Blackrod Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Blackrod Rat Catchers (BL6): Though it is not that commonplace nowadays, seeing rats in your home or garden in Blackrod isn't a pleasing thing to experience.

Pest Control Quotes

There are two types of rat which you might run into in Blackrod, 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 recently its likely to have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are rather scarce nowadays, however where they do exist they are excellent climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 baby rats every 12 months.

Species of Rat

In Blackrod and throughout Great Britain, there are just 2 breeds of rat that you're likely to encounter. These are the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

In Blackrod, the remainder of Great Britain and Europe the commonest kind of rat is the brown rat (common rat, sewer rat, street rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)), this is the kind you will sometimes see in your garden or house. The brown rat (it can often be grey) is ordinarily 4 to 9 inches in length (excluding the tail) and weighs in at 140 to 500 grams. It always lives wherever humans live. Nowadays thought to have originally come from Central Asia, it was once presumed to have come from Norway (hence the name Rattus Norvegicus). Brown rats are omnivores (consume anything) though their favourite is grain cereals, they've got bad eyesight but an acute sense of hearing, the female rats reach sexual maturity in just five weeks and may have five litters per year (with as many as 14 young in each litter), they dig extensive burrows and climb well.

The Black Rat

The black rat, (Rattus Rattus) roof rat or ship rat is also not a native of Great Britain, originally coming from Southeast Asia (probably India). It's thought to have spread through Europe at the time of the Roman Empire, possibly traveling in cargoes of spice. At one time a common sight in the United Kingdom, this rat disappeared when the brown rat took over. Reaching a length of 5" to 7", the black rat weighs around 75-230 grammes. Known to cause bubonic plague, typhus, salmonella, Weil's disease, listeria, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, trichinosis and rat bite fever, black rats are notorious spreaders of disease and pathogens.

Rat Prevention Blackrod

The simplest way to prevent problems with rats and mice is to discourage them from the outset. Subsequently, rat prevention has to be a thing to think about even when you don't have a rat problem at present. Household trash laying around your garden is amongst the primary causes of rat and mouse infestations. You'll do nothing but encourage them if you supply them with both the materials and location to build a nest. If there is also enough food on offer those rats will be in paradise, so keep in mind that traditional bird feeders often attract rats, in particular when they are susceptible to spillages, and domestic waste food should not be left lying around.
