If you have rats on your property, you have a legal responsibility to treat the infestation.
Rats can cause a lot of damage to buildings by their constant gnawing of the building fabric, cables and pipes. This can lead to fires or water leaks. Rats also carry diseases that can be a risk to our health.
How to treat a rat problem
We recommend that you use a pest control company that is a member of the British Pest Control Association or the National Pest Technicians Association.
