Environmental Pest Control have been involved in Pest Control for over 33 years.
Customer satisfaction has always been our focus. We feel that we go the ‘extra mile’ to ensure that you are 100% satisfied. As members of the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) you can be sure you are dealing with professionals who won’t let you down.
We are at the forefront of pest control industry developments and own some of the latest technology available. This allows us to provide a more efficient cost effective service.
We comply with all legislation, guidelines and codes of practice and are regularly audited by the BPCA to ensure we maintain the high standards expected by the UK’s leading pest control trade association.
Our COSHH assessments, method statements, systems of work, risk assessments and environmental impact assessments are all generated in house by our qualified staff to ensure you don’t have to worry about any aspect of your pest control service.
‘Environmental’ isn’t just a trendy word to us. As beekeepers we are fully aware of the impact that the inappropriate use of pesticides can have on the environment. The irresponsible and careless use of rodenticides can also lead to the secondary poisoning of our protected mammals and birds of prey.
All our technicians complete additional training and are accredited by the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticides Use (CRRU) “Wildlife Aware Technicians”
Pest control has changed a great deal over the last few years. The commitment to continuous development, which is required to maintain our professional memberships, display our passion for safe, cost effective pest control.
Where possible we explore the use of non toxic methods of control but we appreciate that this is not always possible. The decision to use pesticides is not taken lightly and we comply fully with the strict legal requirements when products are used.
None of our waste products go to landfill. Our trade waste is incinerated to produce electricity and our hazardous materials are returned to our suppliers Killgerm for environmental disposal and recycling. Where possible we use energy efficient products and services. The use of the latest technology helps us to minimise the use of paper and increase our efficiency.
Our experience in dealing with Pesticides has led us to diversify into herbicide treatments. Our knowledge and experience is now being used to safely treat ragwort which is a major problem for grazing animals and also weeds in public areas such as car parks, footpaths and recreational areas.

What happens during the winter months when weed activity stops ? Well having invested heavily in our equipment we try to use it as effectively as possible which is why our gritting and snow removal service has developed. Please click the link for further information.
So we are busy people but remember the saying “When you want something done, ask a busy person”. We are busy because our customers are happy and if they are happy so are we.

Barney is our hardest working and most enthusiastic member of staff. His only fault is that he is liable to sulk if we refuse to take him out with us.
