Broughton Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Broughton Rat Catchers (DN20): While it is not all that commonplace at present, seeing rats in your house or garden in Broughton just isn't a pleasant experience to go through. One sighting of a rat may not be that much of a concern, however, if you witness rats more regularly or notice several rats you might be in for trouble as they tend to breed so quickly.

Pest Control Quotes

There are 2 types of rat which you may come across in Broughton, black rats and common (brown) rats. Its pretty improbable that you will ever see a black rat, and if you've stumbled upon a rat just recently its likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were the cause of the Great Plague, they're quite scarce now, but where they do occur they've got good hearing, are superb climbers, and can produce between twenty and one hundred offspring each year.

Rat Catchers Broughton Lincolnshire DN20

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches, is a little smaller than the brown variety, which grows to a length of almost nine inches and weighs about half a kilogram. Most of the destruction caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to prevent their teeth from growing too much, they must constantly gnaw stuff. Rats especially like to gnaw on woodwork.

Rats leave behind droppings, transmit disease, gnaw through insulation, wires, pipes and woodwork, and basically cause a nuisance in businesses and households throughout Broughton. The local council must be notified whenever rats are causing problems. Or alternatively post a report recording incidences of rats and pests on the .gov website HERE, which will be passed onto the relevant local authority.

You could get in touch with the local authority or call in an expert Broughton rat catcher or pest controller yourself.

Problems With Mice in Broughton

Mice could be equally as much of a problem as rats, particularly when they get inside your house. Like rats, mice leave droppings, contaminate food, breed quickly, gnaw at stuff and are generally an annoyance. Also, just like rats, poisoning and setting traps are the favourite methods for dealing with mouse problems in Broughton. If you have an infestation of mice, Broughton rat catchers should be happy to help you fix this problem. Check out BARK and get a pest control expert near you.

Problems With Moles

A few Broughton rat catchers will also help with moles. Moles may cause issues in a different way to rats and aren't disliked quite so much. It's outside in your garden where you could have troubles with moles, and lawns in particular are at risk of damage. The familiar sight of earth mounds scattered all over a nicely manicured lawn are plain evidence of mole activity. Capturing with traps is by far the most humane and acceptable method to reduce the incidence of moles. (Tags: Molecatchers Broughton, Mole Trapping Broughton)

Rat Prevention Broughton

Discouraging rats and mice before they even show up is definitely the simplest way of avoiding such issues. So, deterring rodents has to be a thing to consider even if you don't currently have a rat problem. One of the main causes of rat infestations is domestic household rubbish littering gardens. Providing both the place and materials for nests will only encourage them. When there's also enough food on offer the rats think they're in heaven, so be mindful that many bird seed feeders attract rats, in particular when they are vulnerable to overflowing, and domestic household food scraps shouldn't be accessible.

What Attracts Rats?

While some people in Broughton may think they're quite cute with their twitching whiskers, pointy faces and furry bodies, mice and rats are not animals that you want in your house or garden, and can actually be dangerous to have around. Mice and rats can sometimes cause fires and other accidents in homes and business premises in Broughton by nibbling through insulation materials, electrical wiring, skirting boards and plastic. Between them rats and mice can spread over 30 forms of diseases including trichinosis, Weil's disease, typhus, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, listeria, salmonella, bubonic plague and rat bite fever. Among the things that will certainly attract mice and rats to your garden and home are:

  • FOOD - Food that's left discarded or lying around is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.
  • CLUTTER - General jumble and clutter in an outbuilding, basement or loft space will be particularly attractive to rats and mice, particularly if there's a source of food close by.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Rats and mice can squeeze through the tiniest of cracks and holes, so be on the lookout for gaps around doorways, roof vents, crawl spaces and pipework.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Remarkably pet waste and even heaps of compost can be attractive to mice and rats - there will be some tasty morsels hidden in there!
  • RUBBISH - An accumulation of garbage and garden rubbish piled up on your property (especially in the garden) will attract rats and mice.
  • WATER - Active rats and mice have to drink like any other living creature, which means that water sources such as pet bowls, dripping sprinkler systems, birdbaths and leaking pipes are a big attraction for these unwanted pests.

Signs of Rat Infestations

When you've got suspicions that you could have rats in your property or business, there are various ways by which you could tell. You should watch out for rub marks on skirting boards and walls where greasy fur has left marks, try to find signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas or on loose soil, listen closely for scratching noises coming from lofts and walls, in particular during the night, keep your eyes peeled for rat droppings, they look much like large grains of rice and are darkish brown, check for gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, especially in lofts, look out for burrows or tunnels adjacent to solid objects.

Rat Burrows

Digging is something that all rats love to do and it's next to and under solid objects or structures like patios, garden shed bases, paths and garages that they predominantly prefer to dig. Rats dig out substantial systems of burrows which are useful for shelter, food storage and nesting. A guaranteed indication of a rat burrow is usually a smooth sided hole next to a solid structure, where the ins and outs of furry creatures have polished the entrance. The entrances to rat burrows are generally 2-4 inches across. Throw some debris into the burrow and check back the following day to determine if it has been cleared. This should show you if rats are still about.

Rat Traps

Rat Traps

Whether you are planning to tackle the rat issue yourself or if you are calling in professional rat catchers, one of the ways to do this is to use rat traps. There are actually many different sorts of rat trap nowadays, some of which exterminate rats and others which imprison the rat for later release. Folks who don't like to think of animals of any sort hurt, will unquestionably opt for the capture style of trap.
