I started full time pest control many years ago with my business based primarily within the Preston area and throughout the pr postcode district, indeed my first website was concentrated on Pest Control in the Preston area- www.pestcontrolpreston.co.uk. This gave me plenty of opportunity to build my customer base and reputation as a quality, reliable and affordable pest control officer. It is due to the success of that website and business but also very much by word of mouth that I was able to expand my pest control business throughout Lancashire and offer more services in the Preston area.

Preston’s Pest Problems

There are many features of Preston that make certain pest problems more likely, in certain areas, for example, areas near or alongside the river Ribble are more likely to suffer from rodent infestations. Rodents and rats especially, are very much at home alongside rivers and canals. While town center areas are often affected by the modern day menace of the feral pigeon, though as numbers increase, pigeons become a problem over a wider and wider area. My father was, for a number of years, a pest controller for what was then British Rail, part of his job was to shoot the feral pigeon in Preston station, at night, after the last passenger had gone. That was over 30 years ago but pigeons still roost and feed around the station in larger numbers

I visit many restaurants and takeaways within Preston on a contract basis to keep Preston City Center pest free and give help and advice on how businesses can protect themselves and their profits from pests.

Rat Problems in Preston

I work with many residential customers that are being plagued by pests, with many call out for bedbugs and other insects such as ants and bees / wasps, but the most regular call out I get is for rodent control. At regular intervals rat populations build up in certain areas within Preston, if you are having problems with rats or mice then there is a good chance that I’m already working within your area to reduce this problem, meaning that coming to Ian Smith Pest Control gives you the best chance of having a complete rat/mouse control program covering your area and property with future proofing options available to help in the prevention of pest problems becoming an issue in the future. Last year (2012) the whole country was very quiet in terms of problems with wasps but for some reason Preston bucked that trend and I received many call outs in Preston City Center and also in the Ribbleton area of Preston.

I offer a full pest control service to all Preston PR post code areas.
