Chelmsford Rat Control
For many, the sight of a rat can be terrifying, especially when it is scurrying through your property.
As a homeowner, you worry whether it will harm your family. And, as a business, you fear it will put off customers and hurt your reputation.
However, rats aren’t just unpleasant bedfellows: they are also potential harbingers of disease.
Therefore I believe in dealing with rat control problems in Chelmsford as quickly as possible - ideally before they have a chance to cause serious harm to your property and health.
Fortunately, our team in Chelmsford has the necessary experience, training and knowledge to deal with rat infestations rapidly.
After you call us, we send technicians to your site to assess the extent of the issues and how to best deal with it. We then check where the rats are entering your home and how we can prevent them from getting back inside in the future.
Chelmsford Mice Control
Mice, like rats, are an unwanted sight in your home.
Though they are not as big or dangerous as their rodent cousins, they too can harbour nasty infectious diseases that could make you, your customers or your family sick.
So eliminating them from your property is a top priority for both you and our team. Our mice control operatives in Chelmsford arrive at your location and immediately begin scanning the area for evidence of the presence of mice.
They then work to identify any and all possible entry points into your home that the mice might be exploiting.
We then eliminate the mice and take action to ensure that they cannot return. This way, we help to prevent problems from recurring in the future.
Chelmsford Wasp Nest Removal

Wasps are hardy creatures that will create their nests in any location they believe offers them a survival advantage.
Because of this, our wasp removal in Chelmsford is one of our most popular services. We use specialist tools that allow us to deal with practically every kind of wasps nest in every location you can imagine.

Chelmsford Squirrel Control
Are you having trouble with squirrels in Chelmsford? If so, then please don’t hesitate to call us.
While squirrels are often welcome additions to your garden, sometimes they can cause problems that require control.
In the UK, red squirrels are a protected species, so any control you implement must be strategic and indirect. I can provide you with advice for this.
However, grey squirrels are not native to the British Isles and, therefore, don’t have the same level of protection as their native brethren. Thus, the degree of control options available to you are much larger.
Chelmsford Bird Control and Pigeon Proofing
The UK is home to a vast array of birds and pigeons. And they are also a common sight in Chelmsford - as they are in many other parts of the country.
While having birds on your property is often a bonus, then can sometimes create problems, such as building nests in your loft spaces or guttering, damaging your building.
Furthermore, their droppings can create excessive mess that damages your property’s exterior and creates an unsightly mess.
Some birds are protected in Chelmsford and, therefore, we cannot remove them. However, many species, including pigeons, are not protected.

The Bedbug Challenge

Some common problems associated with bedbug infestations include:
- Bites and Allergic Reactions: Bedbug bites can lead to itchy welts and allergic reactions, affecting your well-being.
- Sleep Disruption: Bedbugs are most active at night, causing sleep disturbances and anxiety for those affected.
- Rapid Reproduction: A single pair of bedbugs can multiply into hundreds in a matter of weeks, leading to a widespread infestation.
- Property Damage: Bedbugs can infest furniture, mattresses, and other belongings, necessitating costly replacements.

At Pestforce Chelmsford, we take a comprehensive approach to bedbug control, ensuring complete eradication and peace of mind for our clients.

- Follow-Up Inspections: After the initial treatment, we can schedule follow-up inspections to verify the effectiveness of our services. If needed, we perform additional treatments to eliminate any remaining bedbugs.
- Preventive Measures: To prevent future infestations, we provide guidance on preventive measures you can take, such as sealing cracks and regularly inspecting your property.

Chelmsford Flea Control
Fleas are a surprisingly common problem in Chelmsford and other areas across the UK. These tiny insects tend to congregate in large numbers in homes with pets, but they are commonly found in properties without either cats or dogs.
Fleas are problematic because of the health and skin problems they can create. Furthermore, because they are so small, winning the battle against them personally can be a challenge.
