Urban mice infestations are increasing year on year and baiting programmes are proving to be very ineffective in gaining long term control.
The most effective and direct control method for any pest is habitat exclusion – prevent mice from accessing your property internals. This makes existing infestation levels unsustainable, leading to an inevitable population crash.
Our specialised Superproofing service has been developed over the past 16 years with the specific purpose of excluding mice from accessing the internal confines of a dwelling with long-term effect.
Superproofing achieves this through the systematic inspection of all water, gas and electrical entry points to a property, as well as any structural defects around floor and wall interfaces, fittings and fixtures.
The service is conducted following a comprehensive inspection procedure to ensure no possible entry points are overlooked.
The service is undertaken by pest controllers with an understanding of mice ecology, who are also trained to understand building construction and service line installation.
Where possible entry points are identified, these are proofed with a variety of proofing compounds selected depending on the substrate and gap size involved – These proofing products are safe, non-toxic and as durable as the surrounding substrate they are applied to. For example we don’t use expanding foam.
Superproofing involves no fixture removal and no rodenticides, making it extremely cost-effective, low impact and environmentally-safe.
On works completion, a certificate specific to the property will be issued to the owner confirming a guarantee period of 1 year in respect of any further occurrences of mice entry to the property internals.
