Cheshunt Rat Catchers (EN7): Whilst it's not so common nowadays, finding rats in your house or garden in Cheshunt just isn't a pleasing experience to go through. A single rat sighting might not be too much of an issue, but, if you see the presence of rats more often or spot multiple rats you could be heading for trouble because they tend to breed so fast.

There are actually two species of rat which you may run into in Cheshunt, brown (or common) rats and black rats. It's rather improbable that you will ever come across black rats, and if you have spotted a rat just recently chances are it'll have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the Great Plague, they're fairly scarce now, but when they are seen they have an acute sense of hearing, are superb climbers, and can produce between twenty and one hundred offspring in a single year.

The largest of the two rat species is the brown rat at around 9 inches, while the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5 and 7 inches. A great deal of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is because to prevent their incisor teeth from getting too long, they must continuously gnaw stuff. Wooden items are particularly vulnerable to this gnawing.

Rats gnaw their way through pipes, wires, insulation and woodwork, leave droppings, transmit diseases, and are basically troublesome in businesses and households throughout Cheshunt. The local authority needs to be notified when there are any incidences of rats. Or otherwise post a report recording pest and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, which is forwarded to the relevant local authority.

Pest Control Cheshunt

You'll often notice the presence of rats not actually by seeing them, but by them indicating their existence in other ways. It is possible you may stumble upon a rat's nest hidden away, you could hear scratching coming from a wall, loft or floor, you may discover droppings on floors or in cupboards or you might spot rat holes chewed into skirting boards or floorboards.

If you want to have this situation dealt with properly you will have to contact a professional. You could get in touch with the local council or get hold of a specialist Cheshunt pest controller or rat catcher for yourself. There are not very many folks nowadays who only specialize in rat problems, you can also give them a call if you've got a problem with a wasp nest in your attic or perhaps moles in your lawn.

Rat Traps Cheshunt: One way that you might take care of a rat issue is by using rat traps. Rat traps may be intended to actually kill a rat or to compassionately imprison a rat for release later. If you are averse to doing harm to animals, perhaps the capture style rat trap would be your appropriate option. The available rat trap types include: electronic rat traps, cage traps, spring loaded bait traps and enclosed poison traps.

Rat Poisons: To some, a distasteful way to eradicate rats is by putting down poison. Rats die several days after eating a poisoned bait, commonly wheat grain. When set in a suitable position in or close to a rat infested area, this poison can quite quickly kill a large number of rats. Typically difenacoum, bromadioline or brodifacoum are the poisons used. You must be careful to keep this away from dogs and pets. Well known brands of rat poison available in the United Kingdom include: Pest Expert, RatKil, Rentokil, Elixir Gardens, Propest and Roshield.

Mole Problems: Several rat catchers in Cheshunt will also help you with mole problems. Moles can cause problems in another way to to rats and are not anywhere near as disliked. The chief issue with moles is that they'll cause damage to your garden, and in particular lawns. Proof of their activity can clearly be spotted in the form of randomly scattered piles of earth on perfectly clipped lawns. Using traps is far and away the most favourable and humane method to get rid of moles. (Tags: Mole Trapping Cheshunt, Molecatchers Cheshunt)

Signs of Rats: When you've got an inkling you might have rats in your home or business, there are various ways by which you can tell. You can watch for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, listen closely for continual scratching noises coming from walls and attics, especially during the night, be on the lookout for burrows or tunnels near to solid objects, check for gnawing in wood, cables and wires, especially in lofts, keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they're dark brown and look similar to large grains of rice, try to find tail trails or footprints on loose soil or in dusty areas.

Burrows: Burrowing and digging is one thing that all rats really like to do and its adjacent to solid structures and objects like terraces, garages, paths and garden shed bases where they particularly prefer to dig. Rats build substantial burrow networks that provide them with a nesting place, food storage and shelter. The entrances to rat burrows are generally worn smooth by frequent ins and outs, so keep an eye out for smooth sided holes next to solid structures. The entrances to burrows are normally two to four inches across. A good way to find out if rats are still living in that specific burrow is to throw a bit of stuff into the hole and see whether it has been cleared away the following day.
