Licences will only be issued for exceptional circumstances, and where all alternative methods of rodent control are ineffective or impractical.


There are 2 types of licence: 

  1. Class licence – you register in advance to use this licence.

  2. Individual licences – you apply for a single-use licence at the time of need, to deal with a particular problem, at a particular site.

Individual licences will only be issued in exceptional circumstances where there is a high risk to public health & safety and where all alternative methods of rodent control are ineffective.

NB – restaurants, take-aways, dwelling houses are not considered as exceptional circumstances.


There is a cost associated with both types of licence:

Class Licence: New User Registration

£180

Class Licence: Report of Action (at each site the licence is used)
