Residential and Commercial Pest Control in Bishops Stortford
I have dealt with all types and sizes of pests, in a variety of situations – look at some of the types of customers we work with:
- Sporting venues and complexes can, on occasions suffer from extensive mole damage. I use traditional methods of trapping moles in areas such as bowling greens, other sporting venues, roundabouts, gardens etc. I am a specialist mole catcher for gardens, businesses and farms!
- Industrial buildings and office blocks can also suffer from nuisance birds. Birds such as pigeons can cause extensive damage to buildings and there are various techniques that can be used to stop this happening. Netting, spiking and other equipment is fixed to the roof and surrounding sills etc, preventing birds from landing, roosting and nesting. All this is humane and the birds are not harmed in anyway. I have advanced training and techniques for bird proofing and bird control.
- Letting agencies, estate agents and other accommodation providers, either on one-off pest control issues or through on-going contracts to treat properties for a variety of infestations. Insects come in all shapes and sizes, with two insects that I commonly come across are fleas and bedbugs.
- I have also worked with a variety of agricultural customers including local farmers, equestrian stables, livery yards, poultry units, animal sanctuaries etc. to help control a variety of pests.
- Other customers have included caravan parks, stately homes and gardens, schools, churches, student accommodation, care homes, nursing homes, day nurseries, garden centres, pubs, hotels, take away outlets, shops, supermarkets, garden centres, building sites, office blocks... and the list could go on!
I work with all domestic customers too, taking care of pest control issues in the home and outside the home too. Squirrels can be an issue for homeowners. Squirrels, being rodents, are very good at gaining access to loft space through air vents, pipes etc. and chew everything in sight! This of course, can present a substantial repair bill as well as presenting a fire hazard, should they decide to chew through wires etc. Rats and mice can be difficult to manage in and around such areas as there can be an abundant supply of food (in grain stores, cold storage etc.) and plenty of spaces to build a nest too. Again, these types of pest control issues can be one-off treatments or, possibly a better solution, is on-going contract work to keep numbers to a minimum.

Our team arrived to investigate and began with carrying out a full survey, during which both rat and squirrel droppings were discovered in the loft space. On further investigation, several potential points of entry were discovered, specifically around the fascia boards.

We look forward to making sure our customer is rodent free once again soon.
Hornets’ nest in loft space of a home in Bishops Stortford, CM22, 22nd August 2022
Pestforce Pest Control Bishop Stortford were called to treat a wasp’s nest at a home in Bishop Stortford. The clients had called and reported they were concerned following several sightings of wasps entering the roof space from under the roof tiles. Our team attended at the agreed time and conducted an inspection around the exterior of the roof, quickly identifying the culprit. Hornets were seen by our team. We set to work immediately using our knowledge and experience, applying insecticide dust to the tile area. This will eradicate the nest and hornets completely. We advised our clients to keep all windows closed until activity slows down, this could take a few hours.
Two wasps’ nests require treatment in Bishops Stortford, CM23, 31st July 2022
Pestforce Pest Control Bishops Stortford received a call from a gentleman who was becoming concerned with the increasing volume of wasps around the roof of his home in Bishops Stortford. We swiftly attended his home and completed an inspection. We noticed the wasps were entering and leaving from two areas of the tiled roof, we decided to look in the loft space of his home. Inside the loft space we identified two wasps’ nests, one at each end of the loft. Using our years of experience in treating wasps’ nests, we used an insecticide applied directly into the nest, eradicating the wasps inside, then we treated around the nest to eradicate the wasps surrounding the nest. This treatment proved to be another success with both wasps’ nests eradicated. Our client is much happier without the worry of the wasps living in his home.
Nuisance pigeons causing disturbance and mess in Bishops Stortford, CM23, 31st May 2022
Pestforce Pest Control Bishops Stortford were called to attend a property that was being fouled on by pigeons in Bishops Stortford. We arrived at the home and could see the pigeons landing on the gable ends of the property, guano was also evident on the wall below. We agreed the best course of action would be to install pigeon spiking. We began by thoroughly cleaning the area and the wall so there was no guano present. The pigeon spikes were then installed. Our client is now delighted to have no more pigeons causing mess on their property.
