Rodent Pest Control

About Our Rodent Pest Control Services

Rodents are very adept at getting into properties – particularly during the colder months as they seek shelter and forage for food. Mice and rats can squeeze through small gaps within the property such as air vents, gaps around pipework, through gaps at the base of doors and more. Squirrels can also make their way through gaps within the roof and invade your loft spaces, causing structural damage to the due to their constant gnawing. Total Pest Control has the solutions to treat such infestations and can carry out relevant proofing to stop the rodents coming back.

Squirrels Pest Control

Squirrels invade your loft space and cause damage to the woodwork due to their constant gnawing. They are very active during the day and can be heard running within the loft space. Having squirrels in your loft space can be very distressing as they damage items stored in the loft space which sometimes can be of sentimental value. If you suspect you have squirrels nesting within your loft space then it is best dealt with quickly to minimise stress and damage caused.
