Squirrel

 

Grey squirrels trapping and squirrel removal

 

Removing a squirrel takes a minimum of 2 visits over 1 week and we charge £130 for this rodent control service.

 

Squirrels are not easy to trap; occasionally, they may require more visits and/or more time. 

 

You might have more than 1 grey squirrel co-habiting in a loft. Setting up more traps would add £19 per additional trap.

 

Additional follow-up inspections (if more than 2 visits) to reset, move or re-bait squirrel traps would cost £35 per extra visit

 

Most of our squirrel jobs are completed within one week.

 

Trapping squirrels with deadly spring-loaded traps

Spring-loaded squirrel traps such as Magnum Body Grip provide a clean and quick kill to the caught grey squirrels. These traps are highly effective where more than 1 squirrel is present and they do not have to be checked on daily. Spring-loaded traps are normally deployed indoors, mainly in lofts. Outside, a spring-loaded trap could only be used to control grey squirrels if set up within a protective tunnel to prevent accidental harm to non-target animals or pets.

(Live) squirrel trapping with a cage trap

A cage trap for catching a grey squirrel alive is usually placed and set up baited in the loft space. It has to be checked daily when a squirrel is caught to prevent the animal from unnecessary suffering. It is our second method of catching and removing grey squirrels.

 

Both of the above squirrel control methods can be combined and the number of squirrel traps to be set can be suited to the jo's needs.

At the customer's request, we can do temporary squirrel proofing for a discounted price on the property after catching and removing squirrels. Please feel free to speak to our attending technician at the initial visit.

 

Recommendations and advice on grey squirrel prevention are provided free at the customer's request.

Rats

 

Fast-response Rat Control Service

We aim to visit all of our residential customers throughout Greater Glasgow and Ayrshire within 24 hours of placing a request for rat control service with us.

Safe Control of Rats

Our technician will survey your property and its exterior including the immediately surrounding landscape to confirm (or rule out) rats. He or she will assess the infestation you might have and discuss with you the pest-control action plan to follow, including risk and safety management. Our standard rat control treatments are child and pet friendly, also are safe for non-target animals. We use unmarked vehicles to protect our customers' privacy.

Effective Treatments to Control Rats

Edible rodenticides are administered safely inside lockable tamper-resistant external rat bait stations that are​ positioned outside the premises treated for rats. Rat burrows, if present, are baited with loose-formulation rodenticides, alternatively with contact rodenticides applied straight into the rat burrows. Fast-acting "single feed"rodenticides (work within several hours) are simultaneously safely laid inside rat-infested buildings. Where rats are reluctant in taking edible baits, we use contact rodenticide in access-restricted areas and entry points. Spent rodenticide is recovered along with accessible carcasses at a follow-up inspection that has been included in the price 2 to 3 weeks later.

Rat Proofing and Other Advice

At the customer's request, we can check and quote for potential rat proofing that might be required to prevent rats from re-infesting the house/flat in the future. The main materials we use to block access (rat holes and structural gaps) and to deter rats from entry are steel wool, expanding foam, wired steel mesh and chicken wire. Rat-proofing work is ideally done after (internal) rat control treatment is completed, on the follow-up inspection.

 

Feel free to ask our attending technician about rat-proofing during the survey at the initial visit.

 

Recommendations and advice on rat prevention are provided free at the customer's request.

Quotes for Exterminating Rats

All quotes below are for 1 treatment and 1 follow up inspection only.

Rat infestations are usually started by rats exploring a wider area they frequent before opportunistically coming into houses in search of food, shelter and new potential breeding sites.

Most of the light to moderate rat infestations we control are successfully tackled with just 1 treatment and 1 follow-up inspection.

Severe and widespread rat infestations may, however, require repeat treatments to be reliably removed. At the customer's request, we can provide repeat treatments at less than half-price of the initial treatment, plus the final follow-up inspection would be free of charge. 

There is no call-out charge or charge for a survey If you have rats and we can do a treatment to control them for you. However, if you do not have rats (or any other pest rodents) we would need to charge you £30 for completing an initial inspection and assessment only.

