Pest Proofing Services
On completion of our comprehensive baiting programme, Integrated Pest Management Ltd offer an after care pest proofing service to deny rodents further ingress into your property.
Pest Stop is the systematic inspection of all likely ingress points to a property as well as any structural defects around floor/wall junctions.
The service is conducted following a comprehensive procedure to ensure no possible entry points are overlooked. The service is undertaken by qualified pest controllers with an understanding of rodent behaviour and control. Where ‘accessible’ points of ingress are identified we will block using appropriate rodent proof materials such as, but not limited to:
- Wire wool
- Fire cement
- Aluminium plate
- Bristle strip
- Galvanised mesh
- Polyurethane foam
- PVC sheet
Sometimes materials are used in conjunction with each other – for example wire wool will be used as a backing material before overlay with silicone mastic or expanding foam to prevent mice from gnawing back through.
Will the proofing work?
Integrated Pest Management are experienced in all pest related issues. We currently have a 98% success rate in denying rodents access to ‘living area’ of your property. However, it is important to know that rodents are tenacious creatures and can gnaw through other unprotected areas of your property. This aside, our experienced team are very successful in this service.
How and why do the mice get into my property?
Rodents, much like humans like to be warm, dry and have a possible regular food source. Your homes are likely to fulfil all of these criteria. Rodents can enter under door gaps, through air bricks and gaps around supply services. If your property is terraced, semi-detached or you are in a ‘multiple occupancy’ building, they will also infest from neighbouring areas. Any hole or gap large enough to push a biro through will potentially allow mice to enter your property.
How much will it cost?
Our proofing treatments start from as little as £18.00 exc VAT for one single airbrick. The total cost for the work will be provided to you in writing following a full site survey by our operatives, as you can appreciate its difficult for us to provide a cost for this over the telephone without carrying out a free survey. However, we are very competitive!!!
