Rat Catchers Ware

Ware Rat Catchers Contractors (SG11): Whilst it's not so commonplace at present, noticing rats in your garden or even inside your house in Ware just isn't a good experience to go through. One sighting of a rat shouldn't be that much of a problem, but, if you spot the presence of rats more frequently or spot more than one you could potentially be in for trouble because they tend to reproduce so fast.

While neither of the two species of rat currently seen in the UK are natives of these shores, they've certainly thrived since they arrived here. The brown rat is especially common (hence its name) whilst the ship (black) rat just isn't so much so nowadays. Both of these breeds escaped from Asia and got to Great Britain aboard ships.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches, is a little smaller than the brown rat, which grows to lengths of nearly 9" and weighs in at about 500g. Brown rats may cause damage because they've got to constantly gnaw at things to prevent their teeth from growing too much. Wood is particularly vulnerable to this gnawing.

Rat infestations will cause a variety of issues for home owners and businesses throughout Ware, they'll gnaw through pipes, woodwork, wires and insulation, leave behind droppings, spread diseases, and build nests. Property holders should report any sightings of rats to their local authorities. Or perhaps click HERE to report pest and rat problems on the .gov web page.

Pest Control Ware

You'll oftentimes become aware of the presence of rats not actually by observing them, but by their indicating their activity by other means. It could be that you may detect droppings in cupboards or on floor surfaces, you may spot rat holes gnawed in skirtings or floorboards, you might come across a rat's nest hidden away somewhere or you may hear scratching noises coming from a wall, loft or floor.

If you're going to have this problem dealt with effectively you must speak to a specialist. You could either get in contact with your local council or call in a specialist Ware rat catcher or pest controller for yourself. These days rat catchers normally fall into the category of pest control, and pest elimination services not only remove rats but also wasps, moles, bedbugs, cockroaches, mice, fleas and all sorts of household and garden pests.

Ware Mole Catching

Ware rat catchers are occasionally called on to handle another similar type of pest, namely moles. Moles may cause problems in a different way to rats and are not hated anywhere near so much. Gardens and lawns are the biggest things at risk of damage if you've got a mole situation. Nicely trimmed lawns spoiled by unsightly piles of freshly dug dirt are sure signs of mole activity. Moles are usually caught in traps and then re-released elsewhere, if you favour the most humane method.

Do You Have Rats?

There are numerous ways that you can tell if you have rats. If you've got suspicions that there might be rats in your home or business you could search for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, listen out for scratching noises coming from walls and roofs, particularly at nighttime, pay attention to gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, especially in lofts, keep your eyes open for droppings, they are dark brown in colour and look much like large grains of rice, watch for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, be on the lookout for tunnels or burrows adjacent to solid objects.


Digging and burrowing is one thing that all rats love to do and it is adjacent to solid structures and objects such as terraces, shed bases, garage foundations and pathways where they especially prefer to dig. Rats create extensive networks of burrows which provide nesting places, food storage and shelter. Keep an eye out for holes with smooth edges, which may have been rubbed by the frequent motion of these busy little creatures. Typically approximately 2-4 inches across, entrances to burrows are not difficult to spot. A great way to learn if rats still live in the burrow is to chuck some rubbish into the burrow entrance and see if it has been cleared the following day.

Problems With Mice

Mice may be just as much of a problem as having rats, particularly if they get into your home. While a lot smaller, mice are still going to contaminate foodstuffs, leave droppings, gnaw at stuff and breed rapidly. Also, much like rats, poisoning and trapping are the favoured techniques for resolving mouse infestations in Ware. Ware rat catchers will also help you get rid of mice infestations, so get on the phone or check out RATED PEOPLE to get the issue resolved.
