Yes a residual insecticide dust can be applied to the air vent and the wasps carry it into the nest which then destroys the wasp colony.

How often do you increase your prices? 

We try to minimise changes to our pricing however impacts outside our influence such as fuel, chemicals, bait, and labour can increase price over time. When signing a contract with us, we commit to keeping that price in place for a minimum of two years. 

Do we use humane traps?

Humane, means causing as little distress to the pest as possible and this is right at the heart of our business.  The poisons we use actually put the animal to sleep without causing pain or stress.  Live traps are available however, are far more expensive as they need to be monitored daily they also don't get rid of the problem as it is illegal to re-home a pest on someone else land. 

Is there a weekend call out charge?

No, we charge the same prices throughout the week. We've built our business on being there for our customers when they need us, so we don't believe we should pass on an extra cost to our clients.

Can you kill seagulls? 

All birds are protected. Proofing measures such as spikes and nets must be used in the first instance.
