There are two sorts of rat which you may encounter in Winkfield, black rats and common (brown) rats. It is relatively unlikely that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you've seen a rat recently its likely to have been the more commonplace brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the Great Plague, they're relatively scarce nowadays, although where they are seen they have an acute sense of hearing, are exceptional climbers, and can produce between twenty and one hundred offspring in just one year.

The largest of the two rats is the common brown rat at approximately 9 inches, whilst the black only measures 5 to 7 inches. Brown rats cause problems as they need to continually chew on things to prevent their teeth from getting too long. Rats especially like to gnaw at woodwork.

An infestation of rats may cause all sorts of issues for business and home owners in Winkfield, they will leave behind droppings, transmit diseases, gnaw their way through woodwork, pipes, wires and insulation, and get up to all sorts of mischief.

In these modern times rat catchers normally fall into the category of pest control, and pest control experts not only deal with rats but also wasps, cockroaches, fleas, moles, mice, bedbugs and many more types of domestic and garden pests.

Checking for Rats

There are several ways by which you can find out when you have rats. When you have a notion that there may be rats in your property or business you could try to find footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, listen for continual scratching noises emanating from rooves and walls, in particular at nighttime, check for gnawing in wires, wood and cables, particularly in attics, be on the lookout for holes or burrows alongside solid objects, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they are dark brown in colour and look just like large grains of rice.


If you've got rats running around the garden, the likelihood is there's going to be a burrow somewhere. Rats love to dig and burrow and they typically do this alongside solid objects or structures like garage foundations, shed bases, patios and pathways. These are the places to check out if you believe there could be rats nearby. Useful for a nesting place, food storage and shelter, rat burrows are excavated into extensive systems which can even cause damage if something isn't done. The access points to burrows are often worn smooth by endless comings and goings, so look out for smooth sided holes next to and under solid surfaces. If you spot holes but are not certain if they are rats, they will commonly be two to four inches in diameter. An easy way to learn if rats currently using the burrow is to throw some debris into the entrance hole and find out if it's been cleared the next day.

Maybe considered by many people as not being so distressing as rats, discovering mice inside your house can result in just as many problems.
