These are some photographs of the different ways we have found rats acccessing into customers properties.
Try to maintain your drains and Sewer access points (manholes), a broken drain or holes around the top mean rats can escape and access homes and gardens.
Try not to throw birdfood around the garden too. If you feed the birds try doing it for a short time only, and clean up afterwards. Drains and bird food are the two single biggest reasons Exopest get called out for rat activity.
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, dont delay, call Exopest straight away for a prompt response.
Once we have eliminated your rat problem we can proof off holes to your house to help prevent any further problems and we can disinfect your rooms from diseases rats may have spread such as weil's disease, e.coli and salmonella.
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.
Rats infest over a million households annually here in the UK and the problem appears to be on the increase.
Big towns like Middlesbrough, Scarborough, Redcar and Whitby will always have rat problems, and its up to you to make sure that the towns problems dont become yours personally.
Apart from the fact rats have a tendancy to chew through wires as you can see in the photos on this page, and the huge fire risk implications this brings, rats carry deadly diseases such as Weil's disease and Salmonella, which can be transmitted to the surfaces they walk across.
It is always advised to seek help from a professional with regard to rats.

The Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949
This litle known Act, or the PDP Act 1949 as its also known, places a duty on homeowners to eradicate rats on their land or property. You can choose to attempt it yourself, call Exopest or another professional company in to eradicate them cleanly and swiftly, or you can employ the council to deal with them, if indeed your council has a pest control department. Please be aware if the council is made aware of a rodent infestation, the authority may serve notice on the property owner to eradicate the pests in a specified time frame.
