Residential Pest Control

Pests within domestic properties are unsanitary, unpleasant, and often dangerous. Whether rats and mice have burrowed into your London property, bed bugs have invaded your rooms, or wasps are nesting within your external walls, the sooner you take action the better. London homes both old and new are at risk, with pests able to enter through minuscule cracks and holes.

Animals like mice and rats will quickly leave toxic bacteria through urine and droppings, which is especially dangerous within environments where food is prepared. Whether you are noticing the first signs of pest intrusion or are dealing with an infestation emergency, contact our team today for professional, thorough, and prompt service.

The Types of Pests We Find in London

Pest Control in LondonLondon houses the perfect conditions for many kinds of pests, with dense urban areas, damp weather, millions of citizens and thousands of restaurants. In our decades of experience working across London, we’ve seen a full range of pests, developing tested practices for their permanent removal.

  • Rodents: London is famously plagued by rats, with millions of brown rats breeding across the city. The dense urban nature of London provides huge amounts of food for rats, which can easily burrow into buildings through small holes and cracks. As they breed quickly this can easily lead to a rat infestation if left unchecked. Mice are also an issue in London, able to enter even smaller holes and prone to chewing through wood and cables.
  • Birds: Pigeons are an iconic feature of London and the cause of much mess and disturbance to businesses. Whether they’re dirtying the exterior of a property or nesting within the rafters of larger buildings, feral pigeons can disrupt a business and even spread disease, a major health and safety concern. Read our bird control page for more info.
  • Insects: London’s density, wealth of older buildings, and ample public waste mean that it is rife with insects, which can easily cause huge disruptions to a business. This could include ants, cockroaches, flies, wasps, spiders, bed bugs, fleas or more. These pests can cause huge issues to a range of residential and commercial properties, and should be dealt with by an insect control service as soon as possible.
