This is a picture took by a customer. It shows his kitchen with a mouse sitting boldly on the worktop.
Its often said to me that the mouse didn’t even move “Bold as brass just staring at me”.
This is because a mouse has very poor eyesight in comparison to ours. A mouse has evolved to live in small spaces and undergrowth where there is no specific benefit to having good eyesight. When a person walks in to a room the mouse freezes as it hears the activity and detects the change in air movement. It often appears as there just staring at us but in fact it stops moving to hide its presence. After a moment or two it will dart for cover.
A customer sent a few photos of a fly which has been making its presence known in his dining room.
Identification of fly species is critical in fly treatments to know how to go about treatment. For example drain flies require sewer lids lifting and jetting whereas cluster flies require the roof space fumigating with a fog. In this particular case the fly is a bluebottle.
Bluebottle larva feed on dead animal material. The treatment for bluebottles is to remove the breeding site of the flies which involves looking for the dead animal (if possible). This will involve taking the dog in to use his nose to find the offending object. Floorboards can sometimes be lifted to get them out.
If access can’t be gained a strong residual insecticide can be applied to stop the flies being so visible in the house.
A second visit this morning brings a surprise catch. The customer had wanted traps out for the squirrels in his garden that had started chewing through his soffit boards. He had requested live traps as he feeds the hedgehogs and didn’t want them harming. After uncovering the traps two squirrels were found but also one rat. The customer hadn’t been aware other rodents were in his garden. Now he can put poison down to remove the rats too before they become problematic.
