Pestforce Gloucester Pest Control

Living locally in Gloucester means that I have an excellent understanding of the locality and some of the prevalent pest control issues. I’m Jock Muirhead and I am a fully qualified pest controller, with a Level 2 Certificate in Pest Control and Management (awarded by the Royal Society of Public Health) and offer a full, comprehensive pest control and management service in Gloucester and all surrounding areas.

When you contact me, I guarantee you’ll receive;

  • a free, comprehensive survey
  • a no obligation quote for the work
  • a professional, efficient service
  • a competitive price, with an additional discount for pensioners
  • pest control methods (including equipment and chemicals) that are child, pet and environmentally friendly

I deal with a wide variety of pest control problems and have successfully dealt with;

Honey Bees We are now fully into the bee season. All bees whether swarming or already established will not sting if left unprovoked and should always be left undisturbed if possible. If honeybees are swarming and causing a public safety issue we will endeavour to relocate the bees with a local beekeeper. Pestforce Gloucester will always try to relocate all bees, as they are very important for our environment. Please call Pestforce Gloucester for advice and a free quote.

Bumblebees Bumblebees are very docile creatures and will not sting unless seriously provoked. Nests can usually be left well alone. However if Bumblebees are causing a serious issue, Pestforce Gloucester does offer a bumblebee nest removal service where possible, and safely relocate the bees elsewhere in the county. Please call Pestforce Gloucester for a free quotation and advice.

Spiders have recently received a great deal of publicity in the national media. In the Gloucester area there has been a significant rise in reported sightings of False Widow Spiders(Steatoda nobilis). These spiders do only bite in self defence and in most cases these bites are similar to a wasp sting, however it has been known for a small number of people to suffer with an extreme reaction to a bite. I have recently been called to several properties including schools to carry out treatments for these spiders. you are most likely to observe the spiders in garages, sheds and around doors and window ledges. Call Pestforce Gloucester now for a free quote and advice.

Birds can be a nuisance in Gloucester, whether its starlings, seagulls or pigeons. Bird proofing methods are an excellent investment on buildings as roosting pigeons, for example, can cause expensive damage in a relatively short period of time. This damage can be visible but there can also be hidden problems, such as bird mites, fleas, ticks, beetles, maggots and flies. I currently work with a local authority housing programme to complete the installation of a large pigeon netting and trapping programme. Bird proofing – which can include netting and spiking – offers an effective solution to bird problems on domestic properties, businesses and factories.

Rodents- it is approaching that time of year when these pests start to invade buildings. Rats, mice and squirrels all prefer nice warm insulated building rather being out in the cold and wet. Not only do these animals cause damage to the fabric of a building, they also gnaw through electric cables (see above photo for evidence of squirrel damage to a cable) in attics posing a severe risk of fire unbeknown to the occupants. I carry out treatments for these pests using a variety of humane traps and rodenticides. Call Pestforce Gloucester for a FREE quote and survey!


Wasp and hornet problems can also be of great concern, as they can build their nests in high ‘human traffic’ area. Wasps and hornets don’t like to be disturbed and if they feel under threat or attack, they can act defensively by swarming as a group with people receiving multiple nasty stings. We can quickly and easily remove the problem – and if we have to come back to the same nest, we will treat the problem for free! I provide a specialist wasp nest removal Gloucester service.

Other Pests: Squirrels, bedbugs, fleas, rats, mice, rabbits, moles, cluster flies, ants, carpet beetles, bugs, midges, moths, woodworm, birds, pigeons,spiders starlings, seagulls, foxes and many more!

How I work & can help:

At a time convenient for you, I will carry out a survey, explaining fully what I’ve found and how it can be treated or solved. You can be confident that I will deal quickly with your problem, no matter how large or small.

Here are a few examples of my work:

  1. Cleaning flats, apartments and houses after tenants with pets have left, eradicating fleas or any other problems so that the landlord or letting agency has a clean property to re-let.
  2. I’ve eradicated and controlled pest issues in domestic properties including sheltered housing, student flats as well as outdoor areas such as farms, sporting facilities (e.g. golf courses, bowling green etc).
  3. I’ve worked at commercial premises including pubs, hotels and other food outlets. We offer commercial customers a competitive annual package, payable over 4 easy instalments. As well as effective pest control you’ll also receive a comprehensive service record.

In fact, I can work in any situation where there is a pest control problem. I don’t charge a call out fee during normal working hours 0800hrs - 1800hrs so if you have a pest control problem don’t hesitate to call me, Jock Muirhead at Pestforce Gloucester Pest Control for a free survey and no obligation quote.

