PREVENTION/TREATMENT

Not dissimilar to the signs of an infestation of mice, there are a handful of indications that you might have a rat problem. Droppings, their greasy rub marks, nests and little footprints are all signs that you might not be alone in your home or business. Gnaw marks on cabling, wires and general household items, and rat holes around the premises (long burrow systems where they shelter, feed, store and nest), are tell-tale signs of a rat problem.

Ensuring food is stored away in containers with tight fitting lids, that food debris is regularly cleaned up, uncluttering the property and surrounding land, and most importantly, securing your home or commercial property to prevent pest entry, are essential preventative measures, to protect against a rat infestation.
