Milnrow Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Milnrow Rat Catchers (OL16): While it's not so common in these modern times, discovering a rat in your garden or house in Milnrow just isn't a great thing to experience. Just one rat sighting might not be that much of a cause for concern, however, if you see rats more regularly or notice more than one you could soon be in trouble as they tend to reproduce so fast.

Pest Control Quotes

Though neither of the two breeds of rat currently found in the British Isles are natives of these islands, they've certainly made themselves at home. The brown rat is particularly commonplace while the black (ship) rat isn't so much these days. Both breeds escaped from Asia and made their way to the UK on ships.

Rat Catchers Milnrow OL16

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5-7 inches long, is not as large as the common brown rat, which reaches a length of almost 9" and weighs about 500g. To wear down their continuously growing teeth, common brown rats have to keep on gnawing at stuff, which is why they cause so much damage and destruction. Woodwork is especially susceptible to their gnawing.

Rats gnaw their way through pipes, insulation, wires and woodwork, spread diseases, leave behind droppings, and are typically problematic in homes and business premises in and around Milnrow. Sightings of rats need to be reported to the local authorities. Or alternatively report pest problems and rat sightings on the .gov website HERE, to be forwarded to your local authority.

Milnrow Pest Control

You don't have to actually witness rats to confirm that they're there, because there are a range of signs that will betray their activity. It could be that you might stumble upon a rat's nest hidden away somewhere, you might discover droppings in cupboards or on the floor, you might come across holes gnawed into skirting boards or floorboards or you may hear noises coming from a wall, floor or loft.

If you do not want to wait around for the local authorities to deal with your rat problem you could also contact a local Milnrow rat catcher or pest controller who will be experienced in the art of pest removal. In centuries past, rat catchers used to be exactly that, however at present they are labeled pest control experts and won't only be willing to help you sort out rat problems but also cockroaches, wasps, mice, moles, ants and more.

Rat Bite Wounds

While they're by no means among the most commonplace injuries sustained by people in Great Britain, every now and again rat bites certainly do happen, and the effects can sometimes be grave. When rats are distressed or feel cornered, they can bite humans, therefore if you unfortunately find yourself in a situation like that, leave an easy exit route and stay out of the way.

These types of bites occasionally occur when rats are being kept as pets, and you're likely to be looking for trouble if you stick your hand in a rat's cage, no matter how tame it is. Rat bites can become infected or be fatal if they develop into "rat bite fever", so they should be avoided when possible, although of of course they are not always dangerous. "Rat bite fever" can cause death, and has has a 10% mortality rate, if it is left untreated.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever - Some of the symptoms and signs of "rat bite fever" are:

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

If you're unlucky enough to receive a rat bite, carefully wash the wound in warm water, apply some antibiotic cream, and bandage the affected area. You should go to your nearest A&E and get it checked out, even if you don't think that it is too serious, or at the minimum arrange an appointment with your doctor or GP. Having a tetanus vaccination is also wise, particularly if it's more than 5 years since you've had one.


One thing that rats like to do is dig and burrow, and the area where they most like to burrow is alongside solid objects or structures like shed bases, pathways, terraces and garages. Providing shelter, nesting and food storage, rat burrows are dug into substantial networks which can even cause damage to buildings if they remain unchecked. A guaranteed indication of a rat burrow is often a smooth sided hole by the side of a solid surface, where the motion of hairy creatures have polished the entrance hole. Typically about 2" to 4" in diameter, entrances to burrows are normally fairly easy to identify. A good way to learn if rats are still living in that specific burrow is to chuck a bit of rubbish into the hole and check if it's been removed the next day.

Reporting Rat Sightings

Here's a bit more information on a topic we touched on earlier in this article. It is always best to report it to the local authorities if you spot rats in your own garden, in a neighbours garden or in a public place. Certain councils offer a free service for sorting out rats but charges are usually made for most pests like wasps, bed bugs and cockroaches. Incidences of rats may also be reported by visiting the Government (.gov) website HERE. To have the issue taken care of quickly contact a rat catcher HERE.

Some Milnrow rat catchers will also help with moles. Bringing about quite different issues than rats, moles are certainly not quite so hated. The biggest issue with moles is they will cause a fair amount of damage to your garden, particularly to your lawn.
