Specialised Pest Control Services

Flea PEST Control

Fleas are most often brought into homes by pets. Because fleas can survive without food for 6 to 12 months, they are often a problem in previously-infested places and newly-occupied areas.

If you are uncertain you have a flea problem, a survey can be carried out and/or monitors can be used to confirm before any treatment is carried out.
Treatment consists of two chemical processes carried out 7 to 10 days apart.

Bed Bug PEST Control

Bed bugs are found in domestic homes and commercial hotels, in fact, anywhere there are beds! It is an unpleasant and distressing problem, as their biting causes great distress.

Bed bugs are frequently transferred on clothing or luggage from infested accommodation and can survive for over a year without food.

Our discreet and fully qualified pest control professionals will use the most effective up-to-date chemical eradication treatment available.

Moth and Carpet Beetle PEST Control

‘Clothes moth’, ‘textile moth’ and ‘carpet moth’ are all names given to the moths that cause damage to clothing, carpets, rugs and soft furnishings. Carpet beetles also cause the same damage.

Left untreated, moth and carpet beetle problems can get much worse and, unfortunately, DIY deterrents such as lavender or cedar wood don’t provide effective control once they are established.

We offer an effective chemical control method and/or a non-chemical method.

Rat PEST Control

Rats cause damage to woodwork, insulation and wiring by gnawing, resulting in damages such as burst pipes in winter, costly repairs, damage to and contamination of stock, and loss of revenue or even closure for businesses. Rats also carry serious diseases, which are spread through their urine and droppings, and they can cause sleeping disturbances in homes.

Rats breed prolifically, so it’s important to treat the problem as soon as possible. This is done through the use of rodenticides, traps or other eradication methods. Proofing can also be carried out to prevent rats gaining access in future.

Mice PEST Control

Mice can cause damage to property by gnawing through doors, floorboards, pipes and insulation. Their ability to chew through wires can lead to electrical faults or even fires. They also cause food contamination, spread serious illnesses through their droppings and urine, and infestations can lead to business closure.

Mice can fit through gaps as small as 5mm (the diameter of a pencil!) and breed prolifically, so it’s important to treat the problem as soon as possible.

Control is achieved using rodenticides, traps or other eradication methods. In some cases, proofing can be carried out as a preventative measure and advice provided to prevent the problem from recurring

Grey Squirrel PEST Control

Grey squirrels frequently get into lofts or roof spaces, where they build nests. They cause damage to fascia boards and create noise disturbances. The, damage caused by them stripping wiring and insulation can result in burst pipes in the winter, and the possibility of electrical problems or fire. They can also cause damage to plants and nesting birds in gardens.

Grey squirrels can be trapped in a loft using approved humane traps or in the garden using catch-alive cage traps. Proofing a loft can be a preventative measure to keep them out in future.


Over half of feral pigeons carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans.

Preventative measures can be adopted for these and other birds. Proofing work can be carried out to prevent access into roofs and lofts, and bird netting, spikes and other methods can be used to prevent roosting. We can also provide bird dropping removal and disinfection.

Rabbit PEST Control

Rabbits cause damage to lawns and plants and their burrows can result in leg injuries to livestock. Control is achieved by either gassing, humane trapping, catch-alive cage traps and/or shooting, usually with an air rifle.

Mole PEST Control

Moles can cause a lot of damage to gardens and landscapes, leaving lawns unsightly and very uneven, and damaging playing fields and golf courses. They also cause further problems for livestock by contaminating feed with soil.

We have extensive experience controlling moles, having completed jobs in both domestic gardens and in large agricultural situations with many moles.

Bee, Wasp and Hornet PEST Control

Dealing with bees, wasps or hornets is dangerous and ineffective without the right training, protection and equipment. In addition to the potential for allergic reactions from bee, wasp and hornet stings, wasp stings can also carry infection.

Wasp & hornet nests are usually dealt with from the outside by using a potent, fast-acting insecticide: a fast, effective control method. Sometimes nests are treated by breaking it down with chemicals. Old nests should be removed to prevent booklice appearing in the home. With specialist wasp training, we can also obtain and site wasp traps and provide excellent advice.

