While a few rats might not seem like much of a problem, they quickly multiply; female rats can produce up to 12 litters of 6-8 young every year, and young rats are sexually mature after 3-4 months, going on to produce even more rats! No matter how many of these rodents are present, they bring the risk of property damage and health issues, which is why it’s necessary to control them.
As well as damaging building structures, wiring and plumbing by constantly gnawing, rats spread many diseases, including:
Getting rid of rats can be tricky, especially once they’ve started multiplying. Luckily, for home and business owners in Exeter, ACE Pest Management is on hand to provide effective rat control. With 10 years of combined experience, our team can solve all rat issues.
Our pest control services include:
First, we gather information about rat activity at your property. This includes talking with you and carrying out a thorough internal and external property inspection, checking for activity and possible entry points. As part of this process, we lift manhole covers and check for activity around pipes and benching – rats often enter through faulty drains.
Following the inspection, we can advise on a suitable pest control programme. Where possible, we place rodent traps rather than poison on the initial visit. This is kinder to the environment and prevents rodents from dying in inaccessible areas where we can’t remove the carcass.
ACE Pest Management will stay with you for as long as it takes to resolve your rat problem, giving you complete peace of mind. We don’t just put down rodenticide baits and clear the existing infestation; we ensure the rats have been removed and will not come back to your premises in Exeter or the surrounding areas. We maintain contact throughout the process and adjust our visits to suit rat activity and your schedule.
Most rat control treatments are carried out over a minimum of 3 visits.
Our rat infestation solutions include CCTV drain surveys to establish where rodents might enter your property through faulty, broken or weak pipes.
As a means of rat prevention and control, we can fit a stainless steel rat blocker that stops rats from entering the drain system while not impacting drain function.