Able to come the same day to remove a wasps nest & did a brilliant job.

Jock was friendly & professional - will definitely be recommending to friends & family!


Rebecca, Birdlip

Called at about 4:30, jock arrived 30 minutes later and removed the wasp nest.
Highly recommended


Martin Wakely


I requested a call back on a Wednesday evening around 8:30 and was presently surprised to get a call from Jock that evening. Jock came the next day at a time to suit myself and was very informative and helpful about the wasps I had discovered flying into a hole in the wall of our house. A few hours after the treatment and the wasps were nowhere to be seen. I would definitely recommend Jock and would use him again if had the need.


Katie Palmer

I requested a call back after 6pm Thursday evening after finding bees swarming around the outside of our porch.
Call back first thing Friday morning and they were dealt with by 2pm!
Fantastic friendly service and I would definitely recommend to others.



Great service Jock kept us fully informed and even took some pictures so my children could see how many bees were in gardern.Would defiantly use again and pass his details on to anyone who required this kind of service. Great thanks again.

Question about pest control in Gloucester

I called you this morning regarding my problem with leatherjackets and I would like to say thank you for your honesty with informing me it's not deemed as pests, therefore, no chemical treatment available. This shows your professionalism in your role as some people would just treat the lawn and charge me for it. So thanks again, I have ordered a non-chemical product from Amazon called nemesys leatherjacket control so hopefully, it does what it says so I can regrow my poor lawn.

April 2017



"Jock responded quickly to my call then dealt thoroughly with the squirrels gnawing wires etc in our loft space, including blocking up their entrance point to deter future intruders. He was cheerful and efficient and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again if we need to."



Highly recommended, quick, efficient and made me laugh what else could you wish for. Many thanks. Regards Teresa

Teresa, Gloucester

"Saw wasps coming out of my shed to notice there was a wasp nest inside. Looked online for pest control and they were giving me quotes and couldn't come next day, then I found Jock's website. I decided to give him a ring and he told me he would be at my house within 2 hours. He was on time and got rid of the nest very quickly and efficiently. Jock is a very friendly guy and I would recommend him to everyone who has a pest control problem. "


'I discovered a wasps nest in my garage and phoned Pest force, considering it was a Sunday morning, I was greeted with a friendly reception and Jock was only to happy to help. Pest force provided a competitively priced, prompt and effective service and came out and removed the wasps nest the same day (within 20minutes of my call!) Very happy with the service and I would highly recommend using them for your pest problems


Miss A Stephens

We are a large primary school in Gloucester and needed someone urgently to resolve a Bumble Bee problem in our Infant playground. Jock from Pest Force came out within the hour and found and dealt with the Bee’s nest. He was able to relocate it without killing the Bee’s and made our playground safe for the children again. Jock was a very personable character and easy to deal with. We would definitely recommend his services to other establishments and individuals alike. He provided a specialist service for a very competitive price. Thank you.

Heron Primary School

I would like to say thank you for the way you got rid of my bumble bee nest so quickly and efficiently.
When I saw the bees going in and out above my bedroom window I was literally traumatised. 
You reassured me when I phoned you Tuesday morning you would sort it and you did just that Tuesday afternoon. 
I would certainly call you again if I was unfortunate to have this situation again.
Thank you


Pearl B

Hi Jock,
A fantastic service. Prompt response, swift results and an NHS staff discount thrown in as well (thanks!).
We have no hesitation in recommending you and Pestforce and will certainly be using them again should the need arise.
Hopefully we do not need to do so, as our garden 'rat problem' has been sorted.
Great job.


Linda and Steve, Gloucester

Hello Jock,
Many thanks for the excellent service you have provided in getting rid of the rat problem I had.
I was particularly pleased with the knowledgeable and thorough way in which you assessed and dealt with the problem.
Thank you again; should the need arise, I will not hesitate to call on you in the future.

Ron, Tuffley

I couldn't recommend Jock and Pestforce highly enough.  We had a huge wasp nest in the garden and another in the PVC cladding of our second storey.  They had started to gain access to the inside of our house and we had a large number of dopey wasps, crawling along the floor where we could hardly see them.  Not great with three children (one of them a toddler) and two dogs!  One of my daughter's had already been stung.  I called Pestforce, after finding their number online one afternoon, and received a callback from Jock within the hour.  I was outside of his area but when he realised that the man from our area was unavailable for a few days - he came himself the very next morning.  He was bang on time, dealt with the problem very quickly and I was extremely happy with the price and service.  Hopefully I will not need his services again (!) but if I am visited by any more unwelcome guests of any description, I will definitely use this company again.  Thanks again.

