Rats & Mice

Rats & mice are all around us but when they start to invade our homes, bins & communal areas, our aim to provide a rapid solution. Rats & mice are fast, efficient breeding machines & numbers can soon spiral out of control if not dealt with effectively.



Moles, known as the velvet gentlemen, are an example of what happens when there is urban sprawl. Moles make their homes in tunnels under our lawns, sports fields etc & can quickly wreak havoc to your lovely garden. A professional trapping programme is a fast & effective solution to the problem.



Squirrels are probably the most destructive rodents that may enter your property, causing great damage to electrical cables, pipe work & timber. Again, a trapping & proofing programme is the best way to eradicate this problem.


Wasps & Bees

Wasps & bees understandably are a nuisance to many people & their numbers are predicted to increase in the next few years, due to recent weather patterns. Many people mistakenly believe that bees are protected in the U.K. This is not the case, but due to them being an essential ingredient within the ecological balance, we will rehome them whenever possible. Wasps, on the other hand are a nuisance that can deliver a nasty sting in their effort to defend the nest. Treatment is not only fast & simple but far cheaper than you might think.



Fleas are also a common problem that can often make customers embarrassed to seek help. There is no cause for concern as fleas are mostly introduced into our homes by our pets. We know only too well how difficult it is to prevent fleas in the first place. Warmer winters & the incorrect use of flea prevention treatments means that fleas, once introduced into our warm homes, make themselves at home very quickly. We use professional grade insecticide that is safe to use in & around the home, presenting no danger to pets or children. Pets will need treating correctly with flea products also.



Birds can be a real nuisance both in public areas and in gardens and are commonly known for spreading disease and being a pest. Birds can often build nests in derelict buildings, ledges and roof tops. The most commons birds to be know as pest are pigeons and gulls. These type of birds leave an large amount of bird droppings which not only add to your cleaning costs of your commercial or residential property but also those droppings bring diseases and mites which bring serous health implications.


  • I recently had a problem with mice - this was something I'd never experienced before and believed you put a trap down with a piece of cheese to catch 'em! ? Seriously though from the minute Mark arrived his service was amazing. Friendly and professional from start to finish. He fully and clearly explained the process he would go through to solve the issue. He not only inspected inside but outside too to investigate their source of entry. He revisited on several occasions to check everything and the progress of his work until he was satisfied the mice had gone and always left things neat and tidy too. If you are looking for a friendly, professional, thorough pest control service I can truly say I would recommend him to anyone!
  • Thanks so much for coming round this morning, so quickly after we spoke and particularly given the current restrictions (Corona). Whilst the confirmation its only bats was a relief, the fact you didn’t charge was extremely kind. I’ll certainly let you know if there is a need in future and pass your name on for any recommendations. - Many thanks, Robin
  • Hi Mark" wanted to post a review but thought I would email instead to say thank you for the great service you gave me and mum recently. We had an annoying mole problem which was especially heartbreaking as the lawn had been newly laid. Nothing was too much trouble and you visited repeatedly until the problem was resolved. You even secured a broken fence panel which you noticesd during one of your visits. Service above and beyond!! Thank you and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you so please feel free to post this review. Enjoyed the company of Aggie too !!

    Dear Mark, Thank you for sorting out the wasps nest at my parents house on Friday evening. We were very impressed by your quick response and the way in which you dealt with the problem. You even called the next day to ensure evreything was ok. You were extremely efficient and polite. After dusting the wasps nest, you made sure the surrounding area was completely clean of dust. We will recommend you to friends and neighbours and also where I work. Thanks again. Kind regards, June

    Dear Mark & Hudson, Just to say thank you for you help! "Fantastic, speedy service. With us within two hours! Wasps all gone in one treatment. Very professional and very reasonable. Many Thanks!" (If you need to state a name please can you list as Stoneyhills rather than my name - thanks) Kind Regards, Anne

    Good morning Mark Just to say a very big thank you for coming to Ashwell last week to assist us with our wasp infestation It was great to meet you and your very handsome dog, Hudson. We were so impressed with not only the speed with which you responded to our emailed request for help, but how quickly you were able to fit us into to your diary for a visit the next day. It was fascinating to hear about how the wasps would behave, and you looked like a White Knight in your protective clothing! You were kind enough to come again to visit us two days later, when we realised that there was a further nest, which was in addition to the three you had already dealt with, at no extra charge. Thanks again, for excellent service, and the chance to meet a very beautiful and well behaved Hudson, who just seems to take it all in his stride Warm regards Joan Yates

    My business involves members of the public and therefore it was incredibly important that Hudson Pest Control worked covertly and behind the scenes in insuring that we dealt with our rat infestation rapidly and discreetly. We found Mark a pleasure to deal with, extremely polite and eager to help immediately in emergency situations. The service provided was carried out efficiently and was extremely competitively priced. We would not hesitate in recommending Mark and his company to anyone who wants rid of the unwanted! A true professional.

