Once you have a colony of rats in close proximity it can be difficult to get rid of them. Rats are nocturnal, so there’s almost no chance you’ll spot them during the day time. Rats are also shy and wary creatures with great survival instincts. They’re said to be ‘neophobic’ which means that they don’t like new things – making it difficult to quickly tempt them into a trap, or get them to immediately take to rat bait.
If those factors didn’t make it difficult enough, rats eventually develop immunity to products that are used to bait and lure them. Products that were successful in the 1940s are no longer of much use. New products developed in the 1970s have proved relatively successful to-date however it appears that rats are beginning to develop a resistance to those too.
So how do you get rid of rats? Eradicating rats requires a multi-pronged approach. You’re likely to need the help of a qualified pest controller to locate the rats’ nest, establish how the rats are entering the area, and to lay baits safely and in the right places.
