Pest control

Environmental Health can help and advise if you are concerned about an infestation of:

  • mice
  • insects
  • wasps 
  • rats
  • bees - due to the decrease in the bee population they will only be removed if they threaten health
  • squirrels 

An Environmental Health Officer can call out to the property to identify what the problem is and give advice. To report a vermin problem please contact Environmental Services.

Is there a charge?

If a Pest Controller visits a property a charge will be applied. A charge will apply irrespective of whether any treatment is carried out:

  • treatment of rats, mice, wasps and bees is £47.35
  • removal of squirrels is £71.07 if the premises are proofed

Card payment can be made over the phone.

If you are a council tenant there is no charge.

For more information contact Environmental Services.
