Prevention is key, so to make sure you reduce the chances of an infestation you can do these simple things:

  • Keep your garden or premises clear of rubbish and overgrowth this environment makes for a lovely home for a rodents nest
  • Seal cracks and holes outside of the property including areas where utilities and pipes enter
  • Make sure your bins are not exposing foods or bin bags left outside. Pests will be attracted to feed and set up home nearby.
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of rubbish regularly.
