Animal and insect pests

Let's face it, some animals and pests can be hōhā. If there are bees, wasps, or vermin in our public land, parks, and reserves, get in touch and we'll sort it out.

If you see any vermin, wasps or bee nests in a public place, let us know and we will deal with them. (Owners are responsible for removing these kinds of pests from private property.)  

There are a number of ways to report animal and insect pests:

  • phone us on (04) 237 5089
  • fill in and submit the form below
  • use Antenno (a free mobile app you can use to tell us about something that needs fixing or report something directly to us. Once you've downloaded the app, just go to the new 'Your reports' menu, and add a report to tell us about it). Read more about Antenno

Fix it please

If you wish to send any photos in support of your request or advice, please email them separately to enquiries@poriruacity.govt.nz and we'll attach them to your record in our systems.

For pests in regional parks, which are owned by Greater Wellington Regional Council, phone 0800 496 734 or go to their Pest Animals webpage.
