Rat Catchers Billericay Essex CM11

There are 2 types of rat which you might come across in Billericay, common (brown) rats and black rats. Its rather unlikely that you'll ever come across black rats, and if you have spotted a rat fairly recently its likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were once common and were blamed for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are quite rare nowadays, but where they do exist they're superb climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and can produce between twenty and one hundred offspring in just one year.

The brown rat is usually bigger than the black rat weighing in at half a kilogram and reaching lengths of about nine inches. A great deal of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is because to keep their incisors from growing too long, they must continuously gnaw on things. Their gnawing is commonly targeting items made of wood.

Rats leave behind droppings, gnaw their way through woodwork, wires, pipes and insulation, transmit disease, and will generally cause a nuisance in businesses and households throughout Billericay. The local council should be informed when there are any repeated sightings of rats. It's also possible to report rat problems on the .gov web page HERE.

It's not purely by appearance that you will become aware of the existence of rats, their actions are sometimes enough to enlighten you.

Have You Got Rats?

If you've got an inkling you may have rats in your property or business, there are a variety of means by which it's possible to tell. You should check for gnawing in wires, cables and wood, particularly in lofts, listen out for scratching noises emanating from roofs and walls, in particular at night, watch for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, look out for burrows or holes near to solid surfaces, keep your eyes open for faeces, they are dark brown in colour and look similar to large grains of rice, search for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas.

Rat Burrows

Digging is a thing that rats really love to do and it is next to and beneath solid structures and objects such as patios, garages, shed bases and paths where they predominantly like to dig. Providing them with a nesting place, shelter and food storage, rat burrows are excavated into substantial networks which could even cause damage to buildings if they remain unchecked. The access points to rat burrows are usually worn smooth by continuous movement, so keep your eyes open for smooth sided holes at the side of solid surfaces. The entrances to burrows are usually 2" to 4" across. Throw some debris into the burrow entrance and look the next day to find out if it's been moved. This will tell you if the rats are still in situ.
