Welcome to Pestforce South East London Pest Control - serving all SE Postcodes.
From the shoreline of the Thames to the foothills of Crystal Palace, Pestforce will control your pest problems.
Steve Turner is the senior pest controller serving south of the river Thames. For almost two decades Steve has been managing vermin and insect infestations in homes, schools, shops, pubs, clubs, places to eat, offices and churches across all SE postcodes.
Whilst we’d rather they did not share our spaces with them, pests have a long tie with humans and are here to stay, despite our best efforts. With few urban predators, bountiful food supply and diverse ecological conditions, our pesky urban residents take advantage from our lifestyles and the rich pickings from our city.

House mice are the conquering heroes of pests in SE London and Steve’s most common call out.
Ever since we’ve been holed up in caves, mice have been caching in on a human civilisation. Instinctively fearful of prey and needing protection from the harshness of the British weather, city-born mice have found a shortcut to an easier life than their countryside cousins - our cosy homes. Pre-built access pipes lead straight into Mouse Utopia where good food and shelter is it in abundance.
Q: How can I tell if I have mice? A: Use your senses of sight, smell and sound to detect an infiltration of mice.
You'll know you have squatters by the patter of tiny feet at night. Squeaking is the conversation of a mischief of mice and brawling youngsters.
Droppings found in the tides of cupboards, along skirtings, or on surface tops, are a major clue you have mice. Small and dark, about the size of a grain of rice, they can be scattered everywhere that a mouse has zipped along.
A musty smell is a tell-tale sign that you might have a house mouse. As a pheromone trail, they constantly leak urine wherever they go. Despite the potential for disease, there is no real cause for alarm. Cleaning up droppings with a disinfectant spray and making your house as mouse proof as possible should be enough.
The hidden confines of a cupboard, snug bedding of loft insulation, runways under the floorboards, the climbable inner surface of cavity walls, even the assault course of a toy box, provide the perfect home.
The house mouse can fit through any gap big enough to poke a pencil through. In the human jungle, mice explore every nook and cranny nibbling anything to see if it is edible, including power cables. They chew clean cuts through wood, paper and clothing. If you find gnawing debris such as wood shavings, shredded paper, holes in containers, holes under counters and holes around pipes, it's highly likely you've got sitting tenants.
You may see greasy smear marks as mice rub along their routes, particular around holes or around corners.
Our food is perfect for a mouse's high metabolism. Mice live in the fast lane burning up huge amounts of calories, so they have appetites to match. As expected, London’s mice make up their home within a few metres from food. Just a few crumbs and an untidy cupboard to nest in are enough.
City slicker mice are nocturnal so are frustratingly hard to see, nibbling on food left out at night or vanishing the moment you appear. If you see a cheeky mouse during the day, it could indicate there is a large population is blooming within your home. Mice are prolific breeders; in a matter of weeks, a few mice can become a dozen.
Steve’s trained eye will detect if you have mice and lay down a deadly assault course to battle their demise. Call Steve on 07469 391780 now.
Rats are a big issue in South East London. The River Thames has long been a major rat-magnet. But lately, rats have been thriving more than ever due to construction work for the 2012 Olympics and Thameslink. Abandoned properties, all day and night buffets, sewers and our houses make the SE postcodes a perfect home for rats. As our urban sprawl continues, we're making more habitats for the Cockney big squeakers.
