Brown rats often live in filthy conditions and carry a number of nasty diseases the best known of which is Weil’s disease. They prefer small enclosed spaces and get around by smell and touch. Rats usually feed on cereals but will quickly exploit any available food source. Brown rats are able to reproduce all year round and a single female can produce more than forty young in a year.
We received a phone call recently from a local gentleman who was hearing strange noises coming from the attic of his family home.
He told us that this wasn’t the first time it had happened and a couple of times over the last year or so rats had got into his house and caused a disturbance. Although other companies he used had “got rid” of the problem for a time, no one had been able to offer a permanent solution.
Now we like a challenge so we arranged a convenient time to inspect the property with the homeowner intent on solving his problem once and for all.
During our inspection we found all of the areas where the rats had been hiding and got a picture of their movements around the house. We immediately began an intensive treatment to remove the rats from the property and continued the search for the cause of the problem. Now there are lots of ways that rats can enter a house but from our previous experience we believed a damaged sewer pipe was responsible in this case and we quickly arranged for a camera survey to confirm this.
Now we had identified where the rats had been entering and the damaged pipe was repaired we could confidently tell the homeowner that an end to his yearlong rat problem was finally in sight. We made two further visits to ensure there were no more rats left in the house and now noises in the attic are a thing of the past.
Identifying what was causing this reoccurring problem was the key to our success and meant we could provide the permanent solution our customer wanted.
