  • What is a pest ?

    Animals are described as pests when they:

    • Threaten public health
    • Cause loss of goodwill
    • Become a nuisance through bites/stings or 
    • Cause damage through gnawing or eating

    A hierarchy of risks are considered when clearing an infestation, starting with proofing, to stop further infestation and to prevent the problem coming back. Prevention of food/water/harbourage is often the next step, following by treatment of the infestation.

    Pest ID use a variety of the latest solutions to control/eliminate pests in Essex. With no two sites being exactly the same and when dealing with wild creatures a lot of thought is required to come up with the right solutions.

  • Areas of Expertise

    Our pest control company in Essex offers a number of industry specific solutions as well as dealing with general household pests. Listed below are some of the main pests we deal with on a daily basis.

  • Wasps are particularly aggressive if threatened and send an 'attack' pheromone to anyone close enough to harm the nest. Treating quickly by a professional is the only safe answer.

  • Rats can cause widespread and severe damage, including fire risks from gnawing electrical cables. They can contaminate food and spread several diseases such as Weil's disease.

  • In addition to their irritating bites, bed bugs can become disruptive and costly to control if treated at the first signs of an infestation.

  • Grey squirrels are the main contributor to the demise of the red squirrel. If they enter your loft space, much damage can be done including fire risks from gnawing electrical cables.

  • Left untreated, moles can ruin lawns, parks and pitches. Their tunnels and mole hills are potential trip hazards that can damage the ankles of humans and livestock.

  • As well as being a major nuisance, Feral Pigeons are particularly unhygienic contaminating foodstuffs. Their fouling can cause damage to structures and be very harmful to health.

  • Transference of harmful pathogens that cockroaches pick up from the floor, drains and waste areas can be a serious health hazzard and should be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

  • Maggots feed of putrid materials and as such the adult flies carry numerous diseases that they transfer onto food. Proofing and control can help avoid lots of unnecessary illnesses.

  • The larvae of moths can cause extensive damage to clothing, carpet and textiles as well as contaminating food and stock.

  • A widespread pest that can contaminate food and cause damage through gnawing. Mice can spread several diseases that can be passed on to humans, including toxoplasmosis.

  • Wild rabbits can cause untold damage to crops and their tunnels can undermine foundations, banks and even railway tracks. As cute as they are, they can become a very expensive problem. 

  • Fleas are small wingless parasites that feed on the blood of mamals such as cat, dogs and even humans. As they pierce the skin of their host and feed on the warm blood, this can cause allergic irritating reactions.

      With a Wasps Nest establishing itself very quickly behind the fascia of a single storey extension, there became a need for swift action by a Pest Control company. Essex Pest Control Ltd were called and able to attend within a very few hours. The attending technician Liam Searles was friendly, efficient and resolved the problem with professional competence. The company are very well recommended. 23rd July 2019

      Dale from Pest Id was prompt, courteous and professional. He inspected the whole property in addition to the areas I highlighted and gave a thorough treatment. There has been no recurrence of ants in the areas treated. We agreed an additional treatment as part of the initial assessment, he returned to remove new activity and left additional traps. Dale advised to contact him if there was any reoccurrence of the ants.

      Absolutely Outstanding service. These guys care, I previously used another company called JG Pest Control who were rude, unprofessional and completely dismissive, they attended my house more than 5 times with no success. I spoke with Ian from Pest ID about my issue and he was nothing but understanding and thorough, after the 1st treatment which Ian did, he contacted me to see how everything was and they decided to do another treatment to be safe, Liam did my second treatment and he also was a pleasure, again they have contacted me a few times since to see how everything is, the problem has now been gone for over 4 months so we are free at a fraction of the cost of JG Pest Control. I would strongly recommend Pest ID

      I have just had my solar panel proofing carried out. PestID responded to my call very quickly and came within a couple of days. The work was carried out extremely efficiently and without any problems. Any question I raised was answered fully - I can now feel confident that my pigeon problem has now been resolved. I would have no hesitation in recommending this firm to anyone with similar problems - absolutely first class

      Had previous encounters with people trying to sort out the pigeons under the solar, and after them being really poor I was so very pleased with Pest ID, responded quickly to my questions even on a Sunday, arranged a time that was convenient to come and check the solar panels and one the very good price was agreed a time was booked to do the work. They arrived bang on time and carried out the work they said they would, they were tidy very professional and efficient and I can’t recommend them anymore. Really nice guys and really pleased with what they’ve done. Thank you Ian very much.
