Kent Pest Control

As a family run business operating across Kent, we can help you with a range of pest problems, no task too big or too small for our highly-trained team. Here are just some of the pests that we can help with;


1. Rats
Rats can be a particularly persistent problem and a dangerous one at that. With the ability to gnaw through materials as thick and as dense as metal, rats that gain access to your home or business workspace run the risk of causing damage, spreading diseases and contaminating food – pathogens within their urine, for example, can transmit diseases such as salmonella and Weil’s disease.
Common signs of rat infestation include scratching noises, small dark brown droppings and markings on walls and floors. If you suspect that you have a rat infestation, our family run business can provide fully qualified and highly experienced 24-hour support.
2. Mice
Finding mice in your home or else in your workplace can be a distressing experience – as well one that can cause serious harm. Mice, on the lookout for food and somewhere to sleep, can pose a serious health risk through spreading diseases and can cause a number of other potential problems to your livelihoods.
Mice can cause permanent damage to your property and belongings and contaminate foodstuff through the spread of disease. Common signs that you have a mice infestation includes an ammonia-like smell, shredded materials, gnaw marks and small, dark brown droppings. If you suspect that you are infected with mice, our family run business can provide highly experienced, fully qualified assistance, 24 hours a day.
3. Cockroaches
As known carriers of diseases such as salmonella, dysentery and gastroenteritis, finding cockroaches in your home or workplace can be a particularly distressing experience- particularly considering the quick nature in which they breed. This quick ability to reproduce means that only professional, experienced expert care is enough to eliminate the problem fully. Our family run business, with subtle, sign-free transport for your privacy, offers same day call outs to tackle even the worst cockroach infestation.
Common signs of cockroach infestation include an unpleasant, lingering odour under sinks and in cupboards, shed, hard skin and droppings. If you suspect that you have an infestation, our business offers same day call outs to ensure that the problem is dealt with as quickly as possible.
Flies and maggots
5. Flies and maggots
Stopping flies from getting into your property is difficult, but a small fly problem left and not dealt with could turn into a serious fly infestation, leading to the spreading of diseases such as Salmonella or E.coli. Proactively working on preventing the spread of flies can be done by identifying the problem quickly; flies that are able to lay their eggs cause maggots.
Signs of fly infestations include maggots themselves, regular sightings of flies around your home, food and bins and small, dark clusters of flies in light areas. If you have fears of a fly infestation, our family run business offers same day call outs to tackle the problem quickly and efficiently.
4. Fleas
Perhaps the most common of UK pests, fleas are usually found in residences that house pets, although they can be found in pet-free homes as well. Fleas, a type of parasite, are most reputable for their bites and it is this that runs the most significant risk. While flea bites aren’t particularly painful; they can cause both rashes and itchiness that will affect humans and animals alike.
Although fleas are wingless, fleas have powerful, long legs that allow them to jump long distances, moving between you and your pets. If you fear that you have a flea infestation, signs of which include scratching pets, eggs and flea dirt, then our qualified and experienced experts can come to your aid as a same day call out, making sure your problem is dealt with stealthily.
Bed bugs
6. Bedbugs
Because of their desire to dwell close to a food source, bed bugs are found mainly in places where people eat or sleep, and if you’ve got them, you’ll be wanting to get rid of them quickly and without difficulty. Bed begs, notorious for their bites, can be incredibly distressing, particularly when bites get infected because of continuous scratching.
Common signs of bed bugs can include dark or black stains on your mattresses, a sweet, sickly scent, blood spots on the bedding or else live insects themselves. Bed bugs can be incredibly costly to control, so getting to them quickly and effectively is key. Get in touch with us today; our family run business can be called out 24 hours a day and at a moment’s notice.
7. Ants
Ants are a seasonal pest, preferring warmer temperatures but the ant species renowned to inhabit the UK can be incredibly tricky if they get into your home. While garden and black ants don’t necessarily carry diseases; they also have a habit of foraging outdoors in the dirt – who would want a dirt-covered bug rummaging through their food cupboards?
Common signs of an ant infestation are small piles of earth around holes in soil outside, which could indicate a nest, lone ants inside the house near crevices or large amounts of ants in your kitchen or other areas where food is prepared. If you find yourself with an ant problem, speed is key - get in contact to arrange a same day call out of one of our experienced and immensely qualified experts.
8. Beetles
Finding beetles in your home or workplace can be distressing, especially if you have no clue what to do about them. Common signs of beetles include the visual sightings of adult beetles or larvae, chewed fabrics and fibres and cast larval skins. Often, the presence of beetles is overlooked until it’s far too late because of their subtleties and it isn’t until considerable damage has been done to furniture that they are noticed.
While not directly damaging to health, beetles can carry diseases and can contaminate food if allowed to directly interfere with it. If you suspect that you have a beetle infestation then our friendly, family run business can provide expert professional assistance. Our service is both subtle and effective, meaning that your pest problem is dealt with in a timely and fuss-free manner.
