Approach to pest control in London
Our way of working is Exclusion, Restriction and, as a last resort, Destruction.
‘Exclusion’ means that we look at how a pest is entering a building and then make sure all entrance points are blocked.
‘Restriction’ means creating unfavourable conditions for pests.
‘Destruction’ means the chemical and physical elimination of pests. If appropriate, we prefer to use traditional traps to capture rodents - they are safer for humans and other animals and we always try to use the minimal amount of chemicals to get the job done. We never blanket spray and only use pesticides as a last resort. For example, we use non-toxic silica dust to dehydrate insects such as cockroaches, and pheromone traps for moth control.
We have all the accreditations our London customers would expect and more. Most involve rigorous third-party inspections, providing customers with the assurance that our business is run in a professional way using the highest industry standards. To see a list of our certifications, click here.
We are also a proud member of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA). All our London technicians are certified by the BPCA and we adhere to the BPCA Codes of Best Practice.
Effective pest control always requires lateral thinking, particularly in cities like London, as no two situations are exactly the same. We have the knowledge, experience and expertise to tackle any pest problem whether it involves rodents, insects or pest birds.
Pest control for your London home
If you live in London rats are a fact of life. Author Martin Soames in an article in Country Life debunks the myth that you are never more than six feet away from a rat but we should all still be on the lookout for evidence such as droppings and take action as soon as possible. Rats and mice breed very quickly, especially in London, and once they get a foothold the problem will take longer to deal with and will be more costly.
Pest control for your London business
Keeping your premises pest free, meeting your legal requirements and having a good hygiene rating from Environmental Health officers should be a top priority especially if you are a food outlet, a hotel or a business in London that serves food to staff.
Hundreds of businesses across the UK are fined or closed down every year because they haven’t invested in a pest prevention contract. An annual prevention contract gives you peace of mind and removes unwanted financial surprises, as expenditure is agreed at the start. For many premises, a normal contract will be for eight inspections per year, each with a full report.
