Beetles, Mites, Silverfish and Spiders

There are a great number of species of beetles and mites. The most common that become household pests are textile beetles such as CARPET BEETLES and stored food products such as FLOUR MITES 

FLIES can be a problem for some. Larger spieces of flies tend to occur if a rat or mouse has died nearby or within your property. Some smaller speices of flies such as cluster flies can gather in unused parts of your home such as lofts or wall voids.

SPIDERS can inhabit homes that have been void for a long period of time. They thrive during the summer months.

Identifying the root of a CARPET BEETLE infestation is hard but they can be brought in by birds feathers and through lofts. They feed on carpet, clothing, wool and other natural materials.

FLOUR MITES as the name suggests are usually found in bags of flour that havent been sealed or sitting in cupboards for sometime. They can end up infesting your dry food cupboards or pantry. Although they do not pose a health risk.
