There are around 20,000 different types of known flying and crawling insects in the UK. Urban areas are always attractive to crawling insects as they provide numerous nooks and crannies in which insects can feed, hide and breed. Commercial and domestic day to day activities can act as attractants for crawling insects as well as providing an easy means for transportation to new sites to infest.
