Rats must drink water daily unless the food source is extremely moist. They are considered omnivorous but if available, cereals seem preferred. They eat on average one tenth of their body weight each day. Rats will explore locations quite freely. However, it they do have a fear of new objects and new environments. This characteristic is known as neophobia and this should be taken into account when baits are checked after an initial treatment.
Rats will normally be found under kitchen units, in basements, under garden sheds, under decking, behind bath panels and in roof voids. We once had to deal with a Rat that was entering a property via a chimney stack.
We offer a free of charge survey that is carried out by our trained surveyors. They will offer our proposal and advice as to how to treat and how you can try to reduce the risk of reinfestation in the future.Our technician will initially talk through the problems you are experiencing and explain what our treatment entails. He will then carry out a thorough inspection of your premises prior to any treatment and assess the level and extent of the infestation. Once this has been established, he will carry out treatment to the appropriate areas. Once our treatment is complete we will detail our work in an inspection report and leave this with you, our technician will then arrange a convenient time to carry out a follow up visit.
