Pest control

We, in common with many other councils, have ceased provision of its discretionary pest control service. We do however provide advice and information to the public on pest control matters.

Whilst we have ceased our discretionary pest control service we are regularly contacted by members of the public for advice on pests and their control. For further information on the common pests we are contacted about please click on the links below:

Honey Bee Swarms

Boston Borough Council is often contacted for advice about swarms of honey bees that have appearred in peoples gardens. Swarms will normally move on and should not present a danger if left alone. There are however local beekeepers that can help that are members of the British Bee Keepers Association Website.

The Britsh Bee Keepers Association gives advice on identifying honey bees and provides a link to contacting a local beekeeper who may be able to remove the swarm. Bee keepers may charge for their services however this is usually a small fee to cover their travel costs etc. You should discuss any costs directly with the beekeeper beforehand. Follow the link to the British Bee Keepers Association Website and enter your postcode to find a local beekeeper.
