If you happen to spot rats in Banstead, the probability is that they'll be brown rats, even though there are in fact two species of rat at present living in the British Isles; black (or ship) rats and brown (common) rats.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5" to 7" long, is a little smaller than the brown variety, which attains lengths of almost nine inches and weighs in at around half a kilo. To wear down their continually growing incisor teetn, common brown rats have to keep on chewing things, which explains why they are responsible for so much damage. Woodwork is especially prone to this gnawing.

Rats cause many problems in businesses and homes throughout Banstead and they gnaw their way through pipes, woodwork, wires and insulation, transmit diseases, leave droppings, and generally cause a nuisance. Property owners must always report any sightings of rats to their relevant local authorities.

Rat Prevention

The most effective way to prevent problems with mice and rats is to discourage them from the get go. So, even though you do not presently have a problem with rats, rat prevention has to be on top of your list of priorities. Household rubbish littered around the garden is amongst the principal causes of rat and mouse infestations. You will just encourage rats if you provide them with both the materials and location to build a nest. In addition, you should avoid supplying them with easy foodstuffs by leaving domestic food waste in your garden and putting bird seed feeders out with grain that will just encourage rats.

Rats - Telltale Signs

There are several ways that you can tell when you've got rats. When you've got an inkling that there might be rats in your home or business you can watch out for rub marks on skirtings and walls where greasy fur has left marks, check for gnawing in cables, wood and wires, especially in lofts, look out for holes or burrows next to solid surfaces, keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they are dark brown in colour and look similar to large grains of rice, hunt for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, listen out for scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, in particular during the night.

Rat Burrows

One thing that all rats love to do is dig and burrow, and the place that they most like to burrow is at the side of solid structures and objects like patios, garden shed bases, paths and garage foundations. These are not just straightforward holes, but extensive networks of burrows, created to provide food storage, shelter and nesting. Keep an eye out for holes having smooth edges, which have been rubbed by the frequent motion of these busy pests. When you spot holes but aren't positive that they're made by rats, they will normally be two to four inches across. A smart way to learn if rats still live in that specific burrow is to toss a bit of rubbish into the entrance hole and see whether it has been removed the following day.
