Pest control health and safety

Health and Safety

  • Our pest control operatives all hold appropriate qualificiations in Pest Control and attend regular refresher courses.
  • We comply fully with all relevant health and safety legislation and guidelines.
  • We use only humane approved pesticides and techniques.
  • All our customers are given safety data and a guide on "what to do" in the event of any emergency.

Environmental Protection

  • You may be asked whether your really need a treatment - we don't use chemical pesticides unless we have to.
  • We use chemical free methods where appropriate e.g. traps and biological pesticides.
  • We liaise with beekeepers to recapture swarms of honeybees rather than destroying them.
  • We remove surplus bait and rodent carcasses after treatment, and dispose of them properly.
  • Our operatives are trained to minimise risk to animals other than those targeted.
  • We will give you free advice and information on pest prevention and proofing methods, to reduce the need for further treatment.
  • We try to use pesticides that have least negative environmental impact.
