Rats breed fairly quickly and can cause problems, particularly when their numbers get out of control. An individual incidence of a lone rat won't be much of a concern, but if you're seeing them on a regular basis it's best to take action.

Pest Control Quotes

Though neither of the two rat types presently living in Great Britain originate from these shores, they have certainly made themselves at home. The brown rat is especially common (hence its name) whilst the black rat just isn't so much so these days. Both species came from Asia and made their way to the UK as stowaways on boats.

The black rat at 5 to 7" long, is a little smaller than the brown rat, which reaches a length of almost 9" and weighs in at about half a kilo. To prevent their incisor teeth from growing too long, brown rats need to keep on chewing things, which is the reason they are responsible for such a lot of damage and destruction. Timber is especially vulnerable to their attention.

Species of Rat

There are actually two types of rat that you could come across in Bishopbriggs, Scotland or any place else in Britain for that matter. They are the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The brown rat (Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), street rat, common rat or sewer rat) is the most commonly seen rat in the UK and all across Europe (also North America). The brown rat (it can often be grey) is typically 4-9 inches in length (not including the tail) and weighs in at 140 to 500g. It is usually found wherever human beings are living. This rodent was named Norway Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) since it was assumed to have spread to the UK by ships from Norway. It is now thought to have originated in Central Asia/China. Brown rats dig extensively and climb effectively, they have poor eyesight but an acute sense of hearing, the females can give birth to five litters per year, they will consume more or less any foodstuffs (omnivores) but prefer grains and cereals.

The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus)

The black rat, roof rat or ship rat (Rattus Rattus) is also not native to Great Britain, originating in Southeast Asia. Understood to have spread when the Roman Empire reigned supreme, this rat quite likely reached Continental Europe and the UK in cargoes of spices. The black rat was once widespread in Great Britain but was basically driven out by the brown rat and is now not often seen. Reaching a length of five to seven inches, this rat weighs in at just 75 to 230 grams. Notorious for passing on pathogens and diseases black rats can be accountable for salmonella, rat bite fever, typhus, listeria, Weil's disease, tularemia, toxoplasmosis, bubonic plague and trichinosis.

Rat Traps

Rat Cage

One solution that you may use to take care of rat problems is by the use of rat traps. You will discover different types of rat traps these days, some that exterminate the rat and some that capture the rat for release later. The capture kind of trap are the optimal choice for individuals who don't like to think of creatures being harmed in any way whatsoever, even pests. Available styles of rat trap include the likes of: enclosed poison traps, electronic rat traps, cage traps and spring loaded bait traps.

Molecatchers in Bishopbriggs

Although nowhere near such a common issue nowadays moles can also be controlled by rat catchers. Moles can cause problems in another way to to rats and aren't despised quite so much. Gardens and lawns are mainly at risk of damage if you've got a mole situation. Proof of their activity can be plainly seen in the shape of scattered mounds of earth on nicely manicured lawns. Trapping is far and away the most favourable and humane way to get rid of moles. (Tags: Mole Trapping Bishopbriggs, Mole Catchers Bishopbriggs)

Rat Bites

Although, in the United Kingdom, bites from rats aren't all that commonplace, they do occur on the odd occasion, and the implications can be serious in some scenarios. If you happen to encounter a rat in a confined space, it could attack and bite you if it feels cornered or pressured, therefore leave the creature an easy exit route and try to avoid it.

These sorts of bites occasionally occur when rats are kept as pets, and you're probably asking for trouble if you stick your hand inside a rat's cage, regardless how tame it seems. Rat bites can turn nasty or even life threatening if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), therefore they should be avoided when possible, although of of course rat bites are not always dangerous. "Rat bite fever", if it's left without treatment, has a 10% mortality rate.

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

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

In the unlikely circumstance that you ever get a rat bite, you'll have to carefully bathe the wounded area, put on a layer of antibiotic cream, and wrap it with a clean, sterile gauze or bandage. Even if it does not appear to be that major, you should make an appointment to see your GP or head straight to the nearest A&E department. If you have not been vaccinated against tetanus in the last five years or so, you should also get one of these.

Rats - Telltale Signs

If you've got suspicions you could have rats in your business or home, there are various ways by which you can find out. You could pay attention to gnawing in wood, cables and wires, especially in lofts, search for signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, keep your eyes peeled for rat droppings, they're dark brown in colour and look much like large grains of rice, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirting boards, look out for tunnels or burrows close to solid objects, listen out for continual scratching noises coming from walls and lofts, particularly during the night.
