Wyre's pest control service update

Common Black Ant Published Thursday, 11 June 2020

Following the recent relaxation of the coronavirus restrictions, the council is looking to begin the gradual return of its pest control service from Monday 15 June 2020

Bookings will be restricted initally to outdoor treatments for rodents, ants, wasps and beetles and can be made by calling 01253 89 10 00.  Domestic charges are as follows, with payment restricted to card only made at the time of booking:

  • Rats & Mice - £41.50
  • Wasps, Ants & Beetles - £62.50

A 10% discount is available for households in receipt of Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support for rodent treatments. 

In the case of requests for wasp treatments, customers are advised to use the advice available here prior to making any booking. The council will not treat for bees and only a 50% refund will be offered where bees are identified on call out.

Priority will be given to any existing bookings and contracts and to those treatments suspended as a result of the lockdown.  Existing customers can expect to receive a call shortly. Indoor treatments are not being routinely undertaken at this time, however it is intended that they will be resumed as soon as they can be undertaken safely.

Social distancing requirements will be adhered to all times by our pest control technician, who we look forward to welcoming back after his valuable work within our Community support hubs. 

Thank you to all our customers for their patience and support during this difficult time.
