Putting rat poison down won't always get rid of your rat problems for good, but Avon Pest Control will

If you have rat problems in your home you may be thinking about getting rid of them with poison – this, after all, is the way people have done it for a long time. While it is true that poison works, it is not effective if you are dealing with more than a couple of rats. In fact, although poison has been used for rat eradication worldwide, their numbers only continue to grow.

There are two problems that you will face if you choose to use rat poison. The first is that you will not kill them all – you may be able to get one or two but the rest will catch on and avoid anything that has the poison in it. The second problem is this – once the rats eat the poison they curl up and die in hard to reach places. In a few days they start to decompose and then the smell permeates your home. The smell of dead and decomposing rats is very hard to get rid of.

If you suspect that you have a rat problem it is vital to call a professional pest control company straightaway before they breed and their numbers become even bigger. This is the only way to ensure your rat problem is taken care of. Exterminators are experienced in dealing with rats regardless of the numbers. They have the proper equipment and chemicals to make sure that they get every last rat in your home. Better yet, they block any entrance that rats may use to come into your home – they usually come in through small holes in the property or through the roof.

A professional exterminator will block all the gaps to ensure that you don’t get any further rat problems. One such company that services Leamington Spa, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Kenilworth, Warwick, Coventry & surrounding areas is Avon Pest Control. We have many years of experience in rat extermination so you can be sure that we will help you. We also have the right chemicals and techniques. Avon Pest Control understand that people don’t usually budget for rat infestations so we offer our clients affordable but effective solutions. Another reason why people in Leamington Spa, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Kenilworth, Warwick, Coventry & surrounding areas trust Avon Pest control is the fact that we are discreet. Most people don’t want neighbors knowing that they have an infestation in their homes. If privacy and discretion are something that you value just let them know and we will come in an unmarked van. Once the extermination is over we will take away all rodents that we have killed leaving your home completely pest-free. You can find out more on our website,

Don’t let one mouse turn into hundred; call Avon Pest Control without delay

You have seen a mouse or two in your home and are wondering whether you should do anything about it. The truth is that many homeowners don’t take mice in the home seriously until they have an infestation. If you see a mouse it is important to investigate and find out whether there are more. You will hear them scurrying around at night and you will also see rat droppings around the house. Check furniture that is made out of wood and fabric – mice love to eat that kind of thing. You may also find mice nests in the attic or in warm, dark corners. 

The reason why you should take mice seriously is how fast they breed. They breed exceptionally quickly; you may think you only have one or two mice in your home but before you know it this number can increase to hundreds because they breed so quickly. To break it down, mice have a gestation period of 3 weeks and they give birth to an average of 8 mice. If you don’t take action right away you can be sure that before long your home will be overrun and you will have to fork out a lot of money to do repairs to your property. 

Some people recommend rat poison as a solution. That is not the way to go; for starters, you will not get more than a few. The other thing about poisoning mice is that once they die in hidden corners they will stink up your home. The best thing to do when you suspect that you have rats is to call in a pest control company. They are experienced in rodent removal and the great thing with them is that they provide a lasting solution – you will not have mice in your home for a long time. One such company is Avon Pest Control. 

They are experts in rat removal in Leamington Spa, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Kenilworth, Warwick, Coventry & surrounding areas. Their exterminators will ensure that your home is mouse-free and they will close all the gaps that allowed mice in. They come preferred not just for their experience but also for their promptness – they arrive in the shortest time possible and they will get rid of rats in a speedy manner. All exterminators are very professional and pleasant. They have been trained to be discreet – your neighbours will not know that you are having an extermination done.

Speak to us about how we can eradicate your mice problems

House mice scientifically known as Mus Musculus are one of the most annoying pests in the UK and their elusiveness from the human makes them harder to control hence the continued destruction. They live in a variety of conditions both home and farm where they consume and destroy food meant for humans and pets. Through this, they contaminate food-preparation surfaces with their faeces, which can contain bacteria that may cause food poisoning and also destroy structures through their constant gnawing.

The indicators of a mice problems are; mice droppings, fresh tracks and gnawing, smudge on the walls and floors, scratching noises at night, mouse nests that are made from a fibrous material or finely shred papers and often found in a protected area and they also have a characteristic musky odor. A more significant indicator is their appearance during daylight.
A mouse feeds on cereals. However, it is capable of feeding on other foods by nibbling small bits from various places. Mice have a good sense of hearing, tasting smelling and touching and are good climbers where they can run vertically on a rough surface. The gestation period of a mouse is 19 to 21 days, and they mate throughout the year. Therefore, making the reproduction very easy and within a short time, if the mice are not controlled could result in diverse effects on you and the stored food. With this kind of adaptations, it could be frustrating for you to control them on your own. This is why we are here for you.

We use integrated pest control method to eradicate mice on your property completely. The primary methods in the integrated pest control method include setting traps for the mice, and we propose the construction of pest proof structures where the building has no entries for the mice to get in proper sanitation. Biological control is also applicable where cats track down the mice and eat them. Mice nest eradication can be done through burning the nests found.

This includes damaging exteriors and interiors, along with congregating and infesting basements, attics, garages and crawlspaces. Birds also love to nest and feed their young in chimneys, including pigeons, crows, brown birds, black birds, sparrow, and at times – even large hawks and eagles.

There are never any pesticides used, and only large and predatory birds are dealt with in a somewhat aggressive manner. All other birds are simply removed off the property in a humane manner.

What does a common wasp look like and what damage can they do?

With summer in full swing, wasp infestation is at an all time high. This is due to above average heat and soaring temperatures, which see wasps, congregate in residential and commercial properties. Most wasps nest structures are made of mud and are usually located on the sides and tops off your exteriors. However, these nests can also be formed in attics, basements, crawlspaces, and even inside homes. The common wasp mainly has three functions; to look for prey, breed, and feed their young. They also possess dangerous stingers that can cause serious problems for humans and domesticated pets. Wasps are also attracted to bright and vibrant colors – and if they feel in danger – can literally swarm a person, dog, or cat. With years of extensive wasp removal experience, Avon Pest Control can safely remove wasp nests and prevent infestation in all properties.

What do Wasps look like?
Wasps come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The only constant is that they have wings and stingers to protect themselves from potential predators. The common wasp is usually black and yellow in color – similar to a bee. They are, however, larger than bees and have brown colored wings. They also have two large antennae in the front of the head, which helps them track down and kill prey for feeding. Like bees, wasps do emit a buzzing sound and this gets louder when they feel they are in danger. Wasps do congregate for protection – and like bees – send out signals to other wasps when potential prey or predators are present. Wasps possess deadly and sometime fatal stings if they are attacked or provoked.

What to do about Wasp Infestation?
Wasp infestation must be eliminated and eradicated ASAP. In fact, failure to act quickly can result in more wasp nests being formed. Avon Pest Control has the tools and expertise to remove wasps and their nests from all your living spaces. This is done by:
·         Spraying industry leading pesticides that kill wasps within their nests and enclaves.
·         Removing wasp nests and mud packs which house their young.
·         Blocking access and exit routes in basements, attics, crawlspaces and garages where wasps love to breed and enter.
·         Utilizing long sticks to knock down nests and eliminating wasps with sprays that that terminate them onsite.
