Rats and mice

We don't investigate complaints of mice outside, but we're able to investigate complaints regarding rats outside or rats and mice inside premises.

To report a rat or mouse problem please contact the Environmental Health Service on telephone 020 8359 7995 or email nuisance@barnet.gov.uk that includes your address and telephone number as well as details of the premises where the rats or mice have been seen.

The Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 requires land owner/occupier to keep their land free from rats and mice. The Environmental Health Service is able to take enforcement action against a person failing to comply with the legislation.


To report an insect infestation problem please contact the Environmental Health Service on telephone 020 8359 7995 or email nuisance@barnet.gov.uk  that includes your address and telephone number as well as details of the premises where insect infestation exists.

The Public Health Act empowers the Environmental Health Service to deal with insects that are considered to be prejudicial to health such as; cockroaches and bed bugs. If you are an owner of a property you will need to make arrangements to have an insect infestation treated before it spreads and effects neighbouring premises.

We accept payment by card, cash or a cheque made out to London Borough of Barnet. If you receive benefits and claim a discount on your pest treatment, we will need your National Insurance number and proof of benefit entitlement before treatment begins.

Our health and safety and environmental measures will have minimal impact on the environment or risk to pets and other non-target wildlife.
