PEST CONTROL FAQ

 

HOW MUCH DOES RODENT CONTROL COST?

It is very difficult to say how much a rat, mouse or squirrel pest control treatment will cost without a thorough survey. Our basic residential rodent pest control service starts at £230.00 (this is subject to the level of infestation). This initially includes three visits. The first visit is to carry out an in depth site survey and lay monitoring products and traps or baits. The second is to monitor, check and retrieve traps and if necessary we can then develop your treatment based on any findings at the third visit. 

We are usually able to offer a more accurate time scale and pricing structure following a site survey and initial treatment. 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DEAL WITH A RODENT INFESTATION?

Once again, it is hard to place a time frame on any treatment without knowing the level of infestation. We aim to deal with you pest control problem in the quickest possible time. Kent County Pest Control use the latest products and techniques to find the most effective pest control solution.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY PEST CONTROLLER?

We pride ourselves on the highest hygiene standards. Your pest controller will always be polite, smart and clean. We will not bring contaminated products into your business or property and any equipment will always be clean and sanitised before use (except products specifically for use outside). Your pest controller will be trained to required standards, insured and vetted. Unlike many companies, we do  not place time limits on visits. A visit will last as long as it takes to complete the required task.

SMELLS AND FLIES

During a treatment we make every effort to search and remove any dead rodents. Sometimes this will not be possible if for instance the rodent had died under floorboards. There may be a high chance that you may smell dead rodent if it dies in an unobtainable place. In this instance, the smell may last for a few days or weeks. The smell will pass as the decomposition subsides. It is worth noting that there may be an increased presence of flies during any treatment (We also offer fly treatments should this become a major issue) . The flies will usually only be present for around a week.

GLUE BOARDS AND GLUE TRAPS

As a business we have taken the decision not to use glue boards or glue traps in the treatment of rodent pest control. There is a place for them in modern pest control methods and treatments, but due to the potential of unnecessary suffering in the target/ non target species we have opted not to offer this as a service. We will use them if appropriate in the application of insect control services.
