Pest control in Kent

Mole hole field

Based in Sevenoaks, we offer pest control to domestic and commercial clients in the surrounding towns and villages including Tonbridge, Hildenborough, Borough Green, Sundridge and Otford.

We specialise in the control of countryside pests, particularly in semi- rural areas including rabbits, moles, squirrels, foxes and deer. These mammals can become a problem when living near to residential properties or farms damaging property and threatening other wildlife. Effective management can reduce numbers or reduce the problem altogether, depending on the desired outcome.

How we do it

We use two main methods for controlling pests where appropriate and safe:


We use humane, industry standard quick-kill traps for the control of small mammals but, where practical, may be able to use "live catch" traps to relocate the animal to another area if this is of particular concern to a client.


A fast, humane way to stop problem pests. We are authorised by Kent Police Firearms Licencing department for the shooting and destruction of pests under the General Licence.

We don’t use poisons which can cause a slow and painful death and harm other animals when entering the food chain.
Through a process of trapping and shooting we can accurately track numbers and ensure persistent pests are removed from your property.

Pest control services

We provide pest control services near Sevenoaks in Kent covering the following animals:

Moles can dig vast tunnel networks in a relatively short space of time.

As well as leaving holes across a garden or field, excavated material can leave the ground unstable, causing localised subsidence and making ground unlevel. This is can be a particular problem on golf courses, vegetable patches and lawns where well drained soil makes an ideal substrate for digging.

Fast action is important to halt the damage being carried out and prevent additional moles taking up residence. If you start to see mole hills appearing, contact us so that swift action can be taken. Once the mole problem has been dealt with, tunnels can be filled and the ground repaired to avoid personal injury and prevent other moles using the tunnels.

Squirrels can be playful in the garden climbing trees, however like other rodents, if they move inside the home looking for warmth and shelter they can cause significant problems.

Squirrels find gaps and weaknesses in soffits to make their way into roof spaces. Once inside they can cause damage to the building structure, chewing timber beams, moving insulation and biting through wiring which can increase the risk of fire. As well as physical damage, due to their speed and size, the noise made as they make their way through a loft space can be considerable and make homeowners feel uncomfortable.

Once squirrels have been trapped and their nests have been removed, the access points should be secured to prevent any reoccurrence.

Rabbits can be a cute garden visitor, but if you are seeing large numbers it may be time to bring the population under control.

Rabbits eat a wide range of greenery and can be problem in gardens and allotments, eating plants and vegetables. Their large sharp teeth also allow them to chew through pipes, bushes and electrical cables.

Rabbits are crepuscular meaning they are most active at twilight - early in the morning at sunrise and late in the evening at sunset. Rabbits themselves are fairly clean animals but they can still spread disease such as myxomatosis and VHD which can pass to domestic rabbits.

Rabbits quickly breed in large numbers so it can be unrealistic to completely eliminate a population, but regular control measures will help to keep their numbers down to a manageable level. Mitigations like rabbit proof fencing should be used to protect vulnerable spaces in addition to limiting numbers to minimise disruption.

With housing encroaching into the countryside and abundant food sources, foxes have become common in urban areas and whilst they will generally avoid humans, some are becoming bolder and not deterred due to feeding and urban habitats.

Fox in garden

Foxes can be nuisance raiding bins and marking territory. In mating season their loud shrieking call can be loud at night, disrupting sleep. Foxes are natural hunters and are ruthless when it comes to household pets such as rabbits and livestock such as chickens. In the countryside setting foxes can be a persistent predator to livestock, targeting farm animals and causing unnecessary stress.

Following the removal of a fox, any food sources should be protected or removed to make it unattractive for new foxes to move in.

Without natural predators, deer populations grow year on year. This puts a strain on the environment they live in damaging woodland and forcing deer to find new pastures.

Deer in open field

As well stripping bark from trees, landowners can find crops and hedgerows destroyed. As deer migrate, crossing roads and drive ways they can cause significant damage in collisions with cars and other road users.

Culling deer to control numbers is important to ensure appropriate management of wild habitats and protect farmed land.
