Bebington Rat Catchers (CH62): Whilst it isn't all that commonplace at present, seeing rats in your garden or house in Bebington is not really a pleasing experience. One sighting of a rat should not be that much of a concern, however, if you observe rats more regularly or notice more than one you could potentially be in for trouble as they tend to breed so rapidly.
Whilst neither of the 2 rat breeds at present living in the United Kingdom are native to these islands, they have certainly become well established. The brown rat is particularly commonplace while the ship (black) rat isn't so much so these days. Both of these varieties came from Asia and made their way to the British Isles on boats.
The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5 to 7 inches, is smaller than the brown variety, which reaches lengths of nearly 9 inches and weighs around 500g. A great deal of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their teeth from growing too much, they have to continuously gnaw on things. Their gnawing is often focused on things made out of wood.
Rats spread disease, gnaw their way through pipes, insulation, wires and woodwork, leave droppings, and generally cause issues in businesses and households throughout Bebington. The local council ought to be advised when there are any incidences of rats. Or report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, which is forwarded to the relevant local authorities.
It isn't only by sight that you'll become aware of the existence of rats, their behaviour is often enough to give warning. Perhaps you might uncover a rat's nest in some hidden location, you might observe holes gnawed into floorboards or skirting boards, you may hear scratching coming from a floor, wall or loft or you might find droppings on floor surfaces or in cupboards.
To take care of this situation there are several approaches you could consider. You could put poison or traps down yourself, you could retain the services of a pest controller who specialises in rat removal or you could get in touch with the local Bebington environmental health. Nowadays rat catchers commonly come under the category of pest control, and pest elimination companies not only control rats but additionally moles, mice, fleas, wasps, bedbugs, cockroaches and all kinds of garden and domestic pests.

Rat Traps BebingtonOne way that you can sort out a rat issue is to use rat traps. Nowadays there are many different styles of rat trap to choose from, supplying you with a range of capture solutions.

The available kinds of rat traps include: electronic rat traps, spring loaded bait traps, enclosed poison traps and cage traps.
Checking for RatsThere are several ways by which you can find out when you have rats. When you have your suspicions that there could be rats in your business or home you could keep an eye out for droppings, they are darkish brown and look similar to large grains of rice, try to find footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, look out for holes or burrows close to solid objects, pay attention to gnaw marks in cables, wires and wood, especially in lofts, listen out for constant scratching noises coming from walls and attics, in particular during the night.
BurrowsBurrowing is something that all rats love to do and it's at the side of solid structures and objects such as garage foundations, pathways, terraces and garden sheds where they particularly like to dig. They dig out extensive burrow networks that provide a nesting place, food storage and shelter. A certain indication of a rat burrow is usually a smooth sided hole by the side of a solid surface, where the coming and going of furry critters have polished and rubbed the entrance hole. If you notice holes but are not certain that they are made by rats, they'll usually be approximately 2-4 inches in diameter. Chuck some debris into the entrance hole and check the following day to find out if it has been moved. This can tell you if the rats are still living there.
