In previous years Blackpool Council have provided a wide range of pest control services to both domestic and business premises. However, as a result of the recent Comprehensive Spending Review it has been determined that there is a requirement to reduce the number of staff within this service and unfortunately, as a result, the Pest Control Service will now only be provided to Business/Commercial Premises.
The only exception is the removal of wasp nests from domestic premises, a service which we will continue to provide during the summer months at a cost of £45.00. If an officer comes out and only gives advice, as in the case of certain types of bees, then a charge of £20.00 will apply - the other £25.00 will be refunded.
For those Businesses/Commercial premises that are still interested in using the Pest Control Service, you should be aware that there is still a charge for our service, although you will find our prices very competitive.
Should you need us to treat your pest problem, or would like further information on the services that we still provide, then please contact Customer First on 01253 477477 during office hours or email us to arrange an appointment with one of our officers.
Our current prices can be found below: -

Although Blackpool Council are not currently in a position to provide a Domestic Pest Control Service, we would like to advise that it is our intention to provide the residents of Blackpool with a list of reputable Pest Control contractors that could be used. This list is currently being compiled and will feature on this site in due course. In the meantime, we have a range of useful factsheets about how to deal with pests, which can be located within the site. Furthermore, please see our Frequently Asked Questions for more details of our services and the charges made (for some).
As mentioned above, we are still able to offer a service to remove wasp nests from domestic properties during the summer months at a cost of £45.
