Rats bring with them the threat of serious disease, namely Weil’s disease (leptospirosis) which is a bacterial disease spread through rat urine or other mucous membranes and can cause liver and kidney damage in humans.

Rats also carry diseases such as salmonella, contaminating food and water. The two main types of rat commonly found in the UK are the black rat and the brown rat. Signs that you may have rats in your building include:

  • Droppings
  • Rub marks
  • Footprints
  • Scratching noises
