Have you already tried the Best Rat Repellents & Deterrents?

Rat killer products and Rat Repellents can deter Rats and get rid of them temporarily, but these do not eliminate the problem of Rat Infestations inside or around your property. Contact our team for long-lasting Rat extermination methods focusing on removing Rat nests and sealing entry points throughout your home or workplace. Dealing with Rats can be challenging; speak to a member of our West London pest control team for effective Rat Control Treatments and receive expert guidance on how to get rid of Rats once and for all.

To decide on the best Rat Control Treatment for your property we need to know exactly what type of Rat Infestation we are dealing with. During the survey we will establish the species of Rat, locate the Rat Nests and identify the entry points used by the Rats to access your home or commercial premises.


A full property inspection will be carried out by our professional Rat Controllers and a written report will be produced, detailing the best course of action for how to get rid of the Rats for the long-term.


Our 24 hour Rat Controllers will advise you on the best way to get rid of Rats according to the results of the Rat Control Survey. There are many ways of targeting Rodents but it depends on the severity of the Rat infestation in or around your West London property. We use Live Rat Traps, Snap Traps and Rodenticides (otherwise known as Rat Poison).


Other Rat Control methods include Traps in tamper proof boxes, Rat Bait Stations (with Rodenticides), Contact Gels and Foams. Contact our team for expert guidance on how to keep Rats away from your home or business premises anywhere in West London or throughout Twickenham, Kingston & Richmond.


Rat Proofing methods also come in various forms and again, we can only advise you on the best Rat Proofing method for your property once the Rat Control Survey has been carried out.


We will assess the holes used by the Rats to access your property and offer solutions such as Wire Mesh to cover access holes or concrete/brickwork to seal holes. Professional property cleaning and sanitation is also provided to prevent future infestations.

control them!


Most Common Rat in UK:

The most common Rats in UK are the Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) otherwise known as the Norway Rat, and the Black Rat (Rattus Rattus) also known as the Roof Rat. The Brown Rat is brown or grey and its body can grow up to 25cm long! The Black Rat on the other hand is slightly smaller and nearly always has black fur.


Rat Behaviour/Habits:

Rats are much like Mice when it comes to nesting. They like warm and sheltered locations near plenty of food and water! This could mean the Rat nest in your home is under the floorboards or in roof spaces (you’ll hear them scratching). In warmer climates Rats tend to nest outside and will burrow under buildings to reach sewer systems. They require water daily to survive and eat nearly every type of food humans eat.


Signs of Rat Infestation:

Here’s a few telltale signs on how to spot a Rat Infestation in your property:


Scratching Noises – rats become active at night & are often heard scratching away


Rat Nests - usually in dark and safe spaces away from the elements and predators


Roof Rat Droppings - often dark brown in colour and resemble rice grains


Grease Marks – Rat fur is greasy and when combined with dirt, creates dark grey smears which can often be found on surfaces, walls and across the floor.


Rat Control & Treatment Methods:

Have you tried everything to get rid of Rats from your property? Rat traps, Rat poisons, humane Rat control methods? All of these are just temporary solutions and do not solve the more serious problem of a Rat infestation inside your home. Book an inspection with our 24 hour recommended Rat Controllers.


Yes. Rats are known carriers of diseases which pose danger to humans. Tuberculosis, Salmonella and E.Coli are just a few examples of diseases that Rats carry in London and throughout the UK.
