Had a weird job this morning. Customer is bothered by some kind of rodent -
heard scratching under the dining room floor & also in the loft conversion.
Been going on for years off & on. Stops for a while then starts again.
Poison has been put down in the loft & dead rats found.
The council rat expert reckoned they were getting into the (insulated)
cavity wall space & climbing up all the way into the loft. Well maintained
end of terrace (four houses) in a nice area, other three neighbours nice,
clean respectable people. No squats, rubbish etc.
Guy employed me to lift some boards in the dining room & see if there was
any way they were getting in.
No sign under the floor of anything but loads of dust & a 1939 newspaper.
No droppings, no sign of any dust disturbance, plenty of undisturbed
Can a rat really climb up two storeys through cavity wall insulation to
reach the loft?
Why would a rat want to do so? I guess its warm but no food source up
