Pest Control for Housing Associations

London & throughout the UK

Shield Pest Control UK Limited is an industry-leading service provider for housing associations. Our services include pest control of birds, insects, rodents and larger mammals.
We have over 40 years’ experience of providing pest control services on behalf of housing associations in London and throughout the UK.
Shield Pest Control already manages pest control contracts for more than one large UK Housing Association. In the UK, the rules and regulations regarding pest management will differ from one property to the next. This will also be influenced by the relevant local laws, local council housing regulations and previous experiences of the property managers, among other factors. However, the importance of maintaining pest free environments in Housing Association properties is highlighted by the LARES survey, carried out by the World Health Organization out a in 2002; this looked at the relationship between health and housing.
One key finding of the survey is that there is a clear association between pest infested premises and allergies & asthma. It also provided clear evidence that people are more likely to suffer from migraine, headaches and depression if they live in pest infested homes.

Working tirelessly and efficiently on our clients behalf, Shield Pest Control has helped housing associations avoid any potential non-conformance issues – especially when audits are undertaken.

As members of The British Pest Control Association (BPCA), our operatives are fully trained to their rigorous standards.
Our commitment to health and safety is second to none and we operate in accordance with the following requirements:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The COSHH Regulations 2002 are regulations applied under this Act.
  • The Food and Environmental Protection Act 1985. The COPR are regulations applied under this Act.
  • Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981
  • Pest Act 1954. The Spring Trap Approval Order is applied under this Act. There is an exemption from this order (1958) for break back and mole traps.

Shield Pest Control aims to be at the forefront of good practice and has invested in team development and technology. We appreciate that commercial cleaning companies depend on clear information and 24/7 reporting. Our company has developed an advanced electronic reporting management system, which offers real time online access to reports including images.

The presence of pests in housing association properties can lead to a considerable risk to public health. Whether flies, insects, rodents or other vermin, these need to be dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible, before the problem escalates amongst adjoining properties.

Therefore it is vital that Housing Associations have a full Pest control strategy in place, using a reputable and experienced company like Shield Pest Control.
