If you see rats in Thatcham, the probability is that they'll be common brown rats, although there are in fact two breeds of rat currently living in the British Isles; brown (common rats) and black (or ship rats). As you might be aware ship rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague of the 17th Century during which period they were very common. Black rats are quite rare nowadays but in fact neither species is native to Great Britain, both hailing from from Asia.

The largest of the two rat species is the common brown at about 9 inches, whilst the black rat only measures 5 to 7" long. A great deal of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is because to keep their teeth from growing too long, they've got to continuously gnaw things. Their gnawing is usually focused on things made of timber.

An infestation of rats cause a variety of issues for home or business owners in Thatcham, they will gnaw their way through woodwork, insulation, wires and pipes, transmit disease, leave behind droppings, and build nests.

Rat Prevention Thatcham: Discouraging rodents before they even show up is the most effective way of avoiding having problems with them. So, even though you do not presently have a rat problem, rat prevention must be on top of your list of priorities. Among the primary factors that cause rat infestations is household waste in gardens. You will just attract rats if you provide them with both the place and materials to build a nest. When there's also an abundance of food available those rats imagine they are in paradise, so be mindful that bird seed feeders can attract rats, particularly when they're vulnerable to overflowing, and domestic food scraps should never be accessible.

Checking for Rats: There are plenty of ways that you can find out when you've got rats. When you've got a notion that there may be rats in your property or business you could watch out for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, keep your eyes peeled for droppings (faeces), they look similar to large grains of rice and are darkish brown, pay attention to gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, particularly in attics, hunt for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, be on the lookout for burrows or tunnels alongside solid objects, listen for continual scratching noises emanating from rooves and walls, especially at night.

Burrows: The one thing that all rats like to do is dig and burrow, and the location where they mainly like to burrow is close to solid objects or structures like garages, terraces, walkways and garden sheds. These are not just simple holes in the ground, but rather substantial networks of burrows, built to provide food storage, nesting and shelter. Keep an eye out for holes having smooth sides, which may have been polished by the endless ins and outs of these busy critters. Usually 2-4 inches in diameter, entrances to burrows are not hard to spot. Throw some debris into the entrance and look the next day to ascertain if it has been shifted. This can determine if rats are still in there.

Reporting Rat Sightings
