Including industry, agriculture and environmental health, the service provides identification and assessment of insects from commercial, industrial, agricultural and household pest infestations or impacting on public health issues, including waste processing plants, residential, restaurants and take-aways, impact on communities from farms or industry. Reports are confidential and all work completed to professional standards. Legal work can be undertaken, but please flag any legal expectations ahead of contracting.
Identification and assessment of insects impacting on residential circumstances, either of public health concern or simply inquisitiveness. Most identifications are of single specimens and/or single species and take no more than one hour to process. More complex pest infestations will take longer and much the same service as for the commercial services is offered for these to householders on proviso that the report is used for own use only and that no legal process is to be undertaken. Legal work should be directed via your solicitor or County Council Public Health Department.
Commercial and household services are provided at the hourly rate of £50. Straight forward, single species identifications are usually completed within an hour. Additional time is required for photography and report writing.
For bulk samples, please note that our specimen rate applies:
Per species (or taxon) encountered - £10
Plus Per specimen identified - £5
