Professional Knutsford Rat Control Services
Strange chewing noise coming from the walls? Finding mystery droppings in the back of the cupboard? Is the cat going crazy stalking something around the house? Any of these things could indicate a Knutsford rat infestation. Whether or not anyone has spotted a rat, the presence of droppings is a good indicator that professional pest control treatment is needed.
Detecting a Rat Infestation
Rats are stealthy and can fit through tight spaces, so it is easy for one to get into the building create a rat infestation before the occupants even know they are there. Obviously seeing a rat scurrying along a floorboard is a sure sign that Knutsford rat control is in order, but there are other signs. Persistent chewing sounds in the walls or ceiling, droppings in cupboards, or discovering nests, chew damage or droppings while doing repairs or renovations are all good indicators of a rodent problem, as is a pet bringing in a dead rat or mouse. Rats or mice, Young's Pest Control can assess the situation and select the best pest control treatment to guarantee it is taken care of.
Knutsford Rat Control Methods
Professional exterminators have a variety of tools at their disposal for rat removal. The most common tools to get rid of rats are traps and poisons. Live traps can be used for humane control, but will only be effective for removing a small number of rats, not an infestation. Kill traps are more effective but need to be properly bated and placed or the rats will not approach them. Poison is effective, but can sometimes be too effective - poisoned rats can go on to poison predators like hawks and owls and even cats and dogs, which is usually lethal. Of course, safety for the building occupants is important when using either poison or traps, so placing them out of reach of children and animals is important.
