Sorry, it's not nice to talk about but sometimes these things happen. No one wants (uninvited) mice, rats and bugs in their home and if this does happen it can be a concerning time. If you have an infestation in your home or garden, it’s important that you get rid of it straight away.
North Lincolnshire Council can offer assistance as well as various pest & vermin control companies. It's also important that you let us know. If you report an infestation to us, we will arrange for your Housing Officer to visit you to make sure the infestation has gone and help you in any way we can. Please note that we may apply a recharge if we incur costs as a result of an infestation in your home. It's also worth having a look at the British Pest Control Association website, who have a lot of information about identifying pests, what to do, and how to prevent getting them in future.
If an infestation occurs outside your home, for example in a bin cupboard or communal area, again, contact us straight away and we will ask our pest control contractor to remove it.
