More About Rats

Why are rats a pest in the home? There are several different levels of rat infestation that range from the minor instances of seeing a rat on a one off occasion at the bottom of your garden - to a full blown rat colony consisting of several generations that are causing substantial damage to buildings, electrical wiring and spreading several diseases.

Getting rid of rats in Berkshire.

The worst type of rat problems in the home occur when the Rat colony has access to shelter, water, available food and are left to breed and prosper in numbers. As the colony increases in size, or as the colder winter months commence, the rat hazards increase as they attempt to enter buildings occupied by humans to find food and shelter.

Rats are known to carry parasites such as fleas, ticks and mites which many people can be allergic to. Several diseases are also known to be carried (and spread) by rats such as:

  • E Coli
  • Salmonella
  • Weil’s disease (leptospirosis)
  • Cryptosporidiosis
  • Tuberculosis
