The Rat Problem in London

Rats are a major pest issue across the UK, particularly in densely-populated London. These adaptable rodents can breed rapidly, with females producing large litters up to 5 times a year. They spread dangerous diseases through their urine and droppings and can contaminate food preparation areas in restaurants, cafes, and other venues.

Their strong teeth allow rats to gnaw through wood, bricks, wiring, and even metals as they construct nests and access new areas. Such destructive behaviour can cause considerable property damage if infestations go unchecked. Rats are also noisy nocturnal creatures that can disturb operations and customers.

With abundant food waste providing easy scavenging, London’s density makes it primed for large-scale rat infestations. Letting rats invade and persist on your business premises poses significant health, safety, and financial risks.

What Happens When We Attend Your Property?

We take a thorough, multi-step approach to professionally remove rats and prevent future infestations. First, our BPCA-certified technicians will conduct an on-site inspection, using their extensive training to identify all rat access points, nesting areas, food sources, and other relevant factors.

Next, we develop a tailored treatment plan that combines proven humane trapping methods to capture and remove active rats, sealing up any entryways rats use with rodent-proof materials to exclude them. We also strategically use pesticides in external bait stations to eliminate remaining individuals.

With rats removed, we fully clean and sanitise affected areas and safely dispose of pests off-site, leaving no trace behind. Our focus is on long-term prevention through the exclusion and removal of elements that attract rats, giving you an environment inhospitable to future infestations.

What Happens if I Neglect a Rat Problem?

Finding signs of a rat infestation in your business and deciding to simply monitor the situation or hope it resolves itself carries immense risks. Rats are a species known for their reproduction in large numbers and their ability to spread disease. Leaving just a few rats on your property for an extended period allows their population to rapidly multiply into the hundreds, making the problem exponentially worse.


Rats contaminate surfaces and food supplies with their urine and droppings, which can lead to dangerous bacterial infections in humans if left unchecked. The structural damage from their gnawing and nesting behaviours will escalate over time as well. Facilities may fail health inspections, necessitating closure until expensive remediation is done.


Your reputation with customers will quickly deteriorate if rats make an appearance onsite. The costs of repairing the substantial damage a neglected rat infestation causes make preventative treatment the wise financial decision, not to mention the benefits for safety and operations.
