Today we have visited clients located in Stroud, Cirencester and Chalford to assess rodent activity they have began to notice. We have used a variety of techniques and visual assessments to determine whether the damage being caused to properties is from mice or rats, which is crucial when deciding an appropriate method of treatment to control the infestation.
We are seeing an unusually high number of call outs for rodents at this present time, with over 75% of our calls currently being related to rats and mice in household properties. The damage they have caused to the properties we have visited today has ranged from chewing of electrical wiring, which can present a fire hazard, to gnawing marks on pipe insulation. We use a variety of techniques to control infestations both inside and outside of the property, which is discussed with our customers during the visit to ensure they are confident with the treatment plan.
