Rat Control

They say you are never more than 6 feet from a rat!  A&S Pest Control will ensure they don't come any closer.

There are two kinds of rats found in the UK, the most common being the Brown Rat (also known as the Common Rat or the Norway Rat). The Brown Rat is normally a dull brown in colour, around 32cm to 43cm long from nose to tail, with small ears, a blunt nose and rather sharp teeth. The other is the Black Rat (also known as the Ship Rat), but this is usually only found around ports and airports and is quite unusual. 

Common signs of a rat infestation (aside from seeing the rat itself) are droppings or smear marks from the rats, usually along skirting boards, holes, nesting sites or rat runs. You may also see gnawing damage either to food containers, cables or the building itself, usually woodwork (skirting boards, wooden doors, etc). Or you may notice a nasty or unusual smell or hear scuttling in your ceiling or beneath floorboards. They can cause fires by chewing through electrical cables. If you suspect you have a rat infestation you really should take action quickly. Rats can breed at an alarming rate - females mature at just 10-12 weeks and average six litters a year, with around eight young in each litter.
