Our Services

Pest Control

Using advanced pest management techniques, our treatments range from wasp control through to ship fumigation. We provide an innovative, professional and environmentally responsible service using Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices.

IPM uses current, comprehensive information on the pests, combined with chemical and non-chemical techniques to eliminate your pests quickly and effectively.

Disinfection and Fumigation

We can supply a full regular maintenance service or carry out a single one-off job.  See below for the list of services Pestex offer:

  • Rodent Control
  • Insect Control
  • Bird Management
  • Fly Control
  • Fumigation

Rodent Control

Rats and mice are the most common pests in the UK. They invade your premises looking for food, water and shelter. The infestations can pose a serious health risk by contaminating, soiling and destroying commodities and packaging, damaging equipment, buildings and spreading pathogens.

Their history of spreading disease frightens everyone. A single rodent sighting can easily drive customers away and result in inspection and prosecution that will certainly impact your business. Rodents will destroy valuable stock and possessions, consume and spoil food, and their gnawing and burrowing cause costly structural damage.

For commercial and industrial customers, regular inspections and monitoring will ensure that even the occasional 'visitor' is controlled. All methods are performed in a responsible and professional manner to achieve the desired result and ultimately minimise risks to your business.

Insect Control

Pestex Services bring many years of knowledge and research into insect behaviour and treatment to ensure that the solution designed will deliver targeted and optimal results. We provide a comprehensive insect control and monitoring service, helping your business identify insect-related risks and remove avoidable costs.

Pestex Service use highly trained technicians that will determine the scale of infestation and identify the species for correct treatment. We offer solutions for every insect pest problem:

  • domestic insects
  • biting insects
  • stinging insects and their nests
  • stored product insects
  • wood boring insects
  • turf /grass pitch insects

Our comprehensive insect control service can also include the fitting of purpose built fly screen windows and doors as well as a wide variety of traps including state of the art electronic fly control units.

Bird Management

Pestex Services remove avoidable costs through professional and humane bird control solutions. As pest professionals, we understand bird behaviour, so we can quickly identify locations around your premises where bird activity is most likely to occur, and the potential consequences.

Our approach is always about prevention first - and we have a range of effective measures and systems to prevent birds from creating issues, avoiding costs for your business. These include:

  • Bird Netting systems, including flame retardant net to BS5438
  • Sprung Wire systems
  • Point / Spike systems
  • Electric Bird Deterrent systems

Pestex Services are licenced by the Environment Agency as waste carriers and can clear away and dispose of bird waste effectively. The area is then treated with an avian disinfectant to remove any microbial activity, and with a suitable insecticide to control any insects or mites that might have been present in the material.

Fly Control

Pests such as flies and wasps are highly mobile and make no distinction between food prepared for our consumption and any other surface that they land on, walk over, defecate on or eat.

We offer a range of electric fly killers and fly screens to exclude and eliminate flies. All fly screens are made to measure and fitted by trained installers. Our range includes:

  • Window screens
  • Door screens
  • Fly screen mesh curtains
  • Plastic Strip Curtains
  • Electric fly control units

Our fly killer range covers small domestic and commercial units through to large, high capacity industrial fly killers. To compliment the design of your work environment, we also offer slim, lightweight models, and units disguised as up-lighters and ceiling lights for maximum discretion.
