Professional Rat Removal Services

If you’re experiencing a rat infestation in your home or business, Forest Group can provide an effective and emergency rat removal service that you can rely on 24/7. Our rat exterminators use the latest techniques and methods to get rid of rats quickly and efficiently, as well as giving you advice on how to prevent future infestations. Rats can be difficult to get rid of, but our team has the experience and knowledge to handle any situation.

Signs Of A Rat Infestation

If you’re concerned that you may have a rat problem, there are some key signs to look out for. Rat droppings, footprints, and chew marks are all good indicators of an infestation. If you’re unsure, or want confirmation before taking any steps, reach out to Forest Group for assistance. We will be able to help assess the situation and recommend the best course of action.


When you are inspecting your home for signs of a rat infestation, be sure to look for grease and dirt smears near the skirting boards. Rat fur can carry a lot of dirt and grease, which will leave behind smears as the rats move around. These smears are a clear indicator of a rat problem, so be sure to take note of them if you spot them.


If you are experiencing a rat infestation, it is important to identify the droppings in order to determine the size of the rats. Rat droppings are typically 9-12mm in length and can be found in any area, but are often in the corners of rooms or in crevices between items.


As previously mentioned, rats are creatures of habit. They often follow the same routes and pathways when travelling. This can often mean that outdoors, a rat run can be identified by a strip of depressed grass. Indoors it is easier as often dusty places will have clear routes through them, for example.

Other Signs

If you have noticed any of the following indications of rats, it is important to contact a professional rat removal company as soon as possible: damage to wires or structural damage, evidence of gnawing, the smell of urine, hairs, footprints, or tail swipes. Rats can cause significant damage to your home and property and can also spread diseases, so it is important to take action as soon as possible.

Treatment And Post-Treatment

Rats are commonly treated through the use of poison or traps. All of our treatments follow the latest Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and British standards. To prevent rats from entering your home or business, entry and exit points to the building will be sealed. A cleaning regime should also be put into place to make sure that food is not left lying around. After the treatment, all bait, bait stations and rodent bodies will be removed from the site and disposed of safely.

The Dangers Of A Rat Infestation


The presence of rats can present a health risk to humans as they can carry a number of diseases. Disease transmission can occur through contact with their urine, faeces, and through ectoparasites that live in their fur. In order to minimise the risk of disease transmission, it is important to take measures to eradicate rat infestations.

Structural Damage

Rats can be a major nuisance in the home, as they tend to chew on a variety of objects. This includes electrical wires, which can cause fires, and lead pipes, which can result in leaks and monetary damage. Additionally, rats can create blockages in pipes after they die.

Physical Damage

When dealing with rats, it is important to be aware of their potential dangers. Rats can often be seen as a nuisance due to their propensity to invade human dwellings, but they can also inflict injuries when cornered or acting in defence.