Kev and I would like to thank you for your expert help in dealing with our rat problem.  You have been reassuring and professional throughout the whole process. Your service was extremely prompt and effective. With the best intentions meant I hope we will not need your services again but if we do I will not hesitate to call on you.


Cindy, Gloucestershire

Dear Jock,
Thank you for your professional and speedy service. I would recommend you to friends and family. Thank you again for great service.


Vicky C . Gloucester

Hi Jock. Top job on Fri and wasp free!thanks for being so prompt.


Dawn, Birdlip


Hi Jock,
Firstly can I say what a good job you did removing the wasp nest a couple weeks ago. Problem solved!! 
Thank you again for doing a great job and making it so humorous! 



Rich G ,Gloucestershire

A great service. Excellent communication, prompt response and swift results, I have no hesitation in recommending Pestforce and will certainly be using them again should the need arise." 


Tim, Gloucester

Jock was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable and dealt with our wasp problem within our home promptly .

We were made aware at each stage what was happening.
On completion, Jock tidied up and left extremely happy knowing the wasp nest was completely cleared.
Would highly recommend.

Sue and Nick O'Reilly

We highly recommend the Services offered by Pestforce Gloucester, we have had the occasion to use Jock twice in the last three months, first for a Rat problem, which was dealt with speedily efficiently and effectively with a positive outcome, no rats! 
 Our second request to Jock was for Woodworm treatment  all completed professionally with no fuss.
Jocks attention to detail for customer service is second to none in our opinion.

Lee & Sue, Gloucester

We had been having problems with rats in the attic for a while and not being able to sleep because of the constant scratching above  our bedroom ceiling.  I got my wife to ring around some pest controllers but they were so expensive and then there was no guarantee they would solve the problem but then we came across Jock Muirhead   at PestForce what a great guy and from the first time we met him and he explained his methods we knew are worries would be over. I think he came to the house over eight times at least and put up plenty of traps and poisons and now we can honestly say the rats have now gone and we are getting a good nights sleep again. I am a OAP and Jock reduced the bill because of that and must say we were over the moon with what it cost us considering all the time he spent at our house. I would highly recommend Jock at Pestforce and would only use him again and consider no other company if the rats did come back.
Thanks Again Jock


Keith S

Just to say a huge thank you for the way in which you responded to our cry for help when we found rat visiting us in our kitchen. Your response was quick, (within hours!) and that compared to two other companies, one of which did not respond at all, and the other which took over 48 hours! You discussed possible solutions and then agreed a plan of action which ultimately was successful. Best of all though as far as we were concerned was the 24/7 back up provided. We had calls early each morning to see if the offending rodent had been caught, and then when it was you were on the doorstep on half and hour. It was, all in all an excellent service. Thank you so much!


T Evans

My wife and I were concerned when we saw rats in our garden, as we were trying to sell our house. Having chosen Pestforce to help we were very pleased with the service given. Following our request to help the response was speedy and efficient. Jock gave you the impression of someone who wanted to help and knew what he was doing. After setting the bait and several visits to see what progress was being made, the problem appeared to have been solved with the minimum of fuss. However, with the promise of a return should the problem reoccur within a week. Even the invoice was reasonable. A good job all round.



Thank you Jock for your excellent response and speedy elimination of our rat problem


Lucy b Crowther

Cannot recommend pest force Gloucester highly enough, called on a Sunday evening and talked to Jock about a bees nest on my property, within the hour jock arrived and dealt with the problem. Very professional and friendly guy. Good price for a Sunday call out and first class service.

Brian L Ruardean

Dear Jock
Just a quick line to thank you so much for the fast, honest and efficient service offered by Pestforce.  I had been online and made contact with another Pest Control service in Gloucestershire, 1 email and 2 telephone calls later I did not even have the courtesy of a response from them.  I rang Pestforce in desperation, had an immediate quotation AND a visit within 3 hours, at the time stated.  It really doesn't get any better than that.   I shall not hesitate to recommend Pestforce to anyone who needs the type of service you offer.
Your price was really fair, especially with the Pensioner discount, and once again would like to express my grateful thanks for the excellent work you did today.
Kind regards

Genia, Gloucester


A fast and friendly service that exceeded my expectations on cost and speed when finding an environmentally friendly way of reacting to my bee problem. Jock, the gentleman who attended gave a professional and informative service, even taking time out to explain and reassure my neighbour who was also affected by my problem.

Mr B Quedgeley

I wont mention where my shop is, but I now have peice of mind that there will not be anymore mice chewing my stock as I have a yrs contract with Pest force and things are looking better already! Thank you Pest Force :)
