Brighton and Hove residents are no strangers to rats. As the population has grown, so have the rats. Brighton’s urban areas have increased and so has the sewer system, 300 miles of sewers now exist in Brighton and Hove.
Rats thrive in the sewers of Brighton, when they get to bursting point; female rats seek sanctuary in the loft or cavity wall, Forcing their way into the house by tunnelling.
99% of all domestic rat jobs Sussex EPS carry out in Brighton come from the sewer/drains. They make their way from the drain to the sewer in 2 ways via an interceptor cap missing or direct via a straight through system.
Previous work done in Brighton – rats in the drains
The solution to prevent future outbreaks comes from fixing the problem at the source by amending the defected drain and stop rats gaining access off the sewer system.
The Interceptor caps can be replaced by Sussex EPS this will prevent access as rats very rarely swim under the U bend.
The one way valve rat blocker (Vermend) –is the only solution to the straight through systems. These rat blockers prevents rats from entering buildings via the sewer system, while allowing the free flow of waste in the other direction.

We have many happy customer testimonials from the Brighton area:
“We have had quite a number of problems with rats in our Brighton home during the past few years; they have been coming off the sewage system. Having previously used council services to deal with the rat problem without success we approached Sussex Environmental Pest Solutions and were extremely happy with the service they provided especially because they took the time to investigate the source of the problem. Excellent service.”
“We had a rat issue caused by a component failure in the drain. John arrived within the hour of my call, replaced the component and took further measures to reduce the chances of a repeat. He was thoroughly professional and efficient and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”
