Health and Safety

Rats carry a lot of diseases due to their habitats. For example, they are drawn to rotten food and rubbish bins. They also leave droppings everywhere, even where you are preparing food which can lead to health problems. 


For a residential property, there is a fire hazard risk, as rats chew through electrical cables. Rats can also cause damage to your home by leaving droppings everywhere and gnawing through your furnishings and other possessions. 

Work Place

Rats are a huge problem for commercial properties, as they could lead to the business having to close, and could also lead to legal implications. Rats contaminate food, spread diseases and can gnaw through electrical wires, cables and pipes causing floods and fires.

What Causes Rat Infestation?

There can be many causes for rat infestation. Rats are attracted to the smell of food, so if you leave food lying around, they will invade your property. Another major cause of rat infestations is poor sanitation, and not cleaning or looking after your property.

How do I Know if I Have a Rat Infestation?

If you start to notice that your furniture or other materials around your house have been bitten through, this can be a sign of a rat infestation, as they love to gnaw on plastic and wood. You may also see large holes, where the rats have gnawed away to get through to your property. If you spot any of these signs, it is essential to get in touch with a professional as soon as you can.

Will Rats Leave on their Own?

Rats won't usually leave on their own, as if they know they have a consistent source of food, they will want to keep that going for as long as possible. However, if you remove their constant source of food, then they won't want to stay there anymore.

If there is one rat, does that mean there are more?

It is most likely that you will have more rats if you happen to spot one, as they like to move around together. Rats will also start to breed, and therefore produce more rats that will also remain in your property.

How Can I Keep Rodents out of my House?

Here are a few tips for keeping rodents out of your house:
-Fill in any holes, cracks or gaps in the wall, as this will make it harder for rats to get in.
-Don't leave any food on display, as they are after a consistent food supply, and they are attracted to the smell.
-You can set traps, using bait, around your property.
