How We Work

We achieve our excellent pest control results by combining in-depth understanding of the pests we aim to control with a determination to see the job through to achieve the best possible results.

Additional Information

You will be offered either a morning or an afternoon appointment:

AM Appointments will be between 9.30-13.30

PM Appointments will be between 12.00-16.30

Unfortunately, we can’t always be more specific than this, as it allows our Officers to plan the most efficient route to cover the jobs they have booked for that particular day. Our Officers will be carrying identification, which you can ask for, but should introduce themselves to you.

All prices cover the whole treatment, and there are no hidden extras. For rodents, whether they are internal or external, 3 visits are about the average to deal with a problem. However, if further visits are required, then these are included. Wasps and other insects generally only require one visit, but if the Officer feels it is necessary to make a follow up appointment, we will arrange that with you at no extra cost.

The Treatments

For rodent treatments, we use mainly anticoagulant based rodenticides in various formulations. Their action is similar to that of warfarin, in that they stop the blood from clotting. All our rodenticides are second generation anticoagulants, and as far as we are aware, there are no tolerance or resistance issues in the Folkestone and Hythe area. All rodenticides are contained within tamper resistant bait boxes and are carefully placed in sheltered locations away from the reach of animals and children.

As part of the treatment, we will survey your property and, in the case of rats, check the drainage systems too. It is not always possible to find entry points, particularly in terraced houses and blocks of flats. Entry points by mice can be very difficult to locate. If we find anything, we will tell you, and offer advice on remedying the situation. Any and all recommendations must be followed to give our treatment the best chance of success.

For wasp treatments, an insecticidal powder is introduced to the nest, which attacks the individual wasps. This gradually transfers from one to another, and soon all are affected.

Commercial Contracts

We offer tailor made contracts for businesses. The benefits of having a contract are:

  • Routine pest control inspections
  • Identification and treatment of problems before they arise
  • Constant monitoring for all pest species on contract
  • Insect identification
  • Routine, follow up and emergency call outs are included in the cost.
