Why Somerset Council Doesn’t Offer Pest Control and What Smyth Pest Control Can Do For You

Hello, Somerset residents! If you’ve ever had the misfortune of dealing with pests, you might have discovered that Somerset Council doesn’t offer pest control services. But don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I’m Warren, the one-man army behind Smyth Pest Control, and I’m here to fill that gap for you.

Somerset Council’s Stance

First off, let’s talk about what the council does and doesn’t do.

Does somerset council offer pest control?

According to their official statement, Somerset Council “does not provide a service for the removal of insects—including bees, wasps, and ants—or birds and small mammals.” Fortunately, other options are on the table. They recommend either DIY treatments or specialist providers. But let’s be honest, DIY can be a bit hit or miss, can’t it?

Laws and Regulations

You might be interested to know that under the Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949, the council does have a duty to keep the area free of rats and mice. In fact, if you’re a landowner, they can serve you an order to clear your property of rats and mice. So if your pests are coming from somewhere else, that’s worth looking into. But for anything else, you’re on your own.

Is DIY pest control a good idea?

The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) strongly recommends professional pest control over DIY solutions. DIY solutions are often ineffective and can even be dangerous if not applied correctly. So, it’s always better to call in a professional.
