Edinburgh Pest Control Prices

Pests require different solutions to control and eliminate them. Due to the huge variety in the types of buildings across Edinburgh, each pest problem will differ. There are a variety of factors in the type of services provided, which means the price of pest control can vary. Factors include;

  • The type of pest problem 
  • Size of the infestation 
  • Overall size of the property to be treated
  • Number of treatments needed

Wasp Nest Removal in Edinburgh

To get rid of wasps you do 'not' need wasp nest removal, but you do need to treat the nest and the nesting wasps. If the nest is within a cavity wall or similar enclosed space it’s unlikely you’ll be able to remove it, but the wasps and nest can still be treated. We provide effective wasp treatments across the Edinburgh region by qualified, experienced exterminators who offer expert prevention and proofing advice.

Rat and Mice Control in Edinburgh

The densely populated conurbation of Edinburgh is a haven for pests like rats and mice. As commensal pests, rodents have adapted to life in Edinburgh with ease. Both rats and house mice are omnivorous, consuming anything from contents of rubbish bags and discarded leftovers, to the contents of compost bins and fruits and seeds in the green city of Edinburgh’s gardens, parks and open spaces, such as Holyrood Park, Princes Street Gardens, Regent Gardens, Calton Hill and The Meadows.

Rat Exterminator in Edinburgh

The city's many parks and open spaces offer these creatures potential safe havens to hide and nest, along with numerous lofts and cellars throughout the Edinburgh area. However our skilled, local experts know how to find their harbourages and control these pests. Seeking professional rat removal from qualified rodent exterminators is vital to ensure any infestation is tackled quickly and effectively.

Mice Exterminator in Edinburgh

Across Edinburgh you will encounter mice at some point. House mice prefer to shelter inside buildings, remaining active all year round. Takeaways and other premises serving food in Edinburgh city centre need to be particularly vigilant as mice only need 3g of food a day to survive. Our qualified rodent exterminators offer advice on mouse proofing your property and can eliminate an existing infestation of mice swiftly.

Bed Bug Treatment in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the second most populated area in Scotland and the most visited city by foreign guests. Edinburgh’s large number of tourists staying in hotels and hostels across the city offer the bed bug population the opportunity to grow and thrive, offering safety and transportation to enable further infestations. This offers parasites such as bed bugs opportunities to flourish and spread across a variety of accommodation from hotels to self-catering. Dealing with a bed bug infestation effectively is complex, but our years of experience and expertise in pest control throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians means we offer the most effective treatments to eradicate these parasites.
