Our Service

The Council's Pest Control Service offers treatment for a range of insect and rodent infestations.

The Council's Pest Control Service offers treatment for a range of insect and rodent infestations.

Our Pest Control Officer is available for advice on how to get rid of pests.

From 1 April 2012 a *£15 charge will be levied to customers for survey and advice site visits to their homes. The pest control officer will advise how best to treat the pest, suggesting safe methods for treatment, baiting points and ways to protect the bait and non-target species. If after the visit the customer wishes for the Council to undertake the treatment rather than use a private contractor or self-treat, then the £15 for the site visit will be deducted from the total cost of the treatment.

When a pest control problem is reported to us we aim to book the appointment within a 48 hour period (weekdays only) although on most occasions this is often possible within 24 hours.

For charges of the destruction of public health pests refer to the relevant pest pages, ie bed bugs etc.

All poisons used are applied by the Pest Control Officer who will ensure the safety of the public and minimise damage to the environment.

*Note: There is a 50% reduction of the charge for a survey/advice visit where the householder/tenant is on Income Support, Income Based Job Seekers Allowance, Income Related Employment and Support Allowance and Guaranteed Pension Credit
