Expert Pest Control across Hull

Kingston upon Hull, usually abbreviated to Hull, lies upon the River Hull at its junction with the Humber estuary, founded late in the 12th century by monks of Meaux Abbey who needed a port where the wool from their estates could be exported, building a quay at the junction of the rivers Hull and Humber. Hull was built on trading and seafaring, whaling and later seafishing. Merchant's houses such as Blaydes House and some warehouses survive in the Old Town, where trade was centred on the River Hull, later shifting to the Humber docks. Although the fishing industry declined in the 1970s, the city remains a busy port, handling 13 million tonnes of cargo per year.

In recent years, tourism, the arts and higher education have become prominent in Hull’s economic regeneration and raising the profile of the city with over 5 million annual visitors contributing to Hull's economy. Pests have adapted to urban living in densely populated areas. Wherever people congregate so will parasite pests like fleas and bed bugs. The wine bars and pubs around Hull University and its accommodation area are popular with students. In particular, the areas around Newland Avenue and Prince's Avenue have seen a rapid expansion in continental-style bars, restaurants and cafes encouraged by the redesign of the street layout.

As well as offering refreshments to locals and visitors such establishments can be a plentiful source of food scraps for mice, rats, pest birds and cockroaches. Spilt takeaways, dropped litter and unsecured bin bags waiting for collection are other potential food sources that will sustain rodents, cockroaches and pest birds in urban areas. Our Hull team specialise in bird work, including fitting netting systems and our humane hawking - with birds of prey to keep sites (especially along the river Humber) free from gulls and feral pigeons.

Urban rats & mice across Hull

Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers thriving throughout urban areas such as Hessle, Stoneferry, Dunswell, Beverley and St Andrews Quay, that may offer them abundant food and shelter. Rodents are omnivorous, consuming contents of compost and rubbish bins to discarded left-overs and fruits in gardens and parks - even the food in your homes if they get in. They are synurbic species that thrive in our urban habitats, actively moving into towns and cities. The quickest and most effective way to get rid of rats or mice is by professional, targeted treatments.
