About us...

My name is Mark Robinson of Pestforce Rugby. I love helping my customers who are usually distressed and concerned about a pest problem.

I wanted to make a difference to customers and to get away from the day to day of my previous job so joined Pestforce and established the Rugby office. Every day is different and I look forward to the next challenge presented by my customers.

I was brought up in the countryside, so can usually be found out shooting in my spare time.

I love what I do and I hope that I can help you too.

Bats present in Birdingbury - 24th September 2019

Call to a property about potentially wasps, but customer thought it could be bees, but couldn't confirm due to the height they where active. I got the binoculars out, confirmed wasps. Headed to the loft, on entering the loft,which  was a nice loft (no clutter, fully boarded and tall enough for me to stand up!  Down the middle of the loft directly below the apex there was a area of droppings running the length of the loft, but not widely spread across the whole loft, just right down the middle , this should set alarm bells going in a pest controllers head, it did mine. Flipped the torch up to the apex, and sitting there looking down at me.... a long eared bat. Immediately existed the loft to have a chat with the customer,  that  there was going to be NO treatment carried out on  the wasp nest by me due to the presence of bats.

Just for info mice poo & bat poo are about the same size and shape, the distribution was the clue, mouse poo would of been spread over the whole area of the loft, not just down under the apex. Final test (please don't do this without gloves on in case it is mouse poo) but if you squeeze/crush the dropping bat poo will turn to dust and have a silvery/shimmery shine to the dust (as its made up on the wings and cases of insects they eat) mouse poo will be, if old, rock hard, if very fresh a bit squishy ie they dont turn to dust. If in doubt call in an proffessional.

Mole issue in Rugby - 24th September 2019

Call from a customer who has a large 2 acre paddock, surrounded on 3 sides by  crop fields, which have just been harvested and ploughed over. Moles arrived in 3 areas the day after ploughing. Previous experience of the customer was damage to his grass cutter blades, from stones pushed up in mole hills, after this he tried to flatten all hills prior to cutting grass adding an extra hours work and only to be faced with new hills the next day. His issue was resolved by Pestforce in 2 visits, he can now get on with his final grass cutting with out the worry of damage or extra work.

Wasps at a Rugby Club in Rugby - 27th July 2019

Wasp nest located at one corner of the roof just below guttering entering through failed pointing. Nest around head height, easy access, straight forward treatment as insecticide could be placed directly where required. Nest terminated, training resumed!

Chirping noises in Dunchurch, Rugby 6th February 2019

Pestforce Pest Control Rugby were called to a current contract, chirping noises had been heard in the cellar. On inspection, no obvious signs of anything that would chirp, certainly no chirping noises when I was on site (often the case). Before any treatment can be carried out, confirming which pest you are dealing with is vital. So to get a species identification, a series of sticky pad traps placed around likely areas of activity, sources of heat, behind fridges, pump units and air con units. I returned 2 days later to find a couple of catches: 

1) Ground Beetle, the black one, not a pest species

2) House Crickets (acheta domesticus) pest species

Treatment carried out sticky traps left in situ to continue monitoring after treatment. Followed up a week later, no catches good news, then as this customer is a regular contract, I left traps in place until next routine service, still no captures, premises now clear of house crickets.

Light infestation of bedbugs

Tell tale signs, reddish/blackish spots on furniture/bedding/headboards and in this case a wardrobe seems to be main harbourage (harbourage a place where bedbugs hide to digest their last blood meal) showing highest concentration of blood spots. All clothing from wardrobe bagged up and cable tied, to be washed at 60 degrees or placed in a bag in the freezer for a few days to kill any adults or eggs. Upsatirs rooms treated to a residual insecticide spray followed by a ULV (ultra low volume) fogging, A ULV machine atomizes  insecticide, so that it will pervade into every nook & crannie, driving bedbugs out of their hiding place on to the residual insecticide. No visible evidence downstairs, so bedbug traps left in place to monitor any activity, find out in a week if downstairs needs treating too!

Mole catching!

Today was spent working on a farmers fields between Stretton & Princethorpe. Beautiful morning, beautiful setting, couldn't really ask for a nicer 'office' for the day! 4 acres of fields and all the moles were gone within 3 visits!

Wasps still active in December!! 

On entering the loft space in Long Itchington, I immediatly spotted a sizeable nest, it had fallen from the rafter's, from the colour and condition it was likely a previous year's nest, but there were still wasps flying around...curious. A little more investigation and this years nest was found! Another good size nest, and still active, although the drones where sluggish. A lengthy conversation with the client followed, regarding treat or not treat with insecticide. Agreed on NOT to treat, and leave to die off naturally, the only wasp to go into winter will be the queen. I didn't charge for the call-out and arranged to come back in January to physically remove both nests, as work is planned for the loft space next year.

Mice in Marton!

Pestforce were called to a house where for two nights the customers had started to hear scurrying noises in loft. On inspection of the loft, mice were indeed present with a small quantity of droppings and some chewed insulation in a relatively small area. So not a large infestation. Discussion with client about control methods, use of traps or rodenticide. Agreed upon trapping only, as client was not morally comfortable with the use of rodenticide, and as a technician a small quantity of mice can usually be easily controlled with trapping (also with rodenticide you cannot control where they will eventually die). I returned 3 days later, 3 x catches in the traps, no more scurrying noises, no need to use rodenticide, win-win situation and a happy customer.

Dunchurch Rugby- 10th July 2019

Pestforce were called out as a clients conservatory had filled with Wasps: Nest location unknown at time of arrival. Following inspection, activity centered around an old dis-used chair. Turned the chair round to see entrance at the back.. wasp number increase, cut the back of the chair to expose the nest, wasp number increase again. Not a problem as of course suitably clothed in bee suit with elbow length bee keeper gloves. Thought this will make a great photo, couldn't use camera with gloves on, took one glove of got the photo, had a small strip of bare skin exposed for less than 10 seconds, bang first sting of the season. The wasp won that small battle, but lost the war, a nice blast of insecticide straight to the heart of the nest, rapid exit, job done and a very happy customer!

Another hot summers day, another wasp nest to treat!

This time the nest was in the sofitt. Treated with an extendable lance, to avoid getting too close. Although this time of year aggression is pretty low in wasps. Another successful treatment and the customer is back to enjoying the garden wasp free!

What a great place to work this afternoon in a very Sunny Rugby

Stunning pieces of art produced by one of the residents, dont think you can see from the photo, but these are 3D. Pieces where completed and put up in the garden in readiness for the centenary of the end of WW1. Lest we forget.

My first truly challenging mole job

After a successful removal of moles from my clients paddock and front lawns a month ago, a new one has decided to take up residency in a large mound (25m long, 3m wide and 1.5m high, consisting of earth and rumble. Tunnels difficult to locate, as when probing to find them, you "usually" feel a "pop" as your probe finds the tunnel, not here, it either goes in 1/2" then hits half a brick or drops right through into center of mound. When a tunnel is found, soil is so loose they simply collapse and you cannot get a trap in, and add to that they are able to tunnel in 3 dimensions, had tunnels at 45 dgerees, near vertical, popping out of the sides of the mound. Actually blanked (no catches) twice, I never blank twice on moles! Persistence and perseverance as ever paid off, 3rd visit to check his luck had run out. Job done, happy days, happy customer!

AM Friday 25th May

Call for 2 recently appeared mole hills, on a rather nice lawn, customer did the right thing....contacted a professional early. Friday PM visited & placed traps, returned Sunday 27th May for check of traps. Boom... caught the back garden vandal! Customer back to lovely lawn. happy bank holiday!!
