Bed bug infestations can come in all different shapes and sizes and can require different methods to control. Dale Pest Cleancare bed bug control begins with a thorough inspection of your home. Our professionals are trained to spot the signs of bed bugs and find where they’re hiding. Based on what the professional finds, we will recommend a customized solution to best fit your needs, using multiple techniques to solve and eliminate your bed bug problem.
What are some common signs of bed bugs?
Because bed bugs are generally nocturnal and come out to feed when you’re resting, seeing actual bed bugs isn’t the most reliable way to tell if you have an infestation. Bed bug bites are another sign of bed bugs, however not every person reacts to them. Some tell-tale signs of bed bugs include shed bed bug skins, bed bug eggs, fecal spots on your mattress and bedding, and bloodstains on your sheets and pajamas. If you spot any of these bed bug signs, you should contact us immediately for a FREE bed bug inspection.

Signs you should book a termite inspection:
Keeping your home safe from the dangers of termites or other pests is imperative in securing the foundations of your structure. Thankfully, there are key signs you can look out for, in order to determine whether your property will benefit from a termite treatment plan. The four most common signs that you have a termite problem are:
- Often the first evidence a home owner has that they have a termite or white ant problem is large numbers of winged insects emerging from a door or window architrave or through plaster. These winged Alates, as we call them, are the future termite queens leaving to start new nests elsewhere.
- When damage or hollowing of timbers are detected this is the most common situation where termites/white ants are detected and affect both hard wood and soft wood flooring timbers, architraves, door frames and most other timbers within a building or structure.
- Damage to stored items like boxes of papers or books stored in sub-floor or storage areas are attacked by termites/white ants. Not only is timber a food source for termites but paper and any cellulose material is highly desirable to them as well.
- Mud or dirt appearing in gaps around door jambs or skirtings is often termite/white ant mudding and is associated with their activity, however often there is no detectable damage in the timbers.

Bees present a significant risk to people and pets through painful and/or potentially life threatening stings and attacks, which is why many residents and business owners in Nairobi rely on bee control services.
Common situations in which bees can become a significant pest or threat if left unattended to include:
- Swarms are often encountered as a mass of 1,000ʼs of bees either on a bush or tree, or on the wall of a building or structure. Potentially extremely dangerous if disturbed or interfered with.
- An established nest or colony are often found in a wall, vent, a chimney or other sheltered environment and can be identified by a constant “stream” of bees coming and going from the specific point. Potentially extremely dangerous if disturbed.
- Scout Bees are persistent bees that are effectively “reconnaissance bees” for the main colony or swarm looking for suitable locations to establish a new colony. Moderately dangerous, especially “lost” bees that penetrate inside a home, and although almost dead, can still inflict a full and potent sting.
- “Robber” or Return Bees are often when an old or established nest is eliminated and the entry holes are not blocked up, or the honey and comb are not removed, then hungry “Robber Bees” will systematically remove any leftover or residual honey from the nest. These bees are only moderately dangerous and will only appear randomly and inconsistently.
The rat we encounter in our homes is commonly known as the Roof Rat, and unlike its more famous cousin, the Sewer Rat, it does not live in drains, and rarely to never comes inside the home. They prefer to live in the security and warmth of the roof, feeding mainly on fruit and new growth on plants.
The big risk of the Roof Rat is not from germs and disease, but rather damage to electrical wiring and insulation.
Can you hear Possums in your roof? All it takes is a discreet phone call to our experts who can identify whether you have a possum or rat problem.
- An electrical fault has been traced back to a wire or electrical connection being gnawed or chewed through by rodents.
- A visual identification has been made by an electrician, other tradesperson or handyman working in roof and suggests you get a professional to fix the problem.
- Audible noises are heard scampering or scratching around in the roof or down into the walls. Noises are often heard in the afternoon but the night is the most common time for this activity.
