Pest Control Charges

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, all cases are being assessed by a Pest Control Officer before determining whether a treatment can be safely offered.  Treatments can normally be conducted in gardens and other outside spaces safely but we are unable to conduct treatments inside people’s homes in most cases.  Telephone advice will continue to be offered free of charge in all cases.  If you require any further information please phone Customer Services on 01264 368000 or 01794 527700.

A summary of our charges for assessment and treatment visits are given below. Separate charges apply to domestic and commercial customers. When referring to our charges, please see also our terms and conditions for providing these pest control services.
