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.
