Pest Control Services

We provide discreet and professional services to control a wide range of pests including:

  •  Rats
  •  Mice
  •  Ants
  •  Fleas     
  • Cockroaches
  • Wasps
  • Bedbugs
  • Cluster Flies

The Pest Control service is provided by two full-time operatives who are employed to carry out a variety of pest control treatments.

There is a charge for all Pest Control treatments. A concession of 50% of the standard charge is available to residents who are 65 or over and in receipt of Housing or Council Tax Benefit. We require payment before a visit is made. When payment is received we will endeavour to visit you within five working days, but often much sooner. If you would like to arrange a pest control treatment please contact us.

Payment must be made in advance. Please note there is a 2% surcharge on all payments made by credit card.

Regular treatments are carried out in public areas for rats, mice and pigeons.

The demand for the pest control service fluctuates throughout the year. The summer period is extremely busy with numerous requests to treat wasps. Complaints about rats and mice also increase in the warmer months. A combination of mass tourism and takeaway food/picnics provides an easy food supply for rodents. Please put all litter in the bins provided or take it home.

We  also provide advice on vermin-related public health matters and the  council has statutory powers to deal with situations in domestic, commercial and public environments.
