Protecting Your Health & Environment
Rats are extremely unsanitary animals, living in or near refuse areas, compost heaps, water sources, drainage systems, sewers and railways, where food and water are freely available. Rats are incontinent of urine and this, together with frequent droppings, means that rats pose a serious risk to human health as they are carriers of dangerous diseases such as Weil`s, salmonella and dysentry.
As they are such masters of their world, they can often be around your home or business premises for some period of time before you even realise you have a problem.
So how do I know that I have rats?
IF YOU ANSWER YES TO ONE OR MORE OF THESE QUESTIONS, YOU MAY HAVE RATS.
At Eradica Pest Control we want nothing more than to take your pest problem off your hands, so you can concentrate on running your home or your business, safe in the knowledge that your pest issues are being dealt with by professionals.
We offer a fast, efficient service for the removal of a rat infestation, priced per job and NOT per visit.
Beware of pest control companies who charge per visit as it is very easy to end up with a huge bill if the problem pest is difficult to control.
Normally, we would attend the same day as your call to us or at a convenient time to suit you.
On the first visit we would carry out a survey of your home or business premises to ascertain the location and the extent of the problem and then, depending on the scenario, lay traps or rodenticide as an initial treatment.
We would supply you with a treatment report, outlining what we have done, the chemicals used if applicable, and any other health and safety data.
Then we would make a follow-up visit when the bait or traps would be inspected, and any bait boxes refilled if necessary.
Treating for rats generally takes 2-3 visits, but we will attend for as long as is necessary to eradicate them.
On many occasions some repair work or proofing of rodent entry points will be necessary to prevent future problems.
During the treatment process we would discuss what preventative work needs to be done and we can offer a price should you wish us to complete the work.
Once everything was completed to your satisfaction, we would leave the area neat and tidy.
All traps, bait and bodies would be removed and we would leave you a final treatment report, outlining any advice to prevent a re-occurence in the future.
SPECIES WE DEAL WITH INCLUDE :
Rats and mice eat most foodstuffs, whether raw, cooked or rotting.
Rats in particular eat excrement and rubbish and both are urine incontinent. They are vectors of serious human diseases such as gastro-enteritis, Weil`s and dysentry, and therefore a rodent infestation poses a significant risk to customers and staff alike.
Effects of a rodent infestation on your business:
DON`T LET THIS BE YOU! CALL US IMMEDIATELY IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE RODENTS AND WE CAN ACT QUICKLY TO ERADICATE THEM FOR YOU!
We can provide you with one-off treatments or, for peace of mind and effective pest control, we offer three levels of service contract, tailored to suit your requirements.

YOUR BUSINESS REPUTATION CAN BE PROTECTED
At Eradica Pest Control we offer a quick, efficient service for the removal of squirrels. We do not use live catch traps as we are prohibited by law from relocating them back into the environment.
This would also upset the status quo, as the squirrel would no longer be in its own territory and its release would impact on other resident squirrels. It is therefore our policy to use kill traps, as this is the most humane way of destroying the animal.
Once we have identified your problem, traps would be laid in the affected areas, which would need to be inspected every day, so it is important that we are able to gain access as the whole process can take several days.
We charge per job and not per visit, so you can be assured that we would attend until the problem was resolved, at no extra charge.
On many occasions some repair work or proofing of entry points would be necessary to prevent further incursion. We would discuss this with you and offer a price, should you wish us to carry this out.
Indoor areas popular with mice tend to be those used for food storage and preparation, and enclosed spaces such as bathroom airing cupboards and boxed-in pipework. Being so small, mice can easily get into the structure of buildings without you even knowing, and because of this they can be under floorboards or behind walls for a considerable while before you realise.
During this time the population of mice can increase at an alarming rate, and by the time evidence is found, there is often a well-established colony to deal with.
Often people buy mouse traps, but soon realise that they are not dealing with just one mouse.
Soon the mice learn the danger of the traps and avoid them, so you will only catch a small percentage of the population using this method.
So how do I know that I have mice? As with rats, answering yes to the questions on the left will give you pointers to what might be the source of your problem.
Here at Eradica Pest Control we are experienced in rodent removal and can deal with your problem in 2-3 visits. We charge a set price for treating a mouse infestation, so you will always know the cost from the start of the treatment, and we will keep visiting until the problem has been resolved.
Often the subject of horror stories, blamed for spreading disease and causing destruction to property, it`s no wonder we must keep rats under control. They have lived alongside humans for thousands of years and have the ability to evolve to suit a new environment very quickly due to their prolific breeding. They have conquered all types of environment from the poles to the equator, so wherever you are there will always be a rat around somewhere, although the statement "you`re never more than ten feet from a rat" is taking it a bit far!!!
Squirrels may well have gained access to your roof space.
Highly destructive, they can cause extensive damage to your building`s structure, wiring, and pipework, creating the risk of fire and the possibility of expensive repair work.
If there are young in the nest, the mother is likely to be very aggressive. Don`t ever underestimate a female squirrel with young.... she will attack and she`s fast!! You will not be able to get away quickly enough!!
Fortunately, squirrels do not tend to populate roof voids all year round, but do return year after year to have their young. This is usually around April. Sometimes they can reappear towards the end of the summer for a period of time.
So. if you are hearing noises in your roof during April, be mindful..... it may be squirrels.
