Pest Control expertise throughout Southampton

The city lies at the northern tip of the Southampton Water, a deep water estuary, where the rivers Test and Itchen converge. Southampton’s historic centre is located between the two rivers.

The port may have been the point of departure for the Pilgrim Fathers aboard Mayflower in 1620, but in 1840 the first P&O passenger vessel sailed into Southampton, marking the beginning of the cruise capital of the UK.

Southampton plays host to over four million visitors a year (approx. 1.7 million via the 4 dedicated cruise terminals – frequented by cruise lines including P&O Cruises, Princess, Cunard, Royal Caribbean) with cultural offerings, from museums, music venues and art galleries, to award winning parks (such as Mayfield and Southampton Common) and a diverse city with fantastic shopping, eateries and night life venues like WestQuay and Ocean Village.

Tourists, locals and students are sustained by a vast variety of cafes, bars, pubs, takeaways and restaurants. Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers, which can flourish in tourist areas, eating anything from rubbish in bins to discarded left-overs.

Scavenging pigeons and gulls will also 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 Southampton

Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers surviving in urban areas from Eastleigh to Sholing, 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.
