Pest control

The Pest Control team provide advice on all pest control matters. Where appropriate, our Pest Control staff will undertake pesticide treatment of rodent and insect infestations.

We carry out treatment for council tenants on behalf of the Housing Team. Council tenants are not directly charged for this service. We do charge private property owners for treatment - please see the Charges section below for details.

You can report pest issues online or by getting in touch with the Environmental Health service.

We don't usually carry out treatment for issues caused by the species below but Environmental Health Pest Control officers will provide advice.

  • Foxes
  • Rabbits
  • Grey squirrels
  • Bees
  • Slugs
  • Spiders
  • Earwigs
