About Rats

Rats are intelligent and resourceful rodents. Captive bred rats can even be trained and can make good pets, but wild rats can be aggressive and crafty and cause all sorts of problems. Rats will attack to defend themselves or the nests and can do a surprising amount of damage. They can also carry fleas and other parasites which can be passed on to pets and sometimes to people. Rat droppings can contain bacteria and viruses which affect people and can contaminate the food that the rats get into.

Rats are remarkably good at climbing and getting into tight spaces, making it easy for them to get into buildings even if they are relatively new. Rats can cause damage by chewing on structures and if their droppings accumulate in one area, and they can create a serious fire hazard by chewing on the insulation surrounding electrical wiring.

Controlling Rats

ratGetting rid of an Alderley Edge rat infestation can be very difficult and may require more than one pest control treatment. Historically, cats and dogs like the rat terrier were used to get rid of rats. Nowadays most people consider their cats and dogs to be part of the family, and are aware of parasites and diseases that can be transmitted from rats.

Poison is another method used for Alderley Edge rat control, but it must be used with care, preferably by a trained pest control expert. Pets and children can be poisoned by badly placed rat poison, and poisoned rats can die in an inaccessible place and create a different sort of problem as they decay.

Trapping - with live traps or kill traps - is another method of Alderley Edge rat control that is more effective and safer when done by an expert.

A Young's Pest Control treatment for rats may involve many different techniques, depending on the size of the infestation and layout of the area, but their expert service guarantees that the job will get done right and right away, and may also be able to provide suggestions to keep future infestations from happening.
