DID YOU KNOW?
So you’re struggling with a never-ending rodent problem. These pesky little guys can shimmy their way in just about any hole or opening they can find. Rats can squeeze their way into a hole as small as a quarter, while mice can fit in an opening as tiny as a dime!
If you want to get rid of rodent, you could use pricey rodent traps or lay down rat poison. Doing this will almost always kill a few rats, but what it won’t do is solve the problem for good. Rodents breed too fast, too often to take them out one at a time, unless you want to litter your entire house with poison.
Be careful though, even a bit of rodent poison is dangerous! There are countless cases of beloved pets accidentally eating rat poison. Even worse, sometimes this poison can be carried or drift into food, causing potentially serious illness in humans.
Even if you do manage to invest in enough traps, you won’t solve the problem of future rodents visiting your house and overstaying their welcome. After all, your house is warm; it has lots of tight, comfortable spaces perfect for nesting, and the best part: plenty of food!
So however those first rats got in, you can be certain future rats will follow. If there’s a rat infestation in your neighbour’s house, the rodent kids might move in next door when they grow up.
SO HOW DO I SOLVE MY RODENT PROBLEM FOR GOOD?

As mentioned above, rats can squeeze through remarkably tiny holes a trained and experienced eye might not notice.
With rodent proofing, our professional proofers will inspect every nook and cranny of your home to find potential rodent gateways and seal them for good. Rodent proofing is a solution that can last decades, providing you peace of mind from ever again having to deal with pesky mice scurrying across your floor or squeaking from behind the walls!
