If you happen to see rats in Waltham Cross, the chances are that they are going to be brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus), even though there are in fact two breeds of rats at present living in Great Britain; black (or ship) rats and brown (or common) rats. As you might be aware ship rats were responsible for the spread of the Great Plague (17th C) during which period they were extremely common. Black rats are quite scarce now and actually neither type is native to the UK, both of them coming from Asia.

Rat Bites

While not that commonplace in Great Britain, bites from rats certainly do occur from time to time, and in certain situations they can be dangerous. Without doubt, rats can bite humans when they feel stressed or cornered, so in a confined space it is advisable to stay out of their way, or leave them a clear exit route.

These sorts of bites sometimes occur when rats are kept as pets, and you could be chancing it somewhat if you poke your hand in a rat's cage, regardless how tame it seems. Although they aren't necessarily serious, rat bites can turn nasty or even fatal if they turn into "rat bite fever" (caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis), therefore they should be avoided where possible. "Rat bite fever", if it is left untreated, can result in death, and has has a 10% mortality rate.

Signs of Rat Bite Fever (RBF) - Among the symptoms and signs of "rat bite fever" are:

  • Muscle Pain
  • Vomiting
  • Joint Pain
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Rashes
  • Fever
  • Headache

In the unlikely circumstance that you ever get a rat bite, you will have to bathe the wounded area, put on a coating of antibiotic ointment, and cover it with a clean, sterile gauze or bandage. You must make an appointment to see your doctor, or head to the nearest hospital A&E, even if it doesn't appear to be that major. If it is more than 5 years since you received your last tetanus jab, you must get one of these done as well, because rat bites can easily become infected.

Rat Burrows

A thing that all rats love to do is burrow and dig, and their favoured place to burrow is adjacent to solid objects or structures like shed bases, paths, garage foundations and patios. Rats excavate substantial burrow networks that provide food storage, nesting places and shelter. Look out for holes with smooth edges, which have been rubbed by the continuous comings and goings of these busy animals. The entrances to burrows are commonly 2-4 inches in diameter. A good way to discover if rats currently using that specific burrow is to chuck some debris into the burrow and find out if it has been removed the following day.

Problems With Mice

Mice may be as much of a concern as rats, especially if they find their way into your home. Just like rats, mice breed quickly, leave droppings, gnaw at stuff, contaminate food and are typically a nuisance. Much the same approaches are typically employed to resolve mouse problems in Waltham Cross, in other words trapping and poisoning are preferred. Regardless of whether you've got an issue with rats or mice, head over to BARK and find a specialist Waltham Cross pest controller to sort it out for you.
