Rat Catchers Tamworth

Tamworth Rat Catchers Contractors (B77): Spotting rats in your garden or house is usually quite a frightening thing to experience even though it isn't such a regular occurrence in Tamworth these days, its certainly something that does happen. Rats breed very quickly and will likely cause problems, especially when their numbers spiral out of hand. One sighting of a solitary rat probably won't be that much of a problem, however if you happen to be noticing them frequently you must report it.

There are two types of rat that you may spot in Tamworth, common (brown) rats and black rats. Its relatively unlikely that you'll ever see black rats, and if you have stumbled upon a rat recently it is likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were once common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're fairly rare now, though when they are seen they have good hearing, are exceptional climbers, and can produce between twenty and one hundred baby rats each year.

The longest and heaviest of the 2 rats is the brown at about nine inches, while the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only measures 5-7" long. Brown rats cause damage as they've got to continually gnaw on things to stop their teeth from getting too long. They especially choose to gnaw at wood.

Rats leave behind droppings, gnaw through wires, pipes, insulation and woodwork, spread diseases, and generally cause issues in homes and businesses in and around Tamworth. Homeowners must always report any sightings of rats to their relevant local authority. Also you can report rat problems on the .gov website online HERE.

Pest Control in the Tamworth Area

It isn't only by appearance that you'll become aware of the presence of rats, their habits are often quite enough to give warning. Perhaps you might find droppings in cupboards or on the floor, you might uncover a rat's nest hidden away somewhere, you could come across rat holes gnawed into floorboards or skirting boards or you might hear scratching coming from a wall, loft or floor.

To remedy this situation there are various routes that you could take. You could put down traps or poison yourself, you can find a rat catcher or you could get hold of your local Tamworth council. Long ago, rat catchers were exactly that, but today they're generally called pest controllers and will not only be happy to help you tackle getting rid of rats but also resolving problems with cockroaches, wasps, ants, mice, moles and much more.

Have You Got Rats?: When you've got suspicions that you may have rats in your business or home, there are a variety of ways that you'll be able to find out. You could hunt for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, pay attention to gnawing in cables, wires and wood, particularly in attics, keep an eye out for faeces (droppings), they are darkish brown and look like large grains of rice, listen out for scratching noises coming from walls and lofts, in particular during the night, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirting boards, be on the lookout for burrows or holes adjacent to solid objects.

Rat Burrows: When you have rats appearing in your garden, the probability is that there'll be a burrow. Rats like to dig and burrow and they often do this next to solid structures and objects such as patios, garages, garden sheds and walkways. These are the spots to check if you believe there may be rats nesting there. Providing them with shelter, food storage and nesting places, rat burrows are excavated into extensive systems that can even cause damage to buildings if not nipped in the bud. A sure indication of a rat burrow is usually a smooth sided hole near to a solid surface, where the coming and going of hairy critters have polished and rubbed the burrow entrance. The burrow entrances are normally 2-4 inches in diameter. It's possible to find out if rats are still there by temporarily blocking up the burrow entrance to determine if they come back and clear it away.

Reporting Rats and Pests: We talked about this topic earlier, so here we'll go into it a bit more. It is always a good idea to report it to the local authorities if you spot rats in a public place, in a neighbours garden or in your own garden. Most councils will solve problems with rats cost-free, however if you have other infestations such as wasps, cockroaches and bed bugs they'll quite often charge. You can visit the Government (.gov) website HERE to report rats. Click HERE to book a local rat catcher and get the problem resolved without delay.

Mouse Problems Tamworth: While not as upsetting as discovering rats scuttling around garden or house, mice could be as much of a concern. Like rats, mice gnaw at stuff, breed rapidly, contaminate food, leave droppings and are typically a nuisance. The same techniques are typically used to solve mouse problems in Tamworth, basically poisoning and setting traps are preferred. Tamworth rat catchers can also help you get rid of mouse infestations, so get in touch with one or check out RATED PEOPLE to get the issue resolved.
