Pest control

Closure of Pest Control Treatment Service

The council presently provides a chargeable pest treatment service. The service is for a range of matters including; rats, mice, squirrels, wasps, bed bugs and ants.

Due to a continuing fall in demand for treatments the council has decided to close its pest control service from the 16 December 2016.

If residents or businesses require a treatment they must now approach private suppliers. Please find council supported pest control traders in PDF file downloadApproved traders in Bracknell Forest (PDF, 1447kb).

The council will continue to:

  • provide advice on the prevention and treatment of many pests through the website
  • take action under the Prevention of Damage from Pest Act 1949, where landowners are failing under their duty to manage their land in relation to rats or mice

If you wish to report infestations of rats or mice in a particular area please contact the council.
