Chester Rat Control
Rats are known to be vectors of diseases, so people climb on higher grounds when they spot one. Our Chester rat control measures are successful because we understand the different types of rats, why they are a nuisance, and how to get rid of them.
These rodents are common in homes, offices, and most buildings. We even see some crossing the roads. Because of their adaptive nature, our rat control techniques lure rats from their hiding place so that none is left behind in the killing spree. You will not have to worry about a loose rat after we're done because we are that good.
Rats are cautious creatures; that's why it might take you a while to be aware of their existence. So, once you see one or hear one on your roof (a roof rat), it’s likely they are more than one and need immediate extermination. We ensure to leave your home rat-free so you can have a peaceful mind and continue with your life as if the rats never happened.
If you're experiencing a rat problem in Chester, it's time to ring us on 01244 917 960 for rat control services.
Chester Mice Control
Understandably, you might not know the difference between mice and rats. Most of us didn't either at first. That's why our Chester mice control services are your best way out of a mice infestation.
Unlike rats, most people can stand the sight of mice because they're undeniably adorable. It is also why a mice pet is a thing. However, unwelcomed mice can be an issue. Usually, a female mouse can breed up to 10 litters of about five babies. Now imagine if the babies grew up and reproduced in the same year. Your home would be a disastrous breeding ground, and you wouldn't want that.
If you think you’re having a mice problem, from mysterious cereals missing or eaten plants or if you’ve seen one, call us on 01244 917 960 for our mice control services at Chester.
Wasp Nest Removal in Chester
Our Chester wasp control measures are safe to remove wasp nests without intimidating them too much. Because of their painful sting, you should not disturb them by flying them out of the house. Much like bees, wasps are expected during the summer. They set up nests in high places like the corners of your roof. Also, they're notorious for inhabiting practically any space, so don't be shocked to find them invading your bathroom and bedroom spaces.
Home-made wasp repellants can only do so much to rid them off, mostly if the wasps have already built a nest. At this point, it would be best to call Chester pest control to do what we do best.
Around the summer, our wasp nest removal services at Chester are most common. We can confidently say that our wasp control experts are experienced enough to handle any nest size. You, too, need to be confident in our expertise to call us.
If the wasps in your house are unruly, don't be shy. Whatever the wasp nest's size, our Chester wasp control experts will take care of it. Just call 01244 917 960 now.
Chester Bee Control
Our Chester bee control experts understand the importance of bees. Hence, we try as much as possible to treat a bee infestation and rehome them.
Bees are beautiful creatures and help protect our plants, especially during the spring and summer. They can also be one heck of a sight to spot. However, if you spot a significantly large number of bees at one point, it should be worrisome. More so if there are no known beekeepers nearby.A swarm of bees could indicate that there's a nearby nest and, if unattended to, could be dangerous to passersby. It is undoubtedly something to report immediately to us at our Chester pest control office before the swarms get out of pocket.
We preserve the bee's nest by carefully rehoming it somewhere safe where it wouldn't pose a danger to people and people wouldn't disturb it. Rodent control personnel rehome bees' nests to prevent untrained people from harvesting the honey.
Our best advice for you is not to get near a bee's nest for any reason. Like you wouldn't want to catch a bee in your garden, avoid a nest to be safe.
If you need our bee control and bee nest removal services at Chester, then pick up your phone and dial 01244 917 960.
Chester Squirrel Control
We have two types of squirrels in the UK, the red squirrel and the grey squirrel. Our Chester squirrel control services seek to protect the red squirrel and exterminate the grey squirrels.
Because the red squirrel is a protected breed, our professionals will offer you advice on safely keeping them out of your house. Also, we will not use any methods or chemicals to harm these pests, and neither should you.
On the flip side, the grey squirrel is unprotected. Therefore, we follow our extermination protocol depending on the removal approach we deem best. At Pestforce, we have several options on how to remove grey squirrels, so you shouldn't worry about them being a nuisance for long.

Wasp party in Chester - August 2023
Today in Chester CH2 we have been out to a wasp job the second time. The house was being rebuilt from the ground up bit by bit after being vacant for 20 years. The first time the digger crew who was clearing a way to get through the house through what seemed like a 3 meter high jungle disturbed a large wasp nest and got swarmed. Today they had me back out as they had finally made it through to demolishing the top floor and found a further 2 wasp nests in the wall. We came out within the same hour as the call and were able to treat and destroy both so that work could resume.

