Hunstanton Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Hunstanton Rat Catchers (PE36): Seeing rats in your garden or house tends to be rather an unsettling experience to go through although it's not such a frequent occurrence in Hunstanton these days, it's definitely something that happens every so often. Rats breed fairly quickly and are likely to cause problems, especially when there are a lot of them. A single sighting of a lone rat may not be all that much of a problem, but if you happen to be observing them frequently it is best to do something.

Pest Control Quotes

There are 2 types of rat that you might run into in Hunstanton, black rats and common (brown) rats. It's fairly improbable that you'll ever come across a black rat, and if you've encountered a rat just recently it's likely to have been the more widespread brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were responsible for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they're rather rare nowadays, though where they do occur they've got an acute sense of hearing, are exceptional climbers, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 baby rats in just one year.

Rat Catchers Hunstanton PE36

Brown rats are larger than black rats weighing in at half a kilo and reaching lengths of nearly 9 inches. To wear down their continuously growing incisor teetn, common brown rats must keep chewing stuff, which is the reason they cause so much damage. Wood is particularly vulnerable to this gnawing.

Rats spread diseases, gnaw through insulation, wires, pipes and woodwork, leave droppings, and generally cause a nuisance in businesses and households throughout Hunstanton. The local council should really be notified whenever rats are sighted. It is possible to report rat sightings on the .gov website HERE.

Pest Control in the Hunstanton Area

It is not purely by sight that you will become aware of the presence of rats, their behaviour is often quite enough to give warning. Perhaps you might spot distinctive rat holes gnawed into skirtings or floorboards, you may hear scratching noises coming from a floor, loft or wall, you could start seeing droppings on floors or in cupboards or you might come across a rat's nest hidden away.

To address this problem there are various approaches you might take. You could put traps or poison down yourself, you could get in touch with your local Hunstanton environmental health or you could locate a pest removal expert. In the past, rat catchers were exactly that, but nowadays they're typically termed pest control experts and will not only be able to help you manage getting rid of rats but also cockroaches, ants, moles, mice, wasps and more.

Mole Problems

Though not such a common problem these days moles are also often dealt with by rat catchers. Moles cause issues in different ways to rats and are not anywhere near as despised. Gardens and lawns are the biggest things at risk if you've got a mole problem. Proof of their activity can clearly be seen in the form of scattered heaps of earth on perfectly maintained lawns. Capturing with traps is undoubtedly the most acceptable and humane way to remove moles.

Mouse Problems Hunstanton

Although not quite so upsetting as seeing rats in your house or garden, having mice can be as much of a concern. Mice, similar to rats, leave droppings, gnaw at things, breed rapidly and contaminate foodstuffs. The same approaches are generally employed to clear up mouse problems in Hunstanton, this means that poisoning and setting traps are preferred. When you have an infestation of mice, Hunstanton rat catchers should be ready to help you resolve this problem. Visit BARK and track down a pest controller in your area.

Rat Poisons

To some, a distasteful method for eliminating rat infestations is by putting down poison. Wholewheat grains are covered with a poisonous substance and strategically left for the rats to eat, it then takes them a few days to perish. A sizable population of rats can soon be eliminated by this process so long as the poison is set correctly. Normally bromadioline, difenacoum or brodifacoum are the poisons used. You have to be careful to keep this out of reach of dogs and cats. Brands of rat poison made in the United Kingdom include the likes of: RatKil, Propest, Elixir Gardens, Rentokil, Pest Expert and Roshield.

Have You Got Rats?

There are various ways that you can find out when you've got rats. When you have suspicions that there might be rats in your home or business you could pay attention to gnawing in cables, wood and wires, especially in attics, keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they are darkish brown and look just like large grains of rice, hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails on loose soil or in dusty areas, watch for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks, look out for burrows or holes adjacent to solid surfaces, listen out for constant scratching noises emanating from lofts and walls, particularly at nighttime.

Rat Bites

Although, in Great Britain, bites from rats aren't all that commonplace, they certainly do occur every now and again, and the consequences can be serious in some situations. If you happen to stumble upon a rat in a confined space, it could bite you if it feels threatened or cornered, so leave a clear exit route and try to avoid it.

These sorts of bites sometimes occur when rats are kept as pets (which is happening quite frequently these days), and you're likely to be looking for trouble if you poke your hand in a rat's cage, regardless how tame it is. Although they aren't always dangerous, rat bites can become infected or be fatal if they turn into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), subsequently they must be avoided when possible. If it is left untreated "rat bite fever" (RBF) can cause death in 10% of cases.

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

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

If you are unlucky enough to be bitten by a rat, thoroughly wash the wound in warm water, put on some antibiotic cream, and cover the affected area with a bandage. Even if it does not seem that serious, you must book an emergency appointment with your GP or head for the closest A&E. Getting a tetanus jab is also advised, in particular if it's more than 5 years since your last one.
