Pest control for the Ryedale area

Find out which pests we can treat if you are a resident or business in the Ryedale area.

Pest control

All of our pest control teams are fully qualified to take care of pests in your home or business. We provide one off treatments as well as ongoing contracts.

Treatments

Our pest control service will provide treatments for: 

  • ants - only inside your property
  • certain types of beetle, such as biscuit beetle or larder beetle - only inside your property
  • cockroaches 
  • fleas and mites 
  • fly infestation - only inside your property
  • certain types of moth 
  • mice - only inside your property 
  • rats 
  • grey squirrels 
  • wasps - it is not always possible to treat a wasp nest if it’s in a difficult location, for example, a high roof or near to an electricity wire

Some pest treatments will require more than one visit. Our treatment prices include the number of visits that need to be made to deal with the problem. 

Bees

We do not provide a service for treating bees.  

If you want some help to identify bees or need to have a swarm safely removed, please visit the British Beekeepers Association website. Check with the beekeeper if there are any expenses, such as travel costs, that they may expect you to pay before making any arrangements with them. 

Fees and charges

VAT is included in advertised prices.

Call-out fees

We may charge a £67 call-out charge if: 

  • we find it is not practical or safe to carry out the treatment once we arrive at your property or business 
  • you are not in when we visit on the arranged date 
  • there is no need to provide a treatment, for example, the problem has been resolved 
  • we are called out to deal with wasps and they are identified as bees 

Pest control treatment charges

You will be sent an invoice after we have finished treatment. Please note that if insects need to be sent away for identification, there will be a £40 fee for this.
