If you do happen to notice rats in Madeley, the likelihood is that they'll be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), although there are in fact two species of rat currently living in the UK; black (ship) rats and brown (common) rats. As you might know ship rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague (17th C) during which period they were fairly widespread. Black rats are relatively rare nowadays but in fact neither breed is a native of the British Isles, both originally from from Asia.

The longest and heaviest of the 2 rat breeds is the common brown rat at about 9", whilst the black only measures 5 to 7" long. Brown rats may cause damage as they've got to continually gnaw on stuff to prevent their teeth from growing too much. Their attention is usually targeting items that's made out of wood.

Rats leave behind droppings, gnaw through wires, pipes, woodwork and insulation, transmit disease, and basically cause issues in homes and businesses in Madeley.

Rat Prevention Madeley: The best way to avoid issues with rats and mice is not to attract them from the get go. Consequently, even though you do not currently have a rat problem, deterring rats and mice has to be high on your priority list. Domestic trash littered around the garden is among the principal factors behind rat and rodent infestations. Providing them with both the materials and place to build nests will only attract them. When there's also a lot of food available these rats imagine they are in paradise, so keep in mind that bird seed feeders attract rats, particularly when they are prone to spillages, and domestic food scraps should not be accessible.

Rat Traps Madeley:Rat Cage One of the ways that you can sort out a rat issue is by using rat traps. There are different sorts of rat traps these days, some that actually kill rats and others that imprison the rat for later release. If you're opposed to hurting animals, maybe the capture traps are the best solution. Rat traps are available in all sizes and styles and include the likes of: enclosed poison traps, cage traps, spring loaded bait traps and electronic rat traps.

Signs of Rats: If you've got an idea you could have rats in your business or home, there are a variety of ways in which you'll be able to find out. You should keep your eyes open for droppings (faeces), they look much like large grains of rice and are dark brown, hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, be on the lookout for holes or burrows next to solid surfaces, watch out for rub marks on skirtings and walls where greasy fur has left marks, pay attention to gnawing in wires, cables and wood, particularly in attics, listen closely for continual scratching noises coming from walls and lofts, especially during the night.

Burrows: Something that rats love to do is dig burrows, and the place where they mainly prefer to dig is adjacent to solid structures and objects such as paths, garage foundations, shed bases and patios. Providing shelter, nesting places and food storage, burrows are dug into extensive systems which could even cause damage to buildings if something isn't done. The entrances to rat burrows are usually worn smooth by constant movement, so keep your eyes open for smooth sided holes at the side of solid structures. The entrances to rat burrows are normally 2" to 4" across. You can find out if rats are still about by partially blocking the burrow entrance to ascertain if they come back and remove it.
