The council provides a pest control service (charges apply) at domestic premises only. For more information about specific infestations see the links on the left or use the contacts on the right to order a service.
Unfortunately we are not able to deal with:
- bed bugs
How long does it take?
You can usually expect a visit within five days, however, there may be a delay during times of increased demand for service.
The council has appointed a contractor, Total Pest Control (UK) Ltd to provide this service.
The charges including VAT are:
- rats and mice: £26.00 contribution - (unless the premises keeps animals that are not classed as domestic pets, for example, chickens, where a charge of £45 may apply)
- wasp & hornet nests: £45
- fleas: £85
Treatment is free only for residents receiving full housing and council tax benefits (unless the premises keeps animals that are not classified as domestic pets as above).
