We provide a range of pest control services, (Monday to Friday) and we can also offer advice and guidance on most pest problems.  This service is only available to properties located within the borough of Dudley.

Pests

Advice about what you can do to prevent pests infesting your home and 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.

Badgers

Badgers and their setts are protected under the Protection of Badgers Act 1992, which makes it illegal to kill, injure or take badgers or to interfere with a badger sett. The term ‘badger sett’ is normally understood to mean the system of tunnels and chambers, in which badgers live, and their entrances and immediate surrounds.

The Council is not responsible for solving problems relating to badgers and cannot offer advice.

The Natural England web site contains a considerable amount of information about badgers including a frequently asked questions section.

Alternatively there is a network of over 60 local Badger Groups across Great Britain, all working for the protection of their local badgers. Please see the Badger Trust website for further information.

Bees

Due to their environmental importance, we do not provide a treatment for bees, please contact the British Beekeepers Association.
