Beaminster Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Beaminster Rat Catchers (DT8): Despite the fact that its not such a frequent problem in Beaminster nowadays, people do have issues with rats every now and then. Spotting rats in your garden or inside your property isn't a nice thing to experience, and is enough to cause some householders nightmares. Single rats are not likely to create that much of a problem, however rats tend to breed quickly and may cause problems as they grow in numbers.

Pest Control Quotes

Whilst neither of the two breeds of rat presently found in the British Isles are native to these islands, they've clearly thrived since they arrived here. The brown rat is especially widespread whilst the black rat isn't so much nowadays. Both types came from Asia and made their way to the United Kingdom on ships.

The longest of the 2 rats is the common brown at around nine inches, while the black only measures 5" to 7" long. Most of the damage and destruction caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to keep their teeth from getting too much, they must continually gnaw things. They particularly like to gnaw on timber.

Rats gnaw their way through insulation, pipes, wires and woodwork, leave droppings, transmit disease, and will generally cause a nuisance in businesses and homes throughout Beaminster. Property owners should report sightings of rats to their relevant local authority. Or alternatively post a report to record pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, which should be forwarded to your local authority.

To tackle this situation there are various routes that you might consider. You could set traps or poison yourself, you could find a pest removal expert or you can speak to your local Beaminster authorities. In these modern times rat catchers commonly come under the umbrella category of pest management, and pest control companies not only remove rats but additionally moles, bedbugs, cockroaches, fleas, wasps, mice and all manner of household and garden pests.

Although not quite so unsettling as uncovering rats in your garden or house, mice may be just as much of a problem. Like rats, mice leave droppings, gnaw at things, breed quickly, contaminate food and are basically a pain. The solutions to mouse problems in Beaminster are largely the same as the ones employed for rats ie trapping and poisoning. Beaminster rat catchers will also be willing to help you with mice infestations, so call one up or check out BARK to get the problem resolved.

Rat Bites

Even though bites from rats are not that common in the United Kingdom, they do happen every now and then and they can be dangerous in some scenarios. Rats can bite humans when they feel cornered or scared, so in confined spaces it is best to keep out of their way, or leave them an easy exit route.

A fair few incidents of rat bites happen when rats are being kept as pets, and sticking your hand in a rat's cage could be asking for trouble. Although they're not necessarily serious, rat bites can turn nasty or even life threatening if they develop into "rat bite fever", so they must be avoided where possible. If left without treatment "rat bite fever" (RBF) has a 10% mortality rate.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever (RBF) - A number of symptoms and signs can be suffered by someone with "rat bite fever" including things like:

  • Fever
  • Headaches
  • Joint Pain
  • Muscle Pain
  • Redness or Swelling
  • A Rash
  • Vomiting

If you're unlucky enough to be bitten by a rat, carefully wash the wound in warm water, put on some antibiotic ointment, and cover the affected area with a bandage. You need to make an emergency appointment with your doctor, or head straight to the closest A&E, even if you think it isn't that severe. It's also recommended to get a tetanus vaccination, particularly if you haven't received one in the last 5 years or so.

Rats - Telltale Signs

There are plenty of ways that you can tell if you've got rats. When you've got an inkling that there might be rats in your business or property you should hunt for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, keep an eye out for droppings, they look like large grains of rice and are dark brown in colour, listen closely for scratching noises coming from walls and lofts, in particular during the night, check for gnawing in wood, cables and wires, particularly in lofts, look out for burrows or holes near to solid objects, watch for rub marks on walls and skirtings where greasy fur has left marks.
