Pest Control Quotes

There are actually two types of rat which you might run into in Market Deeping, brown (common) rats and black rats. It's quite unlikely that you will ever see black rats, and if you've encountered a rat fairly recently its likely to have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were at one time common and were the cause of the Great Plague, they're rather scarce nowadays, although where they are seen they've got good hearing, are amazing climbers, and can give birth to between 20 and 100 baby rats each year.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches, is a little smaller than the brown, which grows to lengths of up to about 9" and weighs in at close to half a kilo. A great deal of the damage and destruction attributable to brown rats is down to the fact that to keep their incisors from growing too much, they have to continually chew on stuff. Their interest is commonly focused on things that's made from wood.

What Attracts Rats and Mice?

With their twitching whiskers, pointy faces and furry bodies, some folk might find mice and rats to be cute, however they're definitely not the type of creatures that you want living in your home or garden in Market Deeping, and can be more dangerous than you may believe. By nibbling through skirting boards, plastic, electrical cables and plasterboard, rats and mice can cause accidents and in particular electrical fires. Over 30 different types of disease are spread by rats and mice including things like bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis, rat bite fever, tularemia, Weil's disease, trichinosis, typhus, listeria and salmonella. So, below are just a few of the things that will attract rats and mice to your home or garden:

  • RUBBISH/TRASH - An accumulation of junk and garden rubbish piled up on your property (particularly in the garden) will surely attract rats and mice.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Mice and rats can squeeze through the tiniest of cracks and holes, so keep an eye out for spaces around entrances, crawl spaces, pipework and roof vents.
  • WATER - Rats and mice need to drink, so sources of water like seeping sprinkler systems, birdbaths, pet water bowls and leaky pipes are a big temptation for these pests.
  • FOOD - Food left discarded or lying around is perhaps the main attraction for rats and mice.
  • COMPOST/PET WASTE - Incredibly pet waste and even piles of compost can be attractive to mice and rats - there are likely to be some tasty morsels hidden in there!
  • CLUTTER - General clutter in a shed, attic or basement will be especially attractive to mice and rats, especially if there is a food source close by.

Rat Sightings - Reporting

We briefly highlighted this subject previously, so now I will go into a bit more detail. If you witness rats in a public space, in a neighbours garden or in your own garden it is generally a wise idea to inform the local environmental health. Some councils will sort out problems with rats cost-free, but when you have other pest infestations like bed bugs, wasps and cockroaches they'll normally charge. Sightings of rats can also be reported by visiting the Government (.gov) webpage HERE. You can obviously arrange your own rat catcher to pop in and sort out the problem by clicking HERE.

Rat Burrows

If you have rats appearing in the garden, the probability is there is going to be a burrow somewhere. Rats love to burrow and they typically do this beside solid objects or structures such as shed bases, garage foundations, patios and paths. These are the best spots to look if you think you have rats nesting there. These are not often just straightforward holes in the ground, but rather substantial systems of burrows, built to use as shelter, nesting places and food storage. A guaranteed sign of a rat burrow is a smooth sided hole near to a solid surface, where the motion of furry bodies have polished and rubbed the burrow entrance. Should you discover holes but are not certain that they are rats, they will normally be approximately 2-4 inches in diameter. Chuck some stuff into the burrow and check the following day to determine if it's been cleared. This should clarify if rats are still living there.

Species of Rat

There are actually two breeds of rat which it's possible to run into in Market Deeping or in fact any place else in the United Kingdom. The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus) and the Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus).

The Brown Rat

In Market Deeping, the remainder of the UK and Continental Europe the commonest kind of rat is the brown rat (sewer rat, common rat, street rat or Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)), this is the kind you are likely to see in your garden or property. The brown rat (it can sometimes be grey in colour) is generally 4" - 9" long (excluding the tail) and weighs in at 140 to 500g. It is almost always found wherever humans live. This rodent was given the name Norway Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) since it was believed to have arrived in Great Britain by ships from Norway. The brown rat is nowadays thought to have originated from China or Central Asia. Brown rats climb effectively and dig extensively, they have excellent hearing but bad eyesight, the female rats can produce up to five litters per year, they feed on pretty much any foodstuffs (omnivorous) but have a preference for cereals and grains.

The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus)

The black rat, roof rat or ship rat (Rattus Rattus) is also not a native of Britain, originating from Southeast Asia (quite likely India). Thought to have been spread when the Roman Empire still existed, this rat quite possibly reached Continental Europe and the UK in cargoes of spices. Once a common sight in the United Kingdom, the black rat largely disappeared when the brown rat took over. This rat reaches lengths of 5" to 7" a weight of 75-230 grammes. Well known for spreading pathogens and diseases black rats are often to blame for bubonic plague, toxoplasmosis, rat bite fever, tularemia, Weil's disease, trichinosis, typhus, listeria and salmonella.
