What is a Pest?

A pest is often defined as ‘a plant or animal that is detrimental to humans or our concerns, such as crops and livestock’. Pests can also cause nuisance and carry disease. All animals, birds, rodents and insects can become a pest when they become invasive, detrimental, troublesome and destructive or a nuisance. Many people use the term pest alongside the term vermin.

In some cases, some of these animals can be beneficial – for example, as part of the food chain – but in other situations and settings, they can be a nuisance, therefore a pest.

The pests I have dealt with are many and varied but recent examples have included:

Rats – a massive problems in all areas, not just the Ealing. The way we live, the rubbish that is a welcome food source to rats, all contribute to their numbers swelling. Prolific breeders, their numbers can swell within weeks! But, as well as being a nuisance they also carry a bacteria that when humans come into contact with it, can make us very ill.

Pigeons – they can cause a huge amount of damage to buildings when the roost and nest. Rather than having expensive repair bills on a regular basis, why not invest in bird proofing equipment instead? These methods effectively and humanely stop birds from roosting on buildings.

Insect infestations – more common than you think, many people find that they homes are under attack from small, tiny, almost-too-small-to-see insects! These pesky little creatures find their way into our homes in a variety of ways – on our pets, our clothes, bags or simply blown in through an open window. Either way, our warm, well-insulated homes provide a perfect place for them to multiply and live.

Can I Deal With a Pest Problem Myself?

If caught early enough, some shop bought remedies and deep cleaning can be effective but all too often, we do not realise there is a problem until the problem has become sufficiently ingrained so that we notice, for example, seeing a rat during the day, notice fleas on the soft furnishing or waking up in the morning with a row of bites on us, indicating we may be sharing our bed with bedbugs.

As a qualified pest controller, I have many methods and chemicals available for use:

  • Many customers are concerned about the use of chemicals; be assured that I will only use the safest methods for use in and around your home and business, including areas where children and pets play. Likewise, the preservation of wildlife and the environment is a priority

  • I hold several specialist certificates including effective treatment of rats and mice, as well as some of the latest Rodent Proofing techniques

  • AND, all my pest control work is insured with Public Liability Insurance (£10m) and guaranteed too

Who I work with...

I work with all domestic customers in and around the Ealing, as well as all commercial premises including:

·       Landlords, letting agents and estate agents

·       Hostels, student accommodation, elderly accommodation and assisted living

·       Hotels, B&Bs and all types of tourist accommodation

Pestforce Ealing is proud to have services a wide array of customers, such as Tom below;

If you have a rat problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find them (google), you should definitely call PestForce. My basement flat was overrun with sewer rats and my family were terrified. Sean came round instantly (even though it was almost midnight), laid lots of traps, and when a rat was sighted even started hunting it with an air rifle. Sean caught all the rats, solved the problem, and gave us a discount on the final visit. He’s a lethal pest controller and a true gentleman, and I would recommend his services to anyone!

Think you have a pest problem or issue? Need help? Call me for a quick, responsive pest control service.

Drain Flies caused by Rats in Ealing Broadway - May 2020

We were called out this week by a tenant in a ground floor flat in Ealing Broadway.  The pest issue was a high number of Drainage Flies otherwise known as Sewer Gnats, Filter Flies or Sink Flies (Psychodidae).  These flies are commonly caused by a water leak or puddles of standing water containing grease, general waste debris and rotting organic materials.  Often we find the source to be a leaking pipe or water escaping around bathroom white goods such as a leak at the side of a shower.  On this occasion the source was not immediately obvious.  

Following some extensive investigations using CCTV, we exposed the boxing in behind the toilet and found a horrendous amount of dirty water and human waste.  Please see the video.  We traced this back to the toilet where a flexi-pipe had been fitted.  The flexi-pipe had a large hole where it had been chewed by rats. The Brown Sewer Rat (Rattus norvegicus) as most us accept exists in large numbers in the sewers.  If rats have an opportunity they will make their way into our domestic waste drainage system.  Usually they have nowhere to go as all pipework should either be connected to something or capped off if redundant.  However, if the rats find an open redundant or defective pipe run or on this occasion a flexi-pipe they can exploit this opportunity to enter a property structure.  

Rats had come up the pipework to back of the toilet where the flexi-pipe had been fitted before gnawing a large hole.  See area highlighted in red in the image.  Not only could the rats then get out of the pipe into the fabric of the building, they also caused a large leak of sewage.  This in turn caused the drain fly infestation.

To resolve both issues we removed the toilet and boxing in.  A full environmental clean was completed to remove the waste and clean the area thoroughly with appropriate biocides.  The main drainage chamber serving the building was then accessed to establish where the rats had come from.  A non-return valve (Ratflap) was then installed to prevent rat ingress from the main trunk sewer.  Essentially this is a one way door that allows waste to exit, but restricts rats from coming up the pipework.  The drain flies were also treated to eradicate the larvae and eggs.  This stopped the continuation of the insects life cycle.  

Both issues are now resolved.  The gnawed flexi-pipe was replaced with solid plastic pipe.  The boxing in had to be left open to allow the area to dry out completely before a carpenter attends to enclose the area with new materials.  A very relieved tenant, who thought they simply had a few flies.

Rats from Drains in Ealing (W5) - 2nd March 2020

Pestforce Pest Control Ealing have been attending a small block of flats in Ealing Broadway over the last 3 weeks following complaints from residents of rats outside in the communal bin stores and in the car park.  Residents have also had rats accessing the engine compartments of their vehicles and in turn had damage to fuel lines and electrics.  We attended and surveyed the site and identified the source of the rat problem to be from an open drainage chamber in an adjacent alleyway.  Rats had been migrating out from the sewer via a broken manhole cover.  We have carried out 4 treatment visits to site to eradicate the existing population of rats that had become well established residents in the area.  At the same time we educated all the residents to ensure all food sources are removed, particularly from the poor waste management in the bin stores.  We have now replaced the manhole cover that was defective with a new stainless steel cover, we had bespoke made due to the non-standard size.  The rat issue is now resolved with not a single rat sighting or any evidence of rat activity present for 7 days.  All treatment has been removed as the source of the issue has been rectified and hopefully residents will continue to not provide food sources.  A big rat problem, that has been resolved by simply fixing what was really a minor issue.  A great outcome for the client.

Rats love a uniform, Ealing (W5) - 22nd October 2019

Pestforce Pest Control Ealing were called last week to a school uniform shop in Ealing Broadway.  The shop had started to find damaged stock and couldn’t understand why, but saw what looked like rat droppings.  We attended within a few hours of receiving the call and confirmed rats were the culprits.  We surveyed the shop and the back of house areas and quickly established the source of the problem.  Rats had been entering via a redundant pipe gully that had been sealed into a partition wall. We didn’t want to use rodenticides due to the risk of deceased rodents in areas and could lead to a negative business image for the client.  The best approach was to carry out a controlled trapping programme over 7 days to remove the offending rodents.  We returned to site and accessed the disused pipe run through wall by installing an inspection hatch.  The pipe could then be sealed using fast setting concrete.  Job complete and problem resolved.  No more rats and an extremely happy client!
