Pest control blaenau gwent.

I have recently responded to a pest control problem with rats in a shop premises in Blaenau Gwent.


After discussing the problem with the occupants i discovered the property had recently been renovated and a false ceiling and ventilation had been installed. When an engineer inspected the system he found rat droppings on the suspended ceiling. When i looked in the ceiling space i found droppings, see photo, but could not see an obvious entry point.

During the initial visit the whole fabric of the building must be checked this can take a while because an adult rat can squeeze through a fifty pence size hole.

The survey revealed a missing vent cover from the ventilation  system , this was quickly installed and bait and rat tracking dust was placed in the ceiling space.It does take time for the rats the take the bait because they are very cautious of anything new. The tracking dust shows up under Ultra Violet light revealed the route they take.

During the second visit it was found that the bait and dust had not been disturbed,there were no new droppings and there had been no unusual noises or rodent sightings.

Rat control problems can sometimes be as simple as a small hole or missing grill or vent cover,proofing and replacing missing items can swiftly solve the problem.

When rats have entered  a property they may try to enter by other means after their initial route has been blocked,it is important to remain vigilant and put control measures in place to ensure they do not gain access again.
