Bed Bug Info
Size: Adults about 4-7 mm long and are reddish-brown
Life Span: Adults can survive more than a year without blood feeding
Female bed bugs lay eggs throughout their life, each female could produce 400 - 500 eggs
The life cycle from egg to adult can be as short as 3 weeks
There is no evidence of bedbugs being involved in the transmission of infections or diseases to people. However, bedbug activity can cause considerable distress.
Bedbugs are commonly transported in furniture and luggage.
As the name suggests, bed bugs usually stay close to their food source, which is wherever people rest and sleep. The only realistic way of completely resolving a bed bug
problem is by employing the help of a pest control professional. Treating bed bugs is a complex process and if not done thoroughly can lead to an infestation returning.
ACE Pest Management offers professional bed bug treatments that are specifically designed to eliminate these pest insects, suitable for both domestic and commercial properties.
Wasp and hornet control treatments are carried out by applying an approved professional insecticide to the entrance of the nest or inside the nest itself. There is no need to remove the wasp nest following the treatment as the nest is only used for one year and will not be recolonised by other insects. In addition to treating nest sites, we also supply wasp pot traps for use in food storage and processing areas, including patio, barbecue, or beer garden areas.
Depending on the location and species of the fly, we use various control methods including insecticide spray treatment, fumigation, or the use of specific fly traps. Pest flies include:
Advice will also be offered at the time of the treatment to help prevent flies re-entering the property and additional control methods if applicable. Good housekeeping and hygiene practices will help prevent most fly infestations from reoccurring.
Clothes Moth Info
The common clothes moth is generally light yellow/brown in colour and has a shiny luster, with a wing span between 12 - 16 mm. The larvae are dirty yellow with a yellow-brown head and can reach a length of 7 - 9 mm
The case bearing clothes moth is less common. The larvae spin a small silken case around themselves as they feed. The cigar-shaped case enlarges as the larva grows, and when crawling, the larva's head, thorax, and three pairs of legs drag it along
Life Span: Up to one month for the adult male and less for the females.
Developmental time from egg to adult varies from one to three months but can be a lot longer in some situations.
Often found around carpets and clothing made from natural fibres such as wool, clothes moths and case-bearing clothes moths are a common pest. Our professional treatment for clothes moths is carried out using an approved professional insecticide to the affected areas. Commonly affected areas include:
Pre- and post-treatment information will also be provided when you choose our moth treatments.
Size: Adults are 1.5 - 4mm long and dark brown or black in colour. Flea eggs are 0.5 mm long, oval shaped and pearly white in colour.
Larvae are up to 5mm long, and semi-transparent white.
Life Span: Can be as long as two years.
Up to 20 eggs are laid after each blood meal and a single female may produce 800 – 1000 eggs during her lifetime.
The life cycle from egg to adult is normally completed in 4 weeks.
The cat flea is the most common and is able to live and breed on both cats and dogs.
Fleas largely live in carpets, but may also be found in furniture, beds, and clothing. They will normally feed on a host animal, such as a cat or a dog, but will feed on humans if no other animal is available. As well as being carried by animals, fleas may also be brought into your property on clothes.
We treat flea infestations by using professional methods. Deploying an approved professional insecticide spray or fumigation treatment, we completely eradicate fleas, their larvae, and their eggs. Pre-and post-treatment information will also be provided when treatments are booked.
Ants often enter buildings in search of a suitable food source and are particularly attracted to sweet substances such as sugar and honey. Easy ways of preventing ants from entering your property include:
Our control methods for garden and black ants include the use of professional insecticide treatments. This is applied in and around the nests, in all the cracks and crevices where the ants are most likely to enter the property. The use of professional insecticide baits may also be used as a control method.
