There are actually 2 sorts of rat which you may spot in Banstead, common (brown) rats and black rats. It's fairly improbable that you'll ever see black rats, and if you have stumbled upon a rat fairly recently it's likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were blamed for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're pretty scarce nowadays, although where they are found they are superb climbers, have good hearing, and can give birth to between 20 and 100 offspring every 12 months.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5 to 7 inches, is smaller than the common brown rat, which grows to a length of up to about nine inches and weighs close to half a kilogram. Brown rats can cause problems as they need to continuously gnaw on stuff to stop their teeth from growing too much. Their attention is commonly focused on objects that's made out of timber.

Banstead Mole Catching: Whilst not such a common problem nowadays moles can also be tackled by rat catchers. Moles cause issues in a different way to rats and are not anywhere near so disliked. It's outside in the garden where you are likely to have troubles with moles, and lawns specifically are at risk. Evidence of their activity can be clearly spotted in the shape of scattered piles of earth on nicely manicured lawns. Trapping is by far the most humane and acceptable way to get rid of moles.

Do You Have Rats?: If you have a notion you might have rats in your business or property, there are a number of ways that you'll be able to tell. You can listen out for scratching noises coming from lofts and walls, especially at night, hunt for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, be on the lookout for burrows or tunnels next to solid objects, keep your eyes peeled for rat droppings, they are dark brown in colour and look like large grains of rice, check for gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, especially in attics.

Burrowing: Digging and burrowing is something that all rats like to do and it is at the side of solid objects or structures like terraces, pathways, garden sheds and garage foundations where they predominantly prefer to dig. Providing them with nesting places, shelter and food storage, burrows are excavated into substantial networks which may even cause damage if not nipped in the bud. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is a smooth sided hole next to a solid structure, where the comings and goings of hairy animals have rubbed and polished the entrance. The burrow entrances are usually two to four inches across. It's possible to find out if rats are still in situ by partially filling up the entrance to ascertain if they return and clear it.

Rat Sightings - Reporting: We briefly discussed this previously, so here I will go into it a bit more. Should you witness rats in a neighbours garden, in a public area or in your own garden it is generally a wise idea to report it to the local authorities. Occasionally local councils offer a cost-free service for rat problems but payment is usually required for most other infestations for instance bed bugs, cockroaches and wasps. It is also easy to report rat sightings through the Government (.gov) webpage which you'll find HERE. To have things sorted out swiftly book a rat catcher HERE.
