Toxic Free Pest Control Solutions 

The Service

  We are frequently approached at Hampshire Pest Clear to implement a non toxic pest control program. We understand that some areas of pest infestation are difficult to control using poison products.

Some problems require a much greener approach to pest control due to pets, farm live stock, and organic practices. Secondary poisoning can also pose a risk in sensitive areas and a non toxic pest control approach would be the best and safest way possible to approach a particular pest problem.

Although with a non toxic approach comes a compromise in costs and time getting the problem under satisfactory control.


The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) advises that traps should be checked once daily for humane reasons this can be costly and more time consuming that a standard poison baiting program The main alternative is either live trapping or the use of approved humane spring traps; both are a useful alternative to toxic baiting.

The use of toxic rodenticides will always get a pest problem under control at a faster rate, but we are getting more requests for a non toxic alternative.


If you are still interested in a greener non toxic approach to vermin control then please contact us at the following number to talk through ways to gain control of your pest problem.

It is claimed that high frequency sound can be used to distract rodent populations and drive them away from problem areas. A number of such devices are commercially available.
Although the principle may appear attractive and offer benefits its practical application has generally produced disappointing results.

(Don't waste your money!)

Mammal Cage Traps come in various sizes and are used to catch feral cats, foxes, rats, mice, mink or grey squirrels.  They are basically of the same design, with bait inside the trap to tempt the animal in, and a non-return door to contain the animal.  The animals are caught unharmed.  Pest species must be humanely despatched and non-target species released unharmed.  Checking intervals are not specified but failing to check a trap regularly could be an offence under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 or the Abandonment of Animals Act 1960.

Spring Traps

All spring traps must be approved under the Spring traps approval order, http://www.defra.gov.uk/WILDLIFE-COUNTRYSIDE/vertebrates/approved-

traps.htm , which specifies the target species and how each trap must be used, for example set in natural or artificial tunnels or in some cases a rabbit burrow.  The tunnel entrance should be restricted to avoid the capture of non-target species. 

  • It is illegal to set spring traps in the open or on top of a post.  
  • It is illegal to use a gin trap or to possess it for an unlawful purpose.
