The need for professional domestic pest control
One of the most dangerous and damaging pest problems you can experience is an infestation of rats. These creatures spread diseases, contaminate food, harm pets and cause costly damage to property, making them one of the most common challenges facing pest control companies.
The need for professional domestic pest control has risen due to a reduction in the number of waste collections in some areas, and the increasing popularity of home composting which can attract vermin. The popularity of garden decking has also led to sub decking infestations, as these popular garden structures create a safe environment for rats, mice and other pests to live under.
With certain local authorities having stopped providing pest control services, this particular area has left thousands of potential jobs up for grabs by private pest control companies, as they only stopped offering the services this year. Councils including Broxtowe Borough Council used to provide a free service or a subsidised service for domestic customers, yet still many people living in the area that would have contacted the council are still unaware that the service has stopped, until they ring for help.
