Bromyard Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Bromyard Rat Catchers (HR7): Finding rats in your garden or home can be quite a shocking thing to go through even though it isn't such a frequent occurrence in Bromyard these days, it's definitely not unusual. Rats tend to breed very quickly and are likely to cause issues, especially when their numbers spiral out of control. An individual sighting of a solitary rat may not be all that much of an issue, however if you're seeing them often it's best to report it.

Pest Control Quotes

If you spot rats in Bromyard, the chances are that they are going to be common brown rats, though there are actually 2 types of rat currently living in the United Kingdom; brown (or common rats) and black (or ship rats). As you might be aware ship rats were blamed for the Great Plague of the 17th Century at which time they were fairly widespread. Black rats are relatively scarce now but in fact neither species is a native of the United Kingdom, both coming from Asia.

Rat Catchers Bromyard HR7

The longest and heaviest of the two rat species is the common brown at about 9 inches, whilst the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5" and 7". Most of the damage and destruction caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to prevent their teeth from getting too long, they have to constantly chew on stuff. Timber is especially vulnerable to their gnawing.

Rat infestations cause all kinds of issues for home owners and businesses in and around Bromyard, they spread disease, leave behind droppings, gnaw through pipes, insulation, wires and woodwork, and contaminate foodstuffs. The local authorities should really be advised when there are sightings of rats. Or post a report recording incidences of rats and pests on the .gov website HERE, which should be passed onto the relevant local authorities.

What Attracts Rats?

Although some people in Bromyard might think they are quite cute with their twitchy whiskers, pointy faces and furry bodies, mice and rats are not animals that you want to have living in your house or garden, and they can actually be dangerous. By gnawing through wood, plastic, electric cables and insulation materials, mice and rats can cause accidents and in particular electrical fires. More than thirty different sorts of disease can be spread by rats and mice including bubonic plague, salmonella, Weil's disease, rat bite fever, listeria, toxoplasmosis, typhus, tularemia and trichinosis. So, listed here are just some of the things that are going to attract rats and mice to your garden or home:

  • WATER - Busy little rats and mice have to drink like any other living creature, consequently water sources like seeping sprinkler systems, pet bowls, leaking pipes and birdbaths are a big enticement for these unwelcome pests.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Rats and mice can crawl through the tiniest of cracks and holes, so keep an eye out for gaps around crawl spaces, air vents, doors and piping.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter in an attic, storage shed or basement will be particularly attractive to rodents, especially if there's a food source close by.
  • FOOD - Food that is left discarded or lying around is one of the primary attractions for mice and rats.
  • COMPOST/PET WASTE - Incredibly piles of compost and even pet waste can attract rodents - there are a few tasty morsels hiding in there!
  • TRASH/RUBBISH - Accumulations of garbage and garden rubbish piled up on your property (particularly in the garden) will unquestionably attract rodents.

Types of Rat

There are only two species of rat that you could encounter in Bromyard, Herefordshire or in fact anywhere else in Britain. They are the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

The Brown Rat

In Bromyard, the remainder of the UK and Europe the commonest species of rat is the brown rat (sewer rat, street rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) or common rat), this is what you'll most likely spot in your garden or home. This brown or grey coloured rodent grows to lengths of four to nine inches (plus tail) and weight about 140-500g. Although at one time believed to have originated in Norway (hence its name), it's now understood to have come from China or at least Central Asia. Brown rats have good hearing but poor eyesight, they dig burrows and climb effectively, they are omnivores but prefer cereals and grains, the females often reproduce 5 litters of up to 14 young every year.

The Black Rat

Originating from India and Southeast Asia the black rat, (Rattus Rattus), roof rat or ship rat is also not a native of Great Britain or Europe. It's believed to have spread through Europe at the time of the Roman Empire, very likely traveling in shipments of spices. The black rat was once widespread in Great Britain but was basically driven out by the larger brown rat and is now not often seen. Growing to lengths of 5" to 7", the black rat weighs in at around 75-230g. Well known for passing on bubonic plague, salmonella, Weil's disease, rat bite fever, listeria, toxoplasmosis, typhus, tularemia and trichinosis, black rats are prolific spreaders of disease and pathogens.

Ultrasonic Pest Control Bromyard

To repel pests like mice, rats, insects, and other creatures, ultrasonic pest control employs high-frequency sound waves. The technology's mechanism is to emit sound waves that are above the human hearing range but within the audible range of pests. The waves produce a disorienting and uncomfortable setting for pests, which disrupts their ability to move around and interact with each other.

The effectiveness of ultrasonic pest control devices is open to debate, despite their ease of use and low-cost. The impact of these devices on pest control is disputed due to varying results in studies, with some demonstrating successful repulsion for certain pests while others indicating little to no effect. The effectiveness of ultrasonic pest control is contingent on variables like the species of pest, the treated area's dimensions, and other environmental factors. Before choosing a pest control technique, it is important to consider all options and consult with a professional, as with any other method. To achieve the best results, ultrasonic pest control should be used alongside other pest management techniques, rather than as the only method.

Reporting Rats and Pests

We briefly outlined this subject before, so here we will go into more detail. The local authority Environmental Health Department is the place to send a report should you spot rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public area. Sometimes your local council will offer a free service for clearing rats but charges are usually made for many other pests such as cockroaches, bed bugs and wasps. You can visit the Government (.gov) webpage HERE to report sightings of rats. Click HERE to organize a local rat catcher and get the situation tackled right away.

Diseases Spread by Rats

It is common knowledge that rats can spread a multitude of diseases to humans, primarily through their faeces, urine and saliva. Leptospirosis, hantavirus, salmonellosis, and rat-bite fever are some of the diseases that can be caught by humans from rats.

Through a rat bite or scratch, the bacterial infection rat-bite fever can cause fever, vomiting and rashes. The respiratory system can be severely affected by hantavirus, potentially resulting in fatality. The bacterial infection called leptospirosis can cause flu-like symptoms and, in severe cases, lead to the failure of the kidneys and liver. Diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever are symptoms of the bacterial infection known as salmonellosis.

It is important to take steps to prevent and control rat infestations in order to reduce the risk of these diseases. Fleas and ticks, which are carried by rats, can also transmit diseases to humans, such as typhus and Lyme disease.
