Based near the Essex and Suffolk coast, we specialise in shipping container fumigation at ports across East Anglia and London. This is a vital pest control service for Harwich and other ports in the area, as it prevents the transportation of pests and disease to or from the UK. At Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions, our professional team of technicians are on hand to provide a range of pest-related services at ports, including the fumigation of cargo before distribution and the checking of containers that have been quarantined by the relevant Port Authorities.
In addition to our port services, Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions provide a full range of commercial pest control services in Harwich. We offer pest control services to all businesses in the area including offices, pubs, restaurants, workshops, agricultural organisations and warehouses. Our commercial contracts are tailored to the needs of individual businesses and we provide complete peace of mind with continuous monitoring, reporting, preventative advice, as well as providing free call-out services for pests covered by the contract.
Harwich has a lengthy maritime history and by the 17th century the town was home to a heavily protected naval base. By the 18th century, it was well-known for its port related enterprises, including commercial shipbuilding, and a number of wealthy merchants lived in the area. Today, Harwich International Port operates round the clock with commercial cargo arriving daily from as far afield as Northern Europe and North Africa. It also plays host to several passenger ships a week.
Despite its importance as a port town, Harwich has a relatively small population of around 15,000. Most of the old town is in a conservation area, and it has a number of buildings that originate from medieval times, although some of the exteriors were updated in the 18th century. As a result, the town features several ancient local landmarks including the 19th century built lighthouse, the 17th century Treadwheel Crane at Navyard, the Old Custom Houses on West Street, the 20th century Electric Palace Cinema and the Grade I listed Guildhall.
As a result, not all our call-outs relate to shipping container fumigation at the port, or targeting pests at commercial organisations. We also attend call-outs to domestic properties in the area, to deal with all sorts of pests including wasps, mice, rats and gulls.
