Rats & Mice



Our RSPH certified Technicians provide safe, effective solutions to get rid of rats using industry-leading treatments. One of the quickest and most effective ways to control rats is with rodenticides. We have a large selection of rodenticides suitable for use indoors and out, in a wide variety of formulations too.

Rodenticides are used as part of a planned programme of anti–pest activity and regular monitoring. We'll put a schedule of visits in place designed to effectively take care of your rat problem with the minimum of disruption.

We offer pest solutions on all commercial and domestic premisis. Call us today for advice and for a free quotation.
