If you do discover rats in Longton, the probabilities are that they will be brown rats, although there are actually two kinds of rat currently living in Great Britain; brown (or common rats) and black (or ship rats). As you may know black rats were the cause of the Great Plague of the 17th Century at which time they were fairly common. Black rats are relatively rare now but in fact neither breed is native to Great Britain, both of them coming from Asia.

The brown rat is larger than the black rat (Rattus Rattus) and weigh as much as half a kilogram, with a length of about 9". Brown rats can cause damage because they need to continuously gnaw on things to stop their teeth from getting too long. Their interest is frequently targeting items made out of wood.

Rats may cause various kinds of issues in homes and businesses in Longton and they spread diseases, gnaw their way through pipes, wires, woodwork and insulation, leave behind droppings, and are generally problematic. Property holders must always report incidences of rats to the relevant local authority. Or perhaps post a report recording pest and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, that will be passed onto the relevant local authorities.

Pest Control in Longton

It's not always by appearance alone that you will be alerted to the presence of rats, their behaviour is often quite enough to give warning. Perhaps you might detect droppings in cupboards or on floors, you could stumble upon a rat's nest in some tucked away location, you might hear scratching noises coming from a floor, loft or wall or you could come across rat holes chewed into floorboards or skirtings.

If you are going to have this situation managed properly it is best to call in a professional. You could either contact the local environmental health department or get hold of a professional Longton rat catcher or pest controller yourself. There are no longer a lot of people these days who only specialise in rat problems, you can also give them a call if you have a problem with moles causing damage or maybe a wasps nest in your loft area.

Rat Traps: Whether you're planning to tackle the rat dilemma yourself or whether you are bringing in the professionals, one of the ways to do this is to use rat traps. Nowadays there are several different styles of rat traps available, providing you with a range of capture alternatives. People who don't like to think of animals of any kind harmed, will surely lean towards the capture style of trap. If you have a look around you'll obtain plenty of varying designs such as: cage traps, electronic rat traps, enclosed poison traps and spring loaded bait traps.

Problems With Moles: Several rat catchers in Longton will also help with mole issues. Moles may cause trouble in a different way to rats and aren't hated quite so much. It is outside in your garden where you're likely to have problems with moles, and lawns specifically are at risk. Evidence of their destructive activity can be clearly seen in the form of scattered piles of earth on neatly mowed lawns. The favorite and humane method to stop moles is by trapping.

Checking for Rats: If you've got suspicions that you may have rats in your business or property, there are a variety of ways that you can find out. You should watch for rub marks on skirtings and walls where greasy fur has left marks, keep an eye out for droppings, they are dark brown in colour and look similar to large grains of rice, search for signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, listen out for scratching noises coming from walls and attics, particularly at nighttime, look out for burrows or holes near to solid objects, pay attention to gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, particularly in attics.

Burrows: When you have rats appearing in the garden, the likelihood is there's going to be a burrow. Rats love to burrow and they often excavate them close to solid structures and objects like garages, paths, garden sheds and terraces. These are the best locations to check out if you think you have rats nesting there. Useful for food storage, shelter and a nesting place, rat burrows are dug into extensive systems that could even cause damage to structures if something isn't done. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is usually a smooth sided hole near to a solid surface, where the ins and outs of hairy animals have polished and rubbed the burrow entrance. If you discover holes but are not certain if they're made by rats, they will typically be around 2-4 inches across. You can check if rats are there by partially blocking up the burrow entrance to find out if they return and remove it.
