Rats in the Loft

Rats in the Loft – scratching noise at night

Have you ever heard scratching sounds in your roofspace at night? It could well be rats in your loft.

During the winter months as the weather goes cold, rats look for ways to get inside properties for warmth and shelter. Finding their way in through cavities and small holes in brickwork, they reach the loft and settle where there is plenty of cosy insulation to use as nesting material, mainly moving around at night while the rest of the house is quiet.

Rodents in the roof space pose a particularly dangerous hazard. Rats breed fast quickly, and aside from the health risk with the serious diseases they carry, there is another danger which makes it very important to contact an expert when you suspect you might have an infestation.

Rats in loft

Rats can gnaw their way though most things in your roofspace, including cables for the house electrical wiring. When these are chewed it can create a fire hazard.

If you decide to inspect suspected rats in your loft yourself when you suspect there are rats, take care. Rats can carry life threatening diseases. The usual signs you have an infestation are droppings and the smell of urine.

Abate Pest Control are trained experts at dealing with rats in your roofspace and can usually visit to inspect your property the same day. Please give me a call on 07940 062670
