Pest problems we deal with

Mice and rats are prolific breeders year-round. The seek food and shelter in homes, restaurants, shops and offices, getting inside via the tiniest cracks or holes. Drains provide a perfect living environment for rats and they climb up through the pipes to enter a building.

Flies and cockroaches enter homes and business premises during the spring and summer in search of food. They are prolific breeders so an invasion of a couple of these pests soon becomes a huge infestation.

Bed bugs are very difficult to get rid of. People bring them into homes, offices and public places on their clothes or in their luggage. They can also be hidden in furnishings and clothing imported from abroad.

Fleas are brought inside by cats and dogs, and occasionally by humans on their clothes. They live in carpets and only move from the carpet to feed on animals or humans, leaving an itchy bite.

The larvae of clothes moths and carpet moths are massively destructive. A female moth lays up to 50 eggs which become larvae after a few days. They feed on wool and silk carpets, curtains, rugs and clothes. They are a problem year-round as centrally heated homes keep them active during the winter.

Birds such as gulls, pigeons and house martins roost and nest on buildings. They cause damage to roofs, solar panels and air conditioning units. Nesting materials block guttering and chimneys. They produce large amounts of droppings that smell unpleasant and are unsightly, carry diseases and corrode metals, stone and brick.

Solar panel proofing is a long-term solution to prevent pigeons roosting and nesting under the panels, preventing them causing damage that reduces their effectiveness.

Rodent proofing prevents rats, mice, squirrels, glis glis accessing a building. Ultimately it saves costs by stopping repeated call outs to pest control technicians to get rid of infestations.

Squirrels and glis glis find their way into loft spaces and cause lots of noise and damage by tearing up insulation and gnawing timber, pipes and wiring.

Wasps and honey bees often nest in chimneys, roof spaces and other cavities within buildings. Colonies can consist of thousands which are very noisy and if they’re disturbed they will sting.

Ants usually live in nests in the ground. They only invade properties in search of food, but they mostly travel in large numbers. Prevention is the best cure but because they can access a property via a tiny crack it is difficult to find how they’ve gained access.

Foxes are noisy and scream loudly at night, mark their territory with unpleasant scents and droppings, attack pets, dig up gardens and scavenge in bins. They carry disease such as mange which can be picked up by dogs and toxoplasmosis that causes blindness in children.

Ladybirds collect in huge numbers in the autumn to hibernate. They are a nuisance as there are so many of them and they secrete a yellow chemical which can stain walls, furniture and window frames

Rabbits cause damage to lawns and plants. It is a legal obligation that every occupier of land takes responsibility to prevent rabbits from causing damage.

Molehills usually appear in early winter and spring. This is when moles dig temporary shallow tunnels just below the surface of lawns and flowerbeds whilst searching for earthworms. They push up displaced soil in vertical tunnels which form the molehills.

About Epsom

Epsom is a market town in Surrey, 15-miles south west of London. The earliest evidence of human activity here is from the Middle Bronze Age. The settlement grew up in the area surrounding St Martin’s Church in the 6th or 7th centuries. It appears in the Domesday book of 1086 as Evesham, becoming known as Epsom from 1718 (ref Wikipedia). The street pattern of the town was established in the Middle Ages.

Epsom is located on a spring line where London clay meets the chalk of the North Downs hills. The spring on Epsom Common was found to be rich in minerals which became famous as Epsom Salts. During the 17th century Epsom became a prosperous spa town with many prominent visitors benefitting from the waters. King Charles 11 was a regular visitor and it was in Epsom that he met Nell Gwyn. Other visitors include Samuel Pepys, Constable and Millais. However, by the mid 1720s its popularity had waned due to competition from other spa towns such as Bath.

Today, Epsom High Street is dominated by the clock tower, erected in 1847. The town’s historic fabric has been maintained even with the addition of a modern shopping environment, the Ashley Centre.

Epsom Downs Racecourse hosts two of the five English Classic horse races, The Derby and The Oaks. At The Derby in June 1913, the suffragette Emily Davison stepped in front of King George V’s horse, sustaining fatal injuries. A new statue of Emily Davison was unveiled in Epsom’s Market Place in 2021.

Epsom occupies an excellent location with the rolling Surrey countryside to the south and transport infrastructure enabling easy access to London. In 2005 it was named by Channel 4’s Location, Location, Location as the “Best Place to Live” in the UK. It ranked at numbers 8 and 3 in subsequent years.
