Wealden District Council

Pest Control

What we do

We carry out a range of rodent and insect infestation treatments for Wealden residents.

We can provide treatments for rats, mice, wasps, fleas, bed bugs, cockroaches and lice in domestic premises. We will also treat wasps and some other pests in commercial premises (except food businesses)

Please see our Pest Control Charges page for details of our charges.

You can use our online forms below to request a Pest Control service or telephone us on 01323 443557.

Once you have reported your infestation a Pest Control Officer will contact you to make an appointment to visit. They can also provide advice on pest control matters and investigate and deal with complaints about infestations.

Should you have any concerns about your treatment or require technical advice, please ring 01323 443557.

We do not provide a service for removing bees, however local beekeepers are often willing to collect a swarm. For advice on swarms or to find a local beekeeper please visit British Beekeepers' Association (external link)
