Welcome to Pestforce Colchester Pest Control

I am Andy Hoare and I serve Colchester, Manningtree, Tiptree, Burnham on Crouch and all surrounding areas with affordable pest control solutions for your home, business, garden and agricultural premise…

Some people call me after much hesitation and unsuccessful attempts to deal with a pest problem themselves. I am you local qualified pest control operative for Colchester and surrounding areas and am on your doorstep with immediate help.

Don’t hesitate – call the professional

As a qualified and experienced pest control technician, I can quickly deal with any pest issue – no matter what it is or where it is. I am so confident I can deal with any pest problem that I guarantee success – if I fail, you don’t pay!

As well as holding the industry standard Level 2 qualification in ‘Pest Control & Management’ awarded by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), I have also complete several additional specialist training courses. I use humane methods to eradicate and control vermin such as:

Moles – moles and their hills can be a significant nuisance for farms, stables, horse riding establishments, golf courses and many other recreational settings. I am a specialist molecatcher.

Wasps – these flying insects can choose to locate their nests in the most awkward of places! Although their life cycle in short, lasting from spring to autumn, their sting can present significant problems to humans and pets; more so if you are allergic to their venom. With wasp population numbering thousands, it is always advisable to call the expert in to deal with it – 5,000 angry wasps can cause you serious problems.

Birds, Seagulls & Pigeons – nesting and roosting birds can present huge problems, particularly to the fabric of a building. Bird droppings have a caustic affect on roofs and ledges; rather than spending money on repairs, why not invest the money in bird proofing your home or business premises? Having completed specialist courses, I can use a range of methods and equipment to humanely prevent birds landing, roosting and nesting on your building.

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

Bee removal & control

Bugs, moths, ants, wasps, insects, flies, carpet beetle & spiders

Rat and mice control and removal

Fleas & bedbug treatments

Rabbits, foxes, moles and more.

I am a part time gamekeeper too and have worked with many business customers in a variety of outdoor settings.

I can help YOU!

I work with domestic customers, in and outside the home whether you are a homeowner or tenant. Pests need dealing with quickly as they can soon cause not only structural damage to the home but present serious dangers to human health. No matter what the pest, I can deal with it quickly and effectively.

Do not be embarrassed to call as many pests, like humans, prefer to nest and breed in places that are clean, weather proof and warm – and our homes offer them their perfect habitat!

Business customers can either call me for ‘one-off’ assignments or I can service annual contracts, which for some businesses can be a more cost-effective solution;

·       Schools, colleges, nurseries, primary schools etc. need a swift response as well as guarantees that the methods used are safe for use in and around the building.

·       Parish council premises and other buildings, ranging from churches, graveyards, cemeteries through to recreation areas and local parks are some business customers who do benefit from annual contracts.

·       Various sporting complexes including football pitches, rugby grounds, golf courses etc.- moles can be problems for sporting and recreational customers. I offer a bespoke mole catching service in which moles are NOT killed, but relocated to their natural habitat (woodland)

·       Food outlets such as restaurants, pubs, take away outlets etc can face issues with rats and mice, particular around waste disposal areas. Again, this takes a longer-term approach of eradication and control. Clearly, the response for food outlets needs to be swift but low-key.

·       Accommodation providers including private landlords, housing associations, letting agencies and estate agents frequently call on my services to perform pest control ‘cleans’ in between tenants.

·       Agricultural and other animal-based businesses from local farms, through to kennels, catteries, riding centres, liveries, allotments and woodland areas

·       Industrial units such as factories, storage facilities, offices etc. can also face pest control issues from time-to-time and again, a swift, responsive service is required.

·       ... and many other customers such as caravan parks, mobile home parks, playgrounds, stately homes, garden centres, country parks, building sites and more!

Gina Bailey

Andy Hoare and Pestforce were recommend by a friends. Andy was quick in replying to my message and very helpful with sorting out a time that suit me. Andy arrived 10 mins early and we so polite and helpful. I would recommend him to friend and family if they need this kind of service.
Thank you Andy for a great service of getting rid of the wasp nest and the help with sorting out the bird getting into the house. Many thanks


Karen Potter

Excellent service, quick and efficient. It turned out I had two wasp nests and Andy was only too happy to come back immediately to remove the second! Would recommend.



