shock of fear down many spines.

Signs that you may have a spider infestation include a string of cobwebs, and because some species of spider find comfort in damp conditions, it’s always best to check places like the basement and shed too.

These are just three of the most common pests in London. If you are suffering from a pest problem in the area, please get in touch with us today.
