New pest invades the homes of the

A new pest with long hair has consumed the Danish homes by storm. The pest goes under the name of skægkræ and looks to be here to stay.

Skægkræet has invaded the danes home in so great a degree that it is becoming a common problem for many. But what do you do then, if you experience to hunt skægkræene away from your food or from the bedroom?

Good advice for combating skægkræ and pests

Skægkræ

- They should preferably be attracted by any food. They especially like high-protein food, so if you can find good food with much protein, so lures them into limfælder, and then they sit stuck there. I would vacuum as soon as I see them, and then I will otherwise try to close with silekone. If they come into a little crack or something, then use some silicone and caulk with, says Claus Schultz from the trade Association for Skadedyrsfirmaer.

Sølvfisk

Sølvfisk is in the family with skægkræ but is a lot less and have less hair and følehørn than skægkræ. You can fight them to air out for 5-10 minutes several times daily. Additionally it is a good idea to vacuum thoroughly.

Moths

Moths or pølsmøl is one of the two most widely used skadedyrsmøl in Denmark. You can fight them by making thoroughly clean in your property in all areas.

And that is not exactly the view that skægkræene disappear from the danes ' home. In fact, the trend is that danes find the small pests in the home, so increasing that it is about to spread to the whole country.

- They are good enough in many places around the country. We get daily inquiries from people who have skægkræ in the home. We can just see that the more time that goes by, the more it spreads also out, says Claus Schultz, who is chairman of the trade Association for Skadedyrsfirmaer, to Ekstra Bladet.

Skægkræene comes from Norway and has long been known among the Norwegian population. Now, though, they're also quite known among the Danish population. The little pests are in the family with the pest sølvfisk, that many danes are perhaps already familiar with.

the Difference between the two pests is, however, that skægkræ is substantially larger than the sølvfisk, while they also are darker. In addition, skægkræ incredibly long halebørster and the feelers. They are also harder to get rid of, than sølvfisk is.

The good news is however, that skægkræ not harmful to health, even though you could be tempted to believe it.

however, One should still be a bit careful, when you discover skægkræ in his home.

- One can say that the (skægkræ, red.) is in family with sølvfisk, but they are not dangerous or harmful. However, they are in the entire dwelling, when they come, and it is also why people come and say that they will not have them in the home, says Claus Schultz.

Skægkræ in the home can be found several places. They are particularly happy in order to stay warm, dry and dark places such as under moldings, in wall, in small spaces and cupboards. Therefore, it is a good idea to make thoroughly clean, if you notice skægkræ in your home.
