Local Pest Control Rat Removal

Rats are very persistent, gnawing through anything to gain access and if they do get into your property they will spread diseases and cause damage. They also contaminate food. Rats cause other problems, so it’s vital to stop a rat infestation quickly as rats will damage property with gnawing. Rats will damage insulation, pipes, doors, floorboards and will also shred fabrics etc for nesting. They will contaminate foodstuffs as pathogens in rat’s urine and droppings transmit diseases such as Weil’s disease and Salmonella.

Signs of a rat infestation include holes, droppings, runs, damage, nests, and seeing rats.

Our treatment involves a full site survey to assess the extent of the infestation, placing baits or traps as necessary, revisiting to check baits regularly and removing the baits and traps at the end of the treatment.

The different rat species found in our service area have similar life cycles to one another. In general, rats produce about seven offspring per litter and can reach up to 14 at times.

From birth to adult, rats take about three weeks to mature and begin fending for themselves. The rodents reach sexual maturity in about five weeks and begin mating soon after to produce the next generation to start the rat life cycle over again.

As rats will prefer food already in their environment, during the treatment rats need to find the poison or non toxic bait placed in traps more attractive than anything else in the infested area. To make any treatment effective you should ensure there are no other food sources available to distract them.
