Sadly rats are everywhere and that’s why there is such a demand for rats pest control. They pose a real problem for householders and businesses in towns, cities and rural locations; meaning our rat control service is in constant demand across central Scotland.
We provide fast, effective rat control that uses only approved trapping and baiting systems. These protect you, your family, your pets, your business, and the environment.
The most common type of rat in the UK is the Brown rat. Originally from Asia, they first entered Britain in the 18th Century via ships from Norway: hence their other common name, the Norwegian Rat.
Greyish brown in colour, this species can be up to 270 mm long plus the tail (10.5 inches). A female Norwegian Rat can have up to six litters in a year, with between 6 and 11 pups per litter. They in turn become sexually mature after just two or three months, so a localised problem can quickly escalate.
You need to take action as soon as you see a rat or suspect that rats are around.
