Pest control

COVID-19 response

Our pest control service has recommenced. Due to COVID-19 and staff availability we are currently unable to provide a timeframe for treatment, but we will endeavor to carry out any treatment as soon as possible.

The health and safety of our staff is important and we ask that you don’t book a pest control treatment if you or anyone in your household have tested positive for COVID-19 or have shown symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days or are self isolating.

If you already have a booking and someone in your household tests positive, shows symptoms of COVID-19 or begins self isolating, please phone us on 0300 100 1800 and your booking will be rescheduled to a later date. 

Our staff will be wearing PPE such as masks, visors, gloves and aprons for their safety. We would therefore ask you to adhere to the Scottish Government guidelines on social distancing.

If strict lockdown measures are reintroduced at any time in the future and we have to suspend the service again, we will let you know and refund the cost of your booking.

We are still able to offer advice to customers on treating pests in the home.

Bees and bats

We do not provide pest control services for bees or bats.

Bees

Bees are essential to our environment and they are currently under threat from disease and pesticides. We normally advise they be left alone as they are generally not aggressive. However where bees swarm and possibly invade a house or chimney, help to remove such a swarm may be available from a local bee keeper. Further advice is available from the Bee Keepers Association.

Bats

Bats are protected by law and it is illegal to interfere with them. Should you continue to have concerns about bats, further information is available from Scottish Natural Heritage.

Pigeons

Pigeon droppings contain a number of different pathogens and once dry the resultant dust can lead to airborne transmission and potential infection. Those with compromised immune systems are most at risk.

Householders should avoid any direct contact with the faeces and use simple hygiene precautions after touching potentially contaminated materials. Removal of any faeces should be carried out by a professional.

We do not provide pest control services for pigeons. For concerns relating to health issues caused by contact with pigeon faeces please seek medical advice.
