  • Rats

  • Rats are some of the most troublesome and damaging rodents and are an ever present nuisance and can be found everywhere that we live and work. They prefer to remain hidden but as the rat population gets bigger they are forced into the open, so if you see one it is a good sign of infestation.
    They have poor eyesight but make up for it with keen senses of hearing, smell and touch. Rats gnaw constantly to wear down their front teeth which grow constantly, causing much damage to homes, foundations and other buildings.
    Rats are also know to carry diseases and can cause food poisoning so should be controlled where necessary.

    Signs of a Rat infestation:

    • Look out for live or dead rats.
    • Look for traces of rat runs in grass or low vegetation.
    • Dirt or grease marks along walls and flooring.
    • Look for capsule shaped rat droppings, black and about 12mm long.
