Pest Control For Rats

Rats, similar to mice, are highly intelligent creatures that thrive in both residential and commercial settings. While they can be cute pets, they can also become dreadful pests, posing a threat to both you and your property. Take a moment to consider the potential harm that rats can bring once they invade your indoor space in search of shelter and hiding spots:

  • 1. Rats utilize various materials, such as wood, cloth, books, and insulation, to create their nests, resulting in damage to these items.
  • 2. They have a tendency to chew on electrical wires, which can lead to short circuits and increase the risk of fires.
  • 3. Rats contaminate improperly stored food and their bites can cause severe infections.
  • 4. They can serve as a gateway for other pests, including cockroaches and ants, and can also carry parasites like fleas.

Identify Rat Problems

As these nocturnal pests are more active at night, it's often easier to spot the evidence of their presence rather than the rats themselves. Brown rat droppings can appear dark brown and spindle-shaped - much like a grain of rice.

Black rats, being agile climbers often leave gnaw marks on wires or items stored in lofts. Rats also dig extensive burrow systems for shelter and create nests by shredding available materials like loft insulation and cardboard.

We recommend immediate action upon spotting any such signs to ensure that a potential infestation does not spread further.
