Previous pest work in Burgess Hill

We’ve worked in the area for many years and our proven solutions are very effective in eradicating rat infestations. We investigate, diagnose the issue and use tested methods to fix it.

Rats in the drains

We get a lot of work in the area and that’s because rats thrive in the sewers of Burgess Hill, when they get to bursting point; female rats seek sanctuary in the loft or cavity wall, Forcing their way into the house by tunnelling.

90% of all domestic rat jobs Bailey Pest Control carry out in Burgess Hill come from the sewer/drains. They make their way from the drain to the sewer in two ways via an interceptor cap missing or direct via a straight through system.

Rats in rural areas

Of course, rats don’t only infest urban areas and we have lots of experience in more rural settings. This includes rats in gardens, on farmland and for businesses such as fisheries in the local area.

Outdoors, rats can easily move along streams and decide to settle in or around various properties. It may be that you can physically see or hear them, or notice rat droppings. Once you suspect rats, we will investigate and fix the problem.

Solutions to rat infestations in Burgess Hill

The solution to prevent future outbreaks comes from fixing the problem at the source by amending the defected drain and stopping rats gaining access off the sewer system.

The interceptor caps can be replaced by Bailey Pest Control – this will prevent access as rats very rarely swim under the U bend.

The Metex Nordisk TX11 one way valve rat blocker

The one way valve rat blocker is the only solution to the straight through systems. These rat blockers prevent rats from entering buildings via the sewer system, while allowing the free flow of waste in the other direction.

“I reside close to a stream and noticed that I had a number of rats coming up from the stream and entering my garden. I contacted Bailey Pest Control for a solution. John came out within 4 hrs, laid rat boxes in a secure place and promised it would require just 2 further visits to eradicate. True to word, since John has been we have had no more rats visible. John was very professional and his costs were reasonable. I would highly recommend John.”
