I was recently doing some number crunching to see how things had developed during lockdown and I came across an astonishing fact – our business has seen a 23% increase in callouts relating to wasps! Between 1 July and mid-September in 2019 we had 271 callouts for wasp nests and, for the same period in 2020, we have had 334 callouts.
London Pest Control
The Cleankill team was called to a mansion block near Sloane Square in London after the residents complained about seeing clothes moths in the communal areas. On arrival, the team found severe damage to some of the carpets.
Residents were probably noticing the moths more frequently whilst they were home due to the COVID-19 lockdown, but also a period of hot and humid weather was encouraging the moths to fly.
