If you discover rats in Cheshunt, the likelihood is that they are going to be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), even though there are actually 2 breeds of rats currently found in the British Isles; black (ship) rats and brown (common) rats. As you might be aware black rats were responsible for the Great Plague of the 17th Century during which period they were very common. Black rats are relatively rare now but in fact neither species is native to the British Isles, both of them hailing from from Asia.

The biggest of the 2 rats is the brown rat at approximately 9", while the black only grows to between 5 and 7 inches. A great deal of the damage attributable to brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their incisor teeth from getting too much, they've got to continuously gnaw on stuff. Timber is especially prone to this gnawing.

Rat infestations will cause lots of different problems for business owners and householders in Cheshunt, they spread disease, gnaw through woodwork, insulation, pipes and wires, leave behind droppings, and contaminate foodstuffs.

You'll occasionally identify the existence of rats not in fact by observing them, but by their announcing their presence by other means. It could be that you could come across holes gnawed into skirting boards or floorboards, you might find droppings in cupboards or on the floor, you might hear scratching coming from a loft, floor or wall or you may come upon a rat's nest in some out of the way location.

If you're going to have this issue tackled effectively you'll want to contact a specialist. You could either get in touch with the local council or bring in a professional Cheshunt rat catcher or pest controller yourself. There aren't so many people these days who only specialize in issues with rats, you can also bring them in if you have moles causing damage or maybe a wasps nest in your loft area.

Have You Got Rats?

There are various ways that you can find out when you have rats. If you've got your suspicions that there may be rats in your business or property you should watch out for rub marks on skirting boards and walls where greasy fur has left marks, hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, listen out for continual scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, especially during the night, be on the lookout for burrows or tunnels close to solid surfaces, pay attention to gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, particularly in lofts, keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they look similar to large grains of rice and are darkish brown.


Digging is something that all rats really love to do and it's next to and beneath solid structures and objects such as shed bases, paths, garages and patios that they predominantly prefer to dig. Providing them with food storage, shelter and nesting places, rat burrows are dug into substantial systems which could even cause damage if something isn't done. The access points to burrows are normally worn smooth by the endless motion, so look out for holes with smooth sides beside solid surfaces. The burrow entrances are normally about two to four inches across. A simple way to discover if rats still live in the burrow is to toss some stuff into the burrow and see whether it's been cleared the next day.

Problems With Mice

Mice are often just as much of a concern as rats, in particular when they find their way inside your property. Mice, just like rats, breed quickly, gnaw at stuff, leave droppings and contaminate food.
