Welcome to Pestforce Barnsley, Wombwell, Goldthorpe & Royston Pest Control & surrounding areas of South Yorkshire.
As a family run, local pest control business, we offer a fast response to your pest control problems which, we know is the response you are looking for. I’m Malcolm Dent and, along with my family, I own and operate an independent pest control company in and around the Barnsley area. We live locally and have done for many years. We know the area well and can offer you an amazing pest control service;
I am a highly skilled and qualified pest control professional. I hold current, valid Level 2 certificates in Pest Control and Management from the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH). This qualification covers all pest problems from bedbug infestation, to being over-run by rodents through to nuisance birds. This qualification also covers the use and transportation of chemicals and pesticides. I am also certified in Wildlife Management and Urban Bird Management and hold a current IPAF Certificate. This means that you can be confident that I know what I am doing and that any equipment or treatments I use are safe for you, your family, pets and other wildlife.
I am also an active member of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA). This non-profit umbrella organisation offers ongoing professional development for pest control professionals.
I am also a member of the British Traditional Molecatchers Register (BTMR). This organisation promotes the use of traditional and ethical practice in catching moles.
We also offer specialist treatments such as bird and rabbit proofing. We never underestimate the damage a rabbit can do; multiply the damage caused by one rabbit by several rabbits, and you have a hefty repair bill! Birds flocking and roosting can also be a problem and we are qualified and skilled in fitting a variety of bird and rabbit proofing systems to homes, commercial buildings and other premises or areas. Long term it’s wiser to invest your money in prevention rather than cure. We offer annual contracts, when you contact us we can advise you further.
Our pest control work and treatments are all fully insured; we carry Public Liability insurance up to £5million. We are DBS/CRB Checked. Certificate No. 001472854001

As you know I have not been at work since September and it does not look like I will be able to return at all. My husband has managed to kepp things going brilliantly but it is not a long term solution, so we have decided to finish all together in March. I wanted to let you know and to thank you so much for the excellent service you have provided over the years. Professional, friendly and thorough are the words I would use.

I would like to thank you for coming to my property to help me with my rat problem. Every Wednesday for the last three weeks you have come to check on the problem and it now looks like my pesky rats are gone. You made me feel very at ease and I was confident from the first visit that I had made the right choice in calling you, I appreciate the courtesy call before hand and it is reassuring that you will be back the following week to check on how tings are going. I will definetly be recommending you to my friends in the future.
Very many thanks to your team for getting rid of the giant wasps in our loft, brilliant service (our council could not come out for a week). Grateful for the way you tackled the job and the super clean up. Can highly recommed you. Thanks again
I recently used Malcolm from Pestforce. Excellent service. I had a problem with rats in a property that I rent out. Punctual, extremely professional, very efficient and a fair price too. Would recommend 100%.
I recently discovered a wasps nest whilst cutting a very thick ivy hedge in the garden, this resulted in several stings and an extremely swollen hand and leg. I contacted Malcolm and he came the next day, job done and large nest removed. Unfortunately the next day whilst starting hedge trimming duties again the wasps were back with a vengeance. I called Malcolm who returned to find another nest higher and deeper in the hedge. He did the same again, nest gone. The garden is now wasp free. Malcolm offered a brilliant, reliable and professional service that I would thoroughly recommend.
I have had a problem with fleas for a few weeks after letting a cat stay whist in the process of being rehomed. i controlled them for a while and thought I had nailed them with flea bombs and regular hoovering, etc etc. I called Malcolm last night after getting to my wits end with these insignificant, stupid little creatures.He gave me tons of advice how how to get ready for the treatment and what to do about washing things etc. He has been this morning and done my entire house and after getting back home there is not a single flea in sight, just dead insects everywhere, from spiders to flies-and more importantly, I have noticed dead fleas on the duvets. First time I have been a Pestforce customer, but I have to say-second to none in service. Absolutly brilliant. I can finally relax and not worry about being mauled by midgetised nuclear terrors!
We moved into our current property over nine years ago and have always had a problem with ants. We have tried every spray / powder/ gell we could find but the best we managed was to contain them. This year we even built an extension over where the ants lived. Tis made no differance. We decided to call on the services of Pestforce who reacted quickly and visited our property on the time and day arranged. It was clear that Malcolm Knew his job well and the treatment was applied quicky and with no fuss or mess. The price was reasonable and we have since had no ants. I would certainly recommed the services of Malcolm from Pestforce

I would like to highly recommend Malcolm Dent from Pestforce for helping me get rid of my mole problem. Malcolm was extremely prompt and very good at setting mole traps which caught three of them. This certainly beats my father in law stood over a mole hill with a shovel, which was starting to wear a bit thin after about three hours. Malcolm is definitly the right man for the job.

On Friday afternoon, 24th June 2011, I contacted Malcolm Dent of Pestforce to ask him to inspect my therapy training studio at Cudworth, Barnsley. A cellar joist had been replaced the day before due to woodworm activity and I needed treatment on the rest of the joists to ensure it did not happen again. I had one quote but they could't do the job for two weeks. I also needed the work to be done around my busy work schedule as I had training courses booked in every couple of days for the forseeable future. Malcolm came the very next morning, Saturday 24th June, to give a quote and said he could do the work right away! Less then two hours later everything was done and we were back home having lunch. I would recommend Malcolm for his professional attitude, his knowledge on the subject and his flexibility to do the work according to the clients needs.

When the tenant of one of my properties got mice I called Pestforce who came out and got rid of them for me. I will use them again for any other problems I may get without hesitation.

Thank you Malcolm for sorting out the pest problem in my loft so cheerfully and promptly. Everything from the initial phone call, to checking the loft, boarding up any unwanted roof holes and removing the pests was completed efficiently and professionally. I would not hestitate to use Pestforce again and will definately recommend you to anyone who has a similar problem.
I tried another pest control company when I found I had rats in the house and they failed to get rid of them for me. One call to pestforce who came the next day within one week all the rats where gone and the hole they had made behind the fridge filled up to stop any more getting in. Very friendly and efficient service from start to finish
