We specialise in identifying signs of rat activity, eliminating current infestations, and implementing preventative measures to keep these pesky rodents at bay.
Signs of Infestation
The first step to solving any problem is identifying it. Rats are sneaky creatures that can invade your home or business without you even realizing it until the infestation becomes severe. Here are some signs that may indicate you have a rat infestation:
Rat droppings are typically dark brown or black in colour and about 1/2 inch long, with a spindle shape. They may be scattered around your property near food sources or hiding spots.
Rats use strong teeth to gnaw on various materials. Seeing gnaw marks on furniture, wires, walls, or food packaging could be a sign of rats.
Rats are most active at night. If you notice scratching sounds in the walls or under the floor, it could indicate a rat problem.
Rats build nests using shredded paper, fabric, or plant matter. If you find small heaps of these materials in hidden areas, it could be a nesting site.
Rats leave urine and droppings wherever they go, and over time, these can produce a noticeable odour.
Our Rat Pest Control Process
The first step in our rat pest control process is a comprehensive inspection and assessment of your property. Our trained professionals will thoroughly examine your home or business, identifying signs of rat activity, potential entry points, and areas of damage. This inspection allows us to understand the severity and nature of the infestation, which is crucial in developing an effective treatment plan.
Based on the findings from our inspection, we develop a custom treatment plan tailored to your specific situation. This plan outlines the methods to eliminate the rats, including traps, baits, and exclusion techniques. We prioritise methods that are safe for humans and pets and minimise environmental impact. Additionally, we provide a clear timeline and cost estimate, ensuring you know exactly what to expect.
Once the treatment plan is approved, our experienced technicians get to work. They implement the outlined strategies with precision and care, aiming to eliminate the rat population as quickly and efficiently as possible. Throughout this process, we adhere to all safety guidelines to ensure the well-being of everyone on the property.
After the treatment, we conduct a follow-up inspection to confirm the effectiveness of our methods and ensure all rats have been removed. We also advise on how to prevent future infestations, giving tips on sealing potential entry points, proper waste management, and other practices for keeping rats away.
Your satisfaction is our top priority, and we strive to provide a service that leaves you feeling safe and comfortable in your rat-free property. At every stage of this process, our team maintains open communication, providing updates and addressing any concerns you may have.
How To Deter Rats and Future Infestations
Seal Entry Points:
Rats can squeeze through tiny gaps and cracks as small as half an inch. Regularly inspect your property for potential entry points, such as gaps around doors, windows, pipes, and vents. Use materials like wire mesh, metal flashing, or caulk to seal these areas.
Rats are attracted to areas with easy access to food. Keep your kitchen clean, store food in airtight containers, and clean up any spills immediately. Regularly take out the trash and ensure garbage bins are tightly sealed.
Eliminate Water Sources:
Like all animals, rats need water to survive. Fix leaky pipes and faucets, and make sure there is no standing water in or around your property.
Inspect your property for signs of rats, such as droppings, gnaw marks, or nests. Catching an infestation early makes it easier to control.
