Rat control and proofing in London

Most of us are terrified of rats. In fact just the mere mention of them is enough to send some people running for the door. At Project Multi Pest, our aim is to turn the tables on these irritating rodents and have them scampering in the opposite direction instead.

Still carrying the bad reputation they received from delivering the plague, wild rats are the last lodgers you want to let inside your home. For whilst the plague days may be over, rats can still carry shudder worthy parasites and nasty diseases such as ringworm and Weil’s disease.

If you are plagued, by a rat infestation, don’t let it get you down, at PMP we can help you spot, shift and prevent your rodent problem.

One rat, two rats, three rats... more

Chances are, that if you have seen one rat foraging for food then there are countless more scurrying around your property – with thee most common being the Norwegian or brown rat.

There are 15 million brown rats in the UK alone and not only are they increasing in number but ballooning in size, able to grow up to 25cm excluding their tail.

And the bad news does not stop there! Rats can climb, swim, and love to gnaw on anything in sight to keep their long teeth in check. Plus, they can start producing babies at as little as 6 weeks and are capable of producing five litters a year – so it is easy to see how numbers can soon spiral out of control!

If you own a property or business that is overrun with rats – don’t delay, contact PMP today and we’ll ensure that you are rat-free in no time at all.

Residential rat control services

Not everyone hates rats – in fact, they are popular pets in the UK, thanks to their inquisitive and intelligent nature. Wild rats, however, are a completely different story when roaming free around your home. Destructive and devious they are incredibly difficult to get rid of.

Friend or foe – wild rats must go. Contact PMP for advice on how we can stop these pest rodent from running riot around your house.

Commercial rat control

Whilst rats in the home can cause headaches, rats in the workplace can cause major financial damage. Factories, offices, and food outlets have a duty of care to their staff which means that rats need to be kept at bay.

On top of having to replace damaged stock, having rats in the workplace can also put your business reputation on the line. A health hazard (especially if you work within the food industry), Environmental Health have the power to shut your establishment down if your rat problem isn’t dealt with in a swift and effective manner.

So, if there’s a rat in your kitchen you know just what to do… call PMP today!

Signs of a rat infestation

Rats are generally nocturnal – sleeping during the day and foraging for food at night – so the chances of spotting one scampering brazenly around your property is slim (although not unheard of!). The sound of rats scratching, however, is synonymous with fingernails being scraped down a blackboard and is enough to put anyone on edge.

If you think you have rats on your property, here are some signs to look out for:

Droppings

Rat droppings are a sure sign of rodent presence and an average rat can produce up to 50 a night. Generally, these are dark brown in colouring and around the size of a single grain of rice. These are often more readily spotted around food sources, in cupboards, by pet dishes and scattered around bins.

Gnaw marks

Another tell-tale sign that you have rats, will be ripped up food wrappers whilst shredded paper can also indicate a nearby nest. As rats need to keep their teeth in check, you should listen out for scratching noises coming from the walls and loft and look out for gnaw marks on surfaces and skirting boards.

Unpleasant odours

Active infestations may also have a nose wrinkling odour of musty unpleasantness, and if you can’t sniff them out then your family pet just might!

Stains and smears

Living in such dirty environments, rats tend to have greasy bodies and due to their poor eyesight, will often leave smudge and smear marks along work surfaces and walls as they scamper about. They have long tails and distinctive footprints so look out for imprints in dusty areas.

Hiding spaces

Rats need a constant water supply taking in up to 60ml each day as well a steady stream of food sources and a warm place to rest. For these reasons our lofts, walls and garden spaces provide the perfect setting in which to nest. Kitchen appliances are also a great place to start your game of rat hide and seek. Washing machines and dishwashers not only give off heat but are handy when rats want to pop out for a bite to eat.

If you think you have rats then give Project Multi Pest a call, and we will come and investigate.

One solution to solving your rat situation

Getting rid of rats is not an easy task. Once they have taken up residency and start to multiply the problem can easily start to get out of hand.

As rats are natural scavengers, they will eat anything, and everything, put in their path. Therefore, in order to gain back control, one of the easiest ways to kill a rat is to provide it with food that has been laced in poison.

However, poison is far from a humane choice when dealing with rats. Modern poison (while effective), leads to a long and lingering death. A rat can take four days to die after ingesting poison, in which time they may have managed to crawl away into a small space to die. This makes it difficult to access and remove the body, leading to terrible odours permeating your business or home.

It is also important to note that rat poison can prove deadly to our children, fur babies, and surrounding wildlife due to accidental ingestion or secondary poisoning.

On top of this, in the endless fight between man and rat it appears that the rodent is winning the day, evolving to become resistant to the poison we set. Therefore, it is important that we seek out other methods for dealing with rats!

Fortunately, at Project Multi Pest we already have a better solution…
