Signs of rats

Rodents are most active during the night therefore it is often easier to spot the signs of a rodent infestation than the actual rodent.

  • Droppings – droppings are dark-brown in a tapered, spindle shape – like a grain of rice.
  • Rub marksgrease and dirt on their bodies leaves smudges on surfaces.
  • Scratching noises – they are agile climbers and often found in lofts so you might hear scratching noises at night.
  • Holes they are well known for digging extensive burrow systems for shelter, food storage and nesting.
  • Nests – they will shred available materials such as loft insulation, cardboard and other soft items to make nests.
  • Footprints – they leave foot and tail marks in dusty, less-used areas of rooms and buildings.

Where are the rats hiding?

Winter rodents love to take refuge in and around your warm home. Got rats living in your roof?

As there’s no food or water in your roof, there’s only one reason they’re up there. It’s a nice warm, dry, predator-free place for a nest.

Rats might chew pipes and wires (and pretty much anything) but it’s not because they’re looking for water. It’s natural behaviour. Rodents’ teeth grow continuously, and they need to constantly chew to keep them at a manageable length.

Stop rats from damaging your electrical wiring, water pipes and insulation. For expert pest control for rats and mice ….

Proven pest control for rats

The most successful way to get rid of rats is a baiting strategy. When set up correctly, they overcome all the natural rodent behaviours which is why they are more successful than other rat and mouse control methods.

Our pest control technician will complete a thorough inspection of your home, looking for potential access points, evidence of rodent activity and food sources that attract rats and mice.

Baits will be secured in areas where there is evidence of activity. Baits are secured using wire and/or in lockable bait stations if there are children or pets around. Secure bait stations also mean we can monitor the level of rodent activity or make a return visit if required.

Preparation & Aftercare

No preparation or aftercare is required for rodent treatments.


We make the security of our bait placements a high priority. If children or pets have potential access the bait, we will secure it in a high-quality lockable bait station. If bait is placed in inaccessible areas, we will wire it in place to ensure that rodents can’t drag it to new locations.

All bait we use contains Bitrex™. This makes the bait very bitter to the taste, discouraging eating.

If bait is accidentally consumed, an injection of Vitamin K1 will overcome any poisoning effects. The bait is not fast acting, you will have days rather than hours to react to any bait accidentally consumed.


It’s always good to take someone else’s word for it!  Read what our customers have said about us following a successful pest removal. We can also arrange for you to speak directly to someone who has used our services, as we appreciate that you need to be absolutely certain about how our pest control works before you ask us into your home.

So this is my second time using Bug King, I had used them last year, since then we have bought a new home and the previous owners had a dog so naturally how new home had fleas which was biting my young children at night. Just like my 5 star experience before we go the same 5 star treatment second time around. Mo was once again earlier than expected which was great he did what he had to and went over and beyond what we expected. Yvette in the office was a breeze to work with. My kids have not been bitten since so I am one happy mum with happy kids! I didn't expect anything less from Bug King and as long as the awesome service doesn't change I will always be a loyal customer if I do anything done at my house they will always be my first point of contact! Thanks again Mo and Yvette best in business!

The previous tenants had 3 pets who clearly had thousands of their own pets! After 9 flea bombs, we admitted defeat and I called Mark who was able to accommodate us the next day which was amazing. He explained the flea life cycle and why the bombs weren't working, and why his solution would. Half an hour later the house was treated, and so far so good! I definitely recommend Bug King for a top notch, professional service.
