Rat Catchers Swadlincote DE11

There are actually two kinds of rat that you might spot in Swadlincote, black rats and brown (or common) rats. It is pretty unlikely that you will ever see a black rat, and if you've seen a rat recently it's likely to have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were the cause of the Great Plague, they are rather scarce nowadays, though where they do exist they have an acute sense of hearing, are amazing climbers, and can give birth to between twenty and one hundred offspring every 12 months.

The black rat at 5 to 7 inches, isn't as large as the brown rat, which grows to lengths of nearly nine inches and weighs in at about 500g. A lot of the damage and destruction caused by brown rats is down to the fact that to keep their teeth from getting too much, they've got to constantly gnaw stuff. They particularly prefer to gnaw on timber.

Rat infestations will cause a variety of issues for business owners and householders in Swadlincote, they will spread diseases, gnaw through pipes, woodwork, insulation and wires, leave droppings, and build nests. The local council needs to be informed whenever rats are spotted. Or perhaps post a report to record incidences of rats and pests on the .gov website HERE, which will be passed onto your local authority.

Pest Control in Swadlincote

You'll on occasion discover the existence of rats not in fact by seeing them, but by them indicating their existence by other means. Perhaps you might hear scratching noises coming from a wall, floor or loft, you might observe rat holes gnawed into floorboards or skirting boards, you could detect droppings on the floor or in cupboards or you may uncover a rat's nest hidden away somewhere.

If you don't wish to wait for environmental health to solve your rat problem you may also speak to a local Swadlincote pest controller or rat catcher who'll be experienced in the business of pest removal. There aren't that many people these days who only specialise in rat catching, you're also able to bring them in if you have a wasp nest in your loft or even moles causing damage to your lawn.

Problems With Moles: A number of rat catchers in Swadlincote can also help you with moles (the furry kind!). Moles can cause issues in different ways to rats and are not quite so hated. It is out in the garden where you may have problems with moles, and lawns in particular are at risk. Neatly mowed lawns spoiled by unsightly heaps of freshly dug earth are a sure sign of moles. Using traps is by far the most humane and acceptable method to get rid of moles.

Signs of Rats: If you've got a notion that you could have rats in your business or property, there are a number of ways in which you're able to find out. You should be on the lookout for holes or burrows adjacent to solid surfaces, try to find footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they are dark brown in colour and look like large grains of rice, check for gnaw marks in cables, wires and wood, especially in lofts, listen for continual scratching noises emanating from walls and rooves, particularly during the night, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirtings and walls.

Burrowing: A thing that rats like to do is burrow and dig, and their favoured place to do it is next to and beneath solid structures and objects such as terraces, garage foundations, shed bases and walkways. These are not often just straightforward holes, but rather substantial networks of burrows, created to use as shelter, food storage and nesting places. The access points to burrows are usually worn smooth by the continual motion, so look out for smooth sided holes alongside solid surfaces. Typically approximately 2" to 4" across, burrow entrances are not difficult to identify. You should check if rats are there by partially filling up the entrance hole to determine if they come back and clear it away.

Rat Sightings - Reporting: The following is more detail on a subject we discussed earlier. It is always a great idea to inform the local authorities if you see rats in a neighbours garden, in a public place or in your own garden. In the case of rats this may sometimes be a free service, while you will normally be faced with a charge for some other pest infestations such as bed bugs, cockroaches and wasps. Rat infestations can also be reported on the .gov website HERE. To get the problem taken care of swiftly schedule a rat catcher HERE.

Problems With Mice: Mice may be just as much of an issue as having rats, especially if they get into your home. Mice, like rats, contaminate food, leave droppings, breed quickly and gnaw at stuff. The same methods are generally employed to deal with mouse infestations in Swadlincote, this means poisoning and trapping are favoured. Regardless of whether you've got an issue with rats or mice, check out RATED PEOPLE to seek out a local Swadlincote pest controller to get it sorted.
