Our domestic pest control service
If you are a housing association tenant, or are renting your property from a private landlord, we suggest that you contact them first. It may be a service that they may have already made provision to pay for.
Council tenants do not have to pay for most pest control services but will be asked to pay for fleas, moths and carpet beetles. If you are a council tenant please contact us to arrange an appointment.
Missed or cancelled appointment
If you need to cancel or re-arrange an appointment, please contact us at least 24 hours before the appointment time.
You will be charged the cost of an individual visit if:
- you cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment
- our officer calls and you are not at home
- any required preparatory work has not been completed
- we cannot do the work as expected for any reason due to the customer.
What makes treatment less effective
Factors that can make treatment less effective include:
- re-infestation from outside sources
- building defects
- failure to take preventative precautions or advice on good housekeeping practices
- weather conditions affecting outside treatments
Health and safety
We take all reasonable precautions to prevent any risk to health from pest control treatments. Our pest control officers are fully trained, qualified and experienced.
Before carrying out any treatment, we assess the risks of people or pets coming into contact with pesticide. We only lay bait in protected containers, clearly marked ‘POISON’ and we position these to minimise the risk of children or animals touching them.
We hand out safety information about the type of pesticide we use, and a safe procedure for disposing of dead rodents to minimise the risk of secondary poisoning of other animals.
In the case of rats and mice we revisit premises to check the effectiveness of the treatment and to collect unused pesticide.
