Rat Pest Control
If you see a rat in your home or business property, it’s unlikely to be alone. Rats can cause damage, spread disease and breed quickly.
Rats usually come out at night, so it’s unlikely you’ll see them during the day. Even so, there are a number of ways to know if you have rats in your home or business.
Rats gnaw through wire, wood plastic and even mild steel. To avoid rodents causing extensive damage to your home, call our rat removal service at on 0330 058 5472.
How do I know if I have a rat problem?
- Rat droppings – Rat droppings are dark brown and the size of a grain of rice. They are commonly found in concentrated places, making them easy to spot.
- Bite marks – Rats’ teeth don’t stop growing and they gnaw on objects to file them down. Look out for bite marks on anything from wood to concrete.
- Movement – Rats are nocturnal and if they are in parts of your house, such as the walls or under the floorboards, you may hear them moving around.
- Footprints – If you suspect you have rats, you can test by sprinkling some flour and checking the next day for footprints in the flour.
