Our buildings are ideal for rats and mice because they provide food, water, warmth and shelter. For these reasons you may notice rats and mice inside buildings more in the cooler months.

If you need to get in touch with us, simply call 131 546 and our friendly staff will take your details.

Mice & Rats can…

What we do to treat Rats..

Set up a guaranteed program to control rodents in a building and it’s surrounding environment and advise how you can help reduce future problems.

Inspect

We will carry out a survey and report our findings.

Bait

We will set up rodent bait stations at various strategic locations in and around the buildings. These rodent bait stations securely hold the bait within the station which means that secondary poisoning of non target animals are greatly reduced to almost zero.

Traps

We can set up specially designed traps where baits cannot be used.

Tracking Powders

Sometimes we may need to use rodent tracking powders.

Signs of Rodent Activity include:

Droppings

New rodent droppings are shiny and pliable and within 2-3 days become dull and hard. Mouse droppings are 3-6mm long and have pointed ends. Rat droppings are up to 12mm long and have blunted ends

Rubmarks

These are greasy smear marks and they are caused when rodents rub their fur against vertical surfaces such as walls.

Burrows

Rat burrows are normally found next to waterways and buildings.

Sounds

Mice and Rats are normally heard at night and they include squeaking in the case of mice and clawing and gnawing in the case of rats.

Nest

A rodent nest is usually made of rags and paper and cardboard.

Gnawing

Mice gnaw to keep their incisors down and use wood, metal, conduit and cables in order to do this. When mice gnaw cables for instance this can expose bare wires and cause short circuits or fires.

What you can do with our rat help and advice…

Sanitation

You can reduce food and water available to rodents. One way you can help is to avoid keeping rubbish indoors overnight.

Proofing

We can advise you on ways you can help to proof your home against rodent entry. This may include simple measures such as fixing mesh over holes to prevent rodent entry.
