Urban rats & mice in Oxford

Mice and rats are opportunistic scavengers in towns and villages such as Oxford, Bicester or Wallingford. Rodents are omnivorous, eating anything from contents of rubbish and compost bins or discarded left-overs to fruits and seeds in gardens and parks and grains in farms or 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.

Pest Control expertise in the Thames Valley

On a daily basis, our Oxford team deal with the most common of UK pests including rats, mice, flies, fleas, bed bugs, common clothes moths, cockroaches, wasps, garden ants, stored product insects, birds, pigeons and gulls.

Particular to our area is the Edible Dormouse (Glis Glis). This “squirrel looking” rodent is not indigenous to the UK but was introduced by the Second Baron Rothschild in 1902 when he released 3 breeding pairs onto his estate in Tring, Hertfordshire. Since then Glis have thrived and spread across the Chiltern Hills.

Historic Oxford is a popular destination for shopping, sightseeing and dining, with numerous cafes, restaurants and bars to sustain visitors and locals, however, pests can be attracted by the scraps left behind.
