Pest Control in Stoke-on-Trent

Stoke-on-Trent is lies about half-way between Manchester and Birmingham, adjoining the town of Newcastle-under-Lyme. The city is in the upper valley of the River Trent at the foothills of the Pennines. Stoke is a polycentric city, being made up of six towns known as the "Staffordshire Potteries". They run in a rough line from north to south along the A50 road – Tunstall, Burslem, Hanley, Stoke, Fenton and Longton.

Stoke-on-Trent is a world centre for fine ceramics, with this skilled trade having existed in the area since at least the 12th century. Affectionately known as The Potteries, its rich industrial heritage and history, Stoke-on-Trent claims to be the World Capital of Ceramics. The city's Cultural Quarter in Hanley contains the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, the Regent Theatre and the Victoria Hall. Tourism to the city was kick-started by the National Garden Festival in 1986, and is now sustained by the many pottery factory-shops, visitor centres and tours, and by the improved canal network. 

Our experts work throughout Stoke-on-Trent and ‘the Potteries’ providing professional pest control for homes and businesses. Your local team of technicians, surveyors and field biologist are BPCA (British Pest Control Association) certified.

Stoke-on-Trent Pest Control Services

In recent years, Hanley and Stoke have become increasingly popular with, pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants to sustain the pottery visitors and locals alike. This can offer opportunities for scavenging rats, mice, cockroaches and feral pigeons to find easy food scraps from unsecured bin bags and spilt takeaways.

The Trent and Mersey Canal, with traffic of some 10,000 boats a year passes through Stoke-on-Trent, along with over 100 miles (160 km) of cycle paths in the urban conurbation including those in Newcastle-under-Lyme. Rodents will use these green corridors, along rivers, canal banks and verges of cycle pathways as safe harbourages to nest. Rats will then forage in sheds, basements, garages and gardens for food scraps, spilt litter, unsecured bins and any other potential food sources.

Rats and mice are scavengers flourishing in urban areas from Bradwell to Mount Pleasant, that can offer them easy food and shelter. Rodents are omnivorous, eating anything from contents of refuse and compost bins and discarded left-overs to fruits and seeds in gardens and parks and 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.
