Pest Control in Harrow
Harrow is part of London and has an older sewer system as well as old housing stock. This means that Harrow gets more than it’s fair share of pest control problems, especially pest problems with rats, mice, cockroaches and bed bugs. Pest control problems with these pests are more prevalent in older premises. The older sewers mean that there are more cases of rats emerging from sewer breaches and the rat population in older sewers is far greater than rats in newer systems. A single breach in a sewer can lead to pest control problems in a wide area surrounding the breach. Older housing also means
more cockroach and bed bug pest control problems. PESTUK currently has pest control contracts in shops, offices, take away restaurants, schools, pubs and serviced offices in Harrow and the surrounding area.
As well as our expanding pest control contract base in Harrow, PESTUK carry out many ‘one off’ pest control treatments for domestic and commercial premises including wasp nests, hornets, ants, bees, squirrels, mice, rats, fleas, cockroaches, bed bugs, foxes, moles and other pests.
Some of the pests we deal with:
|Rats||You may see rats during daylight hours but they prefer to operate at night.|
|Ants||Worker ants will frequently enter dwellings foraging for food, particularly sweet substances.|
|Cockroaches||Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal so they are more likely to be seen at night.|
|Squirrels||The most common complaint about Squirrels is when they take residence in a loft space.|
|Mice||You may see, hear or smell a mouse problem or see other evidence such as burrowing in insulation or soil.|
|Wasps||Wasps are aggressive and will sting readily if they think the nest is in danger.|
