As the dark nights draw in and the temperature started to decline, we’re turning our attention to rodents. Yes, this week we’re looking at rats and mice.
At this time of the year, we see a rapid increase in Rat and Mice call outs as Rodents like the warm just like us humans.
Herefordshire residents should take the time now to pest proof their homes and businesses from Rats and Mice (and other pests for that matter) this Winter. This is particularly critical in 2020 as a national Covid lockdown starts. Householders can put steps in place to try and avoid a rat or mouse infestation. Call us today for help and advice, we are here for you, we are local and family owned, 01981 241 334. Rats and Mice are adaptable, highly mobile and breed rapidly, this combination can make rodent control a difficult task for the untrained individual. For any Rodent infestation, we would always recommend contacting a professional pest control company. We are trained in Rodent control and will have access to a range of professional use rodenticides which are not available to the public.
WHY PEST PROOFING IS ESSENTIAL
Cost effective means of pest control
Reduces the risk to non-target species & protects our wildlife
Reduced impact on the Environment from use of chemicals keeping our planet clean
Easier to identify and treat a pest problem before it becomes a significant infestation as pest infestations can quickly become established.

NOISES – Scratching and crawling and gnawing
MESS – Dropping which are spindle shaped and blunt around 1-2 cm long
SMELLS - Rats have a strong, distinctive, musty and unpleasant urine odour
