Complete Pest Control provide a professional rat extermination & rat control service for business customers & individuals alike. The two major species of rats you will encounter in the UK are:-

Brown Rats

Are also known as Norwegian Rats, Sewer Rats and Common Rats they are by far the most prevalent species of rat found in the UK, and the second most common mammal found on earth after humans. The population of rats in the UK has been steadily increasing and it is estimated that there is 1.3 rats per human currently inhabiting our shores.

A large brown rat can be as long as 20 inches long including its tail and weigh as much as 900 grammes.

Black Rats

Are also known as Ship Rats, Roof Rats and House Rats, the black rat is a less common species than the brown rat and usually only found in port areas.

Disease & Damage

Rats are known carriers of a wide range of serious diseases transmittable to humans, these include Weil's disease, rat bite fever, cryptosporidiosis, viral hemorrhagic fever, Q fever and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. They also infest and ruin foodstuffs and cause serious structural damage to buildings, pipework and wiring systems by their constant gnawing. Rats gnawing electrical wires is a common cause of fires.
