Entrust the rat removal job to a skilled exterminator near you
Having a sleepless night or two, due to gnawing or screeching noises coming from your attic? Then, you should get your property inspected by a rodent control professional straightaway. This way, you’ll know for sure what type of vermin have settled in your home. You see, rodents, such as rats or mice, are some of the most common pests in both residential and commercial properties in UK cities, and their timely extermination is a must. Why?
For a start, rodents breed uncontrollably and can affect neighbouring properties in no time. In fact, the rat infestation in your home or place of business might be exactly caused by the lack of vigilance of your neighbours. They are nocturnal and excellent climbers, so they can sneak unnoticed inside your place. Rats are also difficult to trap, therefore, don’t waste a minute on dealing with the vermin yourself, as this will prolong the problem and make the rat population grow, but call in a Fantastic exterminator, who’s got the experience, equipment and skills to resolve the issue.
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:
- Cause damage to your electrical system, thus, there is a risk of fire hazards and loss of power;
- Contaminate food that has not been stored correctly and this way transmit a dangerous disease they might carry;
- Adversely affect the integrity of your property’s structure, as they chew and gnaw their way through wood fixtures to make their burrows;
- Damage various of your possessions, like furniture and books, even items made of metal;
- Create entry points for other types of pests, such as cockroaches, ants, carpet beetles and more;
- Cause another secondary pest problem, such as a flea or, sometimes, a bed bug infestation.

Frequently asked questions
Q: How do I stop rats from entering my house?
A: There are many actions you can take against a potential rats infestation, in order to prevent diseases and ensure that you live in a pest-free environment. Some of the things you can do include the following: store your and your pet food properly in tightly closed containers; maintain a clutter-free and clean home at all times; repair leaks and seal possible entry points; keep your garden neat and tidy, etc.
Q: Does the rat control treatment pose a risk to my pets’ health?
A: Not really, as the method should not adversely affect people and non-target animals. The exterminator will place the traps with poisonous bait out of children and pets’ reach. Also, these are actually tamper-resistant bait stations. Still, you should monitor your kids and cats or dogs to minimise any risks.
Q: How long does it take for the rat poison to work?
A: How quickly you get the desired results and eliminate your rat problem will depend on the size of the rats, as well as on how much of the pesticide they have ingested. Also, as we’ve mentioned above, these rodents are neophobic. So, even when a lethal dose of the rodenticide has been used, it may still take a while for the method to kill rats that are actually hesitant to check out the bait.

A: Absolutely. Join our Fantastic Club and pay special pest control rates for a whole year!
