Recent Jobs

Mice job in Hythe, SO40 - 15th January 2020

Mice getting into the loft of a mid terraced 2bed house. This issue has been a problem for a number of years. Having spoken to the neighbours to offer a free external survey we found the main point of entry on an end terrace wall. The electrical box was hidden behind overgrowth and the door slightly open. Lots of droppings and the cable going into the building via a large gap in the brickwork confirm ingress route.

Squirrels in Southampton! - 4th May 2019

A customer in Southampton called Pestforce Pest Control to catch some squirells. The first visit was booked for 9am,we installed traps inthe loft and left. Within 2 hours I received a phone call from the client saying we had caught both squirrels already! We went back late afternoon to remove traps and block the access point. Job Done!

Field mice in Southampton,SO19 - 30th March 2019

Pestforce Pest Control Southampton received a call for Field Mice this week. They had been entering a property and needed to be removed. Due to the suroundings the use ofRodenticide, was not an option. Instead a three visits trapping solution was carried out and it turned out to three Yellow Necked Field Mice! Following this the points of entrywere positively identified and fully proofed. All in all a text book job converted correctly.

Wasps Extermination in Swaythling, Southampton

Last week I was called out to a building site in Swaythling, Southampton, where the construction team had identified what they thought was a wasp nest located on the site. Given the high likelihood that the use of building equipment at the site would disturb the nest and put all the labourers at risk, work around the area was adjourned as they sought me to remove the nest. On arriving at the site and doing a thorough inspection of the area, I actually found not one but THREE wasp nests harbouring around the construction yard. I swiftly treated the nests and removed them from the vicinity.

Mouse Spotting in an Unusual Place

I was called out to a customer’s home a short while ago. The customer had reported a sighting of a mouse in a rather unusual place…in the upstairs bedroom no less! Mice usually harbour in the ground floor or cellar spaces, so having seen a mouse in the cavities of the first floor was a real rarity! I was nonetheless able to treat the infestation and am continuing to monitor up with follow-up visits.


Wasp Control in a Southampton Flat

While a mouse infestation on a first floor presented an interesting job, the greatest pest control challenge came later that day when I was called to an 8th floor flat which was housing a wasp nest! Adorning my trademark Pestforce wasp suit and using effective wasp control extermination techniques accredited to industry standards, I was able to treat the wasp nest in no time at all. If you suspect that you might have a wasp nest harbouring in your property, don’t hesitate in calling me Jason Honan, your local expert in insect control, at Pestforce Southampton today.

Monster Wasp Nests in Southampton

As the summer season truly comes upon us, the amount of wasp jobs I’ve found that I‘ve been called out to has started to rise. But it’s not the amount of wasp jobs but also the sheer size of the infestations that’s really wowing me this year! I recently attended a particular nasty infestation in Southampton, for instance, where the wasp nest had rapidly grown to the size of a beach ball! While I was able to treat the nest with a highly effective insecticide, I thought best to tackle the beast later on at night, where the wasps would be docile and less likely to swarm attack!

Hidden Wasp Nests in Southampton's Hedges

Many of us can’t wait for the summer months to start gardening, however, those green fingers can easily get stung!! One of my customer’s learnt this the hard way, having cut a hedge which was hiding a particularly angry nest of wasps. Needless to say, the poor man was stung…many times! To avoid a painful copycat scenario, please do take caution when going about your garden pursuits. Always wearing shoes and protective gear and if you get even the inkling that a wasp, bee or hornet nest may be hidden in the undergrowth of your home or garden, don’t hesitate in giving me a call!

Rats Return to Southampton

I was called back to a home in Southampton which had been graced by a repeat visit from an unwelcome guest!! Having recently been treated for rats, the rodents had returned, chewing a new way through into the property and avoiding the proofing defences I’d previously put down. It is not uncommon for rodents to be sighted again at the property if the attraction of what’s inside (food, warmth for instance) is greater than the risk the rodent calculates of returning. Fortunately, I was able to retreat the property and add further proofing, since which the rats have disappeared.
