Keeping Your Business and Home Pest Free
Rats commonly travel through the drainage system of domestic and commercial properties, going unnoticed until they appear above ground. When rats are able to gain access to property wall cavities, voids or roof spaces via a fault in the drain system, it will naturally provide the ideal environment for the rats to setup home and rear their young. If you can hear rats moving around walls, pipes, under the floor or in the roof space and no obvious entry points have been identified around the property, there is a good possiblity that the rats are coming out of a faulty drain. ACE Pest Management offer a complete rat control & CCTV drain inspection service to remove rats from your property in Teignbridge, Torbay and South Hams areas of Devon.
CCTV Drain Inspection
The main purpose of our CCTV drain inspection for rat activity is to find evidence of rats & entry points that rats can use to enter into the property when all other options have been exhausted, or where there is a long standing rat problem that has not been resolved by the use of rat traps or rat baits. Rats entering properties via the drain sysem is a common theme with rat infestations that keep returning after baiting or trapping treatments have been carried out.
ACE Pest Management are able to offer our customers a CCTV drain inspection service where rats are beleived to be entering the property via a fault in the drain system. Our specialist CCTV drain inspection camera allows us to record video footage, sound & take photos of any defects found in the drain system that rats could potentially exit from for a distance of up to 30 metres. The video & photo files can be recorded onto a memory card which can be sent to the client following the drain inspection.
Solving your rat problem
Solving a long standing rat problem is no easy task. If previous baiting and trapping methods have not resoved the problem & the rats keep returning, there must be an undiscovered entry point into the property, there is a good possibilty that the rat entry point will be due to a faulty drain. Quite often when rats are using the drain system to gain entry to a property there can be periods of inactivty, this can be an indication that the rats are leaving the property to visit a food and water source. If the rats are not entering your property to gain access to a food source such as the kitchen, then they will need to be feeding & drinking somewhere else on a daily basis.
All treatments carried out by ACE Pest Management comply with current health and safety legislation and COSSH.
