Agricultural Pest Control

Family run, Yeovil based, Helliar Pest Control hold an agricultural contract portfolio of over 160 clients across Somerset, Dorset & Wiltshire. With over 40 years experience between our technicians, our service is second to none.

Farming is a very demanding job and the control of rodents to many farmers can be somewhat of a burden. Rodents can cause problems on any site year round and quickly infest areas causing potential hazards to staff members, livestock, crops, machinery farm buildings and properties to name a few.

The height of the rodent breeding season is during the summer months when it is warm although rats and have mice have been known to breed all year round. The gestation period of rats and mice is anywhere between 18-22 days usually bearing a litter of 8-12 pups. A single female rodent is capable of producing 8 litters a year at 25 day intervals, that is roughly 56 offspring per year! Juvenile rats will then reach sexual maturity at roughly 4-5 weeks and the cycle starts again!

We comply with Farm Assurance Schemes!

Health and safety log book

Many agricultural premises are audited by strict farm assurance schemes. These governing bodies state that a professional pest control service must be in place to minimise and control any potential rodent activity on site. Helliar Pest Control work within strict guidelines to ensure all our agricultural premises pass their annual audits. Environmental Risk Assessments are carried out on all sites prior to any works being carried out. A contract site folder is supplied as part of the contract and contains all relevant documentation to support the services we are offering and products we are using on site.
