    Rat Pest Control in London 

    Rats, among other rodents, are a major issue for people living in London. Unfortunately, due to the abundance of food, shelter and water, it is estimated that there are over 18,000,000 rats in London! Therefore, the likelihood of London homes experiencing rat infestations is incredibly high. If you suspect you have a rat problem, it is imperative to take measures to try and keep this population down.


    Types of Rat

    The most common rat is the brown rat, and they can breed 5-8 times per year, producing up to 15 babies each time.

    Although black rats are less common, they can still be a nuisance if your home or business is located near a port. Furthermore, black rats can reproduce 3-12 times yearly with 6-8 babies at a time.

    Signs of a rat problem

    All it takes is one male and female rat to live in or around your home before the severity of this infestation exponentially multiplies. With the rapid breeding rates of rats, a small rat problem can quickly cause extreme property damage and affect your life. Some common signs to look out for so you can ensure efficient rat pest control include;


    Rat Droppings

    These are small, dark-coloured faeces which tend to be clustered together. One rat can leave almost 40 droppings per day, which can build up exceptionally quickly.


    Smell and Sound

    A common identifier of having rats on your property is the sound of scratching or scuttling. You may also find that there is a powerful ammonia-like smell in your home, which is a result of rat urine.


    Rat Damage

    Rats can gnaw through various objects; therefore, you may come across damaged bedding, wooden furniture, plastic containers, pipework and cable sheathing. This is a result of rats looking for food, shelter and materials for their nests. As rats carry a lot of diseases, this can be extremely dangerous if you touch, ingest or come into contact with chewed objects. As a result, your family could become very ill, so successful pest control is important.


    For 24/7 emergency rat removal, call Integrum on 0204 566 5522 for expert advice and successful solutions. Our rat extermination services in London and the South East of England will ensure your rat problem is solved and that your home has effective rat-proofing in place for the future.
