Merry Christmas from Abate!

20 Dec

During the Christmas period it is inevitable that there will be extra food or scraps left over in your home, so make sure you don’t attract any unwanted pests this year.

At Abate we recommend that you wrap any extra food to be saved properly and stored away in an air tight location such as a tub or in the fridge. If you do have any food waste make sure you dispose of it correctly as there is a chance it could attract rats or mice.

It’s not just food that attracts rodents into our homes. A cold snap will drive them into buildings in search of shelter.

Our team of qualified pest control technicians have dealt with many cases of rodent infestations. This experience has enabled us to build up an in-depth knowledge of rodents and how to deal with them in the best way. Whether it’s at home or within the workplace, we will be able to provide you with expert advice on rodent control as well as the best way to handle an infestation.

Here’s a few tips on how to avoid a problem with rats and mice:

  • Block gaps and holes – A gap under your door, pipe holes in walls, overhanging trees, cables or even a door left ajar can encourage rodents into your home.
  • Keep it clean and tidy – Rodent control starts with good housekeeping. Rubbish and overgrown vegetation should be completely removed from the outside of your home or commercial building.
  • Protect your food – Loose open foods should be kept in rodent-proof containers, denying them access to your food and any contamination. Rodents such as rats or mice may also go for your pet’s food so make sure that their food is not left out all day.
