Our buildings are ideal for rats because they provide food, water, warmth and shelter. For these reasons you may notice rats inside buildings more in the cooler months.
What we do to treat rats..
Set up a guaranteed program to control rats in a building and it’s surrounding environment and advise how you can help reduce future problems.
Inspect We will carry out a survey and report our findings.
- Bait: We will set up rodent bait stations at various strategic locations in and around the buildings. These rodent bait stations securely hold the bait within the station which means that secondary poisoning of non target animals are greatly reduced to almost zero.
- Traps: We can set up specially designed traps where baits cannot be used.
- Tracking: Powders Sometimes we may need to use rrat tracking powders.
Signs of Rodent Activity Include
- Droppings: New rat droppings are shiny and pliable and within 2-3 days become dull and hard. Rat droppings are up to 12mm long and have blunted ends.
- Rubmarks: These are greasy smear marks and they are caused when rodents rub their fur against vertical surfaces such as walls.
- Burrows: Rat burrows are normally found next to waterways and buildings.
- Sounds: Rats are normally heard at night clawing and gnawing.
- Nest: A rats nest is usually made of rags and paper and cardboard.
- Gnawing: Rats gnaw to keep their incisors down and use wood, metal, conduit and cables in order to do this. When rats gnaw cables for instance this can expose bare wires and cause short circuits or fires.
