Rats can cause damage to your property by gnawing through electrical wiring, packaged goods, plastic, and even structures. The insurance sector has estimated that rodent damage to wiring is responsible for 25% of all electrical fires in buildings.

For businesses, the risk is even greater.  Not only is property damage an issue, but a rodent infestation can ruin your reputation among customers and endanger the health of your employees.  If customers spot rat droppings or other evidence of rodent infestation in the premises you manage, they are unlikely to want to do business with you.


Rats will also contaminate food and spread extremely harmful diseases including Leptospirosis or Weil’s disease, Salmonella, Listeria, Toxoplasma gondii and Hantavirus.

Rats are highly mobile and will breed rapidly, and it is this combination that can made rat control a difficult task for the untrained person. The most effective way to get rid of rats is by using a professional pest control contractor, like Abate. Having provided specialist rat and rodent control services for 20 years, we are your local experts, and can identify and eliminate your rodent infestation quickly and efficiently.  Our technicians have been trained to the highest industry standards, and we abide by the British Pest Control Association’s strict codes of practice. 

The Law: Property owners have a legal obligation under the Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 to keep premises rodent free, or, if rodents pose a threat to health or property, to report infestations to the local authority.
