Pest Control Quotes

If you do happen to discover rats in Caistor, the likelihood is that they are going to be brown rats, although there are actually two species of rats presently living in Great Britain; black (or ship) rats and brown (or common) rats. As you could be aware black rats were the cause of the Great Plague (17th C) and at that time they were very widespread. Black rats are relatively rare now but in fact neither species is native to Great Britain, both of them coming from Asia.

The largest of the two rat breeds is the brown at about 9 inches, whilst the black only grows to between 5" and 7". To wear down their continually growing incisor teetn, brown rats must keep gnawing at things, which is the reason they're the cause of so much damage. Their attention is usually concentrated on things made of timber.

Types of Rat

You are only likely to encounter two breeds of rat in Caistor, Lincolnshire and anywhere in Great Britain. These are the Brown Rat and the Black Rat.

The Brown Rat

The brown rat (street rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), sewer rat or common rat) is the most frequently seen rat in the British Isles and all over Continental Europe (also North America). The brown rat (it can often be grey in colour) is commonly 4-9" long (excluding the tail) and weighs in at 140 - 500 grammes. It is almost always found wherever human beings are living. Although at one time considered to have originated in Norway (hence its name), it's now known to have initially come from China/Central Asia. Brown rats dig a lot and climb well, they have excellent hearing but poor eyesight, the female rats can produce up to 5 litters every year, they will feed on pretty much anything (they are omniverous) but favour cereals and grains.

The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus)

Originating in India the black rat, roof rat or ship rat is also not a native species of Britain or Europe. Believed to have spread when the Roman Empire still existed, this rat possibly reached Europe and Great Britain via shipments of spice. Once common in Great Britain, this rat disappeared when the brown rat took over. Weighing just 75-230g, the black rat grows to a length of five to seven inches. Well known for passing on typhus, trichinosis, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, salmonella, tularemia, toxoplasmosis, listeria and Weil's disease, black rats are notorious spreaders of disease and pathogens.

Rat Burrows

Digging is something that all rats love to do and it is next to solid objects or structures such as garages, terraces, walkways and shed bases that they especially like to dig. These are often not simple holes in the ground, but substantial systems of burrows, made to provide shelter, food storage and a nesting place. The entrances to rat burrows are often worn smooth by the constant movement, so keep your eyes open for holes with smooth sides next to solid surfaces. The entrance holes to rat burrows are normally two to four inches in diameter. It's possible to find out if rats are still about by temporarily blocking the entrance hole to ascertain if they come back and clear it.

Spotting Rats

If you've got an inkling that you may have rats in your business or property, there are various ways in which you could find out. You can keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they look just like large grains of rice and are darkish brown, search for footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, look out for burrows or tunnels next to solid surfaces, listen closely for scratching noises coming from attics and walls, particularly during the night, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, check for gnaw marks in wood, cables and wires, especially in lofts.

Rat Sightings - Reporting

We highlighted this topic earlier, so now we'll go into it a bit more. The local authority Environmental Health Department is the place to send a report should you witness rats in your own garden, in a public place or in a neighbours garden. Occasionally councils will take care of rats cost-free, but if you have other pest infestations such as wasps, cockroaches and bed bugs they will normally charge. You can go to the Government (.gov) webpage HERE to report rat sightings. Click HERE to arrange a local rat catcher and get the matter sorted fast.

Rat Poisons

Laying poison is perhaps one of the more distasteful methods by which to eliminate rat infestations. Rats die just a few days after ingesting a poison laced bait, typically wheat. When it is set in the appropriate position in an area where rats have been seen, poison can fairly swiftly kill a large number of rats. One or more of 3 main compounds that are used in rat poison are: difenacoum, bromadioline or brodifacoum. You have to be extremely careful to keep these poisons out of reach of dogs, cats and other pets. Well known brands of rat poison available in Britain include: Roshield, Elixir Gardens, Rentokil, RatKil, Propest and Pest Expert.

Problems With Moles

Several Caistor rat catchers will also help with moles. Certainly not such detested critters, moles cause completely different issues than rats. The main issue with moles is that they will cause a fair amount of damage to your garden, particularly your lawn. The recognizable sight of piles of earth in the middle of a nicely manicured lawn are plain proof of mole activity. Trapping is undoubtedly the most humane and acceptable solution to remove moles.

Mouse Problems Caistor

Mice can be as much of an issue as having rats, especially if they get into your house. Just like rats, mice leave droppings, breed quickly, contaminate foodstuffs, gnaw at things and are basically a nuisance. Precisely the same approaches are typically used to resolve mouse infestations in Caistor, this means poisoning and setting traps are favoured. If you have a mouse infestation, Caistor rat catchers will be ready to help you fix this problem. Head over to BARK and find a pest controller near you.
