What happens after booking a treatment?

The Council aims to carry out all Pest Control Visits within 2 working days and you will be telephoned to arrange a suitable date to visit.

The Council's Pest Control Officer will visit between 9.00am and 16.00pm Monday to Friday. (Arrangements to visit will be made for AM or PM)

What is covered in the price for different pest types?

Rats/Mice
The charge covers up to 3 visits to deal with the current problem. If more than 3 visits are required a further payment will need to be made.  

The above charge includes an initial visit to determine and treat the problem, followed by 2 additional visits, if deemed necessary. On the final visit any remaining poison will be removed in accordance with the rodenticide stewardship scheme to protect wildlife and non-target species.

Wasps
The charge covers initial survey and treatment if required. One treatment is normally sufficient; however, if activity is still noted within 7 days of treatment then a subsequent treatment will be carried out free of charge. The nest will not be removed.

Bees: We do not treat for bees. 
If, however, a visit for wasps has been paid for and subsequently turns out to be bees advice will be given. The customer may be entitled to a 50% refund of the fee; this is to cover the call out cost and advice. Customers will be made aware of this at the time of booking.

Fleas/Carpet Beetles/
Providing guidance on treatment of pets and vacuuming of the property has been adhered too, the charge covers up to 2 spray treatments.

Prior to treatment the property needs to be thoroughly cleaned including vacuuming, the Pest Control Officer will advise as to when this should be done.

If additional treatment is required it will be necessary to book further treatment.

The charge covers you for two full treatments of all sleeping areas in the property. The second visit should be carried out 2 weeks from the first. Householders must follow advice given in order for treatment to be effective.

Cancelling your appointment.

We have a limited number of Pest Control Officer and they will try their hardest to keep their appointments with you - we would be grateful if you would do the same.

Missed appointments

If you miss an agreed pest control appointment a calling card will be left at your property. If you are scheduled for multiple visit this will count as one of your visits. If two visits are missed, your treatment will be cancelled - further treatment will be charged as per the costs above.

For treatments of rats, mice and cockroaches there are a maximum of 3 visits. Any missed pre–arranged appointment will count as a visit.

Cancellations with a full refund can only be made prior to the visit of the Pest Control Officer by calling 01443 425001. If a Pest Control Officer calls at your property following a pre arranged booking then no refund can be made
