It isn’t just water on the rise: rat population is booming!
Procter Pest-Stop helps with infestation

With some areas across the UK having as much as a month’s rainfall in 24

is also on the rise.

In the recent humid weather and high water levels, people in the West Country
in particular have reported seeing as many as 600 rats within 20 feet of their

Pest control experts, Procter Pest-Stop know that rats can be a serious problem.

The high number of new developments on floodplains doesn’t help with this
situation. With water not draining away as quickly and naturally as it should,
the wet conditions create the perfect habitat for rats to breed and survive.

Surveys have proven that the rat population in this country has increased by more
than 52% in a four-year period. Today there are more rats than humans in the UK.

Rats, like mice, can be a serious risk to health due to the various diseases they
carry, including salmonella. They can also cause structural damage to properties.
