Rat Control Manchester:
Rats are some of the most serious rodent pests in the world. They can carry diseases such as leptospirosis, salmonella and campylobacter and cause structural damage to buildings by gnawing and burrowing. It can be found both indoors and outdoors and, once colonised indoors, will even use cavity walls to move around the premises and to create an undisturbed breeding environment. The most common rat found in the UK is the brown or norway rat (Rattus novegicus). The black rat associated with the black death is now rare and usually only found at ports.
Brown Rats – Pest Control for Rats
The brown rat is generally brownish-grey in colour, with a paler greyish belly. An adult may weigh on average 340g.
The brown rat is a burrowing animal, and will live indoors, outdoors and in sewers. When brown rats are found in buildings it is usually due to holes in the fabric of the building and/or defective drainage. Rats will also emerge from any unblocked sewer, which includes dry toilet bowls.

TREATMENT & CONTROL for rat infestations in Manchester, Stockport & Cheshire.
Treatment involves assessing the extent of the problem, laying baits or traps as necessary, checking the baits or traps regularly and removing the material at the end of the treatment. Rats are notoriously neophobic and may be reluctant to approach DIY bait stations. Our pest control operatives are experienced in identifying and locating runs and places of harbourage, and the placement and use of bait to overcome bait shyness. The use of rodenticide is Controled by the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986. Sometimes more than one treatment will be required to ensure effective control.
Following our survey, a baiting programme will be discussed with you to take into account the particular circumstances and location of the infestation.
Commercial premises may require detailed reporting systems to include bait plans, COSHH assessments, monitoring reports, and hygiene, housekeeping and proofing recommendations.
All Aluminium Phosphide treatments are conducted by fully trained, qualified, insured and experienced technicians. All treatments are carried out to the manufacturers recommendations, specifications, and in accordance with UK law.

Prior to carrying out treatment against rats, a thorough inspection or survey of the property, site or area should take place to decide on the extent and size of the infestation.
Adjoining areas should also be included in this survey (as rodents may travel from other areas to feed or drink then return to a harbourage).
