Rat Catchers Ryde

Ryde Rat Catchers Contractors (PO33): Though its not all that commonplace these days, discovering a rat in your garden or property in Ryde isn't a pleasant thing to experience. Just one rat sighting might not be too much of an issue, nonetheless, if you spot rats more regularly or see more than one rat you could potentially be heading for trouble because they breed so rapidly.

Rat Catchers Ryde PO33

There are actually two sorts of rat which you might come across in Ryde, black rats and common (brown) rats. It is pretty unlikely that you'll ever come across black rats, and if you have encountered a rat fairly recently chances are it will have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were at one time common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're rather rare nowadays, though where they are found they have good hearing, are exceptional climbers, and the females can produce between twenty and one hundred offspring in just one year.

The black rat at 5 to 7" long, is a bit smaller than the brown, which reaches a length of up to about 9 inches and weighs in at about half a kilogram. To stop their incisor teeth from growing too long, brown rats have to keep on chewing things, which is why they cause such a lot of damage. Their attention is commonly targeting objects that is made from wood.

Rats transmit diseases, gnaw through pipes, woodwork, insulation and wires, leave droppings, and will generally cause problems in businesses and homes in and around Ryde. Homeowners should report sightings of rats to the local authority. Or perhaps click HERE to report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website.

Ryde Pest Control

It's not invariably by appearance alone that you'll be alerted to the existence of rats, their actions are often enough to enlighten you. Perhaps you might come across a rat's nest hidden away, you could encounter holes chewed in skirting boards or floorboards, you might notice droppings on the floor or in cupboards or you might hear scratching noises coming from a loft, wall or floor.

To deal with this situation there are various routes that you might take. You could lay poison or traps yourself, you could get hold of the local Ryde environmental health department or you can locate a pest controller who specialises in rat removal. In these modern times rat catchers generally come under the umbrella category of pest management, and pest control specialists not only remove rats but also bedbugs, cockroaches, mice, fleas, moles, wasps and a variety of other household and garden pests.

Signs of Rat Infestations

When you have an inkling you could have rats in your business or home, there are a few means by which you'll be able to find out. You can watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, pay attention to gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, particularly in lofts, hunt for signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, be on the lookout for burrows or holes next to solid surfaces, listen out for scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, particularly at night, keep your eyes open for droppings (faeces), they are dark brown and look just like large grains of rice.

Rat Burrows

One thing that rats love to do is dig and burrow, and the place where they especially like to dig is at the side of solid structures and objects such as shed bases, terraces, walkways and garages. They dig out extensive systems of burrows that provide them with a nesting place, food storage and shelter. Look out for holes with smooth sides, that have been polished by the endless coming and going of these busy little animals. The entrances to burrows are normally two to four inches in diameter. Throw some debris into the entrance hole and check the next day to ascertain if it's been shifted. This will determine if rats are still about.
