Pest Control Quotes

There are 2 sorts of rat which you might run into in Long Sutton, black rats and brown (common) rats. Its fairly unlikely that you'll ever come across black rats, and if you have stumbled upon a rat just recently the chances are it'll have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were blamed for the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are quite rare now, however when they are found they are superb climbers, have good hearing, and the females can produce between twenty and one hundred baby rats each year.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches long, isn't as big as the brown rat, which attains lengths of up to about 9 inches and weighs about 500g.

Any regular incidences of rats should always be reported to the local authorities. Or even post a report recording incidences of rats and other pest problems on the .gov website HERE, to be passed onto your local authorities.

Rat Prevention Long Sutton

Discouraging rats before they show up is actually the best way of avoiding such problems. Therefore, even though you do not currently have a rat problem, deterring rats and rodents should be on top of your priority list. Amongst the major factors behind rat and mouse infestations is household rubbish in gardens. You will do little else but attract rats and mice if you supply them with both the materials and location to build a nest. If there's also enough food available the rats imagine they are in paradise, so be wary that many bird seed feeders often attract rats, in particular when they're liable to spilling over, and domestic food scraps should not be easily accessible.

Rat Poison

A rather distasteful method for removing rat infestations is by laying poison. Grains of wheat are laced with a poisoned substance and strategically left for rats to consume, it only takes several days for them to perish. The correct placing of the rat poison is crucial and can result in the success or failure of this procedure. Poisonous components that are widely-used in making rat poison includes: difenacoum, bromadioline or brodifacoum. Cats, dogs and other pets can also be harmed as a result of rat poisons, so be cautious. Brands of rat poison available in the British Isles include the likes of: Elixir Gardens, Pest Expert, Propest, RatKil, Rentokil and Roshield. (Tags: Rat Poison Long Sutton, Rat Poisons Long Sutton)

What Attracts Mice and Rats?

Several different things will attract mice and rats to your home and garden including:

  • RUBBISH/TRASH - Accumulations of garbage and garden rubbish heaped up on your property (particularly in the garden) will definitely attract mice and rats.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter and jumble in cellar, gardenshed or loft will be particularly attractive to rodents, particularly if there's a source of food close by.
