Welcome to Pestforce Pest Control Colchester.
My name is Andy Hoare and I serve Colchester, Manningtree, Tiptree, Burnham on Crouch and all surrounding areas.
I proudly offer effective and affordable pest control solutions for your home, business, garden or agricultural premise.
I am you local qualified pest controller in Colchester - Don’t hesitate – call a professional today!
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 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!
