Rats can breed throughout the year but given ideal conditions they can produce between 600 – 700 offspring in their life. Rats are primarily nocturnal but may be active during daylight hours when the population is high. They will eat nearly any type of food such as cereal, grains, meats, fish and nuts. Food items from household rubbish offer a balanced diet and usually satisfies their moisture needs. Rats have poor eyesight and depend on hearing and their excellent sense of smell. Rats are more common during winter, and cooler weather generally and like to live near supplies of food and water.

Michael from Effective Pest Control came to us in Walkinstown to help get rid of the rodents that decided to move in unannounced. They proceeded to eat their way through our alarm cables and the plastic mains water pipe under the floor !!!!After already paying another well known pest control company who were only interested in laying bait and not addressing where the feckers were getting into our extension? Michael initiated a specialist company who with the aid of a smoke machine and cctv camera found an abandoned pipe left by our builder which was still connected to the main drain running under our extension .Whilst Michael charged us for his initial visit he met the drain company on site on a second visit and again a week later to follow up.Thanks to Effective Pest control we no longer have a problem .Many thanks Jason and Angela Hebert St Peters Rd Walkinstown
