I have been asked to undertake some recent new work in Chorley. Rats have been using a gap under the brickwork to the rear of a house to gain access through the cavity to the kitchen area. As you can see from the pictures, the large hole behind the fridge in the kitchen, as black smear marks around it from were the rats have been passing through on a regular basis. Rats have a natural grease on their body which they smear on to surfaces when they pass through things. I have placed poison at the entrance to hole and under the floor in the house and an external box in the yard next to the large hole under the brickwork as shown in the picture.
Another pest control job I recently carried out, was in Preston. I was requested to attend a doctors' surgery in Preston town centre as the staff had found chewed face masks in a cupboard within one of their treatment rooms. I attended and removed the plinth from under the cupboard and found a large hole going under the floor. There were chewed up face masks that had been pulled under the cupboard that would have been used for nesting material. I placed loose bait under the cupboard and then surveyed outside for ingress points. As you can see from the pictures, I found a hole in the brickwork underneath the fire escape to the rear of the building. After treatment of the rats has been carried out, I will be proofing this hole.
This is some work that I’ve been carrying out in Wigan this last week on an industrial site. Rats have gnawed through the shuttering board left in by the builders on a large industrial building which contains Pet food. They have been getting in to the food, which has made the job extremely difficult to get the rats to feed off the poison. But with the help of the on site staff, we have managed to concrete them out of the main building, then used carefully placed glue boards to catch the rats trapped inside. Then I have used a contact foam in the hole in side the cavity to get to the rest of the rats. As you can see from the two pictures, the hole they had made to get into the cavity from outside and the void they were using to travel around the building between the brickwork, underneath the steel work
I have started a new contract in Bolton with a large food manufacturer, covering the inside of the building, monitoring for rodents and insects, and external for rat problems. I will be carrying out some proofing work in the next few days, due to some minor holes in the walls of the building. A full assessment will be made and preventative measures taken.
I have taken on another large commercial contract in Preston for a large car showroom which as been having a mouse problem and they cannot afford for the mice to get in to the very expensive cars and start chewing on the wiring or the interior. I’ve placed plastic mouse boxes around the work shop and car storage area to protect against this. I’m also going to be carrying out some proofing work on there behalf outside of the building to prevent anymore mice from getting in.
I have also been asked to take on the pest control contract at a very well known pub in Preston. They have been having trouble with mice in the bar area and with all the Covid restrictions and with the pub not being open much, the mice have take a foothold. So this week I will be going in to start the task of ridding them of the mouse infestation.
I have started a job in Standish, Wigan for noises in the loft which turns out to be Rats. I have put a treatment in place (i.e. baited the loft, and under the bath). I have surveyed along the terrace of houses and located a fault on one soil pipe. The rats have tunneled out of the ground, up the side of the soil stack. This will require digging out and repairing any drain fault found and then concreting. I also inspected the manhole chambers in the garden and found several fresh rat droppings in each drain as shown in the picture The work is ongoing.
I have been asked by a church in Chorley to undertake some proofing work in the bell tower to stop pigeons and squirrels gaining access to the church. There are 4 large louvred openings in the tower to that need covering with wire mesh on the inside and also wind proofing material to keep them out. This is a very large job as you can see from the pictures below.
I have been called out to a premises in Chorley where grey squirrels have made a hole in the gutter and have gained access into the loft. I have surveyed the property and set traps in the most efficient places and on the next visit, I will remove the squirrels. I will then be able to proof the property so that it can stay squirrel free in future.
I went out yesterday to a job where rats had been seen in the shed; a complaint off New Hall Lane, Preston. On arrival I found several rat holes around the base of the shed and lots of rat droppings in side. The lady who owned the house has been seeing rats each day, coming and going from her wheelie bin and back into the shed through holes in the woodwork, made by the rats I have placed two tamper resistant bait stations outside, to the rear of the shed and placed 3 trays of loose bait inside behind the locked door as the owner has a cat and who don't want this to come in contact with the poison I will return next week to check and replenish any bait that as been taken.
I was asked by a school in Liverpool to treat their mole issue, I surveyed and set up mole traps yesterday. As you can see from the pictures they have a significant number of mole hills damaging the grassed areas around the school. Moles can cause significant damage to your grassland by tunnelling through the soil. With heavy infestations, the ground can become unstable so it is always advisable to get a professional pest controller to remedy the problem as early as possible.
