Rat Catchers Bath

Bath Rat Catchers (BA1): Whilst it isn't so commonplace at present, observing rats in your home or garden in Bath is not really a pleasing thing to experience. Just one rat sighting should not be too much of an issue, however, if you witness the presence of rats more regularly or notice more than one rat you could soon be heading for trouble since they reproduce so rapidly.

If you see rats in Bath, the chances are that they'll be brown rats, though there are actually 2 breeds of rat currently found in Great Britain; black (ship) rats and brown (common) rats. As you may be aware black rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague (17th C) and at that time they were pretty widespread. Black rats are quite scarce now and actually neither breed is native to the UK, both arriving from Asia.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5" to 7" long, isn't as big as the brown, which grows to lengths of nearly 9" and weighs in at around half a kilogram. To stop their incisors from getting too long, brown rats need to keep chewing stuff, and that's why they're the cause of so much damage. Rats especially choose to gnaw on timber.

Rats gnaw their way through insulation, woodwork, pipes and wires, spread diseases, leave behind droppings, and are typically troublesome in homes and business premises in and around Bath. Property owners should always report incidences of rats to the local authorities. Or even report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, which will be passed onto the relevant local authority.
