Pest Control Services

Domestic Pest Control Treatments

Please note you will be asked to pay for any treatment at the time of reporting it. Please try to ensure that before you call to book a wasp nest treatment, that they are indeed wasps and not bees. Bees build their nests out of wax cells that they stack on top of one another. Most honeybee nests are manufactured, but other bees make their homes in tree cavities, buildings or even holes in the ground. A wasp's nest consists of one or more rounded combs made of a papery pulp. The wasp makes this pulp out of chewed-up fibers and its own saliva. Wasps tend to build in hidden, out of the way places, like under decks or in remote crevices.We do not treat bees, for environmental reasons, and if we visit and find bees and not wasps, you will be charged the call-out fee (i.e. you will be refunded the difference between the cost of a wasp treatment and a call-out).

The Pest Control Service treats the following pests:

We do not treat the following 'pests'. However we are able to provide advice leaflets for some of the pests below. Please click on the appropriate link (these 'pests' may be treated by outside pest control companies whose telephone numbers may be found in either local papers or the 'Yellow Pages'):

In the case of rats in the garden, and insects of public health significance, the Council will normally deal with these pests within 10 working days (although it is normally much sooner). If there are rats in your house, we will try to get there to treat by the following working day.

Treatments for vermin or insects coming into your premises can only be undertaken on your land. We may not go onto your neighbours land without their permission.

Commercial Premises

Charges for commercial premises are generally consistent with those for domestic premises, but for particularly large premises, for example, we may wish to quote individually

Rodent control contracts for rats and mice on farms and other commercial premises or large warehouses start at £450 + VAT for 10 visits per year. The 10 regular visits are carried out between September and June each year to check and lay bait as necessary to ensure you are infestation free. If a problem develops you can call us and we will visit and deal with it without a charge.

The basic £450 + VAT contract is normally suitable for shops, small warehouses and small to medium sized farms.

If you would like to discuss a contract please telephone Geoff Turton, Environmenral Health Manager 01789 267575.
