Rats in Walls
Rats will live in any part of the architecture,
from the basement up to the attic, and of course, in between, the walls.
Sometimes they live and nest in the walls, and sometimes they just run up and down the walls, via wires and pipes,
as they travel through the house, perhaps from ground-level entry points up to the attic.
Once your Pest Controller has performed the treatment, it is
important that you follow the post treatment notes/advice to stop the
problem re-occurring, as if the home is not properly sealed, the problem with rats in
walls won't ever be solved.
Our Rat service
We provide four levels of service:
Please specify which type of treatment you require before
|1) Rat traps that
attract and kill rats. (used in internal spaces)
|2) Rat tubes filled
with our poison bait (for
exterior use) only rats can access the poison.
3) Sticky glue pads.
|4) Humane cage traps that
attract and trap rats*.
* A 20 euro extra charge for a humane cage is required
Rats can gain access to a dwelling through a multitude of routes,
some obvious some not. Call us and we will perform a thorough inspection of the dwelling to
identify the source of the problem.

Rats and Pets
Quite frankly the best solution for rats is to get a cat. Dogs are a waste of time.
If this is not an acceptable solution then poison works well. Unfortunately people are concerned about poison because they have pets. There are two reasons for this. Firstly if a pet finds and eats the poison then it will likely die. Second if a pet finds and eats a dead or dying rat then the same problem.
We have developed special "Rat Tubes" that dispense the poison, and other animals (Cats and Dogs) can't get to the poison to eat it - Problem solved.
The other misconception of Pets eating dead or dying rats. If the Pet was interested in rats
in the first place then you wouldn't have Rats. Secondly a Pet will always prefer fresh meat than dead meat.
So once Rats are spotted, usually by their droppings, they need to be
dealt with as soon as possible.
