Rodent issues in London

Since the Victorians extensively embanked the Thames, many of its London tributaries were forced to flow underground, such as the Walbrook and the Fleet, which were enclosed, as sewers. These hidden highways, along with redevelopment and refurbishment of London’s buildings over generations, has led to hidden tunnels and unseen voids, within complex structural changes. These unseen routes, or 'hidden highways' give vermin such as rats and mice undisturbed access to buildings – large or small, historic or modern.

London attracts over 16 million international visitors per year, making it Europe's most visited city. They come to visit famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, and Trafalgar Square. London is also home to numerous museums, galleries, libraries (for example the British Museum, National Gallery, Tate Modern, British Library and 40 West End theatres). These visitors also need somewhere to stay and eat whilst visiting, which offers vermin such as rats and mice opportunities to scavenge. Rodents are omnivorous, eating anything from contents of refuse bags, bins to discarded left-overs from takeaways.

London's insect pests

There are other pests that have evolved to take advantage of dense urban city environments like London. Hitchhikers such as bed bugs can be unknowingly spread from one location to another in luggage or on clothing. Accommodation with a constant turnover of visitors can be susceptible to bed bug pests. As can those who are frequent travellers, unwittingly bringing these insects home with them. Bed bugs are difficult to treat, requiring professional solutions from qualified bed bug exterminators to ensure an infestation is successfully eliminated. Clothes moths can survive year round in heated buildings, hiding in dark, out of the way corners of wardrobes or cupboards, whilst their larvae nibble natural fibres in clothes and soft furnishings, wreaking havoc to delicate items made of silk, cashmere or wool.

Urban gulls & pigeons in London

London is one of the world's greenest cities with more than 40% green space or open water. The largest parks in the central London are three of the eight Royal Parks, Hyde Park and its neighbour Kensington Gardens in the west, and Regent's Park to the north. These green spaces offer rodents potential safe harbourages from which to scavenge. They also offer nuisance birds such as pigeons and urban gulls opportunities to forage. Pigeons and gulls have learnt to survive across London, scavenging waste food and using seemingly inhospitable areas of tall buildings and flat roofs to nest. Balconies, ledges, chimney stacks, guttering and culverts are favourite areas for these birds. It can be difficult to consider gulls as pests, yet an infestation can lead to property damage, health and safety issues.
