Signs of Rodent Infestation
Signs of rodent infestation are usually obvious. Rat droppings and mouse droppings are the most common, tell-tale signs that you have a problem. You may also hear running and scrabbling noises which could indicate that you have rodents in your walls. Rats and mice nest, so it is also possible that you will find carpets and fabrics that have been chewed up. There may also be noticeable holes that have been gnawed into your walls and floors.
Getting Rid of Rats
Proofing and prevention is key to deterring and getting rid of rats. The methods we use include:
- Drain one-way rat flaps
- Fitting air vent covers
- Blocking holes with anti-rodent material which cannot be chewed through
- Humane traps
- Bait boxes
Our methods will safely and effectively remove any rodents in your home and we have a range of proofing measures to prevent them from returning. This is essential, as rodents are a health hazard; they carry parasites and can pass on a number of diseases. They can also cause extensive damage to buildings and their contents, including the wiring. We are here to help prevent any of these issues from occurring.
We also offer effective mice control services. Through surveying to assessing the extent of the infestation, we can properly choose the most humane method to address the problem. Trust us, you don’t want these cute rodents in your home.
Squirrels often nest in roofs which and can cause damage to both the interior and exterior of your building. We can quickly remove any squirrels, proof the area to prevent entry, and also advise on future preventative measures.
Moles are active all year round but are often more noticeable during wetter seasons, as they will feed just below the turf, harvesting worms and grubs that fall into their feeding runs. During longer dry spells, Moles often burrow deeper into the damp substrate to find food.
They make feeding runs every 4 hours or so, sleeping or extending their territory between times.
If you have a mole problem, there will be large and recognisable mounds in your garden. If you are noticing any of these signs, get in touch with us today for our effective and humane methods and traps that will eradicate moles from your garden.
