Corona virus update for all Harborough District Council Customers
Covid 19- Coronavirus epidemic.
Due to the lockdown and in the interests of keeping our customers and staff safe the service is now being run on a skeleton service for Rats, Mice and Wasps nests only where we can exercise social distancing or treat infestation externally.
We currently are not providing a service for other pests but are happy to advise residents wherever we can. For general enquiries for other pests please contact us via email in the first instance and we will respond as soon as possible.
The charges listed below are offered to all domestic residents. Some additional costs for mileage may be applied outside HDC area.
You must quote “Code HDC” to our staff when booking to obtain HDC discount.
Please note that since April 2012 there is no longer a free service for rodent control and we receive no funding from HDC for this service, we continue however to offer the lowest cost service to residents and still provide concessionary rates to those on low incomes under contract with HDC.
Concessionary rates for HDC Customers only apply to the following ;
Please note that concessionary rates only apply to the person who is the owner of the property or legal tenant (not relatives or dependents living with them)

Please Note there is a call out charge of £35.00 for identification of a pest only or where any bee species is misidentified as wasps. This call out charge will include advice and a survey as to the best way to resolve the issue.
