Our service promise

The council offers a range of competitively priced and professional pest control services. Whether it's your house or business that's being affected, we can take care of your pest problems.

Types of pests

We offer treatments for the following pests:

  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Fleas
  • Cockroaches
  • Bedbugs
  • Wasps
  • Ants
  • Moles

If you would like advice on how to deal with any of the above pests, please contact us using the details on the right or fill in our online form

For other pests such as pigeons, squirrels, bats, and foxes, we do not provide a treatment. However, we will offer advice on how to deal with them.

Please note: some species of bees are protected by law and cannot be destroyed. If you have a problem with bees, please phone us for advice or contact a bee keeper. It is important that the species of bee is identified before any action is taken.

Treatment plan for homes

For our residents we offer an extensive treatment plan that includes a survey of your home to find out the extent of the pest problem.

The most suitable treatment programme will be decided from this survey, and will be tailored to the type of pest being treated. Please get in touch with us to find out how we can help you.

After a treatment has been carried out, pest proofing advice will be given. A Pest Control Officer will have a look for access points in your property and offer you advice about how to prevent access by pests.

If you would like to book a treatment or need further advice, please contact us using the details on the right or fill in our online form.

Treatment plans for businesses

We offer single treatment plans or annual contracts for businesses

Single treatment plans are suitable for occasions when there is pest activity affecting your business. A Pest Control Officer will survey your business site to assess the best option for treating the problem. Pest proofing advice will also be offered when the treatment is carried out.

Annual contracts will start with a treatment if there is a current problem with pests. They will include pest proofing advice but will also include additional visits throughout a 12 month period to monitor signs of pests. Treatments will be carried out if pests return to the premises.

You don't have to have an existing pest problem to take out a pest control contract. Our Pest Control Officers will survey your business for likely access points and offer advice on how to minimise the risk of pest infestation. Visits will be carried out throughout the year to make sure you remain pest free; if you do find that pests have entered your business, you can call us out in between programmed visits.

All contracts will be tailored to suit your needs.

Other services

We offer drain surveys for both homes and businesses to help you find out if a drainage system is allowing pests to access a property. The survey will also identify any defects by feeding a specialist camera down the drain to check the condition of the pipework. A written report and a DVD recording of the completed survey will be supplied afterwards.

We also offer monthly-based rentals of hawk kites to homes and businesses, which are placed on land to deter birds and are effective for protecting crops and fruit trees. Our Pest Control Officers will be able to advise on the suitability of the kite for your land, where the kite should be placed, and will visit throughout the rental period to reposition the kite.
