Rats are one of the most universally dreaded pests, mainly due to their ability to spread disease and cause widespread damage. In the UK we mostly encounter common brown rats, whose innocuous appearance belies the fact that they carry a range of seriously unpleasant and potentially fatal diseases such as salmonella, toxoplasmosis and Weil’s disease. The gnawing activity of rats can also cause very substantial damage to property.
Indications of rat activity in premises include signs of droppings and evidence of holes in walls and floors. A rat infestation should be taken very seriously and a professional pest control expert should always be consulted regarding the best course of action to deal with it. Not only will the root of the problem need to be addressed, but the surrounding areas will also need to be treated to avoid re-infestation.
