Why do I have rats?

There are many reasons why you may have rats in your home or garden. They are mainly looking for food, water and warmth, and if they can find an access point into your home, then this will provide them with all three of these. Rats can also be attracted to your garden if you have a bird feeder or throw food out for other animals.

If you have a compost heap this can be a perfect nesting place for rats and they can gain access by digging underneath. Rubbish bags are also a big attraction for rats, and they will rip through bags to get to any food remains.

So it's a good idea to  ensure that there are no possible access points around your home - gaps under doors, holes around waste pipes, defective pointing and holes in air bricks, and to make sure that all food is appropriately stored, and all waste-food is in sealed containers.
