Pest control

Please note: During busy periods (summer months) Pest Control Services are extremely busy. As a result, any booked treatments may take up to a week to attend.

We can give advice and treat many of the most common pest issues. The table below shows which pests we can deal with and where.

If you have an issue with a pest not listed you will need to contact a private company for advice and treatment.


Inside the property

  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Wasps - We treat wasp nests as these insects may present a risk to public safety.
  • Ants
  • Bees - Attempts are made to relocate the nests and swarms of honeybees, by using local beekeepers, as an alternative to destroying them. A Pest Control Officer will contact you to discuss this.
  • Flies, Fleas, Beetles, Cockroaches, Mites, Silverfish, Firebrats

Outside the property

  • Rats
  • Wasps - We treat wasp nests as these insects may present a risk to public safety.
  • Bees - Attempts are made to relocate the nests and swarms of honeybees, by using local beekeepers, as an alternative to destroying them. A Pest Control Officer will contact you to discuss.

Rodent control work includes surveys of commercial, agricultural and rural premises and appropriate control measures are adopted when required.

Charges as of April 2022

If the Pest Control Operative attends a property (even if no work is carried out) and a payment has been made, there will be no refunds.

Once a customer has made a booking, a refund can be granted up until 6pm the following working day by calling 03451 55 00 22 (provided a pest control officer has not yet attended).

If you would like advice about pest control or need to report a pest issue on someone else's property please use the webchat service available via the button on the right.

If you have different pest types e.g. wasps nest and mice then you will need to complete an online request for each separate type of pest.

Gull nuisance

Each year, during the summer months, we receive a number of complaints about the problems caused by seagulls.

To lessen the problems, we can all play our part by:

  • not feeding the gulls, deliberately or by dropping litter and
  • property owners gull-proofing their properties before breeding season starts.

Please visit our Seagull advice page for more information.
