Squirrels are a slightly different form of nuisance, as they are animals, not insects, and so they have a ‘cute appeal’ that means many find it difficult to see them as pests in need of controlling. Whilst they may appear soft, fluffy and harmless, like rats, the common grey squirrel is host to a variety of nasty diseases, and were more or less single-handedly responsible for wiping out the much-loved British red squirrel species.
Squirrels like to nest in loft spaces, tearing at loft insulation and running around to find materials to build warm nests; in addition to the serious noise pollution they will cause in your property, squirrels are extremely territorial, so when they build their in your loft, this can present a real problem, as they will lose their cuteness and become extremely aggressive - even more so if they have baby squirrels. Blocking off their access points - usually about the size of a tennis ball - often doesn’t work as, again like rats, they can chew through and scratch at almost anything (including soft metals, tiles, joists and hard wood) to re-gain entry, making them a real nuisance and very difficult to get rid of.
This is one pest where professional help is absolutely essential. If you notice noises, damage to your loft insulation, or droppings - these are larger and more rounded than rat droppings, approx 8-12mm - that you suspect have been caused by squirrels, don’t try and catch them and release them outside - this is actually illegal in the UK - give us a call. We will use traps and poisons to humanely exterminate all squirrels nesting in your property, and then effectively block off their access points so that you won’t be targeted again.Contact Us
There are two main types of mice commonly found in infestations. The larger, long-tailed, field mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus), which is around two inches long and light brown, and the smaller brown/grey house mouse (Mus domesticus).
Mice droppings are often black, rod shaped and 3-6mm long. Fresh droppings will be soft and moist. Each mouse can leave approximately 40 to 50 droppings per day. Common places to find mouse droppings are under the kitchen sink, around central heating boilers and in roof spaces.
Smear marks are dark grey marks left on surfaces by repeated contact with the oils in mouses fur.
Mice gnaw continually on materials such as wood, carpets, paper, pipe cables and furniture. Check for damage to foodstuffs in cupboards. Mice have been known to spread some nasty diseases to humans such as Salmonella, Listeria, which can cause food poisoning.
We have the necessary expertise to eliminate the mice around your property, our fully trained technicians will carry out a full inspection of your property before we proceed with the actual treatment.Contact Us
Rats are a particularly troublesome pest, as they carry more severe health risks, commonly spreading diseases and parasites, which are carried in their droppings, hair and urine and that are easily transferred to humans. They also bite, so if you see one, you should never attempt to touch or catch it - call in the professionals. Rats are extremely agile and resourceful, and can enter you property through a variety of means and spaces; they can squeeze through surprisingly small spaces, and will chew through all manner of materials to gain access to your property, so measures should always be put in place to deter them:
