Urban rats and mice in Northern Ireland

Rodents are commensal pests, opportunistic scavengers thriving in urban areas such as Antrim and Cookstown that can offer them abundant food and shelter. Both rats and house mice are omnivorous, consuming anything from contents of compost and rubbish bins and discarded left-overs to fruits and seeds in gardens and parks and even the food in our homes if they get in. The quickest and most effective way to get rid of rats or mice is by professional, targeted treatments.

Local expertise in Belfast, Strabane, Coleraine and surrounding areas

The densely populated urban centres like Armagh, Lisburn and Newry offer pests such as feral pigeons and mice, ample places to hide and nest - in parks, gardens, rooftops and basements. The walled or 'maiden' city of Derry-Londonderry is a hub of tourist activity (especially since being the UK City of Culture for 2013), but a bustling community can also offer opportunities for scavenging pests. Whilst the historic, cobbled Cathedral Quarter of Belfast - with it's bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs - is a haven for visitors, it can also be a constant food source for rats, mice and cockroaches.

Alongside these urban areas is a patchwork of country communities, in market towns, villages and hamlets. These rural locations offer other opportunities for pests to find suitable harbourages. Our knowledgeable, local experts know through experience where these pests are likely to hide, what attracts them and how to control and deter them.

Arable farming of cereals and grains is an important part of Northern Ireland industry. Protecting these crops from insect pests is vital to farmers and food manufacturers. Insect infestations can also damage goods and commodities being transported by shipping containers through commercial ports such as Belfast, Derry-Londonderry and Warrenpoint.
