Can you wipe out East Devon’s pests?

EDDC seeks tenders for pest control contract.

EAST Devon District Council(EDDC), which deals with around 1,100 requests for domestic pest control treatments a year, would like to hear from businesses interested in providing the service.

A contract for the work is being put out to tender.

Residents pay for the treatments at the point of delivery.

“By far the most frequent reported pest is rats,” said a council spokesman. “To help keep the cost of treatment down, this is subsidised by EDDC so that residents only have to pay �20 plus VAT. “

The closing date for tenders is September 10 and the new one-year contract starts on 1 November 2010.

To find out more, visit or call the council’s environmental health technical officer, Lucy Turner, on (01395) 571645.
