Detecting a Lymm Rat Infestation
A good rule when considering the possibility of a rodent infestation is that if there's one, there's a hundred. Seeing a rat in the house may mean there is only one, but the odds of that are low - and Lymm rat control services will be needed either way. Rat droppings in cupboards and behind furniture, unusual noises and chewing sounds from inside walls or ceilings, or evidence of chewing damage are all excellent indicators of a rat infestation.
How to Get Rid of Rats
After finding an infestation, the best way to get rid of rats is to call an expert. Young's Pest Control has years of experience with rodent control and can tell if the problem is rats or mice and how best to deal with it. For small numbers of rats, rat removal with humane traps may be possible if relocated far enough away. Kill traps and poisons can be used for more significant numbers, but they must be used correctly and with appropriate caution.
Health & Safety
Rat poison can poison other animals as well, including people. Cats, dogs and birds that prey on or scavenge dead rats can be killed from the residual toxin in the rat's body, and children can accidentally ingest poison they find. Even just storing and handling rat poison carries a risk of accidental contamination. Traps must be placed so that curious pets or children don't injure themselves by investigating them. Rats themselves can bite and carry parasites, bacteria or viruses on their bodies or in their droppings that can affect people. Getting rid of them is also vital so that they don't cause damage to wiring and wooden parts.
Experts with experience in the pest control treatment options recommended for rats can ensure that health and safety risks are eliminated or minimised by using and placing traps, poison and any other treatments needed in the right way. They can also help ensure that dead rats are correctly disposed of and may help prevent future rat problems. The staff at Young's are available 24 hours a day and happy to help.
