Question - What Happens First?


Before anything happens we need to carry out a thorough rat and rodent inspection of the affected areas.

Anyone can lay rat bait and mouse traps, and in some cases this can achieve some level of control. A professional inspection by our trained operatives brings you a completely different level of rat control.

At The Bristol Rat Company we have sophisticated, professional equipment and products that are strictly controlled, so cannot be acquired by non professional operators.

What this means to you is Faster, Safer Control and a property that is SAFER - FASTER as a result.

Question - How Much Will Common Brown Rat Control Cost?


Significantly less than if you let them continue damaging and infesting your property - Remember they carry parasites and infections that can also cost you your health.

Being a specialist means our rat and mouse control services are faster and more flexible than many other providers. We are usually on site within hours or faster if it is an emergency, getting rid of rat and rodent problems quickly.

Rodent control prices start at just £78.00 for an inspection, or your inspection is free if you have a treatment. For emergencies, public holidays, weekends and out of hours services, prices may vary. Remember we can also provide rodent proofing to help keep out rats etc, after they have been controlled.

If you want to do it yourself - that's also fine - we will give you advice at the beginning and supply you with everything you need.

The pesticide products supplied will be for amateur use, so are not as effective as professional products although some of the bait boxes and traps are produced for both professional and amateur use.

If you find that you are unable to control things alone, then we are always there to step in with our professional control services as required.

Question - How Long Will It Take?


Most rodent populations are knocked down in a couple of weeks, moles are a little more difficult to treat swiftly, yet in general, a very large vermin infestation is often going to take much longer, depending on environmental factors such as bait resistance, bait shyness, cold conditions and levels of non bait food sources.

Where the rodents are difficult to track or the key source of rodents is difficult to find, we have a range of tools from high definition remote cameras to digital endoscopes to assist us. In essence - technology together with good old fashioned field craft, gives us the advantage.

In most situations an integrated approach, using a variety of control methods is far more successful than one that uses a single approach. We use integrated methods in the majority of our control operations as this is the most economically and environmentally beneficial method of control.

Q: What other Ways Can You Help Me?

rodent proofing


The Bristol Rat Company has qualified electricians who can inspect and test your entire electrical system for faults and damage caused by rodent activity.

We can also update older style electrical systems, reducing fire risks and the dangers of electrical accidents caused by electrocution from wires stripped bare by rats, squirrels and mice.


Damaged pipes like those leading into underfloor heating systems are a major hazard to both your properties structural integrity and of course electrical injury. We have qualified Plumbers from that will quickly inspect and if required, replace or repair damaged pipes and equipment.

Drain Repairs and Digital Camera Inspections

Very often the rodent problems we see are a result of rats getting into property through damaged, faulty or badly designed sewer systems.

We also have the facilities and expertise to carry out a full inspection of the sewer system and drainage of the property. Where damage is found we will carry out remediation work to protect the property.

Loft Insulation

Insulation is one of the most significant areas of contamination risk and is regularly overlooked.

Rodents nest and live between layers, depositing huge quantities of droppings, urine and nesting material infested with insect pests.

We are able to undertake a highly effective decontamination processes in place to ensure insulation is quickly and effectively replaced and surrounding surfaces fully disinfected with a sophisticated product that kills, viruses, bacteria and many other types of microorganism.
