Our pest control services:


Moles (Talpa Europaea)

We have been catching moles for 15 years and are very experienced in the control of them. Moles do not hibernate, and eat two-thirds of their bodyweight every day. Moles can devastate a lawn and garden within days, and their elusive, subterranean lifestyle makes them very difficult to control. Contact our helpful team to arrange for mole control in the Devon area.

Rats and mice, while traditionally a problem of commercial outlets, such as restaurants and takeaways, are very dangerous for domestic property. Their instinct for gnawing and eating wiring insulation can sometimes cause electrical faults, and even fires. A nest of rodents in an attic space can be highly noisy and unsettling too, especially for children. Contact us, and we can perform a property survey and arrange a quote for rodent control in your home.

Wasps and Hornets

Autumn time is when you start to notice wasp and hornet nests. The nests will have been there since the spring, but it is towards September when they start to forage for themselves, not the collective hive. This is a natural event, which happens every year, only the queens will survive the winter to start the process over. We use powder with an air pressure system from a remote distance for safety. This can reach to a height of 10 metres from the ground which covers almost any situation. Please do not ask us to work from ladders – we recommend not to do this, even if you have a beekeeping suit.

We do not remove bees, but if you have a honeybee swarm, we recommend you contact a local beekeeper.

Biological control

This involves releasing bugs to eat other bugs. It is eco-friendly, releasing natural predators such as ladybirds to kill aphids and smaller bug pests. We offer a wide range of biological controls, including nematodes that can be used to control a variety of unwanted garden pests such as leather jackets, chafer grubs, vine weevils and slugs. We can supply and apply these controls to your garden which are a pet friendly, Natural England safe product to use.

Japanese knotweed (Reynoutria japonica)

At Devon Wildlife Management, we are specialists in controlling Japanese knotweed. As this plant is notoriously resilient, this work requires a site survey, and usually entails repeat visits over the course of a few seasons to ensure the problem does not recur. As experts in Japanese knotweed removal in Plymouth, we can inject a weed killer directly into the stem of the knotweed, and this results in the plant dying throughout its system.
