Urban rats and mice in Sunderland

Rodents are commensal pests, opportunistic scavengers thriving in our urban areas such as Burdon and Roker that can offer them opportunities for 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.

Expert Pest Control across Sunderland

Across Tyne & Wear there are a wide selection of house types, such as terraced homes in densely populated city centres or larger houses in rural market towns. Both of which can suffer from rats and mice, with rural areas also suffering from problems with cluster flies.

The experience our team has gained from providing expert pest control services throughout the Sunderland, Tyne & Wear areas has enabled them to understand the habits of different pests, which ensures they know how to control and remove them quickly and safely from your home or business.

We work closely with food manufacturing plants and large pharmaceutical and chemical companies to ensure they remain pest free. By providing regular field biologist inspections, we can ensure they comply with relevant legislation, governing bodies and hygiene standards are maintained.

Our Sunderland team also provide specialist bird control solutions for lots of the supermarkets across the region and for many businesses in coastal areas to ensure gulls and pigeons don’t cause a nuisance, to customers visiting the premises or cause damage to their property.

Another specialist service we provide is field biologist inspections of cruise ships that dock in the ports situated in the area. We undertake a full pest inspection of ships to ensure they are free from any pests and ready for the next set of tourist to board.

Tourism is important to our city centres and we work together with hotels, bars, restaurants and shops to provide discreet and responsive pest control and prevention services to ensure they remain pest free and their reputation is upheld.
