Sydney Rat Removal

A Rat can be found anywhere, where there is shelter and food! Shelter for a rat may include sheds, kitchens; under concrete, garbage or roofs; farms and open fields. These pests like to explore their environment and they also remember the location of items such as food, water, and shelter. When a new object (eg. trap or baits) is placed into their area, they will avoid it initially.

Rats have very poor eyesight and are colour blind, but their other senses (eg. smell, taste) are very keen! Rats are common throughout the year but may become more problematic in winter as these pests search warm places to live in. They build nests in hidden and warm areas and reproduce rapidly which in turn, increases the risk of damage to structures and health. If you notice any of the following signs, call your pest control professional for an inspection and management solution
