Pest Control expertise throughout Bournemouth & Poole

The River Bourne rises in Poole and flows through the middle of Bournemouth, into the English Channel. The towns of Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch form the South East Dorset conurbation. Directly north of Old Harry Rocks, Bournemouth is at the easternmost end of the Jurassic Coast. Its own coastline stretches from Sandbanks to Christchurch Harbour and comprises of sandy beaches backed by gravel and sandy clay cliffs, cut by a number of chines which provide natural access to the shore.

Bournemouth's location has made it a popular destination for tourists, attracting over five million visitors annually with its beaches and nightlife. There is also a thriving youth culture due to the large university population and many language schools in the area.

Tourism is important to the local economy, with Bournemouth seafront alone being enjoyed by 4.5 million visitors, making it one of the UK's biggest attractions. Bournemouth also has a booming nightlife economy and is a popular destination for stag and hen parties. The town was awarded a Purple Flag for providing a variety of night-time activities while maintaining the safety of both residents and visitors.

The main shopping streets of Bournemouth are mostly pedestrianised with shopping malls, Victorian arcades and a large selection of bars, pubs, restaurants, takeaways, clubs and cafés. Other major shopping areas are situated in the districts of Westbourne and Boscombe.

Rats and mice are scavengers, which can flourish in these places, eating everything 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 technicians, surveyors, field biologist and avian specialists are BPCA (British Pest Control Association) certified. They understand the pressures that coastal towns face as opportunistic pests such as rats, mice, gulls and feral pigeons exploit the area, and have a wealth of knowledge and experience in finding the most effective solution to your pest problem.
