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 Houghton-le-Spring.

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 Houghton-le-Spring.
