Rat Removal Birmingham
Complete Pest Management provide rat removal services throughout Birmingham. Birmingham, as reported in the Birmingham Mail, is the rap capital of the UK -seeing over 14,000 rat-related callouts every year!
Here at Complete Pest Management, we know that rodents can be a significant health risk and danger to your domestic property or commercial premises, which is why we offer professional rat control and extermination services that eradicate the pests for you.
The two most prominent rats in the UK are the Brown Rat and the Black rat. Both pose a serious health risk to humans and both can cause significant structural damage to your domestic or commercial premises, gnawing through wires, walls and doors. If you discover a rat in your home, do not panic, Complete Pest Management are here for you.
All About Rats
The biology and habits of rats make them notoriously difficult to control. Rats are especially persistent pests and will gnaw through metal, walls, doors and wires to gain access to your property. Once in, they spread diseases, damage your home and contaminate food.
Rats are difficult pests to control because they are very intelligent and highly social animals. They are most active during the night and have an excellent sense of touch and smell. If they thrive in an environment, rats can live for up to two years – also breeding during that time.
How Rats Get into Your Home
Rats are especially capable of squeezing through spaces that appear much too small for them. In fact, they can squeeze through a hole as small as ½ an inch in diameter. They can easy crawl through small holes in walls, gaps under doors, through floorboards in your home and even up through your toilet! They are swimmers so many rats will live in sewers, crawling up through toilets or broken drains. Even spaces that appear much too small for them to fit through, it is likely a rat will manage to squeeze itself through.
Rat Disease Information
Rats are carriers of disease and are equipped with large teeth, which they will use in defence if they feel threatened. You must not, under any circumstances, attempt to handle a rat as rats are capable of transmitting a number of diseases through their saliva, faeces and urine. Therefore, all rat removals should be undertaken by a trained professional.
How to Prevent Rats from Entering Your Home
Because rats can squeeze through very small spaces, it is imperative you seal all such holes to prevent the entry and re-entry of rats into your property. Prevention methods should be implemented early to maintain a rodent-free home. Rats are rapid breeders and your rat problem may start out small but can quickly grow to a full-blown rat infestation.
Another great prevention method is to keep rats away from any possible food sources such as food crumbs, garbage and dry sources like cereals. All food should be kept sealed and counters wiped clean. Cardboard objects are particularly attractive to rats as they like to use it in the construction of their nests, chewing up the boxes for use.
Identifying a Rat Problem
Rats are most active at night, so it is common to hear them scratching around in your walls or skittering across the floorboards of your property. Spotting the signs of a rat infestation is easier than you might think. The common signs you have rats in your property are:
- Rat droppings.
- Footprints in dust or undisturbed areas.
- Rat nests.
- Scratching noises in the walls, ceilings or under the floors.
- Holes in floors, doors and food packaging.
If you notice any of these signs in your home, it is very likely you have a rat infestation. So, call Complete Pest Management today. We can provide professional rat removal services.
