Pest Extermination South London and the Surrounding Areas

The diverse and busy city of London attracts a wide range of pests from the surrounding countryside. They are opportunistic scavengers looking for food in rubbish, discarded waste, parks and gardens and in our homes and business premises. Luckily, there are a number of experienced and reliable pest control companies operating in the area. They have years of experience in the industry and offer a fast, friendly, efficient service to local home owners and businesses. They can help with pest extermination South London and the surrounding areas for rat, mouse, fleas, flies, spiders, bed bugs, woodworm, wasps and cockroaches.

Rodent infestations in the UK are a common problem. They can cause damage to buildings and electrical wires as they chew through them, making the wiring live, or make their way into the insulation in roof spaces. They are a serious fire risk and can lead to water damage as they chew through pipes and cause blockages. Often the best solution is to call in a professional rat control technician who can inspect and identify any cracks and crevices rats could enter from. These can be sealed using foam, wool wire or sealant. During the rat control process, the pest controller will also look for signs of urine and droppings left behind by rats and mice as these are indicators of an active infestation. If the infestation is severe a trapping service might be required, although many infestations are treated with baiting only.

Mice can also be a real nuisance in our properties, especially when they start nesting and chewing through insulation, leading to water and gas leaks. There are a number of signs that you may have a mouse infestation such as gnawing marks, shredded materials, grease marks on skirting boards and walls and a distinctive smell. Mice are a common pest in homes, but they can also be found in shops and restaurants.

Another common pest problem is ant infestations in the garden. They can be very unpleasant and are difficult to eradicate, so it is best to contact a company that offers a full insect control service. This can include a full survey of the garden and recommendations to keep ants out.
