As well as issues with rats, mice, bats, grey squirrels and feral pigeons, our experienced pest control team can offer advice on a range of insect infestations including ants, bees, bedbugs, biscuit beetles, carpet beetles, cockroaches, fleas, mites, silverfish and wasps.

The team can:

  • help identify the particular animal or insect
  • arrange for a treatment to be carried out
  • advise on what steps to take to resolve a problem.

All telephone advice is given free of charge and we aim to offer you an appointment within 48 hours.

We are happy to visit you at home and give you advice about your pest problem. The cost of home advice visits is £20 (no concessions).
