Commercial pest control: contract information


Commercial pest control provides a wide range of services which can be obtained as part of a contract. We only deal with commercial businesses which do not store, sell or process food.

A contract may better suit your needs and can be cheaper per visit. A contract is a written agreement to do a job for a given price. How this agreement is worded will be between the Pest Control Officer and the business. Picking a type of contract will be dependant on the size of the site and the level of the problem.

We can tailor our service to your needs. For instance we can even provide an out of hours service to suit your business needs. Please see our hourly rates below. However our contracts are likely to be more cost effective. For a free estimate or to ask a more specific question about the types of services offered please raise an enquiry through our service specific page.
