All our staff have been risk assessed to enter properties. However, if you or a member of your household has had or currently has symptoms of COVID-19 we will not attend.  Also if anyone is isolating we are unable to attend.

Customers will be required to maintain social distancing of minimum 1 m away from our staff whilst they are in your premises.

On arrival if the pest control officer decides he doesn't need to carry out a treatment and only needs to offer advice, then we will charge £20.

We will then refund the rest of the fee you paid

A £10 discount is available to pensioners and people of certain benefits.

Please note: All treatments are carried out on a pre-pay basis only
