Mice and rat infestations across Cumbria

Mice and rats are opportunistic scavengers in our towns, such as Kendal and Carlisle and local villages. Rodents are omnivorous, eating anything from contents of rubbish and compost bins and discarded left-overs to fruits, seeds in gardens and parks and grains in farms and silos, 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.

Local pest control services from the experts

We deal daily with the most common UKs pests including rats, mice, cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, flies, wasps and ants and have plenty of experience of some rarer visitors to our shores such as highly poisonous spiders and rare insects.

We also specialise in bird control work, fitting netting systems, bird scaring audio units and using our birds of prey to keep many sites free from gulls and feral pigeons. We understand the huge pressures the coastal towns in particular are under as the populations of gulls continue to grow and can assure you, that no matter what size your infestation is, we can find an effective solution for every issue.

Bed bugs in hotels are another infestation that we come across all too often and we utilise an innovative and effective heat-based solution that can minimise the impact these insects can have on your business. Take a look up at our heat-pod treatment.

Our client base is very varied as we look after private houses, shops, restaurants, supermarkets, food manufacturers, engineering sites, hospitals, care homes, schools and everything in between. 90% of our work is our pest prevention service where we ensure that your premises are pest free, as we understand that prevention is far better than cure. However, on the occasions that infestations do occur, we aim to control that issue as quickly as possible with minimal fuss to your business or home.

Our team of professionals are qualified to British Pest Control Association level 2 and above and have the resources and knowledge to deal with any pest problems quickly and effectively.

Quality, local technicians, field biologists and specialist bird control technicians are always on hand to respond quickly to help keep your home or business free from pests.

Pest Control Costs

To enable us to provide an accurate price, our qualified pest control surveyors will contact you to discuss your pest infestation, and if necessary visit your premises to fully understand the extent of the infestation.

They can then recommend the most appropriate and effective treatment to solve your pest problem. Our professional pest control survey and quote are free of charge.
