We use a contractor to provide household pest services. There is a charge for this service, payable to the contractor.

If you are in receipt of council tax reduction benefits, this service is provided at a reduced rate of £50 for rats and mice payable to the Council.

Request household pest visit 

If you wish to find your own contractor to deal with the problem, we recommend looking for one that is a member of the British Pest Control Association.


Bees are a protected species and cannot be killed. If you have a bee swarm they will generally move within a few days depending on the weather. If a swarm remains in place for several days you may wish to contact a beekeeper to have them removed.


We do not provide a service for managing foxes. The Fox Project offers a deterrent service.
