Rat Catchers Cardiff

Cardiff Rat Catchers Contractors (CF1): Whilst it isn't such a frequent occurrence in Cardiff nowadays, home owners do still have trouble with rats once in a while. Seeing rats in your property or garden is not a great experience, and will be sufficient to cause some homeowners the shivers. Individual rats are unlikely to create that much of a problem, although rats reproduce rapidly and may cause problems as soon as they grow in numbers.

If you discover rats in Cardiff, the probabilities are that they will be brown rats, though there are in fact 2 types of rat currently found in the British Isles; brown (common rats) and black (ship). As you might be aware ship rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague of the 17th Century during which period they were extremely widespread. Black rats are relatively rare nowadays and in fact neither breed is native to the British Isles, both of them coming from Asia.

The longest of the 2 rats is the brown at approximately nine inches, while the black only measures 5" to 7" long. To wear down their continuously growing incisors, common brown rats must keep on gnawing at things, which is the reason they cause such a lot of damage and destruction. Rats particularly like to gnaw at woodwork.

Rats gnaw their way through wires, pipes, woodwork and insulation, leave droppings, spread disease, and are typically troublesome in homes and businesses throughout Cardiff. Homeowners should report sightings of rats to the local authorities. Or even go HERE to report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website.

You'll in some cases become aware of the existence of rats not by actually physically seeing them, but by their indicating their existence by other means. Perhaps you might encounter holes gnawed into skirtings or floorboards, you might hear noises coming from a loft, floor or wall, you may find droppings in cupboards or on floor surfaces or you might find a rat's nest in some hidden location.

To address this situation there are two or three approaches you might take. You could put poison or traps down yourself, you can track down a rat catcher or you could get in touch with the local Cardiff authority or council. Long ago, rat catchers were exactly that, but today they're known as pest controllers and won't solely be happy to help you sort out rat problems but also removing wasps, ants, cockroaches, mice, moles and much more.

Rats - How to Spot Them: When you've got an idea you may have rats in your business or property, there are various ways in which you're able to tell. You should watch out for rub marks on skirtings and walls where greasy fur has left marks, keep an eye out for faeces (droppings), they look much like large grains of rice and are darkish brown, look out for holes or burrows alongside solid objects, pay attention to gnawing in cables, wires and wood, particularly in attics, try to find signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, listen out for scratching noises coming from walls and lofts, particularly at night.

Burrows: Something that rats love to do is dig and burrow, and their favourite place to do it is adjacent to solid structures and objects such as patios, paths, garden shed bases and garage foundations. They build extensive networks of burrows that provide food storage, nesting and shelter. The entrances to rat burrows are normally worn smooth by continuous motion, so look out for holes with smooth sides close to solid surfaces. Usually approximately 2" to 4" across, entrances to burrows are normally fairly easy to recognize. A simple way to find out if rats currently using the burrow is to throw some stuff into the burrow and check if it has been cleared away the next day.

Reporting Rat Sightings

Let's go into a little more detail now, even though this topic was mentioned previously.
