If your property is infested with rats, mice, squirrels, or any other species of the rodent family, it's a great idea to take action against them and rodent-proof your property as soon as possible. Neglecting the issue will only make things worse.
Whether you're the owner of a residential property or a property where business activities are conducted, pest problems are never fun to deal with. For residential properties, a rodent infestation can lead to an increase in health risks (rodents carry many diseases) as well as structural damage.
If your commercial property has failed to control rodents, on top of the above issues, there is more that you need to be concerned about. This is especially true if you're dealing with food and beverage. In case of a standard health and safety inspection, if the presence or a sign of mice, rats, squirrels, or other rodents is found, that can lead to devastating consequences for your business.
The result of having a rodent infestation can lead to damage to reputation, loss of revenue, fines, and even legal action. If the problem is bad enough, your business may even get shut down permanently.
Getting a rodent infestation under control on your own can be extremely tricky, especially if you work/live on a large property and have little to no experience in pest control. That's why hiring a team of experienced professionals to proof your property and stop rodents from getting inside your property is essential. Below, we'll go over a few of the most popular services our clients hire us for:
If you are dealing with a different type of intrusive pest that we didn't mention, don't worry. Our approach can pest-proof your property for the pest that you're concerned about too. Let's look at how we manage to put a stop to rodent infestations for each and every one of our customers.
First, our team will inspect and analyse every corner of your property, from the roof to the skirting boards to identify all access points
Once the inspection is finalised, a plan of action will be drawn up
Once the plan of action is in place, the rat, squirrel, and mouse-proofing procedure will be carried out by a team of trained, fully insured and experienced technicians.
Once our proofing technicians are finished, they will explain to you what was done, and what you can do to prevent pest infestation of this kind in the future.
Rodents can squeeze their way to gain access to your property through surprisingly small gaps that you wouldn't even suspect. They are also great climbers (especially squirrels). Based on our vast experience as pest control experts, some of the most common entry points for rodents include the following:
Holes or gaps in walls, doors, floors, roofs, and ceilings
Chimneys and fireplaces
Openings around vents, utility, and drain pipes
Damaged or missing weather stripping
For every one of the entry points that rodents can fit through, there is a solution you can take advantage of and prevent rodents from making their way inside your property. The best way to go about isolating your property from rodents is to:
Identify and seal all entry points with a durable wire mesh and caulk
Install weather strips to seal all of the gaps under your doors and windows
Install wire mesh around the foundation of the building to keep rodents from having the chance to come close to your property
Once all of the above is taken care of, you can go a step further and set traps and bait stations to control the rodent population in and around your property. If you want to effectively and permanently proof your building from rodents, it's always a good idea to get trained technicians who can rodent-proof your property to an industry standard.
That would depend on the size of your property, the extent of the rodent infestation you're dealing with, and the specific proofing methods that will be used for your individual case. On average, to mouse-proof your property, it will take our team a few hours up to a full day to cover all access points.
