Rats in your property can be not only incredibly dangerous but incredibly expensive. Often rats get in through a break in the sewers, but they can get in just as easily through other specific areas, even chewing through plastic airbricks.  If you believe a rat has got into your property, or have seen one in the garden, you need a rat catcher - dont delay, call Exopest straight away for a prompt response.

Often you wont even realise rats are present in your home until you hear scratching coming from the attic, or find stored foodstuff in the kitchen that appears to have been nibbled, moved or has even disappeared.

If you need to feed the birds, limit the food to what they will eat. Dont leave down so much that it gets left overnight

Make sure your compost bins are rat proof. Sit them on a layer of mesh to stop rats burrowing underneath to get to the food scraps

Keep an eye on your access chambers (manholes)

Rats will always be in  the sewers, they like it because theres a food source and a nice constant temperature. Any breaks or holes in and around your access chambers need to be sorted straight away to stop a continuous rat run.
