CASE STUDIES - Multipest (2023)

RATS

Case Study 1.

CASE STUDIES - Multipest (1)MP were called out to a house in Hillingdon which had had a problem with rats for about 3 years. The householders were totally dismayed as they had called out several pest control companies who all did exactly the same thing every time. We used our knowledge and professionalism by using a range of techniques including CCTV and worked out exactly why the rats kept coming. We were capturing approximately 4 to 5 rats every 3-5 days so there was obviously a major issue. Gradually, by utilising the range of products and more importantly our expert knowledge, we were soon able to announce that the house was pest free.

Case Study 2.

We were called out to a commercial development in Watford where rats had been gaining entry to flats above a courtyard. Other companies had tried and failed but by implementing several proven control measures and our expertise, the situation was soon under control. Due to the location and therefore the risk of further rat activity, a service agreement with regular visits ensures that all is kept firmly under control.

Case Study 3.

CASE STUDIES - Multipest (2) Rats were active in an office block loft space above a shop in Uxbridge, Middlesex, where they were gnawing on electrical cables, thus causing a major fire risk and health hazard for the occupants of the premises. A thorough inspection of the premises by MP revealed ingress points that the rodents were utilising to gain access into the loft area.These were sealed with rodent proof material and an intensive baiting and trapping programme initiated to control the activity within the loft area. Over a period of 4 weeks MP visited the property and completed high quality and professional treatments that gained control over the infestation and ensured that no further ingress by rats would be possible. A continued baiting programme within the premises that entailed regular visits by MP throughout the year has ensured that the premises have remained pest free since.

Case Study 4

We were called out to an estate of flats and houses in Greenford UB6. As a service to all of our customers, our technicians try to note other factors which could be a problem in the future and not just the pest control issues, although some can be linked i.e. missing fence panels allowing fox access or deep shrubbery allowing safe areas for rats to burrow.

On a routine inspection, several rat burrows were noted, also noted were a subsiding wall, falling fence panels, broken drains, heavy shrubbery and a badly maintained neighbours garden. Heavy rat activity was also noted in all areas. This had all developed since our last visit

CASE STUDIES - Multipest (3)

All of this information was noted on the site treatment report and, along with a detailed report and pictures, sent to the client on the very same day!

MP recommended that a two part burrow treatment were to be carried out, prior to this, the foliage needed to be maintained. Also the drain areas need repairing, preferably prior to or during burrow treatments.

It was also noted that the subsiding wall and falling fence were potential hazards, especially as small children played in these areas.

Once maintenance of the foliage and repairs to the burrows had been completed, we were then able to treat all of the burrows to help ensure maximum effect our treatments. On re inspection, the problem with rats had been totally solved.

It was essential that the technician inspected thoroughly, and the recommendations were made. This is a typical example of one of many sites covered by us, our technicians take real pride in their work and are more than happy to assist where possible. As with our other contracts, we respond to a call out within 2 hours and will have a technician attend either the same or next day.