It is not our policy at OxPest to destroy bees unnecessarily ,but unfortunately there are occasions when they pose a threat to health or property and it just isn’t possible to leave or remove them.

Other Pests CONTROL

At OxPest, we deal with all other pests including ants, flies, cockroaches, foxes, silverfish and more.

Commercial and Domestic Contracts

We carry out a survey of your business or home before proposing a pest control plan suited exactly to your specific needs.

We prepare a folder for each location if necessary, with updated information including the risk assessment, further recommendations, a bait plan if applicable, details of work carried out, contractors’ qualification certificates and other information.

We also set up regular – usually monthly – repeat visits to your premises and conduct proactive inspections, offering you exceptional peace of mind.

A Comprehensive Guide to Identifying the Best Specialist Pest Control Service

Pest control services are an essential part of maintaining a healthy and safe living environment. Whether it’s your home, workplace, or a public space, pests can cause substantial damage and pose significant health risks. From insects like ants and cockroaches to rodents such as rats and mice, the presence of these unwanted guests can create an uncomfortable and unhygienic environment.

The role of pest control services is to manage and eliminate these pests, using a variety of methods. This can include chemical treatments, traps, and even the introduction of natural predators. However, the effectiveness of these techniques can vary greatly depending on the specific pest problem at hand.

This is where specialist pest control services come into play. These are professionals who have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with a specific type of pest. They use specialised techniques and treatments that are tailored to effectively combat and eradicate the pest at hand.

Understanding the Importance of Specialist Pest Control

The importance of specialist pest control cannot be overstated. While general pest control services can handle a wide range of pests, they may not have the specific expertise needed to deal with certain types of pests effectively. For instance, dealing with an ant infestation requires a different approach compared to handling a rat problem.

Specialist pest control services, on the other hand, have the training and experience to effectively tackle these specific pest problems. They understand the habits and life cycles of these pests and use this knowledge to devise the most effective treatment plan.

Moreover, specialist pest control services also consider the potential environmental impact of their treatments. They strive to use methods that are not only effective but also environmentally friendly. This commitment to sustainability is another factor that sets them apart from general pest control services.

The Need for a Specialist Pest Control Service

The need for a specialist pest control service is often clear when dealing with a persistent or severe pest problem. However, even for smaller or seemingly manageable pest issues, involving a specialist can have significant benefits.

For one, specialist pest control services have a deep understanding of the pests they deal with. They know the most effective ways to eliminate these pests and prevent them from returning. This can save you time, money, and stress in the long run.

Secondly, specialist pest control services can offer advice on how to prevent future infestations. They can identify potential risk factors in your property and suggest measures to address them. This proactive approach can help keep your property pest-free in the long term.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Pest Control Service

When choosing a pest control service, there are several factors you should consider. First and foremost, you should look at the company’s qualifications and credentials. Are they licensed and insured? Do they have the necessary training and experience to handle your specific pest problem?

Next, consider the methods and treatments they use. Are they using safe and environmentally friendly techniques? Are they up-to-date with the latest advancements in pest control?

Customer service is another important factor. A good pest control service will be responsive and communicative. They should be willing to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.

Identifying the Best Specialist Pest Control Service

Identifying the best specialist pest control service requires careful research and consideration. You should start by identifying the specific pest problem you’re dealing with. Once you know what you’re up against, you can look for services that specialise in handling that particular pest.

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, you should take the time to research each service. Look at their qualifications, experience, and customer reviews. You should also reach out to them directly to discuss your needs and concerns.

Services Offered by Specialist Pest Control Companies

Specialist pest control companies offer a range of services to address various pest problems. These can include treatment for specific pests, such as rodents or insects, as well as preventative measures to keep pests from returning. Many specialist pest control companies also offer inspection services. These can be particularly useful if you’re buying a new home or suspect a potential pest problem.

In addition to these services, some specialist pest control companies also offer advice and education. They can provide tips on how to prevent pests, identify potential risk factors in your property, and maintain a pest-free environment.
