Our councils provide a wide array of services to help households of all shapes and sizes. This service includes the provision of pest control. The team at Hampshire Bird and Pest Solutions take a look at Council provided pest control services and the differences households can expect to observe.
Some government services and solutions are offered free of charge, this does extend into the pest control area however it's usually means-tested. Households in receipt of means-tested benefits and support may qualify for funded pest control depending on the level of service provided by the responsible local authority. In all other instances it's either a chargeable service from the council, or something which is provided by qualified third-party professional.
Council provided, funded pest control usually covers rodent related infestations and problems. Households with other pest problems are usually advised to seek private professional pest control assistance. Some local councils offer a chargeable solution beyond rodents, but this can vary depending on the responsible local authority.
Like many government services, council funded pest control can have unsought surges in demand. This is primarily due to the seasonal nature of the industry and the resource available to tackle the problems reported by households. In times of high-demand such as the start and end of summer, and at times during the winter, council provided pest control may suffer from high demand. During these times of high demand it's likely that initial inspections may take longer to carry out, to the extent of weeks and months. In quieter periods you could expect initial inspections within a few days to a week, with subsequent work following afterwards.
Private pest control will almost always result in a much faster resolution of your pest control problem. If your pest problem is urgent and you're looking for a rapid resolution, professional controllers may be more suitable.
