There are two species of rat that you may run into in Taunton, common (brown) rats and black rats. Its relatively unlikely that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you have spotted a rat just recently it's likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague, they're quite rare nowadays, but where they do occur they have good hearing, are exceptional climbers, and can produce between 20 and 100 offspring in just one year.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7" long, is a little smaller than the brown variety, which grows to lengths of nearly 9" and weighs in at close to 500g. To stop their incisors from getting too long, brown rats have to keep on chewing things, which is the reason they are responsible for such a lot of damage and destruction. Their attention is often targeting stuff made of wood.

Rats gnaw their way through wires, insulation, pipes and woodwork, spread diseases, leave droppings, and are generally troublesome in homes and businesses in and around Taunton. Sightings of rats should always be reported to the local authority. Or otherwise click HERE to report incidences of rats and pests on the .gov web page.

Pest Control in the Taunton Area

You will in some cases notice the existence of rats not by actually seeing them, but by their announcing their activity in other ways. It could be that you might stumble upon a rat's nest in some out of the way location, you could spot holes chewed in floorboards or skirting boards, you could hear noises coming from a wall, floor or loft or you could discover droppings on floors or in cupboards.

If you do not wish to wait around for the local council to control your problem you could always bring in local Taunton rat catcher or pest controller who will be knowledgeable in the world of pest removal. Long ago, rat catchers were simply that, but at present they tend to be known as pest controllers and will not only be willing to help you tackle getting rid of rats but also wasps, cockroaches, mice, ants, moles and more.

Problems With Moles: Taunton rat catchers are often also brought in to deal with another issue, ie moles. By no means such hated critters, moles cause different issues than rats. It is outside in your garden where you're likely to have issues with moles, and lawns in particular are susceptible. Perfectly clipped lawns spoiled by unsightly piles of newly dug dirt are sure signs of activity by moles. The favorite and most humane strategy to remove moles is by using traps.

Signs of Rat Infestations: There are a number of ways by which you can find out when you have rats. If you have an idea that there might be rats in your business or home you could listen out for scratching noises emanating from rooves and walls, especially at night, pay attention to gnawing in cables, wires and wood, especially in attics, hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, be on the lookout for burrows or holes next to solid objects, keep your eyes open for faeces (droppings), they are dark brown in colour and look just like large grains of rice, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirting boards.

Rat Burrows: Digging and burrowing is a thing that all rats like to do and its at the side of solid objects or structures such as terraces, paths, garden shed bases and garage foundations that they especially prefer to dig. These are not just straightforward holes, but rather substantial systems of burrows, created to provide food storage, a nesting place and shelter. The access points to rat burrows are often worn smooth by frequent coming and going, so keep an eye out for smooth sided holes close to solid structures. Usually about 2-4 inches in diameter, entrances to burrows are not difficult to spot. A great way to discover if rats currently using the burrow is to toss a bit of debris into the burrow and find out if it has been cleared the following day.

Problems With Mice: Mice could be as much of a problem as rats, particularly if they get into your home. While much smaller, mice are still going to breed quickly, gnaw at stuff, leave droppings and contaminate foodstuffs. The solutions to mouse infestations in Taunton are quite similar to those employed for rats ie poisoning and trapping. No matter if you have got a problem with mice or rats, pay a visit to RATED PEOPLE to find an expert Taunton pest controller to sort it out for you.
