Once payment has been received one of our pest control officers will endeavour to call on the same day or before 09:00 the next working day to book an appointment. Treatments for vermin or insects coming into your premises can only be undertaken on your land. We cannot go onto your neighbour's land without their permission.

We do not treat bees for environmental reasons. If you experience a swarm of honey bees at your property please contact Stratford-upon-Avon Beekeepers Association who can safely remove them. Please note that the Stratford-upon-Avon Beekeepers Association cannot remove bumble bees.

If you require flea or bedbug treatment, please refer to the attached pre-treatment guidance to prepare you for your pest control visit.

Commercial Pest Control Treatments

Charges for commercial premises are generally consistent with those for domestic premises. However, for a particularly large premises, you will be quoted individually.

Pest Control Contracts

We offer pest control contracts for farms, commercial premises and large warehouses. This service only covers the treatment of rats and mice. Prices start at £495 + VAT for 10 visits per year. The 10 regular visits are carried out between September and June each year to check and lay bait as necessary to ensure you are infestation free. If a problem develops you can call us and we will visit and deal with it without a charge. We do offer contracts for 12 visits per year but these are charged at a higher rate.

The basic £495 + VAT contract is normally suitable for shops, small warehouses and small- to medium-sized farms.
