The two main species of rats causing problems in the Plymouth area are the black rat (Rattus rattus) and the more common the brown rat (Rattus norvegicus).  it will happily inhabit and breed in your home, so it’s important the problem isn’t ignored.

Professional rat control is the quickest way to solve rodent issue as will often sense when home made methods are  used.

rat control involves many important steps, they've got to be trapped and find any holes how they get in to your property to minimize the problem recurring.


The quickest method of trapping is to use the good old snap trap. We will bait the trap. Depending upon the species of rodent.

In most cases, we will set the traps in the attic space. 

After the traps have been set, we need to return and service the traps and remove the rodent. this process typically takes about three visits. When a rodent infestation already exists, some form of population reduction is typically necessary to help control the rodent population already inside the home. Many factors, especially placement, account for the overall success. Rats are very leery of anything new in their environment and will avoid a freshly placed trap so this process could take a few days or up to a few weeks. The technician will routinely check and promptly remove the rodents as they are trapped. By not relying on inherently hazardous poisons, we can make sure rodents are disposed of properly, and avoid any unpleasant odors.

Some are especially fond of electrical wiring and that can lead to real danger. this is why the rodent control  must not be left.
