Pest Control Expertise in Barnet & North London

Barnet is derived from the Old English bærnet meaning "Land cleared by burning". The Roman road of Watling Street, which ran from London (Londinium) and St Albans (Verulamium) runs through the area.

The borough covers hills on the northern edge of the London Basin. In the north of the borough on is Barnet (also known as High Barnet or Chipping Barnet) Totteridge, and Whetstone. On the western side lies Edgware and Mill Hill. Further to the south, around the borough's centre, are the suburbs of Cricklewood, Colindale, Hendon and Finchley.

Locals and visitors are sustained by a variety of cafes, bars, pubs, take-aways and restaurants throughout the borough. Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers, eating anything from rubbish in bins and discarded left-overs to fruits and seeds in gardens and parks and food in our homes if they get in.

Much of the area is within the Metropolitan Green Belt, with a number of parks and open spaces such as Ravenscroft Local Park and Barnet Recreational Park. The Dollis Valley Greenwalk (a long distance footpath) runs between Moat Mount Nature Reserve in Mill Hill and Hampstead Heath, following the course of the Dollis Brook - is a tributary of the River Brent.

Rodents will use these green corridors and open spaces such as parks and gardens as safe harbourages to nest. Rats will then forage these areas and beyond in sheds, basements, garages and gardens for food scraps, spilt litter, unsecured bin bags and any other potential food sources.

Our team provide professional pest control services for homes and businesses throughout Barnet & North London. Our local technicians, surveyors, field biologist and avian specialists are BPCA (British Pest Control Association) certified.
