Bracknell Pest Control covering Bracknell, Wokingham, Crowthorne and surrounding Berkshire areas. 

The rat problem around Bracknell is huge and it is only getting worse, research done in 2012 estimated that there were 10.5 million rats in the UK and the numbers have only risen since then. Rats are highly adaptable omnivores, they will eat anything they can get their claws on, generally eating up to 8 grams in one sitting, which means spread across a full day, that they’ll happily eat up to 30 grams. Rats need water to survive on a daily basis but they can live for a maximum of 2 weeks without any food. 

How would we know if you have rats? 

Rat droppings are black and oblong shaped with rounded ends, they’re much larger than a grain of rice and however they can be confused to squirrel droppings. As well as the smell from their faeces’ which is similar to a bin cupboard on a hot summers day, rats have a strong musty odour and leave black smear marks against surfaces which they come into regular contact with. 
Rats live in our sewers; this connects most properties together and gives these rodents a possible route into your home or business through displaced joints, breaks and even redundant systems. It is a common enough problem that builders do not cap an old system from an bathroom or kitchen which allows the rats to run up the dry channel and into your home! Everywhere in Berkshire has a rat issue and our years of experience in the Bracknell and Wokingham area means we already have an idea on how the rats are getting in!

How can you prevent them calling your house home? 

Start by taking a walk around your property looking for holes the size of your thumb, you may find rats entering through broken airbricks, disused pipes, build-overs or small gaps underneath door frames. One of the commonest access points for rats to get inti your home is via the drainage system, for our customers in Bracknell and Wokingham we can conduct drains surveys to determine whether that is in fact the entrance point. 

We aim to attend all rat call-outs within 24 hours. 

How can you prevent them calling your house home? 

If you have a shed or compost bin, ensure you put them on a concrete base or large slabs to prevent the rats tunnelling underneath. Keep your garden clear and if you feed the birds, try to use the wax blocks for less spillage. 

Our pest control treatment for rats. 

Here at Bracknell Pest Control we want that nothing more than to resolve your rat problem for good; We will not go straight to poison inside your property as it does not help us understand where they are coming in, which for us is the most important part of getting rid of rats in your loft, garage or living space. You will only ever get temporary control from the poison as the access point was never found. We track and investigate the entire property including CCTV drain surveying to find out your rats entry point, once we have the answer to the question as to how they get in, we trap, poison and proof to get you rat free. Our treatment cost is fixed and it does not limit you to a certain number of visits or proofing work; we’re there for you until the job is complete.
