    I have just read the item about pest control being axed, but not for council owned properties including council houses. Don’t council tenants pay the same council tax as home owners?

    The council have always been reluctant to involve themselves in Pest Control on private properties, and when they do they have charged for their services. Does anyone know if council tenants pay for pest control?

    If wcbc are getting rid of pest control does this mean we have to put up with this lot begging in town.��

    My parents house has always had an issue with mice, because of 2 residents close by with pidgeons. Each year, they have phoned the pest control who have come out and laid traps. The last time my mum phoned them (about 3 years ago now), the guy informed her that they were charging all residents for pest control.

    If you own your own home, you would have been paying for this service anyway. SOmeone whinged about what their council tax was paying for, yet you don’t get pest control in your home for free.. your home is your problem.

    What home owners seem to forget is that the council are the landlord of council tenants. It is their responsibility to ensure the properties are up to a certain standard. Now I don’t know whether this includes pests, but as stated, council tenants paid so what’s the big fuss? lol

    Just had a look on council website, rats and mice treatment is free for tenants but everything else is chargeable at a discounted rate Pest Control Services & Charges – WCBC
