Mice and rat infestations in Sussex

Mice and rats are opportunistic scavengers in Sussex towns and villages such as Crawley and Shipley Bridge. 

Rodents are omnivorous, eating things from rubbish and compost bins to discarded left-overs, or seeds in gardens and parks, as well as food in our homes if they get in. 

If you’ve seen signs of rodents, the safest and most effective way to get rid of mice or rats is by professional, targeted treatments.

Pest Control expertise throughout Crawley and Sussex

Crawley sits in the Weald (Old English in origin, it signifies woodland) between the North and South Downs in West Sussex.
In the 1770s travel between the newly fashionable seaside resort of Brighton and London became safer and quicker, and Crawley (located approximately halfway between the two) prospered as a coaching halt and continued to grow.

New Towns Act of 1946 identified Crawley as a suitable location for a New Town. The proposed filling in the gaps between the villages of Crawley, Ifield and Three Bridges would provide badly needed housing for the overspill from London war damaged suburbs.

Gatwick Airport was built on the site of Gatwick Manor, close to the village of Lowfield Heath. Most of the village was demolished when the airport expanded, but the Grade II* listed St Michael and All Angels Churchremains. The site of Lowfield Heath village, now occupied by warehouses and light industrial units is on the airport's southern boundary.

While most of the jobs created in Crawley new town's early years were in manufacturing, the tertiary sector developed strongly from the 1960s. The Manor Royal estate, with its proximity to Gatwick and good transport links, attracted airport-related services such as logistics, catering, distribution and warehousing. The growth of Gatwick Airport continues to provide opportunities for businesses in the aviation, transport, warehousing and distribution industries.

Our team provide professional pest control services for homes and businesses throughout Crawley and West Sussex. Our local technicians, surveyors, field biologist and avian specialists are BPCA (British Pest Control Association) certified.

They understand the pressures that communities face as opportunistic pests such as rats, mice, gulls and feral pigeons exploit vulnerable areas and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to provide the most effective solution to your pest problem.

They are also experienced in dealing with uncommon pests that you do not see in many parts of the UK -  brown tail moth caterpillars. These pests can be found in the Hailsham area and can be quite a nuisance when the temperatures start to rise during the summer months. Rentokil Pest Control have developed a non-toxic method for treating them.
