Sussex Rat Control

At DCM Pest Control, we use two methods of catching rats. The more common method is baiting. We use bromadiolone and brodifacoum based poisons which act as an anticoagulant. Rats are what we call ‘neophobic’, which means they are weary of new objects.

For this reason it will take up to a week for the pests to feed on the bait. Rats will need to feed on the poison several times before consuming a lethal dose. This method is chosen as it ensures the rats do not become suspicious of the bait and so the entire colony of rats can be dispatched.

We also use mk 4 fenn traps in tunnels and snap break back traps when necessary.

Signs of Rats

  • Droppings & Urine
  • Gnawing marks
  • Noises at night in wall cavity or loft
  • Rat burrows are often found in the garden and under sheds.

The Brown Rat (Common Rat)

  • Rats have between 3-6 litters per year
  • Each litter contains between 8-10 rats
  • Rats have ‘neophobia’ which means they have a fear of any new objects including traps and bait.
