Rat Catchers Cumbernauld

Cumbernauld Rat Catchers Contractors (G67): Even while it's not really a common problem in Cumbernauld nowadays, people still have issues with rats occasionally. Seeing a rat in your home or garden isn't a pleasant thing to experience, and will be enough to cause some homeowners nightmares. Individual rats shouldn't create very much of a problem, however rats tend to breed rapidly and can start to cause problems when their numbers rise.

There are two sorts of rat that you may encounter in Cumbernauld, common (brown) rats and black rats. It's pretty improbable that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you've stumbled upon a rat fairly recently the chances are it'll have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were once common and were blamed for the Great Plague, they are pretty rare now, though when they are found they're superb climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and can give birth to between twenty and one hundred baby rats every 12 months.

The black rat at 5" to 7" long, isn't as large as the brown rat, which attains lengths of up to about nine inches and weighs around 500g. The majority of the damage attributable to brown rats is due to the fact that to prevent their incisors from getting too long, they have to continuously chew on stuff. Wood is particularly susceptible to this gnawing.

Rats spread disease, leave behind droppings, gnaw through pipes, insulation, woodwork and wires, and are typically problematic in homes and business premises throughout Cumbernauld. Home owners should report any sightings of rats to the local authorities. Or alternatively head HERE to report pest and rat sightings on the .gov website online.

It is not invariably by appearance alone that you will be alerted to the presence of rats, their behaviour is oftentimes enough to enlighten you. It's possible you might come upon a rat's nest in some tucked away location, you could come across rat holes chewed in skirting boards or floorboards, you may notice droppings on floors or in cupboards or you might hear noises coming from a wall, floor or loft.

If you don't wish to wait for the local environmental health authority to address your rat issues you may also call a local Cumbernauld pest controller or rat catcher who will be a specialist in the business of pest removal. In the world today rat catchers generally come under the umbrella category of pest control, and pest elimination services do not only control rats but in addition mice, wasps, moles, fleas, bedbugs, cockroaches and many more types of garden and domestic pests.

Checking for Rats: If you have an idea that you may have rats in your business or property, there are several ways that you're able to tell. You can listen out for scratching noises emanating from walls and rooves, particularly at night, hunt for tail trails or footprints on loose soil or in dusty areas, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, check for gnawing in wires, cables and wood, particularly in attics, look out for burrows or holes adjacent to solid surfaces, keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they look similar to large grains of rice and are dark brown in colour.

Burrows: Burrowing and digging is a thing that all rats really love to do and it is at the side of solid objects or structures like paths, garages, garden shed bases and patios that they predominantly like to dig. Providing them with nesting, shelter and food storage, rat burrows are excavated into substantial systems that could even cause damage if allowed to continue. Look out for holes having smooth sides, which have been rubbed by the steady comings and goings of these busy animals. Typically around 2" to 4" across, entrances to burrows are quite easy to recognize. Throw some stuff into the entrance hole and check back the next day to find out if it's been shifted. This should show you if rats are still about.

Reporting Rats

We will go into it a bit more now, although this subject was discussed earlier. The local council is where you should send a report if you witness rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public space. With regards to rats this may sometimes be a free service, though you'll normally be asked to pay for other infestations for example wasps, cockroaches and bed bugs. Sightings of rats can also be reported using the Government (.gov) webpage HERE. You can needless to say schedule your own rat catcher to come and deal with the issue by going HERE.
