Pest control and treatment

We can arrange a pest treatment for domestic properties affected with the pests listed below.

You should only request this service if:

  • you are certain you need a treatment carried out and
  • the pest is shown on the list below

The cost of the treatment will not be refunded if a treatment is not carried out because you have not followed these instructions. This is due to the costs incurred by the council and by the contractor attending the property.

If you need advice on any of the above complete our enquiry form before requesting a treatment.

Council properties

If you live in a council house, please complete our enquiry form giving details of the issue. This is so we can discuss the matter before a treatment is arranged.
