Pest control contract up for grabs in East Devon
Applicant sought in Sidmouth and Ottery
A PEST control contract for East Devon has been put out to tender.
The district council wants to hear from businesses in Sidmouth and Ottery interested in providing the service to residents.
The authority is asked to deal with around 1,000 requests for treatment each year - paid for by householders at the point of delivery.
“By far, the most frequent reported pest is rats,” said a council spokesman.
