Though neither of the 2 rat types presently seen in the United Kingdom originate from these islands, they have definitely thrived since they got here. The brown rat is particularly commonplace whilst the ship (black) rat isn't so much so nowadays. Both types originated in Asia and made their way to Great Britain on boats (as stowaways).

Signs of Rats

If you've got an idea that you may have rats in your business or home, there are various ways in which you're able to find out. You should be on the lookout for burrows or tunnels alongside solid objects, keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they look similar to large grains of rice and are darkish brown, try to find tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, watch for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, check for gnawing in wires, wood and cables, particularly in attics, listen closely for continual scratching noises emanating from attics and walls, particularly at night.

Problems With Mice

While not quite as shocking as seeing rats scurrying around house or garden, having mice may be nearly as much of a concern. Mice, similar to rats, contaminate foodstuffs, leave droppings, gnaw at stuff and breed rapidly. Exactly the same strategies are normally used to deal with mouse problems in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, this means that poisoning and setting traps are favoured. Whether you have got an infestation of rats or mice, head over to BARK to find a local Ashby-de-La-Zouch pest controller for assistance.

Rat Bite Wounds

Even though they are not one of the most common injuries sustained by people in Britain, every now and then bites from rats certainly do happen, and the implications can sometimes be dangerous. When rats are cornered or feel threatened, they can attack and bite people, therefore if you unfortunately find yourself in a situation like that, stay well out of the way and leave a clear and easy exit route.

Some instances of rat bites arise where rats are being kept as pets, and placing your hand inside a rat's cage could be asking for trouble. Although rat bites are not serious in every case, they can become infected or be fatal if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). If it is not treated rapidly "rat bite fever" has a 10% mortality rate.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever (RBF) - Some of the signs of "rat bite fever" are:

  • Joint Pain
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Muscle Pain
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Rashes
  • Vomiting

In the unlikely circumstance that you ever get a rat bite, you'll need to carefully bathe the wounded area, administer a coating of antibiotic ointment, and cover it with a clean, sterile bandage or gauze. Even if the bite does not appear to be that serious, you need to book an emergency appointment with your GP or head for the nearest A&E department. If it is 5 years or more since you received your last tetanus vaccine, you should get one of those done as well, because rat bites can become a cause of infection.

Rat Prevention Ashby-de-La-Zouch

Dissuading rats and mice before they even appear is certainly the easiest way of avoiding having problems with them. Consequently, rat prevention should be a thing to consider even when you don't have problems with rats at present. Domestic trash cluttering up your garden is one of the major reasons for rat and mouse infestations. Providing them with both the place and materials for a nest will only encourage them. If there is also lots of food on offer the rats imagine they are in heaven, so be mindful that bird seed feeders often attract rats, especially when they are vulnerable to spillages, and household food scraps should never be left lying around.

Burrowing and digging is one thing that rats really like to do and it is next to and beneath solid objects or structures like terraces, garden sheds, paths and garages where they predominantly prefer to dig. These are not often just simple holes, but substantial networks of burrows, built to provide food storage, shelter and nesting. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is usually a hole with smooth sides adjacent to a solid structure, where the movement of furry critters have polished the burrow entrance. The entrances to rat burrows are normally about 2-4 inches across. Toss some debris into the burrow entrance and look the next day to see if it's been moved. This should clarify if rats are still about.
