Rat Information


Rat Control Essex – Rats are one of the most common pests in the UK, they can be very persistent and very distressing should they gain access to your home or business. If they do gain access then they can cause damage, contaminate food and spread disease. So it’s vital to act fast and eliminate a rat infestation immediately using a professional pest control company.

The most common rat in the UK is the brown rat or ‘Norway Rat’, even though they largely live outdoors, they can gain access into your properties through holes in walls or drain defects. Brown rats breed rapidly so left untreated can quickly result in a serious infestation. They are known to carry the bacteria ‘Leptospirosis better known as Weils Disease’ which can cause very serious symptoms in humans.

During the visit our Pest2kill technician will carry out a “risk-assessment” checking for any hazards on the property / area and locating the source of the infestation. The technician will provide you, where possible, with further advice for preventing a further infestation, highlighting any factors that can improve the situation, such as: proofing, house-keeping, food storage etc.

Pest2Kill will undertake an in-depth assessment of your property, after establishing the type and species of pest present, a baiting programme should be implemented. Our technicians aim to exterminate the rats without endangering people or non-target animals within the infested area. Being aware of the continuous changes that occur within a nest, this is take into consideration when assessing your property. Baits, therefore, have to be inaccessible to other animals (domestic pets).

Should there be a need to use baits in domestic areas, tamper-resistant bait-boxes must be used to protect the health of non-target animals, children and adults.

Usually, follow-up surveys will be carried out within seven working days after the initial baiting programme has been implemented, some situations, however, may require more frequent (daily) visits.
