Rat Problem Telford

Persistent and determined, rats can even chew through nearly anything to infiltrate spaces. If they manage to enter your home or business, they could bring along diseases or cause damages, and food contamination. Swift action is crucial due to the potential problems rats can cause:

Structural Damage: Rats incessantly gnaw, harming insulation, floor joists, pipes, doors, and floorboards. They utilise various materials for nesting, including paper, linen, and plastic.

Food Contamination: Rat urine and droppings carry pathogens, leading to diseases like Weil’s disease, rat bite fever, and salmonellosis.

Impact on Businesses: Industries such as food processing, manufacturing, and food services suffer immediate trust loss from customers and employees. Rat-induced damage affects equipment, leading to losses and even product recalls. Legal issues might arise if regulations aren’t followed.

Outdoor Risks: Rats outside commercial premises pose risks, especially for sectors with zero pest tolerance.


Discovering rats is distressing, but prevention is possible:
  1. Secure Storage: Store food in containers with tight-fitting lids, preferably made of metal or glass.
  2. Clutter Control: Minimise hiding spots by tidying indoors and outdoors.
  3. Proper Waste Management: Use secure metal bins for outdoor rubbish to deter rats.
  4. Pet Food Care: Store pet food in well-sealed containers and clean up debris.
  5. Garden Maintenance: Keep gardens debris-free and avoid adding organic food waste to compost.
  6. Rat Behaviour: Understand their climbing, burrowing, and gnawing habits.
  7. Professional Solutions: Certified technicians offer effective, safe rat control.
  8. Rodenticides: Industry-leading treatments include a variety of rodenticides suitable for different situations.
  9. Comprehensive Approach: A planned, monitored anti-pest program addresses rat issues.
  10. Tailored Solutions: Technicians assess the infestation, species, and breeding sites to tailor treatments.
  11. Proactive Measures: Recommendations for proactive actions accompany treatment.
