A single incidence of a lone rat might not be that much of an issue, but if you are observing them regularly you must find a solution.

Pest Control Quotes

If you do spot rats in Southwater, the probability is that they'll be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), though there are in fact two sorts of rat currently found in Great Britain; brown (or common rats) and black (or ship rats). As you may know ship rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague of the 17th Century during which period they were fairly common. Black rats are quite scarce now but in fact neither variety is native to the British Isles, both hailing from from Asia.

The black rat (Rattus Rattus) at 5 to 7" long, is a little smaller than the common brown rat, which attains lengths of up to about nine inches and weighs about half a kilo. Most of the destruction caused by brown rats is due to the fact that to prevent their incisors from getting too much, they have to continually gnaw on stuff. Their attention is commonly concentrated on items made of wood.

Pest Control Southwater

You will oftentimes be alerted to the presence of rats not in fact by physically seeing them, but by them indicating their existence in other ways. It could be that you may hear scratching noises coming from a floor, wall or loft, you might discover droppings in cupboards or on the floor, you could come across rat holes chewed in floorboards or skirtings or you might uncover a rat's nest hidden away.

In order to have this situation tackled correctly you might want to get in touch with a specialist. You could either speak to the local environmental health department or get hold of an expert Southwater pest controller or rat catcher yourself. These days rat catchers commonly come under the umbrella of pest control, and pest control specialists not only control rats but also fleas, mice, bedbugs, cockroaches, wasps, moles and all kinds of garden and household pests.

Rat Bites

While, in the United Kingdom, rat bites are not that common, they certainly do occur every once in a while, and the implications can be serious in some scenarios. When rats are threatened or feel cornered, they can attack and bite humans, so if you find yourself in that situation, stay well out of the way and leave an easy and clear exit route.

Some instances of rat bites happen when rats are kept as pets (really?), and placing your hand inside a rat's cage is something of a risk. Rat bites can turn nasty or even life threatening if they develop into "rat bite fever", so they should be avoided if possible, although of of course they're not always serious. "Rat bite fever" can lead to death in 10% of cases, if left without treatment.

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

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

You should promptly wash the wound with warm water, if you receive a rat bite, and administer an antibiotic ointment to the bite area, and finally cover it with a clean, sterile plaster or bandage. Even if you do not consider that it's too severe, you must get it looked at by your nearest hospital A&E unit, or book an appointment at your local doctor's surgery. If you haven't received a tetanus vaccine in the last five years, you should also get one of these too.

Mouse Problems Southwater

Whilst not quite so uncomfortable as seeing rats in your house or garden, mice may be nearly as much of a problem. Mice, like rats, gnaw at things, breed quickly, leave droppings and contaminate food. The resolution to mouse problems in Southwater are largely the same as the ones used for rats ie setting traps and poisoning. Whether you have got a problem with mice or rats, visit BARK to find a local Southwater pest controller for assistance.

Rat Poisons

One of the ways to resolve a rat problem is to use poison. A rat dies just a few days after ingesting poisoned bait, usually wholewheat grain. When it is set in a suitable position in or close to a rat infested area, poison can quite rapidly deal with a large population of rats. Generally brodifacoum, difenacoum or bromadioline are the poisons used. Rat poison does not just harm rats, pets can also be affected, therefore extreme care must be taken. Well known brands of rat poison sold in the UK include the likes of: Pest Expert, RatKil, Propest, Roshield, Rentokil and Elixir Gardens. (Tags: Rat Poison Southwater, Rat Poisons Southwater)
