The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture’s pest control service exists to help manage the nuisance, damage and spread of disease that public health pests can cause.
Treatments for public health pests (rats, mice, wasps and cockroaches are free of charge in all domestic premises and farms.
Commercial premises are advised to seek guidance from a private Pest Control provider.
The Department understands the importance of bees, both locally and globally. As such, we would recommend you contact the Isle of Man Beekeepers Federation, who may be able to recommend a beekeeper to remove active swarms.
As the Island's local authorities look to regenerate town centres, the question of pigeons and the associated 'mess' they produce is frequently raised. Although pigeons are not considered public health pests, the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture has produced a guidance document to help local authorities, businesses and Government Departments control pigeon populations in the worst affected areas through non-lethal means.
Please note we do not treat commercial premises and would advise contacting a private contractor to see if they can be of assistance. There are several local companies that can be found via an internet search or the phone book.
