Pest Control

We provide a chargeable pest control service for a variety of common pests in homes and businesses throughout Leicester.


What pests do you treat


How much does it cost?

There is a charge of £57 for treating Bedbugs, Cockroaches, Fleas, Mice and Wasps.  NB: Payment of £57 is required at the time of booking for the treatment of domestic properties.  Treatment for rats at domestic properties is FREE.


Please note if the call has been logged for rats and the technician discovers that the problem is mice, you will need to pay before we provide the treatment.  We reserve the right to refuse the treatment at that point in time.

The charges for commercial treatments is calculated on a case-by-case basis.
