West Dunbartonshire Council takes action, as necessary, to ensure that the district is kept free from rats, mice and other pests

The Council's Pest Control Service can provide you with advice and assistance if you are experiencing problems with rodents, insects or birds.

We offer a comprehensive and cost-effective range of services, including the control of rats, mice, insects, wasps, fleas and bed bugs.  Our team of pest control officers are fully trained in the safe use of insecticides, rodenticides and pesticides. Most treatments are carried out on a chargeable basis.  The standard charge for Pest Control Treatment for privately owned domestic properties is £54.00. This includes a non-returnable call out charge of £27. The charge for commercial properties is £93.50 + materials.  Treatment for Council owned properties is charged to the Housing Department and for Housing Associations the treatment is charged to the relevant association.

The Guide to Pest Control document provides general information on the more common types of pests including their distribution, significance, life cycle and control.
