VPS understand pest control is an important element in looking after property, especially if the property is vacant. Ignoring the issue will in turn lead to more expensive and hard to deal with issues. This is why VPS have developed a one stop service to control, monitor and eradicate all known pests, with every solution tailored to your exact needs.
The types of pest species are vast, the most common being mice, rats, bed bugs, fleas and cockroaches. We are experts at eradicating all of these, plus the less common such as squirrels and mites.
The National Pest Technicians Association (NPTA) is a professional Trade Association that represents all sectors within the Public Health and Pest Control Industry. This accreditation puts us in an elite group of members who have undertaken a strict audit process that guarantees the professionalism, conduct and gives customers the assurance that all work is carried out to the highest standards.
All VPS operatives are given regular training to ensure all health and safety legislation is adhered to. Additionally we are a licenced waste carrier so can remove any necessary materials without the need for additional contractors.
Rodents and especially rats can harbour and transmit a number of serious diseases as well as being likely to introduce disease carrying parasites such as fleas and ticks into your home.
We use contact preparations and rodenticides as well as blocking off rodent access points.
Bed Bugs are parasites that feed exclusively on blood, they are not dangerous and don’t spread any diseases, but some people experience a reaction to their bites and they can be stressful to live with.
A technician will use special treatments such as insecticide to kill and remove the bugs.
Cockroaches are a troublesome pest, not just because they multiply rapidly but because they carry diseases such as salmonella, typhoid and dysentery.
Infestations have also been linked to skin disorders such as eczema and asthma.
Many DIY solutions fail as cockroaches are fast to adapt and are masters of evasion. We treat with chemical treatments and monitoring methods.
If squirrels decide to nest in your roof space they can cause extensive and expensive damage. Many people make the error of blocking off entry points. We recommend that you don’t do this until they have been eradicated. We recommend surveying the severity of the infestation first before embarking on treatments.
Wasps are notorious for nesting in roof and eaves spaces. Many people choose to remove them to eradicate the risk of being stung.
Your pest controller will spray the wasps nest which will kill all wasps in and returning to the nest within 48 hours of being sprayed
We can attend for other flying insect infestations.
