Though neither of the 2 rat species currently seen in the British Isles originate from these islands, they have unquestionably thrived since they arrived here. The brown rat is particularly common (hence its name) while the black (ship) rat is not so much so nowadays. Both of these types originated in Asia and got to the British Isles on boats.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches long, is not as big as the common brown rat, which grows to lengths of nearly 9" and weighs in at close to half a kilogram. A great deal of the damage caused by brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their teeth from getting too long, they have to continually gnaw on stuff. Their interest is often concentrated on stuff that is made out of wood.

Rats leave droppings, spread disease, gnaw their way through insulation, wires, woodwork and pipes, and are typically problematic in businesses and homes in Bamber Bridge.

Rat Poisons

One of the means by which to sort out a rat infestation is to lay down poison. This is generally achieved by carefully positioning a bait laced with poison, that's then ingested by the rat causing its death a few days later. The positioning of the rat poison is very important and may be responsible for the success or failure of this process. Toxic components which are utilized in making rat poison includes: difenacoum, bromadioline or brodifacoum. Pets and birds can also be harmed by ingesting rat poison, so be mindful. Well known brands of rat poison sold in Bamber Bridge include: Propest, RatKil, Roshield, Rentokil, Pest Expert and Elixir Gardens.

What Attracts Mice and Rats?

Even though some people in Bamber Bridge might consider them to be quite cute with their furry bodies, pointy faces and twitchy whiskers, mice and rats are definitely not animals that you want living in your house or garden, and can actually be dangerous to have around. By gnawing through plastic, insulation materials, electrical cables and skirting boards, rats and mice can cause electrical fires and other accidents. More than thirty different kinds of disease are spread by rats and mice including things like salmonella, bubonic plague, tularemia, toxoplasmosis, rat bite fever, listeria, Weil's disease, typhus and trichinosis. Among the different things that will certainly attract rats and mice to your home or garden are:

  • WATER - Active rats and mice need to drink like any other living creature, therefore water sources such as leaky pipes, dripping sprinkler systems, birdbaths and pet water bowls are a big enticement for these pests.
  • COMPOST/PET WASTE - Incredibly pet waste and even compost heaps can be attractive to rats and mice - there are likely to be plenty of tasty morsels hiding in there!
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Rats and mice can squeeze through the tiniest of holes and cracks, so watch out for gaps around piping, entrances, crawl spaces and roof vents.
  • FOOD - Food that's left lying around or discarded is one of the primary attractions for rats and mice.
  • TRASH/RUBBISH - An accumulation of junk and garden rubbish stacked up on your property (particularly in the garden) will unquestionably attract rats and mice.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter in cellar, gardenshed or loft will be particularly attractive to rats and mice, particularly if there's a source of food nearby.

Bamber Bridge Mole Catching

Though no longer such a common problem nowadays moles may also be controlled by rat catchers. By no means such detested critters, moles cause completely different problems to rats. The main problem with moles is that they will cause damage to your garden, and in particular lawns. Evidence of their destructive activity can clearly be spotted in the form of randomly scattered piles of earth on perfectly trimmed lawns. Moles could be caught in traps and then released elsewhere, if you prefer the most humane resolution.

Rat Bite Wounds

While, in the UK, rat bites aren't that common, they certainly do happen every now and then, and the implications can be serious in some instances. When threatened or cornered, rats can attack and bite people, so if you come across one in a confined environment, it is advisable to leave a clear exit route so it can easily escape.

These sorts of bites occasionally occur when rats are being kept as pets, and you're probably looking for trouble if you poke your hand into a rat's cage. Rat bites aren't necessarily serious, though should be avoided where possible, and they can become infected or be life threatening if they turn into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). "Rat bite fever", if left without treatment, can lead to death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever - The signs and symptoms of "rat bite fever" (streptobacillary RBF) can include:

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

You should promptly wash the affected area with warm water, if you receive a rat bite, then put on an antibiotic cream to the bite area, and cover it with a clean, sterile bandage or plaster. You should head straight to your nearest A&E and get it looked at, even if you don't consider it to be that major, or at the very least arrange an appointment with your doctor or GP. If it is more than 5 years since you received your last tetanus jab, you should get one of these done as well, since rat bites can become a cause of infection.

Rat Traps

Rat Cage

Rat traps are one of the strategies for dealing with a rat situation, no matter whether you are handling it yourself or getting the rat catchers in. Rat traps may be designed to exterminate rats or to compassionately imprison a rat for release later. People who hate to see animals of any kind hurt, will doubtless choose the capture style. If you have a look around you should obtain plenty of varying designs such as: spring loaded bait traps, electronic rat traps, cage traps and enclosed poison traps.
