Many insects are beneficial, but some are fiercely competitive with humans. Insects are not only numerous, but also amongst the most adaptable of all animals. Their adaptability combined with their tremendous rate of reproduction gives insects an unqualified potential for survival.
Insects form the largest and most successful group of animals in the world. Many of the insects now found in our Country carry disease, feed on human food, clothing or housing and cause stress to humans and animals with painful bites and stings.
Insects find their way into buildings via a number of ways, open doors and windows, drainage systems, pets or by being carried in, hidden amongst goods or supplies. All buildings provide shelter, warmth and food. This enables them to become rapidly established regardless of the type of premises.

Cat and Dog
Cat and Dog Fleas are very similar in appearance and live exclusively as parasites of warm-blooded animals, especially mammals. Whilst they show a certain degree of host preference, fleas are by no means specific and will feed on other animals in the absence of the normal host.
In fact they tend to be more nest than host-specific, for whilst the adults may feed on the blood of a variety of animals the larvae require more precise conditions which are associated with the habitats of the hosts rather than the characteristics of their blood.
Flea bites are identified as a tiny dark red spot surrounded by a reddened area. The bite persists for one or two days and is intensely irritating. First bites are not generally liable to cause serious infections, but they may lead to hypersensitivity. Look Out For:
- Bite marks on the body, particularly around the ankles and lower leg
- Flea dirt black specks on your pet or in your pet’s bed
- Pet aggitation or scratching

Cockroaches carry a range of serious illnesses including salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis and typhoid. Cockroach droppings can also cause eczema and asthma.
The risk is particularly high in homes with children, the elderly or those fighting illnesses. Beyond the health risks not only are they disturbing by sight, but cockroaches produce an obnoxious odour that taints food and objects they come into contact with.
Cockroaches can breed rapidly and are highly resilient. A quick response is essential to ensure a cockroach infestation does not become established or spread to neighbouring properties.
