Pestforce Edinburgh, Livingston, Queensferry, West Lothian, East Lothian & Midlothian Pest Control.
I’m George Buchan and I am proud to offer you a holistic pest control service as part of Pestforce Edinburgh.
I was born and raised in Edinburgh and now work in Edinburgh and the surrounding area. I enjoy living and working in the great outdoors, breeding quality gun dogs who have a fantastic life, picking up birds such as grouse, pheasant and partridge in the beautiful Scottish countryside. We are an outdoor family, with my son being a local gamekeeper, perfectly complementing my hobby of country shoots.
I have managed large number of employees across Scotland, Northern Ireland and North east England in a previous role. You can be confident that when you call me to help you with a pest control problem, you are in safe, knowledgeable hands!
Pest control problems
Pest issues can be complex issues to solve and so I need to have an array of methods, equipments and insecticides to hand to get the pest under control;
Bedbugs, for example, are an increasing problem especially in accommodation where there is quick turn over of residents such as student accommodation. My motto is to be ‘proactive rather than reactive’ which is why I offer a bi-annual contract to letting businesses. This contract includes two site visits per year to survey properties. In my experience, investing money in a longer term contract pays dividends. I can identify any potential bedbug problems and deal with them sooner rather than later. In the long run, costs will be lower than reacting to infestations. These surveys are carried out discreetly.
Mice and rats make up on average one phone call a day to my pest control business. Left unchecked, their population can explode causing massive damage in nest-to-no-time. Edinburgh, with its magnificent Victorian buildings and homes, provide the ideal environment for rats and mice to thrive. Quite often these buildings are linked, providing fantastic rat and mice ‘gangways’ and entry to properties. I can rid buildings of infestations and then provide ‘proofing’ for buildings and homes so that rat and mice infestations are kept to a minimum.
Urban foxes are growing in number and whilst it may be a glorious sight to see a fox in the city, they can also cause some problems. I HUMANELY trap and remove these foxes to a safe area. I receive many calls from families to remove foxes as their use of the family garden as their toilet is not safe for children to play in.
Rabbit control is another pest control issue I get many calls on from both homes and businesses. Rabbits can damage gardens and crops etc. in a very short space of time. Investing in rabbit proofing techniques will be the best investment you can make!
