Top 3 Pests Homeowners Encounter

For generations pests have been a constant thorn in the side of every homeowner. Fortunately there are now ways in which an infestation of pests can be eradicated to ensure the effects will not be felt too greatly. As experts in the field of pest control Birmingham, we at PestBusters have collated the top three pests most commonly found in the home and the ways we go about removing them once and for all.


With over 20,000 different species of insect in Britain, it is not surprising that they will make their way into the home at some point. Insectscommonly found to cause problems are mites, cockroaches, wasps and ants however these can be effectively treated with the use of insecticide sprays, traps and baits set up by our experienced team of pest controllers.


Rodents such as rats and mice can cause significant problems if not treated early. Common signs of an infestation are an influx of droppings, the discovery of dark smears or rub marks and gnaw marks on the wood in and around your property. Our professionalism in rodent controlwill guarantee that all problems are treated sensitively whilst also making sure the problem is removed quickly and efficiently.


Whilst you may not see them as a pest, birds are one of the most common problems encountered by homeowners. We can initially deter birds from your property with the use of netting, spikes or wire systems however if birds have already set up nests at your property, control methods may have to be implemented. Control systems include specialist bird wire, a combination of netting and spiking and trapping mechanisms.

There are many ways that you can initially limit the risk of encountering a pest infestation, one of which is to call on professionals to conduct site clearance Birmingham should your garden area be full of excess garden waste you are waiting to dispose of.

With effective measures for treating all of these commonly found pests, we at PestBusters can be relied upon to rid you of your particular issue at the first time of asking. To call upon our services for pest control Birmingham, simply give us a call or fill in our online contact form today.
