Recently had a new ktichen rennovation work done on my home so this caused some infestation of mice in my home which I was not happy about. Called Biopest as I liked the information that was added on their webpage. The technician came & did a good inspection around my home & advised me on the best way to make my home proofed against future infestations. I was very happy with his advice & he also added further measures on points of my home where the problem was occurring. I was very happy with the service they provided & also thanks to Eva for her kind & reassuring manner when I called to make a booking. Unfortunately my neighbour also had some problems & I recommended Biopest to her & she was very happy with the advice she was given when she had her home inspected.

This company helped me to rid my flat of a horrible insect infestation. Eva was so knowledgeable and helpful on the phone too. If it happens again, I certainly wouldn't use anyone else.

Very refreshing to speak to a company that is honest and not just there to make a quick buck like some other companies. Asked for pest proofing and Eva was great and very honest in that they could do it but it's unlikely to help and why. And referring me to someone for further advice.

From the first Email Ewa was incredible professional and reassuring. Great customer service all around and very professional. I had my whole flat sprayed twice both time very professional and helpful. Staff were happy to follow up and answer any questions I had. And I know I had lots since I experienced bugs for the first time ever and they pushed me almost to insanity considering with lock down i was stuck home 24/7. I can't recommend them enough although I hope I will never need to call for their services again. Thank you again!!!

Pest control at its finest! So I've had a few different issues over the years, ranging from mice to rats (eeek!) to squirrels and over lockdown these traumatic "attacks" have been regular and in some cases persistent. I've contacted several other pest services but once I spoke to and had a visit from the London team, I've not bothered with any other service providers. From the office team's assessment through to the site technician's prompt and on-time visits, I have not been disappointed. Whilst most of the other control services focused on resolution, Bioactive Pest Control looked at both resolution and prevention. The technician took his time to understand the problem and the underlying root cause, some of which were glaringly obvious to the other providers but had never been raised. Also, I have found an attention to detail and conscientiousness, which is above and beyond any other pest service to date. I would heartily recommend for a thorough, professional approach to ridding you of any unwanted pests.

Rat Prevention & Control Is Important

Our specialists will always carry out a thorough survey on your property before recommending a pest control solution

Our professional team will survey your property for any sign of rats. Following the survey you will be provided with a written report and we will propose the best course of action to remove and control rats in the future, to the highest standards.

Our team will set and bait traps, as well as decontaminate your property, while you wait.

We take special care not to damage your walls, floors or ceilings. It doesn’t matter how sever the infestation is, we will take care of it for you.

Professional Proofing & Prevention

Rats have an uncanny habit of finding their way into properties through all manner of entry points including:

  • Gaps around your pipes
  • Airbricks
  • Gaps underneath eaves
  • Gaps around your window and door frames.

Rat-proofing is essential to preventing future problems, as it prevents rats from re-entering your property and returning to their preferred nesting area.

We will identify the root of the problem and find all the openings that rats use to enter your property. These are then sealed using steel, mesh and other strong materials, making your property 100% rat-proof.

We have full liability insurance which provides peace of mind for our staff, customers and the general public. We pride ourselves in providing the highest level of customer service possible and we aim to leave every client feeling happy with the service provided.

Our Staff are highly experienced, well trained and most of all friendly

Follow-Up Visits

Once the initial service is complete a detailed inspection report will be provided to you. Our pest controller will then arrange a convenient time to carry out a follow-up visit.

We generally need to carry out 3 follow-up visits after the initial service has been completed. These follow-ups are usually once a week or every second day.

The first and second follow-up will let us know how bad the infestation was and where you have had evidence of rats.

During the follow up visit the pest controller will re-bait as necessary and arrange the second follow-up with you. On the last follow up, we would carry out a final inspection of your property to make sure it’s all clear, before advising you how to prevent rat problems in the future.

Rat Pest Control FAQ

Should i be worried if i see a rat in my garden?

The rat may simply be passing through to another property, but seeing one can cause concern that other rats are near by. If you do see a rat in your garden it may be worth arranging a pest control specialist to do a survey and advise about rat proofing to prevent them accessing and nesting your property.

How long does it take to get rid of rats?

Generally it takes around 3 weeks to fully eradicate rats if it is a small number of them that have managed to enter your property. Larger infestations can take a lot longer. Its important to call professional services as soon as you see a rat to prevent the problem getting out of hand.

What’s the best way to get rid of rats quickly?

The fastest and most efficient way to deal with a rat problem is to speak to a pest controller. You could also use store bought solutions such as bait traps or live traps. However without a specialist survey you will be unsure of the extent of the problem, how successful you have been and how best to prevent rats from returning.

What time of year is worst for rats?

Rat populations are typically highest around late summer to early autumn. This is because food becomes more scarce and temperatures get colder, encouraging them to seek out indoor spaces to nest in
