Rat Proofing


Proofing is the key to preventing future infestation and stemming an existing problem.

This usually is no more than plugging holes which allow access to the rats. This would usually be done after the initial survey and treatment program.

Often rat issues within the home stem from the drains/sewer system. We at Bovers are equipped with drain inspection equipment and have the expertise to locate any faults which may be allowing rats the exit the system.

Have I got rats in my house?

To confirm a rat problem, you should notice the following signs of around your house.

Rat Droppings

  • Fresh droppings indicate rats are present.
  • Rat droppings are usually around 12mm in length, commonly black in colour and tapered at one end.
  • The size of the droppings can help to understand the size of the rat, the number of rodents infesting your house and whether they are still around.

Rat Nest

Nests can be seen indoors and outdoors so remember to check lofts, garages, basements, sheds and the kitchen.

Normally seeking warm, well-hidden locations around the house usually close to a food source, rats build nests by shredding available materials such as newspapers, cardboard, loft insulation and other items.


You will need to be in detective mode and check for rat footprints – normally, they are seen on dusty surfaces. Look for four-toed front and five-toed back marks.


Rats are mainly nocturnal creatures, as such, they’re often heard gnawing during nighttime hours.
