Pest Control in Wiltshire
The beautiful county of Wiltshire, in South West England, is home to the world famous and historic site of Stonehenge. The county is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys, with a climate which is generally wetter and milder than the rest of the country. Seasonal temperature variation is less extreme than most of the United Kingdom because of the adjacent sea temperatures.
Being a largely rural county, Wiltshire has its fair share of vermin, which have the potential to cause problems to property, businesses, livestock and people alike. It’s not uncommon for pests such as rats, mice and squirrels to enter a property seeking food and shelter, especially during winter months. Many pests, especially mice, can breed every three months, producing approximately a dozen offspring every time. Accordingly, a pest infestation can quickly spread if not managed effectively.
Other pests causing problems across Wiltshire include pigeons, ants and flies.
Feral pigeons form large flocks that roost on buildings, ledges, sills, sloping roofs and under bridges. They prefer to eat grain and seeds, but have adapted to become efficient scavengers. Ants are commonly found in nests but travel to find food. To prevent ants, ensure that sugary foods are kept in sealed containers and all food spillages are cleaned up and removed immediately.
