How to protect your property from rat infestations



Are you plagued by a persistent rat problem that just won't go away? Or maybe you’ve heard one of the countless stories of people up and down the country whose properties have been invaded by rats? If so, you're not alone.


Rats have become a formidable challenge in our modern urban habitat, causing extensive damage to properties and posing serious health risks. ­­­In this blog, we'll explore the alarming issues associated with rat infestations and how by installing a RatGate you can put an end to your rat woes once and for all.


The Rat Infestation Challenge


With an estimated 10 million brown rats in the UK alone, these pesky rodents have become a widespread issue for property owners. They have adapted to our surroundings and can infiltrate properties through various means, such as through broken pipes or poorly sealed-off disused pipes. They can even do the unthinkable - swim up through your toilet! And when they do find their way inside properties, they can be notoriously difficult to remove.


Rats have a natural instinct to gnaw, and can cause serious structural damage to your property once inside. Did you know they can easily chew through wood, plastic, wiring, and even bricks and mortar?


But it's not just structural damage that's problematic; rats are known carriers of diseases that can affect humans and therefore pose a serious health risk. Rats produce up to 40 droppings a day and frequently mark their territory with urine, turning infested property into breeding grounds for illness. One significant concern is Weil's disease, a bacterial infection transmitted by rats, which can lead to severe health complications.


Introducing the RatGate


Now, here's the good news: there's a humane, poison free, and environmentally friendly solution to keeping rats out of your property – the RatGate. This innovative device is designed to prevent rats from entering or re-entering your home through the sewer system, whilst still allowing water and waste to run freely through it.


Let's take a closer look at the RatGate:


1. It has a Flow-Controlled Design

The RatGate is designed to open in the direction of water or waste flow. This ensures that water and waste can pass effortlessly through the device whilst preventing rats from pushing against it and gaining access to your property.


2. It’s Patented Liftable Flap Mechanism Keeps your Drain Accessible

One of the unique features of the RatGate is its patented liftable flap mechanism. The RatGate is the only product on the market that allows you to open the flap from the top of the manhole, a crucial feature for any rodding or camera investigations that may be needed in the future. This innovative feature means that there is no need to remove the RatGate from the drain when work is being undertaken.


3. It is Made from High-Grade Stainless Steel

The RatGate is constructed using high-grade laser-cut stainless steel, ensuring durability and longevity. Its robust construction guarantees it can withstand the test of time and deter even the most determined rats.


4. It is Low-Maintenance

Once the RatGate is in place, you can rest easy knowing that periodic checks by yourself are all that's needed to ensure the RatGate continues to protect your property effectively.


5. It’s Available in 3 Sizes

To meet the diverse requirements of both domestic and commercial properties, the RatGate is available in three different sizes: 4-inch (110mm), 6-inch (160mm), and 9-inch (225mm). This flexibility allows you to choose the perfect fit for your specific needs.


Rats may be persistent pests, but by installing a RatGate you can finally gain the upper hand in the battle against these troublesome invaders. Don't wait until the next rat finds its way into your property; take action today to protect your property and your peace of mind with this innovative and humane solution.
