Rat Catchers Loughborough

Loughborough Rat Catchers Contractors (LE11): Noticing rats in your garden or house is usually rather a horrifying experience and whilst its not so regular an occurrence in Loughborough in recent times, its definitely something that happens every now and then. Rats breed quickly and can cause issues, especially when they are seen in numbers. An individual incidence of a solitary rat won't be that much of a problem, however if you are observing them often you should get some specialist advice.

There are two species of rat that you might encounter in Loughborough, brown (common) rats and black rats. Its pretty improbable that you will ever come across a black rat, and if you've spotted a rat fairly recently it's likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were at one time common and were responsible for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're fairly rare now, however where they are seen they have good hearing, are amazing climbers, and can give birth to between twenty and one hundred baby rats each year.

The longest and heaviest of the 2 rats is the common brown rat at around 9", while the black only measures 5" to 7" long. To wear down their constantly growing incisor teetn, common brown rats have to keep chewing things, which is the reason they are the cause of so much damage. Wood is especially prone to this attention.

Rat infestations will lead to all sorts of problems for business owners and householders in and around Loughborough, they will gnaw through wires, insulation, pipes and woodwork, spread diseases, leave behind droppings, and get up to all sorts of mischief. The local council should be informed whenever rats are observed. Or otherwise go HERE to report sightings of rats and other pest problems on the .gov website.

Loughborough Pest Control

You'll on occasion discover the presence of rats not actually by seeing them, but by them announcing their existence by other means. It could be that you might come upon a rat's nest hidden away somewhere, you may spot distinctive rat holes chewed in skirting boards or floorboards, you may hear noises coming from a floor, loft or wall or you could notice droppings in cupboards or on floor surfaces.

If you do not want to wait around for the local environmental health authority to control your problem you can also call in local Loughborough rat catcher or pest controller who'll be experienced in the business of pest removal. There are no longer so many people nowadays who specialise only in issues with rats, you can also bring them in if you have a problem with a wasps nest in your loft space or maybe moles digging up your lawn.

Spotting Rats

There are a few ways that you can find out if you have rats. When you've got suspicions that there may be rats in your business or home you could be on the lookout for holes or burrows near to solid objects, try to find signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, keep your eyes peeled for droppings (faeces), they look much like large grains of rice and are darkish brown, check for gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, particularly in attics, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirting boards, listen out for scratching noises coming from roofs and walls, in particular during the night.

Rat Burrows

Digging and burrowing is something that all rats like to do and it is next to solid structures and objects like terraces, garage foundations, walkways and shed bases that they especially like to dig. These are not often just straightforward holes in the ground, but substantial networks of burrows, made to use as nesting, shelter and food storage. The access points to burrows tend to be worn smooth by frequent coming and going, so look out for smooth sided holes at the side of solid structures. If you discover holes but aren't certain if they are made by rats, they'll commonly be about 2" to 4" in diameter. Throw some debris into the burrow and check the next day to find out whether it has been cleared. This can determine if the rats are still living there.

Reporting Rats and Pests

This is more information on a subject that we brought up earlier. Should you see rats in your own garden, in a public space or in a neighbours garden it is definitely advisable to inform the local authorities. Sometimes your local council will provide a free service for rat problems but payment is normally required for most infestations for example bed bugs, cockroaches and wasps. You can visit the .gov webpage HERE to report rats. To have things sorted out fast contact a rat catcher HERE.
