How To Prevent Rats
Knowing you have a rat problem can be distressing, so it’s best to do everything you can to avoid the situation in the first place.

The best way to deter rats is to deny them access to food, water and shelter.

Unlike mice, they need daily access to a water source. They only drink between 15ml and 60ml of water a day, but they need access to it easily and consistently.

They’re renowned for eating just about anything, but they prefer to eat small amounts of a wide variety of foods, giving them a varied diet.

Rat Prevention Tips
See our tips below on practical ways you can help to prevent a problem:

Keep foodstuffs in metal or glass containers with tight fitting lids.

Tidy inside the house and around the garden - less clutter means less places to hide.

Put outdoor rubbish bags in metal bins with securely fitted lids to stop them feeding from contents.

Clean up pet food and bird seed debris, and store pet food in robust containers with fitted lids - preferably above ground level.

Keep gardens free from debris. If you have a compost heap don’t include organic food waste, as this will attract them.

If you have already spotted signs of rats, such as droppings, prevention may already be too late.

We would advise you to act quickly to get rid of rats and prevent a large infestation.

How To Deter Rats
Rats are nimble and make the most of any opportunity to enter your home.

Black rats are good climbers and will happily inhabit lofts.

Brown rats can climb but tend to burrow more.

They are very adept at swimming in sewers and drain systems. Both species will gnaw at gaps to enlarge them enough for easy entry.

Proofing Your Home
Entrances - Young rats can squeeze through small gaps under doorways, so fit strips to the bottom of doors as a deterrent. They will also use cat flaps to get in and will enlarge gaps by gnawing to enter homes via integral garages.

Gaps in exterior walls - Holes or small openings (around utility cables or pipe work) need to be filled with stainless steel wire wool and caulking or concrete. Steel or aluminium plating can be used. Rats can jump, so check up to a height of about 4 feet.

Roofs - Rats climb along electrical cables or use overhanging branches to get into loft spaces and attics through gaps in broken roof tiles or under eaves. Repair roof damage and use wire mesh to seal gaps.

Drains and sewer pipes - Rats have been known to swim up damaged sewer pipes and get round u-bends in toilets, so get into the habit of keeping toilet seat lids closed. They will also use drain pipes and drainage outlets. Use tightly fitting metal grates or screens to cover drains, especially in basement areas. Regularly check pipe work and ensure any breakage is fixed immediately.

Rats are well known to spread disease, damage property and contaminate food and animal feed. If rats are able to get into your home or business, they can introduce disease carrying parasites like fleas, lice and ticks.

As they are most active between dusk and dawn, it is often easier to spots signs of a problem, rather than an actual rat.

How To Identify Signs of Rats
Learn to identify signs of a rat problem in your home or business

Rat Droppings - Tend to be found concentrated in specific locations as rats produce up to 40 droppings per night. Brown rat droppings are dark brown in a tapered, spindle shape – resembling a large grain of rice.

Scratching Noises - Black rats in particular are agile climbers, earning them their common name – the roof rat. They can easily gain access into loft spaces and upper floors of buildings, so scratching noises at night may suggest their presence. Brown rats on the other hand, are less adept climbers and more likely to be identified by a grinding or chattering noise they make with their teeth known as bruxing – as they scurry under decking, sheds and floorboards.

Footprints (running tracks) - Rats leave foot and tail marks in dusty, less-used areas of buildings. Shining a strong flashlight at a low angle should reveal tracks clearly. To establish if an infestation is active, sprinkle fine flour or talc along a small stretch of floor near the footprints and check for fresh tracks the next day.

Rub Marks - Rats use established routes along skirting boards and walls due to their poor eyesight. Grease and dirt on their bodies leave smudges and dark marks on both objects and surfaces they repeatedly brush against. These marks may indicate rodent activity, but as smears may remain for a long period of time, they are not a good gauge of an active infestation.

Burrows - Brown rats are well known for digging and excavating extensive burrow systems for shelter, food storage and nesting. They build burrows next to solid objects or structures (decking, garden sheds, garages etc.) and are also found in secluded, well vegetated areas such as gardens and wasteland.
