We are experienced and efficient at treating all pests however the pests we most frequently tackle across Edinburgh are:
Day to day we deal with several pest control jobs across many different residential settings in Edinburgh. Our solutions are aimed at homeowners to ensure they are not sharing their home with any unwanted guests. Our services target the most notorious areas of the house where pests are more prevelant. This tends to include: the attic or loft, the basement, the garden, the roof, the kitchen, the bedrooms and the any other living spaces like the living room, dining room etc.
Our pest control services in Edinburgh also extend to commercial premises.Businesses aren't exempt from pest problems and need a specialist to take care of the situation. That's why we provide solutions for industries including but not restricted to:
Rats are one of the most notorious pests that plague the streets of Edinburgh. Rats are carriers of diseases and are the most numerous species of pest, equalling humans in major cities. None of us want to see a rodent in our homes, but if you do, simply call our Edinburgh rat control experts. 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 tell-tale 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.
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.
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.
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.
As experienced pest controllers in Edinburgh, we know that cockroaches elicit reactions like no other pests. 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.
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.
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.
We are delighted to provide bird and pidgeon control in Edinburgh and can also provide solar panel bird proofing in Edinburgh as pictured below.

We've had lots of experience in providing bird proofing solutions across Edinburgh. Today we completed a job near Morningside in Edinburgh where a house which had solar panels on the roof had a severe issue with birds. After a thorough inspection and careful consideration as to how best proof the roof and property from these birds, we installed some wire fencing around the solar panels to prevent the birds from nesting underneath, without detracting from the aesthetic appearance of the panels themselves. The customer was very pleased with our Edinburgh bird control service, and the results we've achieved which were noticeable immediately.

Mice Infestation in Home Extension - Edinburgh EH13, 2nd December 2019
Pestforce Pest Control Edinburgh were called by a young couple who were doing some home improvements on their property and were in the middle of an impressive home extension.
