Entering the Unknown
Dressed in a yellow Bio-hazard suit and a full face respirator mask on I went up the ladder and into the loft. As you can image it wasn't pleasant – there were four squirrels, all in various stages of decomposition. One of them was noticeably more decomposed than the rest and it was obvious that this had been a long-term problem. Attempting his own form of DIY pest control, the previous owner had even left rat poison out.
I set about removing the squirrels, poison and larvae. Once everything was clear, I used a fogger (a machine that turns liquid insecticide into a mist) throughout the loft space. A simple process, the mist from the fogger is blown up to the top of the loft space. As it falls, the droplets of the insecticide then cover every surface in the loft. Extremely effective, the residue lasts for two weeks or more and not only kills the larvae, but also any flies that emerge from their cocoons.
All in a day’s work
As you can imagine the loft space was quite a mess. The only thing to do was to remove the soiled insulation, disinfect the loft and lay new insulation. Extremely pleased with the end result, wed made a real difference to our clients home.
