Pest control, welfare and DCOs

Pest control

There are three main areas of activity:

  • residential services: dealing with pests in residents’ own homes and gardens
  • enforcement services: dealing with pests reported at premises other than your own
  • commercial services: pest control and pest protection services available to businesses within the London Borough of Hounslow.

Pests we do treat

We deal with a wide range of pest species including

  • rats
  • mice
  • squirrels
  • fleas
  • cockroaches
  • bedbugs
  • pharaoh ants
  • garden ants
  • wasps.
  • Pigeons in roof spaces etc.

We can also install bird proofing systems such as nets and spikes etc. These are subject to estimate and are not available at a fixed rate.

Pests we do not treat:

  • foxes
  • wood boring insects
  • bees.

Charges

For all fixed-rate services payment is required in advance. Payment by cash or cheque payments may also be received on the day of the first visit but before work commences.   

Pest Control Services are non-statutory and do not have to be provided by the Local Authority. The service must now cover the full costs of provision and, as a result, we can no longer offer concessionary rates for householders in receipt of certain benefits.
