What damage could rats do to your property? They will chew through anything – cinder block, wood, glass, metal, the rats will take on pretty much anything, which is why they can cause untold damage to both homes, businesses and the occasional finger.
Flooding from gnawed pipes and electrical fires from chewed wires may be associated with rat infestations.
Oxfordshire pest control technicians are all trained and qualified to deal with your rat infestation in the best possible way. The common way of dealing with the rats inside the property will be to apply a rodenticide in tamper proof bait boxes.
How to prevent rats on your property:
- Eliminate all gaps that they could use as access. Gaps around pipes and under sheds, as rats only need a gap of 15mm to gain entry to a structure.
- Remove all potential nesting sites. Rats love compost heaps, turn the heaps regularly.
- Ensure all drains are covered.
- Bird feeders are a massive food source for rats. Remove as much of the spilled feed as possible to reduce the source of food.
- Household waste needs to be covered as best possible. Ensure all bin lids are closed.