Starting/light rat infestations

Rats are nocturnal rodents and therefore their presence outdoors can be easily overlooked at the start of an infestation. The rats may have a nest nearby and pass through your garden as they regularly travel distances between nesting and feeding sites. If rats can no longer find enough food sources and available breeding sites in the places they normally frequent (bins, rubbish tips etc.), they start entering houses. We strongly recommend you to control rats outside before they would become a problem inside your home.

£152 - 1 rat control treatment (placement of 4 external bait stations and burrow baiting outside your house) and 1 follow-up inspection.  

Advanced/moderate rat infestations

From the moment rats settle in your garden, it could only take days before they would find a way into your house. Rats can gain entry via gaps and holes exceeding 1 inch not only on or near the ground level but they also are good climbers who can make it up the walls with rough and semi-smooth surfaces (e.g. roughcast). The usual entry points are broken air vents, gaps around pipes and cables, gaps under doors or even broken soffits near the roof. Some areas of (any) house are therefore more prone to be infested by rats than other [areas].  To tackle a moderate rat infestation outdoors as well as indoors, we usually cover the outside [of the property to be treated] with 4 external bait stations and lay (rodenticidal) baits into internal key areas of the flat or house in the places where rats are most likely to enter or where they have already been sighted, plus where signs of rats such as smears, gnawing or droppings are found.

Our rat control deal:

(Most frequently used by our customers)

 

£161 - 1 rat control treatment (placement of 4 external bait stations (with rodenticide) and burrow baiting outside your house, plus bating in all key internal areas such as in the kitchen, in storage and utility cupboards and in the basement (if accessible) and 1 follow up inspection. The areas to be treated may also include 1 bedroom or a living room in our rat control deal.

Extending the treatment for a loft space or a (1-car) garage (recommended) adds £0 to this deal.

Severe rat infestations

It may have been a couple of years while the property was neglected that rats were able to make it their home. A severe rat infestation in residential property may harbour as many as 50 to in excess of 100 rats in the infested house, depending on its size.

To tackle a severe rat infestation of this scale, we place 4 external bait stations, do burrow and cavity baiting (with rodenticides) outside the property to be treated as well as cover all of its internal areas (with rodenticidal baits on trays) in every room, incl. utilities.

Our price of the treatment is based on the actual size of the property to-be-treated as follows:

£159 - 1 bedroom flat or a studio

£167 - 2-bed flat or house

plus £23 to include the loft

£175 - 3-bed flat or house

£183 - 4-bed house or flat

£191 - 5-bed house or flat

plus £34 to include the loft

 
 
 

Mice  

Fast-response Mouse Control Service

We will aim to visit your home in Greater Glasgow and Ayrshire within 24 hours of requesting our mouse control service.

 

Discreet and Safe Control of Mice

Our technician will survey your property to confirm (or rule out) mice and will discuss with you the pest-control action plan to follow, including a risk assessment and safety management. Our standard mouse control treatments are child and pet friendly. We use unmarked vehicles to protect our customers' privacy.

Effective Treatments to Exterminate Mice

Palatable as well as highly effective (within hours) single-feed rodenticide is administered safely in non-spill formulations; inside lockable tamper-resistant mouse bait stations​ in occupied areas and on trays in lofts or access-restricted internal areas, cavities and voids. Where mice display reluctance in taking edible baits, we use contact rodenticide inside bait stations and in access-restricted areas. Spent rodenticide is recovered along with accessible carcasses at a follow-up inspection that has been included in the price 1-2 weeks later. Lethal spring mouse traps are set up baited and scented inside protective tamper-proof stations.

Mouse Proofing and Other Advice

On the customer's request, we can check and quote for potential mouse proofing that might be required to prevent re-infestation of the treated property by mice in the future. The main materials we use to block access (holes and gaps) and to deter mice from trying to gain entry are steel wool and expanding foam. Proofing work is ideally done when mouse control treatment is completed on the follow-up inspection.

 

Feel free to ask our attending technician about mouse proofing during the survey at the initial visit.

