Rat pest control in four simple steps
Each rat removal service starts with a thorough pest inspection. The rat exterminator will first inspect your property to identify the level of infestation. They’ll also look for possible entry points that need to be sealed.
The pest technician will then set up live-catch traps with bait strategically around your home and out of children's and pets’ reach. Our rat control service includes the blocking and sealing of small holes and cracks that rats have used to enter.
To get rid of rats, we strongly advise you to book our 3-month guaranteed rat removal service, which includes close monitoring and 2 follow-up inspections with further treatment if necessary.
Upon completion of the pest control service, you’ll receive a detailed report that you can use for future reference, as well as expert proofing advice and tips on how to avoid future rat infestations.
What clients are saying
Hire a skilled exterminator near you for rat removal
Rats, like mice, are incredibly intelligent creatures that thrive in both home and commercial environments. And while they can make adorable pets, they can also be abhorrent pests, as a rat infestation can be detrimental to both you and your property.
Just have a look below at how harmful rats can be to your health and property alike once they move indoors to seek shelter and hide:
- Rats use many different materials to create their nests, meaning wood, cloth, books and insulation can be damaged.
- They like to gnaw on electrical wires, which can cause short circuits and fire hazards.
- Rats contaminate food which hasn’t been correctly stored and can cause serious infections with their bites.
- They can grant secondary access to other pests, like cockroaches and ants and are known carriers of parasites like fleas.

Rat Control FAQ
Q: How do I get rid of rats permanently?
A: Rodenticides are considered one of the quickest and most effective methods of controlling rats. Our company uses a range of rodenticides that can be used indoors and outdoors. Rat proofing and prevention are also included in our rat control service range.
Q: What are the signs of having rats?
A: The most common signs of rat infestation are scratching noises, droppings, greasy marks, rat nests, holes in walls, and footprints. Rats are most active at night, so spotting the signs of an infestation is often much easier than spotting the rats themselves.
Q: What attracts rats to your house?
A: Food and shelter are the main factors attracting rats to your house. Undoubtedly, food waste will attract pests if left on the floor or surfaces. Rats nest in warm places such as lofts, attics, under eaves, and even cavity walls. To stay warm, rats seek shelter during the winter months.
Q: What is the most effective rat control?
A: Snap traps are the most effective way to get rid of rats fast. Wooden or plastic rat traps can effectively kill rats and are the least expensive option. When using a snap trap to capture a rat, use a trap labelled for rat control.
Q: How much is pest control for rats?
A: Rat extermination usually costs between £180 and £240. In addition to the initial pest inspection, we also provide follow-up visits. Trapping, disposing of dead rodents, and baiting are all included in the rat removal cost.
Q: Do rats smell?
A: The most common sign of rodent infestation for many homeowners is a pungent, musky smell. Whenever rats infest a home, they leave a mess of droppings and urine around the nest site, causing it to smell strongly of ammonia.
