24 Hour Fallowfield Rat Control Treatment
Rats are one of the most common pests that plague humans. They can get into almost any type of building, from houses and apartments to offices, shops, factories and warehouses. And once they're in, their numbers increase exponentially, and they are almost impossible to get rid of without a Fallowfield rat exterminator.
Dangers of Ignoring a Rat Infestation
Rats can cause widespread damage to your property. They gain access to your property through gaps and holes in your walls, roof and foundation. If the opening they find isn't big enough, they can bite and scratch at it to widen it. They may even build their nests in upholstered furniture such as your sofas and armchairs, even your car seats. They have also been known to gnaw on electrical wiring, which can cause a fire in your home.
Rats also carry diseases that are transmittable to humans. Some of the diseases carried by rats include Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis and Salmonella. These diseases can be transmitted through rat droppings, urine, saliva, and bites. In addition, fleas, ticks, and various other parasites also make their way into your home on the back of rats.
With that in mind, you may want to hop on the Internet and search for a "Fallowfield rat catcher near me", but there are some signs you should look for first.
Do you have a rat infestation? Signs to look for:
This is one of the first signs people spot. Rat droppings are small, about 3mm to 5mm in size, and black in colour. You may spot their droppings along your walls, in corners, under and behind furniture, or inside cupboards.
Rats urinate wherever they go. It's their way of marking their routes and communicating with other rats. Their urine has a strong smell and, when mixed with dirt and grease, leaves visible stains that you may see on your walls and furniture.
• Gnaw marks and scratches
Rats gnaw and scratch at everything. You may see evidence of gnawing and rub on your furniture, books, clothing and bedding, as well as food boxes and wrappings.
• Rub marks
A rat's fur is covered with grease and dirt. When they walk around your home, they rub along the walls and leave stains that you may be able to see along their frequent routes.
You may also be able to see tracks such as footprints and tail marks, usually in places that have accumulated a layer of dust.
Rats are active at night. That's when they come out to feed. Listen for sounds such as scratching, squeaking and running in your ceiling, floorboards, cupboards or the dark corners of your room at night. Spotting a rat during the day is a sign of a severe infestation that needs immediate attention. Look for a company that provides 24-hour professional pest control rats.
Rats build their nests from materials such as paper, cardboard, plastic and cloth. Suppose you find that items made of these materials in your home have been shredded. In that case, it's likely that rats are responsible and have been collecting the fibres to line their nests. Check your basement, attics, closets and other low-traffic areas for nests.
If you spot any of these signs of rat activity in your home, call a 24-hour professional pest control rats expert from Youngs Pest Control, who will send out a Fallowfield rat exterminator to provide rat control treatments and removal service.
