Exeter Rat Control

Associated with filth and disease, and with a manner of quickly scurrying out of sight when spotted, most people do not like rats and definitely do not want them in their homes. Aside from being unhygienic, they can cause damage to parts of the home in making their nest, so getting in touch with our Exeter rat control team might be the right call.

Our team has experience taking care of rat infestations of all kinds and sizes, making sure not only to get them out of your home or commercial property but also to stop them from coming back. We can play traps, baits, and poisons to eliminating them, then look at the points of infiltration they used to get inside in the first place, making sure that they are closed off.

If you have seen rats in your property or suspect they might be hidden in the walls, attics, ventilation, or other parts of your property, call our Exeter rat control team on 01392 244 151 and we will come out to deal with it.

Exeter Mice Control

Mice are not quite as widely reviled as rats. A lot of people keep them as pets, in fact. That said, if you have uninvited rodents on your property, even the smaller kind, they can cause the same kinds of problems, so you should call our Exeter mice control team to come out and deal with them.

The sooner we come out, the sooner we can stop mice from affecting the air quality of your home and the better we can prevent the damage they cause to make their nesting. Aside from simply getting rid of the mice, our Exeter mice control team also looks at the entry points they use to get inside, making sure that we close them up.

Exeter Squirrel Control

There are two types of squirrels commonly found in the UK. Red squirrels are a protected species that is native to the UK so, while we can offer some advice on keeping them from your home and garden, our options for dealing with them are limited.

However, the more invasive grey squirrels are not protected and can affect both your home and local wildlife, so our Exeter squirrel control team can do a lot more to help you deal with them. Unlike red squirrels, grey squirrels are neither native to the UK nor protected. This species was brought to the UK from the Americas, and due to the fact that they both eat more and breed a lot more than red squirrels, they have been responsible for dwindling populations of red squirrels.

As such, if you have any squirrels causing you some trouble on your property, you can call our Exeter squirrel control team on 01392 244 151 and we will let you know what we do to take care of them.

Exeter Wasp Nest Removal

A lot of people find wasps intimidating, and for good reason. They have painful stings, which many people are allergic to, and are more aggressive than bees in many cases.

We will find them and eliminate them to offer you peace of mind.

Exeter Bed Bug Control

Nearly invisible to the naked eye, very hard to eliminate alone, and an annoying pest that can cause a lot of discomfort, no one wants bed bugs in their home. However, without the experience and equipment necessary, it can be hard to get rid of them. But that’s where our Exeter bed bug control team can help.

Bed bugs are small blood-sucking creatures that feed on humans and can live in many different parts of the home, not just in the bed.

Rodent activity behind garden shed in Exeter, EX13, June 2022

Pestforce Pest Control Exeter received a call and promptly attended a home in Exeter to investigate rodent activity in the garden. We conducted an inspection and although no rat or mice droppings were found, we discovered evidence of rat activity behind the shed at the rear of the garden. We commenced our rodent treatment program straight away. One week later we returned to monitor the progress of the rodent treatment program, there was good evidence to indicate the treatment was working. We replenished the bait boxes and scheduled a visit in 7 days’ time. On return, we once again checked the progress of the rodent treatment program, this time we were confident that there are no longer rats present in this area. Our rodent treatment program is highly successful and specifically targets rodents only, therefore unlike typical poisons, it is safe to use around pets and children.

As renovations are currently ongoing at the premises, we have placed gel bait boxes, these prevent spillage if accidently knocked.

This would also help with rodent control, as this competes with the rodenticide, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment.
