Pest Control in Norwich

Norwich sits on the River Wensum, which for 800 years was the lifeblood of the city carrying goods to and from Norwich; in flat sailing barges, called wherries. The wealth generated by its wool trade throughout the Middle Ages financed many of the churches throughout the city; consequently, Norwich still has more medieval churches than any other city in Western Europe north of the Alps.

Norwich city centre has streets full of medieval charm, including the remains of the ancient city walls and a wealth of historic buildings. Adjacent to Norwich cathedral is Tombland meaning "open space" that consists of little cobbled alleys, full of restaurants and bars. The cobbled streets of Elm Hill (one of the oldest streets in Norwich) are flanked by original Tudor houses many of which are now little shops and cafes. It’s reputed that there are more Tudor houses in Elm Hill than in the whole of the City of London.

Through professional knowledge, expertise and experience they know what attracts pests to your premises and the most effective methods of controlling them.

Norwich Pest Control Services

Norwich is a popular destination for city breaks and day trip visitors, with attractions such as Norwich Cathedral, the cobbled streets, Norwich Castle, Cow Tower, Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum, Dragon Hall and other museums. Locals and visitors alike are catered for by a variety of hotels, restaurants, cafes, bistros, pubs and bars. These establishments and those who frequent them can inadvertently offer a source of food scraps for vermin such as rats and mice, cockroaches, pigeons and flies.

The city currently has 23 parks, 95 open spaces and 59 natural areas managed by the local authority. Chapelfield Gardens in central Norwich became the city's first public park. Sewell Park and James Stuart Gardens were donated by benefactors. Heigham Park, Wensum Park, Eaton Park and Waterloo Park were created later, during the early 20th century. These idyllic open spaces can offer refuge and harbourage to vermin like rats and mice, as well as a source of food for them and pest birds. Rodents will also make use of nearby gardens, lofts, sheds and basements to move quickly between properties in search of food.

The built-up area of Norwich extends beyond the city boundary, with extensive suburban areas on the west, north and east, including Costessey, Taverham, Hellesdon, Bowthorpe, Old Catton, Sprowston and Thorpe St Andrew.  This has helped to make Norwich the fourth most densely populated local-government district in the East of England. Wherever people congregate, so will pests, from cockroaches and flies to parasitic pests like fleas and bed bugs.
