“Rats are more likely to move indoors and invade your property during winter” says the British Pest Control Association. As we start to see a drop in temperatures and reduced daylight, rodents start to look for areas that offer warmth, food and shelter. These areas often include properties – both homes, factories, and offices.
There are some tell-tale signs that rats are living in your property, so if you do see gnaw marks or hear scratching noises, it is likely that you have already been infested. If this is the case, you can find more information on how you can eliminate this problem on our rat-proofing page. Of course, deterring rats from entering your property right from the get go is extremely beneficial, and rat-proofing your house or commercial building could save you time, money, and stress.
As the colder weather sets in, it’s time to completely rat-proof your property to reduce the risk of spotting rodents roaming around! Take a look at our rat prevention checklist for handy tips on keeping the rodents away.
