What are the signs of a Rat problem?


Scratching - Noises in walls, under floors or decking as they scurry around in search of food.

Ripped food packaging – they will tear open all types of packaging to find food which may leave teeth marks.

Damage – they have teeth that grow continuously and gnaw on wood, plastic and even mild metals to keep them trim. Rats can even cause fires by chewing through cables and wiring.

Droppings – they leave dark, tapered sausage shaped droppings about 1 - 2cm long.

Nests – built in warm, hidden places using shredded material such as newspaper, plastic and fabrics. Nests will often contain young.

Distinctive smell – rodents leave an ammonia-like smell from their urine that will be particularly strong in enclosed areas such as under cupboards, in loft spaces, garages, sheds or under decking. Rats are known for urinating very frequently anywhere they need to due to their tiny bladders.


Where are Rats most likely to be found?


Rats are most likely to be found where there is warmth and food. The most common places are in lofts, wall cavities, kitchens, gardens including under decking and garages or outbuildings.


When do Rats cause a problem?


Rats are an all year round problem, however they are most likely to enter properties during the colder winter months in search of warmth, somewhere to nest and breed and indoor food sources.


How do i get rid of Rats?


Quite simply, getting rid of rats is not easy. They are intelligent creatures and sense danger, this is what makes them somewhat a nocturnal animal when all is quiet in a sleeping house or a locked up shop or factory. Products sold as 'sonic repellents' or 'electronic deterants' are truly as gimicky as they sound. When it comes to 'off the shelf' products you really do get what you pay for. When you pay a professional to do the job, you pay for our methods, our high grade professional products, our expertise and most importantly a guarantee to get rid of rats. There are still things you can do to help prevent and discourage rats from entering your property and we are happy to advise you of these during treatment.
