Pest control advice

The Council can offer advice on a wide range of pest control issues.

Where a treatment can be provided, arrangements will be made for a pest control office to visit.

In other cases, the pest control office may provide advice on how to treat a pest or where to obtain readily available products which would be useful for a particular problem.

It is very important to read the manufacturers instructions for any 'over the counter' treatments very carefully before they are used and to only use the insecticide for the use that it is intended.

They can also advise on measures to prevent further problems.

Information sheets are available for some of the more common pests including:

  • pigeons
  • flies
  • ants
  • bed bugs
  • cockroaches
  • fleas
  • mice
  • wasps.
