Porthleven Rat Catchers (TR13): Spotting a rat in your garden or home could be rather a frightening thing to experience and while it isn't so regular an occurrence in Porthleven nowadays, it is definitely not unusual. Rats breed fairly quickly and are likely to cause problems, especially when there are a lot of them. An individual incidence of a solitary rat probably won't be that much of a concern, but if you are noticing them frequently you'll want to do something.

If you do discover rats in Porthleven, the probability is that they are going to be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), though there are in fact two sorts of rats currently living in Great Britain; black (or ship) rats and brown (common) rats. As you may be aware ship rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague of the 17th Century during which period they were very common. Black rats are quite scarce nowadays but in fact neither type is native to the United Kingdom, both of them coming from Asia.

Rat Prevention Porthleven

Discouraging mice and rats before they even become a nuisance is definitely an effective way of avoiding having problems with them. Therefore, even when you do not presently have a rat problem, rat prevention should be high on your priority list. Domestic trash cluttering up the garden is amongst the principal reasons behind rat infestations. You will do nothing but encourage rats and mice if you supply them with both the place and materials to build a nest. If there is also loads of food on offer the rats think they're in paradise, so keep in mind that bird feeders attract rats, particularly when they are vulnerable to spilling over, and domestic household waste food should not be accessible.

Have You Got Rats?

There are various ways that you can tell when you've got rats. When you've got an inkling that there might be rats in your home or business you could keep an eye out for rat droppings, they're darkish brown and look similar to large grains of rice, pay attention to gnaw marks in cables, wood and wires, particularly in attics, hunt for signs of tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, listen closely for scratching noises coming from lofts and walls, particularly at nighttime, look out for tunnels or burrows alongside solid objects, watch out for rub marks on walls and skirting boards where greasy fur has left marks.

Rat Bite Wounds

Although not all that common in Great Britain, rat bites do happen every so often, and in certain instances they can be dangerous. If you stumble upon a rat in a confined area, it could attack and bite you if it feels cornered or stressed, so leave it an easy exit route and try to avoid it.

These types of bites sometimes occur where rats are kept as pets, and you're likely looking for trouble if you shove your hand into a rat's cage. Rat bites aren't necessarily dangerous, but should be avoided when possible, and they can become infected or be fatal if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis). If it's not treated appropriately "rat bite fever" can cause death in 10% of cases.

Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever - "Rat bite fever" can have various symptoms, including:

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

If you get bitten by a rat you should immediately wash the wound with warm water, apply an antibiotic cream, and cover it with a clean gauze or bandage. You should make an emergency appointment with your doctor, or go to the closest A&E unit, even if it does not appear to be that serious. Having a tetanus jab is also advisable, in particular if it is more than five years since you've had one.

Diseases Spread by Rats

Diseases can be transmitted to humans by rats through their saliva, faeces and urine, with a variety of ailments being spread. Leptospirosis, hantavirus, rat-bite fever, salmonellosis are diseases that rats have the ability to pass on to humans.

Hantavirus can cause a severe respiratory illness that can be fatal. Leptospirosis, a bacterial infection, can cause flu-like symptoms and potentially result in the failure of the kidneys and liver. Rat-bite fever, a bacterial infection, is capable of causing fever, rashes and vomiting through a rat bite or scratch. Salmonellosis, a bacterial infection, produces symptoms including fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps.

In order to lower the risk of disease transmission, it is crucial to control and prevent rat infestations. Rats have been found to carry ticks and fleas, which have the potential to transmit diseases such as Lyme disease and typhus to humans. Also, the potential for disease transmission can be exacerbated by the contamination of food and water sources with rat droppings and urine. Effective rat control measures, such as proper sanitation and rodent-proofing, can help prevent and reduce the spread of these diseases and the risk of rat infestations.

Reporting Rats and Pests

We briefly brought up this before, so now let's go into it a bit more. It is always advisable to report it to the local environmental health if you notice rats in a public place, in a neighbours garden or in your own garden. Certain local councils provide a cost-free service for rat issues but charges are typically made for most unwelcome pests like wasps, bed bugs and cockroaches. Sightings of rats may also be reported on the .gov website HERE. To have things taken care of quickly contact a rat catcher HERE.
