What Does A Rodent Inspection Cost & Include?
Pest control inspections in Bristol start at just £78.00 for visual inspections that don’t require tools or other equipment and include a summary report with invoice and photos where pertinent to the report. In cases where we travel outside Bristol, the inspection fees start at £95.00. Structural inspections requiring tools and associated specialist equipment are quoted for and charged on a case by case basis.
Pest Inspection Reports For Court and Legal Reasons
Because of our expertise in this area of pest control we are regularly asked to step in and provide detailed reports for inclusion in court and legal proceedings. These documents require a great deal of time to compile and publish so our charges for this kind of report start at £249.00.
What Does A Rodent Inspection Look At?
Pest control inspections are an opportunity to quickly assess the scale of a rodent problem. This process can last minutes in a small property or hours in a very large property. When it comes to dealing with rodents, our clinical experience comes into its own.
We always follow a medical-style procedure for assessing a rodent problem. This might sound strange, but as you are about to learn, this unique method of inspection works very well.
Every pest problem has a history or story behind it, and the history is our entry point into your world and that of the rodents you’re being pestered by. A good history makes a huge difference to the outcome of a pest problem.
It saves us a great deal of time and very often saves you a great deal of money. Knowing what questions to ask only comes with the direct experience of rodents. We cross-match the information you give us with the hundreds of other customer jobs to distil a treatment pathway that leads you towards a permanent solution and not just a treatment.
This part of our rodent inspection process will help us build a picture of the scale and complexity of your rodent problems. Piece by piece, we will begin to build a picture from the jigsaw of information.
The initial examination of your property is always a visual one. Occasionally we need to carry out structural or drain investigations, and the work required to do this will always be quoted separately, and be completed at another time when we have a team on-site to complete it.
Where required by the history, we will try and take a look into your drain inspection points for signs of activity. Sometimes these inspection points are concealed beneath floors, concrete and paving, so require a more robust structural inspection and possibly special equipment. Where easy and safe access is available we may also decide it is necessary to check in your loft, crawl spaces and cellars etc.
Should an additional investigation be required that might include drain surveys or inspection holes to be cut in walls, floors and ceilings etc, then our specialist teams are on hand to tackle this as required as part of a separate structural survey.
Once the inspection process is complete and all the evidence is to hand, we can make a diagnosis. The diagnosis means we have identified what we believe is the root cause of your rodent problem. Now we can solve it!
What happens after proofing and repairs are complete?
We always recommend that a period of monitoring using bait is carried out after we complete any work to test the patency of any measures we have implemented. This will normally last around four weeks because rats can live for about a week without water or four weeks in the absence of a reliable source of safe nutrition.
What happens if pests come back?
Although our success in this area is exceptional, there will always be the chance that the initial inspection, treatment and remediation activities will miss additional, well-concealed vulnerabilities in your property.
It’s very common to inspect properties that have been subject to decades of rodent activity and many different DIY and professional repairs that regularly make our job far more difficult.
Concrete, wire, glass, cement, rubble, expanding foam and sealants of every description cover, conceal and in some cases actually support rodent activity by reducing our access to entry points, inspection points and drains.
Every remedial activity we carry out will serve to disrupt, close down or eliminate areas of territory that rodent populations will be capable of exploiting. This makes it easier for us to tackle them as we move forward.
Question – What other Ways Can You Help Me?
Rewiring Of Damaged Wiring 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.
Plumbing Repairs 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 that will quickly inspect and if required, replace or repair damaged pipes and equipment.
Specialist Drain Inspections & Repairs Very often the rodent problems we see are a result of rats getting into the property through damaged, faulty or badly designed sewer systems. When required we 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 – Decontamination & Replacement 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 process 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 microorganisms.
We also use the Bristol Pest Control Services of PestBristol, which are experts in insect control to handle the fumigation of properties affected by flea, bedbug and lice infestations.
