Welcome to Pestforce Pest Control Bath.
We are a local trusted pest control company serving the city and the surrounding areas nearby.
Pest problems are far more common than you think and we have helped hundreds of clients get their properties back to being pest-free.
We have a range of proven and effective pest control solutions that will not only erradicate your pest problem but prevent pests from ever coming back.
If you have pests in your home, garden, loft space, or your roofing, get in touch. After all, you don't want bugs and beasties taking up residence in your house with you. Reclaim your home from your pest problem with our expert help.
When you think of pests, probably the first type that comes to mind is the rat. If you have ever had rats in your home or your place of business, you will probably appreciate the importance of finding good rat control services in Bath.
One of the first signs you might have rats is when you see droppings. These droppings are generally surprisingly large, and you will probably be taken aback by them at first. That shock can be distinctly unpleasant, but it’s worth paying attention to it rather than ignoring it. Of course, you might also merely see a rat in your home, in which case you know you have them, or at least one of them.
You might not have such bad feelings towards mice, but they are nonetheless not the kind of animal you really want to share your space with. Our Bath mice control team deal with mice every day, and are well adept at ensuring they stay away from your premises in the future.
As with rats, you might spot mice droppings on the floor, or you might even hear them scurrying around at night. If so, it’s time to call the experts in. Left to their own devices, mice may well soon overrun your home and nest in a number of parts of the home. That’s not something you want.
You are no doubt very used to at least seeing wasps in your garden in the height of summer, and sometimes as late as September. But you know you need to call a Bath wasp control and wasp nest removal team if you start to see plenty of them around your garden and home - or especially if you fear they might have started nesting nearby.
While bees are a necessary part of the ecosystem, you still don’t want them in your home any more than wasps. Finding trustworthy and reliable Bath bee control and bee’s nest removal and rehoming can be challenging, but you really need look no further than Pestforce.
Although bees are generally friendly, like wasps they will certainly not think twice about attacking you if they feel threatened. That means you should probably avoid going too near their nest, and you should certainly not try to rehome it yourself.
Many people actually find squirrels adorable, but no matter what you personally think of them, to have them running around your home or business premises is not going to be pleasant or desirable. Without the help of a decent and trusted Bath squirrel control team, you could end up with damaged foundations to the building, or at the very least a garden that is overrun by the furry rodents.
Bear in mind that we have different treatment options available depending on the type of squirrel you have in your home, with the red squirrel being a protected species and the grey not. But in any case, you can always expect us to be humane in our handling of all pests, squirrels included.
Birds in the home or in business premises can be a real nuisance, not least because they often become agitated when you go near them. Good, professional Bath bird control teams know how to manage them however, so it is worth calling us to find out more if you have a bird problem. They might be roosting in your shed or outhouse, or even in your attic - wherever you have birds, if they are causing you a nuisance, you should absolutely make sure you call us as soon as possible.
We can even provide professional pigeon proofing, to ensure that no pigeon returns to your home ever again to try and nest. This is a safe and humane means of keeping birds away from your home without causing them any damage or distress, as it is a purely preventative measure.
Arguably some of the more frustrating and nuisance pests are those which you can’t even see. Bath bed bug control teams are skilled at finding bed bugs, but you will probably struggle to see them with the naked eye, for they are so miniscule.
You will know that you might have bed bugs if you start to notice bumps or itchy rashes on your skin in the morning after sleeping. Likewise, your bed might be itchy to lie in at any time of day. This can be really unsettling and unpleasant, and you should have it dealt with as soon as possible.
Probably the creepiest of all the creepy-crawlies, the cockroach is an unwelcome sight in any building. Our Bath cockroach control professionals are well-versed in dealing with them, but in all likelihood you will not enjoy seeing one. When you do see one, it means it’s time to do something about them - fast.
If you allow a cockroach infestation to continue, it can cause some serious problems in your home. Not least of these problems would be an increased likelihood of disease in you and your family members, and the possibility of sharing a bed with one of these critters. Yuk!
Although it is typically homes with pets that get fleas, actually they can crop up anywhere - and in many commercial premises too. Our Bath flea control professionals normally find that a home or place of business is riddled with them by the time they get there to sort it out, and that’s because they are so hard to see.
However, unlike bed bugs they are not invisible. If you look closely, you can probably see them on your pet’s fur or on the furniture dotted around the home. You might even spot the trademark jump that fleas have. If you have started itching, or you have started to notice bumps or rashes on your skin, you should definitely think about calling in the pest control services in Bath.
While all of these are some of our most common pests that we deal with, we will really work to humanely get rid of any pest you might have in your home or place of business.

Bath Rat Control After Rat Burrows Through Carpet - BA2, Bath, 1st March 2021
Pestforce Pest Control Bath were contacted recently by a customer who literally had a rat come up through their carpet! The damage was found one morning and fortunately the rat hadn’t got far enough through to gain access into the main body of the house. After our Bath pest controllers concluded a substantial survey, a burrow was located in the garden where the rats had been able to access the utility inlet point and from there get into the voids under the house. We commenced our Bath rat control treatments and the problem was dealt with promptly.
