Pest Control Cardiff


Using a Micro Camera to Identify rats at this Cardiff

Had a call from Ms D who lives on a new estate in Cardiff. She told me that she had a pest control problem, something was burrowing under paving slabs near her back door.

On visiting the house I found several burrows leading under the paving slab directly outside the rear door. I have a micro camera connected to a video screen which allows me to see in small spaces, a metre into the burrow i found grass and paper which indicated a Rodent nest.

The size of the burrow indicated it was a rat problem. Rats will burrow in earth in order to make a nest. My dog was brought in and she marked two very small holes under the slab which i didn’t see, the rats make these as escape routes from the nest to use if they feel a threat.

Over several weeks i treated the problem with Rodenticide which has solved the problem. I lifted the slabs and they are to be relayed blocking all burrows to stop any future problems.
