Rodent control in Dunedin

Rodent control (rats and mice)

Rodents are a nuisance around the home. They damage foodstuffs, spread disease and can damage property while making a nest. They can also cause sleepless nights due to their fossicking in roof spaces and wall cavities.

We can rid your premises of rodents using either toxic or non-toxic means. In environments where children or pets are present, we use bait stations to house any toxins. For ongoing control, we offer Rodent Control Programmes. These programmes are used by dozens of restaurants, cafes, bars, factories, industrial sites and residential homes.

  • Rodent Control Programmes involve:
  • Initial consultation and assessment
  • Installation of all control methods
  • An onsite programme management folder
  • Monthly (or more frequently if required) service checks and a written report.
  • All labour, travel, toxin, bait station use and reports are included in a low monthly fixed price with NO hidden costs.

Bee and wasp control in Dunedin

Bees and wasps

Bees and wasps in the wrong location can endanger your family and pets. As well as building nests, which can be a fire issue, bees and especially wasps can cause harm from venomous stings which many people are allergic to. Using a fumigant powder, we can kill off the nest within 12 hours from application. Options for removal of the nest are also available.
