Although ants are generally harmless, they don’t make pleasant house guests. In this article you can find out how to identify an ant, learn about the habits of these sociable little insects and get practical tips on how to get rid of them.
ABOUT BED BUGS
Adult bed bugs are oval, wingless insects, which are about 5-7 mm long. They are flattened dorsoventrally and this particular feature allows them to hide in narrow spaces such as into cracks and crevices.
Mice are hardy little creatures, so if there’s a mouse in your house you may want to know a bit more about what makes it tick. Their fur is brown/grey, with slightly lighter shading on their underside.
They have well developed muscles in the hind limbs and a unique skeletal structure, which are special adaptations for jumping. Fleas have no wings, reduced or no compound eyes and piercing and sucking mouth parts.
Rats are capable of reproducing at six weeks old, and can have up to five litters per year if conditions are suitable. The litter size can range from 6-14 young. The average lifespan of a wild rat is less than a year.
Wasps measure about 1.6 centimetres long and have a striped yellow and black body. Two species of wasp are found locally – ‘common wasps’ and ‘German wasps’. Both are known for their sting.
