About me

I come from a farming background and have seen, first hand, the devastation an uncontrolled pest can cause to buildings, land and crops. At the same time, I also have a respect for wildlife and nature as well as a passion for the outdoor life.

Living and working locally means that not only can I offer a quick response, but I also know the area very well. I currently cover over 15,000 acres of farmland and believe I have a proven effectiveness in dealing with both country and urban pests.

Qualified, skilled and trusted

I hold the pest control industry standard qualification, a level 2 certification in ‘Pest Control & Management’. This qualification is awarded by the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) and is no lightweight course. The pass mark is set very high, and all three modules must be completed within 12 months of starting the course. It includes detailed work on vertebrates, invertebrates as well as the safe use, storage and transportation of chemicals.

We are a organisation that keeps pest control technicians up to date with current good practice, legislation and other essential information. We use a mix of modern and traditional methods including the use of aluminium sulphate gas. 

BPCA Pest control in Derby

Wildlife and its preservation for future generations is a passion of mine, hence I hold a ‘Wildlife Management Certificate’. This specialist qualification allows me to practice and excel in maintain the balance within woodlands and other countryside settings of the ecological balance. IN other words, I can maintain control on the population numbers of wood and feral pigeons, foxes, rabbits, moles, magpies and crows.

We hold a full ‘firearm and shotgun’ certificates.

We aRE also an accredited member of the British Traditional Molecatchers Register (BTMR), a body that promotes the traditional and humane methods of trapping and relocating moles.

We are also a member of the Derbyshire Trusted Traders meaning I have passed the stringent vetting procedures of Trading Standards and Derbyshire County Council, meaning you can buy my services with confidence.

Which pests and what is Pest control?

There are a huge number of pests from the pesky insects to larger animals. They only cause us problems when their numbers spiral out of control and they look to our gardens, land and properties to make their home, as well as seeking sources of food.

I deal with all pests – no matter how large or small – but one pest I am called to deal with on a regular basis is the mole.

Moles are seen as shy animals, when in fact they remain in their tunnels due to poor eyesight rather than shyness. Their near-blindness makes them easy prey for hunters during the day and even when they do venture out at night, they can easily fall victim to a hungry owl.

They are also sociable animals to a certain extent, with communal corridors linking one moles tunnel to the next and to the outside world. They eat small insects including worms, which is why they are the foe of many a gardener. In fact, moles can be attracted to landscaped areas, especially is a large amount of organic matter is dug through the soil, making it very rich and fertile, and full of worms – every moles delight!

This is when moles can become a problem. Molehills are left behind as a result of them burrowing their tunnels and are a sorry sight for many a local gardener and grounds man.

There is only one effective treatment. That is the humane trapping and removal of the mole. The tunnels also need to be effectively sealed, as shortly after removal another mole will move in and the problem starts all over again.

Rabbits quickly damage gardens, flowers and trees as well as agricultural crops.We provide a competent service for the control and removal of rabbits.

Rodents (rats and mice) are a constant nuisance particularly during the colder months when they seek out warmth, shelter and food. This tends to bring them closer to our properties where they will exploit any gaps or holes to get into your property. Rats are kown to carry disease so any infestation is bad news. If you think you have a problem with rats and mice then let us know and we will come and investigate. Identitfyiing the problem is our first priority together with getting to the route cause. We will then provide a solution to counter act the problem which is likely to take a few weeks. Once solved we can then offer a deoderising or sanitising solution.

Rodent control around Decking area in local Debry Pub

Rodents are very good at getting into areas where they can find shelter, food and water. They look for openings in and around our properties as they know that they will find a food and water source, particularly around our gardens. The shelter is provided by any construction and they can get inside through the smallest of openings. They can also climb so there are few places they wont find. These video set out the work we did recently at a local pub.

Rodent control work in Bakewell, Derby 30/11/17

Today 30-11-2017 we are in Bakewell Derbyshire to resolve a ongoing rodent problem. The pictures below show a unused cupboard which ontained bird seed and dried grains that the owner had forgotten about. The mice have been feeding in this area for many months and the problem has spread thought out the property. We recommend to all our customers to keep all bird feed or any animal feed in a strong sealed container and if possible keep it in a shed or outbuilding away from your home. We also recommend the use of bird feeders to keep the bird feed off the floor.

Non Lethal Bird Control in Derby 2/12/2017

Pigeons can be a real pest and a customer requested a non lethal solution to the air conditioning plant on the roof of the Quad in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter in the centre of Derby. You can see from the pictures that the area is big and is a great location for birds (such as pigeons) to roost and breed. We provided the customer with a non lethal solution through the use of netting. These jobs are never easy but I must say we are proud of the finished solution. The Quad is now a bird free area - well, around the air conditioning units on the roof.
