Rats & Mice*

When dealing with a rat or mouse infestation we adhere strictly to the code of practice issued by CRRU (Campaign For Responsible Rodenticide Use) to ensure that rodenticides are used correctly and in ways that minimise the exposure of wildlife and other non-target animals, as such we will always try to achieve control without using rodenticides where possible, we aim to do this by identifying what has attracted the rodents in the first place and making changes to prevent rodents access or to make areas unattractive to them this may include things like proofing, cutting back vegetation, securing waste containers, removing food and water sources etc. if this has already been done or is impractical we will then look at non-toxic control methods such as shooting and trapping before considering the use of rodenticides. If we determine that rodenticides are required to achieve control we will carry out an environmental risk assessment to identify any risks and to identify suitable "active" ingredients for the target species and with the least amount of risk involved.

As with ALL our treatments we are happy to put our reputation where our mouth is and we will guarantee eradication for 6 months as long as our recommendations are followed.

All rodent treatments consist of 1 survey visit and 1 treatment visit MINIMUM (survey and first treatment will be done at the same time where appropriate) the treatment visits will be roughly 2 weeks apart but this can change depending on how we are treating the problem we will discuss this with you at survey.

All rodent treatments also include basic proofing where necessary such as fitting weep hole protectors, filling gaps round pipes and small holes in the building fabric, any larger proofing jobs such as sewer valves, large holes and gaps, broken airbricks etc. can be quoted on site with no obligation.

During our visits we will also search for and dispose of any rodent carcasses and disinfect as required

Wasps , Hornets & Bees

WE DO NOT TREAT FOR BEES if you think you may have a bee nest/swarm on your property contact a local beekeeper via the British Bee Keepers Association HERE for assistance.

We will treat Wasps and Hornets by applying insecticidal dust to the entrance of the nest, this treatment is very effective at killing off the wasps however if the nest is not in a location that is accessible (e.g. cavity wall, soffit etc) we will apply the dust at entry points and allow the workers to carry the insecticide into the nest, this often takes longer to work and can sometimes fail, in these scenarios we will re attend and treat again at no cost.

Where practical we will arrange to remove the nest if you wish, this will be done on the first visit where practical or we can visit at a later date to do so (£25 charge for re-attending to remove a treated nest)

Where the nest is removed this is considered as a successful treatment and no guarantee will be applicable, wasps wont re-use old nests so any further nests are new and will be treated as such.

We will treat 1 nest per visit, any additional nests will be charged at £10 each this will always be discussed before treatment where applicable.

*RODENTICIDE PRECAUTIONS

AVOID ALL CONTACT BY MOUTH

DO NOT LET CHILDREN OR PETS, PARTICULARLY DOGS, HAVE ACCESS TO THE BAIT

IN CASE OF ACCIDENT CONTACT A DOCTOR OR VETERINARIAN AND SHOW THIS INFO

NOTE TO PHYSICIAN - If you think bait has been eaten containing Brodifacoum, Bromadialone, Difenacoum, Difethialone, Flocumfen Warfarin and Coumatetaryl - the product is an indirect anticoagulant: 

Vitamin K1 (phytomenadione) is antidotal. In cases of suspected consumption of bait, determine prothrombin times not less than 18 hours after such consumption. If elevation has occurred administer K1 intravenously in divided doses: 40mg for adults, 20mg for children daily. Treatment may be required for a prolonged period. Withdraw antidote with care and monitor prothrombin times continuously for 4 days or more after such withdrawal. NB. Brodifacoum and Difenacoum have a longer effect than most commonly encountered anticoagulant.

We may also use Selontra utilising Chloracalciferol this is not an anticoagulant .
 


INSECTICIDE - GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION

The sale and use of pesticides in the UK is covered by statutory controls. Under the law all pesticides must be used in accordance with approvals granted by government ministers following independent assessment by expert scientists.

Furthermore all operators must by law be adequately trained and must carry out a specific hazard/risk assessment before they use any pesticide.

This gives both technician and our clients a great deal of protection. However if you should have any cause for concern, contact your doctor, local hospital (or in the case of an animal a veterinary surgeon) and show them these data sheets advising them of the product used. See the relevant treatment report.

All pesticides used are approved under the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 or the Biocidal Product Regulations 2012, and have been safely applied as required by the Conditions of Approval.

These poisons may be harmful especially to children and pets if mishandled or swallowed.
