How will you know you have a rat problem?
Why should you have this controlled?
What can you do to help before treatment of rats?
You can make a note of where you have seen any rats, you can ask your neighbours if they have seen any activity and you can leave any droppings or damage for me to look at when we survey your property.
What will we do?
We will check the area that you have seen the rats and then see which course of action we will consider in consultation with yourselves. The methods that we will discus will be traps, poisoning and proofing.
What happens after treatment?
Rats are attracted by the smell of rubbish, other animals and their food so you should take care when feeding your pets, or, if you feed wild birds and have bird table. You should also be very careful when you discard rubbish in your bins ensuring that they are closed securely and that rats cannot get into them. Rats need three things to survive: water, food, cover. Your garden will probably provide all of these to any rat in the area. It is therefore important that you keep these to a minimum. Additionally composting provides a warm place for rats to live and a supply of food in the winter.
