Rat Control Farming Note

Rats carry a large number of diseases and parasites which can be harmful to both humans and animals. This, alongside the damage they cause, makes them a major farm pest. A better understanding of how rats behave and potential control options will make their control more effective.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Why are rats a problem?
  • How to prevent infestations before they become a problem
  • Control techniques
  • HSE and COSHH
  • An additional 'rat bait recording sheet'

Issued January 2010.
