A serious long term rat infestation affecting a terrace of six properties in Woodley, a drain had collapsed due to ground movement and the rats moved straight in. Long term rodent infestation bought to a speedy conclusion through our drain survey - we look further to resolve your rat problems.

Part of the drainage system had collapsed in a block of six properties; rats were reported as being heard in all of the separate houses and had also been seen in the kitchens.
Once in rats will exploit any small gap: cavity walls, around pipes and where joists run through and squeeze through to explore their surroundings. If this leads to a food supply like your kitchen then very quickly this can become a major infestation.
It was easy to identify that this was a drainage issue and we poisoned the drains whilst trapping inside; we then had to survey the system working our way along until the faulty drain was found.
Fortunately this part of the system was never connected and could be sealed up at no additional cost.
