What we do.


The Treatment - Indoors

We will carry out a thorough investigation of your property to determine the extent of the problem and to identify areas where the rats could be getting in. We will then place rodenticide bait in the areas where we have found signs of rat activity (common areas include the roof space or under kitchen units).

We will then return at a later date to check that that the bait has been taken and to remove any untouched bait. If all the bait has been taken we may need to carry out additional visits to ensure the rats have been completely eradicated - this will be discussed with you during our survey. As it is a legal requirement to remove bait after a treatment, a baiting programme will always consist of a minimum of two visits.

The Treatment - Outdoors

If the Rat problem is outdoors we will place locked, tamper proof bait stations around the area. Bait will also be placed in other common harbourages such as underneath sheds. As with the indoor treatment, a minimum of two visits will be required.

To ensure the success of an outdoor treatment, it is very important that no other food sources are available to the rats. Therefore we ask that any bird feeders are removed, along with any spillages of pets food or fruit fallen from trees.

After Treatment

After treatment we will remove all bait and conduct a search for any rat carcasses. We will then provide you with a written treatment report and give help and advice on keeping your premises rat-free in the future. If any rat proofing measures are required (eg blocking holes) we will be able to give you a no obligation quotation for this.

About Rats.


Common Forms:
Brown Rat (rattus norvegicus)
Black Rat (rattus rattus)

Importance:
Rats pose the same problem and dangers as mice, although the general public seem to have a much greater revulsion to rats. The diseases that they transmit include Salmonella and Weils disease and they carry parasites such as Ticks, Fleas, Mites, Ringworm and Tapeworm. Rats also carry a number of diseases that can be transmitted to animals, including foot and mouth in catle and sheep.

Because of their burrowing, rats can undermine foundations of buildings, they can also cause serious damage to drains and sewers. Rats are able to gnaw their way through lead pipes and even metal sheathed cables. Then often attack electrical wiring, causing power failure and sometimes fires. Dead rodents will cause a serious infestation of flies.

Control:
Control is achieved using anti-coagulent rodenticide baits placed throughout the infested premises. Rats are often found outside and would be controlled in the same manner.