9. Wasps
More common in the spring and summer months, wasps can be a pesky pest to deal with. With their painful stings, leading in some cases to an allergic reaction, wasps can cause a great deal of annoyance, living in sheltered areas on the inside and the exterior of your home. Wasps can be particularly stealthy, hiding within wall cavities, in spaces between roof tiles, in attics or lofts or else inside your garages.
If you believe you have a wasp infestation, chances are you’re hosting a nest which would require expert advice from one of our professional and experienced members of staff. Our discreet services ensure that your wasp problem is dealt with quickly and without fuss, leaving you to get on with life.
Bird fouling removal
10. Bird fouling removal
On a yearly basis, birds cause millions of pounds worth of damage to public property, cars, machinery and ventilation systems because of their fouling. If left uncorrected for long periods of time, bird droppings can cause serious damage and lead to serious problems because of their particularly acidic nature; the acid can eat away at certain types of material, leading to leakages, blockages and continuing depreciation of building life expectancy.
More serious examples of the damage caused by bird foul include collapsed ceilings, contaminated food and blocked ventilation systems- while appearing to be a small problem; it can lead to much bigger issues. Fully removing the ectoparasites from the site is essential, as well as a full disinfection.
If you have a bird fouling problem that is getting out of control, then contact one of our experienced expert team to arrange a consultation. Our family run business can attend to your needs on the same day and put a stop to any further, potential damage.
11. Silverfish
A common nuisance in the home, silverfish are renowned for their feeding habits and in large numbers can be particularly damaging, targeting photographs, paintings, plaster and books. While silverfish are able to survive in a number of different environments; they thrive in particular in damp, dark areas where humidity is high, such as inside basements or attics and in kitchens and bathrooms.
Getting rid of silverfish can be done quickly and effectively by our professional team, using targeted solutions to effectively deal with eliminating these pests. Our team works subtly, with sign-free transport, to remove fuss and ensure that your satisfaction is met quickly.
Bird proofing
12. Pigeons/bird proofing
Arguably the most popular pest, pigeons can cause unnecessary stress and damage to property. Known to parade in groups, pigeons and their waste products can cause an exponential amount of damage to buildings, vehicles and ventilation systems. As is the case with most bird waste, pigeon foul is acidic and can cause damage to buildings exposed to it in the same way that buildings are affected by acid rain and in more serious circumstances can result in collapsed ceilings and serious damage to a buildings’ foundations.
If you believe that your building or home is at risk because of pigeon fowl, our family-friendly business can provide bird control services as well as extensive removal of any bird foul. We offer same day services, subtly and efficiently, to ensure that no further damage is carried out.
13. Foxes
A pest to both rural and urban dwellers, foxes have, over the years, become much tamer and have moved away from solely rural living. Foxes are renowned for scavenging food from bin bags, and garbage piles and while they’re not necessarily a direct threat to yours or your pets’ health, foxes can carry diseases such as mange, scabies and distemper, as well as carrying fleas, another pest. Ensuring that your waste is stored away so that the fox cannot access it and access to areas where food is prepared or stored should be blocked off to prevent foxes from taking advantage. If you believe that you have a fox-shaped visitor, our professional and experienced team can provide you with the means and the advice to ensure that the problem is dealt with quickly and effectively.
14. Moles
While moles appear cute and cuddly; they can do considerable damage to your property. Constant digging of lawns, leafy greens and flower beds can lead to permanent damage to the roots of plants, as well as exposing stones and other debris that can damage machinery. For those who rely on their grounds looking pristine, moles can be especially costly and ensuring that a mole infestation is dealt with quickly is essential.
Acting as soon as moles are suspected can make sure that the problem is rectified quickly. Common signs of garden moles include molehills- newly formed hills will have loose and damp soil between grass blades- disturbed roots and uneven ground. If you suspect that you have an infestation of moles, get in touch with our reliable family run business, experts in ensuring quick and efficient removal of pests.
15. Spiders
Of the 35,000 species of spiders in the world, around 650 of these are found in the UK, and while spiders come at a benefit to the environment, a large percentage of people consider them their worst fear. Such a fear, known as arachnophobia, causes more than just a feeling of unease- it can lead to panic attacks, tears and excessive sweating. While the vast majority of the species found in the UK are completely harmless to humans, there are some spiders that do indeed bite- and for this reason, our business offers peace of mind inspections.
If you are concerned that your home or business workplace is hosting a spider species outside of the common house spider, then our experienced and expert team will do all they can to carry out a subtle and thorough check of the area, putting you and your household at ease.
Carpet beetles
16. Carpet beetles
Finding beetles in your home or workplace can be especially distressing. With a likening for window ledges, roof spaces and carpets, carpet beetles have mottled markings that given them a conveniently camouflaged appearance. Common signs of carpet beetles include the visual sightings of adult beetles or larvae, chewed fabrics and fibres and cast larval skins.
Often, the presence of carpet beetles is overlooked until it’s far too late because of its subtle nature and it isn’t until considerable damage has been done to furniture that they are noticed. If you suspect that you have a carpet beetle infestation then our friendly, family run business can provide expert professional assistance. Our service is both subtle and effective, meaning that your pest problem is dealt with in a timely and fuss-free manner.
