Pests and infestation
North Devon Council does not provide a pest control service to domestic premises. You are advised to look in a business directory like Yellow Pages for a suitable contractor. Unfortunately, we are not able to recommend specific contractors.
Although we do not have a duty to provide pest control services, we do have enforcement duties, along with individuals, relating to pests on land.
We can investigate:
- pests arising from neighbouring land or property
- public health issues – for example, pests in a shop, restaurant or workplace
In these cases, we may take enforcement action.
