Pest control

We ensure land is free from vermin and provide general advice on pest control issues.

We do not offer a pest control service, but we may take enforcement action where appropriate to ensure that occupiers keep their land free from rats and mice.

Identification of Pests

We do offer an identification service for unidentified pests which you may have found in your home. If you would like to take advantage of this service, please send a (dead) sample in a sealed container  to us at SKDC, Council Offices, St Peters Hill, Grantham, NG31 6PZ, marked for the attention of Environmental Health Services. Please remember to include your contact details.