Safe and Effective use of rodenticide - 5th December 2021
This week Pestforce Chester has been out dealing with a previous customer in CH3. Last time we were out catching rats using traps and rodenticide but this time the problem was a mole infestation. The customers lawn was being absolutely destroyed by the moles so it needed an urgent mole treatment. The most appropriate course of action was to use mole traps. We did this by using a long metal rod to find the tunnels they create around the mole hills and work out where they are going. Usually when you have a mole problem all the damage is only being caused by one mole. But this time was unusual as we have already caught and removed 4 moles from a very small walled garden. Fortunately the mole activity seems to have subsided with treatment but we will continue to monitor the traps to confirm this. We have also been busy with rat treatments and mice treatments this week as we are in peak rodent season. Do you have any Pest control needs that needs treatment? Then call Pestforce Chester today for all of your pest control needs.

Rodent season in full swing in Chester - 15th November 2021

In this case we covered both bases by putting 2 secure rat boxes in the yard area for a rat treatment containing rodenticide. We then put rodenticide into the cavity directly and secured it in place. To cover both rats and squirrels we put trap boxes secured to the roof containing traps that will attract and dispatch both rats and squirrels. The treatment is ongoing and the work is being done in conjunction with a roofer who will be replacing the damaged facia boards.

Responsible bee relocation in Chester - 28th May 2021
This week in Chester CH1 Pestforce Chester has been a very busy bee removing bees nests. We went out to inspect 2 building sites that were having problems with bumble bees. Now usually bumble bees are completely harmless creatures who are master pollinators. However in the first instance they had built a nest into the side of an excavation trench, when any of the workmen went in they got stung for digging in the ground around them. The builders wanted to build their wall in peace without being stung and the bees needed moving on so they took us on for our bee removal service on a same day emergency call out pest control. We successfully dug out the large nest from inside the excavation and drove them to some nearby woodland where they could get on with their season undisturbed. On a similar note we went to a bees nest in the wall of a newbuild. The doors had not been put on yet so the bees had moved straight into the cosy insulation in the cavity wall preventing the builders from putting on the door frames without being stung. But unfortunately for the bumble bees they had to endure our bee nest relocation service. We took the bees to a coppice next to an allotment a few miles away so they could continue their good work and so could the builders!

Bumble bee safe removal - 12th May 2021
Pestforce Chester went out to a lovely customer this week who had some bumble bees in and old rabbit hutch inside an old cushioned bed. The hutch was to heavy to be moved without being dismantled and the nest was to close to the back door and patio area where her grandchildren played so it needed moving. Of course bees are massive part of any healthy garden so at Pestforce we only kill them as a last resort. Happily in this case we were able to move the bumble bees to the end of the garden behind the shed. We were able to move the whole rabbit bed without disturbing the nest inside. We then put a wooden crate and a few pieces of old slate on the top so the bees nest could continue to flourish and pollinate the garden undisturbed nice and cosy.

We are not Chester Bee keepers but we are your local responsible Pest Control Technician and we will never kill bees unless there is no other option.

Bee relocation in the Chester - 29th April 2021
Pestforce Chester were recently called to a bee problem CH4. The customer reported bees burrowing in a spot along the fencing. This was a problem as the customer was about to have turf laid and the landscapers didn’t want to get stung. We attended on a same day emergency call out to assess the problem. On closer inspection there was no be hive or wasp nest. They were actually a species of miner bee which are solitary and quite docile. They do however tend to burrow little earth tunnels in the same spot to give the appearance of a hive. The males patrol the outskirts of these little dirt piles looking to mate and do not have a sting. The bees usually dig in dry sandy soil so I simply wetted the area and they moved on which allowed the landscapers to lay the turf without entombing the harmless bees. Its always nice to be able to relocate bees when safe and possible to do so. Do you have a bees or wasps that need an effective professional wasp nest treatment in Chester? Then call ollie at Pestforce for your pest control needs and we can come out on our same day emergency call out.
Mole control near the River Dee, Chester - 23rd April 2021
This week Pestforce Chester attended an absolutely stunning address on the banks of the river Dee. It was a pleasure to work in todays sunshine in the garden addressing a mole issue that the customer has in his lawn. Although moles can be a sign of a healthy garden their mole hills are unsightly and make the grass impossible to mow and can damage equipment so it is best to deal with them quickly. They can leave ridged tunnels all over a lawn. They are not necessarily harmful, but can ruin your nice landscaping or yard. We do this by using a “dibber” to find the tunnels they use between mounds which they use to look for food. Then we dig out a little hole along the tunnel and place a small humane trap to dispatch them quickly and efficiently. If you have a mole problem in CH2 then please get in contact with Pestforce Chester today for a mole catcher that is both affordable, reliable and courteous.