Andy has helped us out several times in recent years, mainly with wasps, he is always quick to respond, totally reliable and very good at what he does, we would definitely recommend his services!


Nick, Suffolk.

Excellent service from Andy. He arrived on time and was speedy and efficient. It is still early days but so far, no further problems, so the treatment was successful.



Would highly recommend this company, I got a booking date so quickly which I was impressed with. The guy took the time to find the bee nest even though I thought they had gone, they hadn’t and he sorted it quickly. Definitely would use them again if I had the same problem.



Excellent service, would definitely use again! Highly recommend


Sarah Warren

Arrived on time was knowledgeable about the problem and dealt with it effectively


John symonds

Andy was very responsive - was able to come witin 48 hours. And the wasps have stopped buzzing above our heads!



Very Efficient service. Prompt communications. Would recommend.


Laura Dowsett

Very good service thoroughly satisfied and will be happy to recommend Pestforce to anyone.


Cliff Gregory

We had four wasps nests at our barn this June and Andrew Hoare was efficient, fast and friendly in destroying them. His knowledge of all things pest related is excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who finds themselves with a pest problem.


M Reeves

Andy has treated two wasps nests in different parts of our property over the past two years. He has also fitted pigeon spikes and gel pots under our eaves to stop them messing our new windows and windowsills. All treatments have been successful and were dealt with promptly and professionally. Great job.


Karen Lazell

Great service, Found a bees nest Andy came round within a few hours of my call and solved the problem for me


S Ryan

I rang Andy in Colchester as I had a problem with some bumble bees. Within a few hours he had called and dealt the nest. Great service, thanks for being so prompt.


S Walker

Andy responded swiftly to our request and every time he visited he was knowledgable, professional and easy to deal with. Every time he visited he was punctual, courteous and happy to answer any questions, with the reports and follow up emails arriving very quickly. He was also quick to recommend we needed no further treatment. Overall, a great service by Andy and Pestforce.



Thank you Andy for a quick and professional job. As a person who suffers from a rat phobia I was relieved by his reassurances and detailed explanations of how he would deal with the problem generated in my neighbour's garden by rabbit hutches on the ground. He attended twice and each time arrived in advance of the appointed time. I was able to return to my garden after his second visit. He was happy to look at surrounding gardens to assess their vulnerability too. I felt he was very pleasant and understanding and should the need ever arise again he would certainly be my first port of call.

Ben Olma

Great service thanks Andy. Had a potential problem with rats which was sorted out very efficiently and effectively. Bait boxes were left around and then inspected a couple of weeks later to determine where they had been active. Confident we won't be bothered by them now. Everything was explained well and Andy also had the time to listen and give advice regarding a couple of other potential pest issues. Would highly recommend.



Friendly knowledgable guy Andy is.
Explained the process and probable cause of our issue.
Did the job no hassle and the rats have not returned.


Andy Murphy.

I would highly recommend Pestforce as they provide a reliable and successful service. Last year we had two large wasps nest that were successfully treated and over the last week they managed to catch a couple of squirrels who had taken up residence in our loft.


Mrs Scanlan

Thank you for being so helpful. You were always spot on with your timing and you have a very pleasant manner and are a joy to speak with and deal with. Keep your fingers crossed you have now stopped my squirrels completely.


Mervyn Baker

From the moment Andrew knocked on our door, he was very professional throughout his two visits to us. He kept us fully informed, explaining exactly what he was doing and why. Also his timekeeping was excellent. We will definitely be using his services again when we have pests to control.


Mr Stephen Hall

Professional and friendly work without fuss. Arrived on time and did a very competent job. No problems


Peter Cork

Andrew couldn't have been any more helpful if he'd tried! He timed his visits to fit in with my schedule , and was very professional yet friendly and reassuring at the same time. I would not hesitate to use him again should the need arise.



Sarah Levy

 I would like to thank you Andy for providing an excellent service. You were very sensitive to my elderly mother’s needs and you have been completely reliable and have kept me informed throughout. I consider your charges to be very reasonable and I will be happy to recommend your Pestforce Essex services to others.


Thanks and best wishes,