 

Recommendations and advice on mouse prevention are provided free at the customer's request.

Quotes for Exterminating Mice

All quotes/fixed prices below are for 1 treatment and 1 follow-up inspection only.

Most mouse infestations we deal with are successfully tackled and removed with just 1 treatment and 1 follow-up inspection. 

 

Long-standing or severe mouse infestations may, however, require repeat treatments for reliable eradication of the small but troublesome vermin. At the customer's request,  we can provide repeat treatments at less than half-price of the initial treatment, plus the final follow-up inspection would be free of charge.

There is no call-out charge or a separate charge for a pest survey If you have mice and we can help with a treatment to control them for you. However, if you do not have mice (or any other pest rodents), we would need to charge you £30 for completing an initial inspection and assessment only.

Developing mouse infestations

Most mouse infestations start in one room; usually but not always, it is in the kitchen where mice are attracted to food before they would spread into other rooms around the house. If the presence of mice is identified early, the price for their destruction is cheaper because the treatment focuses on one area only at an early stage of infestation. You might get alerted to the presence of mice by noises, especially at night, and by finding mouse droppings. Fresh mouse droppings are shiny black and the size of a grain of rice. Sometimes, food or food packaging can be gnawed by mice

£117 - 1 mouse control treatment in a kitchen of average size or in any 1 other room (e.g. a hallway incl. a storage cupboard) and 1 follow-up inspection.

 

£132 - 1 mouse control treatment in a loft above an average size 2 - 4 bedroom residential property. 

 

Moderate mouse infestations

It often is the case that mice are already infesting and living in several areas of the house even though the whole property is not yet overrun by the vermin. In such a case, we focus our treatment on the areas where mice have either been seen or their signs (e.g. droppings) are present.

Our mouse control deal: 

(most frequently used by our customers)

£141 - 1 mouse control treatment in all key areas of a flat or house such as in the kitchen plus pantry, bathroom, (up to 4) utility and storage cupboards and a hallway (at the front and back doors). The areas to be treated may also include 1 bedroom or a living room in this deal. To keep our mouse treatments effective in larger than 4-bedroom houses, we need to lay down more bait stations with rodenticide plus traps and the price may be therefore higher.

Extending the treatment for a loft space or a (1-car) garage (recommended) adds £0 to this deal.

Severe mouse infestations

It might be you have a property that is severely infested with mice (mouse droppings are, or mice have been sighted, in most or all of the rooms. On this occasion, we would recommend treating all rooms as well as all other internal areas of the house or flat.

Our price of the treatment is based on the actual size of the property to-be-treated as follows:

£146 - 1 bedroom flat or a studio

£159 - 2-bed flat or house

plus £23 to include the loft

£172 - 3-bed flat or house

£185 - 4-bed house or flat

£199 - 5-bed house or flat

plus £34 to include the loft

Odour Management

 

You are unlikely to require bad smell removal 

in connection with mice or grey squirrels; however, you might need this if you have had a rat infestation in your house. We have products can effectively control rodent-born smells for up to 4 weeks which might occasionally be required after a rodenticidal rat control indoors.

Odour Kill

A comprehensive odour digester containing non-pathogenic bacteria and powerful vanilla essence for the immediate relief of bad odours whilst the enzymes start to break down the source of the odour. Application is in the form of a spray we do.

Odour Bag

These bags are a clean and simple solution to removing bad odours caused by dead rodents.

Simply place the bag near the source and it will absorb the bad smells usually within 24 hours.

Please contact us to enquire.

Disinfection compliments rodent control

Rats communicate and mark their territory by urinating everywhere they go, therefore, they represent a significant health risk. Rats are known to potentially carry nasty diseases which can spread to humans, often through rats’ urine or body coming into contact with food preparation surfaces and other areas that humans may touch. We recommend you to compliment our rodent control service with disinfection for extra safety of your family where rats and mice have been unwanted visitors of your home and to protect your customers with disinfecting the premises if the rodent problem has been in a place of your business. Discounted prices of disinfection (in connection with our rodent control) start from £30. Feel free to request more information about our disinfection service and pricing.
