Romford Rodent Control
Rodents can be such a nuisance. More so, when your house design supports the movement of rodents from one building to another, rodents can move from your neighbours’ house to yours. Sadly, rodents are cunning creatures that can quickly move from one point to another without you noticing them. We provide a full range of services in order to control your rodent problem.
Rat Control in Romford
Rats readily multiply, and they might bother you more as these young rats have to feed constantly. They take advantage of any opportunity to acquire food, and you might find them in your garden, at the house, or in outdoor buildings. Similarly, rats change their locations based on weather changes. These rats move to waterproof locations like garages, lofts, and cellars during cold or dry weather. Furthermore, rodents pose a serious health risk to you and your family members. They can spread rodent-borne diseases by contaminating your water and food. Luckily, we have experience handling whichever species of rats, whether at home or your business place. We can both get rid of the rats currently at your home and put in place strategies to prevent them from returning in the future. We understand all the rat hideouts at your place. We’ll be sure to remove them from house crevices, from your outdoors, or behind appliances.
Rodent Drain Surveys in Romford
Pestforce Romford now provide full CCTV drainage surveys to determine whether rodents are entering properties via faults in the drainage system. Our specialist drain camera allows for our technicians to locate potential entrance point for rodents within the drains. The majority of rat problems we deal with tend to originate from defective drains.
The key signs to be looking for as a customer and questions to be asked are as follows:
If your currently believe you have a rat infestation and your answer is yes to any of the below, it’s likely that the rats are getting into your property via defective drains.
- Have you recently had a new extension built?
- If so, are you hearing noises in the walls of your extension?
- If so, was the original manhole moved or a new one put in?
- Have you had a new kitchen fitted and changed the location of your sink?
- Have you changed anything to do with the drainage? (e.g. newly installed toilets)
- Has the original vertical stack pipe been relocated recently?
- Are you hearing rodent related noises more frequently after a rainy day?
- Have you had on-going rodent issues over the years where poisons alone don’t solve the problem?
- Does your house have cavity walls?
Please feel free to get in contact so we can discuss your issues further. We can then book in our rat detection team to solve your rat issues once and for all.
Mice Control in Romford
Mice enjoy warming our homes, love the nesting materials, and appreciate the abundant food supplies. Unlike bedbugs, you can hear these rodents as they move from one sport to another. The more movements you hear around your home, means the mice are multiplying. As they increase in numbers, you might be able to see them. Check whether shredded materials are on your floors and surfaces when you suspect you have mice at home but you cannot see them. Mice are cunning creatures, and they’ll use old cushions, cardboard, wood, or paper as nesting. Check your recycle box as they prefer to use these recyclables as their habitation. Mice can tear your clothes, spread diseases and even destroy your grains and groceries. If you don't act quickly, soon, the number of mice at your home will become uncontrollable. We have compelling and quick ways of eliminating mice. We can also use prolonged treatments to clear all your outdoors, surrounding buildings, and indoors of any mice.

Romford Cockroach Control
Cockroaches can be embarrassing when you have guests around. Some people do not simply like the smell and presence of cockroaches. They are primarily associated with dirty environments. Cockroaches too produce some musty smell that can taint your food baskets and kitchen surfaces. As a result, you can quickly get some diseases that these pests spread. Many times, you can see cockroaches scuttling to your room’s edges at night when you turn on your lights. Cockroaches speedily multiply, and they can be challenging to eliminate. They can hide within cabinet crevices, making it impossible for you to kill them manually. Fortunately, at Pestforce Romford, we have handled massive cockroach infestation successfully. We understand how these pests operate, and we have effective strategies to remove them from your home and make your home pest resistant. Regardless of the species and colour of the cockroaches at your home, whether black or brown, we can fix your situation and restore sanity.

Romford Bedbug Control
While most pests can be annoying to have around, bedbugs are the most annoying. They can give you sleepless nights and make your stays at home so uncomfortable.
Interestingly, you can carry these pests from a friend’s house or a holiday home. Bedbugs lay eggs anywhere and readily multiply. A single bedbug at your home can cause a huge problem.

Romford Flea Control
If you have pets at home, then you understand the challenges of having fleas. Interestingly, most homes in Romford have fleas because of basic birds like chickens. Some homes also have fleas as much as they dont have pets. Other hairy animals like foxes, squirrels, mice, foxes, rabbits, rats, and livestock can also carry fleas. These pests can bite and cause a lot of skin irritation and discomfort. When you have susceptible skin, these flea bites can be very itchy and can result in rashes. The flea’s saliva can also be toxic and make your pets develop some allergies. Fleas are tiny and do not fly, but a blood feed qualifies them to lay eggs. They have different life cycles and behave differently based on these cycles. Fleas have elongated legs that facilitate their jumping for long distances. Luckily, Pestforce Romford has effective flea control strategies for your pets and infrastructure. Our flea control strategies are safe and BPCA-tested to help you eradicate all fleas from your premises.

Pestforce Pest Control Romford received a call from a restaurant owner who was incredibly frustrated with pigeons, they had targeted this restaurant and had started to roost and nest on top of the shutter boxes and signage. Pigeons can be noisy and very messy, pigeon droppings – guano, is corrosive therefore would need a quick response to ensure little damage is caused to the signage. Our team arrived at the earliest opportunity to survey the restaurant, as we had expected there were numerous pigeons seen roosting on the signage and shutter box, there was also a substantial amount of pigeon guano surrounding the area. We issued the restaurant with a report of our findings and a quote with our suggested plan of action. We recommended a bird proofing gel would be effective, more discreet and could offer up to 10 years of protection, as the existing spiking was not proving efficient. The area would also require cleaning and sanitising works to remove all existing guano. We look forward to completing this work in the near future and this restaurant signage will be looking clean, bright and attractive once again.

Rat control for infestation at appartment complex in Chadwell Heath, Romford, RM6 - 5th March 2022
Pestforce Pest Control Romford has recently approached by a management company to implement a rat riddance contract to the exterior areas of the high-rise apartment block. The residents are getting more and more fury visitors into their apartments every day, so the management company have reached out for help. The solution: After carrying out a two-hour survey of the building, we quickly identified that rodents were using the sewer system and vertical stack pipes throughout the building to gain access into the individual apartments. Along with that many open cable duct works were observed and over areas of entry into the fabric of the building. We decided that the best course of action would be to heavily bait the local drains/ manholes around the grounds of the building, along with suspended baits into the ductworks. We also situated a circa 10 bait stations around the perimeter of the building and in more secluded areas to see what we get in the next week. A very happy customer as the residents are turning to social media regarding the issue. Some proactive work should make the residents be more at ease and slowly start to see a reduction of unwanted guests in their apartments.
