Closure of our pest control service

Following a review, on 3 November 2022, the Council opted to withdraw its pest control treatment and visits service.

If you have a pest problem, you should contact a trusted pest control company. We recommended that you look for pest controllers that are part of a professional pest control organisation, such as the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) or National Pest Technicians Association (NPTA) National Pest Technicians Association.

If you choose to treat the problem yourself, the BPCA pest advice page provides an A to Z of pests and also offers useful advice and information on the control of all types of pests. 

If you are a WDC Housing Tenant, please contact Housing Repairs on 01926 456129, or via the below link, if you are experiencing issues with rats or other pests within your property.

If you wish to report a vermin (rats and/or mice) problem on neighbouring land, please report this via
