Pest control

The council does not provide a pest treatment service.

You can find information about local pest control traders in our approved traders document.

The council does:

  • provide advice on the prevention and treatment of many pests through its 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 us.
