DOES DIY WORK FOR RATS?
We follow on from people that have tried DIY and it hasn't worked. One of the reasons is a lack of experience of the average punter. Without a trained eye they can not see the key areas that rats trust to place the controls. Secondly that rats are really smart and modify their approach for every house. Lastly the DIY controls are not very effective. The end result of these three factors is wasted money and no change to your rat issue.

"We had Godzilla sized rats thumping around in our ceiling at night. Aces were very prompt, informative, and managed to get control of the rats who had evidently taken up residence. They come highly recommended, I'm sure they will solve any pest problems with equal efficiency."
