Had rats in the loft and under the floor, these guys were quick to respond and thorough in getting rid of the rats. Explained what needed doing (and what it would cost), and got on top of the problem quickly and efficiently. Competitively priced, and I would recommend this company to anyone without hesitation. Would I use them again ? - yes, but hopefully won't have to. Thanks again.

Mr Stevens

In this and all other aspects of pest control, I am very satisfied with the service I have received from Latham's. I find them to be helpful, conscientious, knowledgeable and approachable. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Latham Pest Control.
