Pest control in South Norfolk

Our Pest Control Team provide an expert service for both domestic and commercial premises in South Norfolk.

We can treat the following pests.

Our fully trained officers use an insecticide to treat the nest and have all the necessary protective clothing including headgear to deal with the problem safely. We will need you to locate the wasp/hornet nest prior to booking your treatment.

We do not treat bees. For more information about identifying bees and what to do with a bee swarm please refer to The British Beekeepers Association

If you have an infestation of rats or mice, the only consistent method of control is by poisons; we offer a pest control service to do this.

On the day of treatment, you are asked to be present to receive a treatment record detailing relevant health and safety information.

During the treatment we want the rodents to find the poison we put down more attractive than anything else. Therefore, to make your treatment successful you should make sure there are no other sources of food to distract them.

Please note:

  • If you have been feeding birds it is wise to stop while the treatment is carried out
  • Do not leave animal food down on the ground
  • Keep outdoor food (e.g. pet food or your home grown fruit and vegetables) in sealed containers.

Re-infestation

If the rodents return to the same area within five working days and your total allocation of four visits has not been used, you can contact us to resume treatment. The officer will close your job when they feel there is no further problem, or if there is nothing further we can do. We will give you advice on protecting your home or business against future infestations.

Before we carry out the treatment, we ask that you treat all pets, wash their bedding and thoroughly vacuum the household including all soft furnishings. The maximum amount of floor space needs to be cleared for the chemical to be effective (including under beds/children's toys/DVD's etc).

Please be aware that our treatment may be less effective on hard floors. The property will need to be vacated for at least three hours whilst the chemical dries. We then recommend that you vacuum the house after five days. Complete control of the infestation may take several weeks. The officer will give further advice on the day of the treatment.

If you are asthmatic or have breathing difficulties, it is recommended that you leave the area being treated until completed.
