Pest Control expertise throughout East Grinstead

Our team provide professional pest control services for homes and businesses throughout East Grinstead and Mid Sussex. Our local technicians, surveyors, field biologist and avian specialists are BPCA (British Pest Control Association) certified.

They understand the pressures that communities face as opportunistic pests such as rats, mice, gulls and feral pigeons exploit vulnerable areas and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to provide the most effective solution to your pest problem.

Located in the Weald and with Ashdown Forest to the south of the town, East Grinstead has many historic buildings and sits on the Greenwich Meridian. Tourists and shoppers are drawn to East Grinstead High Street (containing one of the longest continuous runs of 14th-century timber-framed buildings in England). A walk along the historic High Street will take you back through 800 years of Sussex heritage; it boasts many historic half-timbered buildings and open hall houses in the UK. Some buildings date from the 15th and 16th centuries and there are splendid examples from Georgian and Regency times too.

Visitors also come to see Sackville College, the sandstone alms-house built in 1609 where the Christmas carol "Good King Wenceslas" was written by John Mason Neale. All these visitors are sustained by an array of cafes, tea shops, bars, pubs, takeaways and restaurants.
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 nuisance birds, such as netting and wire systems and hawking, using our birds of prey as natural deterrents to keep your premises free from gulls and feral pigeons.

The Forest Way and Worth Way linear Country Parks (which follow the disused railway line from Three Bridges through to Groombridge) are part of the Sustrans national cycle network, linking Eat Grinstead to the surrounding countryside. To the south of the town lies the Weir Wood Reservoir and a nature reserve which is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. However rodents can use these green corridors and open spaces such as parks and gardens as safe harbourages to nest. Rats will then forage in sheds, basements, garages and gardens for food scraps, spilt litter, unsecured bin bags and any other potential food sources.

Urban rodents in East Grinstead

Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers surviving in urban areas from Brockhurst to Blackwell, 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.
