Our London rat control service can be broken down in four aspects:
- Rodent proofing
- Drain work
Prevention, treatment and rodent proofing can be combined to offer an integrated pest control solution that will offer you long term results.
In some instances, it may also be necessary to carry out some drain work if a link has been established.
What is the price of rat treatment in London?
Inoculand Ltd offers a rat treatment service for a flat fee of £129+VAT. Our treatment consists of two visits within three months. We can place rat bait stations outdoors and/or carry out a rat treatment indoors. Whenever possible we also like to inspect and test the inspection chamber for rat activity.
Rodent proofing: the sooner the better
It is unacceptable to have rats roaming inside a kitchen and contaminating work surfaces and food. We therefore always put a strong recommendation on having the rodent proofing carried out as soon as possible.
Rodent proofing is a separate service that comes with a one year guarantee. It can be contracted anytime within six months from the initial treatment. A quote for rodent proofing would normally be provided after the initial rat treatment.
A rat infestation in London may affect any type of property with various degrees of consequences. Past the initial shock, most residents worry about their health and potential damage to their property.
Rats are often linked to the sewage system and possibly drain faults. Whenever possible we will want to check the inspection chamber for signs of rat activity. Resolving a rat infestation fully may involve having to carry out drain work to prevent more rats from coming in.
Where is the rat problem coming from?
- Generally linked to the sewage system
- A missing rodding eye cap at manhole level
- A break in the main sewer line or in a domestic sewer pipe
- Rats gnawing through PVC pipes
- Rats coming from nearby areas
- Rats feeding on rubbish containers
- Rats taking up residence in overgrown gardens
Our rat pest control service
Our pest control technicians will first survey your property and identify areas that need to be treated. More importantly, they will prioritise identifying entry points and advise on the appropriate rodent proofing recommendations.
Our rat proofing service with one year guarantee can be implemented indoors or outdoors. We can also rat proof bin sheds of residential block of flats or commercial warehouses. Sometimes the proofing can also involve to placing air vent covers or metal composite plates at the base of a door.
The materials we use can include: mesh, board, timber, wire wool, sealant and composites metal plates. But Inoculand LTD does not use expanding foam as rodents can easily gnaw through it. The one year guarantee is in place so the clients have all the peace of mind they require.
Rats and drains: CCTV drain surveys and repairs
Upon inspection we may identify rat activity at drain level that could be the result of an underlying problem. To prevent the rat infestation becoming a recurrent issue over the years, our pest control technicians will recommend an appropriate course of action to put a stop to it.
How to stop rats from coming in?
In most cases, a simple missing or damaged element will allow rats into the domestic sewage system and ultimately in your property. The solution is then as simple as replacing it.
In other instances, a drain pipe may be compromised and require repairs. The most standard drain work involves CCTV, Jetting, Digging or Lining.
What can be done?
