Rat Catchers Rushden

Rushden Rat Catchers Contractors (NN10): While its not such a common occurrence nowadays in Rushden, people do have issues with rats from time to time. Discovering rats in your garden or inside your property isn't a good experience, and will be enough to cause some householders the shivers. Individual rats should not create very much of a problem, however rats breed rapidly and may begin to cause problems as they grow in numbers.

There are two kinds of rat that you might spot in Rushden, brown (common) rats and black rats. It is rather unlikely that you will ever see a black rat, and if you have stumbled upon a rat fairly recently its likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were at one time common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're pretty scarce now, though when they are seen they have an acute sense of hearing, are exceptional climbers, and the females can give birth to between twenty and one hundred offspring in a single year.

Brown rats are normally larger than black rats (Rattus Rattus) and can weigh nearly half a kilogram, with a length of about 9". To wear down their constantly growing incisor teetn, common brown rats need to keep gnawing at things, which explains why they're responsible for so much damage and destruction. Woodwork is particularly susceptible to this attention.

Rats gnaw their way through pipes, woodwork, wires and insulation, leave behind droppings, transmit diseases, and are basically troublesome in homes and businesses in Rushden. Householders need to report rat sightings to the relevant local authority. It is possible to report sightings of rats and other pests on the .gov website HERE.

Pest Control in Rushden

It isn't invariably by appearance alone that you'll become aware of the existence of rats, their behaviour is often quite enough to enlighten you. It is possible you may hear noises coming from a wall, floor or loft, you could find droppings on the floor or in cupboards, you could observe distinctive rat holes gnawed in skirting boards or floorboards or you could stumble upon a rat's nest hidden away.

In order to have this situation remedied properly you need to speak to an expert. You could either get in touch with your local council or call in a professional Rushden rat catcher or pest controller yourself. There are no longer too many people these days who only specialise in rat problems, you can also contact them if you have a problem with moles in your lawn or perhaps a wasp nest in your walls.

Problems With Moles: Though nowhere near such a commonplace pest nowadays moles are occasionally dealt with by rat catchers. Responsible for quite different issues to rats, moles are usually not quite so hated. Gardens and lawns are mainly at risk of damage if you have a mole problem. The familiar sight of earth mounds scattered all over a nicely manicured lawn is the proof of such activity. Capturing with traps is certainly the most favourable and humane technique to get rid of moles. (Tags: Mole Catchers Rushden, Mole Trapping Rushden)

Checking for Rats: If you have suspicions you could have rats in your home or business, there are a variety of means by which you'll be able to find out. You should watch out for rub marks on walls and skirtings where greasy fur has left marks, listen out for constant scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, particularly at night, look out for holes or burrows adjacent to solid surfaces, keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they're dark brown and look just like large grains of rice, pay attention to gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, especially in lofts, try to find signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas.

Rat Burrows: Burrowing is one thing that all rats love to do and it's next to and beneath solid structures and objects like patios, garages, shed bases and pathways where they particularly like to dig. These are often not straightforward holes, but rather substantial networks of burrows, made to provide nesting, food storage and shelter. Watch out for holes having smooth sides, that have been rubbed by the continual movement of these busy pests. Commonly about 2" to 4" in diameter, entrance holes to rat burrows are not hard to spot. You can check if rats are there by temporarily blocking up the entrance hole to find out if they come back and clear it away.
