What Attracts Rats?

Regardless of their outwardly cute appearance, with their pointy faces, twitching whiskers and furry bodies, mice and rats can be dangerous and are definitely not animals that you want to be making a home in your house or garden in Holton-le-Clay. Rats and mice can cause damage to your property by nibbling through floorboards, plastic, electric cables and plasterboard, and are frequently the cause of fires and other problems. Between the two mice and rats can spread over 30 sorts of diseases including things like listeria, toxoplasmosis, trichinosis, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, Weil's disease, salmonella, tularemia and typhus. Among the different things that will certainly attract mice and rats to your home or garden are:

  • WATER - Busy little rats and mice need to drink like any other creature, therefore water sources like pet bowls, birdbaths, seeping sprinkler systems and leaky pipes are a big enticement for these pests.
  • RUBBISH/TRASH - Accumulations of garbage and garden waste piled up on your property (particularly in the garden) will attract mice and rats.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter in an outbuilding, basement or attic will be particularly attractive to mice and rats, particularly if there is a source of food nearby.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Incredibly pet waste and even piles of compost can be attractive to rodents - there are a few tasty morsels hidden in there!
  • FOOD - Food that is left lying around or discarded is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Mice and rats can squeeze through the tiniest of holes and cracks, so watch out for spaces around piping, crawl spaces, vents and doorways.

Rat Bites

Although, in the British Isles, rat bites are not that common, they certainly do occur every now and then, and the implications can be serious in some situations. Rats can bite humans when they feel scared or cornered, therefore in confined spaces it's wise to stay out of their way, and leave them an easy exit route.

Quite a few incidents of rat bites come about when rats are being kept as pets, and sticking your hand into a rat's cage is chancing it. Rat bites aren't necessarily serious, but should be avoided if possible, and they can turn nasty or even life threatening if they develop into "rat bite fever". "Rat bite fever" (RBF), if left untreated, can cause death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever - A number of symptoms can be experienced by somebody with "rat bite fever" including:

  • Redness or Swelling
  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Rashes
  • Muscle Pain
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Vomiting

In the unlikely circumstance that you are ever bitten by a rat, you'll have to carefully bathe the wounded area, apply a layer of antibiotic ointment, and wrap it with a clean, sterile plaster or bandage. Even if you don't consider that it is too major, you should have it checked out at your nearest A&E unit, or book an emergency appointment at your local surgery. If you have not had a tetanus vaccination in the last five years or so, it might be sensible to get one of these too - an A&E nurse will most likely do this as routine.

Problems With Mice

Mice, like rats, contaminate foodstuffs, gnaw at things, breed quickly and leave droppings.
