If you see rats in Market Drayton, the likelihood is that they're going to be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), though there are in fact 2 sorts of rats at present living in the UK; brown (or common rats) and black (ship). As you may be aware black rats were the cause of the Great Plague of the 17th Century during which period they were quite common. Black rats are relatively rare nowadays and actually neither variety is a native of Great Britain, both of them hailing from from Asia.

The black rat at 5-7" long, is a little smaller than the brown variety, which reaches lengths of almost nine inches and weighs in at about half a kilo. To wear down their continually growing incisors, common brown rats have to keep on gnawing at stuff, which explains why they cause so much damage. Wooden items are especially prone to this interest.

Rat infestations can cause a variety of issues for home owners and businesses throughout Market Drayton, they will transmit diseases, leave behind droppings, gnaw through woodwork, insulation, wires and pipes, and get up to all sorts of mischief.

Have You Got Rats?

If you have a notion you could have rats in your home or business, there are a number of ways by which you're able to tell. You can listen closely for scratching noises coming from lofts and walls, especially during the night, pay attention to gnaw marks in wood, wires and cables, particularly in lofts, watch out for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on skirting boards and walls, look out for holes or burrows alongside solid objects, hunt for signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, keep your eyes open for faeces (droppings), they look just like large grains of rice and are dark brown.

Rat Bite Wounds

While, in the United Kingdom, bites from rats are not all that commonplace, they certainly do happen every once in a while, and the implications can be serious in some instances. When rats are threatened or feel cornered, they can bite humans, so if you find yourself in a situation like that, keep out of the way and leave an easy exit route.

You would think that people would be wary of poking their hand into a rat's cage, however as rats are frequently kept as pets (are you kidding?), this is a rising cause of rat bites. Rat bites can turn nasty or even life threatening if they turn into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), consequently they must be avoided when possible, although of of course they're not always dangerous. If left without treatment "rat bite fever" can result in death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever - "Rat bite fever" (streptobacillary RBF) can have a number of signs and symptoms, including:

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

You should immediately wash the wound with warm water, if you get bitten by a rat, then administer an antibiotic ointment to the bite area, and cover it with a clean gauze or bandage. Even if you don't feel that it is too severe, you must have it looked at by your closest A&E, or book an emergency appointment to see your GP. If it is more than 5 years since you received your last vaccination for tetanus, you must get one of these done as well, since rat bites can easily become infected.

Rat Prevention Market Drayton

The easiest way to prevent issues with rodents is not to attract them from the outset. Therefore, rat prevention has to be a thing to look at even when you don't have problems with rats at this time. Domestic rubbish littered around your garden is amongst the primary causes of rat and rodent infestations. You will do nothing but attract them if you give them both the materials and location to build nests. If there is also loads of food on offer your rats will be in heaven, so keep in mind that traditional bird feeders attract rats, in particular when they are vulnerable to overflowing, and household food waste should also not be left lying around.

What Attracts Rats?

In spite of their outwardly cute look, with their fur covered bodies, pointy faces and twitching whiskers, mice and rats can be dangerous and are definitely not creatures that you want to be living in your home or garden in Market Drayton. By nibbling through plastic, wood, electric wires and plasterboard, rats and mice can cause electrical fires and other accidents. More than 30 different sorts of disease can be spread by rats and mice including things like listeria, salmonella, tularemia, bubonic plague, trichinosis, Weil's disease, rat bite fever, typhus and toxoplasmosis. So, below are just a few of the things that are going to attract rats and mice to your home and garden:

  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Surprisingly pet waste and even piles of compost can attract rodents - there are some tasty morsels hidden in there!
  • TRASH - Accumulations of trash and garden waste stacked up on your property (especially in the garden) will clearly attract mice and rats.
  • CLUTTER - General clutter and jumble in a shed, cellar or loft will be especially attractive to rats and mice, particularly if there is a source of food close by.
  • WATER - Active mice and rats need to drink like any other creature, subsequently sources of water like birdbaths, dripping sprinkler systems, pet bowls and leaking pipes are a big enticement for these unwanted pests.
  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Mice and rats can squeeze through the smallest of cracks and holes, so keep an eye out for gaps around crawl spaces, plumbing, entrances and roof vents.
  • FOOD - Food that is left discarded or lying around is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.
