Rats and Mice

How do I know if I have got mice or rats at my property?

Evidence of unseen rats and mice may include scratching and scurrying noises in the roof etc. and the presence of chewed food, paper and droppings.

Rat droppings are black torpedo shapes about 1 centimetre long, while mouse droppings are about 3 millimetres in size like small pieces of pencil lead.

As rodents, they have to keep gnawing to wear continually growing incisor teeth down. Electrical insulation, foam pipe insulation and plastic water pipes are ideal for the purpose, with often property or life threatening results.

The Council will provide a service for the eradication of rats and mice in domestic premises, both of which will be chargable.
