Pest control

Middlesbrough Council's Pest Control Service provides treatments for domestic and commercial properties. Pests are best dealt with by professional pest controllers because treatments require a high degree of knowledge and skill.

Pest Control Service technicians are all DBS checked and are trained to the highest standard: The Royal Society of Health - Pest Control (R.S.H. P.C.), the British Pest Control Accreditation (BCPA), and The Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU). Together, our technicians have over 75 years of experience working in the industry and are experts in their fields. They also have knowledge of pest control laws and are committed to keeping up to date with new legislation.


We specialise in:

  • Pigeon-proofing using the latest techniques
  • Rodent control, especially rats, mice, and squirrels
  • Other vertebrate animal control, including moles and rabbits
  • Fly control, including fitting UV lights, fly screens, and door curtains
  • Insect control, including fleas, cockroaches, bed bugs, etc.

Middlesbrough Council's Pest Control team is happy to provide its:

  • Risk assessments
  • Method statements
  • C.O.S.H.H. (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) data

The service carries no call-out charge during office hours, and offers a discreet service with full Public Liability Insurance. We are also supported by Middlesbrough Council's Health and Safety Team with other issues relating to the pest control industry.

Statutory Nuisance from insects

The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 added to the descriptions of Statutory Nuisance listed in section 79(1) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to include: 'Section 79 (1)(fa) any insects emanating from relevant industrial, trade or business premises and being prejudicial to health or a nuisance'.

Please note, this doesn't apply to insects from domestic premises which can be dealt with under existing nuisance law. Examples of likely sources of insect nuisance complaints will include sewage treatment works, manure/silage storage areas, stagnant ditches and drains, landfill sites, refuse tips, and waste transfer premises.
