Billingshurst Rat Catchers (RH14): Spotting rats in your garden or property can be quite a horrifying experience to go through even though it isn't so regular an occurrence in Billingshurst in recent times, it's definitely something that happens every once in awhile. Rats tend to breed rather quickly and can cause issues, especially when they are seen in numbers.

Pest Control Quotes

There are actually two types of rat that you may spot in Billingshurst, black rats and common (brown) rats. It is quite unlikely that you will ever come across black rats, and if you have spotted a rat fairly recently it is likely to have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were common at one time and were blamed for the Great Plague, they're rather rare now, though where they do occur they're terrific climbers, have good hearing, and can produce between 20 and 100 offspring every 12 months.

The longest and heaviest of the two rats is the common brown at approximately 9", whilst the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5" and 7". Brown rats cause destruction because they must continuously chew on things to stop their teeth from growing too long. They especially prefer to gnaw at wood.

Rats can cause many issues in businesses and homes around Billingshurst and they spread disease, leave behind droppings, gnaw their way through insulation, woodwork, pipes and wires, and generally cause a nuisance.

Have You Got Rats?

There are various ways that you can tell when you have rats. If you have a notion that there might be rats in your home or business you could keep an eye out for faeces, they look just like large grains of rice and are darkish brown, look out for holes or burrows adjacent to solid surfaces, check for gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, especially in lofts, watch for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, listen for constant scratching noises coming from walls and roofs, particularly during the night, search for signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas.

Rat Poisons

One somewhat unpleasant way to sort out a rat issue is to lay down poison. This is achieved by leaving a bait laced with poison, that is then swallowed by the rat leading to its death a few days later. The correct placing of the poison bait is critical and can lead to the failure or success of this approach. Normally brodifacoum, difenacoum or bromadioline are the poisons used. Dogs and pets may also be killed by ingesting these rat poisons, so be careful. Well known brands of rat poison sold in Billingshurst include: Elixir Gardens, RatKil, Roshield, Propest, Rentokil and Pest Expert. (Tags: Rat Poison Billingshurst, Rat Poisons Billingshurst)
