About Rats

Rat control becomes more popular for us, in the winter period as rodents start looking for shelter and warmth, usually in the roof space of your property.

Rats are determined to get that food

Rats are some of the most troublesome rodents and can cause considerable damage to homes and businesses. They eat and contaminate food, damage structures, and property, transmit parasites and diseases to your home and yard. Rats can make nearly anywhere a home. They infest homes, farming, and food, and they adapt easily to their environment.

Despite poor eyesight, they make up for this with their keen senses of hearing, smell, taste, and touch. rats explore and learn about their environment, rats are more active at night. Rats are constantly exploring and learning, memorizing paths, obstacles, food and water, shelter, and their environment features.

It can be difficult to control rats because they avoid new objects such as traps and baits. Consider checking your entire property for other signs of rats which may include droppings, nests, gnaw marks, or a dead rat.

Rats Multiply Overnight

Rats are adaptable, persistent, and breed rapidly to produce a large rat infestation, by proofing your home or business will make it less attractive for rats.
Keep your home in good repair; rats can squeeze through gaps of 15mm to gain access, cut back weeds and overgrown areas, keep lawns short and tidy, remove any build-up of waste to eliminate nesting sites for rats.

Rats are good climbers; make sure you trim back any vegetation in contact with the roof, repair any broken or loose tiles, ensure drain covers are fixed correctly and in place, rats have known to climb up downpipes to gain entry, use a fine wire mesh fixed to the base of the pipe, seal any gaps around pipework entering into the building with mortar or caulking, place fine wire mesh over ventilation bricks.

Food sources that are attracted to rodent’s pet food, fruits, bread crumbs, food waste, grease (e.g. such as a BBQ), and rubbish. If you provide food for them, they will stay.

Observe runs and smear marks – rats establish certain routes when travelling to and from their nesting site, these black greasy smears left by their fur rubbing against surfaces.

Droppings – rat droppings are between 10 and 20 mm long and often found concentrated in runs.
