A quick response – Living and working in and around Watford, we can offer a same-day service or attend your property at a time that suits you.
Knowledgeable and qualified – as well as holding the industry standard level 2 certification in ‘Pest Control and Management’, awarded by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) we are also members of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA). This body provides ongoing support and updates on current practices and pest control methods. We have also completed several specialist courses – such as additional courses on rodents, insects and specialist techniques such as gassing – and other pest control techniques.
We've had the pleasure of helping hundreds of customers in and around Watford, Bushey, Borehamwood, Rickmansworth, Kings Langley, Radlett and Abbots Langley with their Pest Control problems. We've dealt with rat control & mice control, pigeon control, bird proofing through to bedbug control, cockroaches and flea control to mention a few of the more common vermin that may trouble you. Take a look at our testimonials!
Bees: Due to the dangerously decreasing numbers of bee populations, we only treat honey bee colonies if they are a serious problem or health risk to humans.
Bird proofing is a method of preventing birds such as pigeons, from landing, roosting and nesting on buildings. A variety of humane tactics are used from spiking through to netting. Many companies and businesses are now investing in bird proofing techniques rather than spending hard earned profits on building repairs.
Many insects, bugs and rodents are showing signs of resistance to traditional insecticides and pesticides. When this happens, various companies create new and more potent chemicals for use within the pest control industry. Some of these chemical treatments are only available to licensed pest controllers like us. Many shop bought chemicals are no longer effective.
AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT EXAMPLE
One resilient insect is the bedbug. Many customers are too embarrassed to ‘admit’ they have these bugs sharing their bed, believing that it is as a result of poor hygiene. The truth is their resilience to treatment and their liking for our body heat means that quite often we bring these bedbugs home from holiday. Unfortunately, once bedbugs have been brought in to the home they can crawl very quickly from room to room. They spread through gaps and holes in the floors and walls and are easily transported between homes and other buildings, in luggage, furniture and bedding. This is how bedbugs are spread – they are NOT attracted to dirt.
Treatment – effective chemical treatment as well as bedding being washed and dried on a high temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes to kill the adults, eggs and the young.
As part of our comprehensive service to you, we also offer advice and pest control methods that attempt to prevent any future pest problems. This could be as simple as drawing wasps away from your home by sealing bins more effectively.
AN EFFECTIVE PREVENTION EXAMPLE
Cockroaches are an insect that can present a danger to human health, spreading nasty illnesses such as gastroenteritis and salmonella. When faced with a cockroach infestation, we chemically treat the area making sure all adult cockroaches and their young are eradicated.
However, we also need to prevent future problems by looking to seal all the gaps, holes and, where possible, any pipes as this is how these insects enter the home. They also use these crevices and holes to hide in during day and they are nocturnal, coming out at night to feed and breed. Therefore to prevent any future cockroach infestations, they need to be denied three things - food, water and places to hide:
Store all food in sealed containers
Food waste and spills cleared away
Food debris etc. cleared from under fridges and other appliances
Kitchen and other food preparation areas kept clean and tidy
Animal waste and food cleared away and not left overnight
Compost and waste bins should be effectively sealed
Empty liquids from buckets etc. not leaving them overnight
Fix plumbing leaks and use dehumidifiers if necessary to control moisture
Remove clutter and other rubbish as soon as possible
Keep under the sink clean and tidy
