Frequently Asked Question

Are your poisons safe?

All the poisons we use are approved by the Health and Safety Executive. Wherever possible we try to use powder, sprays or pellets. Insects have a different body system than humans and their poisons should generally pose little risk to us. Rats and mice are mammals and therefore what kills them might affect pets, and us, if eaten in large enough quantities. An advice leaflet regarding the rodenticide used is left with householders when any treatment is undertaken. We will check if you have pets and will not leave any poison where your pets can't get at it. We also remove rat/mice poison when problems have been resolved.
