In simple terms the charges that Prokill levies are based on a simple calculation -Time on site + cost of preparation, multiplied by number of visits required. And there are a number of factors that impact on this, such as:
Type of Pest – This is a key factor in the overall pricing. As different pests require different solutions. The cost of controlling Rodents, and the works involved are different to that of Controlling Bed bugs.
Size of infestation – The Size of the infestation impacts on the costs, as treating a long established Rat problem from a property, will take significantly longer than a casual intruder that has recently gain access to the premises.
Type of treatment - for each pest there are different treatments that we can offer, this sometimes is tailored due to a client need or requirement. For example using insecticide to treat for bedbugs, will differ from using a chemical free heat treatment, and as such the pricing for each method are different.
Prevention rather than Cure -The cost for remedial works to control a infestation will differ from those of a preventative program ,which is aimed at minimising the risk of a infestation becoming established.
Size of property – The size of a property impacts on the price that is charged, as treating a small office space for fleas, would be cheaper than treating a large open plan office spread over 2 floors, as the amount of time on site would be significantly greater
No of treatments – Certain pest species take longer to gain control and as such require additional visits and incur a larger charge. Wasp nests can be treated in visit, while a typical mouse treatment will require a minimum of three visits to obtain control
Residential and Commercial property – There is a difference between the costs for residential properties and business, as the needs of both are different, residential properties tend to require one of services, while commercial properties Commercial properties often require ongoing support to comply with specific laws such as food safety. Long term support for businesses, in the form of an integrated pest management programme, will have an impact on the price of the services provided.
