13 August 2020

Since the current pandemic has occurred the emergence of rodents has increased.

It is now time to be extra cautious and take further precautions in both home and the workplace. So what are the best ways to protect your home/workplace against rodents and infestations? Well, there are a variety of methods which we have on offer which include …

Sealed drainage systems -

These are very reliable as the seal stops the rats from entering the drain or the sewer. This method will need regular access and inspection. It will also need entry rods to clear away any blockages which may appear. This allows maintenance from the surface of the drains. Overall, it is a very accessible method.

Rodent barriers

These are as simplistic as they sound. This method is carried out by placing a durable barrier within the pipes to stop any form of access to the rodents. This will massively benefit your home or workplace from the possibility of rodent infestations.

Intercepting traps

Intercepting traps is a great method. The traps themselves are made out of fireclay and are placed in the U-bend of the pipework. They are also commonly referred to as Buchan traps. The negative to this method however is that some rodents have been able to outsmart the traps by swimming through the pipes beneath the traps in the U-bend.

Simple Cages

Cages are a cost efficient and time efficient method when removing rodents from any premises. By placing a metal cage within ventilation access points you are immediately stopping any form of access for the rodents to outsmart.
