How to get rid of Rats in Warwickshire

Rats are notorious carriers of disease, having been responsible for the outbreak of the Black Plague amongst many others. So, if you think you may have a rat infestation in your Warwickshire home or business, the first thing you need to do is call a professional pest control company to help you out.

Along with potentially carrying all sorts of harmful diseases, rats are also notoriously aggressive, having been known to bite children or pets while they sleep. What's more, if you happen to stumble upon their nest, they may also try to protect it and often try to attack in these situations. All of these factors mean that any rat infestation is best left to the experts, as only a professional pest control company will know the best methods of eliminating the problem.

Of course, you could just try to place rat traps around the home in hopes of catching them, which can definitely be effective if you're lucky enough to only have one rat in the home. However, they tend to live in groups, meaning that even if you happen to catch one or two with your traps, there are probably more of them around.

The best way to deal with a rat infestation is to prevent it before it starts, which can be as simple as trying to close up any places where they could hide and build their nests and making a concentrated effort to keep the home clean and free from food or garbage that may attract them. Still, that isn't much help if you've already got them in your home, and in this case, your only recourse is to hire an exterminator.

Most pest control companies use slow release poison to eliminate the rats, in the hopes that one rat will eat the poison and then bring it into the nest to kill the rest as well. Still, it may also be necessary to use traps or other methods if the infestation is severe.
