Whatever your pest, we have a service that can get rid of them for you. Ask about your particular needs.
Mice and Rats
Rats and mice bring disease, and damage property and stock, so many businesses and homeowners call on us for prevention, monitoring and treatment of rat and mouse infestations.
Perish-A-Pest offers a full professional rat and mouse control service across Cornwall, to ensure that the rodents are removed, and offer advice to help ensure that they don’t come back.
We use a humane poison that kills the mouse or rat quickly, and painlessly, and has minimal impact on other creatures which may eat the poisoned vermin. See our FAQs page for more information about secondary poisoning.
** In stables and farm premises, rodents are almost inevitable. Talk to us about our regular contract service for maintaining low rodent populations in your agricultural property**
Insects and Creepy Crawlies
Bed-bugs, cockroaches, spiders, fleas, beetles, weevils or other insects can make your living or working space uncomfortable, unsanitary and very unpleasant to be in!
Perish-A-pest offers appropriate services to deal with all types of creepy crawlies, across Cornwall, including pesticide-free and insecticide-free options.
We also offer pest-monitoring services and regular contracts, and prevention advice, to help ensure that your home, business or farm remains clear of infestations.

Flies are a menace, bringing their germy feet and mouths around your food and work surfaces, spreading disease.
Perish-A-Pest offers a variety of fly-removal services, including electronic fly-killers for ongoing nuisance flies, and one-off fogging treatments, for infestations. These are especially effective for treating flies in thatched roofs. Other options are available, depending on the size of your premises, and the scale of the fly problem.
**Talk to us about reliable ways to keep the flies away from your professional kitchen**
Bees, Wasps & Hornets
Most people dislike buzzy yellow-and-black stripy insects, but bees, wasps and hornets are very different from each other, and have to be handled differently.
Wasps and hornets can pose a danger to humans, so Perish-A-Pest offers a wasp removal service that destroys them, and their nests.
Bees are docile, and an essential part of the food chain, pollinating the plants and flowers. Several of the UK’s species of bee are endangered, and we will work hard to rehome bees which are building an inappropriately placed hive. We have a good working relationship with local beekeepers, and will do our best to avoid killing bees. Please be patient with us, as this can take longer than simply destroying them.
**Talk to us about rehoming bees safely**
We are one of few mole-removal services in Cornwall, helping get the adorable-looking little burrowers out of your prized lawns and flower beds. Moles create burrows through the soil, killing plants, and creating their characteristic molehills wherever they go, and can make a real mess!
We use traditional trapping methods to capture the moles from your garden, which work instantly, and painlessly, and are not dangerous to other animals.
**Talk to us about prevention advice for moles**
Germs & Viruses
COVID-19 has taught us to be a lot more careful about bugs and things you can’t see, as much as things that you can see.
Perish-A-Pest offers fogging treatments that will remove viruses and bacteria from entire rooms, including hard surfaces, carpets, curtains, furniture and soft furnishings. It is also very effective for offices, toilets and washrooms.
We use a bleach-free, non-hazardous and non-toxic virucidal cleaner that meets BS EN 14476 and BS EN 13675, so you can be sure that only the germs will be harmed.
**Talk to us about how we can help keep the space you live or work in germ free**
We are one of few pest control companies in Cornwall qualified to use Aluminium Phosphide.
This is a highly toxic poison that is only used for extreme infestations of vertebrates such as rats, moles or rabbits.
It is a controlled substance and requires an exclusion zone, and full protective clothing. We will discuss the details with you, if we feel this is the best solution for your pest problem.
**Talk to us about large-scale vertebrate infestations**
Please talk to Perish-A-Pest about other pest-related issues that you have. We will work with you to eradicate your pest problem appropriately, and discretely, where that is important. We are happy to advise on pest-proofing services, but will refer to other trades-people to carry this out.
We are well-connected in the industry, and can often link with other tradespeople, such as specialist wood-worm services, local handy-man services to carry out pest-proofing work that is beyond our scope, and for geographical areas that we do not cover.
