How to Do Rodent Control?

1) Inspection
From basement to attic, our rodent specialist will survey all reachable areas of your home and identify how rats and mice get access. From then on we can prepare a short and long-term strategy for your property.

2) Eradication & Exclusion
In order to get rodents out, we use traps, cages, bait, night vision cameras. Then we can undertake the proofing of all entry points to your home to prevent pests from coming back in the future.

3) Follow-up Visit(s)
At regular intervals, we will survey the property again and all the entry points that have been repaired and areas that have been treated. We will also look for possible new entry points or weakness in the building.

From the moment my management company put me in touch with Owl Services, I felt like I was in good hands. A time that suited both myself and the technician (Paul) was easily arranged, and when he attended, he was prompt, efficient and able to put my mind at ease/answer all of my questions. 10/10 recommend.

I had a initial query regarding stock availability so I emailed a couple of questions late night and I received a phone call at start of their business day with clear answers. As they were only a 20 drive away and they had a link with directions, I was able to drive there and collect my purchase on the same day. Very efficient and helpful team.

Came across Owl Pest Control on the internet after discovering a very unwelcome guest - a rat, sunbathing in my back garden during lockdown! Not a sight one ever likes to see! In a panic I rang Owl Pest Control for advice and bought a number of products. The company were truly fab, responding in a courteous manner at all times via both phone and email. Their products are delivered in a very prompt manner via courier service.As an individual I'm obsessed with excellent customer service and have to say Owl Pest Control get my seal of approval. One of the traps I purchased went faulty...through no fault of theirs and they immediately replaced it with no hassle and even threw in a second.Don't hesitate in contacting them or buying their products online. Thanks Owl Pest Control!!

I have been using owl pest control for the past 8 months. From the moment I walked in to the building I had 100pc confidence in their ability. What was amazing was the amount of time they spent with me ensuring that I only purchase the right product. Excellent advise from all the lads with thorough explanations about everything. While you hope to never have to visit these type of shops and services I would really recommend that if you do these guys are the best in town. The products that they supply are excellent in quality and value. Thanks again to all in Owl pest control

I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS COMPANY . Brilliant! Very helpful, Andrew gave me lots of advice on the phone, which lead me to find a place that rodents were entering, it was not at all obvious, so I had previously overlooked it. I am very grateful for the help, solving this problem. I had been trying to track it down for months. Now I have peace!Thank you so much.The only place I could find that is interested in actually solving the problem, not just putting down poison.Thanks again.I

I am working in a large open space and have 10 flies in my office daily.. I purchased different products online as I was trying to save money but nothing was getting rid of them as even if the product did work initially, it lost its power quickly. I rang 4 companies in Ireland and explained my circumstances and they all tried to sell me expensive products, explaining that as it was an open space I would need a strong bulb. When I phoned Owl Pest Control they sold me a great product at an affordable rate. Of course with the open space the flies come back, but within minutes they're dead. Absolutely delighted, they're an honest business, wouldn't go anywhere else!

Facts about rodents

Financial Losses

Rats and mice follow and attack and contaminate our food from fields, orchards, livestock facilities, all the way through transport, storage & processing, and finishing in restaurants, supermarkets, and our homes. They also spoil tons of food by contaminating it with their excrement, urine and fur.

This pipe was taken from a flooded apartment

In buildings and homes rodents damage doors, ceilings, floors and walls as a result of their burrowing and gnawing activity. They also regularly chew on electrical wiring and utility pipes which have resulted in explosions, fires, indoor flooding, equipment loss, and power shortages.

Only two types are considered a major pest in Ireland: the Norway rat and the house mouse.

Health pests rodents

Mice and Rats have been responsible for the spread of many diseases to people and domestic animals, mainly due to their habits of leaving and travelling in sewers, garbage, etc. There are several rodent-transmitted diseases which cause concern such as leptospirosis (Weil’s disease), salmonellosis, plague, murine typhus, rat-bite fever, and hantaviruses which are now discussed widely in the context of coronavirus pandemic.

Some people also develop an allergic reaction to rat or house mice droppings, which can be responsible for asthma-related symptoms.

Rodent Biology & Reproduction

Adult mice weight 15-30g and rats 250-500g. Mice are very inquisitive and walk around 200 metres per day. A single mouse can also produce 40 to 100 droppings per day so their presence can create a lot of problems very quickly.

Rodents are very successful breeders. Every three weeks a female mouse produces between 4 and 7 pups per litter (8-12 for rats) and will typically have a total of 8 litters in her lifetime (1 to 2 years). This means that rodent colonies can grow very rapidly.

Rodents consume most types of food. Rats eat 22-30g of food per day and mice 3 to 5g

Rat teeth can chew through metal

Rodent control

Rodents are successful because of their ability to adapt quickly to any sort of environment. They are omnivorous and mostly active at night when they can’t be noticed by people. This makes them difficult to control.

Using rat and mice poison on its own is rarely enough. Effective control of rat or mice infestation requires an integrated approach in structural pest control operations involving inspections, sanitation, rodent-proofing, trapping and rodenticide programs to reduce their numbers quickly.
