Trusted environmentally-friendly experts in Pest Control for Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.
Rats are persistent rodents who will gnaw away at your premises to gain entry, when they can quickly spread disease and illness.
It’s said that you are never more than 20 feet from a rat – you don’t want that 20 feet to be somewhere in your home or business!
In fact, in more urban areas like Plymouth and Exeter with a greater population, the chances are that you are even closer to rats.
Unfortunately, for homes and businesses, the presence of rats is a big issue and one that needs to be dealt with immediately. Not only are rats scary to some, they also carry diseases and can cause damage to your property by chewing through things – electric cables, pipes, eaves and insulation.
For businesses, they carry even greater threats to your livelihood. Prevention is certainly better than cure in all instances of pest control and minimising the risk of infestation through proper Plymouth rat-proofing is certainly the best course of action.
Whether it is your home or your business, exercising good hygiene and assessing possible access points should be priority – and Falcon Environmental Services is here to help.

Rats in a commercial premises can have devastating consequences for the reputation of a business and, as such, they need to be dealt with immediately. You need to remove the source and future proof the premises against future incidents.
In fact, even if you don’t have, or have never had, a rat issue at your business, that’s not to say you won’t suffer one in the future. It only takes the business next door to attract rat or mouse and you could be next.
Falcon Environmental Services highly recommends a rodent survey to ensure effective Plymouth rat proofing and make sure that there are no obvious access points for these wily creatures to enter your building. In addition to this, there are a number of effective Plymouth rat-proofing measures that you can take to minimise the risk:
If you think you have a rat problem already, then it is vital that you get it seen to straight away. The moment you suspect that you might have rats at your home or business, you must call in the experts.
Left to their own devices, rats will happily make their home in your Plymouth or Exeter property and before long it won’t just be one rat you have to deal with. Not only will they breed but they will start to infest other areas.
If they are able to roam around the home they can transfer diseases through their urine and droppings on to kitchen surfaces and other areas. In addition to this there is the risk of fire from chewing through electrical wires and cables.
Noises in the night are a good indication that you have a rodent problem. Sightings are a more obvious sign. It may not be rats – it could be mice or birds that you can hear.
