Rats are one of the most common and most unpleasant pests. They enter our homes, usually attracted by crumbs of leftover food or food that is not stored properly, and it can be difficult to get rid of them. 
Rats are ridden with germs and can even carry disease. They are also well known for causing damage to properties by chewing through wood, plastic and even live wiring (posing a fire hazard while they are at it). 
As experts in pest control London, we frequently deal with infestations of rats on small and larger scales. That means we’ve got specialist knowledge on the most effective methods to pest control rats – and we thought we’d share a few of our insights here…
·Block the entry
An absolutely fundamental step in the pest control of rats is to find out where they are getting into the building and effectively block up this entry hole. It is common for there to be more than one entrance they are using so ensure your inspection is thorough.
·Trap the rats
As professionals in pest control London, we use trapping as one of the most effective means to get rid of rats – but the traps must be set carefully. This is best done by a professional with the right training and experience.
·Get a cat
Sometimes just the smell of a cat is usually enough to keep rats at bay so once all the rats have been exterminated, you could consider getting a cat to help your long-term prevention strategy!
