The Glis Glis Or Edible Dormouse

These are a pest in lofts around the South Bucks area.

The Romans were said to breed them for food but this population came from the Rothschild Estate in Tring where they escaped early last century. They are quite difficult to control but PEST UK has 4 technicians licensed by Wildlife & Natural England.

Reasons For Control

They get into lofts where they can cause damage by chewing wires and make a noise. They may also die in water tanks.


They are usually trapped by a live trap or a type of breakneck trap licensed for this purpose.


The price depends on the number of visits needed to deal with the infestation.
