Don't be fooled by cheap products and services when it comes to insecticide treatments. We could do a spray for you as cheap as £35 but I I can promise you I wouldn't be very confident in that cheaper chemical working. The key to all pest control jobs is having the right chemicals and equipment for the job and if it sounds too good to be true be careful.
