Environmental Impact      

Hyndburn Borough Council and its technicians feel very strongly on the impact the pest control industry can have on the environment. The Council only uses approved rodenticides and insecticides and applies methods to reduce the risk to wildlife and animals other than those targeted. We will give you free advice and information on pest prevention and proofing methods, to reduce the need for further treatment.

Hyndburn Borough Council is committed to The Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) Under the banner “Think Wildlife” CRRU promotes best practice and responsible rodent control, thereby protecting wildlife from rodenticide exposure.

The CRRU Code promotes responsible use of rodenticides and Best Practice outlines how rodenticides are to be used to minimise exposure to wildlife.
