Rat Catchers Bradford

Bradford Rat Catchers Contractors (BD1): Even though it's not all that commonplace these days, observing rats in your home or garden in Bradford is not a great thing to go through. One sighting of a rat shouldn't be that much of an issue, nevertheless, if you witness the presence of rats more often or notice more than one rat you may be in trouble because they breed so fast.

Rat Catchers Bradford BD1

There are 2 kinds of rat that you may come across in Bradford, black rats and brown (or common) rats. It's rather improbable that you will ever come across a black rat, and if you've encountered a rat just recently its likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were blamed for the Great Plague, they are quite rare now, but when they are seen they are exceptional climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and can give birth to between 20 and 100 baby rats each year.

The black rat at 5-7 inches, is a bit smaller than the common brown rat, which reaches a length of almost 9" and weighs in at around half a kilogram. To wear down their constantly growing teeth, common brown rats have to keep on gnawing at stuff, and that's why they're responsible for so much damage. Timber is especially prone to their attention.

Rats leave behind droppings, gnaw through woodwork, insulation, wires and pipes, transmit disease, and are typically problematic in businesses and homes in Bradford. Any sightings of rats need to be reported to the local council. Or otherwise click HERE to report sightings of rats and pests on the .gov website online.

Bradford Pest Control

It isn't always by sight alone that you'll become aware of the existence of rats, their habits are sometimes quite enough to enlighten you. Perhaps you could encounter rat holes gnawed in skirting boards or floorboards, you may stumble upon a rat's nest in some out of the way location, you may find droppings on floor surfaces or in cupboards or you could hear noises coming from a wall, loft or floor.

If you're going to have this situation remedied correctly it is advisable to bring in a professional. You can get in contact with the local council or retain the services of a specialist Bradford pest controller or rat catcher yourself. These days rat catchers usually come under the umbrella of pest management, and pest control experts not only control rats but also wasps, moles, cockroaches, fleas, mice, bedbugs and many more types of garden and domestic pests.

Signs of Rats: There are a few ways that you can tell if you've got rats. If you've got your suspicions that there might be rats in your business or home you could keep an eye out for faeces (droppings), they're dark brown in colour and look similar to large grains of rice, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirting boards, hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, pay attention to gnawing in wires, cables and wood, especially in lofts, listen for scratching noises emanating from roofs and walls, especially at nighttime, look out for tunnels or burrows next to solid objects.

Rat Burrows: If you've got rats appearing in the garden, the probabilities are that there'll be a burrow somewhere. Rats like to dig burrows and they normally excavate them near to solid objects or structures such as pathways, garages, garden shed bases and terraces. These are the best places to check if you believe there might be rats in the area. These are often not straightforward holes, but rather extensive systems of burrows, intended to provide shelter, a nesting place and food storage. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is often a hole with smooth sides next to a solid structure, where the coming and going of furry creatures have rubbed and polished the entrance hole. The entrances to burrows are generally around 2-4 inches in diameter. Toss some stuff into the entrance and check the following day to see if it has been cleared. This can show if rats are still living there.

Reporting Rats

We are going to go into it a bit more now, though this subject was talked about previously. The local authority Environmental Health Department is where you should report it if you witness rats in a neighbours garden, in your own garden or in a public area. In the case of rats this may at times be a cost-free service, while you'll often be required to pay for other pest infestations for example wasps, cockroaches and bed bugs. You can check out the Government (.gov) website HERE to report rat sightings. You can obviously organize a local rat catcher to come over and handle the problem by going HERE.
