Rodent Pest Control

Rodents – Rats and Mice

Rodents, such as Rats or Mice, can cause untold damage to your building and its assets leaving your premises in ruins and your reputation tarnished. As with all pests, prevention is better than cure when it comes to dealing with rodent control.

In either case, with any rat infestation or mice infestation, the best solution is to act fast.

Not only can mice and rats cause the spread of diseases and infections such as Weil’s disease, Salmonella and Trichinosis, but their presence can also cause serious damage to your health and hygiene reputation.

Rats and mice are a well known breeding ground for fleas, and are one of the main carriers, and causes of spreading fleas, into homes, and other buildings.

More potential harm from rodents is damage to stock and buildings, caused by the rodent’s sharp teeth gnawing through cables, plastic, wooden doors and even mild steel.

Rats and Mice have been known to cause flooding in buildings, due to constant gnawing of water pipes, and severe damage to electrical circuits, causing fire risks, especially by rats in roof areas, so getting rid of rats and mice from your property is essential.

Rat Control In Your Home Or Garden

If rats are getting into your home, even if they are not entering a direct living area, you need a rat control specialist. Any rat problem inside the home must be treated urgently.

Rats in the garden and other external areas can also be high risk, particularly in areas used by your children or pets. It is important to get rid of rats in the garden to reduce the risk of them trying to enter your home, searching for food or shelter.

Special care is needed for houses with integral garages or with dog or cat flaps as rats can use these to get into your home.

A Rodent-Free Food Chain

The food industry has pest control requirements that go beyond most other businesses in the UK, stemming from government-derived legislation, EU directives and self-regulatory standards and customer audited standards. The most stringent requirement is for consumer confidence in all aspects of food hygiene.

Food comes with an expectation that the company who made or supplied it does not suffer from pest infestations, such as rats and mice. While unclean premises may simply lose customers to a more hygienic rival, a major pest infestation in a food production facility may cause consumers serious illness or even kill them.

A rat pest control service, and a mice control service is required, not only to effectively monitor, control and eradicate rodents, but to meet auditing body’s requirements and to prevent more rodent problems in the future.

The Law

Mice and rats can cause extreme fear and distress when it is known they are in peoples working premises. This can contribute to loss of working days and even have an effect on the health of certain individuals. Individuals and businesses have a legal obligation under many acts and regulations to ensure that their premises are pest free.

  • Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949
  • Health Services and Public Health Act 1968
  • Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
  • Food and Environment Protection Act 1985
  • Food and Safety Act 1990
