Rats! Just the mere mention of the word can make some of us quiver. Whilst they say that you are never more than 20 feet from a rat you don’t want that 20 feet to be somewhere in your house! In fact in more urban areas like Plymouth and Exeter with a greater population, the chances are that you are even closer to a rat. Unfortunately for some Devon and Cornwall homes the presence of rats is an issue and one that needs to be treated. Not only are rats scary to some, they also carry diseases and can cause damage to your home by chewing through things – electric cables, pipes, eaves and insulation.
If you think you have a rat problem then it is vital that you get it seen to straight away. The moment you suspect that you might have one or more rats you must call in the experts. Left to their own devices they will happily make their home in your Plymouth or Exeter property and before long it won’t just be one rat you have to deal with. Not only will they breed but they will start to infest other areas. If they are able to roam around the home they can transfer diseases through their urine and droppings on to kitchen surfaces and other areas. In addition to this there is the risk of fire from chewing through electrical wires and cables.
Noises in the night are a good indication that you have a rodent problem. It may not be rats – it could be mice or birds that you can hear. At Falcon Environmental Services our pest control experts will be able to assess your Devon or Cornwall property and investigate the source of the noise and confirm if you do indeed have rats or other pests living with you. Once we have confirmed their presence and isolated their living area, we can then set to work using professional methods to remove the problem. It is much preferable to trying to resolve the problem yourself – have you ever tried to catch a rat before?
