Coronavirus: A message from PESTUK

In Pests

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Amid the uncertainty surrounding the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to take the time to reach out and reassure you of some of the actions we are taking as a result of the ensuing pandemic.


What are we doing?

Pest control and sufficient hygiene standards go hand in hand. At PESTUK, we always follow strict hygiene protocols. We have further reinforced these in line with the latest Public Health England guidance and BPCA guidelines.

The health of our customers, technicians, office staff and their families is our number one priority. Any employee who may have symptoms is encouraged to isolate to contain any potential spreading of the virus. We will continue to follow best practice guidance in monitoring staff for potential exposure and providing staff with regular updates on actions being taken to reduce risks of exposure in the workplace.


Should I still call for Pest Control?

For now, it’s business as usual. Our technicians are taking extra precautions when it comes to visiting clients, both at commercial and domestic premises.

As long you do not have symptoms, have not travelled from any of the affected areas recently, and have not been in contact with anyone who may have the virus, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Pest infestations can be detrimental to your health. This is particularly concerning rodents which can pass diseases onto humans. Is it important that pest activity is not ignored. Call a reputable pest control company to deal with the issue before it escalates. Whether its rats, bed bugs, or even ants, infestations will only get worse if left alone.

At this time we are closely monitoring the situation. We will continue to update our staff and customers with any further developments.

Keep an eye on our Twitter for regular updates.


If you’re worried about the cleanliness of your home or commercial property during the ongoing pandemic we do offer a fogging disinfectant service which provides a fast, deep clean of your entire premises.
