I recently had a serious and potentially dangerous issue with wasps. I called Essex & Suffolk Solutions firstly for pest control advice and then followed it up with a call out. It was handled very quickly and supportively, which I appreciated because I was rather stressed about it. Amy and Mandie were really sweet and understanding on the phone. Nick was also very understanding when the location of the wasps was difficult to get too. The cost of the call-out was very reasonable and I cannot praise this pest control company enough. They all put me at ease. I highly recommend that if you have an issue with any type of pest, give Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions a call. You will be very pleased you did. It really is worth the peace of mind.
We had rodents in our garage. Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions turned up on the same morning that we had reported it. Very helpful and professional in their approach to the pest problem, which immediately puts you at ease. Wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
I work for a large housing association and whenever I can I use Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions. Their quotes are always very competitive and their service is always spot on. Nick always goes above and beyond and solves the pest issues whether it’s rodents, fleas, wasps or whatever. They keep you informed every step of the way and I would highly recommend them to anyone with any sort of pest problems. A* service every time.
We had a severe mole infestation in our garden in Kesgrave, near Ipswich, Suffolk. Molehills everywhere ruining my lovely lawn and causing a hazard when my young boys wanted to play football. I rang Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions and was given clear advice and details of how the treatment would proceed. Nick was so confident that he could solve our problem that he was able to guarantee the work for me. Using traps Nick cleared our infestation promptly and efficiently with no disruption to our busy family life. His knowledge was exceptional and he kept me informed throughout the process. I would not hesitate to use Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions for any other pest problems I might have in future.
I am a landlord of a commercial property in Ipswich town centre which was suffering with a pigeon problem. I called Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions, who provided a fast, efficient and professional service at a good price. They thoroughly cleaned and disinfected the whole area, including the gutters and floor area below, and removed all the waste from site. Netting and spikes were then installed to prevent future problems. I was delighted with the results and would definitely use Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions again and would also recommend their services to anybody else requiring bird-proofing work or help with bird control. A first-class and friendly service.
Absolutely fantastic pest control company and I echo what other people have said that family business just seems to offer so much better service. We used them twice (for 2 different issues) after someone recommended them to a friend via Instagram. The people at the office were an absolute pleasure to deal with, so polite and helpful and the guys that came out to do the work turned up exactly as they promised, carried the work out to get rid of the wasps we had and the treatment worked perfectly. I would highly recommend pest solutions to anyone, we would never use anyone else now, literally the closest thing I have seen so far to a perfect company.
You have every reason to be proud of the service you provide. Carpet moth infestation is an unsettling, worrying and anxious situation and Ricky took the trauma out of it. He went out of his way, over and above the call of duty, to fit in with my timetable! I was very pleased to express my complete satisfaction with your pest control service. The procedure was explained very thoroughly, including the health and safety aspect. Ricky was very professional, efficient and clearly took pride in eradicating the source of the problem. I left my house in his care with great confidence and returned convinced that I was not sharing my home with carpet eaters any more. Thank you and many, many thanks to Ricky.
Very efficient. Essex & Suffolk Pest Solutions inspected the property carefully prior to giving me a quotation for making my solar panels bird-proof. Now I no longer supply heated accommodation for the local pigeons. The men who applied the grilles around the panels knew exactly what they were doing. I was really envious of their scaffolding! They came when they said they would come. They answered any question which I and my wife raised. I cannot fault their work.
Just wanted to say thanks to you guys for doing such a great job today, Ricky was great and very professional on-site. I would certainly come back should I have the requirement again and I would also recommend you to anyone as well. Thanks.

How long does it take for pest control to work?
How long it takes to get rid of your pests will often vary depending on a number of factors, such as the type of pest and severity of the infestation. It is worth noting that you should not be alarmed if you see an initial increase in the number of pests after your treatment. In many cases, you should allow a few days for the pest control treatment to take effect before you begin to see a positive impact.
Typically, you should see a noticeable decrease in the number of pests in under a week. However, it may take a few more weeks for the infestation to clear completely.
What are the signs of a pest infestation?
Catching a pest problem early can dramatically improve the chances of successfully exterminating all of the infestation. Here are a few tell-tale signs that you may have a pest infestation on your hands.
Droppings: Whether you are dealing with rodents, bugs or other pests, finding excrement can be a sign of an infestation.
Smells: Any unusual or foul smell could be an indication of a pest problem.
Damage: Keep an eye out for damage, such as chewed and scratched furniture, half-eaten food, holes in the walls or flooring, or other damage that could be associated with infestation.
Sounds: Unusual noises such as scurrying, squeaking or gnawing are good indicators of a larger pest problem, such as rats.
When you detect a pest infestation, it is important to act quickly to prevent the situation from worsening. You may be able to control some outbreaks yourself, with at-home traps and repellents. If you are worried you are dealing with a more serious pest problem, call an experienced pest control company.
Are pest control services safe for pets?
Generally, pest control treatments are harmless to your pets. However, some animals can have more of a reaction to pesticides used in these services than others. It would be very beneficial to make your pest control company aware that you have pets before they begin to tackle the infestation.
There are a few steps that you can take to make sure your pet is extra safe while the extermination is carried out.
Keep your pet away from where the pest control service is taking place. If this is inside, keep your pet outside or in a different room for a few hours if possible.
Move any of your pet’s items (such as toys, beds, blankets, food bowls and other items your pet comes into contact with) away from the extermination site to reduce the chances of contamination with pesticides used. Washing these items after the extermination has finished will also help to remove traces of pesticides.
For animals such as fish that may be difficult to move, a sheet or similar protective cover over the top of the tank or enclosure will help to protect them from potentially dangerous pesticide particles in the air.
How often should pest control be done?
It is usually recommended that pest control measures are repeated quarterly until the infestation has been completely removed. However, this is entirely dependent on factors such as the number of pests, type of pests, and severity of infestation. A more severe infestation, such as a large carpet beetle infestation, may require multiple treatments to completely clear, while a smaller-scale pest problem, such as a small rat infestation, may be resolved with only one treatment or traps and remedies that can be purchased at a supermarket. Contact a local pest control specialist to discuss your pest control needs and develop a clear plan and timescale for your extermination.
How do I prevent a pest infestation?
You can greatly reduce the likelihood of a pest infestation occurring by putting into place preventative measures on your property. For example,
Seal potential entry points. Many pests enter buildings through holes and cracks in the walls or flooring. So, ensure that any small imperfections in your property are patched up and secure.
Make sure that your property is free from dampness. Many pests are attracted to damp, dark crevices, so it is important to clean and maintain your property well, opening windows frequently to allow air to circulate.
Store food in secure containers to avoid attracting pests such as ants, mice and rats.
How do I get rid of a pest infestation?
The first step in combating a pest infestation is to identify the pest that you are dealing with. Keep an eye out for telltale signs of pests, such as smells and droppings. You can compare any information you gather to descriptions of pests online to determine exactly what pest has made its way into your property. This will help you determine the right remedial steps to take.
After pinpointing the type of pest within your property, try to find the source of the infestation. This may be a hole or crack in your wall or floor, nests or stagnant water among other things. Unless you can combat the infestation from the source, you will never be able remove the risk of future infestations occuring. As best you can, this source will need to be removed or repaired to prevent the infestation worsening.
When dealing with a severe pest problem, or pests that could cause harm (such as wasps), specific pesticides, treatments or procedures may be necessary to completely clear your property of pests. When this is the case, it would be wise to contact a local pest control company for guidance.
