Why do I need ongoing pest control services?
In certain businesses, like food and drink and hospitality, regular pest inspections are required for health and safety as well as food hygiene reasons. Other business premises, such as warehouses, can see pest infestations break out quickly, damaging stock as well as containers, wires and other fixtures and fittings.
Setting up regular visits will give you peace of mind and keep your business running as normal. In domestic premises, scheduling regular visits can also prevent infestations from getting out of hand, plus prevent them from happening in the future.
Is paying for pest control worth it?
Absolutely. Choose Pest Stop Boys for your pest control services, and you’ll know that you’ve chosen a Killgerm and British Pest Control Association accredited pest control company, with a huge amount of experience in treating and preventing pests of all types.
Paying for professional pest control gives you the peace of mind that you’ve completely eradicated the problem, with the health and safety of your property’s occupants in mind.
How often should I get pest control treatments?
This depends on a number of factors.
Residential vs. commercial premises: Often we will just treat infestations at residential properties as and when they arise. However, commercial premises may want to consider regular, preventative pest control services.
Seasonality: Annual visits can protect against pests that appear only at certain times of the year.
Environment: Certain settings, like healthcare facilities and food businesses, may need more regular visits as the risk of infestation (and its consequences) can be higher.
Type and size of infestation: Some pests can multiply quickly – rats, for example, can reproduce every three weeks. Without regular visits, the situation can worsen incredibly quickly.
Does the treatment take care of all pests or just the pest in question?
For a treatment to be truly effective, it needs to be tailored to the pest it’s treating. If we find more than one pest on your property, we’ll let you know what we recommend and why. Whether we use a single product or solution or multiple methods, we’ll often be able to clear the infestation in a single visit.
Can you DIY pest control?
You can…but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should. By choosing a pest control company like Pest Stop Boys, you can be sure that your pest infestation is completely removed and that steps have been taken to prevent it coming back. What’s more, many off-the-shelf pest removal products are highly toxic, putting pets and children at risk. We’ll always find the right solution – low or non-toxic where possible – for your individual circumstances.
Do you provide free quotes?
We do, indeed. We often ask for images of the infestation, which helps us to quickly identify the pest, and for larger jobs, we will come to your property free of charge within 24 hours of you getting in touch. Once we’ve established the type of pest and the extent of the problem, we’ll give you a completely free, no-obligation quote for our pest control services.
How much does pest control cost?
We know that it would be handy to have an idea of costs before you contact us, but pest control services aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution.
