We’re lucky enough to live in a world where mouse and rat infestations are increasingly uncommon. Better hygiene standards and improved building quality mean that we no longer have to take it for granted that rodents will share our homes or businesses.
But sometimes they insist on reminding us of their existence. They might announce this by biting you while you sleep; by scuttling across your bedroom floor and into some dark recess behind your wardrobe; or by leaving mysterious chew marks in the apple pie you left on the windowsill.
It’s an easy mistake to make. You notice the signs of a rat’s presence, so you deploy a trap. Days pass and nothing happens. The signs of infestation continue, but it’s not affecting you very much – so you simply ignore it and go on with your life.
This lack of response is dangerous. Rats and mice often carry diseases, which they spread to humans via their droppings or urine. Leptospirosis and salmonellosis are two of the most common ones, but the most famous example is of course the bubonic plague, or Black Death, which ravaged Europe in the Middle Ages.
Ticks, fleas, and lice also love to ride around in the hair of rats, often jumping off and colonising various parts of your house as soon as they get the chance.
Because rats gnaw constantly to sharpen their teeth, they frequently damage pipes, insulation, skirting boards, wooden furniture, and other parts of your property.
The pest control team at Endeavour has been dealing with rat and mouse infestations for more than ten years, and we’re fully equipped to weed out even the most cunning rodents.
When we visit your property, the first thing we’ll do is conduct a careful assessment to identify which type of rodent is giving you grief. Based on what we find, we’ll come up with a targeted solution that eradicates the pests quickly and effectively.
We use methods which are entirely safe for you and your pets.
Crucially, we can also help you prevent future infestations. We promise that by the time we’re finished, you’ll be able to put your feet on the ground without having to worry about something crawling over them.
