Pest Control expertise throughout Cambridge

The city is located in an area of level and relatively low-lying terrain just south of the Fens. In 1209, Cambridge University was founded by students escaping from hostile townspeople in Oxford with the oldest college that still exists, Peterhouse, founded in 1284.

The River Cam flows through the city from the village of Grantchester, to the southwest and is bordered by water meadows within the city such as Sheep's Green as well as residential areas. Like most cities, modern-day Cambridge has many suburbs and areas of high-density housing. The city centre of Cambridge is mostly commercial, historic buildings, and large green areas such as Jesus Green, Parker's Piece and Midsummer Common.

Visitors are attracted to Cambridge by its history, architecture and culture. The city was described as one of the "most beautiful cities in the world" by Forbes in 2010, with tourism generating over £350 million for the city's economy.

All these visitors are sustained by an array of cafes, bars, pubs, takeaways and restaurants. Rats and mice are scavengers, which can flourish in such areas, eating everything from rubbish in bins to discarded left-overs.

Scavenging pigeons and gulls will take food scraps from restaurants, cafes, takeaways and unsecured bin bags, making these locations ideal for nuisance birds. Our local bird control specialists can offer innovative, effective deterrents for a variety of nuisance birds, such as netting and wire systems, bird proofing and hawking, using our birds of prey as natural deterrents to keep your premises free from gulls and feral pigeons.

Urban rodents in Cambridge

Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers surviving in urban areas from King's Hedges to Granchester, that can offer them easy food and shelter. 

Rodents eat anything from contents of refuse and compost bins, discarded left-overs to fruits and seeds in gardens and parks as well as food in our homes if they get in. 

If you’ve seen signs of rats or mice the safest and most effective way to get rid of rodents is by professional, targeted treatments.
