If you have problems with pests like mice, rats, fleas and wasps you can arrange a pest control visit.
Due to restrictions in place to help limit the spread of Covid-19 and protect public health, we are currently operating an adapted pest control service. Officers will assess at your premises whether an internal visit can be carried out in-line with Government guidelines.
If the officers are unable to enter, they can provide advice and if necessary pre-prepared bait boxes at the doorstep and advise where they should be positioned within your property.
External assessments can still be undertaken as normal with social distancing being adhered to at all times.
Due to the volume of calls the pest control service are receiving it can take approximately 10 days for a visit for rodents to be arranged.
Our current fees are detailed below. These apply to treatment during office hours (8.30am - 5.00pm, Monday to Thursday, 8.30am-4.30pm, Friday).
We do carry out treatments outside office hours, but there is a charge of £117 (including VAT) for all these calls.
|Type of pest||Charge for treatment in domestic premises||Charge for treatment in non-domestic and commercial premises|

We do not treat for bees as, although not protected, they are endangered.
If you have a swarm of bees you may wish to contact the Swansea and District Beekeepers' Society who may be able to assist with its' removal.
You can also report a swarm of honey bees on the Bee swarm website. They will then alert local beekeepers who will be able to collect the swarm. Please don't delay. The quicker you report the swarm the quicker a beekeeper can deal with it and the easier it will be to rehome the bees.
For information specifically about bumblebees visit the Bumblebee Conservation Trust website.
