Did you know that rat and mice infestations are on the increase? In fact, we’ve seen a 118% increase in rat-related search enquiries to our website, year-on-year over the past few months. With more of us cooking at home due to lockdown, alongside less frequent bin collections, it is perhaps no surprise.
Luckily, there are things you can do to prevent the issue in your home, from making sure your bin lids are sealed, to sealing any leftover food in a plastic bag or compostable liner before you throw it out. It also pays to be aware of the signs, such as scratches to your floors and skirting boards, and gnawed cables.
