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 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.
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.
