Removal of major rat infestation in loft and cavities.

I would highly recommend this company who solved our rat infestation that two other companies simply couldn't including the council!! Our problem had been a longstanding issue with numerous entry points into the loft and cavities for which previous companies simply did not investigate! Enter Louise from Pestkill Ltd who was absolutely outstanding and a complete credit to this company! Her determination and will is second to none and we could not have eradicated this issue without her! Simply the best rat catcher in England!! We simply cannot thank you enough!

Clearing of rats in a house.

Brilliant. I cannot recommend this company highly enough, Louise was brilliant, she knew I was beside myself about having rats in my home, she calmed my fears and did a very good job, explaining all the time. She was polite, very helpful and kind, thank you Louise.

How am I affected?

Rodents can cause extensive damage to buildings and equipment in warehouses, granaries, restaurants, and bakeries and the home; indeed anywhere food is handled or stored. Rodents can gnaw through wood and enlarge masonry openings to gain entrance into buildings. In the construction of their nests, rodents destroy all types of materials and can cause fires by chewing through insulation on electrical wires.

Rodents are a serious hazard to public health. Aside from contaminating food with their droppings and urine, such diseases as salmonella bacteria (food poisoning), leptospira (jaundice), and typhus are commonly spread by rats and mice.

How can I tell if I have an infestation?

Top Tips

  • Rodents are attracted to compost bins, as they are warm and full of food. Place wire mesh (1cm x 1cm) under the base of your compost bin or even better put it on a concrete base to stop rats getting in under the bin.
  • Keep rubbish, in particular discarded food stuffs, in sealed bins with well fitting tops, and keep long grass and bushes to a minimum to reduce places for them to live.
  • Ensure that drainage is in good repair; that drains are not broken and that inspection chambers are in good condition.
  • Inspect your property for any holes or faults in the fabric of the building.
  • Do not loose scatter food for birds in the garden, use a feed container.
