Pest Control Quotes

If you do happen to spot rats in Buntingford, the probability is that they will be brown rats, although there are in fact 2 types of rats presently found in the British Isles; black (or ship) rats and brown (common) rats. As you may know ship rats were responsible for the Great Plague (17th C) during which period they were extremely widespread. Black rats are quite scarce now but in fact neither type is a native of the UK, both hailing from from Asia.

The brown rat is bigger than the black rat (Rattus Rattus) and can weigh as much as half a kilo, with a length of around nine inches. A lot of the damage caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to keep their incisors from growing too long, they've got to constantly gnaw on stuff. Woodwork is particularly prone to this attention.

Signs of Rats

There are plenty of ways by which you can find out if you have rats. When you've got an inkling that there could be rats in your home or business you should listen closely for scratching noises coming from attics and walls, in particular at nighttime, try to find footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, keep an eye out for droppings, they are dark brown and look like large grains of rice, pay attention to gnaw marks in wires, wood and cables, particularly in attics, look out for burrows or holes close to solid surfaces.

What Attracts Rats and Mice?

Though some people in Buntingford may think they are rather cute with their twitchy whiskers, pointy faces and furry bodies, mice and rats are not creatures that you want living in your house or garden, and they can actually be dangerous to have around. Mice and rats can cause damage to your house by nibbling through skirting boards, plastic, plasterboard and electric wires, and are quite often responsible for fires and other problems. Between the two mice and rats can spread more than 30 kinds of diseases including things like Weil's disease, listeria, tularemia, salmonella, rat bite fever, typhus, toxoplasmosis, bubonic plague and trichinosis. So, here are just some of the things that are going to attract rats and mice to your home and garden:

  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Incredibly pet waste and even compost heaps can be attractive to rats and mice - there are likely to be some tasty titbits hiding in there!
  • WATER - Active mice and rats have to drink, subsequently water sources such as birdbaths, leaky pipes, pet bowls and seeping sprinkler systems are a big enticement for these unwelcome pests.
  • RUBBISH/TRASH - Accumulations of trash and garden rubbish heaped up on your property (especially in the garden) will certainly attract rodents.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Mice and rats can squeeze through the smallest of holes, so look out for gaps around piping, entrances, grills and crawl spaces.
  • FOOD - Food that is left discarded or lying around is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter in basement, shed or loft will be especially attractive to rodents, especially if there's a food source nearby.
