Rodent Control

Rat Control

Complete Environmental Services, operating under Complete Pest Control, have many years experience in Rodent Control. Not only are rats & mice a 'pest' to a lot of people, rodent control & extermination is essential to a lot of businesses around the UK.

Getting rid of rodents, or keeping rodents under control is just one of the services we offer at Complete Pest Control. Whether it is a one off call out, or as part of an annual pest control contract we can offer solutions to your rodent problem whether it is in the house, or on commercial property in Gateshead.

Rats are known carriers of a wide range of serious diseases transmittable to humans, these include Weil's disease, rat bite fever, cryptosporidiosis, viral hemorrhagic fever, Q fever and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. They also infest and ruin foodstuffs and cause serious structural damage to buildings, pipework and wiring systems by their constant gnawing. Rats gnawing electrical wires is a common cause of fires.

Do not think of mice as the nicer version of rats, they can carry the same diseases as rats and are much more likely to transmit these diseases due to their bolder and more inquisitive nature. In much the same way as rats, their constant gnawing causes structural damage to properties and damage to wires is a very real fire risk.

Rodent Prevention

Rat Extermination
Preventing an infestation of rats or mice can be achieved by rodent-proofing your home. However, if an infestation of rodents is already present we have a wide variety of methods of control & treatments which includes rodenticide grains, a variety of killer baits as well as a range of humane traps and live catch traps. Once the rodent infestation is under control we will advise our customers what actions they can take to minimises the likelihood of a reoccurrence.

We also operate Pest Control Contracts, which means we can ensure that your rodent extermination, or rodent control methods are updated on a regular basis. Each plan is different, so once we look into your rodent problem we will ensure that you are offered the best contract plan for your property and grounds.

Our Rodent Control is suitable for both commercial customers and domestic customers in Gateshead.


Interesting Facts

The Brown Rat is the most common rat in the UK, it exists on every continent apart from Antarctica making it the most successful mammal on the planet after humans. A single breeding pair of adult rats can be responsible for up to 1000 young in a single year - far more young than rabbits can manage!
Squirrels are incredibly agile and have an excellent spacial memory - squirrels can rotate their hind feet through 180 degrees which allows them to be just as comfortable running down a tree as up a tree.

Brown Rats are an important reservoir for Coxiella burnetii the bacteria that causes Q Fever and thought to exist in 53% of the rat population in certain areas of the UK.

To give you an idea how dangerous this can be, when the US biological warfare program ended in 1969 it had developed seven mass-produced, battle-ready biological weapons - one of these was Q Fever!

Unfortunately, there's more than just bird flu to be worried about. There are over 60 other diseases that birds and their droppings can carry. The problem is especially worrisome in residential areas, as many of these diseases are airborne and can be transferred to humans just by being around bird droppings.
Bodily fluids such as blood, urine, faeces and vomit can carry a whole host of pathogens and diseases, the most common examples are HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and viral hemorrhagic fevers. Given that some blood-borne diseases are lethal, standard practice regards all bodily fluids (and blood) as potentially infectious.
