Local Pest Control Company versus Council Pest Control Services
July 13, 2019
Professional Pest Control Wolverhampton | Same Day Service | Fixed Prices
With many local councils introducing fees for pest control services that were once free, or cutting pest treatment services completely, more homeowners and businesses will turn to an independent local pest control company to treat vermin infestations. Here’s how Aim Environmental compares against council services.
Birmingham City Council recently scrapped five of its pest control services and introduced or increased fees for remaining services.
Meanwhile, Wolverhampton’s budget for council pest control services has been slashed by as much as 70 percent in the past 12 months. It’s the same scenario across most UK local authorities.
With reduced council services and rising fees, a local pest control company could offer you better value, treating your pest problem quicker and at a lower cost.
Most council pest control services are limited, whereas a local pest control company can give you greater flexibility. Here’s how Aim Environmental Services stacks up against local councils.
