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 Kensington. 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

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!

Noises under a Bath in Kensington, W8 - February 2020

We had an urgent request to attend a tenanted 5th floor flat by a letting agent on Saturday night.  The call out was following the tenants describing gnawing and scratching type noises under the bath tub.  We attended the same evening and waited for the tenant to come home.  While we were waiting we used the time to check the drainage inspection chamber serving the building for evidence of rats. Rats will often enter a building via the drains and then proceed into the fabric of the building, so by checking the drainage inspection chamber we can establish any evidence including smear marks, droppings, actual rats, blocked pipework, missing caps on interceptors etc.  On this occasion the drains were totally blocked, so we already thinking rats maybe the issue in this flat.

When the petrified tenant arrived we entered the flat.  The tenant, who had a phobia of rats and mice actually hid in another room while we set to work carefully removing the panelling around the back of the toilet and the bath.  As we lifted the top off to our surprise we did not find evidence of rats or even mice.  We found a large adult grey squirrel looking up at us - the tenant was bizarrely relieved when we advised what we found!  We then carried out a detailed inspection of the area and found severely chewed electrical wiring and wooden materials which all explain the noises being heard by the tenants.  The squirrel had quickly disappeared, so we installed specialist traps designed to humanely manage any squirrels.  We have now removed 4 squirrels from the property and the pest issue is completely resolved.  The client has been advised to urgently get a suitably qualified electrican to repair any damaged electrical wiring due to the risk of arcing and potential fire risk.  


Set up mouse traps and bait boxes

“I have a mice infestation and Sean has done a wonderful job. I say "have" because I still have mice but that is not because he did his job poorly, but because the infestation was pretty bad and it needed more treatment, but the landlord has become unreachable about this matter. Overall, Sean has done his job very well and I am more than pleased with the quality of it.”

Mrs R

Rat/Mice problem investigated and counter-measures taken.

“I contacted Sean from Pestforce Ltd concerning a potential mice/rat problem and when talking to him on the phone beforehand the first appointment, he was very friendly and gave lots of information. Also he was able to tell me the estimated costs involved. We got an appointment very quickly and Sean was on time. Communication beforehand, during and after were spot on which is very important. He investigated the property and let us know about the different options of counter-measures. Very reliable, competent, tidy and friendly - Highly recommended!”

Rat Infestation - cleared out the rats and preventative measures taken


Following some building work we discovered that rats were entering the kitchen. Sean arrived and very professionally dealt with the problem. It required 2 visits and a trap was also fitted to the sewer to prevent rats entering the building in the future. Throughout the work, Sean was very sympathetic, very knowledgeable, and followed up by phone afterwards. The overall price was reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend Sean and his company.

"A  big thank you to Mark and Sean for all their help getting rid of the mice in my flat.  I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a Pest Control firm to troubleshoot effectively, deal efficiently with the problem, and provide a reliable service throughout.  These guys are highly knowledgeable about a wide range of pests and Pest Control, with long experience of dealing with all sorts of pest infestations.  What really makes them stand out from all the other companies, though, is their personalized approach to each case and their first-rate customer care skills. I was really unnerved by the mice episode, but Mark was sensitive to that and reassured me he was going to use a variety of methods to prevent the mice from returning. He then proceeded to explain exactly what he was going to do at each step of the way, and made sure that I knew I could get in touch with the company if there was a recurrence.  He was respectful of my space, careful in my home, and double-checked to make sure there was absolutely nowhere left for the mice to breach the defenses.  Sean was equally reassuring on the telephone and managed to squeeze in an appointment for me when the team were already pushed because he realized I was panicky and didn't want to go through another night with mice in the flat.  When there was an unavoidable (minor) delay in arrival-time for the second appointment, Sean phoned to let me know an anticipated time of arrival.  Again, a small thing, but it made a big difference in terms of how valued I felt as a customer. I felt like I was in safe hands and knew I could rely on this team to sort the problem out".

Kind regards,
