Expert Pest Control throughout York

York is a historic walled city at the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss in North Yorkshire. York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe, dominates the city. York's centre is enclosed by the city's medieval walls, with Snickelways, narrow pedestrian routes, many of which led towards the former market-places in Pavement and St Sampson's Square. The Shambles is a narrow medieval street, lined with shops, boutiques and tea rooms.

With the emergence of tourism, the historic core of York became one of the city's major assets, and in 1968 it was designated a conservation area. The existing attractions were supplemented by the establishment of the National Railway Museum and the Jorvik Viking Centre.

This growth in retail and tourism in the city has led to the development of many hotels, pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants to provide for visitors as well as locals. Scavenging rats, mice, pigeons and gulls will take food scraps from restaurants, cafes, takeaways and unsecured bin bags, making these areas ideal for such pests. 

Our local pest control experts deliver targeted, innovative solutions to effectively eliminate pests such as rodents, bed bugs, cockroaches and clothes moths.

While our avian specialists offer effective deterrents for a variety of nuisance birds, such as bird proofing and hawking, using our birds of prey as natural deterrents to keep your premises free from gulls and feral pigeons.
