Pest Control for Rats and Mice
Rat and small rodent infestations are capable of causing extreme distress and are a high health risk. The most common type of rat is the Brown Rat which is able to gnaw and burrow through the most durable of materials putting it in a high bracket of dangerous pests.
Do you want to stop mice and rats coming into your house or property?
With our extensive building and trades experience, C Hanlon Pest Control can help.
Being an all-trades company we know how buildings work and how rodents find their way in and out of properties. We can identify all the holes, gaps and conduits that rodents use to gain access and, crucially, we know the most effective way to try to block them.
Did you know?
Rats and rodents like mice are most active at night meaning that they are rarely seen although evidence of home or premises invasion is present, such as their droppings, their ammonia-like smell, damage to wood, plastic and torn food packaging.
Why Are Rats and Mice Pests?
Rats are disease carriers and pose very serious threats to the health of humans and pets. Diseases they carry include E. Coli, Tuberculosis, Salmonella and Cryptosporidoisis all of which can be fatal of passed onto humans or animals. Like rats, mice carry disease in their parasites and droppings. Breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse excrement has been linked to the deadly hantavirus.
The most common disease related to the rat is Leptospirosis or Weils Disease contained within rat urine. If humans come into contact orally or through an open wound the consequences can result in severe illness or fatality. Symptoms are flu-like initially but can lead to far greater issues.
Rats have the ability to swim up sewer pipes into toilets and both rats and mice will gnaw through all sorts of building material to get to a food source.
Our expert technicians will assess the extent of the problem and propose a plan of action.
We follow the E.R.D (Exclusion, Restriction, Destruction ) methods of controlling:
- Exclusion – Proofing (keep them out).
- Restriction – Good housekeeping, vegetation management.
- Destruction – Baits, traps, anti-coagulant, rodenticides.
Our technicians assess the extent of the problem, laying baits or traps where necessary. Baits and traps need to be checked regularly and the materials removed at the end of each treatment.
Often, more than one treatment will be required to ensure optimum control. These forms of treatments are generally applied for all types of rodents.
