Rat Catchers Fleet

Fleet Rat Catchers Contractors (GU51): Though its not that commonplace these days, spotting a rat in your home or garden in Fleet isn't a great experience to go through. A single sighting of a rat might not be that much of a concern, but, if you spot rats more often or notice more than one you might be in for trouble because they breed so quickly.

Rat Catchers Fleet GU51

There are actually two types of rat which you might run into in Fleet, black rats and brown (common) rats. It's pretty unlikely that you'll ever see a black rat, and if you've seen a rat recently its likely to 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 relatively scarce nowadays, but when they are found they've got good hearing, are exceptional climbers, and can produce between 20 and 100 offspring in a single year.

Brown rats are larger than black rats weighing in at 500g and reaching a length of almost 9 inches. The majority of the damage and destruction caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to prevent their incisor teeth from getting too much, they have to constantly gnaw on things. Woodwork is particularly susceptible to their gnawing.

Rats can cause many problems in homes and businesses in Fleet and they transmit diseases, leave behind droppings, gnaw their way through woodwork, wires, insulation and pipes, and generally cause a nuisance. Sightings of rats ought to be reported to the local authority. You might also report rat sightings on the .gov website HERE.

Pest Control in Fleet

You don't always need to observe rats to confirm their existence, since there are several signs that will warn you of their presence. It could be that you may come across distinctive rat holes chewed in floorboards or skirting boards, you could hear scratching noises coming from a loft, wall or floor, you might detect droppings on the floor or in cupboards or you could come upon a rat's nest hidden away.

If you are going to have this issue resolved correctly you need to speak to an expert. You can either inform the local authority or call in a professional Fleet pest controller or rat catcher for yourself. In the good old days, rat catchers used to be precisely that, but nowadays they are commonly known as pest control experts and will not solely be happy to help you manage getting rid of rats but also moles, wasps, mice, ants, cockroaches and more.

Checking for Rats

There are plenty of ways by which you can find out when you've got rats. When you have some suspicions that there could be rats in your business or property you can pay attention to gnawing in wood, cables and wires, particularly in attics, listen out for scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, in particular at nighttime, search for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, watch for rub marks on skirtings and walls where greasy fur has left marks, keep an eye out for rat droppings, they are darkish brown and look similar to large grains of rice, be on the lookout for tunnels or burrows next to solid surfaces.

Rat Burrows

Digging is something that rats love to do and it's next to solid objects or structures like walkways, garages, garden shed bases and terraces where they mainly prefer to dig. Perfect for nesting, shelter and food storage, rat burrows are excavated into extensive systems that can even cause damage to buildings if they remain unchecked. Look out for holes having smooth edges, which may have been polished by the constant ins and outs of these busy pests. The burrow entrances are usually two to four inches across. It's possible to find out if rats are still living there by temporarily blocking the entrance to find out if they come back and remove it.

Reporting Rats

This is a bit more detail on a subject we mentioned previously. It is always smart to report it to the local authorities if you see rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public space. In the case of rats this is sometimes a cost-free service, though you will often be charged for other pests such as wasps, bed bugs and cockroaches. Incidences of rats can also be reported via the Government (.gov) webpage HERE. Click HERE to book a local rat catcher and get the situation resolved immediately.
