Tickhill Rat Catchers and Pest Experts

Tickhill Rat Catchers (DN11): Seeing rats in your home or garden is usually quite a horrifying experience and whilst it isn't so regular an occurrence in Tickhill these days, it is certainly not unusual. Rats breed fairly quickly and are likely to cause problems, particularly when their numbers get out of hand. An individual sighting of a lone rat will possibly not be too much of a concern, however if you are observing them frequently you'll want to do something about it.

Pest Control Quotes

There are 2 kinds of rat that you might come across in Tickhill, black rats and brown (common) rats. Its fairly improbable that you will ever come across a black rat, and if you have stumbled upon a rat just recently it's likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (or ship rats) were at one time common and were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague during the 17th Century, they are rather rare now, however when they are seen they are exceptional climbers, have good hearing, and the females can produce between 20 and 100 offspring in just one year.

Brown rats are normally larger than black rats (Rattus Rattus) and may weigh nearly half a kilogram, with a length of about 9 inches. To wear down their continuously growing teeth, common brown rats have to keep chewing things, which explains why they are the cause of so much damage. Timber is especially more prone to their attention.

Rats gnaw their way through pipes, woodwork, insulation and wires, spread disease, leave droppings, and generally cause a nuisance in businesses and homes in and around Tickhill. Householders need to report any sightings of rats to their local authority. You can also report problems with rats on the .gov website online HERE.

Checking for Rats

If you have a notion that you could have rats in your home or business, there are various means by which you are able to find out. You should look out for burrows or tunnels alongside solid surfaces, listen closely for scratching noises emanating from walls and lofts, particularly at night, keep your eyes peeled for droppings, they're darkish brown and look like large grains of rice, pay attention to gnawing in wires, wood and cables, especially in attics, watch for rub marks where their greasy fur leaves marks on walls and skirtings, search for footprints or tail trails in dusty areas or on loose soil.

Rat Prevention Tickhill

Discouraging mice and rats before they even show up is actually an effective way of avoiding such problems. Therefore, deterring rodents must be something to look at even though you don't have a rat problem at present. Household rubbish littered around the garden is among the major causes of rat and rodent infestations. You'll do little else but attract them if you give them both the materials and location to build a nest. When there's also plenty of food on offer your rats will be in heaven, so keep in mind that traditional bird feeders can attract rats, especially when they are liable to overflowing, and domestic waste food should also not be left lying around.

Species of Rat

There are only 2 types of rat that you're likely to come across in Tickhill, South Yorkshire or anywhere else in Britain for that matter. The Black Rat (Rattus Rattus) and the Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus).

The Brown Rat

In Tickhill, the remainder of the British Isles and Europe the most prevalent type of rat is the brown rat (common rat, Norwegian Rat (Rattus Norvegicus), street rat or sewer rat), this is the kind you are likely to see in your home or garden. The brown rat (it can sometimes be grey in colour) is normally four to nine inches long (not including the tail) and weighs in at 140 - 500 grammes. It is always found wherever people are living. This species was given the name Norway Rat (Rattus Norvegicus) because it was assumed to have come to the United Kingdom by boat from Norway. It's nowadays considered to have originated from Central Asia/China. Brown rats are omniverous (feed on pretty much anything) though they prefer to eat cereals, they have bad eyesight but good hearing, the female rats reach sexual maturity in about five weeks and often give birth to 5 litters every year (with up to 14 in each litter), they climb effectively and burrow a lot.

The Black Rat (Ship Rat)

Also not native to Britain, the black rat, roof rat or ship rat (Rattus Rattus) originally arrived in Europe from Southeast Asia. Most likely traveling in shipments of spices in the times of the Romans, the black rat eventually spread through Continental Europe. Pretty uncommon now in Great Britain, this rat was pretty much replaced by the more dominant brown (common) rat. Weighing only 75g to 230g, the black rat reaches a length of five to seven inches. Renowned for causing diseases black rats may be the cause of trichinosis, rat bite fever, toxoplasmosis, bubonic plague, typhus, Weil's disease, tularemia, salmonella and listeria.

What Attracts Rats?

With their twitching whiskers, pointy faces and fur covered bodies, some folk might find rats and mice to be rather cute, however they're not the kind of creatures that you want in your home or garden in Tickhill, and can be more dangerous than you may imagine. Mice and rats can cause damage to your home by chewing through plastic, skirting boards, electric cables and insulation materials, and are regularly to blame for fires and other issues. Over 30 different kinds of disease can be spread by rats and mice including trichinosis, rat bite fever, toxoplasmosis, bubonic plague, typhus, Weil's disease, tularemia, salmonella and listeria. A variety of different things will attract rats and mice to your home and garden including:

  • FOOD - Food left discarded or lying around is one of the primary attractions for rats and mice.
  • COMPOST/PET WASTE - Incredibly piles of compost and even pet waste can be attractive to rats and mice - there will be plenty of tasty titbits hiding in there!
  • CLUTTER - General clutter in an outbuilding, basement or loft will be particularly attractive to rodents, particularly if there is a source of food nearby.
  • HOLES AND ENTRY POINTS - Rats and mice can crawl through the tiniest of holes, so be on the lookout for gaps around doorways, grills, piping and crawl spaces.
  • WATER - Busy little rats and mice need to drink, consequently water sources like birdbaths, pet bowls, dripping sprinkler systems and leaking pipes are a big attraction for these pests.
  • TRASH/RUBBISH - Accumulations of trash and garden waste stacked up on your property (especially in the garden) will surely attract rodents.

Problems With Mice

Mice are often as much of an issue as having rats, in particular when they get into your home. While not so large, mice are still going to gnaw at stuff, breed rapidly, leave droppings and contaminate food. Also, just like rats, setting traps and poisoning are the favoured methods for solving mouse infestations in Tickhill. Tickhill rat catchers will also be glad to help you with mouse infestations, so get in touch with one or pay a visit to BARK to get the problem sorted.
