Leeds Pest Control for Rats

For the homeowner, rats are an unnerving problem. They cause a host of issues, mainly health problems. They mark their territory wherever they go, and rats and mice urine carries a wealth of unpleasant diseases. As well as making a home in your garden, they can be found in floorboards and lofts. They gnaw on anything they can find too, from pipes to cables.

This causes you as a homeowner multiple – expensive – problems. Any infestation might be embarrassing. However, Leeds pest control services deal with the presence of rodents regularly. Large towns and cities, like Leeds, are a thriving ground for hungry, busy pests who seek out food and warmth. And they breed quickly.

Rat Control and Property Care

Whether your Leeds property is for residential or commercial use, many pests, such as birds, bees, or rodents, can cause significant damage to the property building structure. In either case, when an issue gets discovered, it must get dealt with quickly and effectively.

Many Leeds property management companies get tempted to deal with the pest control issue themselves, but this is not recommended. Pest vermin can be dangerous and difficult to remove, and there is no one size fits all solution to dealing with them.

How much does a rat exterminator cost in the UK?


The cost of rat extermination is usually between £95-£200, with the average quote at around £150. A trained exterminator’s success rate is incredibly high, and plenty of pest control technicians (rat catchers) offer an initial inspection before treatment & property care.


Why might you find rats in homes and businesses?


Finding rats at home and businesses is more common than you may think. It’s no surprise when you consider the rodent’s population. British Pest Control Association estimates there’s between 10.5 million and 120 million in the UK. It’s a problem that you’ll find both in countryside areas and busy, vibrant areas of Leeds (think of Chapel Allerton, and it’s buzzing café lifestyle).

Rodents can crawl into air vents, attracted by the smell of food or something as simple as dropped crumbs. And they thrive in milder winters. So with less snow around, and the concerns of global warming, the rodents are even more likely to make an appearance.


How can you get rid of rats’ immediately?


All homeowners discovering a rats infestation need to call a professional service pest control company,

like Apex Pest Control Leeds, straight away. A quick reaction prevents further damage being caused to health and property. All businesses must act promptly too. In fact, the Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 states that property owners have a legal obligation to keep premises rodent-free. Rats threaten health or property, so you must immediately report infestations to your Leeds local pest control technicians.

Leeds City Council takes care of some pest control problems. However, it’s only a small part of their responsibilities. When you need to act fast, local pest control experts, like Apex Pest Control Leeds, respond promptly and professionally.


Does seeing one rat mean I have more?

Yes, if you see one rat, there is typically many more living in your dwelling, in the attic or cavity walls. Rats’ are social creatures by nature, and they breed very quickly if you see a single rat, there is usually a chance that you have more than one.
