Problems With Rodents

It’s that time of the year when you may find problems with rodents. Particularly, rats and mice.

As the Spring days start to warm up, rats and mice will be out and about looking for bed and breakfast. Seriously, problems with rodents are a growing issue and will get worse as they search for food and places to live.

Why Rats And Mice Are a Real Problem?

When mice gain access to property they cause all sorts of problems. Nest building causes damage, particularly to access points, and once inside the building, they can do untold – and expensive – damage to plastic water pipes and electrical wiring.

They also contaminate food and spread disease.

There is lots of information about how you might get rid of mice and rats, but a do-it-yourself solution is certainly not the best way. It can also put children and pets at risk, particularly if you use poisons. More often than not, it is unreliable.

The best approach you can use is to call an expert, who will ensure that all treatment is carried out humanly and within the appropriate legal requirements.

Remember, mice and rats breed very quickly. A failure to remove them from will lead to the growth of large populations over a very short period of time.

PROBLEMS WITH RODENTS? How will I know if I have mice?

There are lots of things you can look out for if you think you have rodents. These might include:

  • Scratching sounds within ceiling areas, walls and alcoves
  • Holes gnawed in stored newspapers and magazines, material or cardboard packaging
  • Torn bags where food is stored
  • Droppings and odours
  • Flattened grass where the rodents have passed to and fro regularly
  • Piles of nesting materials
  • If it’s quiet then you are quite likely to see one

Stop Them Coming Back

At Anston Pest Control we employ the most suitable equipment and treatments necessary.

Part of the service offered by Anston Pest Control is making sure that once the pests have been removed, that they do not return. If you wish, we will continue to visit and monitor the situation for you.
