Pest Control

Coronavirus update

Following suspension of the Council’s pest control service due to the Coronavirus pandemic we are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer a limited service.

From Monday 8th we will be able to offer treatments that do not require the officers to enter resident’s homes.  This means,  for example,  that we will be able to visit to treat wasps’ nests and rodents in gardens, open spaces and out buildings.

If you would like to arrange for us to visit please contact us by telephone on 01282 661604 (during office hours) or by emailing julie.hannum@pendle.gov.uk.

Please note office hours are as follows:

9am to 5pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday

9am to 12 noon Wednesday.

Rats and mice

Left alone, rats and mice can cause a lot of damage to your home. They carry diseases too. We offer a range of services including:

  • advice about how to keep rats away
  • different control methods, including rodenticides and traps
  • investigating the source of an infestation
  • drain camera surveys to find out how the rodents are getting in
  • proofing of your home to prevent re-infestation
  • sewer baiting throughout the district - many infestations start in the sewer systems
  • annual contracts for commercial premises for a set fee, with no hidden extras

Insects

Insects carry diseases that can be passed on to humans, and can cause distress when they are present in your home. We offer a range of services including:

  • identification of insect species
  • eradication of insects using a range of insecticides and equipment
  • the supply and service of electrical flykillers and fly screening
  • using monitoring devices to determine whether a problem exists
  • FREE information and advice on how to proof premises to prevent re-infestation
