Treating a pest problem yourself

If you would prefer to treat a problem yourself we can offer some guidance and assistance depending on the type of pest involved. See the pest-specific relevant advice leaflet in the section in the 'further information’ section.

If you live in rented accommodation it is recommended that you notify your landlord if you are experiencing a pest problem as they may be able to assist, especially where there are common or shared parts to the accommodation, such as shared kitchens, hallways, stairwells, etc. This is especially relevant with insect pests such as cockroaches which may inhabit vents, duct and pipework which may be beyond the responsibility of an individual tenant.
