Bed bugs move in to bedsit

When Cleankill was called to a bed bug problem in South Kensington, London, technicians found one of the worst infestations they had ever encountered.

The building they were called to was made up of bedsits which all had sitting tenants. One of the bedsits (an area of approximately 14 feet by 16 feet) was occupied by a man in his mid-70s who lived in one room with his bed, wardrobe and armchair – all of which were heavily infested.

Filter flies in London – an increasing problem

Many office blocks in London have restaurants and shops on the ground floor which can present additional challenges to FMs if tenants do not take steps to keep their areas hygienic and pest free.

This was the case with an upmarket Italian restaurant in central London. Cleankill was called to deal with a serious fly infestation which was spreading through a void into the toilets and then into the eating areas. They were identified as filter flies – small flies about the size of fruit flies – commonly found at sewage farms which provide the ideal breeding conditions.

Under-floor cameras help to solve mouse problem

Raised flooring in office buildings - designed to create space for ducting and cables - provides the perfect space for mice. They can move around the building without being seen and then emerge through openings such as risers used to house electrical sockets.

Cleankill responded to a call from a customer with offices near London Bridge after staff saw mice running around on the carpet.

To help establish the extent of the infestation, a motion-sensitive camera was placed under the floor near one of the risers for two and a half days.

Cleankill removes rats and mice from equestrian centre in East Sussex

The Problem

Cleankill Pest Control was called to a residential property and equestrian centre in East Sussex.  The owner, Andy Melville, reported rats had been seen taking food from the bird table and digging burrows under the table. The bird table was situated near a pond in the large garden attached to the premises. In addition to this, mice were also found to be eating animal feed in the storage cupboards.
