How to tell if you have an infestation:

Harmful Health Effects

Not only are they unsanitary creatures that cause nasty diseases to you and your family including: Hantavirus, Salmonella and Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis. They also cause damage to your home by nibbling away wood from the structure of your house.



Both humane and aggressive solutions are available, and a full risk assessment will be carried out before the treatment commences looking at a number of factors. For example: does the property contain children, cats or dogs that could get access to the bait? 

The most effective treatment is normally a mixture of proofing & Anticoagulant bait stations with industrial traps baited with our secret formula high protein attractant. The treatment normally requires 2-3 visits normally 7-10 days apart.
