Pest Control

Please note that the Co-op is legally obliged to treat only the following pests within the dwellings that it manages:

  • Category 1 pests:
    • Pharaoh Ants
    • Mice
    • Cockroaches
    • Rats
    • Wasps

The Co-op will not treat the following (and has adopted the policy of the London Borough of Brent on this category of pests):

  • Moths
  • Woodlice
  • Garden Ants,
  • Bed Bugs

The Co-op will only arrange for treatment if the occupier is willing to pay for this service.

In treating Category 1 pests, two separate treatments, two weeks apart will occur. In some cases the resident may have to evacuate the dwelling for up to 3 hours.
