Whilst neither of the two rat types at present living in the UK are native to these shores, they've unquestionably thrived since they got here. The brown rat is particularly widespread whilst the black (ship) rat isn't so much nowadays. Both of these breeds came from Asia and made their way to the United Kingdom on boats (as stowaways).

The biggest of the two rats is the brown rat at about nine inches, while the black rat (Rattus Rattus) only grows to between 5" and 7". The majority of the destruction attributable to brown rats is because to prevent their incisor teeth from growing too much, they must continuously gnaw on things. Their interest is commonly focused on items made out of timber.

Rats may cause a variety of problems in businesses and homes throughout Northampton and they leave behind droppings, spread disease, gnaw through insulation, woodwork, wires and pipes, and are basically problematic. The local council must be informed whenever rats are spotted. In addition you can report rat and pest problems on the .gov web page HERE.

Pest Control in Northampton

You will occasionally discover the presence of rats not by in fact seeing them, but by them indicating their presence in other ways. It is possible you might discover droppings in cupboards or on floor surfaces, you could encounter rat holes gnawed in floorboards or skirtings, you may hear noises coming from a wall, loft or floor or you may come across a rat's nest in some tucked away location.

To manage this issue there are two or three strategies that you might take. You could lay down traps or poison yourself, you could get hold of your local Northampton authority or council or you could hire the services of a rat catcher or pest removal expert. Way back in the past, rat catchers were just that, but presently they're usually referred to as pest control experts and will not solely be capable of helping you with getting rid of rats but also resolving problems with cockroaches, mice, wasps, moles, ants and many more.

Signs of Rat Infestations

There are a number of ways by which you can tell if you have rats. When you have a notion that there could be rats in your home or business you should keep an eye out for faeces (droppings), they're darkish brown and look just like large grains of rice, be on the lookout for burrows or holes close to solid objects, search for signs of footprints or tail trails in dusty areas, watch for rub marks on skirtings and walls where greasy fur has left marks, listen for continual scratching noises coming from walls and rooves, in particular at night, pay attention to gnawing in wires, wood and cables, particularly in attics.

Rat Bite Wounds

Whilst not all that commonplace in the United Kingdom, rat bites certainly do occur every once in a while, and in some instances they can have serious consequences. When rats are cornered or feel stressed, they can bite humans, therefore should you find yourself in that situation, keep out of the way and leave a clear and easy exit route.

A fair few incidences of rat bites occur when rats are kept as pets (really?), and sticking your hand into a rat's cage could be chancing it. Even though rat bites are not serious in all instances, they must be avoided where possible, and can become infected or be fatal if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). "Rat bite fever" can lead to death in 10% of cases, if left untreated.

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

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

If you are unfortunate enough to get bitten by a rat, wash the wound, put on some antibiotic cream, and bandage the affected area. Even if you don't feel it is that bad, you must have it looked at by your closest A&E, or book an appointment to see your doctor or GP. If it is more than five years since you received your last vaccination for tetanus, you should get one of these done as well, since rat bites can easily become infected.
