Broughton Astley Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Broughton Astley Rat Catchers (LE9): Although it is not so commonplace in these modern times, discovering a rat in your garden or even inside your house in Broughton Astley isn't a pleasing experience. A single rat sighting might not be that much of a cause for concern, however, if you observe the presence of rats more frequently or see several rats you might be heading for trouble as they reproduce so quickly.

Pest Control Quotes

There are actually 2 types of rat which you may spot in Broughton Astley, black rats and common (brown) rats. It's fairly improbable that you'll ever come across black rats, and if you have encountered a rat just recently chances are it will have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were once common and were to blame for the spread of the Great Plague, they're fairly rare now, but where they are seen they're exceptional climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and can give birth to between twenty and one hundred baby rats each year.

The longest of the two rat varieties is the common brown rat at around 9 inches, while the black rat only measures 5" to 7" long. A great deal of the destruction caused by brown rats is down to the fact that to prevent their incisor teeth from growing too long, they've got to constantly gnaw stuff. Timber is particularly prone to their gnawing.

Rats leave behind droppings, gnaw their way through pipes, wires, insulation and woodwork, spread disease, and basically cause issues in homes and businesses in Broughton Astley. Householders must always report incidences of rats to the local authorities. Additionally you can report a rat problem on the .gov website online HERE.

You could put down poison or traps yourself, you could get hold of the local Broughton Astley environmental health or you can find a rat catcher or pest removal expert.

Rat Prevention Broughton Astley

Dissuading rodents before they even show up is actually the simplest way of avoiding such problems. Therefore, deterring rodents should be something to keep in mind even though you don't have problems with rats at present. One of the main factors that cause rat infestations is domestic rubbish in gardens. Providing both the place and materials for nests will achieve nothing but attract them. In addition, you should avoid providing easy foodstuffs by leaving domestic food scraps around and putting bird seed feeders out with grain that's only going to encourage rats.

Rat Poisons

Poisoning is perhaps one of the more unpleasant methods by which to get rid of rats. This is typically achieved by setting a poisoned bait, that is subsequently eaten by a rat causing its death within a few days. A sizable accumulation of rats can be eliminated with this strategy as long as the bait is set properly. Noxious chemicals that are utilized in making rat poisons include: bromadioline, difenacoum or brodifacoum. Be extremely careful to keep these poisons out of reach of cats and dogs. Brands of rat poison in Great Britain include the likes of: Rentokil, RatKil, Elixir Gardens, Roshield, Pest Expert and Propest. (Tags: Rat Poison Broughton Astley, Rat Poisons Broughton Astley)

Spotting Rats

If you have a notion you might have rats in your business or property, there are several ways that you're able to tell. You should watch out for rub marks on skirting boards and walls where greasy fur has left marks, keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they look just like large grains of rice and are dark brown in colour, search for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, listen closely for scratching noises coming from lofts and walls, particularly during the night, pay attention to gnaw marks in wires, cables and wood, particularly in attics, be on the lookout for holes or burrows close to solid objects.

Rat Traps Broughton Astley

Rat Traps

One way that you can take care of a rat issue is by using rat traps. Rat traps may be designed to exterminate a rat or to humanely capture a rat for release later. The capture type are the best alternative for individuals who don't like to think of animals hurt in any way, shape or form, even vermin. If you check around you will get lots of varying designs such as: cage traps, enclosed poison traps, electronic rat traps and spring loaded bait traps.


Digging and burrowing is something that all rats really like to do and its next to and under solid structures and objects like garage foundations, shed bases, walkways and terraces where they predominantly prefer to dig. These are not often just simple holes, but substantial networks of burrows, designed to provide shelter, nesting and food storage. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is often a hole with smooth sides next to a solid surface, where the movement of hairy creatures have polished and rubbed the entrance. Generally about two to four inches in diameter, entrances to burrows are fairly easy to identify. It's possible to find out if rats are about by partially blocking up the entrance to find out whether they return and remove it.

Rat Sightings - Reporting

We touched on this topic previously, so now I'll go into it a bit more. The local environmental health is the place to send a report if you witness rats in a public space, in a neighbours garden or in your own garden. Occasionally local councils provide a free service for dealing with rats but payment is often required for most infestations like bed bugs, wasps and cockroaches. You can check out the Government (.gov) webpage HERE to report rat infestations. You are obviously able to organize a local rat catcher to come over and sort out the issue by clicking HERE.
