Farming & Agricultural Pest Control
Farming & Agricultural Pest Control Services
Farming and agricultural work is notoriously dirty work. Most farmers will have seen more pests in a working week than your average man or woman sees in a lifetime. However, hygiene is hugely important in an industry that equates to 64% of the food eaten in the UK.
Pests can be a huge nuisance to the farming industry with them causing crop damage, damage to finished products and costly damage to equipment and machinery. For these reasons it is hugely important to get on top of the problem before it spreads even further.

Birds & Pigeons
Birds can be a huge nuisance when it comes to eating and damaging crops and seeds. Crop damage can be very costly to farmers, it takes a lot of time to spread their seeds and birds removing seeds after sowing can be both annoying and costly. Birds also commonly use agricultural areas for nesting, foraging and roosting which can again have negative effects on the running of a working farm. They also carry harmful diseases such as E Coli and ornithosis which can be dangerous if it contaminates produce. Signs of Pest: Nesting birds, droppings, Noise from birds, Nesting debris
Beetles infest the grains and seeds which causes considerable damage to the raw food materials and can also contaminate finished products. These kinds of issues can have a detrimental effect on a farm. A lot of their crop will go to waste and will not provide any financial benefits for the farm. These common nuisances feed on and destroy plant pods and stems, with the damage causing the plant to die and no longer be able to grow the produce. Signs of Pest: Beetle sightings, Damage to crops
In the summer months, flies can be a huge pest to everyone. Especially farmers, not only are they a nuisance but they also can harm cattle performance due to the reduction in grazing as the cattle try to swat flies and resultingly not eating grass. Some species of flies feed on blood from the cattle, some feed on secretions from the eyes and nose of the cattle and others lay eggs on the cattle that can cause nasty grubs under the skin. Signs of Pests: Regular Fly Sightings, Dark Clusters on Walls, Maggots
