Rat Catchers Perth PH1

There are 2 types of rat that you might encounter in Perth, black rats and common (brown) rats. It's rather improbable that you'll ever see black rats, and if you have seen a rat fairly recently chances are it will have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were common at one time and were blamed for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are fairly scarce now, although when they are seen they're exceptional climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can give birth to between 20 and 100 baby rats every 12 months.

The longest and heaviest of the two rat varieties is the brown rat at about nine inches, while the black rat only measures 5 to 7" long. Brown rats cause problems as they've got to constantly gnaw at stuff to stop their teeth from growing too much. Wood is particularly prone to their gnawing.

Rats cause a range of problems in homes and businesses around Perth and they leave droppings, transmit diseases, gnaw through wires, pipes, woodwork and insulation, and generally cause a nuisance. Any sightings of rats need to be reported to the local authorities. You can also report rat problems on the .gov website online HERE.

Rat Traps:Rat Cage Whether you are likely to take care of the rat situation by yourself or if you are calling in the professionals, one of the ways to deal with rats is by using rat traps. You will discover various kinds of rat traps these days, some which kill rats and others that imprison the rat for later release. The capture style are the optimal choice for individuals who detest to see creatures harmed in any way whatsoever, even pests. If you have a look around you will obtain loads of varying designs such as: cage traps, spring loaded bait traps, electronic rat traps and enclosed poison traps.

Rat Poison: One method to solve a rat infestation is to lay down poison. Grains of wheat are covered with a poisoned chemical and left for the rats to ingest, it then takes them a few days to die. The correct placement of the poison bait is crucial and may be responsible for the failure or success of this process. Generally difenacoum, bromadioline or brodifacoum are the poisons used. You've got to be extremely careful to keep these poisons away from cats and dogs. Brands of rat poison made in the UK include the likes of: RatKil, Rentokil, Pest Expert, Propest, Roshield and Elixir Gardens.

Spotting Rats: When you've got an inkling you may have rats in your business or property, there are a few ways in which you'll be able to tell. You should hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, look out for holes or burrows near to solid surfaces, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls, keep your eyes open for faeces (droppings), they're dark brown and look like large grains of rice, check for gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, especially in lofts, listen out for constant scratching noises coming from walls and attics, in particular at nighttime.

Rat Burrows: One thing that all rats love to do is burrow, and the area where they particularly prefer to dig is adjacent to solid structures and objects such as garages, walkways, garden shed bases and patios. Useful for food storage, shelter and a nesting place, burrows are excavated into extensive systems which may even cause damage to buildings if something isn't done. A sure sign of a rat burrow is a hole with smooth sides close to a solid structure, where the comings and goings of furry animals have polished the entrance hole. When you spot holes but are not sure if they're rats, they will generally be 2-4 inches across. A great way to find out if rats are nesting in the burrow is to toss some debris into the burrow and see if it's been cleared the following day.
