Rat Control - Invicta Pest Control Maidstone, Malling & Medway
Safe, effective rat control in Maidstone, Malling & Medway areas
If you suspect rat activity in or around your property, we can help.
The most common UK pest rat species is the Brown Rat (rattus norvegicus). These will live virtually anywhere that provides food, water and shelter. Sewers, compost bins, hedges and lofts are common habitats, and they will often thrive eating the food people put out for birds.
It’s very important to tackle rats as soon as you suspect a problem. They breed extremely quickly, with a coupler soon turning into a large scale problem. Rats are a major carrier of Weil’s disease (Leptospirosis), which is often fatal to humans. Therefore you should always wear protective gloves when handling anything that may have been in contact with rats, and thoroughly disinfect any areas they have touched.
The requirement for rats to constantly gnaw can also cause massive damage throughout your property. Many house fires are caused by rats chewing through electrical cables, and we even have one client who’s car had the main electrical loom chewed through, causing over £1,000 worth of damage!
Signs of rat infestations:
We are often asked: “How do I know if I have a Rat in my house?”, “Is the scratching sound from my ceiling rats?” and “What do rat droppings look like?”
Rats generally make quite loud banging and scratching noises when in a roof space. Chewed cables, pipes and woodwork are a good indication of rat activity, as are greasy smear marks along regular runs and access points. If you can smell rats, it is normally a sign of quite an established infestation.
Rats produce around 40 fairly large, cylindrical droppings per day.
Rats will often create burrows around gardens, especially in hedge roots and under compost bins, sheds and decking.
