Rodent Proofing

Rodent Removal and Control

The first thing to point out on rodent proofing is that modern rodent control is becoming ever more complex. There are a variety of reasons and constantly changing circumstances. The traditional diet of grain based foodstuffs has been replaced by high fat remains of fast food products which has altered the feeding nature of rodents in urban environments. Traditional proprietary bait bases are not nearly as effective as they once were, and environmental concerns coupled with new EU directives prohibits the wholesale use of rodenticides.

The good news is that truly professional pest controllers have the ability to think laterally in order to provide control measures which are not based on chemical options. Control measures which are environmentally friendly and based on sound detection techniques. Proofing techniques are an integral part of our rodent control service.

This actually forms part of our planned maintenance contract service and is something we provide as a result of our planned monitoring programme. It should be pointed out that those areas which require proofing are carefully selected as a result of innovative detection techniques; the use of luminescent tracking dust, infra red surveillance cameras and senior inspections, all designed to track movements and link up with structural defects.

As the title suggests this refers to longer term structural improvements or even defects such as missing interceptor caps in the intermediate sewer system for instance. We will constantly report on the need for such improvements on our regular and senior inspection reports which again form part of our planned maintenance contract services.

A feature of these reports is they are backed up by photographic evidence and provide you with the option of carrying out the work yourself or allowing us to take charge of the project. The success of our rodent control service depends upon an intimate knowledge of your premises and the need for a dedicated technician and support of a management team.
