Pest Control and Cleaning
PESTUK are often asked to disinfect, clean or treat with a biocide areas contaminated by rats. mice, squirrels or pigeons. In some cases these droppings can cause serious diseases, smells and cause irritant dust that can lead to respiratory problems. In some cases it may be necessary to remove and replace all the loft insulation. It depends on the level of contamination. A lot of cases can have the disease aspect dealt with by a pest control technician applying a biocide which kills any bacteria associated with these types of problems. These biocide formulations are designed especially for pest issues.
Prices of Pest Control and Cleaning
The price for a biocide treatment to a loft is £65 + VAT (unless extremely large) and if carried out in conjunction with a rodent or bird treatment then will be discounted by 10%. For prices on the loft insulation disposal and replacement then please go to the main PESTUK web site at: http://www.pestuk.com/loft-insulation-removal-installation.htm#.Wbldy9OGOqk
Below are ‘before and after’ pictures of a clean and biocide job that Konrad of PESTUK carried out in Wembley on 1st September 2017. We are very proud of the high standard of Konrad’s work. He is as well of course an excellent Pest Control Technician as well as being excellent at this sort of work.

PESTUK are full BPCA members. This is an association that has strict criteria for member companies before they are awarded membership and ongoing checks to see standards are kept up while members. All have to be properly insured, qualified (with proof of ongoing training) and CRB checked. See:

Northwood, Hillingdon Council
Northwood in the Borough of Hillingdon councils pest control services are provided by SDK Environmental Ltd (trading as Dial A Pest).
I attempted to contact them for a test of their services. This was quite difficult and frustrating. I was unable to find a contact number to call them and ask questions. Even going to their website I could not find a contact number.
On the Hillingdon Council page there is only the option to contact them via email, where you must already be logged in or create an account. You can then expect a call back in 24 hours to arrange a visit. You then must wait between 8am and 6pm on the day chosen for a technician to arrive and hopefully deal with you pest problem. What a waste of a day.
PESTUK in Northwood
At PESTUK you can call us 24 hours a day 7 days a week and always speak to a person, we will also be able to get someone out to you usually the same day or a day and time that suits you, unlike with Hillingdon Council.
The treatments provided by the council are limited as well. I could find no mention of treatments for the following:
- bed bugs
PESTUK provides treatment for all of these pests and at competitive prices as well as detailed information for customers as preparation before a visit as well as after care.

Spelthorne Council Pest Control Prices
Spelthorne councils pest control services are provided by CES (Clements Environmental Services). This company is not a member of the BPCA, and there main focus is dog wardens and control. The service provided by Spelthorne council only operates Monday to Friday and has a voicemail option for when they are not working.
I recently attempted contacting the council and after waiting was advised to use the contact form on the website with no idea of when I would be replied to.
At PESTUK we always answer the phone 24/7 365 days a year you will never speak to a machine with us.
When calling PESTUK you will be speaking to operators with knowledge of pests and the methods to control them; not just a council call centre. We can also give 2 hour response times and respond to requests the same day a call is made. Our technicians also work 7 days a week so we will always be available to treat a pest.
The British Pest Control Association
The British Pest Control Association is an independent organisation that has extremely strict criteria for pest control companies to join and to remain members. Companies that do not meet this criteria or break it will not be able to join or are removed from the organisation. This ensures that anyone who chooses a British Pest Control Association member gets a company with:
- Honest technicians (all will be CRB checked)
- Qualified pest control technicians (evidence of on going training and refresher courses annually)
- Fully insured
- A proper complaints procedure- hopefully not needed.
