Rat Pest Control

5 Star Service and Hundreds of Happy Customers in:
Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire & North London

A rat infestation is often a big problem for both businesses and homes. Rats can carry dangerous diseases and lead to business premises being shut down. At Area Pest Control, we are experts in rat pest control and on hand to help with all levels of rat and rodent problems.

If you are looking for pest controllers in my area, then look no further than Area Pest Control. We have been helping commercial and domestic customers with rat pest control and other types of pest removal for more than 11 years. 

Do I Need Rat Pest Control?

Rats can be difficult to spot because they usually only come out during the night. If you suspect you have a rat infestation, then look out for common signs including;

  • Rat droppings
  • Bite and gnaw marks
  • Sounds of movement and scratching in walls and floorboards

If you do have rats in your property, it is essential you handle the infestation immediately before they cause damage or harm. It is doubtful that a property would have just one rat, and rat pest control services are vital for effectively removing all rodents and preventing them from returning.

Rat Pest Control From Area Pest Control

Here at Area Pest Control, our team of pest controllers are BPCA certified and fully trained to handle rat problems in all types of properties. Our rat pest control services include;

  • Access Points In Walls And Ceilings: Rats will commonly live in wall cavities and ceilings, and from there they can access all areas in a property. Most properties do not have direct access to cavity walls, making it difficult to reach the rats and set bait. Our pest removal team can create a specialist access point which can be used to look into wall cavities and spot rats and possible damage. 
  • Rat Pest Control Treatments: Once rats have been identified and can be accessed, we will use a range of pest removal treatments. These depend on the level of infestation and type of property but generally involve rat traps and poison. By using dedicated access points, rat poison is kept safely away from pets and children. 
  • Entry Point Identification And Proofing: Our rat pest control team will carry out an extensive survey of your property to identify pest entry points. We will then provide thorough advice and guidance on the best ways to block and eradicate these entry points to avoid future infestations.

I contacted Area Pest Control about a problem I was having with mice. They came out to my property and placed traps and bait throughout. What impressed me most was the effort made to search for all possible entry points, not just the obvious route the mice gained via the kitchen.
