Rat control and rat extermination
Rats are one of the most common pest complaints that we deal with. Fortunately, we have over 30 years of experience in dealing with them, so when you hire us to solve your rat problem, you can be assured that we’ll get the job done quickly and cleanly.
We have a number of different methods of getting rid of rats permanently, including traps and poisons, but we always evaluate each case on its own merit to see which would be the most effective.
If you suspect that you might need pest control for rats then speak to our expert team. We’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including bank holidays. We’re happy to do both domestic and commercial callouts, and we even have pest control maintenance contracts if pest control, particularly rats, is of paramount importance to your business.
Highly-effective rat pest control
When it comes to pest control, rats are easy for us to spot. Rats tend to leave a lot of droppings, teeth marks where they have gnawed through skirting boards, wires and plasterboard, and greasy rub marks on surfaces that they have travelled on.
The Acorn team are highly qualified, with accreditations for SafeContractor, CHAS, Construction Line, NPTA, and SSIP, so you know that our rat control services are professional and, more importantly, highly effective. We implement effective, reactive strategies in order to identify the problem and eradicate it quickly.

Where do rats live?
The most common type of rat that we encounter, brown rats, live on the ground and in burrows. They are usually spotted throughout buildings, in sewer systems, and outdoors, and their burrowing can cause extensive damage to sewers.
Black rats are less common in the North West and Yorkshire as they are mainly restricted to buildings around ports and ships. They are agile and are good climbers, nesting high up under roofs.
Rats can carry nasty diseases that are harmful to humans, so it’s essential that they are removed from your property as soon as possible. If you have a rat problem then don’t leave anything to chance – call out our expert team who can remove 100% of the problem and treat the area so that new rats don’t replace the ones that have been removed.
How can I prevent rodents?
The best way to stop rodent problems is by stopping their entrance into your home in the first place with some simple tips below:
- Store all food items in an airtight container and keep them away from walls.
- Keep all rubbish covered in bins with tight-fitting lids to avoid any odours that might be attracting pests.
- Keep your floor clean by sweeping up crumbs or spills immediately after they happen. This will reduce the smells that rats are attracted to
- Sprinkle cayenne pepper or chilli flakes outside around your windows, doors and cracks. These are known deterrents for rats making it hard for them to enter your property.
If these preventatives don’t help then you might need to book our rat pest control service. For a no-obligation quote, speak to our team today.
