Domestic Pest Control charges

As from 1st April 2017 a charge of £20 for the treatment of rats, mice, bedbugs and cockroaches will apply. For all other pest control treatments a single charge of £35 will apply. The charges for the treatment service offered by the Council are summarised in the table below:

Wasps and Ants, Fleas
Call out for visit not requiring treatment
Missed appointment

A call-out charge of £15 will be applied for visits not requiring treatments and for missed appointments. Additionally, it should be noted that in the case of treatment against wasps, should the insects turn out to be bees, the council will be unable to treat, but will retain a £15 call out fee.

Payment must be by Credit/Debit Card at the time of booking the visit.

Pest Control Service for Commercial Premises

The council provides a commercial Pest Control service for the treatment against ‘rats and mice’ in 'non-food' businesses. The cost is £120 (including VAT), covering two visits at intervals to be determined on site by agreement with the Pest Control Operative.

Additionally, the council will treat wasp nests at business premises at a cost of £50 per visit including VAT.

In the case of large factory sites, the Local Authority reserves the right to negotiate an alternative cost if it is clear that the treatment process will take a considerable period of time owing to the size of the site, difficulty of access, or other pertinent factors.

Payment must be by Credit/Debit Card at the time of booking the visit.
