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
  • Or use Antenno (a FREE mobile app, the quickest way to tell us about a problem). Download it here
