Thorne Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Thorne Rat Catchers (DN8): While it isn't all that common at present, spotting a rat in your garden or house in Thorne is not a pleasing thing to experience. One rat sighting shouldn't be too much of a concern, but, if you spot rats more regularly or notice several rats you might be in for trouble as they reproduce so quickly.

Pest Control Quotes

There are two kinds of rat that you might spot in Thorne, black rats and brown (or common) rats. It is relatively unlikely that you'll ever come across black rats, and if you've encountered a rat recently its likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were once common and were responsible for the Great Plague, they're rather scarce now, but when they are seen they have good hearing, are terrific climbers, and can give birth to between twenty and one hundred offspring every 12 months.

Rat Catchers Thorne South Yorkshire DN8

The black rat at 5 to 7 inches, is smaller than the brown, which reaches a length of almost 9" and weighs in at close to 500g. Brown rats can cause problems as they need to continuously chew on things to prevent their teeth from getting too long. They particularly prefer to gnaw at woodwork.

Rats can cause various kinds of issues in homes and businesses throughout Thorne and they spread diseases, leave behind droppings, gnaw through insulation, woodwork, pipes and wires, and generally cause a nuisance. Any sightings of rats need to be reported to the local environmental health department. Or head HERE to report incidences of rats and pests on the .gov website online.

Pest Control Thorne

It's not invariably by sight alone that you will become aware of the presence of rats, their behaviour is sometimes enough to give warning. It could be that you could come across distinctive rat holes chewed into skirtings or floorboards, you might start seeing droppings on floor surfaces or in cupboards, you might uncover a rat's nest hidden away or you could hear scratching noises coming from a floor, loft or wall.

Unless you wish to wait around for environmental health to remedy your rat issues you could always contact a local Thorne pest controller or rat catcher who'll be an expert in the art of pest removal. In these modern times rat catchers normally fall into the category of pest control, and pest control specialists don't only remove rats but also wasps, mice, fleas, moles, cockroaches, bedbugs and many more types of household and garden pests.

Species of Rat

There are actually 2 kinds of rat which you may come across in Thorne, South Yorkshire or in fact anywhere else in the United Kingdom. They're the Brown Rat and the Black Rat.

The Brown Rat

The brown rat (street rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), sewer rat or common rat) is the most commonly found rat in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe (also North America). The brown rat (it can often be grey in colour) is normally four to nine inches in length (excluding the tail) and weighs in at 140 to 500g. It is invariably found wherever people are living. Nowadays thought to have originated in Central Asia, the brown rat was at one time deemed to have arrived from Norway (hence its name). Brown rats climb well and dig a lot, they have good hearing but bad eyesight, the females can give birth to 5 litters per year, they feed on just about anything (omnivorous) but favour grains and cereals.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

Also not a native species of the United Kingdom, the black rat, (Rattus Rattus), roof rat or ship rat first came to Europe from Southeast Asia (probably India). Understood to have been spread when the Roman Empire still existed, this rat quite possibly reached Continental Europe and the UK via spice shipments. The black rat was once common in the British Isles but was essentially driven out by the brown rat and is now not often seen. Weighing in at only 75 to 230 grams, the black rat reaches lengths of approximately 5" to 7". Black rats are notorious for spreading various diseases, most notably tularemia, bubonic plague, Weil's disease, listeria, rat bite fever, trichinosis, toxoplasmosis, typhus and salmonella.

Rat Sightings - Reporting

I'll go into more detail here, though this topic was highlighted further up the page. Should you witness rats in your own garden, in a public place or in a neighbours garden it is always a good idea to report it to the local council. Certain councils offer a free service for dealing with rats but payment is ordinarily needed for most pests like wasps, bed bugs and cockroaches. Sightings of rats may also be reported using the .gov webpage HERE. Click HERE to book your own rat catcher and get the matter sorted out straight away.

What Attracts Rats?

In spite of their seemingly cute appearance, with their pointy faces, furry bodies and twitching whiskers, mice and rats can be dangerous and are definitely not creatures that you want to be making a home in your house or garden in Thorne. Rats and mice have been known to cause fires and other problems around the home by gnawing through electric wires, plasterboard, plastic and wood. Spreading the likes of tularemia, bubonic plague, Weil's disease, listeria, rat bite fever, trichinosis, toxoplasmosis, typhus and salmonella, mice and rats can cause more than 30 sorts of disease. Among the things around your garden and home that are attractive to mice and rats are:

  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Mice and rats can squeeze through the smallest of holes and cracks, so be on the lookout for gaps around grills, crawl spaces, plumbing and entrances.
  • WATER - Busy little mice and rats have to drink, consequently water sources such as dripping sprinkler systems, leaky pipes, birdbaths and pet water bowls are a big attraction for these pests.
  • TRASH - Accumulations of garbage and garden waste heaped up on your property (particularly in the garden) will definitely attract rats and mice.
  • PET WASTE/COMPOST - Incredibly pet waste and even piles of compost can be attractive to rodents - there will be plenty of tasty morsels hiding in there!
  • CLUTTER - General jumble and clutter in an attic, storage shed or basement will be especially attractive to rats and mice, especially if there's a food source nearby.
  • FOOD - Food that's left lying around or discarded is perhaps the main attraction for mice and rats.

Rat Prevention Thorne

The most effective way to stop issues with rats and mice is to discourage them from the start. Therefore, even if you do not presently have a rat problem, deterring mice and rats has to be extremely high on your priority list. Amongst the principal factors behind rat infestations is domestic rubbish littering gardens. Supplying both the materials and location to build a nest will only attract them. If there is also a lot of food available the rats will be in paradise, so be aware that many bird seed feeders can attract rats, especially when they are susceptible to spilling over, and domestic food scraps should also not be easily accessible.
