The areas where Warwick District Council has been called to deal with rats, mice and cockroaches – Coventry Live

Warwick District Council has already received 30 pest control applications since the start of the year - more than one a day.

An FOI request made by CoventryLive revealed the data, which includes residents reporting rats, mice and infestation of cockroaches, bedbugs or fleas in their homes to the council.

One specific postcode area makes up a third of the complaints so far this year.

The most common problem people asked for help for was rats, which made up 24 out of the 30 reports.

Four of the applications were about mice and two were about an infestation of cockroaches, bedbugs or fleas.

Postcode area CV32 made up a third of applications, with 10 households reporting issues with rats and mice during this time.

The postcode covers the upper half of Leamington, Lillington, Cubbington and some surrounding areas.

Eight applications to the council were for help getting rid of rats, while two were for mice.

The next highest number of applications was from CV8, which covers Kenilworth, Stoneleigh, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Baginton and Wolston.

Seven applications have been made there since the start of the year, all of which concerned rats.
