Pest control

We employ professional Pest Control Officers to help you with pests that are a risk to public health or food safety.

We charge where a visit is made but advice is free:

Commonly dealt with pests include:

  • rats
  • mice
  • ants
  • fleas
  • wasps
  • cockroaches
  • bedbugs

Cost

There is a one-off payment (including VAT) for each treatment and this also covers a follow-up visit if required:

  • Ants and wasps - £45
  • Rats and mice: £65
  • Fleas, bedbugs and other insects - £75
  • Other pests - price subject to survey

Payment is taken in advance of a visit either over the phone or at one of our Customer Service Centres. The charge is not refundable.

We also offer competitively priced commercial contracts, call 030 33 33 300 for further information.

Things to consider

  • Bees are generally beneficial in the garden and we won't treat bees unless they pose a serious risk to householders.
  • Bats are a protected species and must not be harmed. The Bat Conservation Trust can help you with advice if you find a bat.
  • Contact us if gulls are a nuisance.
  • Let us know about any pets or young children. The poisons we use for insects pose little risk to humans but the poisons used for rats and mice may affect other mammals.
