Rodents are among the most common pests, as they are able to fit in small spaces and climb, meaning any form of entry point can be used. At Advanced Pest Control Services, we work with homeowners and businesses in Maldon, Essex, carrying out effective mouse and rat control solutions. Our team also consider future reoccurrences and will be happy to advise on any proofing that is required.
The brown rat is the most common in the UK and is usually brown or grey in colour. They may be a ground-living mammal, but can and will climb. Rats can carry several diseases that are transmitted to man, including Weil’s disease, hanta virus, salmonella and rat bite fever to name but a few. They can gain access to roof spaces and cause damage to solid goods, and have even been known to cause fires by chewing through electrical cables. At-risk areas include:
• Beneath Garden Sheds and Decking
• Compost Heaps
• Roof Spaces
• Any Garden Areas That Would Allow Burrowing
Advanced Pest Control Services will carry out a thorough inspection and complete any treatment that may be required to eradicate the infestation. Our pest controllers will also advise on any proofing that may be required to prevent a reoccurrence of the problem. Get in touch with us today for a quote.
Mice can be a pest in both commercial and domestic properties. There are two species that invade properties: house mice and, occasionally, field mice. With litters of 6 to 8 possible and a gestation period of just three weeks, a female can have between 5 to 10 litters per year, meaning numbers grow extremely fast. They can carry diseases that are transmittable to humans and are often found in roof spaces and can cause considerable damage to stored goods and power cables. Mice are good climbers, and can get through gaps as small as 7mm.
Advanced Pest Control Services will conduct a thorough inspection of the property and carry out any treatments that may be required to eradicate the infestation. Our team will also be happy to advise on any proofing that be necessary to prevent re-infestation. Please call us today for a quotation!
