Are you worried about rats or mice?

These are worrying times for everyone across Herefordshire and the rest of the UK.

It is true that rodent numbers increase over the Winter as the cold weather sets in and rats and mice look for shelter, food, and water. Do not let a rodent problem add to your worries this winter. Take steps to rodent proof your property and keep the rats and mice at bay.


  1. Secure your property – fill in any holes and remove access points such as gaps around pipes

  2. Keep on top of essential maintenance jobs – clean out those gutters and drains, check your air bricks for damage. Don’t cover your airbricks (unless you use specially designed airbrick covers) as you will reduce your ventilation which is essential to reducing Covid particles

  3. Remove harbourage – clear any clutter and debris, cut back ivy and branches near to your property

  4. Remove accessible food sources – keep wildlife feeding to a minimum; make sure your bin lids are properly sealed

  5. Remove water sources – 70% of a rodent’s diet is water so check for dripping outside taps and hoses and make sure water butts are rodent proof

Once you are on top of this STAY VIGILANT! It is important to identify a rodent problem early on as rats and mice breed rapidly and can cause a significant infestation in a very short period of time.

If you do find you have a rodent infestation give PGM & SON Rodent Control Hereford a call for advice and guidance.
