Blacon Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Blacon Rat Catchers (CH1): Although its not that commonplace these days, finding a rat in your house or garden in Blacon isn't a nice thing to go through.

If you do notice rats in Blacon, the likelihood is that they will be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), even though there are in fact two sorts of rats currently living in Great Britain; black (ship) rats and brown (or common) rats. As you may perhaps know black rats were the cause of the Great Plague (17th C) and at that time they were quite widespread. Black rats are quite rare now but in fact neither breed is native to the British Isles, both originally from from Asia.

The largest and heaviest of the 2 rat breeds is the common brown rat at about nine inches, whilst the black only grows to between 5" and 7". To stop their incisors from getting too long, brown rats need to keep gnawing at things, which is the reason they are the cause of such a lot of damage. Their gnawing is often focused on objects made of timber.

Householders must always report incidences of rats to the local authority. Or perhaps report incidences of rats and other pest problems on the .gov website HERE, which will be passed onto your local authority.

What Attracts Rats and Mice?

Even though some folks in Blacon might think that they're rather cute with their pointy faces, fur covered bodies and twitching whiskers, mice and rats are not creatures that you want to have living in your house or garden, and they can actually be dangerous to have around. Rats and mice can sometimes cause fires and other accidents around the home by chewing through plastic, floorboards, electrical wiring and plasterboard. Between them mice and rats can spread more than thirty kinds of diseases including things like tularemia, listeria, rat bite fever, trichinosis, Weil's disease, typhus, bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis and salmonella. Among the different things that will attract rats and mice to your home and garden are:

  • CLUTTER - General clutter in an attic, shed or cellar will be particularly attractive to rats and mice, particularly if there's a food source nearby.
  • TRASH - An accumulation of trash and garden waste heaped up on your property (particularly in the garden) will attract rodents.
  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Rats and mice can squeeze through the tiniest of holes, so keep an eye out for gaps around pipes, vents, crawl spaces and doors.
  • FOOD - Food that's left lying around or discarded is one of the primary attractions for mice and rats.
  • COMPOST/PET WASTE - Remarkably piles of compost and even pet waste can be attractive to rats and mice - there will be some tasty titbits hidden in there!
  • WATER - Busy little rodents need to drink like any other creature, subsequently sources of water like dripping sprinkler systems, birdbaths, leaky pipes and pet water bowls are a big enticement for these unwelcome pests.

Signs of Rats

Problems With Mice
