Eternally linked with the spread of disease and parasites, rodents are a pest best left avoided.
Categorised by their two front incisors (teeth) and their constant need to gnaw, rodents are a well-known pest commonly associated with connotations of fear and avoidance. Illusive, shy and fast-moving in nature, rodents can be extremely difficult to catch let alone kill. It is therefore important to be able to identify when you have rodents in your home or business so you can get us in as soon as possible to take care of the little nasties.
