Fantastic Pest Control has the Expertise to Handle Your Rat Infestation

This is because the city produces vast amounts of waste, a good portion of which are edible food leftovers. Rats can cause substantial damage to your property and they are as unhygienic as it gets. If you spot even a single one around your property, don’t hesitate to contact Fantastic Pest Control for a comprehensive rat control London service.

Technician inspects for ratsWhen the exterminator arrives at your property he will very carefully inspect the place for openings the rats use as entry points.

The expert will use special equipment such as an endoscope camera, if necessary, for hard-to-reach places. He will also be able to tell the level of infestation, and determine what measures he should take.

Technician places bait for ratsYour pest exterminator will seal all rodent-sized entry points with durable expanding foam, wire wool and other sealants. In case of a high level infestation, he will also use bait boxes filled with rodenticides.

These boxes are carefully placed at discreet and hard-to-reach places, so neither children, nor pets would be able to access them.

Pest technician observes results after rat treatmentIf you choose our full treatment option, you can request your Fantastic rat removal specialist to return to your property or business and re-examine it. If he stumbles upon any rat carcasses, he will remove them for you.

However, if he happens to register any ongoing rodent activity, then you get up to two additional treatments for free which can be requested within a period of 3 months after the initial treatment.

Pest technician performs rat proofingIf needed, the rat pest control specialist will proof your place additionally. Upon request the technician can install the below listed items for rodent proofing the property at a small additional cost:

  • Door Brush Seals: They are attached to the bottom of the door to prevent mice and rats from entering through the small gap between the door and the floor.
  • Vent Mesh: The mesh is made of stainless steel and is installed over vents to prevent mice and rats from entering through the holes of the vent.

At the end, the technician will offer you some great advice on how to protect your property from rats and other pesky rodents.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I stop rats from entering my house?

There are many actions you can take against a potential rodent infestation. Some of the things you can do include placing foodstuffs inside metal boxes or glass jars, disposing of scattered pet food or bird seeds, maintaining a clutter-free home, and keeping your garden nice and tidy.

Can rats climb?

Black rats are exceptionally good at climbing vertical surfaces and usually hide in attics. Brown rats are nearly just as acrobatic but prefer digging a burrow right near or underneath sheds, garages, and walls. Often, these horizontal tunnels can become several metres long!

More info about rats >

What if the rats keep reappearing?

If despite sealing all entrances, the rats keep coming back into your property, the professional will use a powerful pesticide to eliminate your infestation. A few weeks later, the pest controller will return to check if your problem has been dealt with and remove any rat remains for you.

How is the price for rat control calculated?

It all depends on the numbers of visits you'll end up booking. Our services are paid per job and not per hour, so the exterminator will stay until the job is complete.

How long does it take for the rat poison to work?

How quickly you will see the results depends on the size of the rats, as well as on how much of the pesticide they have ingested. The specialist will use a carefully calculated amount that is harmless for your pets, yet effective against the rodents that have entered your property.

How do I get rid of rats without using poison?

There are many ways you can get rid of rats without using pesticides. For instance, you can treat rat entrances with natural repellents, such as pepper or peppermint oil. You can also grow Spearmint or Daffodils in your home to deter rodents. If the infestation has reached dangerous levels, you can purchase ultrasonic repellents or, as a last resort – electronic traps.

How do I keep rats away from my garden?

Rats loathe the smell of mint, so planting some in your garden should do the trick. If not, you can lay down snap traps armed with dried fruit, pet food, bacon, or nut bait. For maximum effect, place each of them 10 to 20 feet apart in the areas that rats use as pathways to your garden.
