This is how we deal with rat infestations

There are 3 main aspects of the way we approach pest control treatments,of course, a bit different for every pest. Our pest control services are not hourly-based, which means that the rat exterminator will stay until everything is done and meets our fantastic quality standard. It all starts with...

  1. Property pest inspection
  2. This is an essential part of the service. The pest technician will carefully inspect the place in order to pinpoint all the holes and cavities that the rats are using as entry/exit points.

  3. Blocking rats entry points
  4. The idea is to cut the indoor access. That is why the London rat exterminator will block all rodent-size holes and cavities using expanding foam, sealants, and wool wire. Keep in mind that this applies for rat-sized holes only. Anything larger should be handled by a handyman instead.

  5. Placing rat baits
  6. When all entry points are sealed, there might be rats trapped inside the property. That is why the pest technician will place baits at key locations in order to capture the remaining rats.

What to do before the rat exterminator arrives

To enjoy a quick and efficient rat control service, consider taking a few measures:

  • Empty all rubbish bins;
  • Dispose of any baits or traps that you set yourself;

Best practices to prevent rat infestations:

  • Regularly empty all rubbish bins around the house and keep them clean;
  • Keep your garden well-trimmed and clear of rubbish piles;
  • Keep food tightly sealed and avoid spreading any in storage spaces;

  • Q: How can I stop rats from entering my home?

    A: There are all sorts of things that you can do against infestation from rats. For example, never let your garden become overgrown. Also, make sure that you don't leave food exposed overnight. And if there are any evident entrances that the rats can use, then consider what can be done about them.

  • Q: Can rats climb?

    A: Rats are incredibly acrobatic and proficient at climbing. For instance, black rats can easily climb up vertical surfaces. Therefore, they are able to reach higher areas of a property, such as the attic. Brown rats are also good at climbing, but they prefer to dig their burrows near garages, garden sheds, and walls.

  • Q: How long does it take for the treatment to take effect?

    A: It depends on the size of the rats and how often they will eat from the baits that were placed by the technician. We can't say for sure, really. They need to eat from the product at least 2 or 3 times in order to become affected.

  • Q: The rats keep appearing even after the cavities were blocked. What can be done?

    A: If this is indeed the case, then the technician will return to treat your property with a powerful rat-repelling product. Don't worry about it. No matter how persistent they are, we will be able to find a safe and effective solution.

  • Q: How can I keep the rats away from my garden?

    A: First of all, is your garden overgrown? Does it provide access to food and shelter for the rats? Consider these aspects first. On the other hand, you can resort to planting some mint, which is a natural rat repellent. If this doesn't help, then you might want to resort to baits and traps instead.

  • Q: Is there a way to naturally get rid of rats without using any poison?

    A: There are a few things that you can try. Applying oils, such as pepper or peppermint near at the affected areas might help. Growing spearmint or daffodils indoors is also considered helpful. However, keep in mind that your best bet is to have any cavities and entrances physically blocked.
