They can also cause damage to your property and chew wires, causing potential fire risks with exposed electrical wires.

Rat infestations can be identified by several methods – scratching noises, droppings around your property, ammonia smells and teeth marks on wires and food packaging are just a few.

When trying to identify their entrance points into your property it is important to bear in mind that some rats can get through extremely small holes – sometimes as small as 10mm. It is important to ensure that holes are identified and sealed correctly to reduce the risk of rats entering your premises.

Pestagon Pest Control can not only help to identify the locations rats use as an entrance, but also take measures to manage and remove the infestation. Our highly experienced technicians can also offer advice for future prevention of rat infestations.

Facts about rats

  • Rats can eat chocolate.
  • They have poor vision – they compensate for their lack of sight by weaving their heads side to side. Doing this adds “motion” and allows them to see better by giving themselves better spacial awareness. They are also colourblind.
  • It is practically impossible to rat-proof your home. Rather than trying to do this, implement solutions to deter them instead.
  • Rats become lonely and depressed without companionship.
  • Think you can outsmart them? Think again – they have excellent memories. Once they learn a navigation route they won’t forget it!
