Hounslow Council’s pest control department (which covers Feltham, Twickenham, Richmond, Teddington, Brentwood, Ashford, Staines on Thames, Egham, Sunbury, Heathrow and Stanwell) are more expensive than PEST UK’s charges for all pest control.
There is also no consistency in pricing, I can’t understand for example why Hounslow Council Pest Control Department charge more for mice than for rats and more for fleas than for garden ants. I can’t understand why councils charge so much, they have far less overheads than private companies. They have more buying power than smaller private pest control companies, so they get cheaper vans and equipment, no advertising costs as most of the prospective customers go straight to the council pest control website yet still they charge well above the ‘normal’ rate that private companies would charge to make a profit. Either this council is ripping off the people they are meant to look after and/or they are grossly inefficient. Most private companies not only offer a more cost effective pest control service but also a superior service in many ways. For a start at PEST UK we operate a same day service 7 days a week including Bank Holidays. We supply half hour or one hour time slots for appointments (not just afternoon or evening, although Hounslow Council’s Pest Control Service only work up to 4pm where as PEST UK have appointments from 7am to 7pm. All our treatments are guaranteed (providing advice on proofing and hygiene are adhered to) and as the technicians are only paid on results they ensure that the pest problem will be eliminated.
If the public only knew that it is poor value in service and price to call Hounslow Council, instead the public would be better served calling a private pest control company that is a member of the British Pest Control Association, this is the government recognised body that represents pest control in the UK and strictly vets it’s members before they join and on an ongoing basis for training, insurance, work practices and CRB checks. PEST UK is a full BPCA member.
