What Is Commercial Pest Control?

Commercial pest control deals with the prevention and eradication of pests in businesses. 


With regular preventative pest control methods, you’ll never have to worry about an infestation on your commercial property. These services are designed to help you avoid pests in the first place so you don’t end up with expensive repair bills.


Pest eradication deals with an infestation that has already taken hold on your property. This is a more reactive service that aims to quickly and effectively eradicate any pests so your business can continue as usual. Once under control, preventative methods will be used so pests do not return.

Common Pests in the UK

Many types of pests can cause significant risks to property and commercial premises in the UK. Some of the most common pests we deal with include

  • Cockroaches: are incredibly hardy animals that can squeeze into the smallest of spaces. They are also known to spread diseases and can be particularly bad if you are running a business where food is served.
  • Rats and mice: can cause a huge amount of damage to your property, as well as contaminate food and spread disease. Rodent infestations can be hard to get rid of.
  • Bed bugs: are becoming increasingly common in the UK, especially during the warmer months, and can be very difficult to get rid of once they have infested a property. They feed on blood, causing an itchy and irritating rash on the skin.
  • Wasps and hornets: can be very aggressive and their stings are quite painful. There is an increased danger if the person is allergic or if the wasps/hornets swarm.
  • Birds: can carry diseases and their droppings can cause health problems. They can also damage property when nesting.

A commercial pest management company will be able to deal with all of these pests and more. The sooner you catch the infestation, the better.

Risks of Pests in Commercial Properties

It’s vital to think ahead when it comes to pest control and ensure that you get regular inspections to try and avoid any worst-case scenarios. 

We’ve outlined some of the major risks caused by pest infestations on your commercial property

Ruined stock

A pest infestation can destroy your stock. This is especially the case if you work in the food and beverage industry. It is not safe to sell food that has been contaminated by rats, cockroaches, or other pests.

Damaged equipment

Pests can also damage your equipment, fittings, and furniture which can be costly to repair or replace. Rats and mice chewing through wires is a prime example of this.

Legal implications

In some cases, you may be breaking the law if you have a pest problem and do nothing about it, especially in food-related businesses. It is your responsibility under the Health and Safety Act of 1974 to provide a safe and clean workplace. Pests can compromise this.

Spreading diseases

Some pests can spread diseases which is a major health and safety risk. This is another reason why getting rid of them as soon as possible is so important.

How Long Does Pest Control Take?

Understandably, our customers want pest control to be carried out quickly and with minimal disruption to business. The amount of time it takes to carry out pest control depends on several factors:

  • Type of treatment: preventative pest control is by far the fastest method of pest control. Eradicating an existing infestation will take longer.
  • Extent of the infestation: the smaller the infestation, the faster we’ll be able to deal with it.
  • Size of the property: Larger buildings will naturally take longer to service thoroughly.

Here’s a rough guide for common scenarios:

  • Preventative treatment for common pests: 15-30 minutes
  • Active infestations (cockroaches, ants): 90 minutes to 2+ hours
  • Heat treatment for termites: 4 or more hours
  • Rodent removal: Up to 15 hours (multiple days possible)

Commercial Pest Control FAQs

Pest control does not just refer to getting rid of pests but also putting plans and systems in place to monitor for pests and prevent them from causing an issue in the future.

There are things you can do by yourself to try and keep commercial premises safe. However, if you have an infestation and want peace of mind that pest issues are dealt with, paying for commercial pest control is worthwhile.

Professional pest control companies use a variety of different substances and products to both deter and control pests in businesses. In recent years, pest control products have become even more effective, but a skilled professional is also required.

Monthly pest control visits mean that preventative methods can be put in place to help prevent the health and safety issues pests can cause.

While commercial pest control is not mandatory, the law requires effective pest management to stay in line with health and safety regulations.

Not staying on top of pest control issues on your commercial premises can lead to fines, infestations, a negative impact on your business, and health risks for staff and visitors.

A professional pest control company will deal with all unwanted pests, including mice, rats, cockroaches, ants, wasps, birds, and more.

We understand the importance of discretion for your business. As such, we’ll work around a schedule that suits you and aim to cause minimal disruptions to business.

Pest control can take anywhere from 15 minutes to multiple days depending on the type of treatment, the extent of the infestation and the size of the building.

The cost of pest control for commercial premises typically ranges from around £100 to over £1,200. The cost depends on the specific pest to be dealt with, the severity of the issue, and the size of the property. Contact us for a quote today.
