Dealing with pests

Pests can be a nuisance, a risk to health and safety, and damage your home.

We can offer advice on dealing with some common household pests yourself.

And our pest control service will undertake treatments for ants, bedbugs, beetles, cluster flies, cockroaches, earwigs, fleas, mice inside the home, moles, moths, rats, silverfish, slugs and snails, wasps, and woodlice, in domestic and commercial premises.

Standard treatment consists of three visits to treat rats and mice at an average domestic property, including:

  • Inspection and baiting or trapping
  • Further follow-up visit to replenish bait as required
  • Final visit to remove bait/traps
