Rats bring with them the threat of serious disease, namely Weil’s disease (leptospirosis) which is a bacterial disease spread through rat urine or other mucous membranes and can cause liver and kidney damage in humans.
Rats also carry diseases such as salmonella, contaminating food and water. The two main types of rat commonly found in the UK are the black rat and the brown rat. Signs that you may have rats in your building include:
A neophobic creature, rats do not readily accept new items introduced to their environment, which is why we are constantly researching and developing the best techniques to prevent rats entering and taking hold in your property.
