3) During the initial phone conversation we will try to establish the extent of
your problem and give you an estimated price.
We will need to know what town you are in, what pest you are
reporting, where in the house or garden you have seen them. After that
who will be present at the premises and who will be paying for the
We will then ask you (if you want to go ahead) to email us with your
full address including postcode, and a day and two times that would be convenient for you, for a
pest controller to call.
4) We will then send you a confirmation email with everything that was
discussed, the appointment date and time, the final price, the details of the
treatment we will provide, the pest controllers name and the vehicle they
will be driving.
5) Payment can either be Bank to Bank through IBAN (please allow 3 days for
payments to clear) or cash on the day..
6) If cash then a receipt
is always provided.
That's it simple !!!
Do I have to leave while the treatment is being
No, just keep away from the areas being treated.
Wasps swarm and get very aggressive, so keep clear is our advice. The
smell of insecticides can be off putting, so let the area completely dry
out (e.g a couple of hours) with the windows open.
How long will the treatment take.
Generally it will take
about one hour.
Will it make a mess.
For nearly all treatments - They do not
make a mess. However for some wood treatments there will be spillage,
but we bring coverings to catch any spillage.
Will I have to leave the house.
Unlike fumigation, our
service is the least disruptive to the occupants. We have heard of cases
where three men turn up, tell the occupants to vacate the premises and
not to return for eight hours. Our treatment are designed to be
effective, cause the least disruption to the occupants and continue to
work until the pests are gone. Unlike fumigation, which after the smoke
has cleared so has the protection.
How long will it take for the treatment to work and control the pest.
The time will depend on the weather,
the pest, where they are and how many of them there are.
In many cases the pest has not been reported until it becomes a problem. This
could be a few days to many weeks. So expecting an immediate solution after the start of the treatment is unreasonable.
Will I have to do anything after the treatment.
Yes. Generally Pests appear due to the lifestyle of the property owner,
the access given to the property by the owner to complete strangers, the unfinished DIY jobs done by the owner or trades people or lack of prevention
measures. The post treatment guidelines, if followed, should help in achieving a pest free dwelling.
What if the pest controller finds the wasps are actually bees.
As per the Standard terms and conditions, you will still be charged
for the call out.
