Rat Problems Rhondda.
Rat Problems Rhondda,one of the areas i cover is the Rhondda valleys.Like most other areas they have problems with rats.Ive known Ms M for a year not long after she bought an apartment in a converted chapel. Ms M unfortunately inherited a rat problem in her loft
Ms M called me and explained her situation. She was hearing scrating in the loft at night and her bedroom light had stopped working.A look in the loft revealed empty bait trays and rat droppings.The electric cable to her light had been chewed, This was repaired and she could see again to read in bed.The roof of the adjoining apartment was low to the ground at the rear and therefore needed investigating.
Tracking dust deployed on the first visit revealed a strong trail into next doors loft this was most noteworthy. This loft was lower to the ground at the rear therefore this could be the entry point.Rodenticide had been used in this loft previously, inside dwelling this only provides a temporary solution. Blocking the entry point stops rat problems forever. Ms M spoke to her neighbours who said they did not have problems themselves. They agreed to an examination of their roof and garden.
Rat Problems Rhondda. A hole was found under Ms M’s neighbour’s roof guttering,and the ground around the hole was smooth this was especially relevant as it showed a clear track.The hole was blocked using rat proof products. A trap was set in Ms M’s loft to capture any rats trapped after the repair.
The trap was empty on the this visit and no noises had been heard .Rats carry diseases such as Hantavirus,Leptosiosis and Salmonella.A spray treatment using a rodent disinfectant was used in the loft,see photo. Finally Ms M’s apartment is rat free.
