Being from the Bolton area I have been contracted to do many jobs in and around Bolton and the surrounding locality. I can arrive at your pest problem within the hour if requested. I normally use an un-marked car for all my domestic call-outs.  Also for businesses that would prefer the more discreet approach.

Bolton is my home area, indeed I would be sent all over Bolton on foot and by push bike. I even also went out on the bus to undertake pest control jobs as a teenager! My father did pest control in Bolton so I was often dispatched to check mole traps, mouse baits and insect monitors all over the place. When you cover an area for such a long time you begin to build up a picture of problem areas and how weather and seasons effect them.

For instance the area around Waters Meeting and The Valley Business Park will often seen an increase in rat activity when there is high rain fall. This is when rodents are pushed out of there river bank homes with rising water levels. At the current time (Autumn 22) the areas around Smithills and Deane are hot spot areas for rat issues. Though as the winter continues we will see pest issues increasing all across Bolton and the North West.

AREA PEST UPDATE-  Wasp  calls in Bolton have now slowed right down as winter creeps in. Its actually been our quietest summer ever for wasp calls. Rats continue to pose problems in Bolton town centre with Bradshawgate and Churchgate always a hot spot. Cluster flies are also causing issues for Bolton residents and these seem to be increasing year with some calls coming at un expected times of year.

– Its interesting to note that Bolton Council are now refused to undertake pest control calls inside peoples homes during the Covid period. Though this can be understood with the worrying Covid situation at times, it is important that pest controllers continue to operate as keyworkers.
