Insects as statutory nuisance

Last Updated:

Insects coming from an industrial, trade or business premises may be a statutory nuisance and can be investigated by the council.

However, we cannot treat insects from another domestic premise as a nuisance and cannot investigate.

How to make a complaint

If you feel the problem may be classed as a statutory nuisance, have spoken to the person from whose premise the insects are coming (or do not feel you are able to) and the problem continues, please contact us with the details.
