Rat Catchers Caerphilly

Caerphilly Rat Catchers Contractors (CF83): Despite the fact that it isn't really a common problem in Caerphilly nowadays, folks do have troubles with rats occasionally. Seeing rats in your property or garden is not a pleasant thing to experience, and would be sufficient to give some people the shivers. Lone rats aren't likely to create much of a problem, although rats tend to reproduce rapidly and can cause issues as soon as their numbers rise.

There are actually two types of rat which you may encounter in Caerphilly, common (brown) rats and black rats. It is rather improbable that you will ever come across black rats, and if you have seen a rat fairly recently chances are it'll have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were at one time common and were responsible for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are relatively rare nowadays, but where they are found they've got good hearing, are amazing climbers, and can give birth to between twenty and one hundred baby rats in just one year.

The largest of the 2 rat species is the brown rat at about 9 inches, while the black only measures 5-7" long. Brown rats may cause problems as they must continually gnaw at things to prevent their teeth from growing too much. Timber is particularly prone to this gnawing.

Rats transmit disease, leave droppings, gnaw their way through insulation, wires, woodwork and pipes, and are typically problematic in homes and business premises throughout Caerphilly. Property owners should report sightings of rats to their relevant local authority. It is possible to report rat sightings on the .gov website online HERE.

You will on occasion identify the presence of rats not actually by physically seeing them, but by them announcing their existence in other ways. It is possible you may detect droppings in cupboards or on the floor, you could hear scratching coming from a floor, loft or wall, you may observe rat holes gnawed into skirtings or floorboards or you may uncover a rat's nest in some hidden location.

Unless you want to wait for the local council to take care of this problem you could also get in touch with local Caerphilly pest controller or rat catcher who'll be a specialist in the business of pest removal. There are not that many people these days who specialise just in rat catching, you are also able to give them a call if you've got a problem with moles digging up your lawn or even a wasps nest in your loft.

Rats - How to Spot Them

There are a number of ways that you can find out when you have rats. If you've got an inkling that there may be rats in your business or property you can watch out for rub marks on skirting boards and walls where greasy fur has left marks, keep your eyes open for droppings (faeces), they look similar to large grains of rice and are dark brown, be on the lookout for burrows or holes close to solid objects, listen out for scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, especially at night, pay attention to gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, especially in lofts, search for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas.


The one thing which rats love to do is burrow and dig, and the place where they most like to dig is beside solid structures and objects such as garages, garden shed bases, patios and walkways. Rats excavate substantial networks of burrows which provide food storage, shelter and nesting places. Watch out for holes with smooth sides, which may have been rubbed by the continuous coming and going of these busy little critters. If you discover holes but aren't certain if they are rats, they'll commonly be around 2-4 inches in diameter. An effective way to discover if rats are still in that specific burrow is to toss some debris into the burrow entrance and check if it has been cleared the next day.
