Pest Control - Domestic and Commercial Services

Pests can be a nuisance, damage your home, or even endanger your health and safety.

Cheshire East Council employs its own Pest Control Officers (we do not sub-contract) and we can help you on many issues related to common pests.

Pest Treatments

For pricing and advice on pest proofing your home or how you can deal with the pests yourself, see the individual pest treatment pages. Full price list.

Pest Control Contracts

Cheshire East Council offers a competitive pest control contract service for commercial premises. If you are interested in setting up a contract then please see our Pest Control Contracts Page and an officer will be in touch to discuss your requirements.

DIY Treatments

Common household pests can now be treated with products available from hardware stores, garden centres etc. If you decide to treat your own home, make sure the correct product is used and take care to

  • Follow the manufacturers instructions.
  • Wash your hands after using any product.
  • Remove or cover food if treating in the kitchen or food preparation area.
  • Keep children and pets away during the treatment of areas.
  • Store chemicals out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Think "safety" when working at heights and with chemicals and confined spaces

Full Price List

Cheshire East Council provides an in-house pest control service covering a wide range of pest species.  The table below details the pest control services that are available and their respective costs.  In order to reduce administration costs and therefore keep treatment costs competitive, advance payment is preferred and the service is able to process payments over the telephone for debit and credit cards at the time of your call. 

Where an individual (normally a business or a landlord) wishes to be invoiced for a pest control treatment following the treatment itself, an additional administration charge is added to the basic cost.  For 2014-2015 this is £15.50.
