If you think you have spotted signs of a rat infestation, our professional pest control technicians can help.
Our domestic rat treatment (inside or outside) is based on 3 visits to site over an approx. 21-day period.
During the course of a treatment we can provide advice on ways to proof your home against rodent entry. This may include simple measures such as filling holes with cement to prevent rodent entry or we may discuss drains.
Cost of a 3-visit domestic treatment, for owner occupied property, is £240 including VAT (£288 if you keep chickens/livestock in garden)
Rats require three things to survive and thrive:
Why we control rats:
- Rats spread disease to humans via their droppings or urine.
- Rats can cause damage to property
- Rats contaminate food with their droppings, urine or fur.
Signs you have a rat problem
Fresh rodent droppings are shiny and soft, within 2-3 days they will harden and become dull in colour. Rat droppings are up to 12mm long and pellet shaped. Mouse droppings are 3-6mm long and have pointed ends (about the size of a grain of dry rice).
Smear marks occur from their coats regularly rubbing on walls as they make their way along trails to and from their nest site or in search of food
Rat burrows are typically found next to waterways and buildings i.e. under sheds, decking
Rats are normally heard at night. You may hear rats scratching, gnawing or scuttling around.
Gnawing marks on electrical cables, woodwork, plastic, brick and lead pipes, as well as torn bags of foodstuff and materials
Rats make their nests from soft materials such as loft insulation, paper, cardboard

What Our Clients Say
Mr C, Reading
Very professional company from first contact, a pleasure to deal with either by phone, email or in person. Wez, our technician knows his job well, is a very polite young man, gave good sound advice (I Google everything) and listened to our concerns. Always turned up at appointments on time and looking smart. I used another national pest control agency previously for the same job but didn't get the results or the attention to detail Vermatech and Wes gave. Highly recommended.
