In the UK we have two species of rat, the Black Rat and the much more common Brown Rat (Norwegian Rat). Rats are intelligent animals and will quickly adapt to their environment taking advantage of any waste or easily accessible food. Besides hearing or seeing a rat, you can look for other telltale signs such as gnawed food packaging, droppings or burrows in the garden.
Each female rat can have up to 5 litters per year, with each litter averaging around 7- 9 pups (babies). So without effective control, their numbers can quickly increase and become harder to eradicate. If you think you have rats, don't hesitate and contact us to discuss your affordable treatment options
