We provide cluster fly control throughout Hitchin to rid you of cluster fly infestations. Where it may be possible to deal with house flies in small numbers using DIY products, trying to get rid of cluster flies can be extremely difficult and not possible using products like sticky fly traps and sprays. Attempting to exterminate cluster flies with sprays is a waste of time and money.
The fumigators we use release a fog which can cover entire rooms and penetrate cracks and crevices. The fumes from the fog kill all the cluster flies in the room at the time of treatment (usually a loft space).
If you have cluster flies in the house, in the loft or outbuildings, call us now and we will get rid of them.

We provide cockroach control throughout Hitchin to rid you of cockroach infestations. If you have found cockroaches then you are probably feeling a sense of panic and want them gone immediately. For every cockroach you can see, there are surely many more out of sight, especially in the day time as they are nocturnal. Besides the obvious reason to want to get rid of cockroaches, they are actually extremely dirty and cause a potential danger to health by spreading harmful bacteria.
This is a great cause for concern around the home and something you should have treated as soon as possible, the earlier you star the treatment the quicker they will all be exterminated. For businesses this is also a great cause for concern, especially if the infected property is involved in the preparation of food. We can treat the infected rooms and place monitors down to monitor the infestation in all areas whilst treatment is in progress, once started we will soon have all of the cockroaches gone.

We provide mice control throughout Hitchin to rid you of mice infestations. The most common type of mouse to cause problems in the home around the UK is the house mouse. The house mouse likes to live close to humans, rarely venturing outside into the wild in order to avoid wet and damp environments.
Because of this, mice will enter homes and outbuildings, especially during the colder and wetter months. Once they have entered a building they will begin to gnaw at packaging and start eating whatever food they can get hold of. Whilst exploring the home, mice can move across food preparation areas, tables, cooking areas and work tops. Whilst it might not be visible, this can cause areas to become contaminated with mouse hair and urine.

We provide mink control throughout Hitchin to rid you of mink infestations. Mink have had a large impact on our water vole population, having quite literally decimated them. Currently there are wildlife conservation groups that monitor and trap the mink throughout Hertfordshire’s rivers in an attempt to reduce the numbers of voles that are lost.
Mink can become somewhat of a nuisance for people as well, especially those that keep fish, poultry and game for domestic or commercial purposes. Having a visit from a mink can be similar to having a visit from a fox in that it will kill more than what it needs to eat, killing in a frenzy. Common domestic pests such as birds, rabbits and guinea pigs can also be vulnerable.
