Rat Control in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Rat Control

There is no more hated pest in the UK than the rat. Carriers of diseases, they are the most numerous species of pest, equalling humans in some major cities. None of us want to see a rodent in our homes, but if you do, simply call our Edinburgh rat control experts on 0131 278 0895.

Not only does our Edinburgh rat control team deal with infestations, but we also focus on prevention too. That includes spotting the signs of rats to ensure we deal with the issue quickly before they breed. With Pestforce Pest Control Edinburgh, we advise you that 3-5mm rod-shaped droppings, holes in the walls and floors, and footprints and tail marks are all telltale signs.

To eliminate your problem once and for all, we will use baits, traps, and poisons to stop them coming back for more. It doesn't matter whether they're big or small or reside in the open or the walls - we have the tools to remove them from your home and keep them away.

Rats are health risks and fire hazards, so you should call us on 0131 278 0895 if you see the signs detailed above and our Edinburgh rat control team will help get rid of your rodent problem.

Mice Control in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Mice Control

Mice are related to rats, and they leave the same signs that they're using your home as their domicile. Unlike rats, they like to travel and that makes them harder to deal with in many ways.

Our Edinburgh mice control services don't only target your home, but the nearby areas too. Our mouse survey is thorough because these rodents like to search for food and drink before they return to their new home. Once we understand the extent of the situation, our trained Edinburgh mice catchers will use the latest housekeeping, stacking, proofing, and cleaning techniques as part of our Edinburgh mice control strategy.

If you want to stop mice from invading your home, call our Edinburgh mice control experts now on 0131 278 0895.

Flea Control in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Flea Control

Pets are a fixture in lots of homes across the UK. As pet lovers, we want our pets to be as comfortable and healthy as possible. Unfortunately, dogs and cats can easily catch fleas and spread them throughout the house, leading to an infestation. The odds are you hear about people with a flea epidemic in Edinburgh quite regularly.

We don't want your home or pet to suffer, so our Edinburgh flea control service aims to prevent skin irritation that's often in the form of red blotches. To do this, we target cat, bird, and dog fleas, the three most common variations in the UK. Our trained Edinburgh flea control technicians can spot the signs of an infestation and provide advice on the next steps.

We act quickly because fleas only take four weeks to complete their lifecycle. To find out if your home has fleas, call George on 0131 278 0895 today and book a free inspection.

Bed Bug Control in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Bed Bug Control

Bed bug control in Edinburgh is increasingly affecting more and more homeowners. Like fleas, bed bugs feed on blood and leave red, blotchy marks on the skin that are incredibly itchy and irritable. They also breed quickly and nest everywhere from cracks in the walls to your furniture (and obviously around your bed).

You can't do much when you spot the signs of an infestation because bed bugs are the most objectionable of pests. Therefore, our Edinburgh bed bug control services are robust to the point where we leave no stone unturned in your house. But, there's no need to worry, as our pesticide solution is safe to use around adults, children, and pets. As a result, our specialist Edinburgh bed bug controllers will ensure your home is liveable as well as bed bug free.

Signs include clusters of bites that are close together as well as drops of blood on your bedsheets. To eradicate the problem, you can talk to your personal, dedicated Edinburgh bed bug control expert, George, by calling 0131 278 0895. Pestforce's bed bug service in Edinburgh is the only way to secure peace of mind and starts with a free inspection.

Cockroach Control in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Cockroach Control

So, our Edinburgh cockroach pest control solution aims to solve the problem as quickly as possible so that you don't have to share your home or business with a pest that can survive a nuclear apocalypse!

With us, you can trust that this creepy crawly won't bother you any longer than necessary thanks to our unique qualifications and cockroach control treatments. At Pestforce, we strive to learn more about one of the most common household threats in the UK, which is why we can spot different variations. If it's an Asian, German or American cockroach, our Edinburgh cockroach control team will identify it straight away and take steps to remove them from your home.

Never assume that a singular cockroach is an anomaly. One leads to two and three and spirals into an infestation. Have you seen a cockroach in your home or business in Edinburgh?

Bird Control in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Bird and Pigeon Control

Take one look around and you'll see plenty of birds in Edinburgh that call our beloved city home. Birds are lovely to look at, but only when they're not using your home as a makeshift coop. Nuisance birds, such as pigeons, flock to residential and commercial properties to nest and raise their young.

For the exterior of your home, this means you will have to deal with corrosive bird faeces that strips away the render and the brickwork. And, if they get into your house, the mess and smell will be almost impossible to live with daily. Because individual species are protected, and as birds are flexible and get into hard-to-reach spaces, you need our Edinburgh bird control solutions. We use our unique bird control approach to remove and proof your home so that they never return.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to see some examples of Edinburgh bird proofing we have done recently and how we have protected one customers solar panels from being damaged by birds.

We can also provide a full clean-up of the area. So, if you want to benefit from an end-to-end service that includes a biocide to reduce the chances of spreading diseases, call George now – your local Edinburgh bird control expert - on 0131 278 0895.

Outdoor and Wildlife Pest Control in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Outdoor and Wildlife Pest Control

Pests come in all shapes and sizes, and you may be faced with an animal that is larger than you're comfortable confronting. From moles, rabbits, and rodents, our Edinburgh large pest control services are here to protect your health and keep you safe.

The two biggest and most prominent household and commercial pests are foxes and squirrels. The former is native to the UK, while the grey squirrel is an invader from the US. Unlike some of the other insects and rodents on this list, foxes and the red species of squirrels are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and Wild Mammals (Protection) Act 1996. That's why our fox and squirrel Edinburgh pest control services use live catch traps and safely re-release the animals outside of built-up areas.

Although they look cute and cuddly, foxes and squirrels carry diseases, threaten pets, and administer a painful bite. We use our expertise to ensure you're not in harm's way, which is one of the reasons to call George on 0131 278 0895 for a free quotation.
