Welcome to Pestforce Pest Control Clacton on Sea.

I am Andy Hoare and I offer affordable pest control services across to Clacton-on-Sea, Harwich, Frinton on Sea, Brightlingsea and all surrounding areas.

I provide a professional and effective pest control service to all types of customers.

Why do pest control issues and problems occur?

There are a number of reasons why numbers of insects, rodents and animals can sometimes spiral out of control: 

Built environment

As humans, we expand our living areas at a fast pace but this can impact on the insects, rodents and animals in their natural habitat. Moles, for example, live in woodland and wooded areas but, with buildings sometimes ‘cutting off’ moles from their natural areas, meaning that they make their homes in areas that are inconvenient to us – like our bowling green, playing fields, football pitches and other recreational areas. I am also a part time gamekeeper; hence I complete a large amount of work in farming and countryside settings.

Climate and weather patterns

When we experience strange weather patterns, it can impact on the numbers of insects in our eco-system, especially when the weather favours a particular insect and their breeding pattern. Wasps enjoy temperate weather and climate, so the strange weather patterns we have sometimes experienced in previous years means that we see a lot of nests, with large colonies. Wasps can be a nuisance as well as a danger to some people’s health – wasp stings can cause a reaction called anaphylaxis in which the body enters a state of shock, causing major organs to shut down. Either way, a wasp sting can be painful and not welcome. Wasps do have a finite life cycle, coming to life in spring and dying off in autumn, leaving the mated queen to hibernate through winter, beginning the whole cycle again the following spring. If the nest is out of reach and far away from people, children and pets, technically they can be left alone. However, if the nest is in a place that means it becomes a nuisance, do not try and deal with it yourself. As a qualified pest controller with a level 2 certificate in ‘Pest Control & Management’, I can use professional-grade chemicals to deal with the wasp nest.

Modern living

The way we live also changes over time and so some habits and lifestyle choices favour some pests. Rats and mice, for example, look for similar conditions in which to build their nests as we do – draught-free, weather –proof, warm and with a plentiful supply of food. Our food rubbish, composts and recycling areas provide perfect nesting material and food for rodents. Many business customers such as food outlets find that they can experience issues with uncontrolled numbers of rats and mice on occasions. It is difficult to eradicate completely the rat and so many commercial customers prefer to have a pest controller like me to service an annual, long term contract. Birds, Pigeons & Seagulls can also become an issue, especially as their droppings can cause expensive damage to a building, many companies now recognise that rather than spend hundreds and thousands of pounds repairing damage, that investing in various bird proofing techniques is a better financial option. Having completed specialists bird proofing techniques courses, I am your local pest controller for the job.

I can tackle any pest problem from squirrels to woodworm, as well as:

  • Moths, flies, ants, wasps, bees, bugs, insects, spiders, carpet beetle
  • Rat and mice control
