In order to determine if you have a rat infestation you must first know the signs to look for!
The obvious sign would be if dead or living rats are seen within or close to the outside perimeters of the building. If one exists then it is possible that there is already a full infestation you'll need the assistance of a Cheesden Rat Control company as soon as possible.
The next telling sign is the presence of droppings; they are oblong, dark in color and comparable to a raisin but the surface of the droppings is smooth.
If there are no visible droppings and you still think you may have a problem with these pests you can shine a black light on to the floor. The black light will light up the urine tracks and makes them visible for you to see.
The next sign that may indicate you need a Cheesden Rat Control companyrat is finding dirt or grease marks along the lower parts of walls or along the floor. It is possible to hear scratching or scurrying under the floorboards if rats are present.
Rats in the loft will sound like little tapping or grinding in the ceiling.
Rat damage is characterized by large holes in the floors and walls. These holes will have large tooth marks that are rough in appearance. These little pests will gnaw on just about any hard, non edible materials like plastic and wood making rat control a little more difficult.
Locating the Nesting Hole
Locating the rat hole can be a difficult task. Inside the building they tend to be in locations where bricks, wood or tile may be rotted. They can exist between floorboards, in closets, cluttered areas or in places surrounding water pipes. These holes will lead to the nest. The rats may even use the gas pipe entry hole to enter into the building.
The nests can be found virtually anywhere. Cheesden residents may find nests in attics, lofts, beneath the floor and any other place that remains unvisited. When outdoors the nests can be found at the edges of paving, drains, drain covers and near your garden which supplies them with food. These nesting habits can compromise an infested buildings structure by gnawing through the buildings main support beams or causing a fire by gnawing through electrical cables.
