very good and efficient service. The flies we ordered looked like the flies as advertised for sale which isn't always the case.

We purchased some Last Hope Lights and had great success with them last Friday evening. Will definitely use them again and have just purchased some more!

Great products and thoughtful extras on website. Usually very fast dispatch. Only minor point is holding an entire order if one component is back listed or requires acquisition from a manufacturer. Would be nice to get the available stuff as normal or to be given that option even if it needed extra P&P charge.
