Rat Bite Wounds

While they are not among the most commonplace injuries sustained by people in Uddingston, on the odd occasion rat bites do occur, and the effects can sometimes be dangerous. If you happen to stumble upon a rat in a confined environment, it could bite you if it feels cornered or pressured, therefore leave a clear exit route and try to avoid it.

These kinds of bites sometimes occur where rats are kept as pets (which is happening quite frequently these days), and you could be chancing it somewhat if you stick your hand in a rat's cage, no matter how tame it is. While they aren't necessarily serious, rat bites can turn nasty or even life threatening if they develop into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), consequently they must be avoided where possible. If it is not treated swiftly "rat bite fever" (RBF) can result in death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

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

  • Joint Pain

If are bitten by a rat you should immediately wash the affected area with warm water, apply an antibiotic ointment, and cover with a clean bandage. You should make an emergency appointment with your GP, or head to the nearest A&E, even if it doesn't seem that severe. If it is more than 5 years since you had your last tetanus jab, you should get one of these done as well, since rat bites can become a cause of infection.

We mentioned this subject previously, so now let's go into it a bit more. It is always advised to report it to the local authorities if you discover rats in a public place, in your own garden or in a neighbours garden.

Mole Problems

Uddingston rat catchers are occasionally also brought in to help remedy another similar type of pest, namely moles. By no means such disliked creatures, moles cause totally different issues than rats. Gardens and lawns are mainly at risk when you have a mole situation. Beautifully maintained lawns ruined by unsightly mounds of freshly dug earth are a sure sign of activity by moles. The favorite and humane technique to remove moles is by trapping.

Rat Prevention Uddingston

Dissuading rats and mice before they become a nuisance is certainly the easiest way of avoiding such issues. So, even though you do not currently have a rat problem, deterring rodents should be high on your priority list. Domestic waste cluttering up the garden is amongst the major reasons for rat and mouse infestations. Providing them with both the place and materials for nests will only attract them. In addition, refrain from providing easily accessible food by leaving domestic waste food around and putting out bird feeders with grain that is only going to attract them.
