New safety procedures for appointments
Our pest control service has reopened and we are now taking bookings, with some new coronavirus (COVID-19) safety measures in place.
You should not book if any member of your household:
- has tested positive in the last 14 days
- is waiting for results of a coronavirus (COVID-19) test
- is showing any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19)
- is currently self-isolating
Mites are barely visible to the human eye, which means it's hard to notice them until there is a large infestation.
There are many different types of mites, including dust mites, furniture mites and flour mites.
If you have a mite problem:
We recommend that you have a professional treatment carried out.
The price for residential pest control is £56.70
Business prices start from £97.50
Alternatively, you can call us on 0191 433 7000 to arrange treatment.
What happens at your appointment
On our first visit, the pest control officer will do some routine checks of the premise to identify where the mites are and how they will be treated.
After this, the officer will lay a insecticide dust or spray. They will then give you some advice on how to prevent the problem, which may include making repairs.
The pest control officer won't usually need to visit again as the poison lasts for a long period of time. A follow up appointment can be arranged if necessary.
We don't recommend that you use DIY treatment as it can be dangerous to the environment, yourself, children and pets.
How to prevent a mite problem
The best way to prevent mites is to make sure your property is tidy and free of nesting spots.
- Store dry foods in sealed containers
- Hoover carpets regularly
- Seal cracks or gaps in walls
- Leave food sitting out
- Use DIY treatments
Why mites are a problem
Mites have been associated with diseases such as scabies and asthma — which are caused by particles produced by dust mites.
As well as that, some mites can bite, which can be itchy and for some can cause reactions.
