Suspect a Rat Infestation in Your Home or Business?

Rats are rodents that have long, thick tails, small heads and large bodies, and are one of the most common pests found in UK homes and businesses. They often build burrows for their young in built-up areas across the East Midlands. They live communally, meaning there may be more than one rat inhabiting your premises. Here are some of the most common signs of a rat infestation that you should look out for...

Smears

Rats are greasy creatures and leave behind smears on surfaces they scuttle across. Greasy smears on skirting boards, walls, or floors are a common sign of an active rat infestation.

Damage

Rats are known to gnaw on things like wires, wood, furniture and pipes. If you notice chew marks on objects around your property, it could be a sign that you need our service.

Droppings

Rat droppings are dark in color, pellet-shaped, and about the size of a grain of rice. If you see droppings around your property, it's a strong indicator of rat activity in the area.

Noises

Rats are active at night, and you may hear scratching or scampering sounds coming from your walls, ceilings, or floors. We can stop them so you get a peaceful, noise-free sleep.

Trails

Rats leave trails in dusty areas in properties or even in the garden. We look for footprints, tail marks, or drag marks in dusty or muddy areas to spot a rat infestation and find them.

Nesting

Rats use a variety of materials to make their nests, including shredded paper, cloth, and other rubbish. If you find any of these materials, it could be a sign of a rat infestation.

Low Cost, Effective
Rat Removal Services

We use a variety of baiting techniques to effectively and safely eliminate rat infestations from your property. With our standard poison baits, we strategically place them in secure locations such as lofts and floor voids, where rats are known to travel. Our low environmental impact bait, Selontra, is used for faster control of rat infestations through speed baiting techniques. Whichever method we use, we always ensure the safety of your family, pets, and non-target species, and remove all baits, boxes, and carcasses after the treatment is completed.

Standard

At Pest Control Assist, we use the most effective standard poison for rodents, including anti-coagulants such as Bromodiolone, Difenacoum, or Brodifacoum. These baits are placed in secure spaces such as lofts, floor voids, or secure boxes to ensure they are not accessed by non-target species. The rats feed on the bait and die after a few feeds or a single feed, depending on the type of poison used. Once the treatment is completed, all baits, boxes, and carcasses are removed to reduce their impact on non-target species. We restore the affected areas back to normal so you’d never know we were there!

Environmental

For a more environmentally friendly option, we offer Selontra, a new non-anti-coagulant bait that provides faster control of rat infestations through speed baiting techniques. This bait makes an area rodent-free within 7 days, and the active ingredient, Cholecalciferol, stops feeding after 1 day, reducing contamination and the risk of disease. It is neither persistent in the environment nor bio-accumulative, and rodents readily metabolise it, reducing its impact on non-target species. We always consider the impact of our methods and choose the most suitable solution for each situation.
