March Pest Control Services

March Rat Catchers (PE15): Even though its not that commonplace at present, finding rats in your garden or even inside your property in March is not really a good thing to experience. A single sighting of a rat might not be that much of an issue, but, if you observe rats more often or see several rats you could be in for trouble since they breed so rapidly.

Though neither of the 2 varieties of rat at present living in the UK originate from these islands, they've unquestionably become firmly established. The brown rat is especially commonplace while the black rat isn't so much these days. Both of these varieties escaped from Asia and arrived in the UK on boats (as stowaways).

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5 to 7" long, is a little smaller than the common brown rat, which attains a length of almost 9 inches and weighs around half a kilogram. To wear down their continuously growing incisor teetn, common brown rats need to keep on chewing things, which is why they cause such a lot of damage. Wood is especially more prone to their attention.

Rats leave droppings, gnaw their way through wires, woodwork, insulation and pipes, spread disease, and are basically troublesome in homes and businesses throughout March. The local authority really should be advised when there are any sightings of rats. Or alternatively post a report to record pest and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, to be passed onto your local authority.

Pest Control in March

It is not always by sight alone that you will become aware of the existence of rats, their habits are sometimes enough to enlighten you. It could be that you might spot holes chewed into skirtings or floorboards, you may hear scratching coming from a loft, floor or wall, you could uncover a rat's nest hidden away somewhere or you might discover droppings in cupboards or on floor surfaces.

If you are going to have this problem resolved properly you will have to get in touch with a specialist. You could contact your local council or use the services of a professional March rat catcher or pest controller yourself. Way back in the past, rat catchers were precisely that, however these days they tend to be termed pest controllers and will not only be willing to help you tackle rat problems but also eliminating moles, wasps, cockroaches, mice, ants and much more.

Rat Prevention March

Discouraging mice and rats even before they appear is actually the simplest way to avoid having problems with them. Subsequently, rat prevention ought to be a thing to think about even when you don't currently have a rat problem. Household trash littered around your garden is one of the major reasons for rat and rodent infestations. Providing them with both the location and materials to build nests will only attract them. Additionally, you should avoid providing easy food by leaving scraps of food in your garden and putting out bird seed feeders with grain that will only attract rats.

Problems With Moles

Several March rat catchers will also help with moles. Responsible for quite different issues to rats, moles are not quite so detested. Lawns and gardens are the chief things vulnerable if you have a mole situation. Evidence of their destructive activity can be plainly seen in the shape of randomly scattered mounds of earth on beautifully maintained lawns. Using traps is undoubtedly the most humane and acceptable way to remove moles.

Rats - Telltale Signs

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


Digging and burrowing is something that all rats love to do and it's at the side of solid objects or structures such as pathways, garden sheds, garage foundations and terraces that they especially like to dig. These are often not simple holes, but extensive networks of burrows, designed to provide shelter, food storage and nesting. A sure indication of a rat burrow is often a hole with smooth sides next to a solid surface, where the movement of hairy bodies have polished the entrance. Typically around two to four inches across, burrow entrances are not difficult to recognize. Chuck some stuff into the hole and check back the following day to find out whether it has been shifted. This will determine if the rats are still about.

Reporting Rat Sightings

We briefly brought up this topic before, so now we'll go into it a bit more. If you discover rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public place it's best to report it to the local authority Environmental Health Department. When it comes to rats this could occasionally be a free service, even though you'll frequently be required to pay for some other infestations for example bed bugs, cockroaches and wasps. It's also easy to report rats on the Government (.gov) website which you can find HERE. Click HERE to book your local rat catcher and get the problem sorted out swiftly.

Problems With Mice

Mice are often just as much of an issue as rats, particularly when they get into your home. The same as rats, mice gnaw at stuff, breed rapidly, contaminate foodstuffs, leave droppings and are typically a nuisance. The strategies for mouse problems in March are pretty much the same as the ones employed for rats ie trapping and poisoning. Regardless of whether you have got a problem with mice or rats, head over to BARK to track down a specialist March pest controller to sort it out for you.

What Attracts Rats?

Regardless of their outwardly cute appearance, with their twitchy whiskers, fur covered bodies and pointy faces, rats and mice can be dangerous and are definitely not animals that you want to be making a home in your house or garden in March. Mice and rats can cause damage to your property by gnawing through skirting boards, plastic, electric wires and insulation materials, and are sometimes responsible for fires and other problems. Spreading things like salmonella, bubonic plague, typhus, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, trichinosis, rat bite fever, Weil's disease and listeria, mice and rats can cause more than 30 different types of disease. So, the principal things that attract mice and rats to your garden or home are:

  • CLUTTER - General clutter in shed, basement or loft will be particularly attractive to mice and rats, particularly if there's a food source close by.
  • RUBBISH/TRASH - Accumulations of garbage and garden waste stacked up on your property (especially in the garden) will attract mice and rats.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Surprisingly pet waste and even heaps of compost can attract rodents - there are likely to be a few tasty morsels hiding in there!
  • WATER - Busy rats and mice have to drink, consequently sources of water such as pet water bowls, dripping sprinkler systems, leaking pipes and birdbaths are a big temptation for these pests.
  • FOOD - Food that's left discarded or lying around is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Rats and mice can crawl through the tiniest of holes and cracks, so watch out for gaps around doorways, pipework, roof vents and crawl spaces.

Clearly rats and mice are not just found in March itself, they are just as likely to occur in Town End, Westry, Doddington, Eastwood End, Wisbech Saint Mary, Whittlesey, Friday Bridge, Norwoodside, Murrow, Upwell, Hook, Wimblington, Three Holes, Elm, Outwell, Guyhirn, Little London, West End, Badgeney and additional places close by.
