There are two kinds of rat which you might run into in Carlisle, common (brown) rats and black rats. It's pretty improbable that you'll ever see black rats, and if you've spotted a rat fairly recently it is likely to have been the more commonplace brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were once common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're quite rare nowadays, although where they are found they are exceptional climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can give birth to between twenty and one hundred offspring in a single year.

The largest of the two rat breeds is the brown at around 9 inches, whilst the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5" and 7". A lot of the damage caused by brown rats is down to the fact that to keep their teeth from getting too long, they've got to continuously gnaw on things. Wooden items are particularly susceptible to this interest.

Rat infestations lead to lots of different issues for business owners and householders throughout Carlisle, they spread diseases, gnaw through insulation, wires, pipes and woodwork, leave behind droppings, and contaminate foodstuffs. The local authorities should really be informed whenever rats are sighted. Or even click HERE to report pest and rat problems on the .gov dedicated webpage.

Carlisle Mole Catching: Whilst no longer such a common pest nowadays moles are occasionally handled by rat catchers. Moles can cause issues in different ways to rats and aren't detested anywhere near so much. It is out in the garden where you may have problems with moles, and lawns particularly are at risk of damage. The sight of heaps of earth in the middle of a nicely trimmed lawn are plain proof of this activity. The preferred and most humane solution to stop moles is by capturing with traps.

Signs of Rat Infestations: When you've got an idea that you could have rats in your business or property, there are several ways in which you're able to find out. You should listen out for constant scratching noises emanating from lofts and walls, particularly at nighttime, keep an eye out for faeces, they look similar to large grains of rice and are darkish brown, hunt for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, check for gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, especially in lofts, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, look out for holes or burrows close to solid objects.

Burrowing: Digging and burrowing is something that all rats really like to do and it is next to and under solid structures and objects such as garage foundations, patios, shed bases and walkways where they particularly like to dig. They build extensive systems of burrows that are useful for food storage, a nesting place and shelter. A sure indication of a rat burrow is often a hole with smooth sides adjacent to a solid surface, where the ins and outs of furry animals have rubbed and polished the burrow entrance. The burrow entrances are generally around 2" to 4" across. An effective way to ascertain if rats are still in the burrow is to chuck a bit of debris into the entrance hole and check if it's been removed the next day.
