Leave rodent removal to the specialists

Having rats or mice in your house is more than just an annoyance; they may pose a major health danger, especially in kitchens or places where children play. Rats, mice, or even a single mouse may wreak havoc on your house and furnishings by nibbling through wood and plastic. Rats and mice may even start fires by gnawing on electrical lines.

While certain DIY remedies available at local stores may be a more cost-effective means of treating tiny infestations such as rats or mice, our professional pest management is required for more established mouse colonies or when there is a reoccurring infestation. The service professionals at Pegasus Pest Solutions Ltd give specially targeted treatment to deal with any rodent problem you may have, and we will always do our best to offer guidance on how to keep your house free of mice in the future.

Our service is a three-phase plan consisting of a visit to survey the state of your property and identify the rodents. During our second visit, we'll begin baiting and trapping the rats or mice. Finally, we will cleanse all the areas that were inhabited by the pests. If at this stage we haven't removed all the pests, a Pegasus rat exterminator will return free of charge to finish the job. We are known for our flawless work, so we will not be satisfied with our rodent control service unless you are. Don’t hesitate to read our reviews to get the opinions of others we’ve helped with pest control. After you’ve had a look, feel free to call us at 023 9309 2101 or 07501 70 2101 to book your service.

Signs that you have rats in your home

Some homeowners may be completely ignorant of a rat infestation in their home since the rodents may be occupied locations around your property that you don't frequent. Here at Pegasus Pest Solutions Ltd, we have identified certain symptoms that will identify the presence of rats in your home:


Sounds in the walls or ceilings are caused by mice scurrying about.


Mice leave minute, black droppings, especially along walls or in locations where there is a lot of rodent activity, such as in cabinets or under sinks.

Distinctive odour

Mice leave a trail that smells like ammonia, commonly within or beneath your kitchen cabinets.


Mice have constantly growing teeth and will nibble on wood, plastic, wires, and other hard things.


Mice construct nests out of shredded newspaper and materials. These are usually found in obscure locations, such as under refrigerators. Young mice are frequently found in nests.

How to prevent future rodent infestations

After our rodent control service is complete, our rat exterminators will suggest ways you can prevent rodents from returning. Although our service is conclusive, you may face another pest issue many years down the line. Or you may move house and find yourself faced with the problem all over again. Not to worry! Equipped with our tips, you will be able to prevent further infestation. Although we will provide specific advice at the time, here are just a handful of the suggestions our pest control team could make.

  • Install bristle strips at the bottom of your doors to prevent easy entry for mice. This is especially useful for older buildings. 
  • Cover vents with galvanised wire mesh Ensure your grass is always cut short. Rodents love to build their pests in long, unkept grass. When you keep your garden orderly, you'll eliminate the chances of mice relocating from the garden to your house. It is also beneficial to leave space between your garden and the walls of your house. 
  • Use coarse-grade stainless steel wire wool and caulking to seal any holes surrounding your pipework. Trim branches that hang over your roof. Agile mice can climb along branches and drop onto your roof before finding a point of entry. 
  • Be aware that rodents are opportunistic animals. Conventional wisdom says they only target unclean buildings, but this is incorrect. If you spot any signs of infestation, call a pest control specialist right away to have them removed.
