Pest control wanted, Hampshire/Wiltshire/Somerset/Dorset


New Member
Hi everyone,

I am looking for some pest control in Hampshire or Wiltshire areas. I am a mid 40's serving police officer, with open SGC/FAC, DSC 1 (DSC2 should be completed end Feb 18), fully insured with BASC, 23 years previous Army background and I can offer a trusted and reliable service for whatever is required with travelling not being an issue.

I can use a moderated air rifle for rats/pigeon in and around the farm buildings, either during the day or with night vision during the hours of darkness. A moderated .22 rimfire for rabbits, again with NV, day or night. Can also decoy for pigeon or crows using either moderated .410 or 12g, fox control under lamp or NV and can also offer a deer management plan on all species of deer using a .243.

I am happy to discuss all requirements beforehand and respect all boundaries. If I can be of help then please send me a private message on here and I will reply with contact details. Thank you for your time.
