Rat Control in Scunthorpe & North Lincolnshire
Seeing a rat in your home or commercial premises can be deeply distressing, and for good reason. Rats spread diseases to humans and pets, including Hantavirus, Salmonellosis, Leptospirosis and more.
Not only that, but these nocturnal rodents are most active at night and make a lot of noise while you’re trying to sleep. You’ll often hear them gnawing through wood and other materials, which can cause serious damage to your home in a short period of time.
Thankfully, Briarquest Pest Control has extensive experience dealing with rat problems across Scunthorpe, Doncaster, Hull and North East Lincolnshire. Our team are RSPH level 2 certified and has access to professional-grade products, which you can’t buy in shops.

Why It’s Important To Get Rid Of Rats Fast
If you find evidence of one rat, you might not think you have a rat problem or that it needs dealing with straight away. However, a rat infestation can cause serious problems within your home. Rats often carry Weil’s disease and other pathogens that can be a major threat to human health.
Additionally, rats chew almost constantly and can eat through wiring, pipework, plasterboard, doors and floorboards. They will search out human foods as well as shelter to build nests in, which often means they move quickly from a garden or outbuilding into your home.
Once they come indoors, rats will quickly make themselves at home. Rats will leave their waste, including droppings and urine, throughout your property and often leave greasy smudge marks on your walls.
To permanently remove rats, you need to hire expert pest controllers like Briarquest. Our team has the skills, experience and tools to identify rats and strategically place traps to ensure we catch them before they cause too much damage.
Commercial Rat Control
For businesses, rats can be incredibly distressing and difficult to deal with. Their presence can damage your stock, equipment and, most importantly, your reputation.
If a rat infestation is noticed and reported to the authorities, then you risk being shut down and even losing your right to operate until the pests have been removed.
That means you need to hire experts to control rats as soon as you see signs of an infestation. Briarquest provides a prompt service to commercial clients and will aim to conduct an initial assessment of the site as soon as possible. We aim to limit the use of chemical products to ensure a non-toxic environment for your business.
That’s why we offer commercial contracts to businesses across Scunthorpe, Grimsby, Hull, Doncaster and North Lincolnshire. Our team will visit your site throughout the year to check for signs of pests and provide preventative treatments to spread the cost of your commercial pest control.
Our Rat Removal Process
Removing rats effectively requires a site visit to assess the infestation and consider the best method of rat control.
Once we know what we’re dealing with and the size of the rat problem, our experts will consider how best to trap and remove rats as part of a treatment plan, depending on where the rats are and whether they are living in hard-to-access areas, such as cavity walls.
When choosing the right approach for your rat control, our technician will consider you, your pets, your livestock and surrounding wildlife. As a result, we’re able to offer non-toxic, humane pest control that will eliminate the rats for good.
