The Common Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)
We offer rat control London services for residential pest solutions and commercial pest solutions. Rats can multiple and get out of control fast. Let us get rid of your rats. Rats carry diseases and fleas. Not to mention they are just gross little creatures. Rats feed on human food, so we should first get your food secure. And, rats are very versatile. They can climb various surfaces and squeeze through small holes. Rats are rodents. This means they chew alot. They can cause electrical fires. Just like mice, they multiply really fast. And, once you've seen one, you most likely have more.

The common rat needs a daily supply of water to survive (unless its primary food source is very moist). They are omnivorous but will prefer to eat cereals over other types of food. And, they are very mobile creatures and can climb on a wide variety of surfaces and are considered quite acrobatic. They tend to eat about 1/10 of their body-weight every day.
After treating the property, a survey should be undertaken to assess the infestation's proportions and risks. Also, adjacent properties should be inspected due to the behaviors of rats (rats tend to travel outside their harbourage to feed and drink before returning).
During the survey, your pest-control technician will carry out a "risk-assessment". This is basically our way of checking for any hazards on the property / area. We will provide you, where possible, with advice for preventing rats e.g. highlighting any factors that can improve the situation. These things could be things like: proofing, cleaning, food storage etc.
Our technicians are always suitably equipped to handle virtually any problem that may be encountered. Our knowledgeable pest-controllers are experienced in the living patterns/ niches of rats. And are very able to detect signs of them where present.

After establishing the type and species of pest present, a baiting programme should be implemented. Our technicians aim to exterminate the rats without endangering people or non-target animals within the area. We are aware of the continuous changes that occur within a nest and we consider this when assessing your property. Baits, therefore, have to be inaccessible to other animals. We study the rats so we know how they think. This is important.
In instances where baits need to be in domestic areas, tamper-resistant bait-boxes must be used to protect the health of non-target animals and people. Rats are sneaky but if you know them it is easier.
Usually, follow-up surveying will occur seven working days after the initial baiting programme has been implemented, some situations, however, may require more frequent (daily)
