Due to the lockdown and in the interests of keeping our customers and staff safe the service is now being run on a skeleton service for Rats, Mice and Wasps nests only where we can exercise social distancing or treat infestation externally.

The charges listed below are offered to all domestic residents. Some additional costs for mileage may be applied outside HDC area.
