Despite your best efforts to keep your premises clean and secure, rodents such as rats, mice and squirrels can still find their way in. During the winter months they hunt for warmth and shelter, with derelict buildings and overgrown gardens providing perfect locations. In addition, gaps under doors and windows and open ventilation can allow them to enter, as well as gaps around pipes coming through walls and roofs. Make sure that you regularly check garden sheds and timber decking, as rats are excellent climbers.

Rodents may also use bushes and overgrown vegetation to gain access to properties. They are able to squeeze through gaps as small as a penny, so be vigilant if you notice signs such as droppings and scratch marks.

Bird droppings can be a particular nuisance in urban areas, where they can cause significant damage to building facades, car park paving and pavement surfaces. Additionally, they carry diseases and mites that can have serious health implications. Bird nests in buildings, on ledges or roof tops are also a common problem. Our BPCA certified local pest control in Hertfordshire specialists are skilled in professional trapping and proofing programmes to solve the issue.
