SOLVING RAT PROBLEMS IN CARDIFF


SOLVING RAT PROBLEMS IN CARDIFF

Having a rat in your living space is a awful experience for anyone. Not only do they carry bacteria which can spread disease they can also cause considerable damage.I work in the capital frequently so SOLVING RAT PROBLEMS IN CARDIFF is one of my main aims.

RATS ENTERING PROPERTIES

Rats enter properties in several ways. From adjoining properties ,through drain faults and through poor maintenance .Rats are by nature inquisitive.  They will exploit any opportunity to access food and shelter.Furthermore each rat lays a trail through its urine which other rats can follow.Rodenticide and traps have an important place in the control of rats, but blocking the entry point will exclude rats forever.

RAT BEHAVIOUR

Rats need to drink several times a day,eat and find shelter. They will need to exit a property several times a day. To drink and look for food.Sometimes they will try to eat our food in kitchens and waste bags.In buildings they will use cavities within walls to move throughout, often nesting in insulation in attic spaces.

A RECENT PROBLEM

A recent problem i encountered in Cardiff was in a town house near the city centre. The owners had heard scratching between the first and second floor.Food had been tampered with in the kitchen.Removal of the kitchen plinths revealed droppings and scraps of food. During a check of the outside i discovered a damaged tumble drier grill,see photo. Access to the cavity from this defect would allow rats to move throughout the building. No other entry points were found making the tumble drier grill especially relevant.

THE SOLUTION

The grill was replaced and traps were set in the kitchen. Two rats were caught over the next week,they were trapped inside the house after the repair. Finally the house was rat free.This is another example of SOLVING RAT PROBLEMS IN CARDIFF.
