Our Rodent Pest Control Services

A rodent is typically known to be a small mammal with behavioural tendencies such as gnawing and nesting. In regards to pest control, the rodent group includes creatures such as rats, mice, rabbits, and squirrels. We can also deal with foxes, glis glis, and garden moles, which have similar characteristics to rodents.

Rodent Control Products

When it comes to rodent control, there are many products that can be used by the Pest.co.uk team. Below, we’ll run through some of the most common products you could expect to see during our visit out to your property.

Rodent traps: More professionally referred to as mechanical traps, or colloquially known as mouse traps, rodent traps are a great tool to use as they differ from species to species and can therefore be tailored to suit the nature of the call. They can be laid down wherever the hot spot of rodent activity is, leading to a fast and effective capture once the rodents catch a whiff of the bait.

Pathogens, predators, and parasitoids: These products are a form of what is known as biological control, wherein they are specifically laid down to target the pest and eliminate them. These are some of the most natural forms of pest control product, as they don’t overly affect the surrounding environment. One of the only downsides to using pathogens etc. is that they have a decreased effectiveness against nesting rodents.

Poisoned bait: The least preferred pest control product out of the ones on this list is poisoned bait. Poisoned bait is usually a last-resort product, as it automatically removes the chance for a re-release to a safe new destination. Further, poisoned bait can pose a threat to other animals such as pets or farm animals, so it’s a product not suitable for all scenarios.

Our Effective Rodent Control Methods

Rat TrapObviously, the most effective method for rodent control and removal varies case to case depending on the nature and size of the infestation but, usually, the Pest.co.uk team will rely on a combination of the following methods:

  • Trapping: Using the aforementioned rodent traps, our technicians will set up bait areas at the most infested spots before luring rodents into these traps. Most of the traps are humane and will allow us to safely remove the rodents from the site to be re-released safely.
  • Biological Control: This is a method done using the pathogens and predators mentioned above. Biological control is a method that centres around the safe release of these agents, which will then target the rodents and help to eliminate them. Biological control is best used as a management strategy over a longer period of time, rather than counterparts such as pesticides.
  • Poisoned Baiting: As is probably obvious, poisoned baiting is a rodent control method that uses poison bait, as covered above. It is a method that involves the strategic placement of poisoned bait around the sites that see the most vermin activity, and will only ever be used if the risk of harming other animals is as low as possible.
