Pest Proofing and Structural Repairs

Owl Pest Control

Need Pest Proofing and Structural repairs after pest damage?

We can often link persistent rat activity in gardens or in the grounds of a residential complex to issues with the sewer system, i.e. Norway Rats digging from inside a shore or broken sewer pipe. Rodents can also access buildings through defects in the outer wall as illustrated below.

When rats and mice enter wall cavities and insulation voids, it is only a matter of time before these rodents gain access into the house (or apartment) through apertures such as air vents. Mice and rats are subsequently responsible for major damage to the building by chewing through PVC water pipes or electrical wires.

Our highly trained engineers can help identify and resolve rat and mice-related issues along with Pest Proofing certain areas. This includes using CCTV sewer surveys, excavating and repairing broken sewer pipes and deteriorated manholes.

Virgin Media / Eir / Telecom / Cable Box Door Replacement

Mice and rats can easily enter the structure through cable boxes if the door is open or missing. This happens regularly after technicians work on the cables during connection or disconnection of the television or telephone service.

We recommend you check the cable box doors around your building walls regularly or immediately after the visit of a technician.

If the cable door box is missing or there is damage to the cable box, we can replace it for you. We also supply directly these replacement cable doors and boxes to the public.

Possible Rodent entry Point-Owl Pest Control Ireland

A few years ago in a new development (Dublin) that was not totally completed, a rat used this access to get into a ground floor showroom apartment at the weekend and gnawed a main water pipe inside the walls above the entrance. The following Monday all the rooms in the apartment were found completely flooded and all the plaster-boards had to be replaced!
