Pest Control expertise throughout Plymouth

Known as Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth is one of the UK's most vibrant waterfront cities. Nestled between the mouths of the rivers Plym and Tamar where they join Plymouth Sound to form the boundary with Cornwall. It’s often used as a base by visitors to Dartmoor, the Tamar Valley and the beaches of south-east Cornwall, but also attracts many visitors to its historic Barbican and Sutton Harbour, with quaint cobbled streets, picturesque harbour and a wealth of independent shops, galleries, bars, cafes and restaurants along the water’s edge creating a metropolitan feel. Royal William Yard is a group of historic military buildings and also the largest collection of Grade 1 listed military buildings in Europe.

Union Street (built in 1815) is at the heart of Plymouth's historical culture, known as the servicemen's playground, during the 1930s, there were 30 pubs and it attracted such performers as Charlie Chaplin to the New Palace Theatre. It is now the late-night hub of Plymouth's entertainment strip. There are many events and festivals held including the annual British Firework Championships, which attracts tens of thousands of people across the waterfront. 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.
