Black rats are quite scarce now and in fact neither variety is a native of the UK, both of them arriving from Asia.

Molecatchers in Sale: Rat catchers in Sale are occasionally brought in to manage another similar type of pest, ie moles. By no means such disliked animals, moles bring about different problems to rats. The biggest trouble with moles is that they'll cause quite a bit of damage to your garden, and in particular to your lawn. The recognizable sight of mounds of earth in the middle of a nicely mown lawn are clear evidence of mole activity. Moles are usually captured in traps and released somewhere else, if you favour a more humane strategy. (Tags: Mole Trapping Sale, Mole Catchers Sale)

Signs of Rats: There are a few ways that you can find out when you've got rats. If you have an inkling that there might be rats in your property or business you could be on the lookout for tunnels or burrows near to solid objects, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirting boards, keep your eyes peeled for faeces, they look just like large grains of rice and are dark brown in colour, hunt for tail trails or footprints in dusty areas, pay attention to gnawing in cables, wires and wood, particularly in lofts, listen out for constant scratching noises coming from walls and attics, particularly during the night.

Burrowing: Something that all rats love to do is dig burrows, and their favourite place to dig is at the side of solid objects or structures like garden sheds, patios, garage foundations and pathways. Useful for food storage, shelter and nesting, rat burrows are dug into extensive networks which may even cause damage to buildings if they remain unchecked. Watch out for holes with smooth edges, that have been polished by the continual motion of these busy little pests. The entrances to burrows are commonly 2-4 inches in diameter. A simple way to ascertain if rats still live in that particular burrow is to chuck some rubbish into the burrow entrance and see if it has been cleared away the next day.

  • CLUTTER - General clutter and jumble in an outbuilding, basement or loft space will be particularly attractive to rodents, particularly if there's a source of food close by.
