A new service means that residents and businesses in Northumberland can now arrange for pest control treatments to be carried out on a Saturday.

This new service makes it easier for residents and local businesses to access pest control services during the busy summer months and will run until the end of September.

A full range of services will be available, including treatments for ants, wasps, bed bugs, fleas, rats and mice.

Northumberland County Council’s pest control team normally runs on weekdays, however their new Saturday service is available to offer more opportunity for anyone with pest problems to get the control they need at a time convenient to them.

All services provided on a Saturday will be chargeable, but treatments for rats and mice within homes will remain free of charge on weekdays.

Northumberland County Council’s pest control team offers a flexible, value for money service for residents and business which includes free advice over the phone and a pest identification service.

Those suffering with pests can contact the pest control service by logging on to to find out more information and book and pay for treatments.

Alternatively customers can call 0845 600 6400 or your local number or visit one of the customer contact centres.
