We are constantly receiving feedback from our customers and improving our pest control services, so that they will best suit your requirements and meet your expectations. All treatments that we carry out are compliant with the related pest legislation and the best practices in the industry.

At the first stage of implementing a pest control strategy, our pest experts will undertake a thorough inspection and risk assessment of your property, to be able to quickly identify the pest problem and locate the source of the infestation.

How we work

Depending on the evidence collected during the inspection and the initial risk assessment, as well as all the individual circumstances and requirements, the pest technician will draw the pest control strategy. You will be advised on the options available and, upon agreement, you will be provided with all the information, regarding the treatment and the legislation, such as the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH). Our pest experts will also give you all their recommendations and suggest what could be done to improve the situation or if you need to remove, replace or dispose of anything.

The UK’s pest laws encourage us to use less chemicals, so we offer 2 types of heat treatments, as well as other non-toxic methods and approach, such as proofing of your property, live electronic traps and others. In some cases, or with some particular pests, a combination of non-toxic and toxic methods is required, to be able to achieve long-term control. We use various insecticide and rodenticide bait traps, bait stations and other devices, we also carry out some handyman and other maintenance work. Prime Pest Control is providing the residents of London and all the surrounding counties with individually tailored hot air treatments or dry steam solutions for properties of all sizes and even single-room accommodations, a piece of luggage or furniture. The combined treatments and methods are usually producing maximum efficiency and high success rates of pest insect, bird and rodent extermination. With our treatments we sometimes implement methods for monitoring and prevention that ensure long-term control of pests.


Pest prevention

Nowadays, the risk of introducing a pest at home is relatively high, as some of the pest insects like bed bugs may hitch-hike luggage and clothes, hide within furniture and belongings making it easy to access your property. Others, such as rodents, will find direct access through entry points to your property, or make their way through obstacles.

Any clutter and food waste, which may be exposed, contributes as well for the development of various infestations and attracts other pest rodents, insects or birds. Poor level of cleanliness and maintenance are also in favour of the pests and will increase the chances of their introduction or speed up their development. When a domestic pest infestation is discovered most people try to solve the problem themselves, which is not always the best approach. In a lot of these cases professional pest control is required afterwards, due to a complexity of factors.

One of the reasons is that all pests, as living organisms, evolve and develop various resistance mechanisms to most of the common do-it-yourself sprays and products. In general, urban infestations start when there are “pest-friendly” conditions and certain measures are not taken. We are witnessing recent outbreaks of resistant bed bug infestations in London and other mega cities in the world, which is also due to the increasing number of people travelling abroad and bringing back the insects with them. The ability of all pests to adapt and strive for survival has also made pest control more challenging, however, the industry is evolving too and each year great improvements and innovations are generated.


Customer cooperation

It is essential that we discuss with our customers the recommended pest control strategies and agree on the methods that will be used. When it comes to domestic pest infestations, we will need your full cooperation and involvement. Essentially, you will need to follow all the procedures prior and post-treatment, which will greatly increase our chances of complete eradication and effective control of your pest problem. In most cases we would recommend thorough cleaning of all affected areas and disposing of the vacuum contents afterwards in a safe manner. Depending on the type of pest there are different kinds of preparations, which are also a subject of initial risk assessment, which is carried out by our pest technicians. All of the preparation procedures are been tailored according to the best practice codes and the pest legislation.
