How Can I Get Rats Out of My House?

Spotting a rat is one of the most scary experiences you can have in your home. A place that is supposed to be safe and secure is suddenly exposed to an unwanted guest that is a far larger, more destructive and more intelligent animal than your common house mouse. With four clawed feet that can scramble up almost any surface, sharp teeth that can gnaw through walls and a tail that acts as a fifth limb, rats are capable of infiltrating even the most clean and well-built home, where they steal food, damage property and spread disease. No one shrugs off spotting a rat, and the first thing you think is, how can I get rid of this dangerous pest? Step 1: traps. Step 2: Patience Naturally, the first thing you’ll want to do when you spot a rat is go on the offensive. The tricky thing is, rats are intelligent creatures that have adapted to have a trait called neophobia, or, fear of anything new – very handy for surviving in unknown territory. This can makes traps frustratingly ineffective for killing rats. Often, they’ll spot a trap, their neophobia kicks in and tells them it might be dangerous, and they simply walk around it. Thinking you didn’t put it in the right spot, you move the trap to somewhere else, resetting the rat’s neophobia again. You need to be patient. After about four or five days, that neophobia wears off and they accept the trap as part of their environment and they’ll then be too tempted for the bait to resist it. If you have more than one... read more

How to Get Rid of Mice – For Good

Most of the clients who contact us have tried and failed to get rid of mice themselves. People think laying down traps and poisons will do the trick, and may have some short term success, but in a few months find themselves sharing their home again with dirty, destructive, rapid-breeding families of mice. At Environ, we’re proud to call ourselves the best pest controllers in London and the number one enemy of mice in this city. Here are four tips to help you get mice out of your home and keep them gone. 1: Take away their food source Mice only make their homes where they have access to a food supply. Unfortunately, because they’re so small, they don’t need much to survive: crumbs left on the floor or surfaces; food that’s dropped behind the oven; bags of grains or pet food – these all provide more than enough for a mouse to live and breed. The more food mice have access to, the larger their families can grow. A healthy mouse family consists of an adult male, two or three females, four or five youngsters, a sub-dominant male and many babies. Their short gestation period allows a single breeding pair to produce a thousand offspring in one year, provided they have enough food to sustain the swarm. Unlike their larger cousins, rats, mice don’t need water to survive. They’re so small that they get enough moisture from the food that they eat, which means that we don’t have to inspect the drains when investigating a mouse infestation unless we believe that is where they infiltrated your property. Mouse... read more

How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths

As moth extermination experts, it’s no surprise that “How do I get rid of clothes moths?” is the most common question people ask us. But they’re asking the wrong question: what they should really be asking is, “How do I get rid of clothes moth larvae?” You see, it’s the larvae that do all the damage to your wardrobe. Adult clothes moths – the ones that you see bouncing off walls or scurrying along skirting boards – don’t even have mouths. Their sole purpose is to breed, and they do so at an alarming rate, with females laying up to 700 eggs in the month that they live. All it takes is a single mating pair to turn a moth-free house into a thriving clothes moth colony. The bad news: there’s no effective DIY solution Killing adult clothes moths is pretty simple. Pheromone traps and pesticide sprays will do the trick, but this will do almost nothing to help if your home is already infested. Clothes moths are elusive creatures that seek out dark, forgotten parts of your home and – unlike most moths – they often live their whole lives without ever flying. This means that if you’re seeing moths flying or crawling around your home, there’s likely to be many more that you’re not seeing, which will continue to breed and breed. By the time a clothes moth has become an adult, it’s already lived through the very hungry caterpillar stage of its life – so, while killing them might satisfy your need for revenge, it won’t undo the damage to your clothes. Unfortunately, if clothes moth... read more
