Rat Catchers Rugby

Rugby Rat Catchers Contractors (CV21): Even though its not such a common occurrence in Rugby nowadays, people still have troubles with rats every once in awhile. Seeing a rat in your house or garden is not a good thing to experience, and would be enough to cause some householders the shakes. Individual rats are unlikely to create that much of a problem, but naturally rats tend to breed quickly and may start to cause problems as their numbers rise.

Though neither of the two breeds of rat presently living in the United Kingdom are native to these islands, they've certainly made themselves at home. The brown rat is particularly commonplace whilst the black (ship) rat just isn't so much nowadays. Both varieties originated in Asia and made their way to the United Kingdom as stowaways on boats.

The black rat at 5 to 7 inches, isn't as big as the common brown rat, which attains a length of nearly 9" and weighs in at around half a kilogram. Much of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is because to prevent their incisor teeth from getting too long, they must constantly chew on stuff. They especially prefer to gnaw at timber.

Rats may cause a range of issues in homes and business premises in Rugby and they gnaw their way through pipes, insulation, wires and woodwork, spread diseases, leave behind droppings, and are basically problematic. Sightings of rats need to be reported to the local environmental health department. Or alternatively click HERE to report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website online.

Species of Rat

In Rugby, Warwickshire or anywhere else in Britain, there are only two kinds of rat that you are going to come across. The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) and the Black Rat (Rattus Rattus).

The Brown Rat:

The brown rat (Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), sewer rat, street rat or common rat) is the most commonly seen rat in the British Isles and across Continental Europe (also North America). The colour of this rat varies between grey and brown, it usually grows to about four to nine inches (plus a similar length tail) with a weight range of between 140 and 500g. Nowadays known to have originated in Central Asia, the brown rat was at one time assumed to have come from Norway (hence its name). Brown rats are omniverous (eat pretty much anything) though they favour grain cereals, they have excellent hearing but poor eyesight, the females attain sexual maturity in 5 weeks and may have five litters per annum (with up to 14 pups in each litter), they burrow extensively and climb brilliantly.

The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus):

Originating from Southeast Asia (quite likely India) the black rat, ship rat or roof rat is also not a native species of Britain or Europe. Almost certainly traveling in spice shipments at the height of the Roman Empire, the black rat eventually spread through Continental Europe. The black rat was at one time a common sight in Great Britain but was largely replaced by the more dominant brown rat and now is quite scarce. The black rat attains a length of five to seven inches a weight of 75-230g. Well known for spreading diseases and pathogens black rats may be the cause of listeria, typhus, bubonic plague, salmonella, toxoplasmosis, Weil's disease and trichinosis.

Rats - How to Spot Them: There are a number of ways by which you can find out when you have rats. If you've got your suspicions that there may be rats in your business or property you could search for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, check for gnawing in wires, cables and wood, especially in lofts, watch out for rub marks on skirting boards and walls where greasy fur has left marks, listen out for scratching noises coming from walls and attics, particularly at night, be on the lookout for holes or burrows next to solid surfaces, keep an eye out for droppings, they are dark brown in colour and look like large grains of rice.

Burrows: One thing that rats love to do is burrow and dig, and their favoured area to do it is next to and beneath solid objects or structures like pathways, garden shed bases, terraces and garages. Rats create substantial burrow networks that provide them with food storage, nesting places and shelter. The entrances to burrows tend to be worn smooth by endless movement, so look out for smooth sided holes alongside solid surfaces. The burrow entrances are commonly around 2" to 4" across. Throw some stuff into the burrow and check the following day to see if it's been moved. This would tell you if the rats are still living there.

Needless to say mice and rats aren't only an issue in Rugby itself, they're just as likely to show up in Clifton upon Dunsmore, Harborough Magna, Brandon, Lilbourne, Brownsover, Dunchurch, Bilton, Newbold on Avon, Long Lawford, Cawston, Newton, Church Lawford, Overslade, Wolston, Hillmorton and various other areas nearby.
