Pest Control expertise throughout Stafford

The name Stafford means 'ford' by a 'staithe' (landing place). The first settlement was on a sand and gravel peninsula, providing a strategic crossing point in the marshy valley of the River Sow, a tributary of the River Trent. There is still a large area of marshland to the northwest of the town.

Stafford Castle was built by the Normans on the nearby hilltop to the west in about 1090, and forms a distinct landmark for drivers, being highly visible from the M6 motorway. Stafford has retained a unique identity with a mixture of modern and old architecture throughout the town, which draws a steady flow of tourists. The Elizabethan Ancient High House in the town centre is the largest timber-framed town house in England. The oldest building in Stafford is St Chad's Church, dating back into the 12th century. Carvings in the church's archways and pillars were made by a group of stonemasons from the Middle East who came to England during the Crusades.

The town is also home to the computer science and IT campus of Staffordshire University. The Beaconside campus houses the Faculty of Computing Engineering and Technology and part of the Business School. Nightlife consists of bar and club venues such as Casa, the Grapes, the Picture House and nightclub Couture/Noir et Blanc, most of which are in walking distance of each other. There is a big student patronage, with coaches bringing students from Stoke-on-Trent, Cannock and Wolverhampton.

All these students, tourists and locals are sustained by an array of cafes, bars, pubs, takeaways and restaurants. Scavenging rats and mice can flourish in such areas, eating everything from rubbish in bins to discarded left-overs. Scavenging pigeons and gulls will also take food scraps from restaurants, cafes, bars, takeaways and unsecured bin bags. Our local avian specialists offer effective deterrents for nuisance birds, such as netting, bird proofing and hawking - using birds of prey as natural deterrents to keep your premises free from gulls and feral pigeons.

Victoria Park (a Green Flag award winning urban park) on the banks of River Sow is in the heart of Stafford Town Centre and Wildwood park with its stunning canal side location is at the southern end of Stafford, offering locals and visitors pleasant, green open spaces within the town.
Rodents however can use green corridors along rivers, and open spaces such as parks and gardens as safe harbourages to nest. Rats will then forage in sheds, basements, garages and gardens for food scraps, spilt litter, unsecured bin bags and any other potential food sources.

Urban rodents in Stafford

Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers surviving in urban areas from Hixon to Burleyfields, 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.
