Pest Control


There are plenty of good reasons why you might want to rid your home of pests.  They can be a nuisance, damage your home or endanger your health and safety.  If you are a Dudley borough resident, we can help you.

We provide a range of pest control services, (Monday to Friday) and we can also offer advice and guidance on most pest problems.

Please note that the pest control service is only available to properties located within the borough of Dudley.

Identify the Pest

Our site gives full descriptions and pictures of the most common pests found in homes.  We also have advice about the things you can do to prevent pests infesting your home, or treatments you can carry out yourself.

Removal of Animal Carcasses

The Council will respond quickly to requests for the removal and disposal of dead animals found on the highway or open land.

Commercial Services

Pest infestations cost businesses money.  Pests damage and contaminate food, gnaw through electrical cables and cause disease.  As a food business proprietor it is YOUR responsibility to deal with pests effectively.
