Evidence of a rat control incident in Prenton

Pestcontrol.me.uk is experienced in detecting a potential rat control incident. Our technicians discovered rat runs and smear marks on the loft insulation. Rats develop a buildup of grease and dirt in their fur. As a result, when the rats brush against a surface they will leave a smear mark. However, smear marks are long lasting. Therefore, these marks are not always reliable indicators of a current infestation. Additionally, however, there was a very strong smell of rat urine. It was clearly that a rat control incident was in progress.

Location of the entry point of the rat infestation

The rats had found an entry point in a broken air vent at the back of the property. Subsequently, they climbed up the inside of the cavity wall and into the loft. Furthermore, once the rats were in the wall cavity they gained to access to the kitchen and the bathroom. As a result, the rat control incident became progressively more serious.
