Anstey Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Anstey Rat Catchers (LE7): Even while it's not such a frequent occurrence in Anstey nowadays, home owners do still have troubles with rats every once in awhile. Seeing a rat in your garden or inside your property is not a good thing to experience, and is enough to give some householders the shivers. Lone rats are unlikely to create very much of an issue, but of course rats tend to reproduce rapidly and may begin to cause problems as soon as their numbers rise.

Pest Control Quotes

There are actually 2 types of rat which you may run into in Anstey, black rats and brown (common) rats. It's quite unlikely that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you have stumbled upon a rat just recently it's likely to have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're pretty rare now, however where they are found they're amazing climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 offspring in just one year.

Rat Catchers Anstey LE7

Brown rats are larger than black rats weighing in at half a kilogram and reaching lengths of nearly 9 inches. Brown rats may cause destruction as they've got to continuously gnaw at stuff to prevent their teeth from growing too much. Woodwork is especially susceptible to their interest.

Rats gnaw through pipes, insulation, woodwork and wires, spread diseases, leave behind droppings, and are typically problematic in homes and business premises in Anstey. Home owners should always report any sightings of rats to the relevant local authority. In addition you can report rat problems on the .gov website HERE.

Anstey Pest Control

It is not purely by sight that you will become aware of the presence of rats, their behaviour is sometimes quite enough to enlighten you. It's possible you could hear noises coming from a loft, floor or wall, you may come across a rat's nest hidden away, you could observe rat holes chewed into skirtings or floorboards or you could start seeing droppings on floor surfaces or in cupboards.

To deal with this problem there are specific approaches that you might consider. You could put poison or traps down yourself, you could retain the services of a rat catcher or pest removal expert or you can get hold of the local Anstey environmental health. In the world today rat catchers usually come under the category of pest control, and pest control companies don't only control rats but also fleas, mice, moles, cockroaches, bedbugs, wasps and all sorts of garden and household pests.

Reporting Rats

We brought up this topic before, so here I'll go into it a bit more. It is always advisable to inform the local authorities if you notice rats in your own garden, in a public space or in a neighbours garden. Occasionally councils will take care of rats cost-free, but when you have other pests for example wasps, cockroaches and bed bugs they will generally charge. Incidences of rats can also be reported via the Government (.gov) webpage HERE. You can needless to say book your own rat catcher to pop in and deal with the issue by clicking HERE.


Burrowing and digging is something that all rats like to do and it's near to solid objects or structures such as garages, terraces, garden shed bases and pathways where they particularly like to dig. These are not often just simple holes, but rather extensive systems of burrows, designed to use as nesting, shelter and food storage. The access points to rat burrows are generally worn smooth by the continuous motion, so look out for smooth sided holes next to solid structures. If you notice holes but are not certain if they are rats, they'll commonly be approximately two to four inches in diameter. You can check if rats are still present by temporarily blocking the entrance to find out whether they come back and clear it away.

Kinds of Rat

There are actually two types of rat that you may come across in Anstey, Leicestershire or in fact any place else in Great Britain. The Brown Rat and the Black Rat.

The Brown Rat

In Anstey, the remainder of the UK and Continental Europe the most prevalent species of rat is the brown rat (Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), common rat, street rat or sewer rat), this is the kind you will sometimes see in your garden or property. This brown or grey coloured creature grows to lengths of 4-9" (plus the tail) and weighs in at 140-500g. Even though once thought to have spread from Norway, it's now understood to have first come from China/Central Asia. Brown rats are omniverous (feed on virtually anything) although they prefer to eat grains and cereals, they have bad eyesight but excellent hearing, the females attain sexual maturity in just five weeks and are able to produce 5 litters per year (with up to 14 pups in each litter), they dig extensive burrows and climb well.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

Originating in Southeast Asia (probably India) the black rat, ship rat or roof rat (Rattus Rattus) is also not a native of the United Kingdom or Europe. Believed to have spread at the time of the Roman Empire, this rat quite possibly reached Continental Europe and Britain hidden in spice shipments. Quite scarce now in the British Isles, this rat was pretty much replaced by the larger brown rat. Reaching a length of 5-7 inches, the black rat weighs about 75g to 230g. Known to pass on bubonic plague, rat bite fever, toxoplasmosis, trichinosis, listeria, tularemia, Weil's disease, salmonella and typhus, black rats are prolific spreaders of disease and pathogens.
