Our trained and certified technicians continually review pest control methods and techniques to provide the most comprehensive solutions. 

Drawing on our 50-plus years of expertise and experience as producer of rodenticides we carry out professional, discreet and timely rodent control services in both residential and commercial areas.

We use the most up-to-date equipment, materials and pesticides to ensure the best results with the highest level of safety, for both people and pets.

Rodents need to gnaw constantly because their teeth grow steadily throughout their lives. They often gnaw on pipes and electrical wires, which can cause fires and floods and lead to costly repair bills.

They are vectors of diseases that are dangerous to humans, such as leptospirosis and numerous other diseases that can be fatal.

They also reproduce at an alarming rate: if two mice were left in a building with only one food source for twelve months, their population would increase to 2000. After 19-21 days of gestation the female gives birth to a litter of approximately 6-12 pups.

Consequently, it is necessary to conduct monitoring operations according to a planned schedule throughout the year to maintain the results of eradication.

How do we intervene?

  1. Inspection: a thorough inspection is necessary both inside and outside the area to be treated to determine the nature and extent of the infestation.

  2. Action: we proceed with the positioning of our own poisoned baits, traps and monitoring devices in the strategic points that have been identified by the exterminator.

  3. Monitoring: surveillance is crucial to evaluate the effectiveness of treatment. A comprehensive approach, combining chemical and mechanical methods, ensures the effective control of the rodent population.

House mouse

This species is considered extremely “infesting” due to its high reproductive rate. Generally, it loves to settle in places that are inhabited by humans (houses, garages, cellars, attics…). It eats 15 to 20 times a day, consuming very small amounts of food each time. Generally, it doesn’t stray far from its hiding place, only coming out at night. Seeing a house mouse out in the open during the day indicates an overabundance of the murine population which must risk its survival to go out to search for food. It is a very lively little mouse, which moves gracefully and can swim. It is curious but cautious. It feeds on all kinds of substances but prefers fatty foods, grains and cheese, etc. In addition to water, it drinks sugary and oily liquids and spirits.


Vole

This small species is vegetarian. It mainly feeds on the fleshy parts of plants, especially tubers and bulbs, and often gnaws on the bark at the base of trees. They cause a lot of damage to agricultural crops, vegetable gardens and gardens.

Black Rat

It is mainly active at night. It generally colonises attics, silos and tree tops, especially those of maritime pines and palms. It is an omnivore, which loves to gnaw on plastic materials and plastic cables. Via contamination, it can seriously damage food stuffs and environments.

Sewer Rat

It is considered the most dangerous species due its ability to spread potential epidemics. It lives in large colonies. It is a good swimmer. It digs underground tunnels where it builds its nest, preferring areas that are neglected or close to watercourses. It is an omnivore that fancies animal proteins. Vigorous and aggressive, it attacks and kills small domestic animals. It is highly adaptable and is as smart as it is prudent.

Nutria

The nutria is a rodent mammal. It is very similar to the South American beaver which was commercially exploited for its fur. Due to the failure of these farms, many specimens were intentionally released to avoid costs associated with their slaughter and disposal. As a result of these releases, in addition to escapes, a large population of nutria has grown. It has also adapted well to humid European environments, especially polluted ones. Numbers have grown significantly in recent years in Italy; spreading into the Po Valley, along the Adriatic coast up to Abruzzo and on the Tyrrhenian side of Lazio. 

The nutria is one of the 100 most harmful species in the world. It’s necessary to adopt drastic measures to contain it in order to protect the environment. The overpopulation of this mammal can cause considerable economic damage to the agricultural crops on which it feeds. It also eats algae and aquatic plants and damages river banks where it tends to build its den.
