Pest control

If you are having a problem with pests you can arrange a visit, our officers have years of experience and are trained to a high standard. We work Monday to Friday and can treat and remove a variety of pests.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

To ensure the requirement for social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak is observed, pest control officers will no longer be able to carry out visits inside domestic or commercial properties.

Visits will still take place for pests outside of properties as social distancing can still be maintained. This is for the protection of both customers and officers.

If there are rats inside a property, officers may still be able to offer pest control treatment, subject to a risk assessment.

What if I don't know what pest it is?

You can request a survey and this will cost £25. If you have paid for a survey and then treatment is needed the cost of the survey is deducted from the cost. For example you have paid £25 for a survey for ants, treatment is required, so you would need to pay £40.
