Mice, Rat & Squirrel Pest Control
In your home or garden, rodents – or any other wildlife – are not only serious risk to your health; they can also damage the fabric and structure of buildings and destroy crops, plants and flowers. The introduction of Rat and squirrel control London services are vital to eradicate the issue.
Rodents need to gnaw constantly as their teeth grow at a highly paced rate throughout their entire lives. This can ultimately lead to damage to things such as: pipe work, electrical cables and actual buildings, causing fires, floods and an expensive repair bill – hence the need for our Rat and squirrel pest control services.
These rodents carry an alarming amount of diseases such as tuberculosis, salmonella, gastro- enteritis, rat bite fever, leptospirosis and numerous others, all of which have serious health implications. Their droppings and fur will also contaminate food preparation surfaces and foodstuffs.
Rodents also breed at an accelerated speed. As a yardstick it is estimated that if two mice were left in a building with a food source for twelve months their population would grow to 2000! With many insurance companies no longer insuring against rodent damage, it is important that this pest is excluded from premises with the latest rodent control techniques before they cause damage.
Contact us today to learn more about possible diseases some of these pests carry and to find out how to exclude them from your property by taking advantage of our Professional Rat and Squirrel Control services.

We are Squirrel Removal Experts
To assess whether you have a squirrel problem, look out for where they may have entered your property, especially along fascia boards and eaves as they can chew holes there very quickly. A nest being raided is another sign of squirrels, as is damage to trees.
Squirrels can cause lots of damage to your home or commercial buildings. This includes damage to lofts and roof voids, where they are known to chew through TV or electric cables. They also sometimes eat eggs, and can cause significant damage to trees by removing vast quantities of bark.
We strongly recommend that you refrain from trying to trap or remove squirrels on your own, as they are prone to biting and scratching. In a severe situation, you may end up with an infected wound that will need medical treatment. In addition, releasing a grey squirrel into the wild is forbidden. Instead, you are required to humanely dispatch it. Red squirrels are to be released into the wild.
Our technicians are fully qualified to carry out squirrel control and removal, which means we take all of the fuss, effort and worry off your shoulders. Please be aware that we do not use poison as part of our squirrel control services. We only employ squirrel traps or shooting as our main methods.
