If you happen to notice rats in Barrow upon Soar, the probability is that they're going to be brown rats, although there are in fact 2 sorts of rat presently found in Great Britain; brown (common rats) and black (ship). As you may perhaps know black rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague of the 17th Century and at that time they were really widespread. Black rats are relatively rare nowadays and in fact neither species is native to the British Isles, both of them hailing from from Asia.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5 to 7 inches, is a bit smaller than the brown, which reaches lengths of nearly nine inches and weighs in at about half a kilogram. The majority of the destruction attributable to brown rats is due to the fact that to prevent their incisors from growing too long, they have to continually gnaw things. They especially prefer to gnaw at timber.

What Attracts Mice and Rats?

With their furry bodies, twitchy whiskers and pointy faces, some people may find mice and rats to be cute, however they're not the type of creatures that you want to have living in your house or garden in Barrow upon Soar, and can be more dangerous than you'd imagine. By nibbling through plasterboard, electrical cables, floorboards and plastic, rats and mice can cause electrical fires and other accidents. Between them mice and rats can spread more than 30 types of diseases including salmonella, trichinosis, toxoplasmosis, rat bite fever, Weil's disease, listeria, typhus, bubonic plague and tularemia. So, below are just a few of the things that will attract mice and rats to your garden and home:

  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Rats and mice can squeeze through the smallest of cracks and holes, so be on the lookout for gaps around roof vents, doors, plumbing and crawl spaces.
  • FOOD - Food left lying around or discarded is one of the main attractions for rats and mice.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter and jumble in gardenshed, loft or basement will be particularly attractive to rodents, especially if there's a source of food nearby.
  • WATER - Active rats and mice need to drink, therefore sources of water such as pet bowls, birdbaths, leaking pipes and seeping sprinkler systems are a big temptation for these unwelcome pests.
  • TRASH - An accumulation of junk and garden waste piled up on your property (especially in the garden) will surely attract rodents.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Incredibly piles of compost and even pet waste can attract rodents - they'll find some tasty titbits hidden in there!

Types of Rat

You are only likely to come across two breeds of rat in Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire or anywhere in the United Kingdom. The Brown Rat and the Black Rat.

The Brown Rat

The brown rat (Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), common rat, street rat or sewer rat) is the most frequently seen rat in Britain and all across Continental Europe (also North America). The brown rat (it can sometimes be grey in colour) is generally 4" - 9" in length (without the tail) and weighs in at 140 - 500 grammes. It usually lives wherever people are living. Now thought to have originally come from Central Asia, it was once presumed to have come from Norway (hence its name). Brown rats are omniverous (feed on pretty much anything) although their favourite is grains and cereals, they have an acute sense of hearing but poor eyesight, the female rats reach sexual maturity in 5 weeks and can have 5 litters per year (with as many as 14 kittens in each litter), they burrow extensively and climb effectively.

The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus)

Also not native to Great Britain, the black rat, (Rattus Rattus), roof rat or ship rat initially arrived in Europe from Southeast Asia. Believed to have spread when the Roman Empire still existed, this rat probably reached Continental Europe and Great Britain inside spice shipments. Fairly rare now in the UK, this rat was largely replaced by the larger brown rat. This rat gets to a length of 5" to 7" and weights of 75-230g. Black rats are known to spread a variety of diseases, in particular salmonella, trichinosis, toxoplasmosis, rat bite fever, Weil's disease, listeria, typhus, bubonic plague and tularemia.

Problems With Moles

Barrow upon Soar rat catchers are often contacted to take care of another issue, namely moles. Moles cause problems in different ways to rats and are not quite so detested. The primary issue with moles is that they'll do a fair amount of damage to your garden, and in particular lawns. The sight of heaps of earth scattered all over a nicely trimmed lawn are clear proof of such activity. Trapping is certainly the most acceptable and humane way to get rid of moles.

Rat Poisons

Putting down poison is one of the more unpleasant ways to eradicate rats and rodents. A rat dies just a few days after ingesting a poison laced bait, typically wheat grain. The positioning of the rat poison is critical and will be responsible for the success or failure of this process. Usually bromadioline, brodifacoum or difenacoum are the poisons used. Be very careful to keep these poisons away from cats and dogs. Rat poison brands sold in the UK include: Roshield, RatKil, Propest, Pest Expert, Rentokil and Elixir Gardens.

Rat Traps Barrow upon Soar

Rat Cage

One technique that you can use to sort out rat problems is to use rat traps. Rat traps may be designed to exterminate rats or to humanely imprison a rat for later release. The capture kind are the perfect choice for people who don't like to think of animals harmed in any way whatsoever, even pests. The available sorts of rat trap include the likes of: electronic rat traps, spring loaded bait traps, enclosed poison traps and cage traps.

Rat Prevention Barrow upon Soar

The most effective way to stop problems with rats and mice is to discourage them to start with. Consequently, even if you do not currently have a rat problem, deterring rats and mice ought to be right at the top of your priority list. Amongst the main reasons for rat and rodent infestations is domestic household trash in gardens. Providing both the place and materials for a nest will achieve nothing but encourage them. Also, you should refrain from providing easily accessible foodstuffs by leaving food scraps lying around and putting bird feeders out with grain that's only likely to encourage rats.

Reporting Rats

I will go into more detail here, even though this topic was highlighted earlier on this page. The local environmental health is where you should send a report if you discover rats in a public area, in your own garden or in a neighbours garden. Occasionally local councils provide a free service for sorting out rats but payment is often required for most other pests for instance wasps, bed bugs and cockroaches. Rat sightings may also be reported using the Government (.gov) website HERE. You can obviously arrange your local rat catcher to come over and deal with the situation by clicking HERE.
