Telephone advice is given free of charge, but if you need a visit we aim to offer you an appointment within 48 hours. Contact us to find out more.


Why treat pest problems?

Pests can be a nuisance, but they can cause serious problems too. If a pest isn't treated it could:

  • spread disease and contaminate your home or workplace
  • damage your possessions, property and foodstuffs 
  • cause an infestation in your neighbours' properties 

Not only could this cost you a lot of money, it could cause a public health problem.

Whether you are a homeowner, a tenant or a business, it is your responsibility to make sure that pest problems are treated.


Home advice visits

We can visit you at home and give you advice about your pest problem. Home advice visits cost £20 with no obligation to book a treatment. If you decide to book a pest control treatment with us, the home visit charge is included in the treatment price.

We can treat bedbugs, cockroaches, fleas, rats and wasps. We also treat mice and ants that are inside your home.

Our officers can let you know what to do about other pest problems such as bats, grey squirrels, feral pigeons, bedbugs, bees, biscuit beetles, carpet beetles, mites, and silverfish. They can also advise on how to deal with mice or ant problems that are outdoors.

We can treat the following problems, and offer a reduced concession price if you receive Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support (there is no concession reduction on the cost of home advice visits). All prices include VAT.

In the rare event that we can't identify an insect, we will send the specimen to a special laboratory for identification on your behalf.
