Oxford Street in London is the busiest road in Europe, with 300 shops and millions of tourists, visitors and Londoners using the street every year. So much is packed into this 1.5 miles of street that it is hard to imagine how it copes on a day to day basis.
All these people, the rubbish and so on that accumulates when people congregate in one area, along with the Tube station can make it a hot bed for pests.
Pests are insects, birds and animals that are unwanted in an area. Anything from rats in the Underground, to urban foxes rummaging through the bins at night, to the pigeons that fly overhead, there are all kinds of pests.
Some pests will never be completely eradicated and neither should some be – the humble bee, for example, despite its size, plays a huge part in the local ecology. Other pests although they cannot be eradicated, must be controlled for the health and safety of the general public.
I am Spencer Willmott and I am part of West London Pest Control. As a professional pest controller living and working in the Oxford Street and W1C area, I can respond quickly to call for help with any kind of pest.
What to look for in a professional pest control technician
- Qualifications – I hold the industry standard qualification, the level 2 in ‘Pest Control & Management’ awarded by the Royal Society of Public Health. This comprehensive qualification has a high pass rate that must be achieved in order to gain the qualification.
- Specialist – I hold a variety of additional qualifications too, such as specialist courses relating to specific pests and situations. I have been trained in working in enclosed places, through Confined Space Training. Safety is paramount, especially in high foot fall areas such as Oxford Street and thus I am qualified in health & safety through the National Examining Board in Occupational Safety & Health. I am also first air trained, water rescued trained and have also completed course in manual handling.
- Experience – With many years’ in pest control, I also bring a wealth of abilities and skills from previous employment. After many years in the Army, followed by the Fire & Rescue Service I understand the need to respond quickly, but calmly to pest control ‘emergencies’.
- Professionalism – look for public liability insurance, along with guarantees and so on. Again, we part of West London Pest Control, this is offered as standard to domestic and business customers within W1C.
A discreet and responsive pest control service
However, I also appreciate that many customers, both businesses and domestic, need not only an immediate response but a discreet one too.
Not only do I not announce my arrival on the street, I also go about the assessment of the problem, along with any treatment or solutions in a way that does not attract attention, nor present any offence or issues to the general public, employees and so on.
All pest control treatments must be humane and every solution is safe for use in high foot fall areas.
Do you have a pest control issue? Are you under siege from a pest? If so, call me for a fast response.
