How to get rid of sewer rats

So How to get rid of sewer rats ? There is a persistent, if somewhat dubious, myth that you are never more than six feet away from a rat in an urban environment. While this is probably an exaggeration, rats are far more common than you might think. Just because you can’t see them, that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Rats will move into any property that provides them with food, water, and shelter, and they will take advantage of any potential entry route available to get inside. A rat infestation is a severe problem for any home or business, so dealing with them quickly and effectively is essential.

One of the many ways that rats can enter a property is through the sewer system. Drains and sewers provide the perfect environment for rats to nest and enable them to enter otherwise inaccessible properties. Sewers offer rats everything they need; shelter, warmth, access to food and water, its no wonder they love building their nests within sewage systems. 

Sewer rats can be tricky to deal with if they find their way into your home. When rats build their nests inside your property, you can hunt down their nest and destroy or remove it. You can also use traps and poisoned bait placed near the nest to take care of as many rodents as possible. But a different approach is needed to deal with sewer rats.

How to get rid of sewer rats

Prevention is the best cure here; you can discourage rats from entering your home in the first place by ensuring you don’t leave food out in the open. Make sure everything is stored in sealed containers where rats can’t get to it. Don’t pour toxic chemicals or poisons down your drains; otherwise, you will end up with dead, decaying rat carcasses in your pipes. Instead, contact a professional pest controller. They can use specialist equipment to remove the rodents and install barriers to prevent them from accessing your drains and home in the future.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
