Natural England Revokes Three General Licences license revoke article img 1320x800px 1068x647

Natural England is revoking three general licences for controlling certain wild birds as of Thursday 25 April 2019.

These licences (GL 04/05/06) cover 16 species of birds including several members of the crow family, Canada goose, some gulls and pigeons.

The change follows a legal challenge to the way the licences have been issued, which could mean users who rely on them are not acting lawfully.

Natural England is undertaking new licensing assessments to support lethal control of certain birds in defined situations, such as to prevent serious damage to livestock from carrion crow and to preserve public health and safety from the impacts of feral pigeons. It intends to start issuing these licences on gov.uk from the week commencing 29 April when more details will be available.

If people need to take action in the meantime they will need to apply for an individual licence, using a simplified process which will be available on gov.uk from 25 April.

Anyone exercising lethal control of birds after Thursday 25 April 2019 without taking the above steps will not be covered by a general licence and could be committing an offence.

If you are unsure what you should do, visit the Natural England licensing webpage for more information and advice.

He even took off his shoes before coming inside so he didn't track in any dirt. My wife appreciated that! Now the only bugs I see are dead and the frequency of seeing the dead ones is decreasing. So that is great! I would recommend everyone use Texas Bug Masters.

Both worked quickly and diligently to get the treatment done in a timely manner! And for a great price! I would recommend them time and time again! The online payment was a huge plus since I was running errands while they completed my treatment! Thanks you guys!

He will take care of the job! He will answer any questions you may have, cause I had a ton, lol and he just let me follow him around while he worked and reassured me that those little demons would no longer live in my house. I appreciated that!

  • review rating 5  Natural England Revokes Three General Licences stars 5 yellow  Excellent customer service and very attentive. I filled out a written message on their website since it is Labor Day weekend not expecting a call till Tuesday. Within 2 hours he had called us and made an appointment to come give us a quote. We met him and he is very knowledgeable and explained everything about our bug problem. He’s fast, and does the job right. It was a pleasure doing business with Texas Bug Masters.
