Rural Rat Control
The terrible rat and mouse control system used by the Council and others of Bait-Stink-Flies-Repeat fails people in Bristol, again and again!
90% of all rat problems inside residential properties come from drain faults beneath or around your home. 80% of people inherit a rat problem when they move into a new house. Most pest control companies never mention your drains!
Does that mean 80% of residents were failed by "bait only" rat control in Bristol and decided to move? The facts make you wonder!
We charge £78.00 for a rodent inspection in Bristol, which we waive if you decide to use us to solve your problem.
Can't Afford A Treatment? Don't worry - we can also explain how to get faster results from DIY methods if you prefer.
If you would like us to put bait down like Bristol City Council pest control, we charge £179.00 for three visits. Bait is placed on visits one and two and lifted and replaced with non-toxic monitoring bait on visit Number 3.
If you want our 30 day advanced rat control service and would like the problem gone for good, then combined costs average between £418.00 and £1500.00.
Think rat extermination and exclusion is expensive? What's the alternative? Moving house - The average cost of moving home in 2018 is between £3000.00 and £9000.00. The cost of rewiring after a rat infestation can easily exceed £3000.00. Remediation of contaminated loft insulation is around £2000.00.
None of these outcomes has eliminated the rats! Either you still have a rat problem, or you've passed it on to someone else!
Groundworks and drain investigations are never cheap, but neither is ongoing and cumulative damage caused by rodents destroying your home each time they visit you from the sewer system!
10-20% of rodent infestations involve a neighbour, and many are uncooperative! Not everyone hates rats, and some residents have no problem with vermin living in their home.
Terrible news if you have a rat phobia because you cannot force someone to fix a problem in their property or improve their cleanliness.
If you occupy a terraced property, semi-detached house or live in a flat, the complexities of getting a neighbour to help is sometimes daunting and impossible to achieve, even if you are paying!
We can advise you how to get the best help from your insurers and others who might help with costs and permissions. Wessex Water is also very helpful if shared drains are affected or implicated.
Work can be guaranteed, but outcomes cannot because they need testing over time. A large proportion of the work requires us to reveal problems caused by decades of neglect.
A good example might be the pipe we discovered in Clifton with 24 inches of concrete over it. Repairs are easy - it's access, groundworks and final remediation where things can get complicated and expensive.
In this example, a property in Southampton had Council and private pest controllers visit over a 13 year period. They also had a drain survey that said nothing was wrong! We took two teams from Bristol with us. Within three hours we had discovered, sealed and solved the problem forever. The customer no-longer needed to sell their home.
A customer in Bristol paid a national company for 20 years to get rid of rats in their cellar - We visited and notified them that a drain repair would solve their problems forever. So why had the other company never mentioned drains - well, with 20 years of contract payments, why would they?
A dental surgery in Bristol asked for a second opinion after a national company failed to get rid of rats in a sterile room!
During our initial inspection, we investigated and discovered the national company had placed a single trap next to an open drain beneath a work counter. They never mentioned the open drain to the dental practice but still wanted to charge £750.00 for another three visits.
We solved their rat problem in one visit.
We get called every year to people, told they've tried everything, only for us to find a perfect solution.
When it needs doing, and it needs doing right, WE ARE THE EXPERTS PEOPLE CALL, and we are very proud of this.
From the first meeting I felt confident that Simon could, and would, resolve the problem for us. And so far we have had no re-occurrence, which is fantastic !
We contracted Simon to rid our area of a large number of rats. Simon's knowledge was amazing and over a period of a month he did exactly what I paid for, including many return visits to double check. Very efficient and effective service.
Simon has been the only pest control company to resolve my rat problem. He is professional, efficient, punctual and I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending him.
