A considerable population of rats can soon be exterminated with this process as long as the poison is set properly. Normally bromadioline, brodifacoum or difenacoum are among the poisons used. Dogs, cats and other pets could also be killed by coming into contact with such rat poisons, so take care. Rat poison brands made in Britain include: Elixir Gardens, Pest Expert, Rentokil, Roshield, Propest and RatKil. (Tags: Rat Poison Stanford-le-Hope, Rat Poisons Stanford-le-Hope)

What Attracts Mice and Rats?

With their pointy faces, furry bodies and twitchy whiskers, some folk may find mice and rats to be rather cute, however they're definitely not the sort of creatures that you want to be living in your home or garden in Stanford-le-Hope, and can be more dangerous than you might expect. By nibbling through insulation materials, electrical cables, floorboards and plastic, mice and rats can cause accidents and in particular electrical fires. Spreading conditions like trichinosis, typhus, tularemia, salmonella, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, Weil's disease, toxoplasmosis and listeria, mice and rats can cause more than 30 kinds of disease. Among the things that will definitely attract rats and mice to your home and garden are:

  • WATER - Mice and rats have to drink, consequently water sources like leaky pipes, pet water bowls, dripping sprinkler systems and birdbaths are a big temptation for these unwelcome pests.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Incredibly piles of compost and even pet waste can attract mice and rats - there will be a few tasty titbits hiding in there!
  • CLUTTER - General jumble and clutter in an attic, shed or basement will be especially attractive to rats and mice, especially if there is a source of food close by.
  • TRASH/RUBBISH - An accumulation of junk and garden waste piled up on your property (especially in the garden) will obviously attract mice and rats.
  • FOOD - Food that is left lying around or discarded is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.
  • ENTRY POINTS AND HOLES - Rats and mice can crawl through the smallest of holes and cracks, so watch out for spaces around doors, piping, crawl spaces and vents.

Kinds of Rat

You're only going to come across 2 types of rat in Stanford-le-Hope, Essex and throughout the UK. They're the Brown Rat and the Black Rat.

The Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus)

The most widespread type of rat seen in the British Isles, and also Europe, is the brown rat (Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), common rat, sewer rat or street rat). The colouring of this rodent of the family Muridae varies between brown and grey, it typically grows to approximately 4 to 9 inches (and a similar length tail) with a weight of between 140 and 500 grammes. Whilst once believed to have originated in Norway (hence its name), it's now understood to have come from China or at least Central Asia. Brown rats are omniverous (eat pretty much anything) although they favour cereals, they have bad eyesight but excellent hearing, the female rats attain sexual maturity in just 5 weeks and can give birth to five litters per annum (up to 14 young in each), they dig extensive burrows and climb well.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

The black rat, (Rattus Rattus), ship rat or roof rat is also not a native of the United Kingdom, originating in Southeast Asia (India). Understood to have spread during the Roman Empire, this rat probably reached Continental Europe and the United Kingdom hidden in shipments of spice. The black rat was once a common sight in the UK but was largely ousted by the larger brown rat and is now not often found. Weighing only 75-230 grammes, the black rat reaches a length of 5" to 7". Black rats are notorious for spreading a number of diseases, most notably trichinosis, typhus, tularemia, salmonella, rat bite fever, bubonic plague, Weil's disease, toxoplasmosis and listeria.

Problems With Moles

Rat catchers in Stanford-le-Hope are often contacted to help remedy another similar type of pest, ie moles. In no way such hated creatures, moles bring about totally different problems to rats. Gardens and lawns are the main things at risk of damage if you've got a mole situation. Evidence of their activity can plainly be spotted in the shape of randomly scattered heaps of earth on beautifully trimmed lawns. The favorite and humane way to stop moles is by trapping.

Problems With Mice

Maybe thought by many as not being so disconcerting as rats, discovering mice scuttling around your property can lead to just as many problems. While much smaller, mice still breed rapidly, contaminate foodstuffs, gnaw at things and leave droppings. The resolution to mouse problems in Stanford-le-Hope are very similar to the ones used with rats ie setting traps and poisoning.

Rat Prevention Stanford-le-Hope

Dissuading mice and rats before they become a nuisance is actually the most effective way to avoid having problems with them. Subsequently, deterring mice and rats must be something to look at even when you don't have a rat problem at this time. Domestic rubbish littered around your garden is known to be one of the primary reasons behind rat and rodent infestations. You will simply attract them if you provide them with both the place and materials to build a nest. If there is also enough food available these rats imagine they are in heaven, so be aware that many bird feeders attract rats, in particular when they're vulnerable to spillages, and domestic food scraps shouldn't be easily accessible.
