Pest control

Our animal control officers regularly survey the district for evidence of public health pests, responding quickly to complaints and taking action where required. We provide competitive rates for dealing with most pests at residential and commercial premises.  We can also arrange for annual contracts for businesses - ask us for a quote.

We carry out all treatments as humanely as possible and we only use approved products.

To arrange an appointment with a Pest Control Officer please contact us on 01285 623000.
