Mice control in Rainham - 28/02/2022
Pestforce Pest Control Hornchuch were called three weeks ago by a customer in much distress. The customer had recently purchased his new home with his wife and three children. Over the last six months they started to see mouse droppings appear on the kitchen work tops then on the sofa and finally in the new baby's cot. My customer explained that he has already caught six mice within two weeks, but the evidence was still there. We attended the property and carried out a full property pest survey, we quickly realised that these poor people were infested with mice all over their new home. Mice were in the loft, bedrooms, all the bathrooms and finally in the kitchen. With all mice jobs finding the entry points into the property is key as well as working out how they are moving around the home once they are in and established. Being a new build and built to a decent standard and as per building regulations, at first it was tricky to find how these mice were getting into the fabric of the building. But then the electrical intake box / meter was inspected. Straight away you could see the classic oily smear marks coming into the box, the cables left the box and went into the house no grommet was fitted and a large hole was made straight into the cavity of the house. Bingo. Electric box proofed, a huge bait and trapping campaign implemented and 4 visits later hey presto no more mice. An extremely happy customer and kudos to PFR for the implementation of Integrated pest management to get this infestation under control.
