How much do Contego's services cost?

This very much depends on the scale of the problem. However, our clients find our services incredibly cost effective especially when offset against saving the cost of the damage to buildings / property and in terms of health and safety. Many of our clients also benefit further from the positive PR from using nature to control nature, as opposed to using a more destructive approach.

 

What if I leave rats alone, what damage can they do?

 

Rats are transmitters of Weils Disease which is carried in their urine and enters the human body through cuts and abrasions. The disease, with its flu-like symptoms, if not recognised and quickly treated, can prove to be fatal.

Could I get a free survey?

A free survey is given in both commercial and domestic entities. Depending on the infestation, small problems can be successfully identified and the solution diagnosed by a telephone call. However some major pest infestations need a more intense survey to carefully analyse the root of the problem in order to find an appropriate and cost effective treatment. So, however in-depth your survey might be, this process is completely free.

 

What birds are protected against control?

All birds, their nests and eggs are protected by law and it is thus an offence, with certain exceptions to intentionally kill, injure or take any wild bird, or damage the nest, so any DIY bird control could end up with complications.

Trust the professionals. We know and deal with the exceptions to the rule, namely Crows, Collard Dove, Canada Geese, Greater Black- Backed Gulls, Herring Gulls, Jackdaws, Jays, Magpies, Feral Pigeons, Rooks, House Sparrows, Starlings and Wood Pigeons.

Ground nesting birds such as Skylarks and Lapwings are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, the act states that these birds can not be disturbed during their nesting period which is between March to July. So we provide bird scaring techniques at their nesting sites before the nesting season begins to ensure that they don't settle.
