Pest Control Services for Businesses and Schools

To request our help please email environmental_health@newcastle-staffs.gov.uk or call 01782 717717

Most years we make over 600 pest control treatment or monitoring visits to control rats and mice at local businesses.  We also treat ant infestations and wasps nests regularly for commercial clients.  We work with schools, factories, offices and shops.

So, how can we help you?

Our commercial services

Single/simple treatments

We can usually resolve problems with insects such as  wasps, bees and ants in a single visit, from £75 including VAT. (£95 if you need to pay on invoice). We guarantee our insect treatment services.

We can also deal with rodent infestations and for this we charge by the hour. Once the treatment is complete we’ll send you a bill for the total amount of time we have spent at your property.  The rate for our first hour is £105 and then it’s a further £26.25 for each additional quarter of an hour we spend.  Our charges include the materials we use.

Regular treatments and checks

We can also offer a fixed cost programme of regular checks and treatments.  Typically, this will be the most cost effective arrangements for businesses that need to keep their premises free from rats or mice and want an officer to visit and check/treat regularly.  We will give you a quote when we first visit.  Our charges are based on the number of times we plan to visit, the time we will need to spend at your site each time, and the amount of materials we will need to use.  Our charges are from £350.  We will propose a number of options, ranging from a basic service, the cheapest option we can offer, through to a comprehensive 'platinum' monitoring and treatment plan. Full terms and conditions will be provided with the no-obligation quote.  We provide a treatment record book which details when we have visited, what we have found and the action we have taken.  Although this option is usually used for rodent control, we can include insect control treatments which you can request as required.  Clients can also request additional visits, for example to treat a wasps nest or problem with ants at a discounted rate

Inspection Services

Any business which stores, prepares, or sells food has an obligation to ensure its premises are pest-free. Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 Annex II Chapter IX, paragraph 4, requires food businesses to take all reasonable precautions to prevent food pests - namely rats, mice, cockroaches and flying insects - from gaining entry into food storage and preparation areas. This is to prevent the contamination of foodstuffs.  We can provide professional checks and reports to confirm that your site is pest-free and that your controls are working, or advise on extra precautions you need to take to comply with food hygiene best practice.  Our advice visits start from £50.
