Had quite a surprise finding this pair whilst surveying an attic!

Garden water features as well as bird feeders are often irresistible to unwanted furry visitors!

Drainage faults are the root cause of a large proportion of persistent rat issues.

When used correctly Fenn traps are an efficient and humane method of dealing with both rats & squirrels.

Rodent control: We offer one off treatment plans for both domestic and commercial premises. We also offer a range of rodent monitoring contracts as well as general service contracts. Rodenticide containing bait stations, various traps as well as physical proofing measures are all utilized to their fullest potential, tailored to the individual nature of each infestation. We also have motion detecting night vision as well as thermal imaging technology at our disposal to help us get to the bottom of less typical infestations. We also fit industrial brush strips (as well as electronic fly killers and fly screens to combat flying insect issues). Whether you are plagued by rats, mice, moles or squirrels we'll deal with any infestation swiftly and safely. Mice Both common house mice (Mus musculus) and field mice (Apodemus slvaticus) as well as several other species of mouse commonly infest homes and businesses throughout the UK. Their breeding seasons span most of the year with 6-8 litters of up to 14 offspring under ideal conditions. Most will reach maturity in around 35 days and as such populations of mice are capable of expanding quite rapidly. Trapping and / or baiting can be combined to quickly eliminate a mouse infestation however it is important to identify and block any potential internal / external points of entry post treatment in order to prevent re-infestation. A mouse can quite easily squeeze through 4mm gap, often such gaps are found around pipework as well as on broken / unmeshed vents allowing access to cavity walls and living spaces. We always advise on appropriate proofing measures and carry out most proofing work ourselves if you do not feel confident carrying out the work yourself. If particularly bait and trap averse mice are causing an issue rodenticidal contact gels are used to achieve control. Under current legislation it is usually required that all accessible unconsumed rodenticidal bait is removed once a rodent issue is dealt with. During treatment bait must be checked and replenished at regular intervals and carcasses searched for frequently (especially important when baiting outside) to prevent resistance as well as rondenticides entering the wider ecosystem via predation / scavenging (secondary poisoning). We always adhere strictly to legislation and best industry practices when carrying out rodent work to achieve control as safely and as quickly as possible. Rats Rats are highly social and intelligent creatures but unfortunately when living in close proximity to humans they can be destructive and transmit disease making control measures necessary. The Brown Rat (Rattus norvegicus) is by far more common than its smaller cousin the black rat (Rattus rattus) in the UK. Quite often, simply eliminating a food source such as insecurely stored waste food combined with proofing work (often drain related ) can reduce rat numbers in a building / locality dramatically however in many instances tapping and /or baiting is required to quickly bring rat issues under control. Advice on proofing and possible attractants is always given and baiting / trapping is carried out in a safe, legal and effective manner tailored to each individual infestation. Squirrels The Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) often invades lofts, particularly during the breeding seasons in early spring and late summer. As well as being incredibly noisy to share a house with squirrels, as with rats, can be very destructive, damaging roofs and chewing through cables. The only rodenticide licensed to use in controlling squirrels is the multi-dose bait warfarin which usually requires around 10 days of continuous uptake to build up to lethal doses in a squirrel. Due to this limitation as well as the environmental impact of poisoned carcasses it is usually most appropriate to attempt to trap squirrels using powerful and humane Fenn and Kania traps before resorting to baiting. As with rats and mice, proofing measures are usually critical in preventing re-infestation. Also see: Some information on the safe use and modes of action of commonly used rodenticides.
