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

If you are a council tenant you should contact your local housing office in the first instance.

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

This work is carried out by an external contractor who provides a next day service. Pest control enquiries received before 3.30pm will be visited on the next working day.

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 £48.77.
  • removal of squirrels is £73.20 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.
