Pest control

Pests on private property

From 21 December 21 2015 we no longer offer a pest control service.

If you require a pest treatment please search on the Internet or check the Yellow Pages. Reputable companies will be a member of the BPCA (British Pest Control Association) or NPTA (National Pest Technicians Association) and will have a health and safety quality standard such as CHAS (Contractors' Health and Safety Assessment Scheme).

We can not make recommendations of pest control companies.

Rats on public land

If you see a rat on public land please telephone 020 8274 4901 to speak to our environmental health team.

We are still offering the collection of dead animals such as foxes, dogs and cats. To request this service please ring the number at the bottom of this page.

Advice on dealing with specific pests

Please see our Bedbugs, Cockroaches, Squirrels, Pharaoh ants, Rats, Mice, Foxes, Fleas, Flies, Garden ants, moths, Pigeons, Spiders, and Wasps pages for information.
