About PestForce in Cardiff, Pontypridd, Barry, Merthyr and Newport

I am Werner Starbuck and I am the owner of Pestforce Cardiff - a pest control company based in Pontypridd, providing great service to customers looking for Pest control in the local area of Pontypridd, Merthyr, Aberdare, Cardiff, Barry and Newport.

I am a trained and qualified pest controller originating from South Africa. I feel priveleged to have set up the business in the area which allows me to support my family and deliver my services to the local community. I enjoy working with my customers - customer care and attention is very close to my heart (see my testimonials) but my children are my true inspiration.

My company provides a 24 hour emergency (we do get some sleep) and non-emergency service to the people of Cardiff and the surrounding areas. We work under the national brand of Pestforce so you can be assured of quality and high standards.

We are the best of both worlds - we are a local business with national standards. So if you call Pestforce Pest Control in Cardiff for any pest probelm including wasps, fleas, rats or mice, you will only ever speak to a local person, usually me, Werner, the local owner of Pest force Cardiff. We feel that this local aspect to our business means you will get a better service than using one of the large, national, companies because not only do we know the area but they are familiar with the Pest problems that you may experience locally.

I also like helping others and at Pestforce Cardiff we build relationships with our local community and we are delighted to be supporting the Safe Foundation, locally based Cardiff charity supporting people Not in Employment, Education or Training. See more below.

Agricultural Pest Control

Actively managing agricultural land and property can be a huge challenge without worrying about pests. Fortunately at Pestforce Cardiff we know and understand the additional challenges of pests in a farming environment. Insects, rodents, moles and the like, are all pests that can have seriously harmful effects to agricultural land and property.

Our fully trained technicians and effective control measures you can be certain that your pest concerns are dealt with.

Rodent are common around farm buildings as they provide warmth, shelter and food. Rodents can breed at a significant rate and it is important to avoid an infestation. Complete riddance can be difficult but significant control and monitoring is important to avoid the health risks associated to rats and mice.

Moles are another significant nuisance and can be a risk to live stock – both in terms of damage from tunnelling and spread of bacteria.

Insect control is important when it comes to crops and storage. Again we can help call on 02921 900217

Local Community

We believe in building a business with a wider purpose - helping our customers with pest control issues is key - but we enjoy helping build a great sense of purpose in the local community of South Wales.

We are proud to work with and support the Safe Foundation as I believe in what they do for young and vulnerable people. Click the link above to find out more or read on for a short summary.  Safe Foundation in Cardiff

The SAFE Foundation are a Cardiff based charity working with small communities who are living on the fringes of society. We run projects primarily around education, health, skills and sustainability to increase opportunity and reduce poverty within these communities.

Our work takes place in Wales and South West England with young people aged between 16-24 who are not active in their communities and who are either Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) or who are at risk of becoming NEET. We also work internationally.

Our NEET volunteers begin their journey by engaging in a comprehensive Global Education course which looks at things like Responsible Consumerism, Judgements and Stigmas, Cultural Sensitivity and using the media responsibly.

While they are doing this we also look at literacy and numeracy, building confidence and identifying skills so that they can find educational and work opportunities. Our aim is to create young people who think critically but positively about themselves and their world. 

The results and outcomes we are see are remarkable. We have a proven track record in our volunteer engagement and our current retention rate is 78% and our NEET volunteers have gone on to set up their own business’, find education opportunities, work in the voluntary sector, and even become trustees of charities - something that would have been unimaginable before.

TO SUPPORT this cause further I am pledging a minimum 1% of my net earning to the SAFE FOUNDATION. Therefore if you use my services you will be helping young and vulnerable people in South Wales and areas of poverty internationally.

Recent Jobs

We met Sue by chance when there was a big rodent infestation in the shop next door to hers....  

We originally started a treatment at another shop further along the row and in our investigation, we asked a number of businesses if they had any recent rodent activity.  Sue was so happy to see us and informed us that she indeed had a problem.  It was only a recent discovery and we quickly started finding evidence of mice.  As Sue was worried that having a pest controller in the shop might alert her customers, we ensured that we were always discrete when we entered the shop.  In fact we made such an effort that we did not park anywhere close to the shop and we always came in through the back door.  We treated the shop with great success and sue is now free from Mice and none of her customers even know we were there.  Another success tale for Pestforce Cardiff.

