Domestic Pest Control Solutions in Canterbury
The industrial town of Canterbury is full of history and culture, but its quick train links to the capital of London and recent expansion have led to a growing population of over 40,000 people in a relatively small area.
Unfortunately for the residents of Canterbury, this dramatically increases your chances of finding pest infestations in your home. Rats, mice, cockroaches, bed bugs, squirrels, and pigeons will enter your property searching for food, shelter and water. Thanks to their rapid breeding rates, pest infestations can rapidly become out of control, and once they’ve made their way inside, it can be extremely challenging to remove them.
While the market is full of DIY treatments and solutions, we know from experience that they are rarely effective. Furthermore, attempting to control a pest infestation yourself can place you at risk of contracting diseases and injuries, which is why we always recommend leaving it to a professional.
Here at Pest-Tech, we deliver a wide range of pest control and proofing treatments to all homes across the town of Canterbury and the surrounding areas of Kent.
Our fully qualified and highly experienced technicians will take care of your pest problem in no time. So, contact us today at 01622 296055 to book a treatment for pest control in Canterbury.

Which pests do you treat in Canterbury?
We know just how distressing finding a pest infestation in your home can be, which is why we offer a comprehensive pest control service across Canterbury. So whether it’s rodents, insects and bugs or even birds causing you trouble – we’ve got you covered.
Take a look at the pests we treat below:
Bird Control Canterbury
Unfortunately, Canterbury’s proximity to the coast and countryside means the town is home to a vast number of birds – particularly pigeons and seagulls. Birds will enter your home through small ingress points and waste no time building their nest out of your belongings.
Not only will they keep you awake during the early hours of the morning, but pigeons are known carriers of numerous diseases. Their presence in your home places you and your loved ones at risk of catching a severe and potentially life-threatening illness. To help keep you safe, we offer expert pigeon control services across Canterbury.
As well as making their way inside your home, birds love to make their nests under solar panels. Unfortunately, however, they also leave behind a considerable amount of faeces, also known as guano. Bird guano is highly acidic, and over time it can cause significant and irreversible damage to your solar panels. Protect your investment for years to come using our professional bird proofing solar panels service.
Additionally, we know how frustrating it can be to have birds endlessly perching around your property. The damages they can cause and the health risks they present are more than enough reasons to want to keep your home bird-free for good. To help you achieve this feat, we offer highly effective and long-lasting bird proofing treatments, like bird netting, bird spikes, and bird gels.
Rodent Control Canterbury
Rodent infestations are typically the most common problems that we’re called out to solve. Rats, mice and squirrels will enter your home however they can manage, but the damage doesn’t stop there.
Rodents have incisors that never stop growing, and so to manage them, they need to grind them down via chewing consistently. Unfortunately, they will happily chew their way through your wooden beams, furniture and possessions to do so, causing irreversible damage that requires costly repair jobs. On top of this, they have also been known to chew through electrical cables, leaving you with electrical faults and potential fire hazards.
Rodents are also known carriers of diseases, which is why it’s vital to keep your distance from them if they’ve made their way into your home. Please avoid attempting DIY treatments; instead, contact us today for all your rat control, mice control and squirrel control needs.
Wasp Nest Removal Canterbury
During the summer months, wasps are on the hunt for a new suitable location to nest, which means this is the most common time of the year for wasp infestations. Unfortunately, due to the fast rates at which a nest grow, wasp infestations can get out of hand quickly.
Attempting to remove a wasp’s nest yourself is incredibly dangerous; wasps can be vicious, and if they sense their nest is being threatened, they will attack. In addition, wasp stings are painful, and depending on the person, they can lead to anaphylactic shocks that require emergency treatment.
If you’ve found a wasp nest on your property, we recommend leaving it to a Canterbury pest control specialist. At Pest-Tech, we have carried out hundreds of successful wasp nest removals across Kent. All wasp control jobs are carried out humanely, with the wasp swarms being relocated into the country where they can thrive without causing issues for people.
Bed Bug Control Canterbury
Despite popular opinion, a bed bug infestation is not a sign of uncleanliness or poor hygiene. Bed bugs make their way into your home any way they can, but usually, they’re picked up from hotels and public spaces. They will cling onto your luggage, clothing and shoes in order to find a new location to survive in.
Bed bug infestations can cause enormous discomfort and sleepless nights. Unfortunately, they can also breed incredibly fast, so it’s vital to contact a pest control professional as soon as you first notice signs of them in your Canterbury home. Our expert bed bug pest control service uses chemical and heat treatments in order to remove the infestation in all stages of life, thereby preventing their return.
Cockroach Control Canterbury
Similarly to bed bugs, cockroach infestations will rapidly get out of hand. Not only do they cause a revolting smell throughout your home, but they also carry bacteria, including E. coli, that can lead to food poisoning, dysentery and other serious health complications. We use both heat and chemical treatments, depending on your circumstances, to thoroughly remove the cockroach infestation from your home. Learn more about our expert cockroach control services.

Plus, depending on the type of industry your company falls under, pests on the premises could even result in complete business closure.
On top of these damages, pest infestations can negatively impact your business’s reputation and standing within the community, putting off existing and prospective customers, sending their business elsewhere, and dramatically reducing your profits.
It’s clear to see that pests and businesses do not mix. So to help protect your company’s reputation and keep you legally compliant, our British Pest Control Association qualified team offers commercial pest control services in Canterbury for all pests.
