Rats and Mice Control

Rats live anywhere where there is food, water and shelter. They pose a significant health risk to people and pets and carry common diseases such as Salmonella, Weil’s Disease, E.coli, Cryptosporidiosis and Tuberculosis.

Our professional BPCA certified technicians provide effective pet control solutions to get rid of all rodents in your home”, commercial or industrial premise quickly and safely.

Rodents will eat almost anything and contaminate your food with urine and droppings. They carry germs and bacteria and when comfortable, breed at an astonishing rate. Please call us to discuss a quick and efficient solution to eradicate your rodent problem.

There are two main species of rats which are common in the UK, these are the black rat (Rattus Rattus) and the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Both types of rat will find food and shelter where possible then will go on to breed, so fast control is the best form of control.