Mouse in the house....

Mrs R had a mouse infestation and her son called us to attend the property.  We found a lot of evidence everywhere in the house and Mrs R was so helpful, she could even give us the exact dates when she saw her little friends.  In only three visits we managed to resolve the problem.  Mrs R was delighted that we established a good result in the time frame and that she was now free from mice.  

From Pest Control to Snow Patrol....

The 'Beast form the East' finally hit us and no matter how much we prepared, there were always going to be some issues.  In the days preceding the anticipated storm, Pestforce Cardiff had some calls to deal with pests.  We had a range of cases  and all our clients were happy with our service and fast response time.  The MET Office encouraged people to stay of the roads unless absolutely necessary, but we are privileged to have our own 4 x 4 and were still able to see our clients on Thursday.  As the storm hit hard on Thursday night, the next morning brought a whole new range of challenges.  Due to the poor conditions, we had to contact all our clients to rearrange their appointments for that day and they were all extremely understanding.  We were also snowed in with a four foot drift blocking our way to get out on the road.  

With super fast thinking and a quick message on social media, a local farmer came to clear a path for us and we were able to get back on the roads.  Posting a message of our own on Facebook, we offered to help and support nurses, doctors and other emergency service staff to find a way to work during the storm.  It did not take long before the first call came in and we were asked to collect three nurses from a local hospital and help them to get back to their homes.  They have not seen their families in three days and were desperate to be reunited.  Soon after another call came in; this time it was to collect three more nurses from their homes and take them to the same hospital for their shift.  The day continued on in this trend and seven hours later we managed to transport 11 nurses in total between their homes and the hospital.  

By 9pm we made the last trip and were able to return home.  The drive from Cardiff was slow and we continued to be careful on the roads.  With less than a mile to go, we found ourselves facing an eight foot snow drift and had to turn around and take a different route.  Forty five minutes later we were in sight of the house, only to find a vehicle with three passengers who had been stuck in the snow for five hours.  In windy and freezing conditions, we were hands on deck once more to help the stranded people as best we can, but the snow and lack of grip left us facing a long night trying to get them out.  We drafted in extra helpers, but the car simply would not give in to moving.  By 11pm we had to make a decision.  Either be there the whole night or make another phone call to one of the local farmers.  We decided on the latter and as Lady Luck would have it, he was only minutes away from us.  20 minutes later the three passengers were on their way home and we could go and have a hot drink, some sleep and get ourselves ready for the next day ahead.  

As conditions improved the next day, we had fewer calls, but we still made some trips to the hospital.  Everyone we transported kindly made cash contributions for our efforts and it is our decision that we will donate every penny to our affiliated charity, Age Connects Morgannwg.  Most of the nurses we helped out work in the dementia ward at the hospital and Age Connects Morgannwg is a charity for the elderly, some of whom suffer with the condition.  

It is in times like this that I realise how invaluable a strong community support network is.  I also realised how much we rely on social media to get our messages out to the world.  Both are so powerful and I now know that in this day and age, one is almost impossible to exist without the other.  As a local business in and around Cardiff, we made use of one to support the other.  We were called upon and we delivered; that is the Pestforce Cardiff way!

Mouse Control in Cardiff saves a childrens party

Pending children’s party was potentially spoilt by a mouse. Mrs W. called me with a problem. Her son had his second birthday party coming up and she discovered that there was a mouse infestation. Worried that she may have to cancel, she called Pestforce Cardiff. We responded very quickly and on the same afternoon we were there to help. With only a few days to go before the big event, we managed to resolve the problem for the young two year old and his party went ahead as planned. We were extremely pleased with the result.”

Rodents in Cardiff Dining out on food in cupboard

Matthew called Pestforce Cardiff with a rodent problem. When we arrived it was clear that the little critters have been enjoying themselves in the food cupboards. We used a tried and tested method to track where the activity originated from and managed the stop them in their tracks. After three visits we were able to sign the work off and Matthew and his dog are no rodent free again.”

