Pest Control

Pest Control in public locations

Some pests carry diseases and many destroy and contaminate food, gnaw at electrical cables, damage pipes and damage buildings.

They are often the cause of fires, floods and prosecution due to breaches of the legislation.

Where there is vermin or pest issues in public or council owned locations you can report the issue on our pest control form below.

Examples of locations are:

  • Harrow's parks
  • Harrow car parks
  • Council owned properties such as allotments, streets and grass verges.

There is no charge for the service and we will not be able to use bait-boxes in parks or on streets due to the risks to other wildlife and pets.

By reporting the pest issues we can further investigate where the issue is stemming from.

If there is an issue regarding a build up of rubbish or litter causing rodents to feed, please make a note of this location on our online form and we will get it removed.

We can never entirely get rid of rats and it is not unusual to see them close to railway lines or watercourses.
