If you have a pest problem

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.

Treating pest problems yourself

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.
