Rat Control & Eradication

Finding rats in your home or business can be very distressing. Rats can spread disease in their search for food and shelter, posing health risks particularly in kitchens and food storage areas. Rats can cause other problems, so taking action to eliminate a rat infestation quickly is important as they can:

  • Damage property as constant gnawing by rats can damage insulation, pipes, doors, floorboards & they shred soft items for nesting.

  • Contaminate foodstuffs as pathogens in their urine & faeces can transmit diseases such as Weil's disease & Salmonellosis.

  • Cause damage that can endanger as they gnaw to squeeze through gaps & control their incisors, including chewing electrical wiring in premises & vehicles that can lead to fire risks.

Check for common signs of rats which will help identify a problem early, ensuring that quick and effective treatment can occur as soon as possible. Our BPCA certified specialists provide fast, effective and targeted rat control solutions.

Rat Species & Signs

Have you found gnaw marks or come across small dark brown droppings? If so then you could potentially have a rat infestation – but don’t worry we're here to help. If you think you have a possible rat infestation please call us now to speak to our experts about our fast effective rat control treatments.

Rats are most active during the night therefore it is often easier to spot the signs of a rat infestation than the actual rat. Below we have explained some signs that could indicate that you have a potential rat problem.

  • Gnawing - Rats are agile climbers and often found in lofts. You might notice gnaw marks on wires, cabling or items stored in the loft.

  • Rat droppings - Rat droppings are dark brown in a tapered, spindle shape.

  • Smear marks - Grease and dirt on their bodies leaves smudges on surfaces.

  • Footprints - Rats leave foot and tail marks in dusty, less-used areas of buildings.

  • Burrows - Brown rats are well known for digging extensive burrow systems for shelter, food storage and nesting.

  • Rat nests - Rats will shred available materials such as loft insulation, cardboard and other soft items to make nests.

There are two rat species that cause concern in the UK. The brown rat (common rat) & the black rat. Generally in the North West, you will only come across black rats around the dockland areas of Liverpool.

Both brown & black rats need access to water as part of their diet. Rats are neophobic (scared of new objects), bear this in mind when trying to overcome any rat infestation. Due to this, if you have an issue with rats inside your property then it is likely that they are able to come and go freely and any points of ingress must be identified as a priority.
