Rodent Control And Disinfectant Services In A Chiddingfold Kitchen
Rodents are able to squeeze through narrow spaces. The void space under a row of kitchen units is appealing as the rats or mice can live there happily without being seen.
Often on a pest survey there will a structural defect allowing rats to enter from the drains or wall cavity into your kitchen.
Rats will steal this food and take it back to its nest to hoard. If left undetected these rats are likely to breed in the drains, wall cavity and loft space.
Like most pests, rats come inside your premises in the search of water, food, and shelter. The kitchen is where you keep your food, there are safe crawl spaces, it’s warm and entry can often be found via the masonry around the kitchen water & drainage pipe work, so naturally, rats are often found here if in the main premises.
Keep in mind that they can find their way into your pantry and eat through boxes of food, flour, cereal, biscuits or anything else. Other things that attract rats into your kitchen include:
- Food that is left out in the open, on the kitchen counter or on the table.
- Leaky or dripping pipework where the rats can find a source of water.
- An open or easily accessed rubbish bin
- Pet food and water bowls.
Rodent Control For Our Client’s Chiddingfold Kitchen
In order to permanently resolve the problem of rodent control in our client Chiddigford’s home we disinfected the entire kitchen with an industrial-strength disinfectant called PX Lepto which is a product used by pest controllers and other professionals for treating areas that have come into contact with rodent droppings, urine, nesting materials or carcasses.
Rodent Proofing And Monitoring
Once the rodent control was completed and all indications were there were no rats and the area was completely disinfected. We then filled potential rat entry points into the kitchen and set motion-activated cameras to ensure the problem had been resolved.
