How do I know if I have a rat infestation?
If you hear rustling or scratching in the attic at night this might very well be a rat. During the winter months, rats will make a home of your attic if they can access it. It is the perfect place to stay warm and breed. Another sign of rats is droppings. These look like grains of rice and are often found in corners or along baseboards.

How can I get rid of rats without poison or traps?
If you have concerns about causing suffering to these animals the truth is there is no way to kill a rat humanely. Some people set a ‘live’ trap so they can catch the rat alive and then release it in the wild. However, it has been proven that rats dealt with in this way have a low survival rate.

Should I get professional rat removal?
Absolutely. Rats are a serious pest and should not be taken lightly. They spread diseases and can cause considerable damage to the structure of your house. A professional will treat your house against further infestations and advise you as to how to keep your house rat proof. So, if you are thinking of doing it yourself we would urge you to reconsider as rats really are a serious threat to your home and health.

What types of rat killer are there?
In general, there are two ways to kill a rat: poison and traps. Poisons are known as rodenticides and can be used to kill mice as well as rats. It can take anywhere between several hours to several weeks for a rat to die. Death is caused by internal bleeding. There are many different types of rattraps including glue rattraps, electronic rattraps as well as the traditional snap rattrap.

When is the best time to get rid of rats?
Rats are nocturnal creatures so setting traps or poison at night is the ideal time. Rat poison can also be harmful to your pet dog or cat so it is best to put it down when they are not active.
