Welcome to Pestforce Derbyshire Pest Control

I am Darren Cowley and I own and operate Pestforce Derbyshire. We offer one of the highest quality pest control services around. We service the entire Derbyshire area which includes Alfreton, Ambergate, Ashbourne, Baslow, Belper, Brailsford, Derby, Ilkeston, Matlock, Worksworth and all surrounding areas.


About me


I come from a farming background and have seen, first hand, the devastation an uncontrolled pest can cause to buildings, land and crops. At the same time, I also have a respect for wildlife and nature as well as a passion for the outdoor life.


Living and working locally means that not only can I offer a quick response, but I also know the area very well. I currently cover over 15,000 acres of farmland and believe I have a proven effectiveness in dealing with both country and urban pests.


Qualified, skilled and trusted


I hold the pest control industry standard qualification, a level 2 certification in ‘Pest Control & Management’. This qualification is awarded by the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) and is no lightweight course. The pass mark is set very high, and all three modules must be completed within 12 months of starting the course. It includes detailed work on vertebrates, invertebrates as well as the safe use, storage and transportation of chemicals.


We are a organisation that keeps pest control technicians up to date with current good practice, legislation and other essential information. We use a mix of modern and traditional methods including the use of aluminium sulphate gas.


Wildlife and its preservation for future generations is a passion of mine, hence I hold a ‘Wildlife Management Certificate’. This specialist qualification allows me to practice and excel in maintain the balance within woodlands and other countryside settings of the ecological balance. IN other words, I can maintain control on the population numbers of wood and feral pigeons, foxes, rabbits, moles, magpies and crows.


We hold a full ‘firearm and shotgun’ certificates


We am also an accredited member of the British Traditional Molecatchers Register (BTMR), a body that promotes the traditional and humane methods of trapping and relocating moles.


We are also a member of the Derbyshire Trusted Traders meaning I have passed the stringent vetting procedures of Trading Standards and Derbyshire County Council, meaning you can buy my services with confidence.


Which pests?


There are a huge number of pests from the pesky insects to larger animals. They only cause us problems when their numbers spiral out of control and they look to our gardens, land and properties to make their home, as well as seeking sources of food.


I deal with all pests – no matter how large or small – but one pest I am called to deal with on a regular basis is the mole.


Moles are seen as shy animals, when in fact they remain in their tunnels due to poor eyesight rather than shyness. Their near-blindness makes them easy prey for hunters during the day and even when they do venture out at night, they can easily fall victim to a hungry owl.


They are also sociable animals to a certain extent, with communal corridors linking one moles tunnel to the next and to the outside world. They eat small insects including worms, which is why they are the foe of many a gardener. In fact, moles can be attracted to landscaped areas, especially is a large amount of organic matter is dug through the soil, making it very rich and fertile, and full of worms – every moles delight!


This is when moles can become a problem. Molehills are left behind as a result of them burrowing their tunnels and are a sorry sight for many a local gardener and grounds man.


There is only one effective treatment. That is the humane trapping and removal of the mole. The tunnels also need to be effectively sealed, as shortly after removal another mole will move in and the problem starts all over again.


Rabbits quickly damage gardens, flowers and trees as well as agricultural crops.We provide a competent service for the control and removal of rabbits.

We took out a contract with PEST FORCE following a mole problem on our field.In all our dealings they have provided an excellent service and follow-up.I found the cost of the annual contract particularly competitive.We have not used them for any other service but feel we would get equally good service.

Mr J Dey [Headteacher]

I find Pestforce to be a valuable part of my farms working life , over the last year Darren and his team have come along at a moments notice and sorted out moles,mice,wasps and rabbit issues.

Personally I would'nt use any other firm, it's not just the great work, it's also the great service that Pestforce provide with a can do attitude. They really are great value for money.



Fallinge Farm


We moved into quite a prestigious property in June 2010 with an extensive garden and since then upon until we called Pest Force in we had problems EVERY night waking us up with their screaming noises and leaving us remains of dead animals the next day along with faeces etc…  With 2no young children it is very worrying as you cannot let them play in a garden on their own.  I had tried everything put new boundaries in (wire netted holes) tried all the old poachers tips “creosote, marking your boundaries” I bought a Guardinage Machine – ALL WITH NO PREVENTIVE RESULTS.  Having enough we contacted Derbyshire County Council who put us in touch with Erewash Borough Council who advised us to contact a Pest Control Specialist.  This is when I contacted Darren Cowley from Pest Force – Darren and his team came to our property the next day assessed the surrounding properties and after assessment decided to place some fox traps down.  This is part of an ongoing plan to remove the pests – to date 4 fox has been caught and Darren and his team will not stop until they are removed.  Pest Force offer a fantastic value for money and professional service that all I can say is second to none and I have no problems in recommending them.
Thanks Darren
Yours faithfully
