Manchester Rat Catchers Contractors (M1): Noticing rats in your house or garden is usually rather a shocking experience to go through although it isn't such a common occurrence in Manchester these days, it's definitely something that happens. Rats breed quickly and are likely to cause issues, especially when there are a lot of them. Just one sighting of a lone rat won't be all that much of a problem, however if you are noticing them regularly you'll want to seek help.

There are 2 species of rat which you might come across in Manchester, black rats and brown (or common) rats. Its fairly improbable that you will ever come across black rats, and if you have seen a rat just recently its likely to have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were common at one time and were responsible for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're quite rare nowadays, however where they do exist they have an acute sense of hearing, are superb climbers, and the females can give birth to between twenty and one hundred offspring every 12 months.

The longest of the 2 rat breeds is the brown rat at around nine inches, while the black rat only grows to between 5 and 7 inches. To stop their teeth from growing too long, common brown rats must keep on chewing stuff, which is the reason they are responsible for so much damage and destruction. They particularly prefer to gnaw on woodwork.

An infestation of rats cause a number of issues for home or business owners in and around Manchester, they'll leave droppings, transmit diseases, gnaw through wires, pipes, woodwork and insulation, and get up to all sorts of mischief. Householders must always report any sightings of rats to their local authority. Or even go HERE to report incidences of rats and pests on the .gov website.

It is not purely by sight that you'll become aware of the presence of rats, their behaviour is sometimes quite enough to enlighten you. It could be that you may hear scratching coming from a loft, wall or floor, you might observe holes gnawed into floorboards or skirting boards, you might start seeing droppings on the floor or in cupboards or you may come upon a rat's nest hidden away somewhere.

Unless you want to wait around for the local authorities to handle this rat infestation you could also call in local Manchester pest controller or rat catcher who'll be qualified in the area of pest removal. There are no longer all that many folks nowadays who only specialise in rat problems, you can also bring them in if you've got a wasp nest in your walls or even moles digging up your lawn.

Checking for Rats: There are a number of ways that you can find out when you've got rats. If you've got some suspicions that there may be rats in your business or property you can watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, keep your eyes open for faeces (droppings), they are dark brown in colour and look just like large grains of rice, listen out for scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, particularly at night, look out for tunnels or burrows close to solid surfaces, check for gnawing in wood, cables and wires, particularly in attics, try to find signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas.

Burrows: When you have rats appearing in the garden, the probabilities are that there'll be a burrow somewhere. Rats love to dig and burrow and they frequently dig them alongside solid objects or structures like paths, garage foundations, patios and shed bases. These are the best spots to check out if you think there might be rats in the area. They excavate substantial networks of burrows which provide a nesting place, shelter and food storage. A sure indication of a rat burrow is a smooth sided hole close to a solid surface, where the ins and outs of hairy creatures have rubbed and polished the entrance hole. When you discover holes but aren't positive that they are made by rats, they will commonly be 2-4 inches in diameter. A smart way to determine if rats are still living in the burrow is to chuck some stuff into the burrow entrance and check if it's been removed the following day.

Reporting Rats

We will go into more detail here, though this subject was highlighted earlier in this article. Should you spot rats in a neighbours garden, in your own garden or in a public space it is generally smart to report it to the local council. Occasionally local authorities provide a free service for rat problems but payment is generally needed for most other unwelcome pests such as wasps, cockroaches and bed bugs.
