Rat Catchers Morley

Morley Rat Catchers Contractors (LS27): Observing rats in your house or garden can be quite an unsettling experience and while it isn't so common an occurrence in Morley nowadays, its certainly not unusual. Rats tend to breed rather quickly and can cause issues, especially when they are present in numbers. One incidence of a solitary rat might not be too much of a problem, however if you happen to be seeing them on a regular basis it's best to find a solution.

There are actually two sorts of rat which you might spot in Morley, common (brown) rats and black rats. It is quite unlikely that you will ever see a black rat, and if you have spotted a rat fairly recently it is likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were at one time common and were responsible for the Great Plague, they're rather rare nowadays, but where they do exist they have an acute sense of hearing, are superb climbers, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 offspring each year.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5" to 7" long, is smaller than the brown variety, which reaches lengths of nearly 9 inches and weighs in at close to 500g. Much of the damage and destruction caused by brown rats is because to prevent their teeth from growing too much, they've got to continually gnaw stuff. Timber is particularly vulnerable to this attention.

Rat infestations may cause all sorts of issues for business and home owners in Morley, they will spread disease, leave droppings, gnaw through pipes, insulation, wires and woodwork, and contaminate foodstuffs. Homeowners must report sightings of rats to their local authority. Or alternatively go HERE to report sightings of rats and other pest problems on the .gov dedicated webpage.

Pest Control in Morley

It isn't only by appearance that you'll be alerted to the existence of rats, their behaviour is sometimes quite enough to give warning. It could be that you could stumble upon a rat's nest in some out of sight location, you might encounter holes chewed in floorboards or skirting boards, you may hear scratching coming from a wall, floor or loft or you may notice droppings on floor surfaces or in cupboards.

To tackle this situation there are various approaches that you might consider. You could set poison or traps yourself, you could get hold of the local Morley council or you can locate a rat catcher or pest removal expert. There are not very many people these days who only specialise in issues with rats, you can also bring them in if you have a problem with moles causing damage to your lawn or even a wasps nest in your walls.

Have You Got Rats?: If you have an inkling that you could have rats in your home or business, there are various ways that you'll be able to tell. You can search for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, watch out for rub marks on walls and skirtings where greasy fur has left marks, look out for burrows or tunnels alongside solid surfaces, check for gnaw marks in wires, wood and cables, particularly in lofts, keep your eyes open for faeces, they look like large grains of rice and are dark brown in colour, listen closely for constant scratching noises emanating from attics and walls, in particular during the night.

Burrows: Burrowing and digging is one thing that rats really like to do and its next to solid objects or structures like garage foundations, patios, garden shed bases and paths that they predominantly prefer to dig. These are not just straightforward holes in the ground, but extensive systems of burrows, intended to use as a nesting place, food storage and shelter. Keep your eyes peeled for holes with smooth edges, which have been rubbed by the frequent coming and going of these busy pests. When you notice holes but are not positive that they are made by rats, they'll normally be 2" to 4" across. A good way to determine if rats still live in that specific burrow is to throw a bit of debris into the hole and see whether it's been cleared the following day.

Reporting Rat Sightings

We briefly brought up this earlier, so now let's go into it a bit more. The local environmental health is where you should report it if you see rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public space. Some councils will solve problems with rats at no cost, but if you have other infestations for instance bed bugs, cockroaches and wasps they will generally charge you. Also, it is very easy to report rat infestations using the Government (.gov) website which you'll find HERE. To have the issue sorted fast book a rat catcher HERE.

Problems With Mice: Mice are often just as much of an issue as having rats, especially when they find their way inside your home. While not as large, mice still contaminate foodstuffs, breed quickly, leave droppings and gnaw at stuff. Also, just like rats, setting traps and poisoning are the favoured methods for dealing with mouse infestations in Morley. If you have a mouse infestation, Morley rat catchers should be happy to help clear up this problem. Head over to RATED PEOPLE and find a pest control specialist in your area.
