There are two sorts of rat which you might run into in Deal, black rats and common (brown) rats. Its relatively unlikely that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you have seen a rat just recently the chances are it will have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are pretty rare nowadays, although where they are seen they're terrific climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can give birth to between twenty and one hundred baby rats every 12 months.

The longest of the 2 rat varieties is the common brown rat at approximately nine inches, whilst the black rat only measures 5 to 7" long. To prevent their incisors from getting too long, brown rats need to keep gnawing at stuff, which is why they are the cause of so much damage. Their gnawing is often focused on items made of wood.

Rats leave behind droppings, transmit diseases, gnaw through woodwork, pipes, wires and insulation, and basically cause issues in homes and businesses throughout Deal. The local authority really should be notified when there are sightings of rats. You might also report rat and pest problems on the .gov website HERE.

It's not purely by sight that you will be alerted to the presence of rats, their habits are oftentimes quite enough to enlighten you. It could be that you could come across rat holes gnawed in floorboards or skirtings, you may hear scratching coming from a loft, wall or floor, you may stumble upon a rat's nest hidden away somewhere or you might detect droppings on floor surfaces or in cupboards.

To address this issue there are several strategies that you might consider. You could lay poison or traps yourself, you can bring in a rat catcher or you could contact the local Deal environmental health. Way back in the past, rat catchers used to be simply that, but currently they're labeled pest control experts and will not just be willing to help you with rat problems but also solving problems with mice, cockroaches, wasps, ants, moles and much more.

Rat Traps: One of the ways that you might tackle a rat problem is to use rat traps. These days there are many different kinds of rat traps on the market, making sure you have a range of capture alternatives. Folks who don't like to see animals of any type hurt, will doubtless lean towards the capture kind of trap. Available sorts of rat trap include the likes of: electronic rat traps, enclosed poison traps, cage traps and spring loaded bait traps.

Signs of Rat Infestations: There are several ways that you can find out if you've got rats. When you've got an idea that there may be rats in your business or property you should check for gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, particularly in lofts, try to find tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, keep an eye out for rat droppings, they're dark brown and look like large grains of rice, listen closely for scratching noises coming from walls and attics, particularly at nighttime, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, look out for tunnels or burrows adjacent to solid objects.

Rat Burrows: Digging is a thing that rats like to do and it's next to and under solid structures and objects like walkways, shed bases, terraces and garage foundations that they particularly like to dig. Rats dig out substantial burrow networks which provide food storage, shelter and nesting. Keep your eyes peeled for holes with smooth sides, that have been rubbed by the constant motion of these busy little animals. Usually around two to four inches in diameter, entrance holes to rat burrows are normally fairly easy to identify. You can check if rats are there by temporarily filling up the burrow entrance to find out whether they come back and remove it.
