Pest Control Bristol

Expert Pest Control In Bristol

Pest control in Bristol is all about finding the source of the pest problem. Integrated pest management or IPM requires a combined approach.

If we use rats as an example – we carry out CCTV drain investigations, drain repairs, rodent trapping, baiting and exclusion. We also look at the environment – removing water, food and nesting opportunities.

When you apply a combined approach to any pest, you have the very highest chances of lasting, even permanent success.

Most pest control business operating in the Bristol area are focussed only on treating a problem because it means repeat business. We focus on solving it so we never need to return.

Bristol is home to dozens of different kinds of insect, bird and rodent pests. We describe pests falling into three categories.

Nuisance pests – these include ants, woodlice and silverfish. For the most part, they are not considered important carriers of disease and do little in the way of damage to property or products.

Economic PestsRodents, beetles and moths are all considered economic pests. This is because they cause enormous damage to property and products like food.

Disease Vectors or Disease-Carrying PestsFlies, fleas, rats, pigeons and bed bugs are all considered vectors of disease. They can carry and spread disease.
