Grassmoor Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Grassmoor Rat Catchers (S42): Noticing a rat in your home or garden tends to be rather a frightening thing to experience and while it isn't such a regular occurrence in Grassmoor in recent times, its certainly not unheard of. Rats tend to breed fairly quickly and will likely cause problems, especially when their numbers get out of control. Just one incidence of a lone rat won't be much of a worry, but if you're observing them often you should seek help.

Pest Control Quotes

There are 2 species of rat that you may spot in Grassmoor, brown (or common) rats and black rats. It's rather improbable that you'll ever see black rats, and if you have stumbled upon a rat just recently the chances are it will have been one of the more commonplace brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were common at one time and were the cause of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're rather scarce now, however when they are seen they have an acute sense of hearing, are terrific climbers, and the females can produce between twenty and one hundred baby rats in a single year.

Rat Catchers Grassmoor Derbyshire S42

Brown rats are larger than black rats weighing in at half a kilo and reaching a length of approximately 9 inches. Brown rats often cause problems because they have to continually gnaw on stuff to stop their teeth from growing too much. Wooden items are especially prone to this interest.

Rats gnaw their way through pipes, wires, woodwork and insulation, transmit diseases, leave behind droppings, and are typically problematic in businesses and homes in Grassmoor. Property holders must always report any sightings of rats to the local authority. Or otherwise click HERE to report pest and rat problems on the .gov dedicated webpage.

Pest Control Grassmoor Derbyshire

You won't actually need to observe rats to know of their existence, since there are quite a lot of signs that may warn you of their activity. It is possible you might start seeing droppings in cupboards or on the floor, you could uncover a rat's nest in some tucked away location, you could hear noises coming from a floor, wall or loft or you might come across holes chewed into skirting boards or floorboards.

Unless you wish to wait for environmental health to take care of this problem you could always get in touch with local Grassmoor rat catcher or pest controller who'll be qualified in the field of pest removal. In these modern times rat catchers commonly come under the umbrella category of pest control, and pest control businesses don't only remove rats but also mice, cockroaches, wasps, moles, fleas, bedbugs and all manner of household and garden pests.

Diseases Spread by Rats

Rats have been found to disseminate a variety of diseases to humans, largely through the contact with their saliva, urine and faeces. Leptospirosis, hantavirus, rat-bite fever, salmonellosis are diseases that rats have the ability to pass on to humans.

Hantavirus can cause a severe respiratory illness that can be fatal. The bacterial infection salmonellosis can lead to fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Through a rat bite or scratch, the bacterial infection rat-bite fever can cause fever, vomiting and rashes. Leptospirosis is a bacterial infection that can cause flu-like symptoms and even lead to liver and kidney failure.

Reducing the risk of disease transmission requires the control and prevention of rat infestations. Ticks and fleas, which are carried by rats, can also transmit diseases to humans, such as Lyme disease and typhus. In addition, rat droppings and urine have the ability to contaminate food and water sources, thereby further increasing the risk of disease transmission. Rodent-proofing and proper sanitation are effective rat control measures that can aid in the prevention and reduction of rat infestations and the spread of these diseases.

Rat Burrows

Digging and burrowing is a thing that rats really love to do and its close to solid objects or structures like terraces, garden shed bases, walkways and garage foundations where they predominantly prefer to dig. Providing food storage, nesting and shelter, burrows are dug into substantial networks which may even cause damage to structures if something isn't done. The entrances to rat burrows will often be worn smooth by the constant coming and going, so keep an eye out for smooth sided holes alongside solid surfaces. Normally 2-4 inches in diameter, entrances to burrows are not difficult to recognize. A smart way to find out if rats are still in the burrow is to throw some stuff into the entrance hole and see whether it has been cleared the following day.

Reporting Rats

This is a little more detail on a subject that we highlighted previously. It is always advised to inform the local council if you discover rats in a public space, in a neighbours garden or in your own garden. Occasionally local councils will sort out rats cost-free, but if you've got other pest infestations for instance cockroaches, bed bugs and wasps they'll very often require payment. You can check out the .gov webpage HERE to report sightings of rats. You can of course book a local rat catcher to come and sort out the situation by clicking HERE.

What Attracts Mice and Rats?

With their pointy faces, fur covered bodies and twitchy whiskers, some people may find rats and mice to be quite cute, however they're definitely not the type of animals that you want living in your home or garden in Grassmoor, and can be more dangerous than you may think. Rats and mice are known to cause fires and other accidents in homes and business premises in Grassmoor by gnawing through electric wiring, skirting boards, plastic and insulation materials. Between them rats and mice can spread more than thirty forms of diseases including conditions like typhus, Weil's disease, salmonella, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, listeria, trichinosis, tularemia and toxoplasmosis. So, the main things that may attract rats and mice to your garden and home are:

  • RUBBISH/TRASH - Accumulations of garbage and garden waste stacked up on your property (particularly in the garden) will unquestionably attract rats and mice.
  • FOOD - Food that is left lying around or discarded is perhaps the main attraction for rats and mice.
  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Rats and mice can squeeze through the smallest of holes and cracks, so look out for gaps around grills, pipes, crawl spaces and doorways.
  • COMPOST/PET WASTE - Remarkably pet waste and even piles of compost can attract mice and rats - there are a few tasty morsels hiding in there!
  • WATER - Rats and mice have to drink, subsequently sources of water such as seeping sprinkler systems, pet bowls, leaky pipes and birdbaths are a big attraction for these pests.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter in a shed, cellar or loft will be especially attractive to rats and mice, particularly if there's a food source close by.
