Series following four female pest controllers as they do battle with Britain's most common household pests. Infestations of bed bugs, rats, clothes moths and more are making life a misery in homes across the UK. The ladykillers use specialist cameras to provide a scary close-up of the pests for the homeowners and to help find the best way to get rid of these unwelcome intruders.

A family facing the nightly terror of a bed-bug infestation calls in Imogen, who takes a scientific approach to pest control. Her research reveals what is making the modern bed bug a tougher menace to control than ever before, and she comes up with an ingenious solution to rid the long-suffering family of their parasitic intruders.

Elsewhere a case of rats in a smart suburban street leads Deborah on a hunt to find whose garden is harbouring the pests, with surprising results. And a city farm has double trouble with pigeons and rats.
