Rat control for your business

Successful rat treatment from The Pied Piper

Rats can cause a lot of damage to your business if they gain access to your property. They can gnaw through some of the toughest of materials to get in, and once they're inside, they can contaminate food and damage stock. Staff can refuse to work in an environment where rats are present, and live rats seen by your clients can damage your image and reputation, causing considerable financial loss.
Rats are able to find their way into your property and quickly set up home, and before you know it, you have a severe infestation. Is it worth the risk? If you are looking to protect your property from pests or have a severe pest problem now and want to get this resolved asap, then give us a call, and we will do the rest. We provide professional rat control treatments to eradicate rat infestations from your business premises.

How to eliminate rats from your business

Your reputation could be at risk if you have rats in your business and do not employ a professional pest control company to deal with them. Some businesses are not affected as much by rats, like building sites, but rats in a food business or food manufacturing site could mean that you could be closed down and handed a hefty fine. The impact of rats on your business is widely known to negatively affect customer reviews and their decisions on whether or not to use your business, which could impact your profits. Rat populations increase rapidly and can cause more damage day by day. Regarding pest control and keeping within the law, most businesses cannot afford to waste time trying to deal with a rat infestation themselves as the risks are too high. Local authorities take various preventative measures, but that is not enough to prevent rodent infestations. A sexually mature rat couple can produce thousands of rats within a few months. Even recently planted traps may not be enough to eradicate the rat problem.
Don`t take risks with your business; get the experts in now. We are a professional pest control company and are a member of British pest control association and are happy to help you with rodent infestations and pest management in your business area.
We control your rat problems completely and prevent future infestations through regular maintenance programs to protect your staff and your business.

About our rat treatments for businesses

If you have a business in food processing, food retail, or restaurants and bars, you need to be aware of the risk that rats can pose to your business. Rats can spread diseases and contaminate food, which could lead to your business being shut down for not complying with legislation. Our experienced team can help you to implement an effective rat control program as part of your integrated pest control program, to help protect your business from the risk of rats.
Unlike wild rats that you find out in the countryside, feral rats in the city pose much more of a serious problem. Instead, you will find them around electrical cables, wall cavities, and roof spaces. Therefore, they can do structural damage, cause electrical fires, and severe damage to your business premises.
Rat infestations can cause serious health issues and interrupt the day-to-day running of your business. Especially if you deal with food products, even one rat can create serious problems. On top of that, it can do irreparable damage to your business reputation. Unfortunately, bad news travels faster. Therefore, you should act fast to find the proper solution to rat problems. We control your rat problems completely and prevent future infestations through regular maintenance programs to protect your staff and your business.

Frequently asked questions about rats

If I have rats in my business or workplace can I treat it myself?

Yes, you can, but would you want to risk losing your reputation or your customers or employees seeing rats running around? Time waits for no one and it is vital to act fast when pests are seen in a business and it is important you contact a professional pest control company immediately.

Should I have a pest control maintenance contract or just a few treatments?

If you are running a business and handle or process food then it would be crucial that your business is covered by regular pest control visits to minimise any outbreaks of pests. The visits are designed to control and prevent pests now and in the future.

How much does a pest control contract cost for my business?

This depends on your business type and the service you require. If you are a restaurant, regular monthly visits are essential to ensure you are kept pest-free and that any pest activity is quickly and efficiently dealt with. Alternatively, if you have a warehouse and don’t deal with any food products then a standard pest control program with minimal visits should suffice.

Do I have to have a pest control contract?

This is a grey area but if you are a business that handles food and you know you have a pest problem then you are legally required to deal with the issue using a professional company that can provide you with written reports to detail what work they have carried out and that they are monitoring the premises. This would be left in a report folder on the premises to allow inspection by the council health inspectors.

Are rats and mice dangerous?

Yes, both rats and mice can be dangerous in several ways.

They can transmit diseases to humans, including salmonellosis, hantavirus, and leptospirosis. These diseases can be transmitted through contact with their urine, faeces, or saliva, or by being bitten by an infected rodent.

In addition to disease transmission, rats and mice can also cause property damage. They can gnaw through electrical wires, causing a fire hazard, and damage insulation, causing energy loss and higher utility bills. They can also damage walls, furniture, and other structures in buildings.

Furthermore, rats and mice are known to reproduce quickly and can quickly create an infestation, making it challenging to control and eliminate the problem without professional help. They can also attract other pests, such as fleas and ticks, which can also transmit diseases.

Overall, it is essential to take rat and mouse infestations seriously and address them promptly to protect yourself and your business from potential health risks and damage. If you suspect a rat or mouse infestation in your business or workplace, it is best to seek professional help from a pest control service to effectively eliminate the problem.
