Rats can build tunnels which can extend deep into the ground. Nests can be found indoors, in lofts or underneath the floor boards. These vermin can breed rapidly and can produce very large infestations, so is best to get rid of them as soon as possible as they can carry many diseases such as Salmonellosis and Weils disease.
Can find the smallest cracks in buildings and can always locate some food within the building. They also communicate the food to other ants which leads them in the building to feed. If you locate the nest outside this can be destroyed by pouring boiling water all over it.
