Rat Catchers Clacton-on-Sea

Clacton-on-Sea Rat Catchers Contractors (CO15): While it's not all that commonplace these days, spotting rats in your garden or even inside your house in Clacton-on-Sea is not really a good thing to experience. Just one sighting of a rat might not be too much of a cause for concern, but, if you see the presence of rats more often or spot more than one rat you could soon be in trouble because they reproduce so quickly.

If you spot rats in Clacton-on-Sea, the likelihood is that they are going to be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), though there are in fact 2 sorts of rats at present living in the United Kingdom; black (ship) rats and brown (or common) rats. As you could be aware black rats were blamed for the Great Plague (17th C) during which period they were pretty common. Black rats are quite scarce nowadays and actually neither variety is a native of Great Britain, both originally from from Asia.

The longest of the two rat varieties is the brown rat at approximately 9 inches, whilst the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5" and 7". A lot of the destruction attributable to brown rats is down to the fact that to keep their incisors from growing too long, they must constantly gnaw stuff. Wooden items are particularly vulnerable to their gnawing.

Rats leave behind droppings, gnaw through pipes, insulation, wires and woodwork, spread disease, and generally cause problems in homes and business premises in and around Clacton-on-Sea. Any regular incidences of rats should always be reported to the local authority. Or post a report recording pest and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, that will be forwarded to the relevant local authority.

Pest Control in the Clacton-on-Sea Area

You will in some cases notice the existence of rats not by actually observing them, but by them indicating their existence by other means. It could be that you might come across a rat's nest hidden away somewhere, you might spot rat holes gnawed in skirtings or floorboards, you might hear scratching noises coming from a floor, loft or wall or you might notice droppings in cupboards or on floors.

If you're going to have this problem managed effectively you'll want to get an expert. You can either contact your local environmental health department or get hold of a specialist Clacton-on-Sea rat catcher or pest controller for yourself. Nowadays rat catchers usually come under the umbrella of pest control, and pest elimination specialists don't only remove rats but in addition bedbugs, wasps, mice, fleas, cockroaches, moles and all kinds of domestic and garden pests.

Checking for Rats: If you've got suspicions that you could have rats in your property or business, there are a few means by which you are able to tell. You can listen for continual scratching noises emanating from roofs and walls, in particular at night, pay attention to gnaw marks in cables, wires and wood, especially in attics, search for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, be on the lookout for tunnels or burrows near to solid objects, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, keep an eye out for droppings (faeces), they look much like large grains of rice and are dark brown.

Burrowing: A thing that all rats like to do is dig burrows, and the place that they predominantly prefer to dig is next to and beneath solid structures and objects like garage foundations, paths, patios and garden shed bases. Providing them with nesting, food storage and shelter, rat burrows are excavated into extensive systems which can even cause damage to buildings if allowed to continue unchecked. The access points to burrows are usually worn smooth by continuous comings and goings, so keep your eyes open for smooth sided holes beside solid structures. Should you discover holes but are not certain that they are made by rats, they'll commonly be two to four inches across. You should check if rats are present by partially filling up the burrow entrance to ascertain if they come back and remove it.
