It’s also common for fleas to be a real issue at the start of autumn. Whether you have pets or not, fleas that you or a four legged friend may have bought in after a walk in long grass can cause nasty bites and itchy pets. It’s important to wash clothes, bedding and household textiles on a 60 degree wash to kill off any flea eggs to stop their reproductive cycle. Our Milton Keynes based pest control team can use an insecticidal treatment to treat your home and get rid of your fleas.

You might also find your coming across drunk wasps at this time of year, as they eat up rotten fruit that has fallen from trees. Be very careful around these wasps as they are very angry and protective of their nests in autumn. With all their jobs finished for the year, and an overcrowded nest, wasps have short fuses and can give a nasty sting. It’s worth keeping away from any nests you see and calling us to quickly treat it for you.
