Rodent Control

A Professional, Greener Approach to a Pest-Free Home

Rats are not just a nuisance; they’re a hazard. They gnaw through structures, spoil possessions, and carry diseases like Leptospirosis, Toxoplasmosis, and Hantavirus. At Mole Management Pest Control, I understand the gravity of the situation and offer a comprehensive, integrated pest management strategy to control these rodents effectively.

Why Not Just Poison?
It’s tempting to reach for the quickest fix—Toxic Bait (rat poison). However, without professional certification, you’re limited to “amateur use” rodenticides in the UK. These may not be potent enough to eliminate all rats, leading to resistance and further infestation. Moreover, dealing with the aftermath of dead rats is unpleasant and can lead to secondary infestations of maggots and flies.

My Professional Process:
When you call me, expect a thorough survey of your property. I inspect from the ground up, identifying entry points and signs of infestation. My methods range from non-toxic, non-lethal exclusion techniques to strategic placement of traps and, when necessary, the careful use of professional-grade rodenticides.

Survey and Deduction:
The initial survey is crucial and costs £45. It is a valuable first step towards reclaiming your space.

Exclusion Over Poison:
My philosophy prioritizes non-toxic methods. I block access routes and remove attractants before considering lethal options. When I do use rodenticides, they’re placed in secure locations to protect pets and local wildlife, and I diligently search for and remove any carcases to prevent odours and secondary issues.

Seal and Secure:
Ultimately, the goal is to make your home rodent-proof. I take care of sealing gaps, repairing airbricks, and fixing leaks to ensure rats can’t return.
