How to look for signs of rats in your home.

All rats will leave droppings in and around your home and they have a natural instinct to chew (on anything). You can identify well used routes by the smear marks on walls and in some cases tracks that they leave behind. Rat burrows are the holes they leave when they dig in your garden beds or under the shed. Do also listen for them in wall cavities, lofts and voids under wooden flooring.

Steps you can take to avoid rats in your home.

You could avoid rats entering you home by following a few steps, ensure all of your bins have lids on and no holes in them. Place any stored food in plastic boxes with lids on, this will only be for food in soft accessible packaging. Ensure your bird feeders are kept tidy, rats love the food that the birds spill on the ground it’s like a take away for them. Ensure your drain covers are in good order, rats do use drains to navigate. Call APC for rat control in Oxfordshire on 01993 650 131.

What does APC do for you?

We will do a survey of your property to see exactly where they come in, why they are coming in and what keeps them there. On our first visit we will proof against entrance where possible and we will also place poison in secure bait boxes in the property. On our second visit we will replace the poison with a different one (this is to avoid rats becoming immune to the poison) and we will check to see if there are any new entry points and activity areas. All poisons and bait boxes will be removed at the end of the treatment. Call APC for rat control in Oxfordshire on 01993 650 131.
