Insect & Bug Control Service

Insects are a very common pest that can range from a simple nuisance to a major health hazard. Insects can spread disease, bite or sting and swarm in your home or business, causing you distress. Wasps are especially aggressive in the summer and can create nests near your business. No matter what type of insect infestation you are dealing with, we can provide you with expert advice and treatment to keep your home or business pest-free. 

Our pest control experts have over 30 years’ experience dealing with every type of pest and have the expertise to provide you with a high-quality service that quickly and effectively deals with your pest problem. We work with commercial clients across the North of England from Manchester to Leeds and everywhere in between. In addition, we can provide a domestic pest control service in York and the surrounding areas. 

Here at VermEx, we are very experienced in dealing with different types of insect infestations, from wasp nests on your grounds to a bed bug infestation in your hotel. Our BPCA qualified technicians can provide you with a discreet and effective insect treatment plan that is tailored to your situation for the best results, regardless of your pest problem. We understand that you don’t want a repeat infestation, which is why we always recommend getting professional help to ensure the job is done right. 

If you notice any of the signs of an insect infestation, such as bite marks on your skin, your pet scratching its fur or swarms of flies or wasps in your home or business, then contact VermEx today by phone on 01904 798676, by email at or by using our contact form to for expert advice or to receive a free, no-obligation quote to remove your insect control problem.

    Bed bugs are a very irritating and persistent pest that can prove particularly difficult to eradicate. Bed bugs lurk in the crevices of your mattress and bed frames and emerge at night to feed on the blood of their sleeping hosts, you! The first sign of a bed bug infestation is waking up with bites on your arms, legs and body. If you’ve noticed bites appearing on your skin or droplets of blood on your bedding, you may have a bedbug problem.

    Unfortunately, bed bug infestations are also on the rise in the UK. It is not recommended that you try treating bed bugs on your own, as treating bed bugs is a complex process and if not done thoroughly may lead to an infestation returning. Instead, make use of a professional pest control service to perform a very deep cleaning on the infected area to get rid of the problem for good. 

    Fleas are a common problem in UK homes, especially those with pets. The most common species of flea in the UK is the Cat Flea, which, unfortunately, also bites humans. As parasites, the biggest problem from fleas is their bites, which can affect both you and your pets and can result in an uncomfortable rash. If you notice your pet scratching or biting its fur, or you notice bites on your skin, then you may have a flea infestation. 

    If flea infestations are not treated properly and promptly, bedding, carpets and other soft furnishings can become affected. If fleas really take hold and become a problem, you may need a professional pest controller to get rid of them. If you have a flea problem, Contact VermEx today to discuss your individual requirements or request a free flea control quotation.

    Wasps are particularly hated, thanks to their aggressive nature and painful sting. In fact, wasps stings can even be life-threatening if you are allergic to stings. Wasps are often attracted by sweet food and drink. However, you can reduce the risk of wasp stings by taking sensible precautions when outdoors. Wasps’ nests on the other hand, can be a much more serious issue. 

    A single wasp’s nest can produce over 30,000 wasps a year which then become particularly aggressive during the summer months. If you have a wasp problem or a wasp nest at your business you should call in the experts to take care of it. You should never attempt to destroy or move a wasp nest yourself, as this can be dangerous. Instead, a professional wasp technician should be consulted to remove the wasps’ nest and install measures to prevent any further wasp infestations.  

    Flies, such as the house fly and bottle fly, are one of the most common pests that we experience and often infest our homes or businesses in the search for food and to breed their larvae. Flies pose a health risk to humans and can spread diseases like Salmonella and E. coli.

    Deterring and preventing fly infestations is often easier than removing them. There are a wide number of measures you can take to discourage flies, such as covering food, keeping the kitchen clean and keeping your bins sealed. If you do have a fly problem, there are a range of products available to help. However, if you have a larger or persistent infestation you may need the help of professional pest controllers. Contact VermEx today for help and expert advice for your insect control problem. 

    Ants are amazing creatures that live in highly-sophisticated communities. Ants are also highly adaptable and can survive in a wide range of living conditions, which also makes them a very persistent pest! Ants will travel a wide distance in the search for food and will follow a chemical trail and gather around a food source if they find it in your home or business. 

    In the UK the most common form of ants are the Garden Ant, Red Fire Ant and the Pharaoh Ant. While Garden Ants are relatively easy to deal with using a store-bought product, Red Fire or Pharaoh Ants may require professional attention to handle. Here at VermEx, we have the experience and expertise to take care of ant infestations to ensure they don’t return.
