Animals we don't treat
Honeybees: Contrary to popular belief bees aren't protected and can be treated, however they are endangered so we'd always recommend exploring all other avenues before considering eradication. For more information please visit The British Pest Control Association website.
Urban foxes: We are not responsible for the removal of urban foxes. Please see theRSPCA website for useful information on how to deal with foxes in your garden.
Bats: We do not deal with bats. For information, help and advice about bats please contact the Bats Conservation helpline on 0845 1300 228 or visit the Bats Conservation Trust website.
We also do contract work such as providing regular inspections and treatments, you can contact us for a free quotation.
We also provide a free identification service. The Pest Control Team can help in identifying insects and either arrange for a treatment to be carried out or, where no service is available, advise on what steps can be taken to resolve the problem.
You can either bring the insect to the Civic Centre, in a sealed container or send a crush proof container through the post. The insect can be dead or alive but not squashed. Please include you name, address and contact telephone number.
Please note that it may not always be possible to effectively treat a pest infestation. In such circumstances we will always provide an explanation and offer advice on the other options available to you.
