Pest control of rats and mice

Request pest control

If you see a rat in your garden, you must act. We recommend you talk to your neighbours and tell them what you’ve seen and agree what everyone will do. You can: 

  • request our help 
  • purchase baits or traps yourself 
  • employ another pest controller.  

If problems continue, we can use enforcement powers to get things sorted. The properties affected will need to pay the enforcement costs.
