Rodent Control Services Brighton
We all know the saying in the United Kingdom that you are never more than 6 feet away from a rat. It has been estimated that there could be up to 12 million rats living in the UK. Most rats and rodents live in rural areas but we do find them in town and cities. You can be a real pain if you have a rat problem in your own home. That is where we come in to find where those pesky rats are getting in typically from a drainage system and fix the problem.
SIGNS THAT YOU MAY HAVE A RAT IN YOUR DRAINAGE SYSTEM
Rats love to chew just about anything especially food packages, paper, wood and plastics at there own will. You could have mice presents but how can you tell the difference between the two. Well, it turns out that rat droppings, dark looking pellets are a giveaway as they can be easily spotted and are 10 mm in size.
Being 10 mm in size they are much bigger than mice droppings. If you find droppings around the house, attic, garden or even near your drainage system, good chance you could have rats creeping around your house.
Rats are nocturnal animals, so they only like to come out of hiding at night time, you will hear strange sounds like scratching of flooring, chewing noises or scrabbling especially if they are in the attic, walls or under the floorboards. If you suspect you have rats in your home it is time to check your property.
THINGS TO CHECK IN YOUR PROPERTY FOR RAT INFESTATION
You will need to carefully check the outside of your home or property. You want to look for any sort of entrance as to where they could be getting into the house. Look for holes in the walls or brickwork.
Holes can be left from old piping being removed etc. Head up into the attic and check for any light that might be coming in, this could be a sign of a hole in the roof where rats could potentially climb in. Check around the drain piping these are areas where rats can chew there way into the attic through the fascia.
If you have done all the following checks and you are still hearing strange noises and finding chewed up paper, droppings and other stuff around the house. Then it could be possible that the rats and rodents are coming from the drainage system in the house. Time to hire an expert who can help solve the problem.
CALL IN THE RAT DRAINAGE EXPERTS
A damaged drain is usually the most common cause of rats getting into properties and homes. Manholes around your home are more than likely the cause and the main suspect for rats getting into your drainage system. But even if we find where the rats are getting into your house from the drainage, we also need to find out exactly where they are getting into the house so that the problem can be dealt with.
A drainage company like Detection Drain Services is a great way to start, we have state of the art CCTV systems that we can use to inspect the pipework for holes, cracks and any other types of entrances where rats can find there way in. It will allow us to find where the pesky rat enters the drain and exits the drain into the house.
Once we have located the source of how they are getting into the drains and the house, we will need to repair this as soon as possible to prevent it from happening again. Once the repair is complete we normally recommend to our customers to have a blocker put in the drain which prevents rats from entering at any time in the future.
