Pest control

The Council does not provide a service for the removal of Insects (including bees, wasps and ants) or birds and small mammals.

If you would like to report a bee swarm please visit the British Beekeepers Association website for more information.

You should contact a specialist provider. DIY pest control treatments are often available from good DIY shops, ironmongers, garden centres and pet shops. Always follow instructions very carefully.

Information about a wide range of pests can be found on the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) website.

Laws and regulation

We have a duty under the Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 to ensure that the district is kept free of rats and mice. We can serve notice upon the owners or occupiers of infested land requiring that they get rid of any infestation.
