  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Urban foxes in particular have become fearless in their pursuit of scavenging, leaving particularly foul smelling excrement. Mass kills of poultry and livestock can also become a serious problem.

  • 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.

  • 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.
