How to kill rats in the loft?

So How to kill rats in the loft? After invading people’s homes, rats love to set up shop in lofts and attics. Lofts provide the perfect environment for rats to build their nests. They are dark and sheltered; most people only venture into their lofts occasionally, so rats are unlikely to be disturbed and can remain unnoticed for as long as possible. Lofts are also warm and insulated. In fact, the insulation used in lofts and attics is prized among rats for building their nests. By building their nests in the loft, they gain access to a virtually limitless supply. Finally, nesting in the attic ensures easy access to food from the people living below.

If you suspect you have rats living in your attic or you have already confirmed the presence of an infestation, you should work to take care of the problem as quickly as possible. The longer you leave rats to settle in and reproduce, the more difficult it will be to get rid of them. 

The most common methods for dealing with rodent problems are traps and bait. You can buy lethal or humane traps, depending on your personal preference. Placing these traps around your attic will bring the number of rats down and might be enough to eliminate a relatively small infestation without further intervention. Make sure to check them regularly after you set them and remove any rats they have ensnared.

Poisoned bait can also wipe out a rodent infestation relatively quickly, but you won’t have any control over where the poisoned rats die. A stray rat carcass behind your walls or hidden out of sight amongst the clutter in your loft will soon start to decay and give off an awful stench.

The most reliable way of getting rid of a rat infestation in your attic is to call in a professional pest controller. They are more expensive than off-the-shelf solutions but come with the guarantee of success.

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.
