Peter Cherry

Peter was born in Christchurch and grew up in Burley. Educated at Chafyn Grove and then Sherborne followed by Bradford University he has lived and worked extensively not only throughout the United Kingdom but also in the Middle and Far East and more recently, South Africa. Peter returned to the New Forest to run Pests Birds and Bugs Limited.

A Biology graduate with a wide range of interests, he now lives with his wife Elzabe and two Labradors in a farmhouse on the edge of the New Forest.

“I believe that customers want professionalism, punctuality and politeness – combined with understanding, reassurance and a good sense of humour!”

Elzabe Kirsten

Born in Vereeniging in South Africa, Elzabe grew up in the farming and forestry community in Barberton on the Lowveld before moving to Cape Town after studying at the University of Pretoria.

She met Peter in 2000 shortly after moving to Johannesburg, and married him in 2009. In 2016 Peter and Elzabe decided to return to the New Forest with their two Labrador dogs and work with Pests Birds and Bugs Limited, an already established family business.

Elzabe has wide-ranging interests in country sports, especially game fishing and country walking. This love of the outdoors and of rural England leads Elzabe to appreciate the need for effective pest control and management solutions.

Modern Pest Control

At Pests, Birds and Bugs Limited, we believe in using pest eradication and control methods that work but that don’t damage the environment. We work within strict regulations and laws that govern the use of pesticides and other control methods.

We only use appropriate treatments and solutions, safeguarding non-target species and protecting the local environment.

Everything we do protects the natural habitat local ecosystem. From time to time, our habits, the weather, the built environment and human activities appeal to pests, luring them into sharing or impacting on our properties and activities.

When this is the case, you need an expert team, strong in abilities, skills and knowledge. When you meet the team, you will understand why you need their expert advice and tailored pest control solutions.

Ground Bees

Wasp removal testimonial. I called to have someone come and remove either bees or wasps flying out of a hole in the ground this spring.  It was like Heathrow’s main runway and as we have three small children and a dog we very concerned. They arrived right on time in smart van and identified them as bumble bees that often inhabit old rodent burrows. I was astounded that Mr Cherry was able to smoke the bees and MOVE them to a safe location in the New Forest. We are safe and the bees are safe. I would highly recommend this company.
