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.
