We have been and remain, a family run business for over 68 years now.

Established in 1947, the Company’s name Edwards derives from the founder, Norman Albert William Edwards, who became a pioneer in the control of feral pigeons and sparrows in the 1950s and 1960s.

His son, Kim Edwards began his career back in the 1970s. Now the proprietor of the company, he has pioneered a non-toxic approach to pest control management with non-toxic trapping systems for rodents.

As a designer of covert bait stations for rodents and humane traps for Sparrows and Starlings. Mr Edwards has been interviewed by The Sunday Times, The Daily Express, The Daily Mirror, The Guardian and Local Press.

Kim has also appeared in documentaries on National Geographic, BBC1, ITV, Channel Five, Channel Four and BBC Choice and has been a guest speaker on Radio Four, Radio Five and London Radio.

As advisors to food manufacturers and food storage companies, Edwards Pest Control holds Royal Society for the Promotion of Health Certificates and are members of the National Pest Technicians Association.

We offer national coverage for pest control services and bird prevention and control systems along with humane trapping of bird nuisance in food storage production areas and general warehousing situations and can adapt all techniques for any situation.

We offer a rapid response with a free audit including a written survey report and recommendations to solve and monitor your problems.

About Us - Some History

Back in 1967, a story that had the country gripped and waiting for an outcome, was that of a Monkey called Bimbo that had been on the loose in a cargo terminal at Heathrow Airport for some time. After 204 days, the Monkey was captured on 3rd March by Norman Edwards and colleagues from Edwards Pest Control. As far as we are aware, we are the only pest control company to ever carry out this type of operation! See the full story here.... Bimbo Story ...and see the movie on You Tube .... here!

Whereas other companies may poison to eliminate rodent infestaton, that may only serve to be useful for a short period before the problem returns via the same route it had come from originally.

We tackle the issue by tracking where the problem has originated from by performing a full survey and assessment. By doing this we can find the entry points which we can then seal and cap, thus preventing further entry, removing the problem and preventing re-infestation.
