What pests do we control in Colchester & North Essex?

Our expertise covers a wide variety of critters that can cause problems in both commercial and residential areas, and you can discover the most common species we deal with below.


Queen wasps emerge (and begin building new nests) during the spring, but for many people, they are so much more than a ‘nuisance’. They bring a very serious threat – with stings capable of causing swelling, sharp pain or life threatening conditions. Our wasp control experts can ensure your home or business is free from wasps, allowing you to get back to your life, whilst enjoying the warmer weather without fear of being stung.

Spread throughout parks, gardens and woods, squirrels may not be the most feared pest in the UK, however, grey squirrels are very resolute, and when they scurry into holes in the walls, or between false walls, they’re very difficult to get rid of. They have been known to bite through roofs, causing serious damage and costly repairs.

Possibly one of the most feared rodent pests in the UK, rats can spread diseases, whilst they are known to damage woodwork, plastic, bricks and lead pipes. When you combine these potential issues with the fact that rats are incredibly agile and can breed rapidly, a professional pest control expert is a must – especially if you want to completely eradicate an infestation.

The number of fabric-destroying moths continues to rise in the UK and this is largely due to an increase in natural fibres as well as improved central heating systems and drier homes. They’re more than capable of ruining clothing, carpet, drapes, upholstery and bedding, whilst they may even contaminate food in your home, so it’s important moth infestations are dealt with quickly and effectively.

Moles may not necessarily be a physical threat to people, but they can cause significant damage to gardens and landscapes, mainly by building their tunnels underneath, damaging the root system of lawns and ornamental plants. If you spot raised areas or tunnels in your lawn, it’s highly like you have a mole problem, so don’t let it get out of control!

Like rats, mice can also spread diseases in their droppings and urine, whilst they can be very destructive, gnawing on plastic and wooden furniture. Being incredibly flexible, these clever little creatures can easily reach kitchens, basements, lofts, garages and cavity walls. If you’ve recently heard scratching sounds or seen droppings, it’s essential you contact North Essex Pest Control as soon as possible because they will multiply rapidly.

Fleas can arrive in your home after hitching a ride on your dog, cat or your clothes. They are parasites that feed on the blood of any warm-blooded bodies, causing irritation, intense itching or sore skin. They can also transmit a variety of viral, bacterial and rickettsial diseases, so if you’re having issues in your property, we are best placed to eradicate flea infestations.

Cockroaches prefer undisturbed storage places, whilst they may arrive in your property via unnoticeable cracks or pipes, whilst some may even hitchhike on the cardboard boxes or shopping bags that you bring home. Common places cockroaches are found include behind fridges, under sinks and in dark cabinets. Only a professional like North Essex Pest Control can eradicate cockroach infestations once and for all.

Possibly the hardest working flying insects, bees can be fascinating to watch, however, they can hurt children and cause serious problems such as dizziness or difficulty breathing. In some cases, they can cause severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), which can be life threating. That said, with 25% of all bee types now endangered, eradication would always be the very last option for any professional pest controller, yet we can ensure issues are properly managed using the latest bee control techniques.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs can make it very difficult for you to get some good quality sleep, whilst they are known to feed on the blood of animals and humans. These tiny critters multiply promptly, and in just six months several bed bugs can turn into a mammoth infestation of over 10,000! It’s therefore important to act fast and break the cycle before it gets out of hand – and that’s where our highly trained, friendly and experienced team can help.

Tiny, intelligent and hardworking. These are just a few words we’d use to describe ants, however they can also be incredibly infuriating, especially when the queen lays thousands of eggs and the colony grows. Most ants live in the countryside and don’t cause too much bother, however, certain species make their way into our homes and businesses, making incredibly large nests as they search for food sources. We can quickly identify their access points, whilst focusing our extermination techniques on the queens that have made nests within your property or grounds.
