Rat Catchers Arnold

Arnold Rat Catchers Contractors (NG5): Seeing rats in your home or garden tends to be quite a shocking experience to go through although it is not such a regular occurrence in Arnold in recent times, its definitely something that happens every once in awhile. Rats breed fairly quickly and can cause issues, especially when their numbers spiral out of control. Just one sighting of a solitary rat may not be much of a problem, but if you're noticing them regularly make sure you find a solution.

While neither of the 2 rat species currently living in the United Kingdom are native to these shores, they have clearly become firmly established. The brown rat is particularly common (hence its name) while the black rat is not so much so these days. Both breeds originated in Asia and got to the British Isles on ships.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches long, is a bit smaller than the brown rat, which reaches a length of nearly 9" and weighs in at close to half a kilo. To wear down their continually growing teeth, brown rats need to keep gnawing at things, which is the reason they cause such a lot of damage and destruction. Their interest is commonly concentrated on things made of timber.

Rats gnaw their way through wires, pipes, insulation and woodwork, transmit disease, leave behind droppings, and basically cause a nuisance in homes and businesses in and around Arnold. Householders should always report any sightings of rats to the local authority. Or otherwise report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, which should be forwarded to the relevant local authority.

Pest Control Arnold

You do not necessarily need to witness rats to know of that they are there, since there are many signs that can warn you of their activity. Its possible you might observe holes gnawed into skirtings or floorboards, you may find droppings in cupboards or on the floor, you may hear scratching noises coming from a loft, wall or floor or you could come upon a rat's nest in some hidden location.

If you don't want to wait around for the local environmental health authority to solve this rat infestation you can also call in local Arnold pest controller or rat catcher who will be experienced in the field of pest removal. These days rat catchers commonly come under the category of pest management, and pest control specialists not only remove rats but in addition mice, wasps, bedbugs, moles, fleas, cockroaches and all kinds of domestic and garden pests.

Have You Got Rats?: If you have suspicions that you might have rats in your business or home, there are a few ways that it's possible to find out. You could keep your eyes open for droppings (faeces), they're darkish brown and look similar to large grains of rice, look out for tunnels or burrows alongside solid objects, watch out for rub marks on walls and skirtings where greasy fur has left marks, check for gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, especially in lofts, listen out for constant scratching noises coming from walls and lofts, in particular at night, hunt for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas.

Burrows: One thing which rats like to do is burrow, and their favoured area to do it is at the side of solid objects or structures such as walkways, shed bases, garages and patios. Rats excavate extensive networks of burrows that are useful for shelter, a nesting place and food storage. A guaranteed indication of a rat burrow is a smooth sided hole next to a solid structure, where the comings and goings of hairy bodies have polished and rubbed the entrance. The entrance holes to rat burrows are typically 2" to 4" across. You can check if rats are still living there by partially blocking up the entrance hole to see if they return and clear it.

Reporting Rats and Pests: We briefly outlined this subject previously, so here I'll go into it a bit more. It is always best to report it to the local council if you notice rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public place. Some local councils will deal with rats at no cost, but when you have other pests for example wasps, bed bugs and cockroaches they'll normally require payment. Sightings of rats may also be reported using the .gov website HERE. To have the problem taken care of promptly contact a rat catcher HERE.
