Wealden District Council

Pest Control Charges

Wealden District Council can offer a wide range of services to treat pests that can invade your home. We employ a fully qualified and insured pest control officer who can give free advice over the telephone upon request. If you are unsure about the type of pest you may have, an advice visit can be arranged for which there is a £48 charge. The charge can be offset against a treatment arising out of the visit.

We do not generally treat rats that are outside a dwelling, it is far better to remove the food sources that are attracting the rats, namely bird feed or compost heaps. Cutting back vegetation will also deter rats from around a property. However, if you still want a Pest Control Officer to visit and give advice, you can request this, although we do charge for this service.
