Animal and pest control

Please note that we do not offer a pest control service but we do help to ensure residents can keep their homes and gardens free from rats and mice. We can provide general advice on pest control issues but do not offer services such as wasp nest removal. If a wasps nest is on a building/school, they should have their own Pest Control service/Caretaker who will deal with it, or we contact them to arrange pest control to treat it. Likewise if a domestic property has one in their garden that is causing problems to passers-by, we can contact the occupier to deal with it.

Animal health and welfare

There is a wide range of legislation in the UK designed to protect the health and welfare of both domesticated and wild animals.

Rats and mice

Keeping chickens and poultry

Before you start, it is advisable to check your property deeds or consult your landlord to make sure there are no covenants preventing the keeping of ‘livestock’.

Feeding the ducks

It is important to know what is healthy to feed ducks as the wrong food can have serious consequences.

Nuisance birds

Overfeeding birds can result in them occurring in large numbers, which can be very problematic.