    I felt I needed to express my gratitude regarding the above pest controller. He was extremely helpful and informative regarding my mice problem. His communication before, during and after care was 100%. I would not have any issues passing Marks details onto anyone who was in need of pest control. Professional at all times but always making sure the customer was updated in all aspects of work carried out.  Thanks Mark for your great customer care and a job well done... Excellent!!! Best regards, Sue Elleston Lafferty - Hitchin

    We were hugely impressed with Hudson's Pest Control. Mark helped us to eradicate some unwelcome furry visitors who took up residence in our kitchen whilst we were away on holiday and deal with a colony of feral honey bees in our chimney. He is extremely professional, friendly, knowledgable and very reliable. His no nonsense approach gave us reassurance that our problems would be dealt with as quickly as possible. Mark had it all under control, visiting us regularly until he was confident that the issues were dealt with. I wouldn't hesitate to use Mark again or to recommend his services to anyone else. Very refreshing to find such an exceptional level of service! Thanks again Mark Kirsty and Dan Berryman

    After finally being stung last summer by a determined wasp, Mark dealt quite brilliantly with this hysterical woman on the end of his phone. We were visited the very next morning, where we stable our ponies. The nest was located in seconds, the little.......! were zapped. Problem solved. So this year without hesitation i knew who to ring, Mark arrived that same day with Hudson. Eventually after zapping three wasp nests the whole family including baby grandson plus the ponies can enjoy the rest of the summer safely The ponies have plenty of grass now, without a hole insight to fall down, as Mark now, controls our once out of control rabbit population as well. Fantastic, so efficient, a real genuine guy, who is so obviously passionate about what he does, which is key when it comes to dealing with such an important heroic job. Thanks a million Jane, Jamie, Jadey, Freddy, Berty & Tilly-Rose.

    It's always a worry when you need the help of a friendly professional to do the job right ... This is the second time I've had to call on MARK ? for his services ... No other PEST CONTROL guy would have the same warm, kind & customer friendly approach ??? I really cannot express what a courteous bloke he is. We had a naughty scratcher ??? in the loft, so with Marks expertise & knowledge and regular follow up visits we are pest free! ?????? If I ever need any further PEST advise, help or work done at a competitive rate & excellent customer care, he would definitely be the one I would call ☎️☎️☎️ A true ????? rating!!! With thanks again , Sue (Hitchin)

    Mark was a life saviour. As anyone who has had any activity of rats in their house will know, it is a horrible feeling and you want to get rid of them as quickly as possible. We phoned the council first and they put bait down for 2 weeks but had to remove it after that due to health and safety, nothing was taken in that time so we assumed they had gone. Little did we know it would take a great deal of patience and careful monitoring by Mark to eventually get rid of them! Mark was a complete star and made sure that every possible nook and cranny was checked. His knowledge of the pests is huge and he knows that in order to do a good job you need to sit tight and wait until they have taken the bait. He made frequent visits and did not leave until the job was done. I would definitely recommend using Mark if you never want to have the problem again.

    I have great respect for people who do their jobs well! Mark Pillinger is most definitely one of these people! It was shocking and upsetting to hear that ominous scratching on the ceiling above our heads! However Mark's service was excellent from beginning to end. He wasted no time once I contacted him. He arrived,communicated with us in a gentle, reassuring and confident manner, investigated our loft, found the sure signs of our unwelcome invader(s),checked for any key entry points outdoors and within the house, placed necessary ingredients strategically to trap them and then left agreeing to keep in touch with me and return to check. He returned regularly until all was happily silent for a few weeks.I would not hesitate to contact Mark in such circumstances again. We highly recommend him!

    We just wanted to write to thank you for all your help. What started as a quick visit to help identify tiny bugs falling through our bathroom light fittings turned into a fairly lengthy mouse hunt that we had not anticipated but were very glad that you were here to help us resolve. Your calm approach was always reassuring and we knew you had the job under control from the beginning. Your honesty and reliability, following up every week or two with calls and visits and keeping us informed every step of the way were also greatly appreciated as well as your knowledge, advice and your willingness to answer any question we had. Thank you also for blocking up the possible entry points for the mice. Your level of service exceeded our expectations and we will not hesitate to recommend you to friends or anyone we know who needs your help. It was really nice to meet you (and the lovely Hudson!) and we wish you the best of luck in the future. In the nicest possible way we hope we won't need your help again but will not hesitate to call if we ever have any more unwanted visitors!

    An excellent service, Mark was so thorough and reassuring in regards to our rat infestation, we cannot recommend him highly enough. Always available (even on a Saturday evening at 7pm!!), always friendly and always did what he said he would do, on time and with no fuss, Mark provided a service level that we have not experienced before across any service industry. If we ever have any more pest problems, Mark will be the first person we call and if Mark is in town for a beer, I would gladly take him to the local as he has become more of a friend than a service provider. Have a great New Year, and if ever you fancy a pint in Hitchin, drop me a text and I would be glad to buy you a couple as you truly have provided us with a first class service.
