How to get pest control licence

So How to get pest control licence?

Pest control is a regulated industry in the UK, and you need to be licensed in order to operate in it. The government agency responsible for licensing pest controllers is called the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

It’s also possible to apply for an exemption certificate if your work will only involve dealing with dead birds or vermin on domestic premises. If you do not have a certificate then the law requires that you employ a licensed pest controller to deal with any infestations of pests on your premises.

You will need to contact a local council-run trading standards department, environmental health office or similar organisation for information on how to obtain a licence or exemption certificate. Local councils have different policies for licensing pest controllers so it’s important to contact the relevant department.

In all cases, you will need a certificate of registration from the HSE. This is a nationally recognised qualification and it must be issued by an approved centre. The HSE website lists approved qualifications centres in England, Wales and Scotland.

I found mouse droppings but no mouse

Mouse droppings are a telltale sign of their presence. If you find droppings, then there is a high likelihood that you have mice in your home. Droppings usually appear cylindrical with tapered ends and measure about 1/2″ to 3/4″. They are sometimes found in clusters along walls or ceilings because the rodents use pathways that they have travelled many times. Keep in mind that seeing droppings does mean you have an infestation.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