Bird control for Solar Panels

Paul phoned Pestforce Cardiff with a problem with birds. Pigeons had taken roost under his solar panels and caused him a lot of distress. When we inspected the roof we were able to provide Paul with a competitive quote for the work. Two weeks later we managed to battle the elements and complete the work to a high and professional standard. No more pigeons and Paul and his wife are taking a long holiday, knowing that there property is free from birds.”

Poor Caerphilly Bird control was causing a loss of revenue - resolved by Pestforce Cardiff

A local company community centre in Caerphilly had a major problem with Pigeons. Pestforce Cardiff were called and asked to survey and provide recommendations on how to resolve the problem. The birds caused that much of a problem that the Centre could not use two of the rooms to present evening classes, resulting in a loss of revenue for the local community. It took Pestforce Cardiff nearly a whole day to treat, remove and proof the affected areas and now the rooms are ready to be used again. Susan was so pleased with result and said she could not remember the last time she saw the rooms in such a good condition. We were very pleased to be able to help a local community centre in our local area.”

Granddaughter can play outside again

Mrs E had a severe rat infestation.  After the initial treatment, it was discovered that the problem needed more attention.  Persistence and perseverance finally paid off and Mrs E can now rest easy.  Her granddaughter can now also play outside in the garden again.

Wasp nest in Cardiff the size of 3 footballs

Danny called me with a wasp problem.  When I turned up, I was in awe to see the size of the nest.  It was easily as big as 3 footballs.  Following some nifty investigation, it was discovered that the wasps had several entrances.  After treating every entrance, the wasp activity stopped and is now resolved.

Pigeons under solar panels - bird control solution required

Mr R called me to come and investigate a pigeon problem he has on the roof.  The birds are nesting under his solar panels and on top of the chimney.  I quickly managed to get a quote out to Mr R to resolve his pest and the work is due to commence when he returns from his holiday.

Flea control in Cardiff retail outlet

A well-respected jewelry shop in Cardiff had a flea problem.  They needed it to be resolved quickly as it could have caused more problems for their customers.  Within 24 hours the shop was treated and the staff were impressed with the effectiveness and lack of smell after the treatment.  They now have their shop back to normal without any damage to the brand name.

Long term rodent control in Cardiff

Mrs L has been struggling with rats for more than two years.  It was treated before, but they came back.  Upon inspection, it became clear that the issue was only resolved temporarily.  The treatment is ongoing.

Mole control to save the day

Simon and Michelle are struggling with moles in their back garden and they cannot start the building work for their new conservatory.  They called me and I visited them to inspect the problem.  There was a lot of activity and after some discussion, the treatment was started.  During the first visit, everything was set up and ready to catch moles.  The second visit had showed no success, but this soon changed during the third, when one mole was caught.  The treatment is on going and soon Simon and Michelle will be able to enjoy their new conservatory.  

Wasps in a Cardiff loft

Phillip called me with a wasp problem in the loft.  After inspection and careful planning the nest was treated.  A week later the nest was completely removed and Phillip and his family can now enjoy a wasp free home.

Mouse Problem in Cardiff – SOLVED

Received a call from John who was very concerned about a potential mouse infestation. We chatted through what was going and I managed to find a slot in my diary to visit the next day – I always like to get onto the problem straight away. I was there the next day and evidence of mice was clear. Managed to put the customer at ease and with 3 visits the problem was resolved.

It is not unusual to get a mouse problem – they entered a property for warmth, shelter and food. And they can get into your house through a hole as small as a pencil. If you can put a pencil in a hole then it will allow a mouse to get through. Mice are able to flex their skeleton to squeeze through very small holes!!! If you see a small hole in your property simply fill it to stop a problem in the first place.

Welsh Woodworm - ADVICE

I really get a sense of pleasure from helping my local community in Cardiff. One lady contacted me recently with a concern regarding a wood worm problem in their new home. I was able to pass by the next day and give some honest professional advice. With my advice they are now considering the next course of action for the treatment to be done.

A never Ending problem with Rats – Work in Progress

Received an interesting call from a customer the other day who said they had a rat problem and it had been going on for the last 18 months. Now that is simply not acceptable and while some rat infestations can be difficult to resolve 100% you should be able to get a problem under control if you can find the source of the problem. I’ve now done by first survey and assessment and it is going to be an interesting project. I’ll keep you posted on progress…
