Rat Prevention Bellshill

Discouraging mice and rats before they even become a nuisance is certainly an effective way to avoid such issues. For this reason, even though you don't currently have a rat problem, rat prevention has to be right at the top of your list of priorities. Among the primary reasons for rat and rodent infestations is domestic waste littering gardens. Supplying them with both the place and materials to build nests will achieve nothing but attract them. When there's also a lot of food on offer the rats think they're in heaven, so be warned that many bird feeders can attract rats, particularly when they are susceptible to spilling over, and domestic household waste food shouldn't be left lying around.

Rat Bite Wounds

Although not that common in the United Kingdom, bites from rats do occur on the odd occasion, and in some instances they can be serious. When rats are cornered or feel scared, they can bite humans, thus should you find yourself in a situation like that, stay well out of the way and leave an easy exit route.

You'd think that folks would be cautious about placing their hand inside a rat's cage, yet as rats are often kept as pets, this is an increasing cause of rat bites. Rat bites aren't necessarily serious, but should be avoided where possible, and they can turn nasty or even fatal if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). If it is not treated appropriately "rat bite fever" can lead to death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever - A number of symptoms can be experienced by someone with "rat bite fever" including:

  • Vomiting
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Pain
  • Fever
  • Rashes

You should immediately wash the affected area with warm water, if you receive a rat bite, then put on an antibiotic ointment to the bite area, and cover it with a clean, sterile gauze or bandage. Even if the bite doesn't seem to be that major, you should make an emergency appointment with your GP or head straight to the closest A&E. If you have not had a tetanus vaccine in the last five years or so, it might be sensible to get one of these as well - the hospital will most likely do this as routine.

Rat Poisons

Laying poison is perhaps one of the more horrible methods by which to eradicate rats and rodents. Wholewheat grains are laced using a poisoned chemical and left for rats to eat, it takes only a few days for them to die. When its placed in the appropriate spot in or near an area where rats have been seen, this poison can pretty rapidly exterminate a large number of rats. One or more of 3 main compounds that are used in making rat poison are: bromadioline, brodifacoum or difenacoum. Rat poison does not just harm rats, dogs, cats and other pets could also be affected, therefore care must always be taken in its use. Brands of rat poison sold in the UK include: Pest Expert, Roshield, Propest, Elixir Gardens, Rentokil and RatKil. (Tags: Rat Poison Bellshill, Rat Poisons Bellshill)
