Rats are one of the most hated pests around. They cause major health risks by carrying diseases such as Salmonella, E.coli and Weil’s disease. On top of this they cause endless damage by their constant gnawing.

It can be very serious if rats manage to enter your home but it is also a problem if they gain access to your garden which can be used by your children and pets.

Signs of Rats

  • Scratching noises from cavity walls, lofts and under floor boards
  • Droppings that are around 1.5cm in length and the shape of a sausage
  • Bad odour that is very distinctive in the nest area
  • Damage to property and goods
  • Burrows in the ground

To get rid of rats is not easy. They are ingenious, suspicious and generally move at night. However, rats need two things: food and water.

If you can cut off their supply to these the rats will disappear. Rats, unlike mice, are dependant on a regular water supply. If this is not possible you are going to have to kill them.

If that doesn’t sound particularly pleasant, messy or complicated, the answer is to call Origin Pest Control who will offer you a fast and efficient rat removal service at a competitive price.
