Coppull Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Coppull Rat Catchers (PR7): Seeing rats in your home or garden could be quite an alarming experience to go through and whilst it's not such a common occurrence in Coppull in recent times, it is definitely not unheard of. Rats tend to breed rather quickly and can cause issues, especially when they are present in numbers. An individual incidence of a lone rat will possibly not be that much of a problem, however if you're seeing them regularly you need to find a solution.

Pest Control Quotes

There are actually two types of rat which you might spot in Coppull, brown (common) rats and black rats. Its fairly improbable that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you have stumbled upon a rat recently chances are it'll have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're rather rare now, but when they are found they have good hearing, are superb climbers, and the females can produce between twenty and one hundred offspring every twelve months.

The biggest of the 2 rats is the common brown at around 9 inches, whilst the black rat only grows to between 5" and 7". A great deal of the damage and destruction caused by brown rats is down to the fact that to keep their incisor teeth from growing too long, they must continually gnaw on things. Their gnawing is frequently concentrated on things made of timber.

An infestation of rats can cause lots of different issues for business owners and householders throughout Coppull, they will transmit disease, gnaw their way through insulation, wires, woodwork and pipes, leave behind droppings, and get up to all sorts of mischief. Householders should always report rat sightings to their local authority. You can also report rat and pest sightings on the .gov web page HERE.

Pest Control in Coppull

You don't need to physically witness rats to confirm that they are there, due to the fact that there are a lot of telltale signs that may betray their activity. It is possible you could find a rat's nest hidden away, you could hear noises coming from a loft, wall or floor, you could detect droppings on floors or in cupboards or you might encounter rat holes gnawed into floorboards or skirting boards.

To manage this issue there are two or three routes that you could consider. You could lay down traps or poison yourself, you could find a rat removal specialist or you can speak to the local Coppull environmental health. There aren't all that many people these days who only specialize in rat problems, you can also bring them in if you have moles causing damage to your lawn or perhaps a wasps nest in your walls.

Rat Burrows

A thing that all rats love to do is dig and burrow, and the location where they most like to burrow is adjacent to solid structures and objects such as garden sheds, pathways, patios and garages. Rats create extensive systems of burrows that are useful for a nesting place, shelter and food storage. Look out for holes with smooth edges, which may have been rubbed by the frequent motion of these busy animals. The entrances to rat burrows are commonly two to four inches across. Chuck some stuff into the burrow entrance and check back the next day to determine if it has been moved. This can show if rats are still about.

Rat Prevention Coppull

The most effective way to stop issues with mice and rats is not to encourage them from the beginning. So, even though you do not currently have a rat problem, rat prevention has to be extremely high on your list of priorities. Among the main causes of rat and rodent infestations is domestic household trash littering gardens. You'll do nothing but encourage them if you give them both the materials and location to build a nest. When there's also enough food available your rats will be in paradise, so keep in mind that bird seed feeders often attract rats, especially when they are prone to spilling over, and household food scraps shouldn't be accessible.

What Attracts Rats and Mice?

Regardless of their seemingly cute look, with their pointy faces, twitchy whiskers and fur covered bodies, rats and mice can be dangerous and are definitely not creatures that you want to be living in your house or garden in Coppull. Rats and mice can cause damage to your house by chewing through plastic, wood, electric wiring and insulation materials, and are often to blame for fires and other accidents. More than 30 different sorts of disease can be spread by mice and rats including bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis, listeria, tularemia, Weil's disease, rat bite fever, salmonella, typhus and trichinosis. A variety of different things will attract mice and rats to your garden and home including:

  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Incredibly compost heaps and even pet waste can attract rats and mice - there will be plenty of tasty titbits hiding in there!
  • RUBBISH - An accumulation of trash and garden waste piled up on your property (particularly in the garden) will surely attract rodents.
  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Rats and mice can crawl through the smallest of holes, so look out for gaps around plumbing, roof vents, doors and crawl spaces.
  • WATER - Mice and rats need to drink, therefore water sources like pet water bowls, seeping sprinkler systems, birdbaths and leaky pipes are a big temptation for these pests.
  • CLUTTER - General jumble and clutter in an outbuilding, basement or loft will be particularly attractive to rats and mice, especially if there's a source of food close by.
  • FOOD - Food that's left discarded or lying around is one of the principal attractions for rats and mice.

Rat Bites

Whilst not all that commonplace in Coppull, bites from rats do happen periodically, and in certain circumstances they can be dangerous. If you happen to stumble upon a rat in a confined area, it could attack and bite you if it is threatened or cornered, therefore leave the creature an easy exit route and try to avoid it at all costs.

Rat bites occasionally occur in properties where rats are being kept as pets, and shoving your hand in a rat's cage is definitely an action to be avoided. While rat bites aren't dangerous in every case, they must be avoided when possible, and can turn nasty or even life threatening if they turn into "rat bite fever". "Rat bite fever", if left without treatment, can result in death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever - "Rat bite fever" can have various signs and symptoms, including:

  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Fever
  • Headaches
  • Redness or Swelling
  • A Rash
  • Muscle Pain
  • Vomiting

You should promptly wash the wound with warm water, if you are bitten by a rat, and apply an antibiotic ointment, and cover it with a clean, sterile plaster or bandage. You need to make an emergency appointment with your doctor, or head to the closest A&E, even if it does not appear to be that severe. If you've not had a tetanus vaccination in the last five years, it would be sensible to get one of these as well - an A&E nurse will probably do this routinely.
