Who do you report a pest control problem to?

Pest Control including bees, wasps, rats, mice, maggots, fleas and bedbugs.

We run a Pest Control service that can help you get rid of rats, mice and any other vermin in your property.

Contact OneCALL on 0345 8 507 507 or visit any service access point, who will arrange for the team to come to your property.

This service is free to WDH tenants but you will be charged for non-emergencies and false calls.

Bees and wasps

If you have a large number of bees in your home, you are advised to stay away from them as much as possible, as they are likely to leave you alone if you leave them alone.  

 If you think you have a bees’ nest or an infestation of around 20 bees in or near your home, please contact  OneCALL 0345 8 507 507 to arrange an emergency appointment. Bees outside your home will be treated as a normal appointment.

If you think you have a wasps’ nest or an infestation of around 20 wasps in or near your home, please contact our Pest Control Team via OneCALL on 0345 8 507 507 to arrange an emergency appointment. 

You can use a fly or bee killer spray to kill bees and wasps and keep any windows or doors closed to prevent more entering your home, but you must not attempt to deal with a bees’ or wasps' nest yourself.

Maggots

Generally caused by food waste, especially during periods of warm weather.

If you find maggots in your home, you must empty your bin immediately. Maggots can also be caused by food waste dropped on the floor, and this needs to be removed and cleaned immediately, you can throw the maggots away from your home at the far end of your garden or communal garden and birds will eat them.  Bins in your home or floors where food has been spilt must be cleaned using water and cleaning substances such as Dettol. Outdoor bins should be cleaned using water and cleaning substances or bleach.

Ants

If you have a large number of ants in your home, you can treat them using an ant powder of liquid ant killer. These can be bought from most shops. 

You are not advised to put talcum powder down, as this only makes a mess.
